My concerns
As I'm sure that a lot of people are aware, the current quest completion rewards for generation 1 are minimal and sometimes the quests don't appear in the quest window which can't be helped for now.

This results in a lack of direction.

I can't say the same for the other generations because I haven't finished any of them on this Mabi but upon my first impression, I have used the wiki for almost every quest due to lack of direction.

I would also like to use Tarlach's first RP dungeon as an example. I completed a 3-floor dungeon and received nothing but a new quest. Not even items or experience. I feel like I lost more than what I gained. Not necessarily experience but mostly time. The story doesn't really apply at this point since everything is in Japanese currently and most people transferred from English Mabi.

My solution... maybe?
I can't say much for a solution since I've only thought of increasing the reward to increase the incentive to complete them just like official Mabi gives AP. Again, I can't say much and it may conflict with certain people but it's a proven method to push people to complete the quests. Learning about the lore or the plot or the story doesn't really apply here since most people come from the English version or already know the story. This is my reason why translating is less beneficial than quest rewards.

My question
My question is/ are: Are there any changes planned for the quest system and will there be improvements for generation quest completion rewards? What are your thoughts?

Probably not, as it would require implementing the entire Genesis update.

Which means re-doing every single quest in the generations by hand as almost none of them work the same they do post-Genesis.


But here's the thing.

You don't NEED to incentive people to do them.

it's a sand-box. They'll do them if they want to do them and they will do them for the story. because thats the only reason they exist and that you would choose to do them over just skipping via the strange cat if all you want is Pally or DK and don't care about the story.

I disagree Zanath, but only since Mabinogi EU used the same G1-3 as we currently do. However G1 also rewarded roughly 70-100 AP for completion; it just gives an added incentive to run G1 since it's age is definitely showing at this point due to the quest wait times (irl days for Aeira's books).
It would probably take time to adjust each individual quest too, and it'd be a ultra-low priority I feel.

Trouble is, how would it be approached with regards to those who've already completed it, or elves and giants? Seems unfair to those people.

I'm just gonna post this here but uhm, g1, g2 and g3 are optional.

If you take the time to invest in completing them, knowing there isn't much of a reward in your oppinion then why did you take the dicision to do them in the first place.

Simple answer: For every player that has completed the journal entry, they are rewarded for AP. I wouldn't expect every quest to have a reward because doing that would add more work. I agree with you that it's ultra low priority. No other way to put it

Simple answer: I skipped them. Except the first one because I apparently had to have 1 week of play time before I'm allowed to skip.
