December 2018 Gaming Goals

Every year, I always say it’s hard to believe it’s December. This year, especially, it’s been quite a ride to get here. 

In terms of my Dad’s recovery, he’s home from the hospital now, but there’s still a lot of recovering for him to do. I’m on call to troubleshoot and take care of things for him, and so my free time is going to be a bit up in the air for a while. Due to that, I’m going to keep most of my goals pretty scaled back. 

I did get through much of what I wanted to do last month, which is awesome. Most of my goals this month will be just to stay on track and finish up what I’ve started. 

FFXIV Goals – Main

  • Level Warrior to 50 
  • Finish Summoner Job Quests 
  • Level Monk  to 70 
  • Start leveling next job to 70 
  • Gear up Crafters (Scrips) 

These are all pretty simple. The major goal is to finish leveling Warrior to 50 to finish up my year-end goal of getting all jobs to 50. This should be a handful of squad runs and done.  

My Monk is level 69, but I’ve not been doing much except beast tribe quests to progress her, so going is slow. I might toss in an alliance roulette to boost that when I get the chance and just get all that leveling completed. 

I’m not sure which job I’m going to level next. My choices are between Samurai and Ninja, though. Those are the only level 60 jobs I actually have left! 

I might go SAM because it shares gear with Monk, and part of doing all this leveling is to clear out space in my inventory. 

Gearing up my crafters through weekly turn-ins is just something that’s going to happen anyhow, so may as well drop it on my list. 

FFXIV Goals – RP Alt

  • Level Armorer to 60 
  • Level Fisher to 60 
  • Level Miner to 70 
  • Level Alchemist to 50
  • Get other crafters to 15

Most of Amon’s goals are just to keep progressing in crafting and gathering. I’m happy that last night I finally hit level 50 on Armorer, which means he’s graduated to Moogle quests for that job. This is good, since I haven’t actually maxed out Moogle rank yet, and I want that dance for him! I should get all that by the time this job hits 60. 

My Miner is in the 60s and working on Namazu quests for leveling. In the meantime, I’m picking up my Alchemist again (which is in the lower 30s) and using my remaining Ixali beast tribe quests to level that to 50. 

That’s a lot of daily beast tribes, trust me! 

I also want to pick up the rest of my crafting jobs and get them to 15. There are a number of crafting jobs I haven’t even unlocked yet, and for the sake of clearing out some old gear, it would be nice to get them on the same page. 

I’m also slowly leveling Fisher towards 60 as well. Once I hit that, Namazu should take it to 70 and clear out some more gear inventory as all level 70 scrip gear is shared. 

And, really, that’s all I’m going to shoot for this month. I think that’s quite enough. I’m getting mentally prepared for Patch 4.5, which is coming in January, just in case that’s when they drop Blue Mage. Then a LOT of goals are going to shift again! 🙂 

What’s on your list this December?
