Really Square Enix? EDM music playing while we fish? I didn’t know whether to get up and start a rave or finish catching a Murk Grouper. Needless to say, the 1.09 update went live yesterday and we here at ATQNE.COM decided to take a closer look at a few of the small additions to the game.
If you haven’t had a chance to play the new update (I don’t blame you), the timed quest is back with a new ranking system. It’s based off of a point system called “quest points” where you complete the listed quest and get rewarded with points. That sounds easy enough right? Once you’ve completed your quest, in this case fishing, you get a reward of 50QP. After that, depending on how many fish you catch will determine your ranking on the leaderboard which updates both hourly and daily. If fishing isn’t your thing, the next timed quest starts on May 1st. You have until May 8th to complete the first round of the fishing quest, which is not that far away.
Although I like fishing, I really don’t feel I should try to out fish anyone on a leaderboard to get more QP. I’d rather it have a set number of fish, weight, or type and go then after it. Depending on the weight of the fish determines the reward. Nonetheless, I personally can’t wait for the next timed quest since this one really isn’t up my alley.
Tell us how you feel about the new update in the comments below.
