[FFXIV] Melee Progress
I did quite a bit with Monk and Ninja over the weekend also, getting Monk to 42 and Ninja to 39. Not perfectly in sync, but close enough for government work. And hey, with getting Monk to 42, I finally have Mantra — the final cross-class skill. Except I don’t even remember which class is supposed to like it as a cross-class and what little I do remember of the guide said that it was very much an edge-case rarely-used skill regardless. I’ll have to read up some more on it to see.
Since every job that can take advantage of the Heavensward stuff is already level 60 and doesn’t gain xp anymore I’ve been playing my summoner to do my “daily chores” of running the Vanu Vanu quests for the bone thingie that I’ll eventually need for the relic weapon, as well as continuing the daily hunts. Can never have too many Centurio seals, it would seem.
I actually queued up for the level 60 and expert roulettes this weekend to grab some Esoteric tomes. I wanna get that last i200 ring for my caster set. I also did the Void Ark. Got the i200 tank helmet as a drop, plus my Mhachi Farthing and 4 of the log thingies got me 2 more upgraded Esoteric pieces, so all I have left for my summoner to be “maxed” is to upgrade that last ring with Eso’s and to upgrade my bracelet to i210. And then I’ll look into getting an i205 or i210 weapon as well, though for some reason Squeenix loves to make the capped out weapons harder to get than the armor. Guess it’s something to shoot for. As it is, I’ve got an average item level of 206 now, and the final 2 pieces will probably take it to 207… maybe 208. Not bad for someone who mostly plays on weekends and pretty much stopped “the gear grind” back in November, no?
Happy gaming out there!
