I have just recently returned to FFXIV after a few months break (Downing the same NMs for months got me a little bored). With that being said I've been back for about a week now and I am diffidently enjoying the new content! I have completed my first "Into The Dark" quest and got my new CON Arm (Love it!), and found out I won't be able to attain the seals required (4,000) for my shield until 1.19 *sad face*. Aside from doing the new raids I have been completing each and every quest I can find from each of the three major cities and its been a blast. I'm rounding out my last couple of quests from Ul'dah, and have already finished all I can find in Grid and Limsa.

I ran into a "Behest" like encounter while questing in Grid, I can't remember the name of the npc but it was a rank 30 or so defense thing, I was on my 50 CON and killed about 30 of the buggers before just abandoning the poor guy/gal. Can anyone shed some light on what/where these things are, maybe a link or something, just thought it was interesting and don't recall reading anything about this in the patch notes.

Now on to the real reason I made this thread, I really want to go through all content (aside from each and every class quest). So I am looking for anyone with info on possible quests that aren't as obvious as the ones in the main cities, and also a list or link if possible of how the above mentioned defense encounters work. It seemed to me that it wasn't going to end so that is why I just stopped.

Sorry if this was a bit long and/or boring, just want to do EVERYTHING I can in the game =P

Thanks in advance guys ^^b

Just be aware, while you may meet the requirements for quests/missions... sometimes they don't appear until the next leve reset depending on when you met the prerequisits(I know I spelled that one wrong, it's almost as hard as T H E)

*EDIT*

I really need to fully read posts before replying...

I think you're refering to one of the "unofficial behests"... you kill tons of crap, at the end a chest appears. I haven't seen a mob total yet, but when I did it I swear I killed 50 mobs before others showed up and then it was still another 5 min or so until the mobs stopped spawning.

It's rare to see someone be so confident about their shyness.

See if you can catch the GM Imperial Legatus in Camp Horizon >_> that's the hardest so far.

There is a storyline involving the Seventh Ubral Era (apocalypic style event) and Archons (servants/manefestations of the gods). There is a second storyline dealing with the emminent invasion of the Garleans. The event you described is kind of a random occurence. Every now and then at Camps Tranquil, Horizon and Bloodshore there will be an 'invasion' of Gaerlean imperial troups. They will basically flood the area and you need to fend them off. Once you are sucessful (it can take a while) you can head back to the nearby NPC shouting about it and get a rweard of desapected crystals. These crystal can be exchanged for shards or a Perigrine Helm.

In regards to quests and the like, there are 2 good threads on the official forum

List of All Sidequests (work-in-progress)
Lodestone Achievement Guide

Currently there are:
10 Story/Main Scenario Quests
51 Class Quests
55 Sidequests (from ordinary people around Eorzea)
18 Company Quests (6 x3 towns)
17 Event Accomplishments
- 6 quests in the easter event, plus accomplishments for obtaining each of the 5 hats
- 1 quest for summer event, plus accomplishments for obtaining each of the 5 swimsuits
4 "Purple" Events - Seventh Moon Rising, The Empire Strikes First, A Taste of Victory, Rhapsody in White.

The Purple events are special accomplishments you can get by interacting with certain people at random times. The first one was pre 1.18, obtained by talking to Alfgar in Uldah or andother random spawning NPC at camps. The Empire Strikes Back is the sequel to that event, introducing the occurences of Imperial Invasions. A Taste Of Victory is obtained after defeading a horde of Imperials when they invate. Rhapsody in White is from exchanging Deaspected Crystals for the Perigrine Helm


That is most of the story-based quests and such. If you are a accomplishment junkie (like me) there are also a number of other acheivements that you can obtain (they get listed on your History page on Lodestone)

200 Class/P.Rank Level ups (in increments of 5)
86 Aetheryte Camps/Gates (there are 87 in total but you dont get an accomp for your starter city)
42 Faction Quests (you get an accomp for completing each faction leve, but not feild or battlecraft leves)
25 Roaming Notorius Monsters Kills
3 Faction Levequest Notorius Monsters Kills
4 Company Dungeon Boss Kills
105 Skill books bought with Marks
36 'Number' accomplishments for reacing levels of Local/Regional Levequests completed, enemies killed and max gil from a leve (total number of accomps is estimated)


I personally use an excel spreadsheet I made to keep a track of my progess with SP and Accomplishments


Edit: Side note if anyone is interested, in order to buy all skills and training books on all classes you will need 1,057,000 guild marks across DoW, DoM, DoH and DoL
