    I think I need a new goal. Unlocking Paladin was my initial drive, followed by getting to 50 so I'll be ready to unlock Gunbreaker. But since Gunbreaker isn't around for months yet, and Paladin is just kind of a placeholder, I can feel my enthusiasm for the next 20 levels waning a bit. Assuming I stay fairly focused on story missions, and whatever other level-appropriate quests are around where story missions happen, how long do you think the push to 50 will take? And are there any other interesting content or region unlocks in the near future? I'm at the level 24 story mission "Ratting It Out", and currently level 30.

    Pretty sure you can hit 50 just from the MSQ alone at this point, you'll be 53-54 before you end start HW stuff.

    Have they said if Gunbreaker will need a minimum MSQ progress? I know SAM and RDM were somewhat easier on that than the HW classes, but gunblades are very specifically Garlean so it may not make sense until at least post ARR.

    I haven't seen anything, so I'm planning to take the story as far as I can just to be safe. But I've got months, so it doesn't feel like there's any need to rush.

    Oof, yeah - the level 50 2.0-2.55 content is a long haul. You beat the main ARR story arc and then they stumble back into padding things out for a bit. I don't think it really picked back up much until the stuff that leads into Heavensward. But there's basically all of ARR over again in quest count there.

    On the plus side, the MSQ gets better from there on out

    The stuff after the ARR MSQ is decent, and then Heavensward is pretty good

    Everyone who told me the FFXIV story is good prior to that point should be in prison right now, but we live in a fundamentally unjust society

    It's a big part of why I hit a bit of a brick wall with leveling and had to take a break. They should really streamline that stuff, or at the very least remove a lot of the back and forth delivery quests.

    Like, the number of quests you get that are "go to the leader of this city, then to this random town slightly far away from a crystal, then to Horizon" was completely unreasonable.

    They actually did slightly streamline the level 50 content at one point.

    There used to be some quests that required you to go and complete every single guildhest before you were allowed to continue the MSQ.

    Logically, I get that the 'quick' way to Vesper Bay is to take the ferry from Limsa, but goddamn I never did. Always the Horizon Aetherite for me.

    Haven't played in awhile because of a bug of the game freezing when I exit. Got an email that my FC's home was scheduled for demolition, so I patched up and logged in. Looks like one of the patches fixed issue. I need to finish up Stormblood's story one of these days.

    Looking back over my history with other MMOs, the trick to avoiding burnout for me has consistently been RP. I don't know how much RP actually happens on Sargatanas (and if it does, I do think I've got a solid idea of who Siege is as a character), but Mateus was accepting new characters this morning, so I rolled a couple alts. If you see me online but not on our regular server, it's because I'm tired of bouncing across the continent doing story quests with Siege, and taking a break being a cat person pirate.

    I found the trick to avoiding burnout on story or grinding levels, etc was to change things up and do what seemed fun at the time. Sometimes that was sidequests/unlocking dungeons and raids. Sometimes that was messing around in the Golden Saucer. So, changing things up and doing some RP seems like a good plan. I also tried to take the story for what it was when doing the 50+ MSQ quests and tried to enjoy what it revealed about characters and the world. Somehow, it made it more bearable for me, although I acknowledge that there's a fair bit of padding in those quests.

    I spent way too long collecting Triple Triad cards and not enough time leveling.

    Shame Heavensward and onward had bullshit rules like Random, which means something very different when you have 50+ possible cards and your opponent has 6 and none of them are weak.

    I mean, “far too late” is probably exactly right.
    she’d been lying on the floor, bleeding(?) for, what, hours? One imagines that there’s a point past which a few Cure spells won’t be able to repair the damage done.

    Conversely, a lot of story fights become utterly unlosable but boring slogs as a healer. Especially SCH because you could literally set Eos to sic and just autoattack them dead most of the time.

    My next goal is to get all 3 caster DPS up to 70. BLM is there, working on RDM now.

    At 56 right now and I like the class a lot, but I'm having a slightly annoying time finding a keybind/hotbar setup that works for me. Normally I put spells with a cast bar on q/e/r/f/t and procs/oGCDs on mouse buttons (I have one of those dumb mmo mice), but for whatever reason I just can't find a setup I like for this job.

    Think I'll try moving displacement to the keyboard for now; most of my fuckups have been going for Contre Sixte and fat fingering displacement instead, then having to run back in to finish my melee combo.
