    All the nice things I've seen people say about the Hilde quests in the past have thus far seemed incredibly justified

    hildibrand is great because it's literally the animators attempting to push the boundaries of what they can show in cutscenes, and if it winds up looking like janky garbage they can just go "it's cool this is the comedy quest"

    My second dungeon, I admitted that I was new to the game, but my tanking was pretty solid, and the healer was really nice. Told me how to tank the blob boss, and complimented me every time I did it correctly. So, she got my commendation.

    I have no idea what commendations do, but now I have a whole stack of them.

    I adore the Hildy questlines

    I even did the Inspector guy spin-off in Foundation, you get his cool glasses and a glam robe from them

    when I got married in-game, my... partner? and I dressed up like Hildibrand and Nashu

    that blob boss is wild because there is basically no "puzzle boss" like it again in leveling dungeons ever

    The 1,500-commendation achievement robe is pretty regal.

    I don't have the 3,000-commendation mount yet, just under 200 away there, but it's similarly regal.

    The Hildebrand quests are just really funny to think about in context of the greater narrative. Y'shtola or someone out investigating Ascians wondering what the WoL is up to, while you're just running around with this dipshit doing weird dances.

    It also makes it incredibly jarring whenever Godbrand happens to wander into the main plot from time to time.

    The early commend outfit just makes you look like the pope.

    Which considering you likely earnt them all healing is apt.

    I changed to lalafell right before I started learning DRK

    and she actually looks perfectly suited to the role

    it's probably my favorite class I've tried in terms of story and play

    I'm looking at MCH and any other class with a huge fucking rotation, in comparison, and making a sour face

    hoping Shadowbringers makes MCH fun, for me

    because right now I'm there entirely for aesthetic

    You'll have to have ShBr bought and installed but otherwise I would assume they'll be available as soon as the xpac is up.

    As a new player, should I focus on one class? Or switch up? I'm rather far ahead of the main story, in comparison to my class, and I've barely done any sidequests.

    And what's with these creepy white haired twins following me around? I keep seeing them in the background of cut scenes, and now they finally talked to me during a memorial service.

    depends on how fast you wanna blast through the main story

    if you want to do it as fast as possible? focus on one class/job

    if you want to take your time, learn how to dungeon well, and experiment a lot? switch up to your heart's desire


    and those twins ain't creepy

    they're actually super cool!

    the twins are great

    and stick to one thing or switch it up as much as you'd like

    technically there's a bonus to how fast other classes level once you get at least one to cap, but you don't need to be optimal or whatever to have a good time

    I've been doing every sidequests I find, so whenever I'm significantly ahead of the msq I switch to lower level job closer to the story level, level that for a while, rinse and repeat.

    I've actually got eight characters across four servers. The Roegadyn was one of the initial four I made way back in 2014 before I realized that you didn't need to make alts to play different classes, but I kept them anyway. Leveled up from around 7 to 24 just overnight.

    If I have a gripe with this game so far, it's the limitations on the things you can queue for on the duty finder, and the number of quests you can track at one time. 5 quests seems too few, and only being able to queue for one daily roulette at a time is a bit of a bummer
