I haven't done any sort of event, other than ~3 Chigre pops in about four months now. It's mostly just been me soloing Magian Trials and getting my feet wet in Abyssea. It's all easy stuff, so I'll include info on how to go about it yourself (in a hopefully easier to understand than Wiki-scouring sort of way).
Since the update, it's been mostly Abyssea. I spammed the hell out of the package delivery quest in Aby-Vunkerl to get Scholar and Summoner feet.
The quest is easy enough, but there's some aggro on the way.
Here's the basic path, it's pretty straightforward.
It can take a stupidly long amount of time, but spam it enough and you'll get 8/8 of your desired seals, eventually.
After that disappointment, I decided to go and actually explore an older Abyssea zone and cap fame there. Namely, Aby-La Theine. The easiest way to do that is to trade about 50 Willow Fishing rods to one of the Lu Shang's brothers after talking to his sibling and getting a broken one. You can either fix that with a Light crystsal (and sufficient Woodworking skill) or just buy a bunch from Luisane outside Tamila's Sundries in S.Sandy.
Here's the path if you haven't done it before.
After repeating this 50 times, talk to Glenne (she's by the brother you've been trading Fishing Rods to) to flag an Abyssite quest. Find her Aveleleoneloneoneliene--husband--who's wandering around on the road somewhere by where the crag is supposed to be. And that's pretty much all I found to do in Aby-La Theine, really.
After this, I decided to go and try to get some Aby-Miseraux fame. Can you smell what Evilpaul is cookin'?!
So that's what I've been up to. It's easy solo stuff that anyone can do (bring RR for some of it), so hopefully it'll inspire other people to try and get some easy AF3+1 pants/feet. (Any ideas on getting the base feet pieces? Please leave a comment; I'm interested.)
My next project is to actually level my jobs to 85, finish the few Magian Weapon trials I've got open, and work on getting Aby-Attowha fame so I can get a MNK head piece.
