I got distracted by relic weapons again, and finished my second anima weapon! The first one as a dragoon took quite awhile, so I'm happy to say that the white mage weapon went very smoothly, since it was easier to stockpile things in advance. Here's a shot of me with the second to last stage, which I adore. I like the blue better than the yellow of the final stage, so I'll go with this for awhile.
Since relics are fun and there's not much else I'd rather spend poetics on, I'll probably keep going and get a few more. Probably for anima weapons I'll do paladin, scholar, then summoner. As a bard, I think I'd rather do the zodiac weapon, which will be an adventure. I've heard that's even more of a grind than the anima weapons, so we'll see how it goes!
In other news, I finally started Stormblood and made it to Kugane! Some exciting stuff is happening, so I definitely want to keep going. If I really focus, I might be able to catch up before Endwalker. Maybe. There's just so much to do! And for me, I enjoy taking my time and doing it all along the way.
Thank you all for being a part of this adventure with me! I'm having a blast.
