Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #28

In my continued experiments with my two favorite pieces from the 2B glamour set, I’ve largely been focused on black. Alahra tends to look best in darker colors (and black especially), which can sometimes leave me in a bit of a glamour rut if I’m not careful. So, as I started thinking about other things […]

Mog Station Review: Alma's Attire

In a surprise maintenance the night of Thanksgiving in the United States, the Mog Station received an update both to activate a sale on level boost potions and add a new glamour set: Alma’s Attire, which is what the FFXIV version of the Ivalice character wore in Stormblood‘s Return to Ivalice Alliance Raid series. Though […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #36

Ever since I put together my first attempt at a glamour with the YorHA body for Ninja from the Copied Factory, I’ve been running the raid far more than I normally would to pick up the YorHA leg piece to go with the top. I’ve been after a solid pair of dyeable shorts for Ninja […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #40

Much like my level 80 healer, I’ve not touched either Red Mage or Summoner much at all since getting the two of them to 80, which has meant a lack of a proper level cap glamour for my casting gear for much of the expansion so far. My caster-swap of my Voeburtite healing glamour has […]

For this week’s gear set gallery, we’ll be looking at another of the Warg sets from Patch 5.1’s The Grand Cosmos. Like all of the sets from the new dungeon, this one—the Striking set for Monk and Samurai—comes with a strong wolf motif. This one features a prominent bushy tail attached to the body piece, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #39

After playing FFXIV for over six years now, with my subscription having never lapsed in that time, it’s a little hard to fathom that I very nearly quit during the early days of Patch 2.0, A Realm Reborn, never to return. One of the things that had kept me from checking out the original FFXIV […]

Glamour Spotlight: Alchemist #2

Last but certainly not least of my three crafting specialists is Alchemist. ALC has always been Alahra’s crafter “main,” but it’s also one of the ones I use the least, since I find crafting consumables to be too tedious when it comes to making gil. Even so, I’ve largely kept it as a specialist for […]

Gear Set Gallery: No.2 Type B Materiel

Since the release of NieR: Automata over two years ago, there’s been clamor for a crossover with FFXIV, particularly for an excuse to include glamour versions of the various YorHA uniforms present in the game. Now, with the first installment of the new Alliance raid series for Shadowbringers, YorHA: Dark Apocalypse, we’ve finally gotten our […]

Glamour Spotlight: Goldsmith #1

It feels like ages ago now, but in the pre-5.1 world, I was at one point planning to post my specialist glamours for Alchemist, Goldsmith, and Weaver. I got around to one of them before I found myself without internet for a few days, and once I was back online, I wanted to focus on […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Casting

Patch 5.1’s new dungeon brings with it the first level 80 dungeon set of Shadowbringers, since the original three instead dropped accessories to accompany the expansions new Artifact Armor sets. Gathered only from The Grand Cosmos, the new Warg sets are full of wolf motifs, fur, and leather—making for a strange contrast with the stately […]
