Glamour Spotlight: Healers #39

After playing FFXIV for over six years now, with my subscription having never lapsed in that time, it’s a little hard to fathom that I very nearly quit during the early days of Patch 2.0, A Realm Reborn, never to return. One of the things that had kept me from checking out the original FFXIV […]

Glamour Spotlight: Alchemist #2

Last but certainly not least of my three crafting specialists is Alchemist. ALC has always been Alahra’s crafter “main,” but it’s also one of the ones I use the least, since I find crafting consumables to be too tedious when it comes to making gil. Even so, I’ve largely kept it as a specialist for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Goldsmith #1

It feels like ages ago now, but in the pre-5.1 world, I was at one point planning to post my specialist glamours for Alchemist, Goldsmith, and Weaver. I got around to one of them before I found myself without internet for a few days, and once I was back online, I wanted to focus on […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #1

One of the first things I did at the start of Shadowbringers was take Lynahra’s Gunbreaker to 70, since I wasn’t particularly interested in either new class for Alahra, but my SO wanted to level Dancer for her main. After we got through to 70, we focused on the Main Scenario for quite some time, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #35

I’ve spent much of Shadowbringers as a Dark Knight main so far, and truth be told, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I’ve really taken to tanking with the redesigns for the expansion and finding the role to be more fun than damage dealing overall. However, I’m always going to have a soft spot […]

Patch 5.1 First Impressions & Glamour Spotlight: Striking #35

I’ve had a bit of time with Patch 5.1 so far, and I have to say I’m generally impressed. Following up the incredible Shadowbringers 5.0 launch, I was both excited for the next major patch and a little nervous. The new expansion launch was so good that I wasn’t sure the next installment could ever […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #27

I got Dancer to 80 some time ago now, but at the time I was pretty burnt out on the job and didn’t sit down to create a new glamour for it in celebration. Doing so would have been quite the challenge, since the base form of Dancer’s Artifact Armor doesn’t match much of anything […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dark Knight #3

As will come as no surprise, switching over to a tank main for Shadowbringers has given me all sorts of trouble with glamours. Alahra has only rarely looked right in heavier armor to me, and my struggles with creating armored tank glamours are well documented across the site. Most of the time, that means my […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #4

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for me in FFXIV. As the last major task to round out my initial run of gear set galleries for Shadowbringers, I’ve been working pretty steadily on Dragoon. As far back as A Realm Reborn, I’ve nearly always leveled Dragoon close to last (if not last) during each […]

Glamour Spotlight: Weaver #1

Now that we have a slightly narrower release window for Patch 5.1 of Shadowbringers—late October—I don’t feel like I have to scramble quite so hurriedly to have all of the 5.0 dungeon gear set galleries up on the site in time. That means I can get back to sprinkling in some glamours I’ve been sitting […]
