Ninja Glamour Crisis!!!

We’re just two about two weeks from the launch of Patch 3.3, and with 3.3 will come new Main Scenario Quests, specifically dealing with the end of the Dragonsong War. And that leaves me with a little problem. During the 3.2 Main Scenario, my  Ninja glamour honestly felt a bit out of place, running around […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #4 (Looking Back)

I’m not really sure why, but I was thinking about one of my older caster glamours again. As I’ve mentioned before, I very nearly switched to Black Mage as my main class during the Second Coil tier (but by the end of it I did settle on Scholar). I’m not ashamed to admit that one […]

Altventure #1: Getting Started

I’ve been trying to get an alt character going in FFXIV since early 2.0, but I’ve never really had much success. Generally, I’ve always just preferred to work on my main—especially when there were classes I still needed to level on it and other things of that sort. About a year ago, prior to the […]

Current In-Game Goals

Following some raid group drama and and overall frustration with A6 (Savage), I decided last week to step down from raiding for awhile. I had intended to continue raiding with my group until they could find a suitable replacement, as I didn’t want to dead-end their progression. In the end, though, the group as a whole disbanded, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #4 (Looking Back)

As I’ve talked about before, I’m generally not much of a fan of FFXIV’s heavier armor—at least, not as someone who plays a miqo’te female. Very little of it really fits their smaller forms (female Au’ra have similar trouble, in my view). For various tank glamours over the past couple years, I’ve leaned a lot […]

Selfie Spotlight: Dravanian/Orthodox Tricornes

It’s been a really long time since I’ve looked at any headgear in the game, since I’ve been so busy redesigning all of my glamours every three days. I also had a lot of other work to do today, so with those two things in mind, I want to talk about how much I love […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #1

Slowly but surely, I’ve been working on getting all of my other crafting classes up to 6o since the beginning of Patch 3.2, mostly to make it easier to handle melding, since it’s a much bigger part of the game now. I hadn’t intended to figure out a glamour for them until I had everything […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #1

Life has a way of making me put my foot in my mouth. On Friday, I said I didn’t expect to play Bard much. Over the weekend, just about the only thing I did was run the Feast PvP on Bard. That’s actually great, since it gave me an excuse to finalize my Bard glamour […]

Works in Progress: BRD and MCH

Now that I have my Anima workload out of the way, I’m free to spend my Esoterics, at least for a little while, on the more important thing: glamours. I picked up a few pieces for Bard and Machinist yesterday that I’ve always liked—on the left, for Bard, the Aoidos’ Cloak, and on the right, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #3

As I’ve talked about before, I have a horrible time creating tank glamours. I’ve been uninterested in the previous look I had for Paladin for a little while, and not long ago, I got a set of the new High Mythrite gear for my tanks, which seemed like a decent time to re-evaluate my look […]
