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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #1

After a long and arduously frustrating journey, I finally got Dragoon to level 60 over the weekend. The class has never really “clicked” with me much at end-game. I found its rigid rotation to be very limiting and irritating at level 50, and leveling it up to 60 just kept making the problem worse, so it took […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #2 (Looking Back)

While I have an idea for a new Monk glamour, I need a dungeon drop to make it happen, which is going to take some work on my part. So while I can’t put that one together yet, I was thinking back to my early Heavensward look, and I’m fond enough of it that I […]

Veteran Rewards: Tantalus Attire

The Tantalus Attire (based on the apparel of FFIX’s Zidane) has been in the game’s files for some time now, but as of yesterday, it’s officially possible to hit the 1080 days of subscription time required to receive it. I’m sure a lot of folks aren’t quite there yet (especially since the 3 and 6-month […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #1 (Looking Back)

Though I’ve had a lot of fun with all the new glamour options in Heavensward, every now and then I occasionally miss some of my old looks. Since I don’t have any new glamours or any particular pieces of gear I feel like talking about today, I thought I’d take a look at one of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #2

I don’t really play Bard or Machinist anymore (I was one of the many casualties in the Gauss Barrel/Wanderer’s Minuet war), so I haven’t seriously thought about glamour for either one of them in a long time. One thing that’s always tickled my fancy in a theoretical sense is a sort of “gun bunny” glamour, though, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #5

There was a period in ARR where I used Metallic Silver Dye for pretty much all of my glamours. Those are just a few examples I found paging through my screenshot collection. Around the same time, my Monk glamour was also Metallic Silver, as was my healer glamour, which covered all of the roles. I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #2

After a little bit of experimentation, I finally managed to work out a Ninja glamour that I liked better than my older one. It turns out that sticking to Pure White on the body was the main stumbling block, and once I freed myself of that restriction, the glamour came together pretty naturally.   Glamour […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gatherers

About a week ago, I got the urge to work on my Botanist as a way to supplement my in-game income. I never really had much of a glamour for it pre-expansion, as even though it was level 50, I only very rarely used it. But over the weekend, after hitting level 53 and making the […]
