May Goals in Review


The end of May is almost here, and it’s time to look back on my goals for this month to see what I’ve done. Overall, I’m very pleased by my progress, both in MMOs and the single player games I picked up this month. I’ve done a significant amount of single player gaming, which has been a very nice break and much-needed exploration for me.

On to the goals:

Earthbound Wii U

  • Play some!  ✓

I made some progress here. Want to make some more. Will probably list this as a June goal.

Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds

  • Beat the Desert Palace.✓
  • Make progress in this game! (I BEAT IT!) ✓

Not only did I beat that pesky Desert Palace boss, but I went on to complete the game! This is the first console game I’ve finished in what feels like ages.

The Secret World

  • Reroll an alt character ✓
  • Putz around Kingsmouth on them and see what’s changed in the new player experience

I did reroll an alt character that I liked, but didn’t get to play around in Kingsmouth much. I didn’t have the itch,and didn’t want to force it.

Final Fantasy XI

  • Level Dark Knight to 30 ✓

I did level Dark Knight to 30 in FFXI. However, despite the fact I’ve had fun with this game, and still have a whole story before me, I’m going to let my sub lapse next month.

Patch 3.3 is coming out for FFXIV in June, and I know most of my MMO time is going to be taken up by that. I also feel like my curiosity and nostalgia have been sated for now. However, I know that when I get the itch to come back, I have a character that’s sitting at a pretty good place. I’m certainly not uninstalling the game.

Final Fantasy XIV

While I didn’t have any high level goals for FFXIV, I still managed to get Zuri’s dragoon to level 59, just by helping out with leveling roulettes. Almost to 60, so that’s going to get done. 

I also finished gearing up Zuri’s Bard so that she could meet the ilvl 205 requirement for the next patch. 


  • Level Alchemist to 60 (Currently 56)
  • Level Blacksmith to 53 ✓
  • Unlock Master II book for:
    • Alchemist
  • Earn Master III books for (not priority):
    • Alchemist
    • Culinarian

I didn’t do much crafting at all. I did complete the level 53 Blacksmith, but I’ve been out of the zone for crafting this month. 

But this is a good thing!!! Next month’s patch 3.3 will be releasing Moogle Beast Tribe quests that are aimed at crafters level 50-60. After having grinded way too many crafting classes to 60 already, it’s a blessing that we’ll get an alternate way to progress. I’m happy that I have a few classes that can benefit from this, because I’m looking forward to the new quests. I’m more than content to be patient to finish my last three classes if I have more structure than just grinding leves. 

Leveling Stuff

  • Level Machinist to 50 (Priority!) ✓
  • Level Warrior to 25 ✓
  • Level Paladin to 20 ✓
  • Level Ninja to 20✓
  • Clean up old quests ✓

Wow, I really got a lot done this month. Granted, some of it was lower level stuff, but these were goals I haven’t been able to finish despite being on my list for a few months. I worked on cleaning up as many low level and class quests as I could, but I still have a few more hanging out there. If I could get these classes to 30 (and Warrior is pretty close), I’d be able to really start working on FATE runs and such. 

I actually also started making progress on Zuri’s Anima weapon again, and cleaned up a lot of dungeons. I only have 4 dungeons to finish to actually complete Anima stage 2, so I have a feeling I’ll be putting that back on the list for next month!

Overall, good month!

    1. Oh, not at all. Patch 3.3 is releasing next week. I’m just getting started for the summer. 🙂

      But I know what you mean. There tends to be a summer slump for just about everything. That’s why I’m a little surprised that our FC is as active as it is right now.


      1. Yeah I need to juggle some finances before I can get back in – plus, I’d need to be in game at about 10am in order to catch you lot on in the evenings!
