Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #41

It’s been awhile, huh? I took some time away from writing in general through December and most of January for a variety of reasons, but I have still been playing FFXIV just about every day (though I’ve been diving into some other games, including the simply excellent Hades from Supergiant Games). I’ve been sitting on […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #47

Happy Patch Week, everyone! We’re just a day into the patch, and I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves! For myself, I’ve cleared through the Main Scenario, finished the Eden storyline, and done the new Void quests, all of which I’ve really enjoyed! But I’m not really writing to talk about all of that today […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #37

Within the last week, I pushed Astrologian to level 80, leaving just one more job to finish before I finally receive my Amaro. Though I never imagined it would be the last of my jobs to go, all I need to do now is get Machinist to 80, and then I won’t have to level […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #40 / Scouting DPS #44

We’re probably a couple weeks from Patch 5.4 now, while there’s plenty to be excited about as with any new raid tier patch, I think the thing I’m looking forward to the most is the upcoming Monk rework. I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the job in FFXIV—it’s the job I would main if […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #45

Just as I thought things were finally calming down again, I found myself with very little time to do the things I’ve meant to be doing in game: mainly, leveling Astrologian and Machinist and farming Puppets’ Bunker for the YoRHa Type-53 Coat of Striking, which still eludes me. I’ve mostly been slowly picking at a […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #39

With my initial interest in Bojza Southern Front having cratered following my personal clash with the design goals at its core and my primary relic weapons complete for the time being, gameplay’s been taking a back seat for me in the game once again. Instead, I’ve mostly been leaning hard into roleplaying to pass much […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #10

So far, I’ve managed to collect every body piece from Puppets’ Bunker except for the Striking body, which is the one I wanted most after the Fending coat. While I’ve not done any serious farming since the initial binge that got me the one I needed for Dark Knight, I’ve been running the raid since […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #10

So far, my Patch 5.35 hasn’t really gone like I expected it would at all! By now, I imagined I’d have done a ton of Bozjan Southern Front, but as of writing I’ve actually only managed to get one lockout in! Instead, I’ve been busying myself capping out new relics outside of the exploration zone […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #47

I’ve been playing Scholar a lot recently, as I’m down to needing just two more pieces of Shadowless gear from Heroes’ Gauntlet—one for healers and one for ranged DPS. At that point I’ve found it better to run via the Duty Finder rather than with Trusts for more chances at seeing the drops I need, […]

Glamour Spotlights: Casters #44

I’ve been carefully eyeing the price of the new Hraesvelgr Attire added with Patch 5.31’s update to Restoration of the Holy See, while also being mindful of the fact that I want a comfortable amount of gil stowed for the upcoming addition of new housing plots. A week or so ago, the price of the […]
