Long weekend, busy weeks, so you get a Tuesday posting. I’ve been struggling a bit in my resolution to blog more lately but at least it’s for good reasons and not just plain laziness so I got that going I guess.
Since it’s been a while since I’ve done this I suppose it’s time to do the rounds of my pre-expansion goals.
- Extreme primals: Done! Been so for a while but still feels good to say so.
- Coils of Bahamut: No real progress for a while now. Done some T9 practice but I still need to complete 7 and 8. Truth is that I’m always feeling pulled by other things and since these demand a fair bit of commitment I’ve been putting them off.
- Black mage to 50: Done! Sorta… kinda… Well my black mage hit 50 during the weekend but I’d still like to finish it proper and that involves doing the first step of the relic quest and ideally getting quelling strikes. This would mean leveling Bard to 36 and Pugilist to 15 in order to get bard… didn’t like getting archer to 15 so not especially enthused about it.
- Zodiac weapon chain: With black mage to 50 I started back on the grind. The pause did me good and I’m now attacking the dungeons drops with energy. I got 4 out of 16 drops so far so not a bad start and I got Aurum Vale and Dezmal out of the way so that’s a relief. I got all the crafting items and the only real other thing missing is around 2800 tomes of soldiery. Still a way to go but feels like the worst is behind.
So it’s no big secret now but I’m still going to break my rule about online presence and admit I joined up with the crew of Greysky armada thanks to the world famous Belghast. It’s a fun crew that has very diverse roster with veterans, new players, people in every time zone and a real love of helping one another.
I’ve been doing my best to get in the mood of things and help out when I can while balancing making progress on my own stuff and so far I think it’s been going well. It’s just fun to run stuff with new players and see how they react to all the awesome stuff. Makes old stuff seems new even to someone like me who might have run Wanderer palace over a hundred times. I’ve also started to get the ball rolling on a hard mode static so I’m curious to see how that will go.
