Conclusion:

While you’ll still want to ensure you’re completing the Main Scenario Quest (MSQ), other quest lines, and leveling other classes, this checklist should help optimize your progression through Eorzea.

  4. Dustin L Kempcole says:

    Don’t forget the weekly Fashion Report.

  7. Astral Baal says:

    Should 100% add this to a auto resetting tick list if possible.

  8. mochi says:

    there’s one like what you’ve suggested called Questhog – good thing is that it’s free, but it offers a customisable list and etc if you pay iirc

  9. Sippi says:

    You also have the Doman Enclave Reconstruction for the weeklies

  10. V B says:

    Second the inclusion of Doman Enclave Reconstruction (turn 20K of vendor items into up to 40K, depending on progression). Also, quick correction: the weekly Squadron Missions are NOT called Command Missions! Those are infinitely repeatable NPC-supported dungeon runs. The correct in-game term for the weeklies is Priority Missions.
