Glamour Spotlight: White Mage #1

I sat down not long after I finished reviewing the Eastern Socialite’s Attire to create a glamour around the Cheongsam. I wanted to work out something for Red Mage, since I thought the gown would work rather well for an elegant fencer, and my last glamour wasn’t exactly Alahra’s normal style. I began to play […]

Fantasia Spotlight #7: Male Miqo’te (Monk)

When I first started taking Fantasia requests from Patreon, I was certain one of the first ones I did would be for a male miqo’te. As it’s turned out, it took a full 7 fantasias (and months) to get to that point, but that time is finally here. I’ve been anticipating this one for so […]

Eureka Pyros First Impressions

This time around, I’ve been able to dive into FFXIV‘s latest Eureka chapter, Pyros, from the get-go. Various things kept me from being able to really collect proper first impressions for Pagos, which was initially such a mess that it turned out I didn’t miss a whole lot. Pagos was quickly patched in some pretty […]

New Character & Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #7

I’ve been a role-player for most of my life now, having gotten started with Dungeons & Dragons in my pre-teen years. Although I’ve been creating characters with role-playing in mind ever since, I’ve never much been one to create characters for their own sake. I more or less only create when needed—for a new tabletop […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #37

Like I mentioned last time, I’m finally getting around to picking up the Bonewicca glamour gear from Swallow’s Compass, and along with the Shadow’s Chestpiece, I also picked up the Whisperer’s Jacket. With its fancy “wings,” the Jacket is probably one of the most unique we’ve seen in FFXIV so far, and I assumed that meant I’d […]

Glamour Spotlight: Red Mage #7

On the whole, Stormblood has honestly presented me with a pretty huge glamour conundrum. We’re roughly two-thirds of the way through the expansion (or halfway, if the possibility of a 4.6/4.7 mentioned by Yoshida comes to fruition), and I’ve gotten almost no new glamour staples. With very few exceptions, I’ve disliked almost every new set that we’ve […]

Glamour Spotlight: Samurai #1

I’ve been saying I’m going to do something with the Anemos Myochin Haori for ages now and getting distracted by other glamour ideas for just as long. Full-body robes like the Haori are always less fun to glamour with, since they obscure so many of the other choices you can make for other slots, which […]

Glamour Spotlight: Black Mage #3

At this point, it’s pretty safe to say that glamour potential alone is going to keep me interested in Eureka for some time to come, as I keep getting ideas for ways to use the dyeable Artifact Armor sets. While I had planned to finish off the Anemos Storyteller’s set for Bard, the realization that […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #31

With several of my recent glamours for Alahra all featuring plenty of Pure White, I’ve definitely hit that point where I’m going to have to get something white put together for everything. It’s often more difficult to do so for jobs I don’t play as often, since I have less familiarity with the sorts of things […]
