    Question about paintings ...

    Hello there,
    I have a small question about how to get paintings. I know you buy them from the artist in Ydilshire, but every time I go check he only offers paintings from ARR areas.

    I got several of Heanvensward area locations, and a fex from Stormblood areas, and I'm sure I have at least 2 spots that exists as paintings, thought the artist won't offer it when I check...

    Did I miss something ???

    You need to complete the sight seeing logs for ARR to unlock all ARR paintings, the one for HW for the HW ones and the SB log for the SB-paintings.

    Hes offering a few odd ones that arent related to the sight seeing log though - for SB I'm not sure if you really need all of them, including Kugane tower and the one on the lamppost... if thats the case though... good luck!

    You do need every single sightseeing log (within an achievement), I'm pretty sure there's 2 sets for ARR, HW, and SB each, and each one unlocks a different set of paintings for the area (i.e. the first SB achievement unlocks ~1/2 of the SB paintings, etc). I had all of SB except the Tower before they added the new ones and I couldn't get any.

    As other people already stated, you need to complete the sightseeing log (or at least the achievement).

    Been slowly plucking away at the ARR ones the last couple days, and it's been going pretty smoothly, all things considered. Half the time I just struggle with getting onto certain vistas before the time runs out (one of the ones in North Shroud was just so frustrating).

    If you can't do the jump puzzle in Shirogane, you won't be able to unlock any paintings from Stormblood. Which is why I don't even bother with the sightseeing log.

    If you wanted to do the ARR sightseeing logs you should use this site. It's extremely helpful since it keeps track of the weather for you. You can also separate it into 1-20 (the set you have to complete to unlock 21-80) or 21-80. You can also check off all your completed logs and have it show you what you still need completed. I usually prefer not to use the currently open option since many of the jumping ones are difficult, I like to try to see when they're coming up and give myself time to complete them then just wait for the window to open.

    Stormblood paintings, I know at least, unlock in batches. So the initial Stormblood sightseeing log unlocks the bulk of the paintings, but the log was expanded in a patch since the expansion, and it will take registering those in order to unlock all the paintings from that batch. So you do have to get to the top of the Kugane tower to unlock the first batch, but do not have to get the one on the lamppost, that is only required for the second batch of Stormblood paintings.
