Quests are the tasks provided to the players that help them earn the rewards. As it is also a known fact that each game has a particular storyline, these quests are responsible for the progress and revelation of the game’s storyline. The storyline of your game will move a step ahead when you keep accomplishing the quests.
Moreover, these quests also enable you to unlock the game’s unique features, including Grand Company access, ffxiv mounts, ffxiv dungeons, ffxiv ether currents, ffxiv mog stations, trials, as well as airship travel. As you unlock these features, the storyline of your game keeps on progressing.
Start and Accept Quests:
You can add new quests to your list of current duties by accepting quests from the non-player characters. You will have to click right the exclamation mark that can be seen above the head of these players; once you click, a quest window will come up. All the details of objectives and rewards of the quest will appear; click on the accept button present on the lower left to get started. You can simply click the quest title from the duty list displaying on the right side of your screen to review the quest in the journal.
