Last night, with a combination of Beast Tribes and a few level 69 quests, I was finally able to hit level 70 on my Monk! Note that she’s still using the fist drops from Palace of the Dead. No, those are not glamours. That just shows you how dedicated I was to that job. Sorry Monk… I just could never get into that play style. This means that one of my monthly goals is checked off, and I can move on to leveling another job. I’m really thinking it’s going to be SAM since it shares gear with Monk. I only have two level 60 jobs left to pick from, though – SAM and NIN. I’ve been knocking out a squad run with my Warrior every night, slowly inching towards level 50 on the job. Once that’s done, that will bring all of my jobs to at least 50, which was my goal for the end of the year. After that, I’m going to try and see how squads work in the 50-60 level dungeons. This will be completely new ground to me, but seeing that I … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Monk Level 70!

It’s been a pretty tough weekend on my end, mostly because I’ve been dealing with a family medical emergency that’s had me up at the ER and hospital most of yesterday. Things are stable, but I know that I’m going to be in and out of hospital visitation most this week. So my blogging will probably be in shorter form this week, I apologize. Before all of that, though, I actually manage to knock out a few of my goals in FFXIV on Saturday. First, I FINALLY finished the Ninja job quests up to level 60! My ninja has been 60 for a while, and because I didn’t want to be a bad party member without all of my level 50-60 skills running Alliance roulette, I had to put any further leveling on hold until the job quests were done. I finished them up and got the spiffy armor set pictured above. Second, I FINALLY finished leveling Dark Knight to 50. This is part of one of my major year-end goals (to get all jobs to 50), and leaves only Warrior to complete. It’s taken … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Goal Checkpoints
I had a few major goals I wanted to reach with Amon in terms of getting him where he needs to be for his RP story. There were only two jobs I wanted to level with him — Bard as his main and Red Mage on the side. Syn also had a goal to get Scylla through up to at least the 4.0 story line. These were goals that we both met over the weekend. Pictured above are Amon and Scylla after the (surprisingly smooth) Shinryu clear. When I went through this with Amon, not only did we have a 20 min wait (even with a healer in the queue), but we had a number of first timers that came in blind. This resulted in a couple of wipes, though we did eventually make it through — I don’t think anyone wanted to drop that and get hung back up in the queue. So, I was somewhat dreading going into this fight again, but we rolled right on over it and got it done. Now, Scylla’s already up to Lighthouse and working on gearing up. Syn’s a lot more enthusiastic about end game gearing and … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Alt Progression
I know that last month, I marked the goal of reaching Level 70 Dragoon as complete. This was because I thought that with just a few days of dedication to it, I’d have it leveled. This part was true. Only, I haven’t had the motivation to actually put that time towards it until this week. So, finally, last night, I completed that goal and am now looking at what job to move on to next. As you can see, I’m still struggling to do anything with my Astro and two lagging tanks. Despite the help of the Squad dungeon runs, I’ve been doing too much else between all my characters to focus on this. Maybe I’ll put that up front for next month’s goals. As for leveling my next 70, it will either be Sam or Monk. This is because I still haven’t finished Ninja job quests up to 60 yet, and I don’t want to roll into a level 60 Alliance Roulette without all of my skills. This has been another thing that’s been on my goals list to fix for months. *sigh* … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Dragoon Level 70 & Doman Developments
Yesterday, I reached another goal for this month — to level my White Mage to 70. This one I was glad to get done with since healing is often stressful for me, even in Alliance Roulettes. I haven’t been doing Alliance lately since Syn hasn’t been around, and I don’t like running it on my own (especially as a healer). But I was already level 69 at the beginning of this week, and a few days of Beast Tribe quests got it done. I’m not real sure what I’m going to work on next… or if I’ll just take a little break on my battle classes. I’m still leveling my Alchemist through Namazu quests every day, and I don’t see the crafting portion of beast tribes going away any time soon for me. I’m actually doing pretty well on getting all of my jobs leveled at this point: Especially if you consider that this was where I was when I started this year: I still have an overall goal to get all of those lower jobs to 50 before the year is done. … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Level 70 White Mage! …And Leveling Progress.
