September 2020 Gaming Goals in Review

This has been a pretty busy month in terms of FFXIV gaming. Not only did I achieve most of my goals, but I went above and beyond in several areas outside of my goals.

For example, I took Tad through the entire Shadowbringers expansion MSQ from the very start to the end of 5.3 in about a week. I also spent a day gathering and crafting the Neo-Ishgarding gear set for him so that he’d be of a relevant ilvl up through this patch. All of this was completely unplanned… that’s my 4th character through Shadowbringers.

Aside from that, I also spent a good deal of time gathering in the Diadem and crafting for this season of the Ishgard Restoration. Not only did I earn the title for my main that I was after, but I also picked up just about every item from the Restoration scrips that I was interested in.

And even beyond that, I completed collecting the glamour/gear set that I wanted on my RP alt. I do have one more set I’d like to get, but the major one is finished!

So… when it comes to my goals for last month, here’s how it looks:

  • Finish leveling Dragoon to 80 and do job quest 
  • Start leveling Ninja 
  • Finish Patch 5.3 content on Main 
  • Do Trusts on Tank (?)
  • Finish leveling Ben to 70 and do job quests 
  • Zuri – Progress through Stormblood 
  • Decorate some FC rooms 

Really, the only thing I didn’t do was Trusts on my Tank. But I threw that in there at the last moment (as indicated by the ?), and wasn’t really pushing to work on that.

My Dragoon is now completely leveled with job quest done. My Ninja is sitting at almost level 77, so I’ll be finishing that soon and starting on my last jobs – the tanks.

I did spend a bunch of time decorating FC room and even got my own personal house decorated and themed. I was very happy about that!

I’d somewhat pushed progress for Zuri back once again this month, especially due to all of the heavy leveling I did with Tad to get him through Shadowbringers. But I’m happy to report that Zuri has completed the Steppes, and is sitting outside of the Doma Castle run (which I hope to finish tonight).

She’s also level 69, which makes her far beyond what she needs to be level-wise at this point in Stormblood. I’m going to continue to focus on her progress next month and would love to see her get to Shadowbringers, finally, too!
