Gear Set Gallery: Aurum Attire of Magic

One thing I’ve always wished the dev team would do after each expansion is to go back and change all the gear from the previous expansion from class/job specific to Disciple of War/Disciple of Magic gear, as appropriate. This would do so much for glamour possibilities (and personally make my life so much easier since […]

Gear Set Gallery: Aurum Attire of Resilience

It’s been a pretty busy month in the world of FFXIV, with the launch of a new relic stage and a surprise addition to the Online Shop meaning I’m actually a little behind on various things I’ve been meaning to post for awhile! Among those are a few glamours that I’m putting finalizing touches on […]

First Impressions: Bozjan Southern Front / Blades of Gunnhildr Chapter Two

It’s been a long time coming, pushed back (understandably) by the global pandemic, but the first proper instance chapter of the Blades of Gunnhildr has finally arrived, added recently alongside Patch 5.35. Following on narratively from the story-rich first chapter, this one continues on with the strong focus on both characters and narrative Yasumi Matsuno […]

Gear Set Gallery: Shadowless Attire of Aiming

Thanks to a startling bout of luck that had both final pieces I needed to complete the Aiming and Healing sets from Heroes’ Gauntlet, I can wrap up this cycle of galleries today! All in all, I had much better luck with Shadowless sets than I did with the Anamnesis ones in 5.2, but I […]

Gear Set Gallery: Shadowless Attire of Healing

After my last set gallery for the Shadowless Casting set, it seemed my luck had begun to run out. I was down to just two specific pieces to finish off both the Aiming and Healing sets, and given the odds of either one dropping in a given run, I imagined it’d be quite some time […]

Glamour Spotlights: Casters #44

I’ve been carefully eyeing the price of the new Hraesvelgr Attire added with Patch 5.31’s update to Restoration of the Holy See, while also being mindful of the fact that I want a comfortable amount of gil stowed for the upcoming addition of new housing plots. A week or so ago, the price of the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Shadowless Attire of Casting

I’m closing in on the final stage of completing the Shadowless Attire sets from The Heroes’ Gauntlet, having completed the full set for five of FFXIV‘s seven armor classes. That unfortunately means that, due to the finnicky nature of the great and powerful random number generator, the set galleries for this dungeon are likely to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #22

In terms of Artifact Armor, Shadowbringers has been one of my favorite of FFXIV‘s expansions thus far, featuring sets I absolutely love for Monk and Ninja (among others), and some of my favorite Relic weapons in the whole game (and I’m greatly disappointed it seems like we’re abandoning this expansion’s lovely weapons for the Blades […]

Gear Set Gallery: Shadowless Attire of Striking

I’m now closing in on the end of my Heroes’ Gauntlet grind for the Shadowless sets, with just two sets to complete remaining (with just one piece each remaining for the Aiming and Healing sets). Casting is waiting in the wings (and will probably go up next week!), and this last week I finally managed […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #21

Despite the fact that I’ve been picking at Bard for quite some time now (it’s 79!), I’ve not actually touched the Choral Chapeau since sometime back in February. Instead I’d largely been using my “canon” ARR glamour while I did my leveling (and I’ll probably be picking that up again soon once we actually have […]
