Stormblood Retrospective: Final Thoughts

My Warrior of Light, Alahra, contemplates what is to come before the Crystal Tower.

We’re mere days away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, and we’ve reached the end of its second, Stormblood, with the recently released launch trailer shifting all the community’s energy toward the next expansion. As I did at the end of Heavensward, I’ve been taking this time before Shadowbringers to look back at Stormblood, with emphasis on […]

Stormblood Retrospective: Beast Tribe Quests

We’re now mere weeks away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, and we’ve reached the end of its second, Stormblood. The game’s next major version of 5.0 is nearly upon us. As I did before at the end of Heavensward, I’m taking this time before the expansion to look back at some aspects of Stormblood, with emphasis on […]

Glamour Roundup: The End of Stormblood

As we approached the end of Heavensward, I finalized a glamour for each of the game’s main armor types in Pure White, using some of my favorite pieces from the expansion. Around the same time, I used my complete lack of skill in image editing to cobble together a new header for the site, featuring […]

Mog Station Review: Far Eastern Schoolgirl’s Attire

It hasn’t been all that long since the last Mog Station Review, but in a surprising move, Square-Enix updated the Mog Station this last week with a pair of new outfits. Originating as “exclusives” for the Chinese version of the game and first announced just a matter of weeks ago, both the Far Eastern Schoolboy’s […]

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, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #25

In the lead up to Stormblood, I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to perfect pre-expansion glamours for the two new jobs, Red Mage and Samurai. I never really got where I wanted to be with either of them, and as a result of all that trouble, I’ve spent hardly any time thinking about […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #4

Lynahra never hit 60 during Heavensward, mainly because I tried to cram all of her progress in at once in the last four or five months. I think she got to the Vault before I gave up and talked my SO into picking up Main Scenario potions so that we could just grind out the […]

Stormblood Retrospective: The Main Scenario

We’re now less than two months away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, but before that we’ll have the end of its second, Stormblood. The final minor patch of the expansion is now live, paving the way for the game’s next major version in 5.0. As I did before at the end of Heavensward, I’m taking […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #34

I’ve been fussing with my last Ninja glamour for a couple weeks now, trying to find that perfect mix of pieces that would let me take it into Shadowbringers without any complaints. As silly as it is, Alahra felt weird in cutscenes without her traditional skirt, something that didn’t work so well with the Scion […]
