Played Runes of Magic a little bit this weekend. Made a couple new characters and goofed around a bit with Blindrage. RoM has become a very VERY aloof endeavor for lack of goals. Its no fault of the game itself. I just have not played in so long, I don’t even remember what my goals were there.. lol. I should look things up to remind me of what I was working towards (and if they even seem worth it anymore). I have to have goals or else I don’t do much.. lol. Well goals, or friends that I actively talk to. Sadly I’ve never quite felt the same level of immersion in RoM. I feel like I’m sitting at the computer playing a game, instead of having an experience. But… it might just be me. It was fun playing, however in all honesty, I find myself thinking about FFXIV the whole time.. lol! I’m unfaithful to Runes of Magic I suppose.. hehe All I can say is sorry, but in my defense I loved final fantasy first…. ^^
Seriously, was sitting there thinking about how I wish I was playing FFXIV, getting a start on the crafting classes… kind of wishing for that side purpose to propel me.. hehe. In FFXIV, I imagine myself trying to dabble in multiple venues to help perpetuate a kind of self-sufficiency to some extent. (I wonder if there is a psychoanalysis that could be done there… .. hehe.. probably, but I’m too tired to think about it right now. I’m just rambling really.. sorry.. lol)
I’ve not really been an adept or “successful” crafter in any game I’ve played, but I’ have experienced small feverish bouts. In FFXI, I was midground in the area of cooking and alchemy, but not capped out by any means. I was always a poor taru and it definitely hindered progress. I’m hoping it will be less time consuming and financially exhausting to acquire the items for crafting in FFXIV. I’m really praying (I mean it.. praying!) that they don’t have things break as often (or dare I dream, not at all). I’d really like to get somewhere with it this time around. I’m hoping that since its an actual class, that it might not be so bad, but we’ll see.
I’m also just plain excited about getting the chance to work on a single character’s development again. I don’t really enjoy re-doing quests, and I don’t like having to re-create another character, and start from scratch just to try out a different job/class.
