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.

Glamour Spotlight: Gatherers

I don’t have a new tank glamour just yet, but I do have an idea for something that might work. The trouble is that I need to farm up a couple of pieces first. I’m going to be working on that today, but one thing I did do over the weekend was make some modifications to my […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gatherers

Every now and then we get a new piece of gear that insists on being in as many of my glamours as possible. Things like this are almost always glasses or boots, with the Expeditioner’s Thighboots being a big one that have been in a significant number of my looks. The Scion Healer’s Halfboots are […]

I’ve been gathering quite often as part of the effort to get the gil needed to finish off my crafting accessory melds, which also means I haven’t been quite as lazy […]

Patch 3.3 Trailer & Gear Previews

So for those of you who haven’t seen it (which, I have to admit, is probably none of you), the Patch 3.3 trailer went live today: Square usually does a good job of getting me excited for the new patches, and this one’s no exception. I really can’t wait to take on Nidhogg and hopefully […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gatherers

About a week ago, I got the urge to work on my Botanist as a way to supplement my in-game income. I never really had much of a glamour for it pre-expansion, as even though it was level 50, I only very rarely used it. But over the weekend, after hitting level 53 and making the […]
