YoshiP has said numerous times that the Relic Quest will definitely change, and we can attest to it by the fact that all 3 hamlet defenses are now low level FATES (unless they choose to add a higher level attack in there somewhere?). We’ve also discovered that any relic weapon with 2 materia melds in progress is now completely obsolete, /comfort ; ;
This is just a drop in the bucket for what has changed for Relic Quest, a part of me is rather worried that the salts and ores are also no longer useful! But then again, bring on the new challenges! The old one was just a buncha time sink annoyance anyways ^^
Today, Hvinire has this to share with us:
On the Properties of Beastmen will no longer be used in A Realm Reborn. Likewise if you had Soiled Promissory Notes left over from 1.0, they’re no longer within your inventory and have been converted into On the Properties of Beastmen, which you can, as you mentioned, exchange for Grand Company seals via Grand Company Expert Delivery.
