Happy Halloween! October Goals in Review


I hope everyone has a great Halloween!

I decided to consolidate my Halloween thread into my goals in review this time around. Hope you don’t mind. So here’s how it went this month!

Pokemon X

  • Earn the next gym badge(s) ✓

Not only did I make my goal, but I went on to complete the game this month. Part of that was due to getting hit by Hurricane Matthew, and losing power for a couple days. The 3DS battery life is pretty good considering.

FFXIV End Game Stuff

  • Gear up Dragoon ✓
  • Work on Dragoon Relic ✓
  • Gear up my Healers ✓
  • Earn Blue Scrip Botanist Offhand
  • Buy 1 Fokelore Book
  • Earn money to gear up Crafters ✓
  • Level Scholar (not priority) ✓

I had a number of wins and losses here. Just as suddenly as I had the inspiration to work on crafting and gathering in FFXIV, I lost it. So, I didn’t get any of the gathering goals done.

However, gearing up my Dragoon has been going well. With the exception of the week I went to Fan Fest, I’ve been consistently capping Scripture Tomes. Gearing up my Healers has been going more slowly because I’m having to use my Lore Tomes to buy Umbrite for my Relic. So I’ve only been able to snag dungeon drops for Healers.

I’m kinda pausing on Relic a bit because I know patch 3.45 is bringing the next step to the questline. I wasn’t sure if we’d see nerfs to the previous step or not, so I’ve been holding off until tomorrow before I move forward with it. 

I’m still nowhere near being done with this stage of relic, and the next stage is going to determine whether I see it through or not. I may just snag an upgraded PotD weapon if that’s not too hard to get. 

I am making progress on my Scholar as well, having reached level 59 this weekend. I feel like I’ve been leveling it forever, though, and I’ll be so happy to get it done. Next month’s goal, I guess. 

FFXIV General

  • Gain reputation with Sahagin
  • Clean up old quests (Job Quests)

Hah. Fail. 

I’ve been so lazy on my Job quests… I haven’t earned a single level 50+ skill for Scholar or Summoner still. But playing my Scholar at level 60 in PotD has inspired me to get those soon. I really do enjoy the playstyle! 

I’ve hardly touched beast tribe quests this month aside from the Vath for Scripture Tomes. I guess there’s always next month. 

Did you have goals this month? How did it go?

  1. Now that you’re 59 on the scholar, 3 run of the Great Gubal Library will finish the run to 60. Except I know you don’t like to run dungeons, so… maybe not really an option after all/


    1. Yeah, I’m taking the slow but steady way, I guess. Running her through Palace of the Dead and some Leveling Roulette when I get my group together. I’m not in a rush, but I’ll be happy when it’s done.


      1. If I were perfectly frank, “Pathfinder” and “Lots of PbP RPG’s” would also show up on there…

        As would “Be Player 2 for my mom in Tales of Zestiria”. 😀
