I know people in Final Fantasy XIV who have already finished getting all of their Skysteel Tools fully upgraded. This is, in and of itself, not shocking; getting a Skysteel Tool finished is not tremendously difficult, merely time-consuming, since you have a whole lot of crafting and gathering to do. But it does mean that they now have these tools fully upgraded… in preparation for a next step that will not be here for more than two months from now. Perhaps a bit premature, that.
Not that I can actually blame them or anything. When you see a goal that needs to be accomplished, you want to get it cleared, even if objectively you know you’ve got more time to do it. But pacing things out so that you’re not driving yourself crazy with clearing content is also kind of important. So how good are you at spacing out your MMO content consumption? Do you try to let new content take you a reasonable amount of time, or do you tend to rush through what you want to get done and then head off to do other things for a long while?
