April is coming to a close and May is only a couple days away so it’s time once again to take a look at my goals from this past month and see how I did. Overall I made little headway in any game other than Tree of Savior, however I spent about two weeks trying four or five new MMOs and that proved to be a refreshing and productive change of pace. Between shaking things up a bit in terms of game selection and writing one post on feeling restless with my current choices and another on whether or not I should try a weekly, multi-gaming schedule I have a pretty solid idea of how I’m going to approach May. But I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s look at what April was like first.
The Secret World saw very little playtime this month, no more than five or six hours in total which means I did not finish any of the goals that I had set. I was able to complete Issue 9 and begin Issue 10 so that was at least something. However with Tree of Savior I was very productive. While I did not write a beginner’s guide (I don’t feel I know the game well enough for that just yet) I did manage to reach 20 with each class and after choosing to focus on the Cleric, I leveled well past 50 and am currently sitting just a few levels over 100.
As for single player games, I don’t think I played any of them this month. Instead I spent my time trying TERA, Wakfu, Path of Exile, Firefall, and Skyforge. And although I don’t think I will be continuing with any of them for right now, I did find a few worth revisiting, but more on this when I set my goals for May. While very little was accomplished from my list, I had a lot of fun focusing on Tree of Savior and playing a slew of new games I’ve never tried before. I don’t know what it is about Tree of Savior in particular that has been so compelling for me, but I’ve enjoyed it all the same and will likely continue to in the coming weeks. So how did everyone else do this month, did you manage to accomplish what you wanted? What plans do you have in mind for May?

Tree of Savior
Level all classes to 20 Select one class to focus on; level to 50Cleric, and I actually reached 100 and beyond! Continue researching the leveling process and “end game” activitiesThis could still use more work, but I did find out a lot more about leveling.
- Write a beginner’s guide to leveling in ToS before the F2P launch I don’t think I’ll be doing this now, as there are plenty out there already and I have another project in mind for ToS.
