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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #39

With my initial interest in Bojza Southern Front having cratered following my personal clash with the design goals at its core and my primary relic weapons complete for the time being, gameplay’s been taking a back seat for me in the game once again. Instead, I’ve mostly been leaning hard into roleplaying to pass much […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #10

So far, I’ve managed to collect every body piece from Puppets’ Bunker except for the Striking body, which is the one I wanted most after the Fending coat. While I’ve not done any serious farming since the initial binge that got me the one I needed for Dark Knight, I’ve been running the raid 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 […]

FFXIV Online Shop Review: Scion Prodigy’s Suit

Every now and then, we get surprise additions to the Online Shop, and this recent update for this year’s special Make It Rain/All Saints’ Wake mash-up included one of those: the Scion Prodigy’s Suit, which amounts to a costume version of the gently gender-morphed outfit both Alphinaud and Alisaie wore in A Realm Reborn. While […]

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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #10

So far, my Patch 5.35 hasn’t really gone like I expected it would at all! By now, I imagined I’d have done a ton of Bozjan Southern Front, but as of writing I’ve actually only managed to get one lockout in! Instead, I’ve been busying myself capping out new relics outside of the exploration zone […]

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 Spotlight: Healers #47

I’ve been playing Scholar a lot recently, as I’m down to needing just two more pieces of Shadowless gear from Heroes’ Gauntlet—one for healers and one for ranged DPS. At that point I’ve found it better to run via the Duty Finder rather than with Trusts for more chances at seeing the drops I need, […]
