February Gaming Goals in Review

Welcome to February in review! I actually completed all of my goals this month, even going beyond what I set for myself in a lot of ways. Let’s take a look:

Steam Personal Challenge 

  • Play at least 2 new games from my Steam Backlog ✓

I did this. In fact, I completed the games I started, too! Granted, they were on the short side, and I picked them because they were. The first I completed was Seasons After Fall, and the second was A Bird Story. I blogged a bit about both of them. 

Pokemon Sun

  • Complete the storyline ✓

It took me until the last weekend of this month to finish this, but I did. I still have things I want to do in Pokemon Sun, but the overall story is complete. 

Final Fantasy XIV 

  • Upgrade Dragoon Gear ✓
  • Upgrade Bard Gear ✓
  • Continue Relic Weapon ✓
  • Finish Summoner Job Quests ✓
  • Level Paladin ✓
  • Meld Crafting Materia
  • Earn at least 1 Crafting Master III Book ✓

A lot is going on here. I am running the weekly Dun Scaith hoping for Bard drops, and upgrading that gear when I do get it. I have about 3 pieces left to get, so drops are harder and harder to come by, thanks to RNG. Whenever I get enough Scripture for an accessory upgrade, I do that as well. 

Each week’s Dun Scaith completion also allows me to upgrade a piece of Dragoon Scripture gear. I’m on track for all of that. 

I have continued to plug away at the Umbrite step of the Relic Weapon, which just got nerfed today. I’m pretty burned out on Relic, and starting to regret the massive amounts of Lore Tomes I’ve thrown at this thing, but I’m going to finish this step, at least. 

I was good and finished all my Summoner Job quests, while cleaning up other quests I’ve discovered along the way. 

I leveled Paladin this month, far beyond what I expected to. I started out at something like level 34, and am currently level 53 and rising. I do want to get this job to 60 eventually, but it’s now kinda in that level 50-60 void that I loathe so much. 

I didn’t meld any crafting materia. In fact, I removed that goal from my list. I sat down to do it, but then decided that I’ve never actually crafted anything that requires the stats that materia give. So, I decided just to save what I’ve gathered and re-access the situation later. 

And, finally, Crafting Master III books. My goal was to obtain at least 1. Instead, I earned them all! Part of this was because I discovered that my Squad could bring back crafting scrips, sometimes in a large number. So, using that, I was able to purchase all the Master III books. Now, I guess I need to look at Master IV stuff, especially with the new Deliveries system added to the game. 

So how did your month go? 


  1. The squad rewards crafting scrips? They actually do something useful? Once I got them all to level 50 I just stopped doing anything with them as there didn’t seem to be any point. I guess I need to look more into what they can do.

    1. That’s exactly what I was thinking until I read someone else talking about it. You have to keep running them until they come back with chemistry that allows them to bring back crafting and gathering scrips. I also have one that brings back GC seals, which can sometimes cover the cost of sending them out.

      I sent my squad out one week on a level 40 mission that had an 100% chemistry and they brought back over 900 blue crafting scrips. On the flip side, I did the same last week and they only brought me back 100-something scrips. So it varies.
