Glamour Spotlight: Dark Knight #4

Although I knocked out what work I had to do in Pagos and Pyros to finish my Eureka weapon for Dark Knight, I slowed down considerably once I hit Hydatos. At that point, the fatigue I’d felt from my original Eureka grind for Ninja came back in full, reinforced by the comparatively low number of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #38

As we get closer the launch of Patch 5.2, with the second Live Letter on the horizon, I’ve started waffling ever so slightly on what my main job will be once the patch drops for this tier. While I’ve been massively enjoying Dark Knight, both for its resonance with the expansion itself and the overhauled […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #31

The quest for colors continues. While my ranged glamours of the expansion have generally been more colorful than most of my others, the last one I put together for Dancer was definitely more of a passing fancy. After all the glamours I put together with 2B’s boots, I suppose it was inevitable that I’d get […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #42

Often while leveling, glamours I put together fade quickly, since I’m not always the best about reapplying them when swapping in new gear for the dungeon breakpoints. That’s meant my Black Mage has been floundering for a little while now—since I knew I was looking to overhaul Alahra’s color palette, I never got around to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #14

One of my favorite things to find in FFXIV is a pair of pieces that have naturally matching colors without dyes. It doesn’t happen all that often for me since I so regularly begin with dyes as a starting point, but when it does, I normally have to put something together for it before I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #42

My plan for today had been to work out a new glamour for Monk, as the next step in my own ongoing process of putting some more color back into Alahra’s life. After Ninja, Monk is most often my next step, since it rounds out Alahra’s canon jobs as the other side of her melee […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #37

Now that I’ve got Alahra’s canon/cutscene glamour finalized in preparation for 5.2, I figured it was time to really start focusing on bringing some color back into her glamours, since black has been so dominant for most of Shadowbringers. My natural starting point for any “glamour cycle” is Ninja, and I had extra incentive to […]

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 […]

Bozja Citadel Hopes & Speculation

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a more general post about FFXIV, but with my glamours all in a pretty good spot and no new dungeon sets for Shadowbringers to collect (for now), I’m thinking a lot about what Patch 5.2 will bring when it hits in late February. While, for once, I’m […]

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 […]
