Ok so on the mini map some NPCs are indicated by a red square with a white chat bubble in it. In game they have a purplish icon with the conversation doods on it.  When I interact with these guys/gals they really dont say much, no quest or conversation options, What do these icons indicate? Thanks.....M

The chat bubble on the minimap means you have spoken with that NPC (a question mark on the minimap means there is an NPC that you haven't met yet). The icon with the dudes talking to each other means that is an NPC that you can gain knowledge on and play a minigame with to gain amity with (you basically befriend the NPC). Knowledge is a pretty huge thing in this game. You need to know some NPCs to speak to others, some NPCs have "hidden" shops and quests that you can't access until you complete that amity mini-game, and more knowledge = more energy. Knowledge is shared across your characters btw, so you won't need to speak with every NPC again to gain knowledge on them on your alts.

 

uum... idk why but that screenshot won't go away. Well anyway, enjoy this sexy screenshot of one of my characters that now wants to be attached to all of my posts!! yay buggy forums...

so red means i have talked to them? I think I am more confused. Most of the ones that show red on the mini map have no options at all, shop, convo, nothing. But they do have the purple convo icon in the world when I go to them.  M
