Back to Working on the Dragoon

I returned from my trip to the Netherlands last week and am working diligently on leveling my Dragoon.  Since my previous update, I managed to finish the Dark Knight, so the Dragoon is the only one left of the regular classes I still need to get to 90.  Note that I'm saying normal because I technically still have a Blue Mage that I need to get from 50 to 80, but I'm not looking forward to that.

The Dragoon is currently sitting at level 76.  I finished up the job story quests, which were really quite excellent.  I'm not traveling again anytime soon other than the typical weekend at water polo tournaments with the youngest, so I should be able to knock this one out quickly.

I should get the Dragoon to max level just in time for the launch of the next patch, which will bring a bunch of new content and a new alliance raid.  I can use that as a chance to gear up all of my various jobs, along with running daily experts.

Besides, I've been wondering a bit about how to keep myself busy.  I've been thinking about resubscribing to World of Warcraft just to get caught up on the content there.  I also need to finish the new expansion content in Guild Wars 2 on my Necromancer.  Beyond that, I've just been doing daily crafting scrips in ESO to slowly level up the various crafting professions I haven't already done - primarily alchemy, provisioning, and jewel crafting. 

That's it for now.

Finished Secrets of the Obscure

It's been a while since I've posted, particularly after the flurry of Blaugust.  At least a flurry relative to my normal pace of posting.  Things have been busy with real life for the last week or so - my youngest son's high school hosted a big water polo tournament this past weekend, and as the finance guy, a lot of behind-the-scenes work running the tournament ended up falling on me.

Things have also been pretty busy at my regular day job.  

Today was the first time since last week that I've had any play time.  I have finished up Secrets of the Obscure since the last I posted.  I may run through it on my Necromancer and then go back to getting my Mechanist caught up on current content.  Then I'll need to decide if I want to try running my Ranger through stuff.

On the FFXIV front, I've continued to work on leveling both the Dark Knight and Dragoon.  The Dark Knight is at level 82 and the Dragoon is around 65, so they're both in very good shape.  I've gotten two new mounts out of the Mogstone event, and I hope to get quite a few more once my play time frees up a bit.  

Next week, I should be able to invest a bit more time, but then the following week, I'm going to be out of the country all week, so there won't be anything happening then.

That's all the update for now.



Trying the MOP Remix

I'll cover this update by game since I've been somewhat active in pretty much everything except FFXIV in the last few weeks: World o...
