FFXIV Online Shop Review: Collegiate Attire (Skirt & Slacks)

Unlike the last addition to FFXIV‘s cash shop, the two most recent new listings don’t come as too much of a surprise. First previewed some time ago for the game’s Korean version, the new Collegiate Attire sets (plural!) are based on designs that were part of an April Fools’ Day gag put together by the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #47

Happy Patch Week, everyone! We’re just a day into the patch, and I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves! For myself, I’ve cleared through the Main Scenario, finished the Eden storyline, and done the new Void quests, all of which I’ve really enjoyed! But I’m not really writing to talk about all of that today […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #37

Within the last week, I pushed Astrologian to level 80, leaving just one more job to finish before I finally receive my Amaro. Though I never imagined it would be the last of my jobs to go, all I need to do now is get Machinist to 80, and then I won’t have to level […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #40 / Scouting DPS #44

We’re probably a couple weeks from Patch 5.4 now, while there’s plenty to be excited about as with any new raid tier patch, I think the thing I’m looking forward to the most is the upcoming Monk rework. I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the job in FFXIV—it’s the job I would main if […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #45

Just as I thought things were finally calming down again, I found myself with very little time to do the things I’ve meant to be doing in game: mainly, leveling Astrologian and Machinist and farming Puppets’ Bunker for the YoRHa Type-53 Coat of Striking, which still eludes me. I’ve mostly been slowly picking at a […]

Gear Set Gallery: Aurum Attire of Magic

One thing I’ve always wished the dev team would do after each expansion is to go back and change all the gear from the previous expansion from class/job specific to Disciple of War/Disciple of Magic gear, as appropriate. This would do so much for glamour possibilities (and personally make my life so much easier since […]

Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #10

So far, I’ve managed to collect every body piece from Puppets’ Bunker except for the Striking body, which is the one I wanted most after the Fending coat. While I’ve not done any serious farming since the initial binge that got me the one I needed for Dark Knight, I’ve been running the raid since […]

Gear Set Gallery: Aurum Attire of Resilience

It’s been a pretty busy month in the world of FFXIV, with the launch of a new relic stage and a surprise addition to the Online Shop meaning I’m actually a little behind on various things I’ve been meaning to post for awhile! Among those are a few glamours that I’m putting finalizing touches on […]

FFXIV Online Shop Review: Scion Prodigy’s Suit

Every now and then, we get surprise additions to the Online Shop, and this recent update for this year’s special Make It Rain/All Saints’ Wake mash-up included one of those: the Scion Prodigy’s Suit, which amounts to a costume version of the gently gender-morphed outfit both Alphinaud and Alisaie wore in A Realm Reborn. While […]

First Impressions: Bozjan Southern Front / Blades of Gunnhildr Chapter Two

It’s been a long time coming, pushed back (understandably) by the global pandemic, but the first proper instance chapter of the Blades of Gunnhildr has finally arrived, added recently alongside Patch 5.35. Following on narratively from the story-rich first chapter, this one continues on with the strong focus on both characters and narrative Yasumi Matsuno […]
