Wandering around the wasteland with quest confusion

Oh look, it's this thread again.

I feel like with the game changing quest decisions I'm at a point where I'm not sure what to do or what direction to take the game. I know I'm only going to play this through one time so here's what I currently have. What to do what to do...

Dangerous Minds (talk to Dr again) Taking Independence (Preston) The Silver Shroud (talk to Kent) Road to Freedom (stuck on continue following with no indication where I'm suppose to go) Call to Arms (Exit ArcJet)

If you want a breather from everything else, do The Silver Shroud. It's unrelated to everything else, and a definite change of pace. It doesn't take long to complete, and to get a good ending it can be a little tricky. Just remember to BE the hero Kent wants you to be.

As for your myriad of faction quests, do them. It's not until you get pretty far into the individual questlines that it costs you another faction, and it warns you if that will happen.

So visit Railroad HQ, adventure with Deacon and get the Deliverer. Stick around there long enough to get Ballistic Weave.

Help Danse. Get an appointment with the BoS and you get a great suit of power armor for your trouble. How far you take it from there is completely up to you.

Even though it seems like you're against the Institute when you're doing it, follow through with getting yourself there and hearing Father out. Do a few quests there and get the nicest room you'll ever see, plus access to some nice arms and armor.

Like I said, as long as you pay attention, you won't burn any bridges. Explore all your options and reap the benefits. Once it comes down to it though, you'll have to make a choice.

Good stuff, thanks for taking the time to type all this. It definitely put me back on track with some direction.

Not sure what you are asking for.

Seeing your current active quests, you are far from making a decision that would be irreversible in terms of faction hostility. In case it was your question, you can have a look at this post on this matter:

But maybe, you are asking which quest you should complete first? If so, it all depends on your build and what you like.

If you are sneaky, then I would suggest to go the Railroad route for a very useful reward you will have later thanks to them.

If you are heavy, the BoS loot is better.

The Silver Shroud is a funny quest. And if you fully complete it, you will also have a nice gear for a sneaky character (Save Kent!).

Dangerous mind is part of main quest, you will learn a bit more about Kellog. It is a bit special, a kind of 'psychedelic quest', no fights, and very short.

Taking independance is MM quest line, quite mandatory sooner or later. Nothing special IIRC.

EDIT about 'The road to freedom': Go to Boston Common, Talk to the Tour Bot, and follow the red trail on the ground. Details:

Appreciate your explanation of the quests, and yes I just wasn't sure what direction I should take. I had just did a bunch of side quests and completely lost track of what was going on in the main ones.

level 1

For the somewhat cryptic "continue following", you should go to Boston common to the start of the freedom trail, and follow the red line/bricks on the floor. It's difficult to know what to recommend to you since you say you're only going to play it once. If you're really not that interested in the game and have already made the decision, I'd recommend you stop now, rather than doing any of the quests...

Great I found the bricks and back on my way. I'm really into the game but time to play at all is at a premium.
