July 2020 Gaming Goals

I like reading gaming goals so I should write some.  I used to dislike doing them because at month’s end there’s a Cone Of Shame situation considering all that didn’t get done.  Now, I say, so what?  It’s better than nothing which is what I have been doing.

Lord of the Rings Online

I’m back somewhat playing my Hunter in Mirkwood.  I had a few moments where I thought I’d finished the area and could go somewhere less dark and dank. No.  I think I crawled from the Mirk Eves to the actual Mirkwood.  It was so dark I had to go into my settings to lighten it up so I could see.  It is awfully pixelated too.   Still, as long as I can ignore my Legendary Weapon whining for an update, I’m enjoying the game.  Gotta love those 20,000 goblin camps, right?  My goal is to move her along, someday leaving Mirkwood.


World of Warcraft

I’m power leveling characters left and right this week thanks to the xp boost and back to back Timewalking in the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King Dungeons.   A hunter on one of my side servers lead the charge to 120, and it’s been a blast just dungeoning away.  I even got my BWR Priest to 120!  She only needed two dungeons worth of xp to get 120.  Luck of the dice, she got Utgarde Pinnacle and the Pit of Sauron.

Goal wise I’d like to try to get my Warrior, DK, Monk and Shaman on BWR to 120, a Paladin on Proudmoore and another Hunter on Earthen Ring to 120 then I’ll be pretty happy.


Elder Scrolls Online

I’ve been just logging in for the dailies for awhile, and not even accomplishing that.  April and May were lost months for me across the board.  Getting them this time!

My Nord Warden has begun the Greymoor quest chain, though I haven’t purchased the expansion yet, very unlike me not to have done so.  I’d like to finish the initial quest then, purchase Greymoor and off we go.


Steam Sale

Tidy up my Steam Sale list and try out all the games.  Last sale I was being good and just looked at a few I meant to play.  How did that work out?   Nah! Just get in there and take a look.  So far I have purchased:

Bioshock Remastered

Bioshock 2 Remastered

Gabriel Knight 2 The Beast Within

Mass Effect Andromeda

Metro Exodus

Outer Wilds

Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition


Lamplight City


Night in the Woods

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

Goal: Play a bit of each and write something about them.  It’s all post fodder, folks.


Happy July!


July Gaming Goals

World of Warcraft

Leveling, as always.

Explore Nazjatar and Mechagon.

Oops, work on Gear Levels.

Be lively in my new guilds.

Elder Scrolls Online

Decorate my homes.

Leveling as always.

Work a bit harder on crafting, which is interesting but grindy.

Drag myself into Discord for the new guild. What is it with Discord. I will say, doh they could have named it something more convivial.

Write more this month. Working on it. So, can’t use up a month’s worth of thought on this weasel post.
