eff me this game is freakin' huge! i think i spent a solid eight hours over the course of last night and this morning just running around picking up collectables and doing sidequests. I kept getting lost, Colony 9 is huge and gorgeous! I finally had to force myself to stop doing sidequests and advance the story ffs, though, so now i'm about to leave the Colony and head out into the rest of the world as we know it, lol (figures, i'd just gotten used to Colony 9's layout and now i have to leave) :3
that said, i mentioned this to someone else earlier, but the similarity of the quests to how WoW works confuses me because only some of them do you need to go back to the people who gave you the quest to pick up the reward, not all. It seems to mainly be the creature-killing quests that are automatic, but i damn near killed myself messing around with the time system, trying to see exactly when who came out where and blah-blah-blah only to finally locate one of the people i was looking for, and he didn't react at all when i talked to him. I'd completed two of his 'go kill these things to make our colony safer' quests and he wasn't interested in me at all, and then when i hit up the store i noticed i had more money than i'd had before, so i can only assume that i'd received the reward automatically. Maybe I've missed the cues (which is very likely, lol), but is there an easier way to tell whether or not you have to make the jump/trek back to where the quest-giver was in order to receive the reward?

Been a while since I played it but think some quests/events can't be activated until your rating in a specific area is of a high enough level.

@theblackdragon If you hit - then look at your quest it will tell you that half of it is complete. There will be a check on the item you got and another box for the return to that person. I just started noticing that once you beat a monster from a quest it will say 1-2 or 3.

I'm finding this game way too distracting. I would much rather be playing it right now rather than working!

You're correct @Reala. A majority of quests aren't available, until your affinity rating for an area reaches a certain amount of stars. As you complete the quests that are available, your affinity rating will increase. As your affinity rating increases, the villagers will trust you more and openly express more of their issues. I've completed 35 sidequests in Colony 9, and my affinity rating is still only 2 out of 5 stars. Sometimes villagers and soldiers without names will have sidequests for you too. I'm challenging myself to complete every sidequest in the game. Which is supposedly between 480-490 sidequests in total.

I started playing it yesterday and i'm currently in Guar Plains. It's fun to explore and just stare at hte scenery. However this game is HARD, there are some extremely hard and high level monsters running around. ToS gave me a hard time too, so Xenoblade stopping my tracks frequently is a plus.
I am currently playing Sonic Generations, Sonic transformed, Runner 2, and The Last Story.

@theblackdragon, you can see which period of time villagers are present, by looking at your affinity chart in your journal. Just higlight the specific villager you are looking for.

Yeah SKTTR! Don't you know ignorance is a bliss? Even if that is true, I'll still have less sidequests to complete when I return.

the game shows you how — you should be able to pull it up in the 'tutorials' menu — but you'll need Shulk to use an Art that has 'break' as an effect (either his main talent works or that one Art that hits multiple enemies in the front of the group), then you'll need Reyn (or another character who joins you; idk how far along in the attack you are) to use his Art that has 'topple' as an effect ('wild' something for Reyn, and then the other character also has a topple move iirc). first Break, then Topple, then just go ham on 'em when they fall. :3
@G4L: thank you, i'll check that out when i get home :3@tech: thanks, bro — i'll take a closer look at my quest log and see if i can figure it out :3

The game isn't that hard if you do the side quests. You end up leveling up quick this way and the main story becomes easier.

I'm exactly 21 hours in, and I've completed 55 sidequests in Colony 9. I just received two sidequests that I'm required to complete, before I advance the story any further. These are the first sidequests I've received that have the stopwatch icon. Anyways, the Monado is F'ing awesome! I'm so glad I finally have it in my hands, because now I only have to worry about the gems I'm going to utilize in Shulk's weapon. I tried gem crafting for the first time, and I really have no idea what I'm doing. I created two rank 2 gems, though. Is that fairly good, because I really don't know? I guess practice makes perfect in this case, because the gem crafting instructions are pretty vague.

When you complete the instructions, if you get a pop-up screen with a green "quest completed" icon, you don't have to return to the quest giver.

I haven't really played much of this game... I might trade it in. I kinda want to save up for a 3DS. I mean I have enough to buy one but I want a game too.

I recommend you put some decent time into it before deciding whether or not to sell it, as it will likely be difficult and expensive to get another copy down the line. At least play through the first big Mechon battle.

I already been playing for 15 hours. I only did about 2 side quests. I guess I can keep it a while longer after I am done with Warioware I will try again.
