Since my last blog post, and in the previous week or two, I decided to dive back into Elder Scrolls Online to take a spin through the new chapter - Necrom. So no spoilers at all on the story, but I found it engaging. The new zones are well put together, and there's a lot of good content there. The story itself was pretty typical ESO fare but still very engaging. For reasons I don't entirely understand, I'm not an altoholic when it comes to ESO, so everything gets played through on my normal Magicka Templar, which handled all of the content without much trouble.
There is also a new class to try - the Arcanist - which is closely linked to the new content. I've also gone back and cleaned up my quest log in ESO, finishing up many quests that I started but never finished, so I now have my main in a pretty clean place and ready for the next batch of content when it releases. It makes me wonder if I shouldn't try some of the other classes.
In FFXIV, I continue to run through the new raid on my Summoner and am down to only needing 3 more leg tokens to complete the gear set from the new raid. And, of course, the 7 weapon tokens, which aren't possible at this point.
I'm also continuing to work on leveling my last few jobs. My paladin sits at level 72, and my Monk is at level 59. I'm enjoying them both. Dark Knight and Dragoon are the last two before I am an Omni-90, so those are obviously up next. Ideally, this would all stretch out until not long before the next expansion releases, but we'll see.
Guild Wars 2
I managed to get the Warrior to max level and have now started working on leveling a Mesmer, who is already at level 35. With the Warrior done, that gives me 4 characters at max - Necro, Revenant, Ranger, and Warrior. I haven't unlocked any elite specs on the Warrior or Revenant, so that's also on the to-do list if I hit a dry spell in other games. After the Mesmer is done, I think either Thief or Engineer is next, but we'll have to see on that one.
That is the update for the last few weeks. It's a bit light because we went on a family vacation to Virginia Beach the week of June 12th. It's the first vacation we've been on with both Joarlings that are still at home since before the pandemic, so it was nice to get away with everyone. My wife and I got engaged in Virginia Beach, but I don't think we've been there since, so it was nice to return.
