[FFXIV] Apathy for Esoterics
Ever since Esoterics were introduced, I’ve capped them out religiously. Until 3.1 dropped a couple of weeks ago. I’ve gotten a few here and there since, but really just haven’t bothered, focusing instead on the daily hunt logs, Vanu Vanu quests and the leveling roulette. Part of it is due to what I said before, with the gear drops from Alex Normal and the 2 new experts being quite good and uncapped so they can get me to “good enough” pretty quickly, but I thing that the biggest part of it is that the left side pieces are class-specific, and since I’m so bad with alt-itis, I just don’t have any idea which class I’d want to start “Eso-ing up” so I’m experiencing a bit of decision paralysis. And that’s why lately with the Eso’s I have been getting I’ve been buying the right-side pieces instead, since they’re good for several jobs simultaneously, which helps more for the alt-itis, but they aren’t as important, so I’ve just stopped caring instead. I’ve already got my main job completely geared out in Eso stuff, so the rest just doesn’t matter as much.
I had planned to also run the Void Ark this weekend, but IRL conspired against me. I had a wonderful afternoon with my daughter on Saturday, though, and Sunday afternoon my wife and I were doing a marathon run through the new Jessica Jones series on Netflix which went until it was late enough that I fell asleep during an episode that I’ll need to re-watch sometime this week and then we’ll finish the series this coming weekend, most likely. But yeah… meant for less play time. I still managed to get my Warrior job to 59, and the DRK’s well on its way there and will probably make it there tonight, or tomorrow for sure, so even while it still always feels like there’s more to do… I also feel like I’m “getting there.”
Happy gaming out there!
