Yesterday I hit level 48 on my marauder thanks to the daily roulette, and I’m working through the main story though I’m only in the 30’s for that. I know you can purchase a boost that will unlock all the story stuff from the mog station but I wanted to experience it myself, otherwise what’s the point in playing.
I reached level 35 in mining and I’m learning how much I dislike harvesting 99 nodes for NPC only slightly less than I enjoy harvesting 15 high quality nodes. It’s nice brainless work at least, so I can relax from the daily grind of smushing mobs.
I hired two retainers and I designated one as an explorer and one as a miner. I was contemplating paying for extras but then I saw the price and I have no idea if it’s worth it or not. The completionist in me wants to hire all 8, but that would be an extra $14 a month USD on top of my subscription and that seems like a lot. It’s something I’ll think about though.
I’ve unlocked some dungeons and housing zones and as I did that I came up with my ultimate FFXIV goal for myself which is to own an awesome home some place. I’m not really familiar with how it all works yet but I believe I have to wait until plots are open just like ArcheAge which I absolutely hated. Maybe that’s not the case, but I think that’s how the system works. I also need a LOT more gil (currency) than I have now. The cheapest house is a room I can rent in our FC house, which is 300,000 gil. I am close to affording that much at least, but I am no where near the millions required for an actual home.
Some people dungeon, some raid, some collect – me? I do housing.
It’s nice to have goals.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
