Pre-Patch 1.18 Goal ThreadFollow

A while back we used to have a weekend goal thread where people would post on a Friday what they wanted to get done and then come back on the monday and see if they met any/all of their goals. I know some people who are trying to get all their DoW/DoM classes to 50 before the leve nerf and some who want to get fishing to 50 before the grade 6-10 nerf. So if you are still playing, what are your goals you want to reach in the 2 weeks before patch 1.18 arrives?

For me I want to:
Get THM to 50 (Its the last battle class that I like playing enough to want to grind)
Get all classes to at least 20 to join all guilds (only FSH left)
Get my first r50 crafting class - ALC
Finish the last 2 story quests
Finish the rest of the sidequests

I won't be getting close to 50 as I only seriously got into fishing a few days ago, but 36 looks to be reachable. At least when/if I fish after 1.18 it won't be for all trash fish.

Pre-Patch 1.18 goal?

Do as much fishing as possible in Grade 10 waters to skill up.

Honestly I quit playing until the update. I don't really enjoy crafting but I do it in conjunction with my battle leves (I don't like craft grinding, doing the locals is mostly enjoyable for me), but I don't want to play my combat classes because I like to level up and learn as I go. I don't want all the changes and to be 50 and not be able to grow with my character.

If I did log in it would be crafting only, but I picked up Sims Medievil and DS3 and have been enjoying both while waiting for the patch. I don't think it's gonna fix everything, I definately don't expect it to, but I know it's a major milestone for the road forward and I look forward to the patch.

To try to get my Pup in ffxi to 90 with capped skill, its currently 22. Oh did you mean FFXIV? I can't bring myself to log in anymore, I tried to keep my motivation, but just can't do it anymore. Even after the recent news. Its just too uneventful and boring. The job system is so lacking and the magic casting is so lackluster.

DISCLAIMER: This is a troll post, brought to you by the inner troll council.

I want to work really hard on my toon so that he is ready for what will inevitably be a mediocre and underwhelming patch. That way the disappointment and anger are amplified by the exceptional amount of time wasted in "getting ready for the patch", so that maybe I can just move on, stop logging in, and most importantly stop coming to the ZAM forums. Seriously, the only thing sadder than FFXIV in it's current state is threads like this in the ZAM forums where the hopeless addicts desperately hold on to that last glimmer of hope for the game. And maybe I'm worse for coming back over and over again hoping for something new, different, fixed, etc.

More power to you guys though: when the game is good in 1-2 years, you'll be WAY ahead of the crowd. Just keep sipping that kool-aid, hang on Yoshi's every word, and keep playing this game "as-is" if you actually enjoy it in it's current state. Just please don't think for ONE second that 1.18 is a significant enough patch to justify this thread; you are only setting yourself up for a huge disappointment. It's another step in the right direction, but there is still a LONG LONG way to go...

But it's so shiny!

Honestly I'm having the same problem though but I was planning on ranking up Fisher anyway at some point that I might as well get it as far up as I can before they nerf it to ****. The subligar is just me giving myself a reason to log in while the game is in its current state.

Wait to hear if it's any good before spending another second in Eorzea.

^ Zam covers a lot of games. Why quit coming to the Zam forums just because you hate FFXIV?

For me it's 'have fun talking to Linkmates' :P
I leveled all the battle classes that I wanted and I don't think I'll be touching crafting classes till they improve that aspect of the game as well.
Maybe I'll do some fishing and mining/botany, while having fun talking to Linkmates :D

EDIT: Aaah I forgot about the fishing nerf!!!!! /panic /heavy breathing /paper bag
That will truly suck indeed :( I might actually focus on that. At r40 for a long time but this seems to be a good time to try and grind it as much as possible before they take my grade 10 spots away ; ;
