Syp’s gaming goals for February 2021

January 2021 in review

  • This ended up being a really weird and surprising month for me in gaming, both in good and disappointing ways. I had originally planned on playing mostly retail World of Warcraft with some Warhammer Online on the side, but my interest in the weekly WoW routine flagged and I only logged into WAR a couple of times.
  • I didn’t even put as much time into CRPGs, like Cyberpunk 2077 or Pillars of Eternity 2, that I expected to.
  • I had a mini-burnout in the middle of the month and stepped away from gaming for a few days to refocus and recover.
  • What helped me pull out was to restructure the month under the theme of “fresh start.” In particular, I started new WoW Classic (Warlock) and Lord of the Rings Online (Minstrel) characters to go through these games anew. That ended up being a whole lot of fun and got me out of my stale routine.
  • I upgraded my graphics card to a Ti 1080 due to my old one being… old.
  • I did have several fun play sessions in Torchlight II for a retro gaming series, so there was that.

February 2021’s gaming goals

  • Since I’m having fun in this new groove, I’m going to keep going for it. In WoW Classic, I would like to get my Warlock to 40 by the end of the month with the ultimate goal of capping her at 60 for a future Burning Crusade transfer.
  • I’ll keep on investing some time into World of Warcraft, probably to finish up my Death Knight’s covenant campaign and then maybe working on getting a different character to 60. But I’m definitely throttling back here. I may just do the bare minimum weeklies for a while.
  • In Lord of the Rings Online, heck, I’d be happy if I got all three of the newbie zones completely done — deeds and all — and maybe Lone-lands too. Yeah, Lone-lands finished by the end of February. That’s a good goal.
  • I’m heading back into Elder Scrolls Online with the goal of finishing up Western Skyrim — really excited to be back!
  • For retro gaming, I’ll stick with Torchlight II for the time being.

  1. What about DDO’s Fables of the Feywild? I’ve held off on writing my own set of articles on the expansion as the Feywild’s single Legendary raid won’t go live until the end of this month, or later.
