Glamour Spotlight: Maiming DPS #6

In something of a break from my normal trend, I’ve been saving a lot of my job quests while leveling in Stormblood until near the end of the process. So, while my Dragoon is nearly 70 as of writing (and probably will be by the time this is up on the site), I hadn’t actually […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #33

Since wrapping up the Stormblood Main Scenario, I’ve been continually working on a new Ninja glamour using the new Scion Traveler’s gear. While I resisted using the set originally because of some issues with my tail clipping nemesis, I couldn’t help but want to the more I thought on the set being so perfect for […]

Stormblood Retrospective: Eureka (Part Two)

We’re just a few months away from the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s third expansion, Shadowbringers, but before that we’ll have the end of its second, Stormblood. The final chapter of the Main Scenario Quest has come and gone, paving the way for the game’s next major release. As I did before at the end […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #24

I couldn’t have planned a sudden, renewed interest in playing Bard any better than for it to have come up right before the recent Tokyo FanFest, where Dancer was announced, surprisingly, as FFXIV‘s next Ranged DPS class. As is so often the case with these sorts of things, it all started because of a need […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #37

Toward the end of the push to finish my Kasasagi Eureka, I ended up on White Mage of all things. My S.O. and I were trying to see how well we could duo higher end enemies, since the instance we were in wasn’t doing much to actively pop NMs on the right side of Hydatos. […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #32

I took my sweet time finishing up with Eureka Hydatos. After going hard at finishing Eureka Pagos back when, I took a much more laid back approach to Eureka Pyros, and chose to do the same for the final chapter. This worked out rather well, as it turns out, as it gave my S.O. the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #34

Things have been a little hectic since my last post, so I’m only just now getting around to doing a write-up for another glamour I did around the same time—this one for Monk. I want to keep my options open going into Shadowbringers, as I’ve gotten a bit disillusioned with Ninja’s gameplay design, and I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #3

After the last couple months, which had me run through the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series leading up to the release of Kingdom Hearts III, diving into Dragon Age: Inquisition for two 100-hour playthroughs, and then (naturally) playing through Kingdom Hearts III, I’m finally at a point where I’m getting back into FFXIV in a more direct way. I’ve started getting […]

Glamour Spotlight: Blue Mage #1

Without a doubt, my favorite thing about Blue Mage so far has been its aesthetics. If there’s one thing the dev team can do and do well in FFXIV, i’ts nail how a job looks and feels, from its job-specific gear to its emotes and audiovisual effects. That’s true for Blue Mage in much the […]
