Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Attire of Healing

For much of FFXIV‘s history, sets for casters and healers have followed a predictable pattern, sharing models more often than not and colors almost set in stone: dark (usually black) for casters and some shade of white for healers. Often, this is even the case when a full gear cycle a dark theme (such as […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Striking

It’d be charitable to describe much of the Nabaath gear as fashionable, but I think the Nabaath Garb of Striking takes the award for least fashionable among them. Cobbled together from a mix of crafting gear (including a leather apron) and crafted tank gear from Stormblood, this set from Malikah’s Well lacks some of the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Maiming

This series of gear set galleries for the initial is finally winding down. After today’s set, the Maiming gear from The Qitana Ravel, there will be just five more sets to go. Once that’s done, it’ll be back to business as usual here on Fashion Ninjutsu (with far more glamours than I’ve been posting the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Attire of Casting

As with most of the initial dungeon sets in Shadowbringers, the Voeburtite set from Dohn Mheg for casters shares models with the corresponding healing set. The usual pattern holds here, with the casting set taking on a darker color palette than its healing counterpart, and in this case, I’d say that the darker colors largely […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Garb of Striking

I’ve said much of what needs to be said about the Forgiven’s Striking gear already, since it shares models with the Scouting gear that’s also from Mt. Gulg, a set that I covered a few rounds through the dungeons ago. Like that set, this one offers up some light, dyeable armor of the kind that’s […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Attire of Casting

The refrain should be familiar by now: the sets from Malikah’s Well largely repurpose old crafting and gathering sets as hastily donned battle gear, and the Casting set from the dungeon is no exception. Like the companion healing set, this one is based on the mid-tier Ala Mhigan crafting set from Stormblood, but with one […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dark Knight #3

As will come as no surprise, switching over to a tank main for Shadowbringers has given me all sorts of trouble with glamours. Alahra has only rarely looked right in heavier armor to me, and my struggles with creating armored tank glamours are well documented across the site. Most of the time, that means my […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Attire of Healing

Dropping from The Qitana Ravel, the Ravel Keeper’s Attire of Healing largely shares models with the similar Casting gear from the same dungeon. As is usual between the two normally paired Disciple of Magic sets, this one has a lighter color scheme than the other, favoring more earthy tones. Of course, the range of colors […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #4

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for me in FFXIV. As the last major task to round out my initial run of gear set galleries for Shadowbringers, I’ve been working pretty steadily on Dragoon. As far back as A Realm Reborn, I’ve nearly always leveled Dragoon close to last (if not last) during each […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Armor of Maiming

For the most part, the Voeburtite Armor of Maiming shares models with the Fending and Aiming sets from Dohn Mheg (the level 73 dungeon of Shadowbringers). Little details, like the feather in the circlet or the single shoulder plate (as opposed to two or none), set it apart from the others, but like both of […]
