Joining a Company ~ How to?Follow

#1 Oct 05 2011 at 7:34 AM Rating: Good
I did the new mission for the adders, but mission guy just gives me a run around (he has quest bubble). He mentions hearing what the other leaders have to say. Does that mean I need to do the 'listen to the speech' mission for each city state?

Yes. After you listen to the speeches of all 3 cities you go to the one you want to align with and complete the next quest. After completing it at the GC hall the quest NPC will have a blue icon on his head. Talk to him to get the spiel about joining. Part way through you have to tick a box to confirm which way you want to go. Then you are in and get get you choker and chocobo

Thanks, Rogue. Dunno if I'll have the seals for a chocobo yet, but I'm glad I haven't been wasting time running around doing the other two state's missions.

You need to do at the beginning quest in each city to advance. It's basically the same; fight something and hear a speech. The cut scenes are worth it though.

After that you can focus on one city.

You have to do about 8 more quests. I burned up 70 anima last night doing this exact same thing. Good luck!

Xeno is right. You have to do the 3 initial quests for the 3 nations. THEN you have to do another 3 quests, 1 for each nation. Finally, there's a quest for whichever nation you decide to dedicate yourself to.
I also burned up 75-80 anima last night doing this; however I did a test run with my company chocobo, and bentbranch to tranquil in 4 minutes is pretty sweet.

It appears that you can actually complete the second set of 1.19 quests for each nation before permanently assigning yourself to a company. So, this means if you want the extra seals and XP, you can complete 'Ceruleum Shock', 'Know Your Enemy' and 'Appetite for Destruction' before final lock-in. There will be a blue ! above the recruiter's head back in the company HQ after the appropriate nation's quest is completed, just complete the brief chat to finalize whichever nation you choose.

It's worth doing for a bit of story, in my opinion. Each is in fact, unique.

Is the choker an event item? I joined up np after doing the speech missions and bought my chocobo. I'm still shy of 1000 seals after buying the bird. Supply and provision stuff gives **** seals. Do I need to rush to get the seals to get a choker?

Just to throw this out there as this thread is a great starter's guide, but is there a minimum level requirement for doing all the above?

I was able to complete the "The Mail Must Get Through" for The Adders Nest as a level 24, but there is nothing after that offered to me. Looking through some quests lists, it appears the next ones don't become available until level 25.

So is level 25 the minimum to complete these quests, or was I looking in the wrong direction?

I was wondering about this:: once u complete the quests and join a GC and are then stuck to just that one GC what is the deal with the seals?

Not sure if all the seals I have on other 2 cities will be useless or should I spend all the seals for other 2 cities before choosing my allegiance?

On the one hand if anyone knows if seals for other cities may be usefull down the road for something or should they be used up on say dark matter?

Didn't do a great job of wording all that but any info or ideas on this would be most appreciated'!

I THINK, but I'm not 100% sure, that your seals for the other 2 companies become worthless, so I'd recommend spending them all now. Don't quote me on that, as it is possible I just heard it from someone on here and it isn't accurate, but I thought I remember reading that in the patch notes or the GC page on lodestone.

I'll quote you on that because it 100% accurate.

Your seals do become worthless from the other companies. However if you don't spend them then they still are being tallied behind the scenes on the server. Per the chance that they allow players to switch companies.

Can someone enumerate (or point me to a link with) the NPCs in each of the three cities that the GC quests start with?

I've been out of the game for 6 months and even at Level 48 am having a hard time jumping back in because of the changes. Not complaining, but just have to re-learn some things.

Thanks!

Nevermind, I've learned that they are accessible from a new option in the market wards teleport area.

In no particular order answering a few questions that were asked in this thread... sorry if they were already answered...

  • Seals from other companies are removed when you join one fully.
  • Ifrit grants 1500 seals, 3000 if you do it with all your own company party members.
  • The spiritbond+ collar is 1000 seals purchasable upon joining.

Could someone sum up a guide for a new player and getting their chocobo? I can't find a guide. Been taking bits of info here and there but still haven't unlocked it.

My game just crashed when it came time to name my bird.
