With the early access period for Endwalker starting on Friday, last weekend I spent a bit of time preparing for launch. Having done this with a lot of games over the years, I have a pretty good routine down at this point. The big points have been cleaning out my bags, making sure I have enough buff food and chocobo greens. There have been a few other points that have made sense given the changes that they're making:
- First, since none of my retainers are max level yet, I got them all right to the point where they just leveled up. Partial xp levels are going to be erased.
- Second, I've gone in a desynthed all of my belts that I have stashed anywhere.
- I'll also be logging out tomorrow in an inn room to make it easier to log back in once launch occurs.
- I've also tried to do some clean up on my retainers' bags, desynthing old gear that has no future use and getting rid of a few other odds and ends that have accumulated. Even for someone that has only been playing for about a year and a half, I've still accumulated an enormous amount of stuff.
