Only requirement is to make sure your gear score is 250+ by the time you hit 50. Everything you get beyond that is replaced instantly when you finish the Vern quest and get 302 from doing the Chaos dungeons

Some side quests give good xp, gold, resources, upgrade materials etc. They stay relevant.

Right, but like some of us said above... you can always go back to them and should actually. There's just 0 need to do them before you get to 50 if you're looking to speed up the process to get to the end game.

I suppose I can always come back later and do the side quests for kindness points or whatever, but does that stuff even matter once you’re past leveling?

Sure does. There are a lot of NPCs that you need a minimum amount of kindness/charisma/whatever to increase their rapport. These give you things like skill points (to improve how powerful your spells are), collection items, and a variety of other items.

When I leveled (and I'm not sure why people are so in a hurry to get to the top, the leveling experience for me was great and I enjoyed exploring all of the areas), I did the main questline as well as side quests that came up. With that being said, there's no right or wrong way to level. Just have fun!

Here here

Since you have to join a guild for one of the quests, if someone on Regulus needs a guild feel free to use City Watch, just ping me in DMs a heads up. I'm not doing much in it at the moment, FYI, as I'm just a filthy casual but I didn't want to join a random guild. (though at this point I'm 80 hours in and still booting it up daily so maybe not so casual...)

I'm still doing every quest that I come across so I don't miss any character building stuff, but after 47 hours of playing I just can't bring myself to read the sidequest text anymore.

I think the main issue is that none of the sidequests really have any weight, and there are so many of them that they all blur together. I read every bit of text and listened to every voiceover up until I reached Luterra, and while I have a good understanding of the main story, there's not a single sidequest that stuck with me. I realize that this is not a game designed with western sensibilities in mind, so I'm ok with that, I just kinda wish they had gone with more quality vs quantity in that area.

Still definitely enjoying the game though!

Likewise, I have a guild on Mari called Lost Cascadia if anyone’s looking. It was originally intended to be a local guild for some friends but everyone I know is playing either Horizon or Elden Ring so I made it public.

Is there any type of "gear transfer" for jewelry that I can use to upgrade the quality of some of my jewelry items, or are you just stuck with the quality it drops at?

As far as I can tell, it's fixed. No upgrades, only replacements. You can buy additional pieces from the Chaos dungeon vendor, but they're random rolls too.

Bummer, I’ve got some very low quality jewelry that I just can’t give up due to some awesome engraving bonuses. Oh well!

Bots, what bots?
