I am on Warrior's Reckoning now, and I have not been able to...
Recruit Dr. Yu
Recruit the Mercenaries
Activate Xasta Grasslands on the map
I have had trouble achieving these things before, but I always assumed it was because I handed in certain items too early that I had accumulated from a previous game. But this is a completely fresh game that I started from scratch (not a new game+) so I still don't get why I haven't got Xasta Grasslands on my map yet.
I have not completed any X and co. quests either.
I have checked my quest history at the quest guild, and the Medicinal roots quest from Yu is not listed. I have no reports to give. I have been to Obel with 3 savage sprout roots that I got from Terana plains, and Yu is not in the gossip section.
The only quests left that I can accept are x and co. quests, Fungi's request for a horned behemoth tail (which I can't get because Xasta Grasslands is not available) and Kevin and Pam's quests for the elemental dragon meats.
It's probably something really obvious that I've overlooked but I can't fricking figure it out.
