I am locked out of Hyetta's quest :(. I need a Fingerprint Grape and that is supposedly gotten from an invader called Vyke. Since I cleared all the bosses in Liurnia before I reached this church he never invaded. Randomly remembered Hyetta yesterday and went googling on how to proceed and I realize I am out of luck. Do I miss out on anything special by not completing this quest?
Finished Ranni's quest and working on Fia's next. After that thinking on going to the Capital. Is Mt. Gelmir supposed to be before or after the capital?
Interestingly enough, my son just encountered Vyke and got that grape and he's completely done with the game. Even picked an ending. I'm pretty sure it was after he picked the ending anyway. If not, he was at least done with Farum and very close to the end.
Hyetta did not give me the frenzied flame seal though. Also, I realized I didn't have the Dragon seal that you can get in that tomb you unlock with 2 keys right in the starting area. Somehow I never went all the way up and beat the guy up there. I think I ran past him and got an item from there but didn't realize he dropped something. We saw it mentioned in a video about the best weapons, though it pales in comparison to my Golden Order Seal, which I never see listed in these rankings. Yet for me it has by far the best incantation scaling.
Now that we both beat the game (I did all 6 endings just for kicks - they really aren't all that different anyway, at least 4 of them), we went to watch those speed runners. And man is that disappointing. I'm talking about the 15 minutes one (that is apparently now down to 8). They don't talk about what they are doing (what's the point of an effing stream if they don't!?) and all it is is a bunch of force quitting and mega zips that require a specific frame rate on PC. I was super disappointed in that. I want to see a speedrun on console I guess where they aren't relying on system crap to cause glitches. I don't see the appeal in what they are doing *at all*. At least in the 15 minute run he had to beat one boss and showed at least some skill there. But I think in the newer ones they can skip all of them.
