Glamour Spotlight: Casters #40

Much like my level 80 healer, I’ve not touched either Red Mage or Summoner much at all since getting the two of them to 80, which has meant a lack of a proper level cap glamour for my casting gear for much of the expansion so far. My caster-swap of my Voeburtite healing glamour has […]

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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Blue Mage #1

Without a doubt, my favorite thing about Blue Mage so far has been its aesthetics. If there’s one thing the dev team can do and do well in FFXIV, i’ts nail how a job looks and feels, from its job-specific gear to its emotes and audiovisual effects. That’s true for Blue Mage in much the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #39

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) requested a magical girl glamour for casters this month. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When it comes to magical girls in FFXIV, I’ve most commonly seen people shoot for a Sailor Moon kind of look, using things like […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #38

So, I had one more glamour with the Eastern Socialite’s Cheongsam in me before I start moving on to other things. I mentioned last time the idea of using it alongside the Halonic Exorcist’s Boots for my casters, especially since I needed to do something about the last caster look, which was decidedly outside of […]

On Blue Mage & FFXIV’s Limited Jobs

In my summary of the Shadowbringers announcement from this year’s North American FFXIV Fan Festival, I only really touched briefly on my own thoughts. If you follow me on Twitter, though, you probably know that I’m rather frustrated by the way Blue Mage will be implemented in the game come Patch 4.5. My thoughts on the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #37

Like I mentioned last time, I’m finally getting around to picking up the Bonewicca glamour gear from Swallow’s Compass, and along with the Shadow’s Chestpiece, I also picked up the Whisperer’s Jacket. With its fancy “wings,” the Jacket is probably one of the most unique we’ve seen in FFXIV so far, and I assumed that meant I’d […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #36 (All Saints’ Wake 2018)

One thing that’s always vexed me when putting together glamours for All Saints’ Wake is that Pumpkin Orange Dye doesn’t match the shades of orange used on the seasonal glamour items. Most of the time, Sunset Orange has worked better, but even that’s not a perfect match, since it lacks some of the brightness of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Red Mage #7

On the whole, Stormblood has honestly presented me with a pretty huge glamour conundrum. We’re roughly two-thirds of the way through the expansion (or halfway, if the possibility of a 4.6/4.7 mentioned by Yoshida comes to fruition), and I’ve gotten almost no new glamour staples. With very few exceptions, I’ve disliked almost every new set that we’ve […]
