Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #25

One of the strangest aspects of FFXIV is the mandatory Main Scenario. Long ago, I was more or less a fan of the idea, even if I understood it had its downsides. These days, after getting into Stormblood for the second go’round with Lynahra (and after going through A Realm Reborn and Heavensward a second time as well), I think every aspect […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #25

I mentioned a couple posts ago that I had a tank glamour in the wings for Ahrane, Alahra’s mother, which is a really great thing, since I’m currently obsessed with Lyse’s gear on Alahra, and this lets me break things up a bit! Canonically, in the present day, Ahrane is in her 50s (I’ve never […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #29

I’ve been spending a lot more time with Ahrane lately than I have in the past (for roleplaying at least; I’ve still done almost nothing with her gameplay wise), and for most of it, her last glamour has been bugging me. While I like the overall look, something about it has started to feel off, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #20

Since I’ve been largely taking a break from the game, mainly logging in to take care of Creation capping for the time being, I haven’t really been working on Lynahra for quite awhile (and that’s likely to continue a bit once Patch 4.1 launches, but we’ll see). That’s meant that while I’ve had an idea […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #18

Getting Lynahra to 60 on Samurai took awhile. Vacation got in the way, as well as a lot of other diversions (like treasure maps and some deep dives into Palace of the Dead). Part of the time in Palace of the Dead was spent on her Samurai, though, which pushed me close enough to 60 […]

Lynahra is now on her fourth job. She started out as a Marauder long ago, on the journey to unlocking Dark Knight. That didn’t go so well, and I ended up switching to Lancer/Dragoon for some reason, and I managed to stick with that despite really disliking the class until 50, at which point I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #2

As it turns out, the path to level 60 on dungeons alone, with no Main Scenario Quests and no Armory bonus is brutal, at least for me. Since Lynahra was already past level 50, I didn’t see much sense in purchasing a job boost for her Warrior—after all, how hard could it be to grind her […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #22

So far in Stormblood, I’ve been taken a fairly relaxed pace after hitting 70. I did, during the first two weeks, get both Ninja and Samurai to level 70, but we’re nearly four weeks in now, and I don’t have a third level 70 class yet (the third, Paladin, will be at the level cap in […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #20

Ever since we started getting rumblings about jump potions, I had been planning to get one for my second alternate character. She’s not a character I play actively for gameplay, but she comes in handy for role-playing purposes from time to time. She’s been level 1 for a very long time, which meant she had […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #1

It seems to happen pretty regularly that after I put up one of Alahra’s tank glamours, I get Lynahra to a point where she’s able to put together something new, too. I never really do that on purpose, but it is what it is, I suppose. I’ve had this glamour in mind in some form […]
