Portrait Studio & Housing Miscellany

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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #24

As fond as I was of my All Saints’ Wake offering for Ninja, with the seasonal event over, it was time to get back to something fit for more general use. I’d had my eyes on the Augmented Lost Allagan Jacket of Scouting for a long time—which I picked up right before All Saints’ Wake […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #23 (All Saints’ Wake 2017)

Much like I did last year, I’m using All Saints’ Wake as an excuse to do some fun glamours in the spirit of the season. I haven’t actually gotten through the whole event quest chain yet, but I did get take the time to grab the new Werewolf Attire, after which distractions happened (no, I’m […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #22

I’ve been mainly playing Ninja again over Samurai, having really started to miss it after finishing out the Striking Creation gear I wanted to get. I picked up the Lost Allagan weapon for Ninja last week and I’ll be grabbing the body piece this week, which will probably mean a new glamour (since I do […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #10

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Iga Ningi, as regular readers undoubtedly know, but I’ve also had long-running frustrations with it. It’s a lovely but difficult piece to use, as there has always been something missing in terms of companion pieces that I can’t quite put my finger on. That hasn’t stopped me from […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #9

While I was on vacation, I scrolled past some great artwork of the new Ninja Artifact Armor in Stormblood, which gave me a nagging need to go back to it. I’ve been pretty happy with my last look for Ninja, and the first attempt I made at using the Kage-kakushi Chaimail didn’t really turn out the way I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #21

As I mentioned recently, I’ve been on the hunt for a new Ninja glamour. In addition to my playing it more often, it’s my default job when roleplaying as Alahra, and narratively, she’s currently revisiting Gyr Abania with her wife after returning home from her part in the events of Stormblood (which only loosely track to the […]
