Glamour Spotlight: Bard #22

In terms of Artifact Armor, Shadowbringers has been one of my favorite of FFXIV‘s expansions thus far, featuring sets I absolutely love for Monk and Ninja (among others), and some of my favorite Relic weapons in the whole game (and I’m greatly disappointed it seems like we’re abandoning this expansion’s lovely weapons for the Blades […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #21

Despite the fact that I’ve been picking at Bard for quite some time now (it’s 79!), I’ve not actually touched the Choral Chapeau since sometime back in February. Instead I’d largely been using my “canon” ARR glamour while I did my leveling (and I’ll probably be picking that up again soon once we actually have […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #43

So far Patch 5.3 has been slow on the glamour front for me. The main patch added several items I’d like to play around with, but they’re pretty much all from Puppets’ Bunker. That means I’m largely limited by the weekly lockout in how glamour-focused I can be. I’m not personally finding the new raid […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #38

Often enough, after I take care of a review for a new cash shop glamour set, I put the pieces in storage and rarely think of them again. Usually, such sets don’t really suit Alahra, but every now and again, I really strike gold. That’s the case for the new Dirndl’s Attire, which does something […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #46

So far, Patch 5.3 has been a real joy—it’s been wonderful to come back to FFXIV after a semi-hiatus during the extended period of 5.2, reinvigorated and ready to experience new things. Since this patch’s Main Scenario was much longer than usual, I’ve not yet had time to get through all of the main things […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #3

Patch 5.3 is finally almost here—we’re less than a week away from the climax of Shadowbringers, which has already been quite the ride. In anticipation of that, I felt it was time that I get Lynahra caught up on the Main Scenario. Since getting her to 80 and sorting out her glamour with the Gunbreaker […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #37

Like plenty of folks, I’ve been taking something of a low-key break from FFXIV over the past couple of months, what with Patch 5.3 (understandably!) behind schedule and all. I’ve got all of the initial Blades of Gunnhildr that I want, and since I don’t really do Extreme or Savage content anymore, I’m largely out […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #45

A little bit ago I began the ongoing process of figuring out the outfits I’m going to be using for the “canon” run of the Main Scenario I want to do through New Game Plus come 5.3. While I probably won’t have the full gamut of glamours done before 5.3, I want to at least […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #44

In Yoshi-P’s Letter from the Producer at the beginning of this month, we finally learned the release date of the long-awaited Patch 5.3. If history is any indication, we can expect this to be a big one in terms of story, since it should usher in the finale of the main plot of Shadowbringers—and if […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #36

Like I mentioned a few glamours ago, I’ve hit the point where my weekly Tomestones can mostly be spent for glamour purposes now. I picked up the Scouting Coat first and had a pretty successful glamour attempt with it (and I eagerly await being able to dye the coat in 5.3). After that, though, I […]
