Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #36

After putting together my last glamour for Bard and Machinist and swiftly growing quite fond of it, I suppose I couldn’t help but be a little curious about the Anemos Jacket again. Like I mentioned before, I’ve never much liked how this stripped down version of the jacket dyes, with a particular dislike for the […]

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, […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Fending

It’s been an intense, set gallery spamming ride here on Fashion Ninjutsu ever since I made the decision to document all of the expansion’s new dungeon gear. While there are still around twelve sets left to post, today’s gallery of the Fending gear from Malikah’s Well means three classes of armor are now finished (for […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Armor of Fending

One of the first sets that really got my attention in Shadowbringers, the Voeburtite Armor of Fending offers glamour options in a style we don’t often see for tanks in FFXIV: light armor. Armored coats have been the norm for tank gear for much of FFXIV‘s history at this point, with even things like breastplates […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Armor of Fending

Tank armor is my nemesis in FFXIV, but I have to admit a certain fondness for the Forgiven’s armor set from Shadowbringers. The original Demon Armor from World of Darkness was one of the few pieces of heavy armor I wore back in A Realm Reborn (and I wore the Chromite version from Stormblood for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #35

My distaste for FFXIV‘s heavy armor is well-documented by this point, but it’s been rearing its head more readily ever since I took up Dark Knight as my de facto main in Shadowbringers. Outside of the new Voeburtite Jacket, the expansion hasn’t added much in the way of new armor that fits my preferred tank […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Fending

One of my favorite round of gear sets from the initial launch of Shadowbringers has to be the Ravel Keeper’s gear. In general, FFXIV doesn’t offer a lot in the way of “tribal” aesthetics, but so far each expansion has had at least one dungeon that offers something in that vein. (In Heavensward, we had […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #34 (Level 80 Update)

I finally hit 80 and finished the Main Scenario Quest for Shadowbringers earlier this week. I’m still working through everything I want to say about that (which could very well be a lot), but in the meantime, it was time to iterate on my Dark Knight glamour since I always like to do so after […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Armor of Fending

The new Lakeland Armor of Fending in Shadowbringers is, like the other sets of Lakeland gear, a recolor. This one is somewhat unique in that its original source is not another dungeon, but rather a set of crafted leveling gear originally designed for Scouting and Striking DPS classes (the level 66 “white” gear from Stormblood, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #33

Alahra’s appearance is a huge part of FFXIV to me, and that fact hit me in the face like a brick on the first day of Early Access that I sat down to play the new Main Scenario. As I always do, I began the journey on Ninja, Alahra’s main job, rocking a Jet Black […]
