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 […]

Patch 3.2 Retrospective/3.3 Anticipation

Retrospective is probably the wrong word to use here (at least in a dictionary sense, since the patch isn’t over yet), but we just got our first Live Letter preview for Patch 3.3, with the patch itself likely coming sometime within the next month (May 31st or June 7th, if I had to gamble). Patch […]

Fashion Frustrations: Iga Ningi

For almost two weeks now, I’ve actually had a completed Ninja glamour that I never shared on here because I just wasn’t happy with it. It honestly looked great, but there was something bothering me about it that I couldn’t put my finger on. I unfortunately only have one screenshot of it (because I dismantled it […]

Ironworks Engineer’s Attire (and the Hunt for Biggs and Wedge)

I was surprised but excited to see that we got some new Mog Station goodies yesterday, including both Cid’s Attire and the Ironworks Engineer’s set. Unfortunately, Cid’s gear (and his cool goggles) are gender-locked, but that’s not particularly surprising given that all of the gear for major FFXIV NPCs has been. The Ironworks Engineer’s Attire […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #1

I got the Fists of the Sephirot not long after I finished my last Monk glamour, which they didn’t really work with. I really like how they look, though, so I started fiddling around with ways to build a glamour around them. At first, I went the Replica Allagan route, coloring the Cuirass and the Sollerets […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scholar #1

I’m considering switching over to Scholar for raiding, so I decided a few days ago to use at least some piece of Scholar Artifact Armor for my healer glamour. That has its downsides, of course, since all of my healer gear is currently shared, but since I likely won’t mess around on the other healers as […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #3

I’m still hard at work trying to settle my glamours for Ninja, Bard/Machinist, and my healers, but I did end up putting together a look for Ninja yesterday before raid. I’m already pretty sure I’m not going to keep it, as the style just feels a little wrong for Alahra. But I do like the […]

Placeholders: Healer/Ranged DPS/Scouting DPS

Lately, it seems I spend a larger chunk of my playtime than I normally do working on glamours. After I (thought I) finished my Ninja glamour at the end of last week, I devoted most of my weekend to fiddling with a look for my Scholar, with the intent of using the Savant’s Culottes or […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #2

I’ve actually been working on this glamour for awhile now, and it wasn’t until just before I went out of town at the beginning of this week that I got it to a point of satisfaction. As I mentioned last time, I needed something new to work with my upgraded Anima weapon, and things just […]
