Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #39

Patch 5.2 is finally here! It’s felt like such a long wait, even though the overall patch cadence has been the same for years now. At every turn, Shadowbringers has left me wanting more in a way that I don’t think any of FFXIV‘s previous expansions have managed (and I’m already looking forward to Patch […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #38 & Studio Update

Because I’ve been enjoying 2B’s boots so much, I decided to let my first Rebel Coat glamour for Dark Knight sit for awhile, even when I knew I was going to be iterating on it in preparation for the Main Scenario of Patch 5.2. I’ve been bouncing and forth between that first look and a […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #2

Alongside my very lazy picking at other jobs to level, I’ve made a lot of progress toward getting my alt Lynahra through the Shadowbringers Main Scenario. While getting through the previous expansion packs with her felt like a chore more than anything else, I’ve been pretty keen on finishing Shadowbringers, both to experience the story […]

After I finished my last tank glamour, I thought I’d be mostly done fiddling with a look for Dark Knight until we hit the next major patch toward the end of February. While I definitely wasn’t planning to take that look into 5.2’s Main Scenario (which by all accounts looks like it’s finally going to […]

After putting together my last glamour for Bard and Machinist and swiftly growing quite fond of it, I suppose I couldn’t help but be a little curious about the Anemos Jacket again. Like I mentioned before, I’ve never much liked how this stripped down version of the jacket dyes, with a particular dislike for the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #1

One of the first things I did at the start of Shadowbringers was take Lynahra’s Gunbreaker to 70, since I wasn’t particularly interested in either new class for Alahra, but my SO wanted to level Dancer for her main. After we got through to 70, we focused on the Main Scenario for quite some time, […]

My distaste for FFXIV‘s heavy armor is well-documented by this point, but it’s been rearing its head more readily ever since I took up Dark Knight as my de facto main in Shadowbringers. Outside of the new Voeburtite Jacket, the expansion hasn’t added much in the way of new armor that fits my preferred tank […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #34 (Level 80 Update)

I finally hit 80 and finished the Main Scenario Quest for Shadowbringers earlier this week. I’m still working through everything I want to say about that (which could very well be a lot), but in the meantime, it was time to iterate on my Dark Knight glamour since I always like to do so after […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #33

Alahra’s appearance is a huge part of FFXIV to me, and that fact hit me in the face like a brick on the first day of Early Access that I sat down to play the new Main Scenario. As I always do, I began the journey on Ninja, Alahra’s main job, rocking a Jet Black […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #32

Although I’m more excited for Dancer personally—since it’s a better fit for Alahra than either Bard or Machinist—I’m actually most likely to level Gunbreaker before it, since I’m hoping it will be a good fit for Lynahra. I’ve been struggling to find her class identity pretty much since the moment of her creation in FFXIV, […]
