To play most efficiently, you should try to keep up with all of these as you progress the story. Better buffs from food and being able to farm useful crafting items are invaluable! 

EditAssigned Quests

These Assigned Quests are done in order as part of the story. As these are completed, more maps, NPCs, tools, and monsters are unlocked. 

EditOptional Quests

There are optional quests for every monster, which we won’t list here. However, these are the optional quests you’ll need to complete to unlock more items to farm at the Botanical Research Facility,  Boosters, Mantles, monsters, and more. You can tell an Optional Quest will get you something special by the ellipses next to the quest name.

Most of these must be unlocked in order, by completing quests for the same quest giver. Make sure to talk to everyone in Astera and at the Research Base with ! over their heads – that means they have a quest for you, or you completed a quest they gave you.
