Hah, made you look!
There’s no way that Sindri Lux weapon pictured above is mine as I’m still stuck in perpetual Umbrite purgatory. It does, however, belong to Syn’s character Zeb, and she’s worked crazy hard to finish it.
So in congrats to her, I snapped screens and wanted to put that first and foremost in this post!
This week, I haven’t been doing much of anything noteworthy in FFXIV, though I am putting time into it alongside of Zelda. I was lazy the last few weeks and finally just picked up leveling my Paladin again, mostly using Beast Tribes and Clan Hunts. She should reach level 55 tonight. There are faster ways to do this, I know, but I just feel like taking it easy.
I’ve also started using PotD to begin making progress on my baby Black Mage. She’s only level 32 (up from the level 30 she’s been at for over half a year). I figure that since Red Mage will share gear with Black Mage, having them somewhat on equal ground will help gear sharing. My Summoner is already up there at 60.
Other than that, I’ve just done my weekly Dun Scaith runs, upgrading things here and there. Slowly making my way through the Umbrite stage of Relic, still, with no end in sight. I’ve actually put more interest and time into crafting and gathering now, since the new Deliveries help take the edge off of Scrip gathering.
Zelda has been a much-needed rest from FFXIV the past couple weeks. I’ve found it has significantly increased my fun to alternate between something deep, quiet and immersive like Zelda with the more hectic pace that FFXIV sometimes has. It’s helped me put the brakes on and find enjoyment in things like crafting and gathering again.
I have several small goals in mind I’d like to reach before Stormblood, most of them casually leveling alt-jobs. Nothing pressing or blog-worthy, really, but still plenty to do.
