I haven’t been writing a lot about FFXIV lately because I’ve pretty much been doing the same thing when I log in every day: running Experts for Tomes to gear my Dragoon. Last night, I got the final visual piece of the set (sans head), so there it is!
I only have the head and belt left to complete the Scripture gear, and will be so, so relieved once it’s done. I’m not a huge fan of the way the set looks, so I might find the motivation to glamour it.
I’m still plinking away at upgrading my Relic weapon at what feels like a glacial pace. Part of that is because I don’t go out of my way to run dungeons when I don’t have to, so securing Lore is a slow prospect for me. Part of it is that I’m earning my Sands through fishing, which is an RNG fest sometimes, and it’s difficult to find the time to actually sit down and fish most days. So, I’m sitting on about 5 Umbrite with no Sands.
Last night, I did manage to fish up 2 Sands worth and make a tiny sliver of progress… but seeing I really wish I could be using the Lore to gear up other jobs, it’s so painful to watch it sucked into this one weapon instead. I could have my healer and summoner geared by now if it wasn’t for Relic.
So, that’s more or less where I am in FFXIV. Slowly making progress and more or less in a holding pattern.
