I got my last job to 60 a bit over a month ago and since then have logged in maybe 1x a week. What is it with me and needing to level a character up all the time?

FFXIV is in a bit of a holding pattern for me while waiting for Stormblood to come out, but I'm still plugging away at gearing up different roles and getting all my jobs to 60.

I finally gave "One Tamriel" a look.


It's fine. to the point I'd almost call myself addicted to it. On the other hand, my level 5 character felt about the same as my VR6 character, so it seems like there's no real feeling of progression anymore.

One Tamriel is the best thing that could happen to ESO in my opinion!


I don't really like raiding in any MMO anymore, and don't care for the Primal fights much at all. But Alex 10-12 was fun enough I went back and did A9N again, and plan to repeat them all this coming weekend too...

I got mine from my friend @Cornilius <3 :D Cutest pet ever!

It's a rare drop from the final boss of the level 55 dungeon "The Aery." But it's rare enough that I've never even seen it drop, and I've run that dungeon many many many times. So to get it randomly from the Palace of the Dead was a very nice surprise.

I have never seen it drop either and I have many jobs to 60 at the moment!

Kinda apathetic about mmo's right now, though I'm still logging in every day. Even so the "not really doing anything new or exciting" makes me not really care to post either. But here's an update anyway --
