Local Dialogue

Local Dialogue refers to NPC Dialogue that is indirectly related to your current progression with Main Story Quest and Side Quests, either current or completed, which are listed in your Main Menu/Duty/Journal.

Quest Dialogue refers to NPC Dialogue that is directly related to your Current Main Story Quest and Side Quests, which are listed in your Main Menu/Duty/Journal under Current/Quests Tab, whether they have a quest progression marker or not.

Current Quests are a composite of both Local and Quest Dialogue, each with their own triggers for NPC Dialogue changes. One key difference is Quest Dialogue locks both your character and 1st person camera view center position in place, disabling your ability to move freely and limiting the range of 1st person camera view, whereas Local Dialogue does not have such limitations. 3rd person camera view has no limitations with either Local or Quest Dialogue. Exceptions are Gemstone Vendors and NPCs that contain Question Dialogue in the form of a menu with multiple questions entailing descriptions regarding themselves, the surrounding local, Job specifics, or seasonal events. Such NPCs lock your character just as Quest Dialogue does even though they are indirectly related to quests.

When viewing the Quest Page/Dialogue Tab, by default there are no Quest Dialogue tags since the list is composed of Quest Dialogue, however Local Dialogue tags may appear when a change in Local Dialogue occurs followed by a list of said changes. An example is shown below demonstrating how Local Dialogue and Quest Dialogue are listed on the Quest Page/Dialogue Tab. As a side note, the NPC Page/Dialogue Tab is composed entirely of Local Dialogue, however, caution should be taken since such Dialogue may contain spoilers.
