Does it matter what order i play the story in?
As in will i lose any rewards? get locked out of a particular step? permanently miss a step.. etc?

Playing with a bunch of friends who likes to hip hop around expansion stories.. HoT today PoF tomorrow.. Personal story when he is lonely. etc.
Despite my pleas to just do it in order.

its too late the story is already spoiled

  • In HOT you often need to have the right mastery for story sections. If not, you won't get anywhere.
    I didn't play POF much longer. But I think it doesn't matter there. Just very long because it is connected to hearts and everything.

    But except for spoilers, you won't miss anything. Nothing is really relevant. And at some point you will have played everything anyway, I think.

    You can play in any order for the most part (if you skip to PoF halfway through the personal story, you can still do the PS later for example), but obviously you'll end up confused on the narrative and spoil stuff for yourself

    I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

  • ok thanks for the information.. as i said... the story is already spoiled lol. i just wanna game with my buddies.

    You can't miss or get locked out of anything by doing the story in the wrong order, where there are bits that have to be done in a certain order the game will force you to do that (like how you can't skip parts of the personal story). The worst of it is seeing the story in the wrong order.

    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings"

    For the HoT expansion story, as far as I am able to remember, the only masteries that I needed to finish it were the basic gliding ones, bouncing mushrooms and speed boost mushrooms (for the last couple of boss fights). The rest can make all of HoT (and a couple of maps later in the game) a lot easier to play though.
