I need to figure out a better way to budget my time. Streaming 5-6 nights a week while working a full time job doesn’t leave a lot of extra time to write blog posts. Even this one is going to be pathetically short. There will be pictures, though. People like pictures, right? 😉
With the release of patch 3.3, I’ve been busy with all the new content: A new relic grinding step, new dungeons, a new 24-man raid, crafting, Moogle dailies, the Aquapolis… So much to do, so little time!
I always love the beautiful detail in this game. This view is from one of the new dungeons, Hullbreaker Isle (Hard). Such a lovely sunset. And here’s another random picture I took that I thought was pretty:
One of the things we’ve spent a lot of time doing is Dragonskin maps. Each map has a chance to spawn a portal to a treasure hunting dungeon, called The Aquapolis. Once inside, you fight all the enemies in a room and then you can choose between two doors. One will take you to the next level. One will kick you out of the dungeon. It is purely RNG. And RNG really hates me. We did about 35 maps and went into the Aquapolis around 25 times before we finally got to the end of the dungeon. (There are 7 rooms.) Most of the time, we didn’t even get past room 3.
Honestly, the Aquapolis was becoming very UN-fun because we kept getting kicked out so early. We finally reached the end ONCE. It was VERY satisfying. We now just do one map each per day, so as not to get burnt out. Honestly, I think part of our problem was that we had amassed a LOT of maps so we were doing the same thing over and over again with little reward. Not smart.
The other thing I’ve been spending lots of time on is crafting and beastman dailies. I bought the Blue Scrip crafting sets for my three specialists, Blacksmith, Armorer, and Goldsmith. (I didn’t buy the gloves since I already bought Ironworks gloves, which are better when fully melded with materia.) I forgot to take a picture of Armorer, but here are Blacksmith and Goldsmith.
I’m rank 6 with the Moogles (out of 8), so I was able to buy my cute Moogle slippers.
And speaking of me looking ridiculous, I bought a $20 PSN card so I could get the summer freebie items. This is why Femroes shouldn’t wear the maid outfit. I look absolutely silly:
In other news, I finally got past the Riku fight in Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix last night. Man, that was tough. At least now I can continue the game!
Tonight on Twitch I’ll be playing FFXIV, doing crafting, dailies, and whatever else. Come by and say hi! 🙂
