Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #28 (All Saints’ Wake 2018)

With this being the third All Saints’ Wake since I started this blog, I suppose the yearly seasonal glamours are something of a tradition now. So, even though we’re not getting any new outfits this year, I wanted to keep the tradition alive. That does mean things are going to be trickier this year, since […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #15: Scouting DPS

When I started speculating about what new jobs we’ll see in 5.0, I played around a bit with existing gear and made what seemed like appropriate looks for all of them. I didn’t put a whole lot of time into a Scouting look for Blue Mage, though, and with Scouting/Ninja winning this month’s poll, I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #27

Starting with Sasuke’s Blades Zeta back in A Realm Reborn, I’ve often made a point of tailoring my Ninja glamours around my current-stage relic weapon, and I tried to make a tradition of the practice throughout Heavensward with its Anima weapons.  The tradition never really stuck, though, as I hit a huge snag when it came to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #13

In a lot of ways, I suppose it’s silly for a Ninja to run around wearing white, but putting Alahra in Pure White Artifact Armor has been a tradition for me since A Realm Reborn. I never found a white glamour I was satisfied with using the original set (but I did run around with all […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #12

I acquired the Anemos Kage-Kakushi Chainmail not long after I put together my Scorpion Harness glamour for Ninja, so it didn’t last all that long. As you might expect, I wanted put the dyeable Artifact Armor to use right away, and of course I had Pure White on my mind. The Chainmail dyes fairly well […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #26

Long ago in Final Fantasy XI, the Ninja job had a reputation as a rich player’s job. Because the game had steep consumable requirements, in that every single Ninjutsu spell required a specific tool to cast, it was most popular with players who were already at the level cap, which allowed them to more easily make […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #9: Scouting DPS

I’ve had a fascination with “biker” glamours for Alahra as far back as A Realm Reborn, which began during the 2.4 Patch, where we got the Picaroon’s Trousers of Scouting. Of course, this was also the same Patch that Ninja was added, of course, so I tried out a lot of different styles. I highlighted one […]

I haven’t gotten much glamouring done over the past few days, as I’m at a point where I’m pretty happy with most everything I’ve put together recently. Instead, a lot of my idle time has been spent on decorating, since the S.O. and I were able to get a Medium house in a subdivision of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #11

In the last Spotlight, I mentioned wanting to get a new Ninja glamour going for the Main Scenario in Patch 4.2 as usual, but I wasn’t actually sure I was going to be able to get that done in time before Patch Day. It’s actually been quite some time since I’ve gotten any new gear […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #25

After two glamours with Lyse’s gear already, I probably don’t need to go into the fact that I really like the set. It’s very slowly taking over my glamours all around, and I continue to get new ideas for it every day. I’m doing what I can to maintain some level of variety, but the set is so […]
