Anima Questline Speculation

Last night, I got my Dark Knight Anima to the Hyperconductive (230) stage after a slowly mounting effort on the Unidentifiables needed for the base Anima (210) step. Luckily, Nothung is a pretty nice looking weapon, and it has a nice silver and black motif that fits right in with my current tank glamour. All I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #8

I’ll spare the lengthy introduction since I’ve already made two other posts on my tank glamour over the past week. I finally got it sorted out in a way that I’m happy with.   Glamour Components Head: (none) | Body: Augmented Hellfire Armor of Fending (Royal Blue Dye) | Hands: Replica High Allagan Gauntlets of Fending (Royal Blue Dye) | Legs: Valentione […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #6

I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I want with my tank glamour, but meanwhile I’ve starting working on Palace of the Dead with Machinist, since I want to give the class another go. With the pretty generous Tomestone rewards from the Palace, I’ve not actually run any Expert dungeons in about a week, […]

WIP: Tank Glamour, Episode II

I spent the better part of yesterday in front of the Summoning Bell and Market Board, fiddling with my new tank glamour. While I was doing Palace of the Dead, I picked up the Hellfire Armor of Fending, and since I was really trying to get my weapon, I didn’t stop to rework my entire glamour around […]

WIP: Tank Glamour

I’m out of town today, so I don’t have a full post. But I did get my Augmented Hellfire body for my tanks, and I also finished my Deep Dungeon weapon for DRK, so that means it’s new glamour time. I’m definitely going to stick with the Hellfire body—but boots in particular are giving me trouble. I […]

Deep Dungeon Impressions

Like many others, I’m sure, I spent most of my time in FFXIV yesterday running the first branch of the Deep Dungeon, the Palace of the Dead. I got through two full clears of levels 1 through 50, and I finally logged off with another partial clear. So far, I’m having a lot of fun. […]

Patch 3.3 Impressions/Review

We’ve had about six weeks of Patch 3.3 so far, and we’re on the eve of the first major content addition to it with 3.35 coming tomorrow. As we approach the Palace of the Dead, I’ve been reflecting on the patch as a whole quite a bit, and I have to say that, in general, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #2

I’ve done almost nothing with Dragoon since I hit 60 on it, to the point that my old glamour actually deteriorated as I picked up random upgrades from newer dungeons, and over the past couple of days that was starting to bug me. It probably didn’t help that I saw a body piece I remembered […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #7

Weeping City of Mhach has been incredibly kind to me so far. Outside of the first week, I’ve had fairly smooth runs each week, and I’ve also gotten a drop that I can use on one of my alternate jobs in a single run. It does help that I haven’t been incredibly picky, but the past two […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #5 (Looking Back)

I’ve talked before about the lack of Eastern gear in FFXIV, so it’s probably a little odd that I don’t use what we do have available to us more often. All around, one of the best sets that we’ve gotten has been the Amatsu attire, patterned after Iroha’s garb from FFXI, but it suffers from […]
