This is a list of all missable content in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition (XC1). Read on to learn which quests, heart-to-hearts, affinity links, and more can be missed.

Types of Missable Quests

Timed Quests

Some quests expire when you reach a certain point in the game, usually a pivotal story moment which renders the location where that quest is inaccessible.

Mutually Exclusive Quests

Mutually Exclusive Quests are quests that have partner alternate quests where both cannot both be completed. You will have to choose which among the two quests you want to complete.

Refugee Camp Missables

These quests are found in the Refugee Camp of the Colony 6 remnants, and expire after beginning the relocation and reconstruction of Colony 6. Complete them all before beginning The Road Home or To Colony 6!.
