Any reason to do episodes?

Is there any reason to actually do the episodes? Still on 1 and it seems to take forever, so I was wondering what benefit there is to actually finish it?

There's alot of rewards from doing the story, like star gems, boosters and such. Later in episode 2 and 3 you get to access areas that aren't available outside of the story and you also get a sneak peek at bosses that will be in future urgent quests.

Oh, also, at least as it currently is on the JPN server, two of the Scion Classes require you to view specific Story Events to be able to unlock them.

Episode 2 is actually quite good.

Nie, thanks for explaining

Hunter Echo is the best.
