I'm nearing the end-game, at the fourth attempt with the Holy Pillar, I think?
I was under the impression that the sidequests (blue markers) in each Holy Pillar iteration were the same thing (I beat the Merchant guy like three times), so I promptly ignored most of them and simply rushed into the temples.
In this iteration, which begins with Chapter 7, I visited Yulyana for the heck of it. Turns out that I can fight him for his Conjurer asterisk. Then I visited Eternia, and I found Einheria, Khint and Holly there.
So, to my horror, things in this iteration are different from the first world. Were the events in the second, third, etc iterations also different from the first world? In short, my question is:
SHOULD I have done ALL blue markers in ALL iterations to have a 100% game experience?
