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: Monk #10

I’ve been agonizing over what to do with my Monk glamour ever since I finished the Anemos weapon for the job. I already talked about the reasons why, so I won’t reiterate how annoyed I still am about the Sudarshana Chakras Anemos. I stubbornly spent most of the time since I completed them trying to […]

Fashion Frustrations: Sudarshana Chakras Anemos

The Antiquated Pacifist’s Vest proved to have a lot of longevity for Alahra, allowing my last Monk glamour to survive for the full month leading up to Eureka’s launch. I knew the ultimate goal was to create a version of the look in white once I had the dyeable version, much as it is with […]

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: Striking DPS #29

Since getting Monk to a decent gear level, I’ve been having so much fun on it that I haven’t even played Ninja at all, and it’s actually in the running to become my de facto main moving forward in Stormblood. Out of loyalty to Alahra’s canon, I’ll probably still be focusing on Ninja for Eureka, of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #9

Prior to the launch of Stormblood, after we had more or less complete information on all the various changes and additions to FFXIV‘s jobs, I was of two minds on Monk. On the one hand, I wasn’t a huge fan of the overall changes, especially how many of Monk’s abilities were losing Potency to accommodate the new […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #28

With Monks finally getting a cooldown reduction on Perfect Balance, something I’ve been hoping they would get for years now, getting Monk to 70 is probably the highest thing on my priority list now. I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I actually like Samurai for all of Stormblood, but I think all […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #8

I’ve been very lazily leveling Monk lately, which is now a run of Bardam’s Mettle or so away from 67 and Doma Castle. In the process, I discovered I wasn’t very happy with the last glamour I’d put together with it (which is a little odd, since I would have thought Lyse’s gear would be […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #27

The tank in one of my recent Drowned City of Skalla runs had the Strife Vest glamoured, a piece of which I’ve always been rather fond, and since I’ve long exhausted most of of my available options for new pieces to work with, I decided to see if I could find a new use for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #26

I recently set up a screen saver on my PC to cycle through my FFXIV screenshots folder, which has naturally ended up being something of a glamour roll, since so much of the folder is taken up by screenshots I take for the site. That’s proven somewhat useful already, as it provided me with a bit of […]
