FFXIV: Reaching Goals, Finding Monk!

Posted on February 29

This past week, I spent a lot of time sick and at home. But not idle. In fact, it was a good week for knocking out a lot of short goals that I’d almost completed on Zuri.

I know Zuri doesn’t look too pleased in this picture, but I was happy to finally finish leveling my last gathering class to 60 today!

FFXIV: Patch 3.2 Quality of Life Goodness

Posted on February 24

Syn and I finished the 3.2 Main Scenario quests on Zeb and Tai last night. I was pleased with the amount of story and the quality both, but I will save talking about that for another time.

FFXIV: Magnificent Mentorship… Or Not…

Posted on February 23

One of the first things I did this patch, after checking out the new hairstyles, was unlocking Zuri’s mentorship.

FFXIV: Fearless Gaming, Mentorship Goals, and Understanding Raiders

Posted on February 22

So the title is somewhat misleading as I haven’t actually gotten over all of my grouping anxieties completely. But, lately, I’ve been doing a lot of things I haven’t done in the past in FFXIV. This weekend was one of many accomplishments, both for personal goals and overcoming content with FC members.

New Nintendo Accounts and Preregistration for Miitomo

Posted on February 18

I was never heavily into the whole Club Nintendo when it was around, even though I had a dusty long-forgotten account. Back in June 2015, Club Nintendo shut down, which was before my Wii U purchase and before I became re-invested in Nintendo products again.

FFXIV: Why Are Healers So Grouchy?

Posted on February 16

Disclaimer: I’ve played as a healer quite a bit the past month or so. This isn’t an article about getting down on healers, cuz I know they don’t have an easy job. This is just an observation piece.

FFXIV: Fishing Frenzy and Net Troubles

Posted on February 15

After reading a recent interview from Yoshi-P, where he’s confirmed that battle classes and crafting classes all get the same Mentor status, I decided to change my plans and focus on achieving what I needed to finish the crafting track. I’m far closer to those requirements than I am to 1000 dungeons and 300 commendations.

Wellness: Starting Wii Fit U

Posted on February 13

Back when the original Wii Fit was all the rage, it convinced me to purchase the Wii. It was tough to get your hands on one, so I ended up picking one up second hand.

FINAL FANTASY XIV Patch 3.2 – The Gears of Change Trailer (Hyped)

Posted on February 12

So the trailer just dropped today, and there’s a whole lot of hype building around the 3.2, coming in a few weeks. I have to say just the opening music (Atma Weapon theme!) for the Primal Sephirot was a great way to get me in a nostalgic mood.

FFXIV: Achieving Goals and Void Ark Woes

Posted on February 11

We’ve had a really rough week with Void Ark parties for some reason. I don’t know if people are just starting to get reckless, but it’s certainly been training my white mage skills.

BDO: Name Reservations

Black Desert Online’s name reservations are open. There were some issues with the site in the beginning, but I finally got mine reserved.

7D2D: 34 Days of Progression

Posted on February 9

This past weekend, the zombie hunting troop got the itch to continue our game in 7D2D. This was pretty much the same game that we’ve been playing all of alpha 13, and the first time we’ve made it as far as day 34 in a while.

FFXIV: Tanking, Healing and Everything In Between

Posted on February 8

This weekend I spent a significant amount of time bashing zombies in 7D2D, but I still got a good bit done in FFXIV, too. In fact, I’ve accomplished a number of my goals since I wrote my goal post a week ago.

FFXIV: Of White Mages and Love

Posted on February 5

So the first thing I did as a level 60 White Mage was try to gear up as much as I could to reach the ilvl 175 cap so I could run Void Ark as a healer.

After yesterday’s raid rant, I needed something warm and fuzzy to cheer me up about FFXIV, and that’s exactly what happened last night.

So, Saturday brought us the Letter from the Producer LIVE Part XXVII, information about FFXIV Patch 3.2 – Gears of Change, which is coming Feb 23. Here are my initial impressions of the patch from what we know, or at least, what’s most important to me.

FFXIV: Making the Hard Choice & Setting Goals

Posted on February 1

In March of last year, I wrote about my problem with alts in FFXIV. After the release of Heavensward, I feel like that problem got much, much more difficult for me.
