Glamour Tweaks and Miscellany

It’s funny to me, but in a way, maintaining this blog has started to affect my glamour habits. In some ways I’ve become more picky, and in others, I think I’ve gotten a bit more lax than I used to be. When it comes to Ninja, I’m pickier than ever, because updating my Ninja glamour here […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #4

So I still haven’t gotten my Wrangler’s body from the new Expert dungeons, but I inadvertently found a look to hold me over until I do that manages to have what I imagine will be some of the same flair to it.

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #3

A little while ago, I made Eikon Cloth/Leather Aiming gear, which meant Bard and Machinst were back to sharing gear, and so I needed a new glamour that would work for both of them, since I’m not really settled on which one I enjoy more. I’ve been trying to collect the whole Wrangler’s set—which is […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gatherers

My next major project is a new Bard/Machinst glamour, but I’m at the mercy of the Random Number Generator as to when I pick up the various pieces of the Wrangler’s set from the new dungeons so I can play around with them. In the mean time, I’ve been somewhat lazily working on my 240 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #6

I’ve found myself wholly uninterested in healing since the launch of 3.3. That’s been a bit of an issue, since I need a lot of Esoterics for the latest Anima weapon stage, and DPS queues are usually a bit long (nothing insurmountable, but certainly not conducive to rapid tomestone acquisition). I decided to re-glamour to see if […]

Many of you are no doubt already aware of the Amazon promotion going on, which is the North American opportunity to pick up the maid and butler outfits from the Japanese 7-11 Promotion that happened some time ago. I finally got my codes and the items to go with them this morning so I wanted to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #2

First off, I am in love with crafting again. 3.3 brought a lot of much-needed changes to the overall endgame for crafters and gatherers. Red Scrips are now useful but not mandatory, as there are numerous paths to get gear for both classes, and there are also numerous paths to get materials for making the new gear. The main materials […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #5

Before I put together my most recent Ninja glamour, I actually did one for tanks, but with all the hype over 3.3, I hadn’t got around to showcasing it. Glamour Components Head: (none) | Body: Mythril Cuirass (Wine Red Dye) | Hands: Dravanian Gauntlets of Fending | Legs: Adamantite Chain Hose of Fending | Feet: Dravanian Greaves of Fending I’d been trying to get […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #4

Amid all my excitement about the 3.3 Patch Notes, I actually did manage to do some glamour work over the weekend heading into the patch. Most importantly, I settled on a new Ninja glamour, and after going through the 3.3 Main Scenario, I’m quite happy with it. Glamour Components Head: (none) | Body: Replica Allagan Cuirass of Striking […]
