Dear Square Enix.

Remember when you changed the Chain's of Promathia missions not long ago? You removed the level cap for the areas to make the missions obtainable and easier for more people, so that more people could experience and enjoy the storylines of the game. Currently, Zilart, Chains of Promathia, the three Nations (Windurst/Bastok/San d'Oria) and even Treasures of Aht Urghan missions can be done fairly easily, most with one, two, or three people and the hardest ones with four to six people. Everyone shares the Zilart/Chains of Promathia/Treasures of Aht Urghan missions so it's easier to find people to complete them with, furthermore the three nations (Bastok/Windurst/San d'Oria) missions are notably easier since you have to find people from a specific nation to do them with generally speaking.

The thing that troubles me is the Wings of the Goddess Missions. Not the main missions, but rather the three nation questlines that are more or less three different mission lines in Wings of the Goddess. It is incredibly difficult to find people who do these and generally most people only tend to do the San d'Orian ones. Even then, not many people do these but the worst part is there are many fights which get harder as you go through the story and at some points require a full party or more of experienced people to get through. It has proven to me impossible to get the most recent ones done over the last few months.

I know some people are lucky enough to have a "static" group, meaning a group of friends who stuck together and followed through the missions from the very start together. But for most of us, considering how many people have quit, or are not on the right mission, or the right nation, or a bunch of other factors we are simply stuck and unable to progress any further. It also hurts that you have to do the main mission storyline to continue on with them at times, and that there are many many long missions and quests in between, so it's incredibly difficult to get people "caught up" as well. Once again, hardly anyone is doing these missions and it is incredibly difficult to get people together for them so we can progress, especially with all the factors I listed in.

I have been trying my best, looking for people, shouting for members, and trying to do these missions for months to no avail. This is with having much free time at night as well, I can't imagine what the people with less time than I and the more casual people are going through. They simply are unable to get through it.

Please adjust either the difficulty, requirements, or something to make getting through the Wings of the Goddess Three Nation Storylines easier and more do-able for people. I would very much like to experience the story myself.

Yea, mini expansions did this the correct way.

Let anyone help, regardless of nation or quest. They simply don't progress in the mission line unless they are at the mission/quest themselves. In addition it wouldn't be so bad to have a NPC selling key items that allow you to get augmented rewards by helping out.

It really isn't that people won't help you, it just exist too much content now for people to have time for anything but their own things. You are lucky if you find people who share your goal, and without any hope if you are after something with few people interested.

I agree and think this should apply to all mission/quest battlefield content. FFXI has become more accessible as the years have gone on, and I think that's great. This would definitely be another step in the right direction.

this is a good topic and me and some good players got to most recent missions recently however the finding people bit was very hard plus you needed be on same mission to help out, so maybe make all missions so anyone can join even if they not at that point.

Remove the City nation pre-quest requirement. I was expecting at least SOME sort of tie-in, but instead it just did the opisite, screwing up the timeline of events and making the 2 plots incoherent with each other...

What's the point?
