The Ravel Keeper’s Attire of Casting from Shadowbringers offers another take on a ceremonial tribal look for the game’s magical DPS classes. Much lighter than other tribal sets (like the Woad Skywicce’s Garb from Sohm Al), the Ravel Keeper’s set has a sort of primal elegance that will probably give it a decent amount of longevity in overall glamour trends. Like all of the Ravel Keeper’s gear, the set can be found in The Qitana Ravel.

Like all of the sets from The Qitana Ravel, the main leftside pieces of this set are dyeable (though the weapons are non-dyeable). For the most part, the set follows a pretty straight-forward single channel dyeing pattern. The Chestwrap is the sole exception, which uses a mixture of shades across the different sections of the body piece. Sample images are included below in Dalamud Red.
Most of the pieces in the set have the normal minor clipping problems: some tail clipping potential in motion for the body and very slight hand clipping in some idle poses. Like many other circlets and similar items, however, the Headband has significant clipping issues with most hairstyles. The severity of these issues varies, and oftentimes the clipping looks “natural” (as though the item is woven simply obscured by the character’s hair), making the piece’s glamour potential highly dependent on hairstyle.
Outside of those clipping problems, the set’s great, and like other Ravel sets, some of the secondary pieces are useful tools for changing the appearance of body and leg pieces. Both the Halfgloves and the Sandals will cut off long sleeves or baggy pants, greatly expanding the usability of pieces that might have the right colors needed for a glamour but not the right shape. There aren’t many pieces that do so, and of course, all of the pieces are dyeable, adding a lot of flexibility. Because of that, it’s probably worth hanging onto some pieces of the set for glamour potential!
