These past few weeks I’ve been writing about what happening in my corner of the world in FFXIV and in the tradition of the old Lotro Wednesday I used to make I’ll try to make this a recurring thing. Quite a few things happened since last Monday so let’s get to it with first, the bucket list.
- Black mage to 50: I made some progress this week! One whole level which brings my Black mage to 31. I need to set time aside for this.
- Coils of Bahamut: No progress this week as I was mostly focused on my zodiac weapon and farming World of Darkness.
- Extreme primals: Ramuh is down!!!! That took a while but I finally managed to get a group that knew how not to fall apart. Ramuh is a pretty technical fight and gear won’t help you if it’s not well executed which explains in part why it took me a while to find the right group. Now only Shiva EX remains and I’m hoping that since she’s current content it will be a bit easier to find groups.
- Zodiac weapon chain: I’m now done with the Atma step!!! I spent a lot of time last week grinding out the last three books and now I’m on the Animus step since yesterday. I had enough Soldiery tomes to jump ahead to the melding step and I did manage to get one meld done. Only 74 more to go.
Gear wise I’m also coming to the end of my catchup. I need to replace my pants and that will be done through Poetics tomes. I don’t feel like farming WoD for a single drop and besides, since I’ll now be running Ex roulette daily I should have the required tomes in a week. I’ll also have full augmented accessories this week once I complete the weekly quest for Carbontwine. The only real piece missing will then be getting my weapon to iLvl 110 and that will be done once I complete the Animus step of the Zodiac weapon. Long story short, I’m nearly done with gear catchup.
This week I’d like to get one or two levels done on the black mage at least and I figure a lot of time will be spent on hunting Alexandrite so I can do melds for my weapon. Still, I’ll try to give Shiva a look but with the Gold Saucer coming out Tuesday, I don’t know where I’ll find the time to do everything.
