Fashion Frustrations: Replica Heavy Allagan Cuisses+Flanchard

At the same time that I got the Replica stuff I wanted for Ninja, I picked up two other long-running favorites, the Heavy Allagan Cuisses and Flanchard: Like the Replicas for Ninja and Monk, the original Allagan Cuisses and Flanchard had long been glamour staples for my tanks during 2.x. The Flanchard in particular was […]

Fashion Favorites: Allagan Gauntlets of Striking

I’m back! It’s been a really long time since I’ve been so sick as to be largely bed-ridden. I started going through FFXIV withdraw after awhile there. I don’t have any new glamours to share just yet, so instead I’m going to talk about one of the new, Patch 3.2 things I picked up last week […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #4

I mentioned last time that I had a separate look for Scholar, and I’ve actually grown so fond of it that I’m playing White Mage less. It’s sort of weird, to me, as I had gotten rather bored with SCH post-60, and for some time now I’ve been enjoying WHM much more. The more I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #3

It’s that time again (and it will probably be that time for the next month—there’s so much I want to use in 3.2 x.x). It took awhile to find a look I was happy with for the Replica High Allagan Pantaloons, but I finally worked it out with a little help (and a Pure White […]

Glamour Spotlight Double Feature: Dark Knight & Paladin | One Month Lookback

I don’t have any major glamour updates yet. I’m mid-process for healer after having made the Replica High Allagan Pantaloons, though, and I’m also considering some changes to my Ninja look after making the Eikon Cloth Sleeves and Eikon Leather Thighboots. But these are slow, incremental processes, especially in the case of Ninja—since it’s my main […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #2

There is a ton of great new stuff in 3.2 that I’m still digesting and acquiring, but one thing that didn’t take too much for me to get my hands on is the new Uraeus Coat. I knew I wanted to use it for either my healers or my Black Mage, and after trying it […]

Fashion Frustrations: Wild Rose Attire

A common problem for my glamour endeavors tends to be sets we get that are tied to other Final Fantasy titles: the Guardian Corps Attire (from FFXIII), your Strife Attire (from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children), and so on. Elements of sets like these are often so iconic that it can be rather difficult to use individual pieces […]

Patch 3.2 Glamour Preview and Speculation

As I suspected, we got the Preliminary Patch Notes for 3.2 today, which means we’ve got a ton of info about what’s coming for glamours on Tuesday! We’ve also gotten a ton of other tidbits over the past few weeks, and overall, I think there is a lot to look forward to. First and foremost for most […]

Glamour Spotlight: DoH Specializations

Though I wasn’t originally going to showcase my main crafting classes, I’m happy enough with them that I think they’re worth putting up. As I’ve mentioned before, I usually avoid using more than two pieces of a given set in one look, as doing any more than that sort of takes away from the whole “puzzle-solving” […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dark Knight

After my last post, I ended up bored enough over the weekend to run a few Frontlines Roulettes, which got me enough Wolf Marks to pick up the Lynxfang Cuirass. That meant I needed to sit down and hash out a way to use it, as running around like this… …wasn’t going to last forever, […]
