    A Thirst Before Time

    In the quest "A Thirst Before Time" you HAVE to do an optional task of the quest "A Thirst of Eternity" to even start.
    I'm german and i take time to translate and understand informations in the game. Not to mention that you need to remember them. Now this optional tasks consists of 12-13 question a npc asks you in a LIMITED time (5 seconds each). Now there is no chance, that i can understand the english question, remember the information or look them up and chose the correct answer in the few seconds you have on each question. And i can't stand stress that easily. This is not a request to make it easier. Please remove the time limit, so i can simply finish the quest.

    I'm sorry that im not born with english as my first language and that i don't have a perfect memory.

    What you could do, is take a piece of paper, go to a wiki, and write down all 12-13 questions, and write their correct answers right beside them.

    When you go to do the quest, have the piece of paper right in front of you, and take note of key words in each question, perhaps the last two words so that you can quickly scan over the questions and quickly find the answer that way.

    You don't even need to fully translate it doing it this way, you simply "match up the pictures" kinda (only matching words instead of pictures).

    I actually started doing that.
    I also tried that often, im at 15 questions atm.
    Some answers are easy. Like when they ask for the Naakual that has dominion over beasts. And they give 3 options and only Kumhau is written right.
    Some can be checked easily, like how the place in Rala Waterways is named to grow vegetables. But when Rala Waterways were constructed, idk.
    Or "What is the name of the Matriarch Naakual?" "Kumhau, Yumcax, or ...?" Shall i lift Yumcax leafs to see it gender? Stupid.

    I will continue writting down the questions and maybe the answers. My POL crashed, so i couldnt write down 1 long question.
    POL is such a pussy after all this years... . -.-

    Well, I'm assuming there's a wiki page out there that has all the questions and their answers. As for how you were to know about Yumcax, I'm sure some NPC in the game mentions it somewhere, lol. It's kinda like the Level 65 uncap quest, where Maat tells you to go find 4 NPCs to trade Kindred's Seals to... and some of the facts about these NPCs are rather obtuse.

    This page might help you: http://ffxiclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/A...t_for_Eternity

    BTW, according to that, Rala Waterways were constructed 200 years ago.
