It’s Patch Day for 3.5, which would normally mean I’d pick through the Patch Notes and offer my thoughts on various things. The Full Release (which you can read here!) didn’t really offer many surprises, though—just about everything in them we knew to expect. There are a ton of new Orchestrion rolls, and it looks like the Anima questline is going to reward us with an Anima minion, which is pretty neat, but outside of that, the gear preview I did not long ago covers everything major that’s of note for the blog.
Luckily, I thought ahead and got a round of screenshots last night before the game went down, of the Ninja glamour that will be taking me through Dun Scaith. After Dun Scaith, I’ll have my Augmented Shire Emissary’s Jacket, so this is going to be a very short-lived look. However, I really like it, so I’m glad I got screenshots of it before it disappears into glamours past.
Head: Reading Glasses (Dalamud Red) | Body: Sky Pirate’s Jacket of Scouting (Jet Black) | Hands: Replica Allagan Gauntlets of Striking (Jet Black) | Legs: Ramie Trousers of Scouting (Jet Black) | Feet: Archaeoskin Halfboots
I put this together largely because I started to miss the Ramie Trousers out of nowhere. The model has been a staple for a long time, even if I’ve always cycled through various body pieces with them. I wanted something new this time, and I actually came to the decision to try the Sky Pirate’s Jacket pretty quickly.
I didn’t really want to use the Allagan Gauntlets with it, but one of the jacket’s main issues is that it has the baggy sleeves that I’m not so fond of. Since Ninja still doesn’t have a lot in the way of elbow-length gloves, I was pretty limited in what I could do here. I’m sure the Scripture gloves could have been another option, but as usual, they’ve got Accuracy and Skill Speed, which makes them a really poor way to spend capped Tomestones.
I took a lot of screenshots for this one, by the way, and there was one I really wanted to use, but the companion shots for it came out simply awful due to lighting and angle problems. Here’s the one that did come out well, though:
There’s not a lot else to say about this one. I hope everyone is excited for the patch!
