I've been able to get through a few of the new things that have come out in both World of Warcraft and FFXIV recently. On the Warcraft side, I had the chance to visit the Trading Post and also complete this month's challenge to get the mount on offer for the month.
It's a cool-looking mount. As it turns out, you can get about 75% of the monthly points needed to obtain it just from completing various Love Is In The Air activities, none of which take terribly long. Of course, you get quite a few points just from doing your regular stuff each month, so not sure using the holiday is all that necessary, but it ended up getting it done for me quite a bit faster than I likely would have done otherwise.
The other mount on offer from the Trading Post this month, for purchase with the coins you get, was the Celestial Steed, which I already have, so I can save those coins up for next month.
In other World of Warcraft news, I've mostly been doing World Quests and weekly quests on Joar to continue to work on faction renown. I did dip back into leveling my Shaman, although I've been mostly running dungeons to avoid the higher-level squishiness issue. I'm currently sitting at level 67, so getting pretty close.
On the Final Fantasy front, I finished the latest installment of the Tataru questline. I also got a 2nd piece of gear from the alliance raid, so hopefully, that's a sign of better luck in the coming weeks. Beyond that, I continue to focus on leveling the Ninja and Warrior, who are sitting at levels 71 and 70, respectively.
With Square's most recent earnings release making it clear that the next FFXIV expansion won't be coming in 2023, I'm confident that I should be able to level all of the remaining combat jobs to max level before the next expansion hits. Besides the Ninja and Warrior that I'm currently working on, the others that I still have to go include Sage, Black Mage, Paladin, Monk, Dark Knight, and Dragoon.
