Fashion Favorites: Temple Attire

For her most recent request, @curious_usagi wanted to know my favorite Artifact set from A Realm Reborn. I’d talked a little bit before about the Drachen Armor being my favorite, but the more I thought about it I realized that wasn’t entirely true. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support the site […]

Fashion Frustrations: Sudarshana Chakras Anemos

The Antiquated Pacifist’s Vest proved to have a lot of longevity for Alahra, allowing my last Monk glamour to survive for the full month leading up to Eureka’s launch. I knew the ultimate goal was to create a version of the look in white once I had the dyeable version, much as it is with […]

Fashion Frustrations: Tail Clipping

I’ve been complaining about tail clipping issues in Final Fantasy XIV for a very long time—the problem is at least as old as A Realm Reborn (and possibly older, though I’ve seen a lot to indicate that, at the least, the problem wasn’t as bad in version 1.0). There’s a fundamental issue with the way tails (and hair and […]

Fashion Frustrations: Pure White Dye

It’s been a long time since I’ve been frustrated enough to post one of these, but here we are. I originally planned to showcase a new caster glamour today since I have the Augmented Shire Philosopher’s Coat now, but I’ve hit a snag on it. As with many other body pieces, I really wanted to […]

Fashion Frustrations: Amatsu Togi

I had wanted to have a new glamour ready for today, either for Monk or Dragoon, since they’re both still sitting around in an unglamoured state. I couldn’t tell you why, but I instead ended up fixating on the Amatsu attire and realized I never made a Ninja glamour for it. On top of that, […]

Fashion Frustration: Dyes

Those readers who follow me on Twitter have been treated to several whiny tweets all centering around my NIN glamour over the course of last night and this morning. I’m frustrated about a number of things, from dorky things like not wanting to wear all black when Alahra’s title is The White to general frustrations with […]

Fashion Frustrations: Legacy Warrior Set

Last night after I got home from GenCon 2016, I rushed to get enough of the Moonfire Faire event done to pick up the majority of the new glamour gear. From the preview images we’d gotten prior to the start of the event, I was sure I’d be able to use the Legacy Warrior Breeches—which seemed to have a […]

Fashion Frustrations: “Eastern” Gear

If there’s one thing about FFXIV that I wish was more like FFXI, it would be the latter’s wide availability of “Eastern” gear for Monks, Samurais, and Ninjas. Monk was available from launch in FFXI as a base class, which meant numerous pieces of gear that were tailored to to a certain martial arts/Far Eastern (which was […]

Fashion Frustrations: Iga Ningi

For almost two weeks now, I’ve actually had a completed Ninja glamour that I never shared on here because I just wasn’t happy with it. It honestly looked great, but there was something bothering me about it that I couldn’t put my finger on. I unfortunately only have one screenshot of it (because I dismantled it […]

Fashion Frustrations: Replica Heavy Allagan Cuisses+Flanchard

At the same time that I got the Replica stuff I wanted for Ninja, I picked up two other long-running favorites, the Heavy Allagan Cuisses and Flanchard: Like the Replicas for Ninja and Monk, the original Allagan Cuisses and Flanchard had long been glamour staples for my tanks during 2.x. The Flanchard in particular was […]
