Last night, I finished up leveling Miner to 80 on my RP alt, which officially checked off my final goal for him for this month. I also earned him the Soul of the Harvest title. As I posted this weekend, I just earned this title on my main when I blew through leveling Fisher. All in all, I took leveling my gatherers pretty casually for this expansion, but it felt a lot faster than Stormblood was. I did daily Grand Company turn-ins, kept up with my gathering turn-ins for the Crystarium, and did a few leves. But one thing some people might overlook are the weekly Scrip turn-ins. These give a pretty large chunk of experience – about two levels each week – especially if you manage to get one with a bonus.

I am happy to announce that the Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood story summary is now complete and available here on the Land of Odd. Just like with the other story summaries, it’s broken up into each patch starting with 4.0 and going through 4.5 with links at the top of the page so you can skip right to the section you want to read. I just want to thank you all for being patient with me while I completed this. I know some people wanted it ready before Shadowbringers launched and I knew I didn’t have the time to write all this up and grind to have a high enough iLevel to do the Grimlyt Dark dungeon before the expansion released, so again I appreciate all of your patience with me. I once again am going to try to not fall behind as much in Shadowbringers. Cross your fingers! You can find the story summary HERE or in the menu at the top of the site.

When it comes to narrative content in MMORPG games, story-telling is almost seen as secondary to raiding, PvP and other in-game activities that players consider more important. There’s not much to dispute there, but story is in many ways just as important for those looking for a well rounded MMORPG experience. Some games get it right when it comes to story. NPC characters, world-building and the reason for caring about the game world you’re in are difficult things to get right, especially for MMO audiences around the globe. And that’s why for example, in Eastern MMOs it isn’t as prevalent or even as good as some from the west. It all comes down to demographics.
