It’s time to order the Pre-Order for the Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker Expansion. The expansion is coming in November and whichever pre-order you purchase you can get some good items to help with leveling. As always, the process or ordering in the Square-Enix Store is confusing. Unlike other games, for some unknown reason, purchasing games and upgrades is very confusing.
For me, the important part of the Pre-Order is the Leveling Earring. Minions are nice, but not that important to me. This earring adds 30% XP for all content up to level 80 and is account wide. You’ll get this from the Delivery Moogle for all your characters.
For a while now I’ve been working on the Amaro Mount in FFXIV. As a reminder, to get this mount, you need to get all of your Fighting jobs, except BLUe Mage, up to level 80. So it takes a while.
Here is my current progress:
I’m currently spamming Heaven on High after getting all the jobs to at least 61 in Palace of the Dead. It takes about 4 to 5 runs of HoH to get a level. Once I reach 70, and equip Scaevan Armor, I move on to another job. Also once per day, I do an MSQ Roulette. At lower levels, doing dungeons was a win for experience, but at this level, dungeon queues are too long and XP too low to make doing dungeons, except the MSQ Roulette, to be worth the trouble. To avoid over running the Armory storage, I’m keeping all the jobs at about the same level. Otherwise the Armory space would be gone pretty quickly.
I’m not sure how to level 70-80 most efficiently. I’ll probably try Trusts and may look into Eureka. I have figured out where to buy level 76 and 78 armor from merchants, so gear won’t be a problem I hope.
Guild Wars 2 or World of Warcraft share mounts and mastery progress on mounts across the entire account. However, Alts in FFXIV are completely separate silos. So to get this mount on all my characters would be a horrific grind. But I have nice mounts for all my characters, esp the Falcons in various colors, from holiday events over the past couple of years.
