    I mean, that's literally what I was complaining about a few days ago and your method is basically the solution people gave me. I stress out too much about streaks and I wish I were able to let stuff slide like that instead of, like, coming up with complex schemes like staying up until 5:50 AM just to brush my teeth again and say it was both "within the day" and "during the morning" so I could tick off my "brush my teeth in the morning" daily.

    You're okay.

    theambernerd dead to all sense of shame

    I feel like i want to join the party cause my party's ded but i also tend to be a 'fuck it, i forgot all my dailies, better just take a health potion and call it good' person, which tends to drag parties down c|

    crossposting from my vent thread, because I really don't know how people get parties. is it worthwhile? I'm assuming that the guild resource for finding parties is skewed towards new players, which wouldn't be a good fit since I'm level 87 (though eventually I'll probably do the reset to level 1 again after I hit 100, I've done that before). also I don't have any gems, isn't that important if you're in a party? I've literally had an account for years and don't know how half of it works.

    also, if you're in a party, can you see other members' tasks or their stats? probably not, but I'd like to know for sure
  6. Not their tasks but you can see their health. It helps healers and shit.

    I'm in @Vacuum Energy 's party, and from what I gather it's basically "go on quests and fight bosses as an extra incentive to complete your dailies" I'm sure if you ask in the Kintsugi guild someone will offer.

    yeah, but you can quest by yourself (which I do, it's slow as balls). what's the benefit of other people, aside from quests going faster?

    ...that sounds massively misanthropic and cranky, huh. also, I don't have many quests due to lack of gems, so I don't know how motivating that is. I've earned and finished the free quests multiple times, so they're ehh

    asynch allegedly legendary

    parties get to help each other out with spells/abilities for buffs and healing, so it's shared-benefit as well as shared-damage. for example, i'm a mage and therefore take a lot of damage from bosses, but i have a spell which gives my party mana, which my sister can then use to heal us.

    Personally my incentive is to not let my party down. And it also makes it a bit funner? Like, knowing "hey, we're doing this together".

    my personal incentive for being in a party is so i can stock up on all the seasonal spells and then turn my team mates into snowmen all summer :3c

    ^^^ This. I'm a healer, so I feel I have a duty to sign in and heal people to protect them. And I want to avoid leaving things unchecked and thus damage them. I make sure to keep my dailies to ones I'm sure I can usually do, and put most of my more challenging things into habits or to-dos. Focua on the happiness motivation.

    Secret Squirrel certainly something

    I am thinking of trying to start using Habitica again. I am posting about it as a way to encourage myself to actually do it. XD

    So question to anyone who's already "found" all the equipment in the enchanted armoire: do you keep the armoire and still get food and experience from it after you've successfully gotten all of the equipment? I have about 5 left and am curious what will happen when I find all the equipment.

    Hopefully I'm understanding your question right, but the armoire stays in the sidebar, regardless of whether it has equipment in it or not. But it does refill occasionally with new equipment, so it's not a one-time thing.

  16. Iiiii think so? It's been a while... Also they do keep adding pieces so even when you're done it becomes equipment-giving again in a couple months.

    @idiomie yes, you can still get food and xp from the armoire, and in the first week of every month, there will be a new item set that you can get out of it before you are back to just food and xp.

    does it count as necroing if it's stickied?

    anyway. I'm probably going to throw this question at the mental illness guild as well, maybe, but does anyone have advice/thoughts on cutting down one's task/daily list? mine is starting to overwhelm me (it's got a lot of old tasks), but deleting them feels like I've been set adrift, for lack of better wording. general guilt + bad feels, "deleting it means I'll never do it/have given up", "what if I forget about it?", etc.

    also I feel like I should add more basic tasks (eating, mostly x_x) to my dailies, but it already feels so like so many things to do and click?

    ....and being a warrior suuuuuuuucks. honestly it makes doing tasks less rewarding? I miss being a rogue but I've got so many levels to go before I can change classes again
  20. I use dailies for essentials. Go to class, draw anything at all no matter how good it is, shower, laundry, meds. If I'm spooned out I'll do like, part of one and then check it off anyway cause I tried but spppoooons. Anything else I wanna or even need to do goes in habits or ToDos. Habits include arriving on time, painting nails, checking to see if succulents need to be watered, any unspecified housework, & not drinking coffee. ToDos has all my schoolwork, any extra paperwork I gotta do, art & writing projects and home improvement stuff like hanging paintings & shit. Basically, Dailies are only for "This will make tomorrow uncomfortable if you don't do." So I gotta remember to go places, keep mood up & avoid withdrawl symptoms, get un-stinky. Anytbing else is meh.

    That's how I do it at least.
