So, September’s mid-month gaming goals were mostly a bust. This was because I couldn’t have foreseen how involved I’d get with the new GW2 expansion or Secret World Legends. As a matter of fact, I even had some luck encouraging Syn and Amoon to log back into their long-lost GW2 accounts last night. We dusted off our old characters and even gave our long-defunct guild a bit of a boost.
This month is going to be iffy for goals, too, since FFXIV Patch 4.1 drops next Tuesday, and I know it’s going to be a doozy. Because of that, I’m trying really hard to make some progress in Path of Fire, hoping to finish up the story line and maybe get some work on my griffon mount underway. It’s been very slow going for me so far, so we’ll see how it turns out!

I’m not sure if playing so many different games right now (not listed above: SWL) is a good idea, but I’ve been having a lot of fun with a bit of variety. GW2 allows for more quick-paced jump-in-get-something-done play, which I can appreciate. FFXIV takes a little more time investment, and I know after 4.1, it will have my attention again. SWL is something our group does when we want to be involved in a story line and have a few hours to put towards it.
In other words, I’m so happy October is here! This is one of my favorite times of the year — I love the feel of oncoming Fall and Halloween! I have a lot of other personal goals I’m sorting through outside of gaming, and I’m looking forward to this month!
