Playing Catch Up
I’ve been away from EQ2 since 2016, so of course I’ve missed out on a few expansions worth of content. One of my broader goals while I’m playing is to get my crafters caught up; including the quest chains (signature) that they’re missing. I had a few characters who were not quite 100 crafter (that was the cap when I played last) so my initial goal is to get them all to 100 through guild writs. Then after that, they’ll start signature quests. It’s a long and tedious process, but one that I actually find quite enjoyable. For each character that you have at cap, you gain a 20% bonus for the alts. I know that there’s probably going to be an expansion coming up that raises the level cap (again) and I’d like to be ready for it. I am not 100% sure that I’ll be playing, but I’d like to be.
Thing is, almost everyone I know is playing FFXIV. I also want to be playing FFXIV. I think that game is incredible – but I also don’t want to be paying for more than one subscription at a time, and I’m not ready to bail on EQ2 yet, having just returned and invested in the current expansion. I’m fighting off the urge with all of my being. There was a time when I might have subscribed to 2-3 maybe even 4 MMO at once, but these days I’m a lot more realistic about where I put my money. After all, I could subscribe to one MMO and have some play money left over for yarn, or.. well, you see what I’m getting at here. Yarn > all.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
