Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #14

For the first time since the release of Ninja in Patch 2.4 of A Realm Reborn, it wasn’t the first job I took to the new level cap in the latest expansion. A lot of this came down to glamour, as I talked about a bit in my first glamour post of Shadowbringers, but the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Fending

One of my favorite round of gear sets from the initial launch of Shadowbringers has to be the Ravel Keeper’s gear. In general, FFXIV doesn’t offer a lot in the way of “tribal” aesthetics, but so far each expansion has had at least one dungeon that offers something in that vein. (In Heavensward, we had […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #34 (Level 80 Update)

I finally hit 80 and finished the Main Scenario Quest for Shadowbringers earlier this week. I’m still working through everything I want to say about that (which could very well be a lot), but in the meantime, it was time to iterate on my Dark Knight glamour since I always like to do so after […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Armor of Fending

The new Lakeland Armor of Fending in Shadowbringers is, like the other sets of Lakeland gear, a recolor. This one is somewhat unique in that its original source is not another dungeon, but rather a set of crafted leveling gear originally designed for Scouting and Striking DPS classes (the level 66 “white” gear from Stormblood, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #33

Alahra’s appearance is a huge part of FFXIV to me, and that fact hit me in the face like a brick on the first day of Early Access that I sat down to play the new Main Scenario. As I always do, I began the journey on Ninja, Alahra’s main job, rocking a Jet Black […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Garb of Scouting

Starting with Shadowbringers, I want to do something to alleviate the difficulty of finding solid images of dungeon gear in FFXIV. In what I hope will be a long running series, I’m going to make an effort to catalog screenshots of the expansion’s new gearsets. These will come in no particular order except the one […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #26 | Farewell to Stormblood

As the end of Stormblood drew near, I kept going back to the Dancer glamour I put together a little while ago, flummoxed by how quickly it went from perfect to way too heavy in my mind. For much of the last few weeks, I’ve been laser-focused on completing various end of the expansion goals, […]

Stormblood Retrospective: Final Thoughts

My Warrior of Light, Alahra, contemplates what is to come before the Crystal Tower.

We’re mere days away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, and we’ve reached the end of its second, Stormblood, with the recently released launch trailer shifting all the community’s energy toward the next expansion. As I did at the end of Heavensward, I’ve been taking this time before Shadowbringers to look back at Stormblood, with emphasis on […]

Stormblood Retrospective: Beast Tribe Quests

We’re now mere weeks away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, and we’ve reached the end of its second, Stormblood. The game’s next major version of 5.0 is nearly upon us. As I did before at the end of Heavensward, I’m taking this time before the expansion to look back at some aspects of Stormblood, with emphasis on […]

Glamour Roundup: The End of Stormblood

As we approached the end of Heavensward, I finalized a glamour for each of the game’s main armor types in Pure White, using some of my favorite pieces from the expansion. Around the same time, I used my complete lack of skill in image editing to cobble together a new header for the site, featuring […]
