Right now we’re in the middle of the Lightning Strikes event on FFXIV. I believe all the stages are unlocked now and people are able to get the entire outfit and weapons from the event. If you’re curious as to what the event is, here is a link: http://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/special/2013/Lightning_Strikes/
Month: November 2013
I’ve been thinking a lot about wanting a fresh start on World of Warcraft for Warlords of Draenor. I want to raid again but I feel like I can’t really leave Aeternus without hard feelings so I decided to take part in a reroll project that currently is taking place on the Stormrage EU server. A lot of people were enthusiastic about the idea and we already have about 40 members in the guild. The project took of on Thursday evening at 19.30 server time and from then untill I logged off today I managed to get my baby Hunter up to lvl 30 without any help from RAF or looms.
I finally got my first relic weapon on Final Fantasy! It’s Thyrus, the White Mage relic. I worked hard for it, finally managed to down Titan HM after two weeks of wiping with random groups and now I have my pretty staff on Sarella! Mission accomplished. Now to just find some way to get into Bahamut’s Coil…
I don’t function well on Mondays. The day after the weekend I have huuuuge issues with getting back into the rythm of work, even if I only work 3 days a week, and on monday evening I’m just a huge wreck that doesn’t want to do anything but lay in bed and sleep. Maybe it’s because I sleep less on the weekends or just because I go to bed too late on Sunday but it’s the same thing every week. I’m exhausted at work and when I get home I just fall into bed and sleep untill dinner. When I’m still tired I sleep after dinner aswell and then I can handle the rest of the evening just fine untill I go to bed around 12, where I almost immediatly fall asleep again.
All this sleeping has caused some serious issues with my schedule, aka shit isn’t getting done, and I’m not really sure how to handle this. I’m currently playing 2 MMO’s, one more hardcore (FFXIV) than the other (WoW) but I don’t want to quit either one. I love playing Sarella on FFXIV and exploring the game more and more, finally levelling my gather professions and other classes and playing with friends. I also love playing Aylanna on WoW, she just feels so natural to play and WoW is a game that has got me hooked since I started in 2007 although I don’t play it that hardcore anymore.
With me playing two different MMO’s I’ve also noticed that I can’t really “alt” properly. Since I want to get capped on Myth Tomes on Sarella every week (which requires me to do 10 WP runs) but also want to do a complete LFR run on Aylanna while still maintaining my daily CD and Shaohao daily for rep it leaves me with very little time to do other stuff on the games. Sometimes I’m ok with this, sometimes it really frustrates me. Maybe it’s because I’m so used to jumping from character to character that it feels weird to stick to just 1 (or in my case 1 per game), or maybe I just need to accept the fact that I can’t do everything at once if I want to enjoy things.
Next to my MMO “struggles” I’ve also decided to pick up Assassin’s Creed III again, in preparation of IV coming out in a few weeks for the PC. I’ve even bought a controller since that plays a lot nicer than keyboard + mouse for games like that. And then there is Pokémon X aswell…
Maybe I’m just suffering from a classic case of: too many games to enjoy and too little time to enjoy them in. Especially since I’ve been working I’m just noticing I need to make tougher decisions when it comes to dividing my time between all the things that I like and have to do, and let’s just say that scheduling/planning/making decisions about my time isn’t one of my strong points. Ugh, I really do need to work on this 🙁
So yeah, with all these schedule conflicts and uncertainty about what to play I’m also not really updating my blog here regularly. A part of me also wants a new background that shows my hunter with the blue alliance symbol behind her and on the other side Sarella as white mage with the Twin Serpent symbol behind her. Not sure how I’m going to get that, but I’ll get it somehow!
For now I’m back to managing things on WoW and FFXIV and will blog about stuff again when I find some time to squeeze a writing session in.
