Another set in the line of functional adventuring gear from Dohn Mheg, the new level 73 dungeon in Shadowbringers, the Voeburtite Garb of Scouting is something of an upgrade to a style that hasn’t been seen much past the days of A Realm Reborn. Reminiscent of early leather armor for the game’s Disciple of War classes, the set overall has a much cleaner and “courtly” look like many of the other Voeburtite sets. Compared to other sets in the cycle, this one is a bit bulkier, which makes it an odd choice to give to the game’s Scouting armor type (and Striking, which has a palette swap of the same models), and hasn’t seemed as popular when it comes to glamour so far in the expansion.
Set Pieces (Requirements: NIN 73)
Weapon: Fae Knives
Head: Voeburtite Circlet of Scouting
Body: Voeburtite Jacket of Scouting
Hands: Voeburtite Gauntlets of Scouting
Legs: Voeburtite Gaskins of Scouting
Feet: Voeburtite Thighboots of Scouting
Like the other Voeburtite sets, there aren’t any significant modeling issues with this one. The Jacket is wide enough at the base to potentially clip with character hands, but only slightly. As with most Circlets, the worst of the set’s clipping is found with the headpiece, which interacts with a number of hairstyles poorly. As always, that can be avoided with a change in hairstyle, however. I didn’t notice any issues with character tails for this set (generally a running theme for Shadowbringers dungeon gear, thankfully!). As usual, the set is non-dyeable, but the included Fae Knives be be dyed like the other Fae weapons, with an example of them in Grape Purple included in the image gallery.
There’s little else to say about this one: it’s well-modeled and has a solid enough base color scheme. As with most dungeon sets, this one would have greater glamour applicability if it were dyeable. In terms of base colors, I’d imagine the Gauntlets and the Thighboots have the most overall potential, since they’re utilitarian enough to work with other pieces. Overall, given that the set is fairly plain, it’s no surprise to me that it hasn’t taken the world of FFXIV fashion by storm, but it’s still a solid foundation for a good adventuring look.
