Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Armor of Maiming

After a long journey around the circle of FFXIV‘s armor types, I’m finally able to start working on Dragoon sets. First up of these is (appropriately) the Lakeland Armor of Maiming. Like all of the sets from Holminster Switch, this one is level 71 and re-uses models from FFXIV‘s past, with this one built from […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #7

For a couple weeks now, I’ve been focused pretty exclusively on finishing gear set galleries for the initial round of dungeons in Shadowbringers. That’s meant a lot of leveling dungeons and not a ton of time to sit around and glamour. I’m getting into the home stretch, though! As far as getting one of every […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #6

In something of a break from my normal trend, I’ve been saving a lot of my job quests while leveling in Stormblood until near the end of the process. So, while my Dragoon is nearly 70 as of writing (and probably will be by the time this is up on the site), I hadn’t actually […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #3

After the last couple months, which had me run through the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series leading up to the release of Kingdom Hearts III, diving into Dragon Age: Inquisition for two 100-hour playthroughs, and then (naturally) playing through Kingdom Hearts III, I’m finally at a point where I’m getting back into FFXIV in a more direct way. I’ve started getting […]

Glamour Spotlight: Disciple of War #1

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) had an interesting request, something of a challenge: a glamour that had a total item level no larger than 100, which got me to look at lower level gear in a new light. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. […]

Fantasia Spotlight #2: Female Roegadyn (Maiming DPS)

It’s July now, of course, which actually means I’m slightly late on this one, but I did have my patrons vote on the race and gender for my next Fantasia last month. The results ended in a 5-way tie, so I had to throw in the deciding vote. After some ruminating on the matter, going to female […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #5

For much of Fashion Ninjutsu’s history, I’ve had trouble with tank glamours, since Alahra tends to look awful in most heavy armor pieces, and from level 50 onward, tanks don’t get a lot in the way of lighter armor for glamour purposes. It’s never really occurred to me before now, but I honestly think I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #4

One of the first things I did in early Stormblood was to start using Poetics from Roulettes and Palace of the Dead to finish gearing out all of my side jobs in full i270 gear. I didn’t have a lot left to get, so it wasn’t long before my Dragoon was kitted out in the full Augmented […]

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. Sporadically over the […]
