Shadowbringers DOH / DOL Leveling

There are quite a few updates this week, but I'm going to start with FFXIV.  I managed to get all of my DOH/ DOL (crafting and gathering jobs) through the Stormblood levels and have now moved on to the current Shadowbringers content.  This involved crafting new sets of gear for both gathering and crafting, both of which had full usable sets of level 71, which was nice!  This gear also looks quite a bit better than the later Stormblood stuff did.  Gathering gear is the top picture and crafting gear is the bottom.  

Shadowbringers also brings two new beast tribes which also provide experience for these jobs - the Dwarves, which provide daily quests providing crafting xp, and the Qitari, which provides gathering job xp.  As far as I know, this is the first time we've seen a gathering dedicated beast tribe, which is nice.

They were fairly involved quest lines to unlock both of those, but the stories for both were definitely engaging and worthwhile.

Here is where I currently stand on all of these jobs:


Carpenter - 72
Blacksmith - 73
Armorer - 73
Goldsmith -73
Leatherworker - 72
Weaver - 73
Alchemist - 72
Culinarian - 72


Miner - 73
Botanist - 73
Fisher - 72

Elder Scrolls Online

There is an in-game event this week called the Jester's Festival that gives an automatic 100% boost to experience with an item that you receive from the intro quest.  So I'm going to try to leverage that into some significant progress on my Magicka Templar.  He's currently sitting at level 30 and finishing up the Daggerfall Covenant story line, which has been really fun and engaging.  I'm really looking forward to going back and trying the other two at some point.

After finishing this one up, the plan is to do some of the intro material from Cyrodill in order to get the mount speed boost, and then keep working chronologically through the content.  The Templar looks pretty decent so far.  The armor you get always seems to be nicely coordinated.

That's about it for this week.
