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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #45

I’ve been working on White Mage off and on, slowly but surely inching it up toward level 80 two or three dungeon runs at a time, once a week or so. It’s been somewhat of a slow process, but one I need to take slowly. I’ve never been especially great at White Mage (for most […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #42

It didn’t take long after finishing the write-up for my Honeshirazu glamour that I found the inspiration I needed to also do one for Woeborn. I’d been struggling to find a central body piece to work around that matched the weapon because, given Woeborn’s color scheme, it’s more or less a perfect fit for Lynxliege/Lynxfang […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #40

Though I’ve finished a few initial stages of the new Blades of Gunnhildr (for Dark Knight, Ninja, and Monk so far), I’ve not yet put a ton of time into creating glamours based around the new weapons just yet. I’ve gotten back into console games in a big way over the last year, and the […]

First Impressions: Blades of Gunnhildr

The long-awaited beginning of the Shadowbringers “relic” quest is now finally here in the form of the Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr quest line (which has been referred to in a few different ways by the developers—I’m going with Blades of Gunnhildr just to settle on one). Picking up in terms of story from […]
