[FFXIV] All Combat Jobs are 60
Last week I was just shy of 57 on the Ninja and dinged the level Monday evening from doing the daily Vanu Vanu, Nonmind, and hunts. Yes, I get the Lore tomes from Nonmind quests if I do them on a level 60 j0b, but I was already capped for the week, so I used the quests as a leveling device on the 2 days where I didn’t need the tomes anymore. I kept doing that through the week, so when I got to Saturday I made it to 59. As you can see in the screenshot above, I’ve run it a lot on my other jobs so I had a full set of dungeon gear on the left side, and was only missing the necklace on the right side — and even there I still had the level 57 one from the Vault, so I was quite well-equipped for that level.
Moving on to Sunday, I ran the Library and that got me to about 33% of the way through the level. The queues for dps were being a little wonky in their length in the morning, so I decided to do the dailies again, which pushed me to about halfway. Then I bit the bullet and ran a leveling roulette and got Brayflox. That put me to about 80% of the level. I considered just waiting until today and doing another run of dailies, but nah… Another Library run and that did it!
The level 60 Ninja quest was quite easy at i180, as I’ve come to expect with the other jobs. I think they tune it for i135 or i140, so the gear gap really makes quite a difference. It was a fun story, especially the part where the villains are gloating about their victory and then suddenly bodies start to fall and my character walks up with this “What? You thought you’d WON?” expression on her face. That was worth a laugh.
While I worked on my character with the dailies through the week, I also did the same with my daughter’s character. She likes the Vanu Vanu snake mount and wants that, and since Vath come earlier in the MSQ line now I was farther along with them and got high enough to buy the kongamato/dragonfly mount. Oddly enough, she likes it when *I* have it, but when I showed her that she has it, she didn’t care.
My FC has started doing unsycn’d Primal Ex runs for ponies on Tuesday nights, so I took her on the Shiva run we did last Tuesday. Saw the whistle drop, but didn’t win the roll, and we only did a total of 4 runs so we didn’t get it for everyone anyway. But I will eventually get her some of the sparkle ponies that she wants. And I still need to start running Diadem so I can accumulate the spoils needed to get her the pegasus too. There’s still so much to do…
Something else that I did with her character was run Void Ark. I even managed to wine the caster robe for her on that run. Never seen it drop on my character, but on her 1st run — kablammo! I’d also gotten enough Esoterics doing Vanu Vanu quests over time to buy her i200 weapon, so running Void Ark I could buy the item needed to upgrade it to i210. And then I realized I haven’t yet done that on my character. Oops! So yeah, had to swap over and run it again on my character as well. I also unlocked Neverreap, Fractal Continuum, and St. Mocianne’s Arboretum for her, and I still need to run Pharos Sirius on Normal before I can unlock the hard mode to get the level 60 roulette to open up.
I also have been working on the MSQ again. I’m past 3.1 now, and the next quest I do in the 3.2 line will open up Antitower. And then I’ll need to go run Lost City of Amdapor normal so I can unlock the hard mode and thus have the current Expert roulette open too. Or maybe not, since I really only need to do the pony runs and Diadem to get her the mounts that she wants. I think I’ve got it geared up well enough now to be able to handle all of that anymore. We’ll see.
In other gaming news, my daughter and I visited a friend and while the 2 girls played with the dogs (mostly running back and forth and back and forth in the back yard) we played some tabletop games. We started with a round of British Rails and then his wife got home, so we moved on to a card game that they like which I’ve not tried before called 7 Wonders. That one was interesting becuz it’s played in 3 rounds, is all, and it goes fairly quickly. I didn’t know strategies or anything, so winged it as best as I could and still came in a respectable 2nd place. It was a very fun afternoon.
On the way home we saw an IFA store and since it’s that time of the year we stopped in so my daughter could see the chicks they have for sale. She hasn’t stopped talking about it since, wants to get one and take it home, etc. Such is the way of little girls, right?
Happy gaming out there!
