    Just hit 60 on Ninja. Have like 1 or 2 quests left to finish 3.0 Samurai is close behind at 59.
    I think I may abandon my Monk class. It's back around 55 currently and I'm not sure I'm fond enough of it to spend the time catching it up. Despite it being my original track.
    I'm kind of a GHOST mooch. I'm in the FC but I leave the chat channel off the majority of the time. It's just too much most of the time to leave on.
    But if anyone ever needs a hand or a PA linkshell etc, I'm Archie Banner on Sarg.

    Finished Heavensward. Mostly trying to go through each of the new dungeons unlocked now, build up some stones to gear up.
    I never managed to get through the Binding Coils, and it's looking like Alexander also doesn't have much action in the duty finder queues either.
    But I did run the Void Ark. It's odd the 24 person runs are easier to drop into than the 8 man raids.

    So far the 2nd round of Hilldibrand quests does not seem as good as the first. But the other one about the seminary students is kind of interesting.

    Depending on the time, you can find unsynched groups for the Binding Coil of Bahamut (and sometimes Alexander) in the Party Finder since they're both included in Wondrous Tails. Second Coil Turn 4 still requires doing the mechanics even unsynched, and I think maybe one other?

    I'll sometimes see groups in the PF for people wanting to run the whole thing, but don't know how quick they'll fill up. Might be quicker just to create one for each individual Turn and just put "WT" in the description.

    Tuesdays would be a good day to look since that's when people get new Wondrous Tails books.

    If I remember correctly, the Scholasticate was meant to be the big sidequest of HW instead of Hildibrand, but people demanded Hildibrand so it got added later as kind of a last minute thing. It's still got some fun parts. It doesn't have any Trials though, which was a shame as I really liked the ARR ones (though some people hated them since at the time it was required to unlock all Trials to get access to Trial Roulette, though that is no longer the case).

    So at this point should I just completely ignore this Diadem side thing? Or is there some worthwhile stuff to do even though everything's moved on gear/level wise etc.

    It's completely ignorable in terms of gear (as the stats are no longer important, and I believe all the gear uses the models of gear obtainable elsewhere), but there are some pets that I think only drop there. Most are available on the marketboard though.

    I think the only things completely exclusive to the Diadem are the white pegasus mount and the pegasus pet. Both of those can only be purchased with a currency you only get from the Diadem. If you don't want those, you can safely ignore the Diadem entirely. If you do want those things...well, maybe Eureka (the Stormblood Diadem that they're saying is not like the Diadem) will use the same currency when it comes out? Alternatively, SE does try to give people a reason to queue for old content, so maybe some more incentives will come around eventually (ie. sticking it in the WT book or making an Exploratory Mission roulette or something).

    Alternatively, we might be able to put together an FC group for it or something. If I'm online I might be able to come along if my arm isn't giving me too much trouble at that time.

    I never did the gatherer's version of the Diadem so can't speak about that one.

    Okay, didn't need any of the ones that give currency...

    The only combat XP ones I didn't get done were the Levequest ones, which is 30% of a level, but combat XP has a lot of ways to get so that's no big deal...

    I did the crafting ones...

    Didn't do the gathering ones but that's okay...

    Didn't do the Chocobo ones...aw fuck!

    Sentai class changing is good but I'm of the mind that VPose from Red Mage into a different outfit is superior.

    Easiest way to get Chocobo ones done each week is to do treasure maps and hunt bills.

    Well, I finally finished Stormblood.

    I spent the last two months working through the MSQ with Sier, Mara and another friend of ours.

    We took a few screenshots at what we felt were good points to do so, but tried not to make it too spoilery.

    I posted them on Tumblr here.

    I'm glad we went into the final boss with friends. We went in blind and we had two people that remembered the fight.

    It was a fun boss fight, but I can see how people would screw it up.

    Just beat Garuda.

    Is this game ever going to cool it with the buttering up the player thing? Like, I know most RPGs have a glossy "look how awesome you are" layer to them, and that's fine, but man this game lays it on thick.

    Story is still bad, but I'm enjoying the gameplay a lot. I don't know if I'm just liking the Paladin more than the Warrior, or if I'm playing with proper expectations of what the game is like this time. Probably more of the latter.

    Last night really pissed me off, though. MSQ sent me to a location to click a thing to fight a dude, and when I get there there's a goddamn FATE sitting right on top of it. It's a FATE with a boss and adds, no NPC helpers, and on a small map with no roaming FATE player groups likely to show.

    It's probably okay moving forward, though. I'm right at the point where I have to start doing daily group events in order to level (quests aren't quite enough to see me through any more), so I can just do those while waiting for inappropriately-placed FATEs to expire.

    I managed to finish the achievements for the Frontlines and Wolves Den Garo mounts. Normally, I am not a fan of PVP at all in most MMOs, but the combination of set pvp stats, slower pace, need for coordination by party members, and lack of premades has actually made this fun.

    I don't feel like I ever had to grind for levels. At least until I tried to level up a side class. The roulette options in the duty finder offer a ton of bonus exp once per day. Maybe that hasn't Unlocked yet. Also if you haven't done them, the guildhests are worth doing each once. When they're all cleared you get some decent gear for the level. Including an exp boost item I think.

    I managed to get through all of Alexander over the weekend. That was fun. Did most of them synced. The final 3 levels I did unsynced which makes them a little too easy/abrupt. I've also managed the first two post heavensward alliance runs. One more to go there. I've started back in on the MSQ again.

    I don't mind the whole "buttering up the player" thing, because it ties into an interesting thing the story becomes after a while, especially after you hit that first set of credits

    you keep doing impossible things, and the base story ends with you basically single-handedly saving the world, so it only makes sense for the way most other characters see you to reflect that

    you've become Superman or Captain America or All Might or insert-inspirational-superhero-here, and your reputation now lets you solve problems practically just by walking into the room

    in a roundabout way, and intentionally or not, everything after 2.0 is an exploration of what happens right after a typical JRPG's story ends, and both the power and limitations of being that kind of celebrity

    now I'm still in the bridge from ARR to Heavensward, so it might shift into something totally different later on, but I'm digging what it is now

    I'll take being fawned over a little too much over the plot constantly acting like you don't exist like every other MMO, any day.

    Heavensward story stuff.
    Also boy that stops being a thing REAL quick when you get near/to HW. Fucking Ilberd.

    Whole game story stuff
    I feel like the game is maybe building to some kind of reveal about the nature of the WoL? Like, we know about the echo, and being chosen by Hydalen, but I think there's something more to how the WoL keeps defeating such massive threats almost singlehandedly.
