Don't know if anyone else is playing but I'm making a topic for possible discussion and posting some tips that I don't recall being explained in the game!
Gestures are bound to the d-pad, you can change them in options. By default holding Down will make you sit which will recover your stamina a bit faster.
Hold X to skip through dialogue automatically.
Press X when talking to your pets to invite them to your party.
Luck also increases the drop rate of rare items and your chance to craft higher quality crap.
You can use any skill you have while you're any other Life, although you can't use Life specific abilities while you aren't that life. Gatherers also get an extra drop from nodes when you actually play on that life.
You can craft out of storage, so just deposit your crafting crap.
There is unfortunately some day one DLC in the form of an expansion as well for 9 dollars. While the original Japanese game and its sequel were rolled into the game we get, the expansion was unfortunately not.
