When inside outposts, I often see people talk among themselves about various things.

So far when I listened it was about weather, or food, etc.

It's really boring so I didn't bother to listen much.

So, is there a point listening to that chatter? Can I get a side quest from it, or a hint for some good treasure?

Short answer: No.

In FFXV this is equivalent to in past FF titles walking up to NPCs and pressing X to see what they had to say. It's usually just flavor text about the area or recent story events to make the world feel more alive. As far as treasure goes I haven't personally encountered a single case of this, however, in the story progression some NPCs give clues to where to go next.

As a side note it's possible to walk away and back to NPCs to get them to trigger a dialogue sequence, after a short while you will see they just repeat like past games.

  • Thanks, that's what I thought as well. Since this is "only" your personal observation I'll wait for other answers though, either to confirm this or disprove this. Commented Sep 19, 2017 at 19:30
  • @ShadowWizard no worries, granted, if NPC dialogue was involved in some sort of reward there would be information about it out on the internet by now. Commented Sep 19, 2017 at 21:48

There's a window in Lestallum, that - if you have unlocked the flying car after the storyline - allows you to overhear two guys talking. It gives you a quest for the Pitioss Ruins, that's the only quest from ambient dialogue I know of.

    You're extremely hard to understand. Please try to use proper grammar. I have no idea what you want to say, because I would have to try to untangle your sentence just to get what you mean. Commented Feb 16, 2018 at 10:03
