Last night, thanks to a combination of scrip turn-ins and finishing up some leves, I finally reached my first level 80 crafter on my main – carpenter. I already have one level 80 crafter on my RP Alt – turns out that alchemist is pretty easy to zoom through with leves this time around. But that’s because it’s highly self-sufficient compared to many of the other crafting jobs I’ve messed with so far. As you can see, I also had to take goldsmith up a few levels to do this well. That’s because the leve I was doing required nuggets, along with thread from weaver, and a ton of wood for each turn in. But this was nothing compared to the leves for goldsmith itself. I might have tried to level it more if it weren’t for the fact that almost every leve recipe required at least one, if not two, gathers from timed nodes. Gold itself, which is a timed node, seems to be required for almost everything, which is a bit crazy. Especially since you really need … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Level 80 Carpenter!

I’ve been trying to keep up with capping my weekly Tomes of Phantasmagoria — you know they’re reaching for names when they come up with something like that. While I’ve been successful the past couple of weeks, it’s not always been an easy thing. I’m not a huge fan of the Expert dungeons this time around (I like the Twinning based on theme alone). They seem to be a bit challenging whenever we have to PUG it. Much of my Tomes were earned from Alliance Roulette, but really come much faster with Expert. I don’t even know if you can actually cap if all you do is Alliance every day (I’d have to do the math). Anyhow, the first gear upgrade I went for was the hardest to get – the chestpiece. It looks like all the gear has this scale mail theme this time around. It doesn’t look bad by any means, but it’s not my favorite set I’ve seen from Shadowbringers so far. But maybe that’s a testament to the wide variety of … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Deepshadow Scale Mail of Casting
Welcome to the new month, and to the very first day of Blaugust! For anyone who doesn’t know already, this is a month that bloggers rally together to support blogging and their fellow bloggers, both new and old. I’ll likely be talking about this throughout the month, but if you’re interested in learning more, click here! Now on to my goals for this month. I think this is going to be another month of rather loose goals and just plodding along making progress. FFXIV Goals – My Main As expected, my main earned Level 70 on Warrior last night! I also finished all the job quests, aside from the final Level 70 one, which I hope to tackle tonight. So her goals are as follows: Level Dark Knight (Daily Beast Tribes)Level CarpenterLevel Trusts (With Bard) Level Fisher Gear up with new Tomes Mostly a lot of leveling going on here. Dark Knight is the next tank I’m going to pull through using daily beast tribe quests in Stormblood. As I see it, it will take about two … [Read more...] about Welcome Blaugust & August Gaming Goals
Naturally, July was all about FFXIV Shadowbringers and making progress in the new expansion. I set very light goals for this month, and am actually surprised at how much I managed to get done, even outside of the goals I set. FFXIV Goals – My Main Complete Shadowbringers MSQ ✓Level Red Mage to 80 ✓Level a gatherer ✓ Not only did I get Red Mage to 80, and finish Shadowbringers, but as of last night, I also finished leveling Miner. This means both Miner and Botanist are at 80, and I’ve been working on white scrip gear for them. I haven’t started Fisher, but that’ll be next. I did make a little progress on my main’s crafting – I chose to start with Carpenter, but haven’t hit max level on that yet. I have, however, been dutiful with daily Beast Tribe quests, which has consistently (if slowly) leveled my Warrior. It’s a little over halfway through 69 at this point, and I have a number of job quests I … [Read more...] about July Gaming Goals in Review
This weekend has been one of making progress in Shadowbringers… my second time through. Friday I focused on getting through the final dungeon of the MSQ. I did this with a Trust, as I’ve been doing all the dungeons, and was quite surprised when after the final boss, the chest dropped the Shoebill minion (pictured above). It was completely unexpected, and has become the minion I keep out and about. This is mostly because it doesn’t give a flying flip. Whenever you zone in or stop moving about, it will stand absolutely still… and it refuses to care to follow you until you get to the absolute max distance away from it, which sends it flying after you. I find this hilarious, especially since if you enter a small house, it will remain at the front door all the time… because no where that you walk within the house is far enough away to trigger it to follow you. Anyhow, I got that dungeon done and finished the final boss trial to complete MSQ for a second time. … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Shadowbringers Complete, Again
