Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #36

I’ve struggled to come up with a relic glamour for Monk’s new Samsara from the Blades of Gunnhildr. While its colors are generally up my alley, with red, black, and gold all featuring heavily in my glamours over the years, Monk in particular lacks solid glamour options that cover all three in a way that […]

Mog Station Review: Peacock Attire

It seems we might be coming up on a summer of the Mog Station—after something of a Mog Station drought, we’ve now had three new sets added in the period of about a month. Last month saw the addition of the Mheg Deaca Attire and Ruby Carbuncle Attire and now, just a matter of week’s […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #43

I’ve been slowly working on getting Gunbreaker to 80 for ages now, almost exclusively through the occasional Leveling or 50/60/70 Roulette. Since Lynahra had the honor of taking the job through the Main Scenario, I hadn’t really wanted to take the job through all of the dungeons again on Alahra, and Roulettes were a pretty […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #9

Balmung completed the New Nest of the Firmament not too long ago, which opened up the next series of quests in the ongoing storyline (in addition to adding some absolutely beautiful new music for the area). Since I’ve been saving crafter leveling for the final line Beast Tribe Quests for this expansion, I’ve still got […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #34

Most of the time when I sit down to work out a new glamour, I like to settle on a body piece first, which I’d imagine is a fairly common practice. Body pieces are the main selling point of just about any look, so that shouldn’t be surprising, of course. But sometimes, that habit ends […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #41

Outside of expansion launches and relic binges, I’ve long played FFXIV pretty casually, doing a roulette or three a day and otherwise doing other things. I still like to idle on the game, though—I do a lot of chatting and picture taking even if I’m not playing heavily at any given period of time. With […]

Gear Set Gallery: Anamnesis Garb of Scouting

After more runs than I could possibly count, I have finally gotten the last piece of gear from Anamnesis Anyder that I needed, and that means it’s also time for the final dungeon set gallery for Patch 5.2, this one for Ninja. As with all of the sets from the latest dungeon, this one is […]

Mog Station Review: Ruby Carbuncle Attire

This week was a double whammy when it came to Mog Station updates. Along with the new Mheg Deaca Attire, a new set of Carbuncle Attire was added to the shop. With this new addition of Ruby Carbuncle Attire, there are versions corresponding to each of the three main Carbuncle colors in FFXIV: Emerald, Topaz, […]

Mog Station Review: Mheg Deaca Attire

If you’ve ever wanted to roleplay an alternate universe storyline in which FFXIV‘s Warrior of Light accepts the offer from Feo Ul to take up King Titania’s scepter, the Mog Station’s newest addition of the Mheg Deaca Attire may be just the thing for you. The main thrust of the glamour set is clearly patterned […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #17

Though I couldn’t tell you why, I’ve always loved tonfa as a weapon for martial artists in games (with a particular favorite tonfa user being Talim from Soul Calibur), so I was quite stoked to pick up Monk’s new relic tonfa for Shadowbringers. Though I didn’t get them straight away (Dark Knight and Ninja naturally […]
