I found out a few days ago that Final Fantasy 14 was having a free login event in August. This could not come at a more perfect time. I’ve been itching to play the game again but didn’t want to pay for a months sub since No Man’s Sky comes out in a few weeks. If I start my free time in FFXIV tomorrow it’ll give me something to do over the weekend.
Right now I have a Bard sitting at level 49 and a White Mage sitting at 46. I’m hoping to get one or both of them to 50 before my free time is up. When I last played I was helping a friend level up and was messing around with a bunch of different classes. I switched to Bard after I got tired of healing and ran most of the Main Story Quests with it. With my free time, I’m going to work on my White Mage because a) I miss healing and found it really enjoyable in the past and b) I don’t want to sit in long DPS queues for dungeons.
Before I let my sub lapse I was getting into crafting and gathering and I was trying to level all the classes at once. As a result, my inventory and both of my retainers were filled up with raw crafting materials. This made it hard to do other things like pick up gear in dungeons. Maybe when I come back to the game for real I’ll get the itch to craft again.
If I can manage it, I’d like to start doing the rest of the quests before the expansion. I hear that it takes some time and when I actually come back to the game I want to jump right in to Heavenward. Though I don’t know if I should wait and get the experience from those pre-Heavansward quests that comes with having the expansion.
At any rate, I miss my chocobo buddy and he must be feeling pretty lonely too After all, I’ve been away for quite some time.
