Final Fantasy XIV previews the upcoming Gnath beast tribe quests

Oh, these bugs.
Even if you’ve never played Final Fantasy XIV, you can probably make a decent guess about how the Gnath work. They’re little insectoid people; obviously they all obey a hive mind. Not including that particular bit of species-wide characterization would be like not having early quests to kill innocuous rats right outside of the city limits. But what happens when a group of Gnath start breaking away from that mind? That’s the central conceit of the upcoming Gnath beast tribe quests.

As with prior beast tribe quests, players will aid and support a group of Gnath through various daily quests. These quests will also scale with level in the same way as the prior patch’s Vanu Vanu daily quests. If you like new decorations, love new mounts, or just really can’t get enough of insect people breaking free of singular hive-minds, you’ll want to take part in these quests.

krieglich @collagen123 To be fair, the beast tribe dailies have been getting better since Ash & Sylph were implemented.  Aside from the fates (which are now on ~15 minute respawn timers), the Kobold & Sahagin dailies can be done in minutes.  Vanu ones didn’t even have fates tied to them, and most of the time involved was flying across the Sea of Clouds.  We’ll have to see if the Gnath follow suit, but if they do it shouldn’t be too bad.

I mean yeah Dailies suck….But its not like this is the only thing coming out with this patch and they are trying to “give the illusion of content” each of these patches for ffxiv are Pretty damn large adding raiding content, Primal FIghts, New gear, New Crafting recipes, and changes to current things like Diadem. This is just a garnish to go along with the main course….So Ill take some dailies

@collagen123 At least the dailies in B&S are really short runs. FF XIV has some of the most annoying dailies ever.

hardy83 @collagen123 Dailies have pros and cons.  The pros being that it allows developers to set a specific pace and lets players with limited daily free time hop into the game, spend 30-60 minutes doing dailies, then hop off or go do other things.  It’s a win for developers in that they can make content specifically stretch out to a certain length, and it’s a win for more casual players or those who don’t want to hardcore grind reputations/other stuff.
‘course the cons are that it can stretch content out further than it should be stretched out, and the slower pace can be annoying for non-casual players who have more daily time to spend on that stuff.
At least FFXIV balances it out last I checked by only having dailies apply to the reputations which are mostly/completely optional.  Then everything else is either weekly or free to farm/grind however much you want.

@collagen123 Yeah. Dailies are the lazy way for developers to make “content”.

If I wanted to spend a few hours everyday doing something tedious, I’d just  get a second job. lol
So every time I see a daily now in MMOs, I just say “nope”, and skip it. I don’t care if the reward is nice, it’s not worth it.

I’m happy for people that like these but I’m so sick of daily quests… I remember doing the Sylph ones for like a month to get that stupid Green Plant mount can’t remember the name now….. Never Again………
