@G4L: those timed quests expire when it becomes impossible for you to complete them — otherwise, you can conceivably complete them anytime you feel like it, provided you are physically able to do so (e.g. you have to be able to beat the monsters you're after, lol). the game makes it pretty obvious when you've hit these points of no return, so to speak, and you'll know them once you've hit them. just save often and be prepared to go back and do things when you realize you've hit these points. :3

@TysonQ7, @G4L: You're talking about that 'With Great Gratitude' quest or whatever, right? I've been through that cave a total of twice now (once exploring, once to get the mushroom) and it's easy as hell to avoid all the monsters inside. Even if you do manage to trigger the spider's aggro while picking up the mushroom, if you just run like hell and don't look back, you'll be fine. i touched him on accident while getting the mushroom, so i know from experience that you'll be okay if you run :3

Please, everyone, listen to Reala. This thread gets cluttered enough without endless double, triple, and even quadruple-posting that's been happening lately., and the one-word or 'me too' style posts need to end. If you need to add something to a post you just made, use the 'Edit' link located to the upper right of your latest comment. If you're adding more than one person at a time, please wait until you've added everyone you want to add and then make one comment to the thread letting them all know at once — trust me, they'll be able to read and see that they've been added. We understand your enthusiasm, but it is not fair to let two or three users run roughshod over the rest when everyone wants to be added just as badly as you. Please be respectful of your fellow users! :3

When does the combat start really making sense? I mean, I get it, but it's all a bit chaotic at the moment.

the more you play, the more sense it makes — definitely do some sidequests. all that practice beating up monsters to steal their pelts and claws and the like, it definitely helps when it comes time for a boss fight. chaos is kinda the name of the game, but if you can control that chaos, you'll get by. :3

For goodness' sake, drop the wrangling, please. Wikipedia is not a valid source for anything; it is too easily edited by misinformed individuals or vandalized by trolls — even they acknowledge the problems inherent in their own model of operation. The best thing you can do if you want to try and use Wikipedia as a source for something is pick through any available references for your article(s) of choice and see if you can find the info you want to share in those references. Just using a Wikipedia page as backup for a statement you'd like to make is asking to have your foot shoved into your mouth.

first, since it would totally be a spartan i'd have on my hands, I would clone him 299 times and tell him that downtown had been invaded by the Persians. then i'd kick back and watch the chaos unfold :3

Star Trek is the one with Jedis and that big round gate thing, right?

**Asides Starfy**

Oh, too late, because I replied to it. Yep, spam is wild right now. Same on Game Informer. On second thought, when I said you could go to them for advice, I just noticed it may not be a very bright idea to ask a competitor for advice. Yeah, just redo the banning system to have a method for spammers.

We do have a system in place, thank you. It screens about 80-90% of the normal spammers I used to have to scan through and ban manually. The very few that make it through usually wind up banned before they ever bother getting around to posting, and the even fewer than that that actually make it to the forums and begin posting, we take them out as soon as we can. One lucky spammer does not an epidemic make.

Please remember that the Nlife Network is a labor of love; we're all here as volunteers to give you the best sites and communities we possibly can. When spammers hit, we will take care of it as soon as we are able, but in the meantime, we appreciate your patience, the reported comments, and above all else, you all not going out of your way to make more work for us in terms of comment deletion in otherwise normal threads.

@G4L: sorry, i meant cylinders, lol. there's a pretty good guide up on the GameFAQs Xenoblade forum... basically, the idea when you go in to craft gems is first to refine the traits you want into cylinders as close to 100% as you can possibly get without going over (100% or more yields a gem, of course), and then use those high-percentage cylinders to get into Heat (over 200% for that trait) and possibly Mega Heat (over 300%) so that you wind up with a gem (or two in the case of Mega Heat) a level above that of the materials involved (get level IV gems using level III materials, for example). It's tricky, though, and it takes a bit of trial and error to figure out the best team with who you've got at the moment for refinement (i've been using Sharla where I'm at because of her green-flame bonus), but Shulk/Reyn seems to be pretty much the best for actual crafting with the refined cylinders, hands-down.

One thing that's handy to keep in mind is that you can start the crafting process even though you don't have any traits at 100%; you can hit 'confirm' at any time so long as you've chosen two or more materials to craft with.

@G4L: actually, i'd suggest practicing with some of the better crystals you pick up until you've got refining them into canisters and getting into Heat down pat. there's no sense bumbling around with good stuff later on if you don't know exactly what you're doing with it.
