Sunday 11th April 2021
Today was a No Writing Day, but this was mostly by design. It was Snivy Community Day in Pokemon Go and these community day events always seem to swallow my day.
I’m not really doing a lot of Pokemon Go lately. I’m dipping in and out of it. I’m getting the event research and collections complete but that’s about it. I do miss being able to go to the big shopping mall on community days where we all used to meet up.
However, Covid has kinda put Pokemon Go in the background. I’m also not happy with some of the decisions Niantic has taken. It often feels like they’ve forgotten there’s a pandemic on. My support bubble pointed out that even one of the top Pokemon Go Youtuber was calling out their egg system as a scam in a video the other day.
So today was really about collecting a few new shinies and evolving Pokemon I had saved up. I make it a policy not to evolve most Pokemon. If I get one with good IVs, I’ll keep it. That way when there’s a community day or special event I can evolve to get the special move – which is normally the best it can get.
I had a 98% IV saved up so that got evolved, but I never got many good ones from the event itself.
I was playing as I was doing some more Warcraft. I need to go back and check because I’m doubting myself and thinking I must have got mixed up on dates and it’s been two weeks instead of one, but I appear to have leveled 4 alts to 60 this week. I know, I can’t believe it.
I’m really enjoying this big push, especially as those I leveled included my priest and Shaman which are my least favourite classes to play. I’ve also taken a bit of time to get a lot of the 60s set up with their covenant. That means they should now get the weekly quests to rescue souls and farm anima. I don’t plan to go crazy over this but it does allow me to start getting the renown up on all the alts.
Whilst the number of alts leveled to 60 has gone up, the number remaining still feels unchanged. I still feel like I have a mountain of alts to level. Although if I could continue at this rate I would have them all done in 2 weeks.
We had our raid tonight where we are onto the final heroic boss, and then to unwind before bed I stuck on a new audiobook (The Three Muskateers) and progressed leveling another.
So long as I continue the writing progress (I hope it to be less spiky during the week) I’m quite content being in my little social bubble, getting words done and leveling alts. I get my first Covid jab this week so it would be great if I could have a complete novel by the time I’m all vaccinated up. Not sure what I will do then. Probably write more and level a few more characters.
