Glamour Spotlight: Goldsmith #1

It feels like ages ago now, but in the pre-5.1 world, I was at one point planning to post my specialist glamours for Alchemist, Goldsmith, and Weaver. I got around to one of them before I found myself without internet for a few days, and once I was back online, I wanted to focus on […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Casting

Patch 5.1’s new dungeon brings with it the first level 80 dungeon set of Shadowbringers, since the original three instead dropped accessories to accompany the expansions new Artifact Armor sets. Gathered only from The Grand Cosmos, the new Warg sets are full of wolf motifs, fur, and leather—making for a strange contrast with the stately […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #1

One of the first things I did at the start of Shadowbringers was take Lynahra’s Gunbreaker to 70, since I wasn’t particularly interested in either new class for Alahra, but my SO wanted to level Dancer for her main. After we got through to 70, we focused on the Main Scenario for quite some time, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #35

I’ve spent much of Shadowbringers as a Dark Knight main so far, and truth be told, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I’ve really taken to tanking with the redesigns for the expansion and finding the role to be more fun than damage dealing overall. However, I’m always going to have a soft spot […]

Patch 5.1 First Impressions & Glamour Spotlight: Striking #35

I’ve had a bit of time with Patch 5.1 so far, and I have to say I’m generally impressed. Following up the incredible Shadowbringers 5.0 launch, I was both excited for the next major patch and a little nervous. The new expansion launch was so good that I wasn’t sure the next installment could ever […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #27

I got Dancer to 80 some time ago now, but at the time I was pretty burnt out on the job and didn’t sit down to create a new glamour for it in celebration. Doing so would have been quite the challenge, since the base form of Dancer’s Artifact Armor doesn’t match much of anything […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Armor of Maiming

Last—but certainly not least—of the initial round of Shadowbringers dungeon sets, the Forgiven’s Maiming gear is perhaps my favorite of the Demon reskins from Mt. Gulg. I more or less never played Dragoon during A Realm Reborn, so I never realized how nice the set’s models are overall, and the new Forgiven’s set provide a […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Maiming

The Nabaath Maiming gear shares models with the Fending gear from Malikah’s Well, which unfortunately means that it doesn’t open up anything new for Dragoon (or any future Maiming classes). Mostly built off of Heavensward gathering gear models, the set also includes a helm that has an All Classes version (from Eureka) and a pair […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Garb of Striking

Sharing models with the Scouting set from Dohn Mheg, the Voeburtite Striking gear shares most of its colors with that set as well. However, it sets itself apart by adding an additional color: the bright reds so often used on Striking gear throughout FFXIV. Combined with the greens and browns that are shared with the […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Attire of Healing

For much of FFXIV‘s history, sets for casters and healers have followed a predictable pattern, sharing models more often than not and colors almost set in stone: dark (usually black) for casters and some shade of white for healers. Often, this is even the case when a full gear cycle a dark theme (such as […]
