I am applicant of the web guild here, and anyhow hello. I play FFXIV about every day, on the Exodus server (unfortunately not where OTG has an FC as I understand).
So I am playing FFXIV with my wife, we are working through the MSQ together in lieu of watching TV at night when she comes home from work. We started in December 2018.
We will probably be done in a few weeks, after 6 months of playing we are now 1/2 done with Shadowbringers (we just hit lvl 74 in MSQ last night).
We enjoy our Free Company, there are some friendly folks there that we appreciate, and have been in it for probably 4 months or so.
So my question is for suggestions to how best to spend my time in-game when not playing the MSQ. I play during the day while she is at work. I retired a few years ago so have more time on my hands. I have spent the in-game time leveling alt classes & jobs, and doing a lot of crafting. And marketboard sales for small items, nothing spectacular there but is steady gil.
I am at the Moogle quests for crafting right now for 2 classes, soon to be more, so level 50’s.
I really have more busywork in a day than I can keep up with between Moogle quests, Grand Company craft turn ins, and doing leveling duties. And then MSQ at night for an hour or two with my partner.
The one thing I know that I am missing is really deeply learning 1 job. And this concept of raiding in a static. I started with a tank, but backed off of that and focused on doing dps jobs until I can learn the dungeons (?). My goodness there are so many dungeons and trials that can pop up with the leveling duty!
Where to focus my energy in Final Fantasy is now my issue I guess. The standard advice I hear is to finish the MSQ. But I can not speed that along.
whew if you read this far, thanks, hope I did not bore you to much! The game is really fun. We get a lot of miles out of it in many different ways.
