Glamour Spotlight: Monk #4

Luckily, I happened to check the Lodestone this morning to find out about the emergency maintenance for NA Worlds today, which meant I had enough time to decide on a topic for today and also take the accompanying screenshots.

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #1

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #1

A couple days ago, I mentioned my love for the Kirimu Coat, which was added in patch 2.4. In addition to finally giving me Ninja, the patch added some of the most enduring gear models the game has seen so far (with only the High Allagan gear from Second Coil of Bahamut having as much longevity […]
