Minfilia appears to be lost in thought.

— In-game description


Optional rewards


Minfilia, who is in The Solar, now has the Feature Quest Feature QuestA Recurring Problem available in addition to this quest. Feature QuestA Recurring Problem starts a quest chain that will be required by patch 2.5 MSQ Main Scenario QuestGood Intentions. It's a good idea to pin this quest to the top of your quest list so that you do not lose it in your Journal when you become blocked later. Once you have completed Feature QuestIn a Titan Spot and cleared Trial The Navel (Hard) (as verified by the green checkmark at the top right) you are done with the MSQ requirements. The Primal Quests line is level-appropriate to do at this point, though completing the MSQ up to Main Scenario QuestIt's Possibly a Primal will give you an Item Level 70 weapon and accessories to go with your ilvl 90 job quest gear.

  • Alphinaud seizes the opportunity to make a bold counter-proposal: move the Scions' headquarters to Mor Dhona, beyond the borders of Ul'dah and the other great nations. Though Minfilia makes a show of listening to the young Elezen's reasoning, she is not to be convinced, decrying his idea as reckless beyond words before unceremoniously dismissing him. As you silently watch Alphinaud take his leave, you sense that, beneath their heated words, another conversation was taking place...
