Side Quests are generally optional extra content that can be done for lore, item rewards, Gil, and experience. Anything still using the plain yellow icon instead of the blue Feature Quests icon typically does not unlock a major feature or contain critical story. They are primarily for worldbuilding and flavor, but can be a key source of HQ crafted gear while leveling, beginning in Heavensward and later.
