The Daily Grind: What routine tasks do you frequently forget in MMOs?

Eye see.

If you never played it back in the day, Final Fantasy XI was often a game of chores. Did you remember to get food? Did you bring your prism powder and silent oil? Did you get your spells for your next couple level-ups? Of course you didn’t. Of course someone in your leveling party forgot some of these things, and what followed next was someone helping them because no matter what, someone forgot some of these.

No, you do not get to know which of these chores I routinely forgot to do.

The funny thing is, though, is the forgetters weren’t necessarily bad players. People would forget these things despite being good players who were otherwise reliable and fun and smart. We all forget to do certain routine tasks, and then days later we remember we forgot to water our in-game plants or turn in daily quests or whatever. So what routine task do you frequently forget in your MMOs of choice, no matter how trivial?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
