Squadrons is a thing I never really messed with. I mean, I leveled them up and I send them our every week, but I never really messed with the lineup. Also one of my goals is to get the 100 squadron dungeons achievement. >.> I think I'm at like 40 or something lol

I got my desired lineup with five miqo girls, one miqo guy, and two female au ra; and then I got my promotions and never really went back. lol

They helped me get over some levelling humps on dps classes, but that's about it.

Felt like they cleared slightly faster than trusts in most level ranges, but were really stupid, but were really durable.

Well yeah, squadrons were precursors to XIV's Trusts, and Trusts were designed specifically to take about half an hour per dungeon. Squadrons were designed to be dumb but kinda quick, especially when the bug existed that allowed you to repeatedly "commence the assault" and end so many fights so fast.

My Bard is 79, and third of the way to 80 almost, and my Scholar and Summoner are 78, halfway to 79. Just from doing my dailies--pixie beast quests, roulettes, third rank of Nutsy marks--I am curious to see which of these will hit 80 first.

Then I need to use HoH to get Dnc (now 63) to 70, and the Stormblood leveling dungeons to send Gnb on its merry way. That way I can make a little room in my armory, though I suppose I can do that already for Dnc.

I've been trying to run Mt Gulg to get to 80 on my PLD for the past 40 minutes, and every time I get in my internet drops. -_- I just want my Amaro. ;-;

Today, after dailies, I plan to pick up the relevant weekly quest in Idyll, and then run Dun Scaith in the hopes of getting the belt and pants for casters. When I turn in the quest, I am getting the caster earrings. I am hoping the level 60 AF gear--assuming BLU is given some--will be good on secondary stats. The other accessories will be covered by the Shire set and Crit V melds. Perhaps I will do DS on Rdm so I can Need on those two pieces of gear.

Assuming my success with the belt and pants, I will see if I can't get some more BLU skills.

Then I will do any dungeon running AST needs to hit 74, and HoH runs to get Dnc to 76.

Nice!

Oh yeah 2 days ago I got my PLD to 80 and I got my Amaro. :D So my goals now are:
1) Level up and gear up my BLU this week, and complete all the challenges.
2) To gear up my tanks, and just spam the extreme trials in hopes of getting a gwiber, and also to get credit for my tank mounts!
3) Spam Firmament crafts to get the rewards I missed.
4) Spam leves to get the Honest Gillionaire title.
5) Spam PVP for mounts.
6) Continue to prog TEA, though we've made very little progress in the past month, and I'm kinda getting burnt out on it. We're STILL trying to figure out dolls and protean waves. IDK why it's taking so long to get past literally the very first mechanics. =/ Like every once in a blue moon we'll have a breakthrough and we'll get past protean waves. Then the next 60 pulls we just die over and over and over to dolls.

4) Spam leves to get the Honest Gillionaire title.

I remember grinding that one out over the course of a few months, starting from around 2.1mil out of 10mil. I used the leve that asks for palladium ink, and made 18 of them HQ each day (three turn-ins for each of six allowances). That was 8100 gil or more, on average, per leve. I am sure ShB has a better one in terms of reward for the mats and effort required. Look through the last two sets of leves per class for an item that is easy to gather for and make HQ, and be ready to do 18 of that item every day for a while.

I'm not sure, yet, when I'll ever get the 20mil achievement, but it's so low on my list of priorities.

I got pants from DS tonight, and did that quest. It's the necklace that's BiS, not the earrings as I had stated before; at least I got them. I suppose I'll grab the Aug. Shire Belt and hope for the best with what gear they give us on BLU 60.

I had also planned to do more with HoH tonight, but I ran out of both time and energy. In fact, I nearly dozed off once or twice just typing this message. Time to go to bed and have this sleepiness suddenly be no longer there, as is common when feeling sleepy. =p

Thanks to Entity, I already hit 60 on BLU, and so did she lol
I appreciate that they give you bonuses for clearing content on BLU now, and all of the Extreme/Savage achievements will probably take me months to get. I'm excited!

Also, Aetherial Mimicry is so cool. If you use on someone, you assume their role. So like if you use it on a healer. you assume a healer stance, and your healing spells gain potency. Or if you use it on a tank, you become a tank. That's so cool! Although it's mechanics like this is why BLU may never be a full job...

Those content chievs will take me a long while as well, even if I concentrated on them, because of my work and sleep schedule. That's not even counting how I still want to get more books out or play other games after I've caught up with leveling/gearing up in FFXIV.

Also, did Thok ast Thok hard for a spell. So one of the BLUs was tanking and for some fucking reason at the butterflies they ran around and physically touched all the butterflies. If you remember, Ravana does a bunch of cleaves at this part. So it turns out. He killed pretty much everyone except me and him. So we got the spell. Then we spent like an hour trying to help the rest get it. And when he FINALLY taught it agian, he did the exact same damn thing and kill 3 people. So I was just like "sorry guys gotta go!" I'm not spending my whole day dealing with this guy's stupidity. -_-

I know it doesn't really count for much, but IGN gave XIV the best ongoing game award.

So BLU is 60, geared, and working slowly to gain spells.

DNC is 68, meaning it will be 70 by the weekend and wearing the gear Brd used to utilize, and Mch still dawns. Then I will finally do the Dnc quests, which I fully expect to be kinda easy-ish with an iLV around 390.

Pixies reputation is maxed until the big quest chain at the end of the xpac that unites the tribes, meaning I will get the most exp possible from them going forward. I've picked up the rewards I want from them, too, so any extra tokens can go toward materia.

MCH is nearly 71 from beast dailies alone, and NIN is bound to follow. By the time NIN hits 71, DNC will long-since be ready to level with those daily quests.

AST is 76 and might need a better weapon than the Seiryu 395 one in case I get something higher-level during Leveling Roulette such as Mal's Well or Mt. Gulg. I am hoping to get that job to 80 by the end of the weekend, which will be great for armory space since it's my last healer I'm leveling until 6.0.

GNB remains at 61 at the moment, but will be kicking off the grind through StB dungeons soon. Once that one hits 70 with the dungeons--and then 71 via a combination of roulette and beast dailies--that will be even more armory space freed up.

I have decided getting RDM to 80 will be next after all of this. Beast dailies, alliance raids roulette, leveling roulette if someone in the FC is tanking or healing, and FATEs will be how I'm doing it.

I intend to run MNK and SAM through the leveling dungeons with half of the Trust characters, run Drg through FATEs and daily quests, and then have PLD and DRK accompany the other half of the Trust characters. But I will do this after RDM is leveled. lol

There won't be much left for combat jobs after that; MCH (saving for last), DNC, GNB, NIN, and BLM all to 80 from 71. Also, at some point, I need to level the crafters and gatheres, and possibly decide if I really want to go ham with the crafting leve achievements as well. It would be impressive, but it would be time consuming. I mean, I already want to stack the last combat job with the last rank 3 area of ShB's shared FATEs. That is going to be fun, especially since I am sort of wanting to save either Amh or Khol for last, and there is no telling how often I'll catch Khol's special FATE when other people are doing it.

Oh! I have all of the special FATEs done at least once now for achievements. I just need the Kholusia one two more times for the mount. I'll pass on the frog suit, as amusing as it is.

It's unlikely I'll be finished by New Years, but I can maybe aim for Patch 5.2. We shall see.
