Hi all, I have done all 3 grand company starter quest and have accumulated about 1k points from 3 grand companies. I'm now at the stage where I can decide to join up permanently in Maelstorm.

Here are my questions:

1) Can I go back to the other 2 companies to make use of the points I have with them after I become a member of the Maelstorm?

2)If not, what shall I buy from the other 2 companies before I join the Maelstorm and no longer have access to the other companies items?

Happy weekend!

1) No, once you join, you will still have the points, but can not spend them at the other two.

2) up to you and the classes you play, etc. Each nation has different weapons for different classes. Armor is mostly the same options, just different looks. I bought one of the level 25 DoH body pieces and spent the rest of my points on consumables, ironwill/hide ungents, dark matter, etc.


Also, if you do all the quest, you can end up with about 2200 for each city if you run Toto for each. You can do the toto-rak quest (1000 seals) for each city once until you join up. This will give you more to spend. You do not have to beat toto, just make it to the moogle, which means you only need 1 person willing to run with you. Should be able to duo this at about 28-30ish I would think, just might not be able to take out the boss.

Your points and other company names disappear from the list in your menu so use those points before you choose. I bought lots of manuals to get my DOLs to 50 and jerked beef to clear my points.

Thought you could only hold 1 manual of each type at a time? I was debating using a manual, giving one to each of my retainers, and whatever before choosing for sure... but then I said ***** it, too much effort for something that may change.

I think he meant he bought them one by one, thought I'm not sure either.

I was thinking of that too, using the manuals for exp boost but then it is gonna take me a long time to use them up. I want my own bird soon! Maybe I'll get the DOL and DOH gear. The Ul'dahn Jerkin looks ****.

I bought them one by one ,these quest are boring to power through you need to take breaks. The DOL manual last about 20 minutes or about 2 leves. Chocobos just replace Quick from what i use if for so use the extra points.FF11 your **** was stuck 20 minutes on these birds or you died or had a long walk to make up.Crafting manual added about a hundred to each craft too.

It took me 2 days of casual playing to bring up miner from 12 to 22 using the survival manuals. Used up 2 crafting manuals and also bought the gridanian doublet for +20 output before I went ahead and joined limsa for my bird.
