After I wrapped up my last healer glamour, I stumbled upon a pair of Casting Legs that work really well with the Scion Healer’s Robe, which prompted me to fiddle around over the weekend trying to make another look with it. I’m not 100% sold on what I’ve done with it yet (gloves are proving to be a problem) but even if I were, I wouldn’t want to post it today since, for the most part, it looks the same as the one in my last post (barring some small details, like the Leg piece). I’ll probably work on it over the course of this week and possibly post it next week, but I want to be sure it’s really done before I do, since it’s so much like something I’ve already posted.

Since I generally don’t like to use the same body piece for multiple roles, I also decided to rework my Healer glamour again, and here we are. The tricky part with this was that I didn’t have anything in mind. I already had a glamour that I liked, and so I was mainly changing it for the sake of change—that can make things difficult! I ended up randomly trying on a lot of different body pieces, and at least this time, that worked out okay: I actually ended up with a look that I’m surprised I hadn’t used before.

Glamour Components
Head: Elegant Rimless Glasses (Jet Black Dye) | Body: Falconer’s Shirt (Pure White Dye) | Hands: Augmented Hailstorm Gloves of Healing (Pure White Dye) | Legs: Cashmere Skirt of Healing (Jet Black Dye) | Feet: Expeditioner’s Thighboots (Jet Black Dye)

Looking back on it, I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t used the Falconer’s Shirt before. I don’t care for the sleeves on it, but healers in particular have access to a number of decent elbow gloves that can take care of that problem, and the rest of the shirt looks great (it works well in a variety of colors, too). Of course, the Augmented Hailstorm Gloves seem to go with almost anything at this point, and in particular I like how the grey on them matches up with the grey symbol on the chest of the Shirt.

Though I’m primarily playing Scholar again, I went with the Cashmere Skirt here instead of one of the three SCH-specific Culottes, since I was using the Expeditioner’s Thighboots. The stockings on any of the SCH-specific ones probably wouldn’t have really gone well with the shirt in any case.

The end result is a somewhat simple but functional look, complete with my normally preferred white and black color scheme. Normally, more simple looks give me pause because they can sometimes seem out of place for actual combat situations. I like the pairing of the Falconer’s Shirt and the Expeditioner’s Thighboots, though, because they both have knives attached, which gives the look a sort of “casually prepared” feel. I’ll probably end up idling in town on a healer pretty regularly because of that (though I suppose I already do that, since I’m so fond of the ACN/SCH/SMN alternate weapon pose).

Slowly but surely, Pure White body pieces are taking over my glamours again—I’m currently mulling over what to do with Aiming and Fending gear so that my main glamours all “match” thematically. Both of them are going to be a bit tricky, though. For Aiming, I’m generally playing MCH more than BRD, which locks me out of the Bard Esoterics gear (which looks great in Pure White). Tanks, of course, get stuck with that “metallic white” look on most of their body pieces, which I’m not a fan of at all, so finding something that will work is going to be tricky. One or the other will probably end up on here sometime this week, though!
