We continue on to take a look on how newcomer players to Final Fantasy XIV can distinguish which things they should do. We don’t want them to be deterred at once after they have just created their account, right? So here is a little “Dungeon Guide” for them.
The Dungeon Quest Starters!
Here is the dungeon (instanced) unlocks that you can do if you have a new game account. These are pre-level 50. You can ask some friends or maybe a complete stranger to do these with you! Credits to the generous people of reddit!
Instanced Dungeon unlocks (pre-lv50)
Several of these dungeons contain mobs that are included in your Grand Company’s Hunting Log. For example, doing Halatali right after joining a Grand Company is a good way to get most of the 2000 seals needed for the My Little Chocobo sidequest. They are also a good source of experience, especially as the gap between new dungeons in the main story increases.
As a hint, the fastest way to Vesper Bay is through the Ferry Docks next to the Arcanist’s Guild, but it requires an 80 gil payment every time.
