Selfie Spotlight: Elegant Rimless Glasses

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I use glasses a lot for my glamours. The game’s got a wide variety of styles to choose from, but it can be difficult to really showcase any of them in normal screenshots. Naturally, the only answer is to take a selfie. I don’t actually know when they put […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #3

After the last couple months, which had me run through the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series leading up to the release of Kingdom Hearts III, diving into Dragon Age: Inquisition for two 100-hour playthroughs, and then (naturally) playing through Kingdom Hearts III, I’m finally at a point where I’m getting back into FFXIV in a more direct way. I’ve started getting […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #29

Last weekend, when I was perusing gear upgrades for my Ninja in Rhalgr’s Reach, I saw someone using the Bonewicca Shadow’s Chestpiece from Swallow’s Compass, which was something of a surprise, since I realized I’d never actually seen it. Swallow’s Compass was added during my slowed down period with the game, and I only ran it once […]

Fantasia Spotlight #6: Female Hyur (Tanks)

Even though we’re in the midst of All Saints’ Wake, I figured I needed to take a detour this week and work out this month’s Fantasia glamour before it was too late! This month, the vote came up for another glamour featuring a female hyur, and since I did one for a midlander before, I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #32

When I (finally) finished leveling Astrologian to 70, its gear was a bit of a glamour mess. My Scholar has long been wearing partial Anemos gear, since one of my first vanity purchases with my Eurekan crystals was the dyeable Orator’s Bottoms. Swapping my Astrologian into the rest of my healer gear left me in […]

Fantasia Spotlight #2: Female Roegadyn (Maiming DPS)

It’s July now, of course, which actually means I’m slightly late on this one, but I did have my patrons vote on the race and gender for my next Fantasia last month. The results ended in a 5-way tie, so I had to throw in the deciding vote. After some ruminating on the matter, going to female […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #32 & Another Return Home

I’m still working my way through the main content additions from 4.3, and while there’s a lot I could talk about, especially regarding the Main Scenario, that will have to wait for now. In the meantime, for the MSQ and the Riordana Lighthouse chapter of Return to Ivalice, I decided to go on Ninja, even […]

Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #5

I’ve now acquired most of the items from Eureka that I wanted for my level 70 jobs, which means my thoughts are now turning toward what jobs to level next, so that my crystals don’t go to waste. The three main contenders at the moment are Astrologian, Machinist, and White Mage, with the last two […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #27

Starting with Sasuke’s Blades Zeta back in A Realm Reborn, I’ve often made a point of tailoring my Ninja glamours around my current-stage relic weapon, and I tried to make a tradition of the practice throughout Heavensward with its Anima weapons.  The tradition never really stuck, though, as I hit a huge snag when it came to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Black Mage #3

At this point, it’s pretty safe to say that glamour potential alone is going to keep me interested in Eureka for some time to come, as I keep getting ideas for ways to use the dyeable Artifact Armor sets. While I had planned to finish off the Anemos Storyteller’s set for Bard, the realization that […]
