I have yet to hit my goal of two posts a week this week because things have been nuts on the work front. I'm also doing some work travel for no good reason, restricting my playtime. I flew down to Atlanta, Georgia, this afternoon to join a colleague down here in attending a Zoom call. The other participants in the Zoom call will be in our corporate office in Ohio, where I flew from to get here. But this particular person thought having me in the room with him would be great. /Le sigh
Not only has my blog posting time been limited, but my playtime has also been limited as a result. But here goes:
I continue working on my Dark Knight and Dragoon jobs, which are sitting at level 70 and level 60, respectively. There's probably not going to be a ton more progress on either of them since the new Guild Wars 2 expansion is dropping next week, and I'll be working through that content on my Reaper. I am probably going to run through the current seasonal stuff to grab the Red Power Ranger outfit, as I definitely want to tank all of my MSQ roulettes as the Red Power Ranger for the rest of the time that I'm leveling Dark Knight.
Guild Wars 2
So that brings me to Guild Wars 2. I didn't get anywhere close to my goal of getting my Machinist current on content before the new expansion. I did manage to get him through the end of Path of Fire, which felt like pretty decent progress. The problem was I couldn't step away from FFXIV completely and was getting a little bit sucked into ESO. There are elements of ESO that are more conducive to my schedule when things get a little busy, and I can't necessarily commit to the uninterrupted time needed to run a roulette or commit to a particular story instance in GW2.
I managed to finish the Murkmire content, which brings me completely current on all non-thieving / murdering type content. It was a reasonably typical ESO storyline, but despite that, I always enjoy them. I also grabbed crafting writ certifications for everything so I can start leveling some of the crafts that I don't already have at max - mostly Jewelcrafting, Alchemy, and Provisioning. If things free up a bit after finishing the new GW2 stuff and my last two FFXIV jobs, I may come back and work on those, but that may be a few months.
Those are really the updates for now.
