I do the exact same stupid trick every time there’s a patch for Final Fantasy XIV. I play the heck out of it in the morning before leaving the house to take care of errands and such, then I agonize over getting everything done and missing a weekly reset… and then by the evening I’ve cleared everything. You would think I’d learn by this point, but no, once another patch shows up I’m making the exact same stupid mistakes.
In the long run, this works out all right for me, but it’s still kind of silly. But some of my friends are smarter than I am and pace themselves far better, so by the time they’re wrapping up patch content it’s been, like, at least a week. But what about you, dear readers? How fast do you consume patch content in MMOs? Do you immediately explore new quests, levels, and what-have-you, or do you pace yourself? Or, perhaps, are you behind the curve and confident that it shan’t matter too much either way?
