Glamour Spotlight: Weaver #1

Now that we have a slightly narrower release window for Patch 5.1 of Shadowbringers—late October—I don’t feel like I have to scramble quite so hurriedly to have all of the 5.0 dungeon gear set galleries up on the site in time. That means I can get back to sprinkling in some glamours I’ve been sitting […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #8

Way back in Final Fantasy XI, I loved the game’s various yukatas, which were usually part of various summertime events not unlike FFXIV‘s Moonfire Faire. For the most part, the relaunched FFXIV hasn’t continued the tradition, with only the first Moonfire Faire following the game’s 2.0 relaunch as A Realm Reborn offering yukatas of any variety. I’ve only rarely found uses […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #7

Often when I glamour my Disciples of the Hand, I try to stick to really functional things, which generally serves to be a pretty severe limitation. My last few crafting glamours have been largely variations on the same basic look, with the basic color scheme and even many of the pieces staying the same from […]

I’ve so far had positively awful luck getting Skalla body pieces to play around with for glamour, despite farming it for the largest majority of my Creation capping last week. I’m going to do the same thing this week, hopefully, as I really like the look of several of the Skalla pieces. They dye very well, and […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #5

Crafting glamours usually flummox me a bit since all of the classes tend to share gear, and it can be hard to go for anything that’s really thematically appropriate for all of them at once. Sometimes we get looks that are fairly broad in their applicability, as with the Ironworks Crafting gear from Heavensward, but for […]

I really should have known that the Alchemist glamour I put together earlier in the week wasn’t going to last. Wednesday evening, after the post went up, I resolved to finish up my Dark Knight Anima weapon, and along the way, I got a really strong urge to mess with my tank glamour. That meant […]

Glamour Spotlight: Alchemist #1

I’ve mentioned a few times over the last several months that I’ve been working on a more permanent glamour for all of my crafting classes, since they’ve long since been fully kitted with i190 Ironworks gear. I had a red and black look I was using for awhile, but what I really wanted to do […]

Heavensward Retrospective: Glamour

As Final Fantasy XIV’s first major expansion, Heavensward had a lot to live up to, and carried a pretty heavy burden, as far as solidifying the game’s foundation for the future goes, and now that it’s nearly over, I’ve been thinking a lot about what the expansion did well and what it didn’t. Sporadically over the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #3

Over the weekend I intended to get my PvP glamour for Ninja updated, but I’m having real trouble figuring out where to go with it. I put together two separate looks yesterday, but both were sufficiently similar to looks I’ve posted before that I didn’t want to commit to posting them just yet (and like it […]

Glamour Tweaks and Miscellany

It’s funny to me, but in a way, maintaining this blog has started to affect my glamour habits. In some ways I’ve become more picky, and in others, I think I’ve gotten a bit more lax than I used to be. When it comes to Ninja, I’m pickier than ever, because updating my Ninja glamour here […]
