Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #8 (All Saints’ Wake 2016)

So like I said last time, I’ve been fiddling around with Halloween-themed glamours for All Saints’ Wake this year. The year we got the Witch’s stuff, I ran around in it on Scholar for most of the event and honestly had a lot of fun, so I thought I’d go the extra mile this year […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #6

The best thing about being Maelstrom is that we get the best looking Grand Company gear. Outside of a couple specific examples (such as some of the Flame Elite’s stuff), the Maelstrom gear is almost always the best of any given selection of Company items. I’m not sure what it is, in most cases: I […]

Stormblood Announcement & Glamour Spotlight: Healers #12

We did get new info on Stormblood, FFXIV’s next expansion today, including confirmation that the expansion will focus on Ala Mihgo and the Garleans and that we’ll be getting “multiple” new jobs, one of which seems to be Red Mage, judging by Yoshida sporting a Scarlet Witch t-shirt on stage (much like he wore a Batman shirt […]

FanFest Predictions!

I’m gonna go ahead and throw myself under the bus here and give my predictions (most of which, I’m sure, will be incredibly wrong) for what we’ll learn about FFXIV’s 4.0 Expansion at the upcoming Fan Festivals. What info will be given at each one is hard to know, but I think we can anticipate […]

Fashion Favorites: Drachen Armor

My Dragoon glamour is basically nonexistent right now: I’ve been getting lucky with drops for it from the new 3.4 dungeons, and since I basically put no effort into gearing it, all of them have been fairly significant upgrades. At times like this, I often don’t keep my glamour fully attached to the new pieces […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #7

I’ve had my eye on the Ninja Scripture gear ever since it was first shown off a couple Producer Live Letters ago. It’s generally been pretty rare that we get Scouting gear that looks fitting for infiltration and other stealth-oriented pursuits, with the general thematic trend for Scouting gear usually falling more on the “daring […]

Altventure #2: Catching Up

It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these. I meant to do one, oh, gosh, a couple months ago, and I never got around to it. Not long after my first post in the series, I kept working on Lynahra, with MSQ forays into the Tam-Tara Deepcroft… …and Copperbell Mines… …which was enough to get her […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #6

I’m at a really strange place with my Ninja glamour right now. Eastern gear is fairly rare for Ninja, as I’ve discussed before, so there’s a part of me that very much wants to use the Lady’s Togi (even if it’s not really a direct fit culturally for Ninja). I also love the overall profile of it, […]

Selfie Spotlight: Scintillant Circlet of Scouting

I am experimenting with a new Ninja glamour centered around the lovely Lady’s Togi, but I’m not yet convinced I’m going to keep it, so I don’t think it’s worthy of a full post just yet. That being said, I found a nice surprise last night while I was working on it in the new […]

Far Eastern Garb!

We got news of new Mog Station items coming from the 3.4 Patch Notes, and as expected, they were the formerly Chinese-exclusive items from that version of the game. Naturally, I picked them up when I was able to (though when I first tried this morning, the item shop was undergoing maintenance, so I had […]
