GC Rank Promotion.Follow

Hello there,

I am currently rank 8 (Chief Storm Sergeant) in my GC, and the max rank appears to be rank 12.

The guy who promotes you says I have to fulfil a "Trial" and I should pick it up from the Storms Commander.

However the Commanders says nothing. I have already completed the 2 ranks of Hunting Log that are required.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you been progressing your story quest as well? Maybe this trial requires going into an instance or dungeon that you do not have access to yet due to not having it unlocked in story mode. Just a blind guess but if I had to bet I'd put my money on this.

You probably need to pay for three promotions to move up to the next category.

I am basing this "guess" on the way it worked in version 1.0. There are basically small promotions within a grade, and then there are major promotions moving between grades. In the guild quartermaster tab there is a complete list of all grades across the top and you can see that there are generally 4 promotions within each grade. I suspect you have not yet got far enough.

What level are you on your highest class/job? I noticed that after doing the initial induction quests I was able to pick up the Dzamael Darkhold (sp?) quest from the NPC off in the corner, which might be what 'trial' it requires. If it's like 1.0, DD was one of the dungeons required to advance the GC rank/story (if I recall correctly).

I was 48THM at the time, and had already completed the Ifrit trial, so i'm guessing it's not related to that one as I received the same result as you saying I wasn't ready.

I am currently on the lvl49 Story Quest, so unless I have to finish the story, I am not sure this is the issue. But thank you. I have completed every dungeon thus far. As a note, the commander did have a trial which I completed a few ranks previously.

Yes, as I mentioned I am rank 8, which is the last rank in the "Tier 2" section of the tabs at the top. I have ranked up a few times by paying Seals, I think the last one was 8k seals. I also did both ranks of the Hunting Logs, which require dungeons that are only accessed through the story.

I have all Class/Jobs at 50, minus Arcanist. I have beaten Ifrit, Titan and Garuda, as they are tied the the Story.

For referance, you can see my rank/jobs at http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/1183605/.

There you can see my rank progress and anything I am missing?

Thanks very much.

Well heck, I don't know then Benji. I took a look at the achievements comparison, and it looks like you've already run DD as well as a good deal of the other end-game dungeons, so I guess that rules out that as the 'trial'. Maybe rank increase just isn't in-game until 2.1, but you'd think that they would have at least made the next available for us legacy players. If I see anything else in random chat, or forums or whatnot, i'll re-post for you.

Edit: Something else just occurred to me about this. I noticed on your GC achivements you haven't completed the GC hunting log as yet, as another idea for the 'trial'. It's the achievement titled 'Bump on a Log' at the bottom of the GC section.

Thank you Dallie, that would be most appreciated.

I will look into that as I am at work at the moment. But I am quite sure I have done that quest, but not 100%. Maybe its just not updated on my character page. For example I logged out last night as Bard, and it shows me as PLD.

I also thought mabye it was due to the game was not officially released (at that time) so I waited until today to make sure - but no luck.
You could be correct that it is not released til 2.1... but yes its odd the Tier 3 is "open" in the menu but not available.

Thanks very much for your info everyone.

Looking at the "Bump on a Log" achievement, this requires all Hunting Logs, rank 1,2 and 3.
However, You can only open Hunting Logs by Ranking up in the GC. I only have the first 2 ranks available as I cannot rank up to unlock the third Hunting Log rank.

Right, and I just re-read the flavor text once more when turning in a couple of items, and if you've completed GC rank1, and all available high-end 'trial' (dungeons since that's all we have thus far!) type of stuff for your end, I guess it's just a matter of not being available yet. I also looked at in-game achievements and only Rank 1 shows as available for points, so that is likely the case.

Have you done Dzemael Darkhold? That used to be required for old GC. I can't help you there, I'm insta 2nd Lieutenant from 1.0 :/ now stuck with a Commemorative Coin. You haven't hit the cap yet, you're still stuck in the Petty Officer tier.

Also, the way it worked in 1.0 is to purchased an item that cost 25,000 Seals to get to Mid-level officer tier. Things used to be pricey, I spent over 100,000 Seals in 1.0 for 2nd lieutenant weapons and now they cost 1/5 of that :/

I completed the story, and the quest popped on the Commander.

So now we know you must finish the story to advance the the last tier :)

Yes you do, mid-level officer tier is for lvl 50. In 1.0 you have to clear Castrum Novum but didn't need to do Rivenroad. At least you don't have to DODGE MAH LAZAH.
