I’ve actually been taking it pretty easy in FFXIV lately. I’ve put more of my time into other games, such as Sims 4, Skyrim, Civ 6 and Animal Crossing. But when I do log in to FFXIV, I’ve been working on achieving my goals for this month.
One goal was to finish leveling Scholar/Summoner to 60. I noted in a previous post that I achieved that over the weekend! Woot! I’ve been leveling this job for so long… I mean, here’s a post from March of 2015 when I first unlocked the job! I started leveling in earnest as Vix and Xaa were leveling their DPS classes and Zeb was working on tanks.
Though I already have a level 60 White Mage, I just feel more comfortable healing as a Scholar. I’m not sure why, as it originally used to be the opposite – I liked the White Mage big heals. I guess having fairy for backup is just comforting when I need to stance dance.
The past couple of nights, I went back and finished up all the Scholar job quests that I’ve ignored down the line (it’s okay, I only ran levelling roulette and PotD, so I haven’t needed the skills). That final Scholar quest was a bit of a pain, but I did get it done!
I’m of two minds when it comes to leveling more jobs in FFXIV. Part of me enjoys and craves that kind of progression much more than I do end game gear grinding. But another part of me is tired from the struggle of climbing job after job, especially between level 50-60. There’s still no “easy” way to do this solo as people don’t take to Heavensward FATES like they do in Dragonhead and North Thanaland. I guess there’s some beast tribe quests, but I use the Vath for my Scrpiture Tomes.
I’m also a bit weary because while I want to level Paladin and Ninja on Zuri, I’ve already done that on my alt, Tai. It’s hard to be motivated to re-level a job, even if that is the reality of the situation. I especially want to get some more tanking experience under my belt on Zuri since it was nice to have a level 60 Paladin that I could pull out in a pinch on Tai.
Here’s where my classes stand right now.
I do have Monk at level 55, but I’m not very motivated to get that job done right now. I need to start using my Leveling Roulettes for Lore Tomes to keep moving with my Dragoon Relic. I’m also avoiding running any dungeons I don’t need to because I’m skirting burn out.
I guess all in all it sounds like I need to take a break with leveling until I can square away my Relic more. But I guess I can check out Dragonhead and see if there are any FATE parties to join for Paladin and Ninja from time to time.
I also have Summoner and Monk job quests to finish! Still too many things to do in this game!
