So many cut scenes, so little time
I’ve been playing Final Fantasy for a bit over two weeks now, and I have been having such an incredible time I wonder why I didn’t stick with the game previously. Granted, experience is VASTLY changed to how it was when I used to play, but the game really does cater to everything I love in an MMO.
Two weeks in I’ve managed to finish the first Main Story Quest (MSQ) and move past the filler quests that led to Heavensword, which is where I’m at now. I loved my Warrior, but I had high anxiety tanking dungeons which are a requirement for the MSQ (you can bypass this for a small fee) so I swapped over to Red Mage, which I enjoy but I don’t love.
I’m now a level 57 red mage, with a 50 warrior. I plan on adding a white mage to my arsenal along with a dancer once I hit 60.
I’ve also been doing a LOT of crafting and harvesting which so far is just pure joy.
- 62 mining

- 19 carpenter
- 15 blacksmith
- 15 leatherworker
- 23 weaver
- 13 alchemist
- 11 culinarian
- 13 botanist
- 17 fisher
I’ve been collecting poetics and upgrading my gear, my ‘ilevel’ (whatever they call it in this game) is standing at 121 and I’m wearing ironworks gear that I’m slowly upgrading. I’ve also made it to Flame Sergeant First Class, I’m trying to earn more seals so that I can continue to rank up. I’ve been spending my seals on my retainers, so that’s why I haven’t gotten very far in that yet.
I feel like there is SO MUCH to do, and I keep discovering more. Mounts, minions, appearance gear, not to mention the fact that I’m not even near the current content, I’m still expansions behind. It has been a whirlwind of activity, and I’m loving every minute of it.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
