My Kingdom for a Um, Horse?

I hope Cat’s having a good time with her mount. She spend a lot of time saving up for it. I have not left WoW but I did change from a 6 month subscription to monthly and thought I’d see how things go. I’m afraid they will just do the “let’s just hunker down and see if things calm down and we can ignore it” method of dealing with their internal problems.

What I didn’t see coming is that every time I logged in I sat there staring at the screen either mad or sad. I couldn’t play the game. I think the employees need a union but then I always think that as I worked for one for years and actually, really believed in it.

But back to mounts. I was trying to think of places to go on my WoW vacation and I remembered I had tried Final Fantasy a few years back. Yike! I first registered in 2013, I didn’t think it was THAT far back. All I could remember was I liked it but got tired of getting hopelessly lost all the time.

Yeah, so, things haven’t changed much. I wanted a mount so bad. I read that you got the quest around level 20. Level 20, no quest. Level 21, 22, nope, 23, 24, 25, AAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHH! I consulted the encyclopedia of Google again. Ohhhhhhhh. Don’t ignore your storyline. I think I had a quest for it and it was too high a level for me at the time and I went on my merry way. Forgetting about it. Don’t do that if you want your mount around level 20.

So, ta dah! I am the proud owner of not one but two mounts now! Thanks to Belghast’s Tweet about an in-game event!

I had thought I read you didn’t need to do dungeons in Final Fantasy. Wow, not true if you want to do you story line. Eeeeuuuuuwwww. Not for me. I don’t want ugly spoiling my play. But I wanted to advance my story so I thought I’d give it ONE TRY.

I have now completed 5 dungeons with a group of strangers and the extent of chat uglyness was, gg ty. The only problem at all is that I assumed there was something in those treasure chests to roll on but only the fifth tank waited around long enough for people to click on it. THAT WAS THE ONLY NEGATIVE! Okay, I’m in.

I’m having fun but I’m still lost most of the time. And melding materia??? And even change to amount of things to buy at the market. I think I played WoW so long I didn’t remember having to learn stuff. Never mind, it’s good for me.

I will continue to check in on how things are going at Activision, well, until my husband comes up to see why I’m screaming obscenities.
