Gear Set Gallery: Anamnesis Armor of Fending

After a productive farming session of Patch 5.2’s new dungeon (in which I was lucky enough to pick up The Ancient One), I can finally start sharing gear set galleries for Anamnesis Anyder. In a reversal of last patch’s luck (where the Warg Garb of Fending was the last set I completed), the first one […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Fending

After the last pair of gear set galleries from The Grand Cosmos (for Aiming and Maiming) went up, I needed exactly one piece to finish off the final set and thus complete the galleries for Patch 5.1. It took almost three full weeks to finally pick that piece up (and that’s not including the fact […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Fending

It’s been an intense, set gallery spamming ride here on Fashion Ninjutsu ever since I made the decision to document all of the expansion’s new dungeon gear.

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Armor of Fending

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Armor of Fending

Tank armor is my nemesis in FFXIV, but I have to admit a certain fondness for the Forgiven’s armor set from Shadowbringers. The original Demon Armor from World of Darkness was one of the few pieces of heavy armor I wore back in A Realm Reborn (and I wore the Chromite version from Stormblood for […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Fending

One of my favorite round of gear sets from the initial launch of Shadowbringers has to be the Ravel Keeper’s gear. In general, FFXIV doesn’t offer a lot in the way of “tribal” aesthetics, but so far each expansion has had at least one dungeon that offers something in that vein. (In Heavensward, we had […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Armor of Fending

The new Lakeland Armor of Fending in Shadowbringers is, like the other sets of Lakeland gear, a recolor. This one is somewhat unique in that its original source is not another dungeon, but rather a set of crafted leveling gear originally designed for Scouting and Striking DPS classes (the level 66 “white” gear from Stormblood, […]
