December 2020 Gaming Goals in Review

I hope you had a great Christmas/holiday/vacation/whathaveyou! I had a week off and it went far too fast. I didn’t get as much gaming (in a wider scope) done as I’d have liked to, and now things are getting a bit complicated with family medical needs this week. I’m doing my best to attend to that and balance back-to-work, but it’s been tiring.

Hopefully I can take a bit of time to rest over the New Year. That being said, here’s a review of my monthly goals a day early because tomorrow I need to sum up my yearly goals for 2020!

Here’s what I’ve got:


  • Finish leveling Warrior to 80 and do job quest
  • Level Gunbreaker via Trusts 
  • Clean up quests in the First (to level tank) 
  • Level BLU when patch drops
  • Cap BLU skills 
  • Work on crafting Relics for Main and Amon 

First of all, I did reach level 80 Warrior on my main and finished up that job quest. That leaves me with just two jobs left to get to 80 – Paladin, which I’m using beast tribes for, and Gunbreaker which I’m trying to level through Trusts.

I did a little bit of leveling with my Trust this past month, but not as much as I’d have liked. It’s really hard to get the motivation up to run those dungeons every day, even though it’s not really very hard. I HAVE to knock this out in January. I would love to have everything leveled to 80 next month and earn that Amaro mount!

I’ve made progress in cleaning up quests in the First! This is easier said than done because just when you think you’ve finished all the quests, another four pop up in a zone! I did finish all of Lakeland and the lower area of Kholusia. Seeing that my Paladin is only level 72 without that great of gear, I’m trying to tackle level-relevant zones. So the first part of Amh Araeng will be the next stop.

I didn’t realize that the BLU expansion wasn’t happening until a further sub patch when I wrote this, so I crossed that off the list since I couldn’t do it. I did, however, get a few more BLU skills capped.

I finished up two crafting relics for Amon, and that’s all I’ve done in that area. I have been trying to meld my crafting gear properly and all that, but I’ve been terrible at keeping up with the relic work. I haven’t done anything on my main yet.

MISC Goals

  • Continue to level Taming in UO
  • Continue playing Steam Games 
  • Play Switch Games 
  • Play 3DS Games
  • Play Xbox Pass Games 

Sadly, I didn’t get back into UO this month. But I’m not giving up on it! I also didn’t get to pick up my 3DS like I wanted to. But I have played some of my Steam games – ended up with a few new ones with the holidays – and I’m making an effort to try out games on the Xbox Pass as well.

Overall, I wish I’d had more time to branch out to other games this month – even with vacation it seemed hard to do. I went to a lot of in-game events in FFXIV for Starlight, and all of that was good fun. So I suppose the trade-off in time was worth it. 🙂

I hope you have a great New Years!
