Hot on the heels of Part Two of the Returnee Support Campaign is Part Three, split into two halves for your adventuring pleasure!
Each half contains three separate items on the menu, with the first half focused on casual play and the second half centering on overcoming difficult trials.

Are you aware of the Records of Eminence system? If not, diving right into it should be your first step forward!
In Records of Eminence, players can set a variety of objectives—from vanquishing certain monsters and participating in various types of battle content—complete them for a special currency known as sparks of eminence, and trade the sparks in for item level 117 equipment. To get started, select “Basics” from the Tutorial section, set the objective “Call Forth an Alter Ego,” and follow the instructions laid out before you!

To those who haven’t yet reached item level 119:
A currency known as "bayld" is available for contributing to pioneering activities in Seekers of Adoulin areas. Bayld can be exchanged for all manner of item level 119 equipment, so you can continue on with your character’s progress as you learn more about the story of the Scared City.
Pioneering activities run the gambit from participating in battle content such as Colonization and Lair Reives or by performing more solo-friendly, exploratory coalition assignments.
