[FFXIV] Story Completed
Due to last week’s IRL trip, I delayed finishing up the 3.0 story missions until I got home this week, and while on the one hand I’m glad I waited, on the other, unlocking the end of the story also unlocks 2 more dungeons and the Expert roulette, making it possible to get 360-400 Tomes of Law per day for 3 dungeon runs, which I did on both Saturday and Sunday so now I’ve got my robe, legs, and helm from the set — just gloves and feet to go! Though upgrading them all from 170 to 180 will take a while since it takes 3 days of the daily hunts to get enough seals for 1 item, with a touch left over, unless I want to jump on the hunt train. I’ve already upgraded the robe, but there are still 4 more pieces, so that’s 1200 seals — 11 days (110 seals per day from the hunts, so 11 days is 1210). And of course, the Alexander raid has been released and it enables one to get i190 gear and I’ll be looking into getting into that soon. Some FC members have already cleared all 4 floors that are currently available, and while I feel no need to “catch up” it sounds like the raids are a lot of fun, so… why deny myself the fun of doing them too?
I’m still working on the Summoner with the daily hunts. I can do them all up through the level 59 mobs anymore, so no loss of 2 hunts worth of XP like I was doing from 50-52. I’m within a day of level 54 now, so should get that tonight. Something I’d forgotten when I got to level 52 as a Summoner was that Scholar had leveled up simultaneously, so I went back and did the quest for it to get my level 52 skill for that job also. I’ve also done a little work on my Pugilist, getting it to level 23, and then spent some time with the Astrologian, getting it to 38 and rather close to 39 now. This past weekend I tried a few low-level dungeons as the AST, but without the roulette XP bonus the low-level ones like Satasha and Tam-Tara Deepcroft really don’t give much xp at all for the time spent, and after doing 2 of them where I was the tank becuz the 1st timer Marauder or Paladin couldn’t figure out how to use Overpower or his aggro combo, even with me and a dps telling him how to do it (I got LOTS of commendations for being (and I quote) “the most patient healer in the world”), I packed it in and rode the FATE train in CCH for most of my XP instead. It was actually a lot faster.
So yeah, that’s it for today’s update — story’s done, all dungeons are unlocked, Alexander’s unlocked but not done yet, gear average is level 172 and in less than 11 days will be the maxed out 179 that’s possible to get without doing the extreme primals or Alexander. I’ll see about doing them this week also. Should be fun! Happy gaming out there!
