I'm a bit disheartened to see that Gatherers are being sidelined to some extent, however in general the answers were either as expected or what makes sense. Also, whomever said everyone should have combat levelled - were it not for the ability to 'main' Botanist I definitely would have quit this game and that probably wont change unless the Combat Revamp is rock solid and enjoyable. Rank 43 Botanist compared to 27 Lancer here.

At the same time I still think the Main Story should be for everyone, but have events such as Ifrit etc seperate. Example would be you see a group of Garleans and escape - mission ends but you can then get extra story and cutscenes by going back armed with a group, rather than telling craft/gather they are worth less.
