I admire the bloggers who post monthly gaming goals, and find them fun to read. MJ of MassivelyOP just posted a set of gaming goals for her EQ2 playtime for 2017. Impressive! It really shows the depth of the game that she can have so many interesting and deep goals for just that single game.
2017 Game Goals
World Of Warcraft
Get my Dungeon Game back up to snuff
Seriously look at equipping my characters with the best of everything I can make for them to give them a better chance of survival if they're in a currently "off class" (one which feels nerfed to smithereens).
Continue my entertaining rotation of all characters on two different servers.
Work on as many general Achievements as I can manage, because I haven't many for as long as I've been playing. It just hasn't been a goal.
Get all characters to max, crafters first. I have been playing this game the most, and the more I play the more I love it, as I always did.
Join the Rebellion with at least one character. Time to stand and fight.
Elder Scrolls Online
I really need to figure out how to fight effectively with at least one character. I think I'm doing well then blammo.
Get at least the starter house so my characters have a safe place to snooze and call home. The freebie one will do.
I think what has really held me back here is that I haven't taken the time to learn the crafting system, oddly enough. I think that learning it would give me just that bit of an edge. I don't mind the combat at all, but of course I could do better at it.
My beloved Rift! I just stopped playing once I boosted my Cleric. So silly, I chose a character whose combat was the most challenging for me, then raised her above the level of any area I am familiar with in the game, and I feel like I should play her, but I don't wanna. Tsk. Best to switch back to the Mage who is almost level 50.
Time to learn this game. Had some trouble with log ins and then supreme lag the last time I logged in, trying to get my boosted character the level down thingie. (I should have another cup of coffee, can't remember what the "down boost" is called).
Lord of the Rings Online
I really need to move my Loremaster along into Moria. It is my favorite area of the game. I think this is the game where I would benefit most from joining a guild and getting help with questions and getting grouping opportunities. So, that's what I'll do. I am pretty picky about guilds though, and won't wear a guild name over my head that I don't like, and I need people to be super nice and helpful to players of all levels. Not so easy to find as you might think.
With a whole year to work on these, I should be good to go, right?
