Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Striking

Largely sharing models with the Scouting gear from the same dungeon, the Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Striking follows along thematically with the rest of the sets from The Qitana Ravel, a new dungeon from the Shadowbringers expansion. Serving well as tribal or ceremonial garb that’s lighter fare than other options in the same vein, the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Garb of Striking

At a glance, it can be a bit difficult to distinguish the Lakeland Garb of Striking from the corresponding Scouting set from the first dungeon of Shadowbringers. Both sets are based on the Bogatyr’s Garb from A Realm Reborn, and both have largely similar color schemes centered around shades of brown and black. The devil […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #12

As I mentioned it likely would be soon, my Monk is 80 now! I’m currently waffling between gearing it or gearing Dark Knight moving forward, but whether I focus on it as my main job for awhile or not, I’ll definitely be using it as my primary DPS until Ninja gets some much-needed changes. Even […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #11

Way back in Stormblood, I had the idea that, in-character, Alahra was going to retire from adventuring after the events of the 4.0 Main Scenario. I wanted a way to explain a potential main job shift, since I wasn’t sure I was going to keep playing Ninja even back then. In her retirement, I imagined […]

Glamour Roundup: The End of Stormblood

As we approached the end of Heavensward, I finalized a glamour for each of the game’s main armor types in Pure White, using some of my favorite pieces from the expansion. Around the same time, I used my complete lack of skill in image editing to cobble together a new header for the site, featuring […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #34

Things have been a little hectic since my last post, so I’m only just now getting around to doing a write-up for another glamour I did around the same time—this one for Monk. I want to keep my options open going into Shadowbringers, as I’ve gotten a bit disillusioned with Ninja’s gameplay design, and I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #33

Site patron @curious_usagi wanted a glamour for “casual Fridays” this month, leading to this one. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When I first got this request, I strongly suspected I’d be looking to some of FFXIV‘s more modern gear pieces—things like the Whisperfine Woolen Boots […]

Fantasia Spotlight #7: Male Miqo’te (Monk)

When I first started taking Fantasia requests from Patreon, I was certain one of the first ones I did would be for a male miqo’te. As it’s turned out, it took a full 7 fantasias (and months) to get to that point, but that time is finally here. I’ve been anticipating this one for so […]
