Rank 900 is an arbitrary milestone in PAD — the only real reward being the extra team slot — but it’s still important to me as an indicator of how much I’ve played. As someone that took a somewhat irrational pride in never grinding solely for rank, it’s somewhat fitting that I got the last rank in the dungeon best known for rank grinding in SUDR (although I do need the skill ups from there :^). It’s also fitting that it was done via co-op, something I was reluctant to embrace initially. However, I wanted to quickly hit 900 so I could put it behind me and give some things non-PAD to have a higher priority in my life, at least in the short term.
How this will affect my blogging, I’m not sure. I’m sure you’ve noticed that the post rate has gone down as of late, but most of that was due to the rank 900 grind. I theoretically have more time to write now as I want to lower my PAD play time, but I’m not sure what form that will take, if any. I’ve been thinking about it a lot the past couple of days, but I haven’t been able to reach an answer. I do have a few ideas for new post series, though.
