Glamour Spotlight: Healers #31

It’s always bugged me how limited glamour options are for casters and healers in FFXIV, which is largely a consequence of class and job restrictions being baked into the glamour system. “Heavy armor” jobs like Dragoon or Paladin have a decent amount of freedom to trim down, as it were, by relying on various leather and […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #3

Because the various Artifact Armor sets from Heavensward were originally locked behind Tomestones of Esoterics, I never got around to collecting a large number of them. For the first raid tier, they were limited by the weekly lockout; once the lockout was removed, my Esoterics were going almost exclusively toward the Anima questline; and once they had […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #30

When I got this month’s other Patron Request, for a tank glamour with “minimal metal,” with studded leather in games like Dungeons & Dragons being given as an example, I thought I’d have an easy time of it. Though I’ve never really used them much for glamour, there are a handful of leather jackets among the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #8

Way back in Final Fantasy XI, I loved the game’s various yukatas, which were usually part of various summertime events not unlike FFXIV‘s Moonfire Faire. For the most part, the relaunched FFXIV hasn’t continued the tradition, with only the first Moonfire Faire following the game’s 2.0 relaunch as A Realm Reborn offering yukatas of any variety. I’ve only rarely found uses […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #30

One reason I wanted to start taking requests from Patrons was to broaden my glamour horizons, since (and anyone who reads the site regularly will know this) I tend to focus on a familiar range of styles and types of gear. Glamour is naturally a very subjective activity: what looks good to one person may […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #21

Way back in the most ancient days of 2016, I lamented FFXIV‘s overall lack of Eastern-themed gear, something that’s gotten a lot better since we’ve entered the Stormblood era. So, when I got my other Patron Request for a Shrine Maiden glamour, I figured I’d have an easy time of it, since there was bound to be […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #7

Often when I glamour my Disciples of the Hand, I try to stick to really functional things, which generally serves to be a pretty severe limitation. My last few crafting glamours have been largely variations on the same basic look, with the basic color scheme and even many of the pieces staying the same from […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #26

I’ve had a new Dark Knight glamour for Ahrane on my list of things to do for a couple months now, ever since I first potion jumped her to level 60. After I did that, I put a quick one together, but given how similar it was to Lynahra’s current Warrior glamour, I really wanted […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #28

Being without a computer for a week really derailed most of my glamour plans and progress toward various in-game goals, and I went into the planning stage for my next post with no clue what I was going to post! The first thing that came to me was to rework Alahra’s Samurai glamour, but in […]
