Top Ten: #10 - As in Rank Ten (Bastok)

So I finally have decided to start up the good ol' Top Ten List from the home office in Riverside, California: Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish -- 2009 in Vana'diel.

This isn't going to be an in-order list for all of them, especially the personal in-game stuff. The top few are, of course, going to be obvious and not just me...

The first one on the list -- #10, if you will -- came about largely by accident.

It was sometime over the course of the year, and I kinda fell into it by accident. One of those things that a couple or three people on Leviathan basically were at the same point (I think start of Rank 7) that I was at in the Bastok main storyline.

The going was fairly smooth, as we had some competent people running the thing and the wiki basically helping us out... Soon, we were face-to-face with Zeid and had our Bastokan flags!

It was actually rather nice to see out one of the nation storylines, but I'm too attached to my outpost warps to try either of the others. :)

But still, it was nice to actually see one of the strong points (until the mini-expansions) of Square-Enix play out, and thanks to those involved.

Congrats on finishing a nation storyline! I've finished one so far, San d'Oria's, on my second main, and the conclusion to that story is truly amazing. I'm also on the final mission for my actual main character, and it's been a truly epic story.

I would say, if you want to do another nation's missions, go for it! Your OP quests are now saved so that if you change back to Bastok later you'll still have them.

With rank 9 windy and rank 10 sandy, I think I am qualified enough to say this: you will not regret changing nations for long enough to do their missions.

I understand that, but the thing is that I rely on them so much for getting from place to place. :)
