Bard Glamour Spotlights Machinist Ranged DPS

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS

I don’t really play Bard or Machinist anymore (I was one of the many casualties in the Gauss Barrel/Wanderer’s Minuet war), so I haven’t seriously thought about glamour for either one of them in a long time. One thing that’s always tickled my fancy in a theoretical sense is a sort of “gun bunny” glamour, though, using bits of the Chief Bunny/Bunny sets from the Gold Saucer.

Since I almost never play either one, I felt like I had more freedom to do something that I wouldn’t usually do (I like my looks to generally be at least mostly “practical”), and I spent awhile fiddling with the Chief Bunny Bustier and the Chief Bunny Crown. In the end, the only thing from that set that survived the culling process was the Crown. So, I the “gun bunny” theme is a bit light here, but I guess all you really need is the ears anyway, right?

Glamour Components
Head: Bunny Chief Crown (Jet Black Dye) | Body: Miqo’te Separates (Jet Black Dye) | Hands: Replica Allagan Gauntlets of Aiming (Jet Black Dye) | Legs: Miqo’te Loincloth (Jet Black Dye) | Feet: Bogatyr’s Thighboots of Ranging | Neck: Dodore Choker

This marks the first time I’ve actually made use of the ability to dye the racial starting gear for an actual glamour. I went back and forth between Metallic Silver and Jet Black for both of those pieces, but once I settled on the Replica Allagan Gauntlets, Jet Black all the way through simply made the most cohesive look. I also tried Pure White, which works well for the Loincloth, but not as well for the Separates, since it makes the shoulder straps grey (if only they were permanently black like the leather on top of the loincloth!).  The final product is, course, something unusual—it’s very rare that I go with an all-black look (mostly because I’m a dork and Alahra’s title is The White). But this is meant to mostly be a fun glamour anyway, so I took some liberties I normally wouldn’t.

Even though I don’t really enjoy BRD and MCH now, I do sort of have an itch to play one or the other after spending some time on this. That always happens! I doubt I’ll get more than a dungeon or two in before Gauss Barrel/Wanderer’s Minuet makes me wish I hadn’t ever taken either class past level 50, though.
