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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #3 (Looking Back)

I’ve been working on a new Ninja glamour for most of this week, since I didn’t like how the purple-gold particle effects on the new Hyperconductive Kannagi clashed with the Metallic Silver on my old one. The task has actually proven to be far more difficult than I would have anticipated. I have a look […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #3

Of all the new gearsets added to the game with Heavensward’s initial 3.0 patch, I’d have to say that The Aery got some of the best. The various Orthodox sets for the Disciples of War are simply lovely (the caster and healer sets—most notably the gloves—are nice, too, but I’m not really a fan of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #3 (Looking Back)

When I first picked up FFXIV, I really had no idea what classes I was going to play. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I nearly always play rogue archetypes in RPGs, and at launch, A Realm Reborn didn’t really have one of those. As a result, I ended up experimenting with all of the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #2

I sat down today with the intention to write about my frustrations with the Eikon Leather Corselet of Casting, and even took a crying screenshot to accompany that: I made the left side Eikon Leather/Cloth gear a few days ago to get my BLM in a better spot for Expert Roulettes, since I’m frequently running […]
