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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS

Long time readers know I almost never post Dragoon glamours—as of writing for this post, there have only been five on the site (which you can see by checking out the Dragoon category). One of those posts has curiously been one of the most popular pages on the site—probably because there are so few hits for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #3

I mentioned last time that I was a bit stuck on Dragoon glamours and that I had been considering going back to an older one (which has remained one of the most popular posts on the site, for reasons unknown to me), at least temporarily. That thought actually put the seed of an idea in my head, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #2

As of yesterday, I finally got the alt I’d been occasionally writing about to level 50, and that means she’s now able to have her own glamours officially. Of course, she doesn’t have a wide range of classes to glamour for (and probably never will), but I still need to glamour what she does have. Dragoon is Lynahra’s first […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #1

A little while back, I wrote about how much I liked the Drachen Armor, Dragoon’s original Artifact Armor set. That post led to a brief Twitter conversation that prompted me to go trade in a bunch of Antique drops to get the Wyrm’s Armor set, too, and I was surprised to learn that I didn’t […]

Fashion Favorites: Drachen Armor

My Dragoon glamour is basically nonexistent right now: I’ve been getting lucky with drops for it from the new 3.4 dungeons, and since I basically put no effort into gearing it, all of them have been fairly significant upgrades. At times like this, I often don’t keep my glamour fully attached to the new pieces […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #2

I’ve done almost nothing with Dragoon since I hit 60 on it, to the point that my old glamour actually deteriorated as I picked up random upgrades from newer dungeons, and over the past couple of days that was starting to bug me. It probably didn’t help that I saw a body piece I remembered […]
