Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #29

Since getting Monk to a decent gear level, I’ve been having so much fun on it that I haven’t even played Ninja at all, and it’s actually in the running to become my de facto main moving forward in Stormblood. Out of loyalty to Alahra’s canon, I’ll probably still be focusing on Ninja for Eureka, of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #9

Prior to the launch of Stormblood, after we had more or less complete information on all the various changes and additions to FFXIV‘s jobs, I was of two minds on Monk. On the one hand, I wasn’t a huge fan of the overall changes, especially how many of Monk’s abilities were losing Potency to accommodate the new […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #28

With Monks finally getting a cooldown reduction on Perfect Balance, something I’ve been hoping they would get for years now, getting Monk to 70 is probably the highest thing on my priority list now. I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I actually like Samurai for all of Stormblood, but I think all […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #11

In the last Spotlight, I mentioned wanting to get a new Ninja glamour going for the Main Scenario in Patch 4.2 as usual, but I wasn’t actually sure I was going to be able to get that done in time before Patch Day. It’s actually been quite some time since I’ve gotten any new gear […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #19

If the world were perfect, I would have been able to turn my failed attempt at a Dragoon glamour from last time into a Dragoon glamour today. But that didn’t happen, because my glamour habits are often unpredictable. Often when I’m idling and talking or doing something else on the side while I’m logged on, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #27

The tank in one of my recent Drowned City of Skalla runs had the Strife Vest glamoured, a piece of which I’ve always been rather fond, and since I’ve long exhausted most of of my available options for new pieces to work with, I decided to see if I could find a new use for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #31

Lately I’ve gotten pretty interested in exploring different styles of boots for Alahra, since Stormblood hasn’t really expanded our range of available thighboots very much.  The most notable new ones were the dyeable Tigerskin recolors of the Orthodox/Dravanian Thighboots from Heavensward, and outside of those we’ve gotten one or two new pairs (with the Gyuki Leather Highboots being […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #7: Healers

I mentioned in the intro to the Patreon-side version of the last spotlight that I had my idea for this month’s Patron Only special. And I did! That was true! I’ve been sitting on the Skallic Bottoms of Healing for weeks now (one of the few times I’ve actually gotten a piece I wanted from that […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #30

For whatever reason, it hit me recently that even though I had gotten Black Mage to 65 quite some time ago now, I never upgraded its gear set to incorporate the Casting gear from Bardam’s Mettle. Doing so, of course, meant I was highly encouraged to come up with a new glamour, since the gear […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #28

Being without a computer for a week really derailed most of my glamour plans and progress toward various in-game goals, and I went into the planning stage for my next post with no clue what I was going to post! The first thing that came to me was to rework Alahra’s Samurai glamour, but in […]
