Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #36

I’ve struggled to come up with a relic glamour for Monk’s new Samsara from the Blades of Gunnhildr. While its colors are generally up my alley, with red, black, and gold all featuring heavily in my glamours over the years, Monk in particular lacks solid glamour options that cover all three in a way that […]

Patch 5.1 First Impressions & Glamour Spotlight: Striking #35

I’ve had a bit of time with Patch 5.1 so far, and I have to say I’m generally impressed. Following up the incredible Shadowbringers 5.0 launch, I was both excited for the next major patch and a little nervous. The new expansion launch was so good that I wasn’t sure the next installment could ever […]

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: Disciple of War #1

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) had an interesting request, something of a challenge: a glamour that had a total item level no larger than 100, which got me to look at lower level gear in a new light.

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #32 & Another Return Home

I’m still working my way through the main content additions from 4.3, and while there’s a lot I could talk about, especially regarding the Main Scenario, that will have to wait for now. In the meantime, for the MSQ and the Riordana Lighthouse chapter of Return to Ivalice, I decided to go on Ninja, even […]

Glamour Spotlight: Samurai #1

I’ve been saying I’m going to do something with the Anemos Myochin Haori for ages now and getting distracted by other glamour ideas for just as long. Full-body robes like the Haori are always less fun to glamour with, since they obscure so many of the other choices you can make for other slots, which […]
