Can anyone explain why, in a game with so little content, that so many of these new quests are in danger of being forever untouchable? Being unable to do each city-state's missions is bad enough, but from what I've experianced in 1.19..
The starter NPCs each got a new quest, only accessible if you started in that city-state? Okay, I can live with that.. But I have friends who are lamenting joining a company before doing each of the 6 company quests leading up to the decision (two in each city-state). I was careful in doing all of those before choosing, but..
It seems I'm locked out of four other quests now, two in Limsa and two in Ul'dah (since I went with the Twin Adder). "Saving the Stead Instead," "The Cove," "Prying Eyes," and "Different Strokes" are the quests that I can apparently never do now. My guess is the only reason I can access Gridania's "Eternal Recurrence" and "The Pen Is Mightier Than the Spear" is because I chose Gridania's company.. Or, hadn't yet not chosen a different one. Either way, it's more content I'm being locked out of, for what reason?
As someone who was always excited when I would hit 20, 30, or 36 on a class, simply because it meant I had something to do other than grind EXP, I find this rather annoying. Now, I'm pretty sleep deprived as I type this, so if my facts are crooked, please do correct.
Edit - My main point here is, it's already unfortunate that you can only choose one path, but now they're adding insult to injury, not even letting us access everything possible on that one path.
