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 […]

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 […]
