FFXIV: Ranking with Ishgard Restoration

Though most of my weekend was spent in Animal Crossing, one thing did happen in FFXIV that I wanted to note.

As I’ve posted before, I was pretty active around the Diadem and in leveling my final crafting jobs on my alt, Amon, during the release of the new phase of the Ishgard restoration. I wasn’t there for an actual event, but I sure did my part through leveling and farming Kupo of Fortune. I even leveled another alt from nothing to 50+ on a couple of crafting jobs while the Diadem drops were still dirt cheap to buy off the marketboard.

I was active, but only at night when I was home from work. I also was active across several different characters, though most active on Amon.

That’s why it surprised me when I got a message in the in-game mail…

So one of the things they added to the Restoration this time around was a ranking and leaderboard system. I hardly paid much attention to it, though I could hear by the chatter in the Diadem that some folks had farmed hours and hours to earn a top spot.

I considered what I did pretty casual. Again, I spread it across characters, and there were some nights I didn’t even go out in the Diadem! But still, somehow, I managed to rank in the top 100! Go figure!

The title is a little… interesting… but it was a pleasant surprise overall!
