Stormblood Retrospective: Glamour

We’re now a couple 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 minor patch of the expansion is now live, paving the way for the game’s next major version in 5.0. As I did before at the end of Heavensward, I’m taking this […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #25

In the lead up to Stormblood, I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to perfect pre-expansion glamours for the two new jobs, Red Mage and Samurai. I never really got where I wanted to be with either of them, and as a result of all that trouble, I’ve spent hardly any time thinking about […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #4

Lynahra never hit 60 during Heavensward, mainly because I tried to cram all of her progress in at once in the last four or five months. I think she got to the Vault before I gave up and talked my SO into picking up Main Scenario potions so that we could just grind out the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #34

I’ve been fussing with my last Ninja glamour for a couple weeks now, trying to find that perfect mix of pieces that would let me take it into Shadowbringers without any complaints. As silly as it is, Alahra felt weird in cutscenes without her traditional skirt, something that didn’t work so well with the Scion […]

Mog Station Review: Minfilia’s Modish Attire

Things have been somewhat quiet on the Mog Station glamour front for some time, with the last new outfits being added all the way back in November. While there has been some expectation that we would see Lyse’s Ala Mhigan gown added to the Mog Station before Stormblood‘s end, there’s been no word on that […]

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 […]

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 […]
