October Gaming Goals in Review

Happy Halloween everyone!

It’s that time again… when I look back on the goals I made at the beginning of the month and see how well I did. Overall, I’m pretty pleased, especially since I had a lot of things pulling my attention away from my goals.

FFXIV Goals

Aywren (Main)

  • Level Bard (to at least to 65… I’m so behind) ✓
  • Level Crafters ✓

Last night, my Bard hit level 70 (pictured above)! That was an unexpected happenstance… mostly due to running the new Alliance Roulette which has really, really sped up the rate at which I can level a job in the 50-70 range. I’ve also been pretty dilligent about doing Beast Tribe dailies… I guess another job is going to have to pick that up next month!

I did level my Carpenter from 60 to 66 all in the space of one night. Mostly to help with building the FC’s Shirogane Walls. I haven’t really concentrated on leveling since then, but I really do need to get on the ball with my crafters.

Tai

  • Get Whisper Mount and Yo-Kai minions ✓
  • Unlock Flying in Ruby Sea

Not much to say about Tai. I got him his Yo-Kai minions, ran him through the Halloween event, but didn’t really level him or get much further in the MSQ. I’ll have to try again next time.

Zemi

  • Level to 50 and switch jobs to Samurai✓
  • Finish 2.0 base MSQ✓

I spent a lot of time and focus on Zemi this month. I’d forgotten how annoying the upper 40s were since the MSQ just drops you without a warning many times in the process. I was stuck at level 48 for a week or so, until Syn and Amoon ran a Leveling Roulette with me.

Last night, with a combination of MSQ, Leves, and one well-placed challenge log completion, I finally got Zemi to level 50 Ninja. I immediately skipped out and unlocked Samurai for him.

Syn and Amoon were nice enough to unsync a Castrum for me — we blew through it 3 man. While I haven’t finished Praetorium just yet, it’s the only thing blocking me from calling the MSQ a done deal. They might unsync run it tonight for me, so I went ahead and checked that goal off as done.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with Zemi in the future — maybe just unlock Alliance Roulette up to World of Darkness to level him further. That seems to be the way to go. He’s had a long, rocky history as a poor alt of mine, though. I’m glad he’s finally found his job.

GW2 Goals

Zznaf

  • Finish Path of Fire story line ✓
  • Start working on griffon mount ✓
  • Save for griffon mount ✓

Yep, I’ve done all these things in GW2, on top of working through PoF a second time with another character. We’ve also started rebuilding our old GW2 guild, and have recruited a few new friends there!

I already have a lot of things in mind for November’s goals. I might add a few Switch and Steam goals next month, as well.

Did you set any goals this month? If so, how’d you do?

  1. My goals don’t tend to be tied to time (as I never end up meeting them) but rather in terms of just achieving them.

    So for me, I got my Shirogane little plot of land. It is still pretty much empty though and likely to stay that for a while as I am cheap and will try to craft everything myself. At least it allowed me to get some inventory space back as I can store my furniture there.

    I got my Red Mage to level 60, might even get him to 70 tonight (he is level 69 and at about 50% XP). Astrologian is also sitting at level 50 except for the Jewelry got all his Augmented Ironworks gear. So that will be the next to level to 70.

    Crafting is still going slowly but I did have been slacking with the Ixal quests. I did get 3 crafting Jobs to 50 though which does make some of the hardest Ixal quests doable at least. I should be getting Leatherworker with another round of Ixal quests too.

    So, overall I got a few goals out of my bucket list and might need to think about what next I will want to do soon. 🙂

    1. I’m lazy! I need goals or I would just wander around and do nothing all the time. Or try to work on too many things at once. It’s really a guide to help me pick something to focus on.

      I almost didn’t make it to Samurai on my alt this month, but I buckled down last night and got it done because I knew I’d be blogging about it today! 😀

        1. It does help, but I’m also gentle on myself if I don’t complete my goals! Just try again next time. Gaming should be fun, and goals are just there to keep me from getting overwhelmed by the massive amount of options all the different games I play offer.

          There’s just too much to do! 🙂
