Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Garb of Aiming

I’ve had the worst of luck when it comes to weapon drops to go along with the new Voeburtite sets from Shadowbringers, but I did finally manage to snag one to go along with the few full sets that I’ve accumulated. As it happens, the Voeburtite Garb of Aiming is probably my favorite of the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Garb of Aiming

The Plague Bringer’s Coat from Heavensward has remained a popular choice for glamour, which makes it surprising that it took so very long for the model to find a place for a recolor in FFXIV. In Shadowbringers, most of the set’s models show up again as part of the new Lakeland Garb of Aiming for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #26 | Farewell to Stormblood

As the end of Stormblood drew near, I kept going back to the Dancer glamour I put together a little while ago, flummoxed by how quickly it went from perfect to way too heavy in my mind. For much of the last few weeks, I’ve been laser-focused on completing various end of the expansion goals, […]

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: 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: Ranged DPS #23

Though this post is arriving a little bit after the fact, January 1st marked the second anniversary of my in-game wedding with my partner. We actually met outside of FFXIV, though she used to play and eventually decided to join me on the game. Several months later, we hitched our characters on New Year’s Day—after […]

Glamour Spotlight: Disciple of War #1

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) had an interesting request, something of a challenge: a glamour that had a total item level no larger than 100, which got me to look at lower level gear in a new light. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. […]

New Character & Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #7

I’ve been a role-player for most of my life now, having gotten started with Dungeons & Dragons in my pre-teen years. Although I’ve been creating characters with role-playing in mind ever since, I’ve never much been one to create characters for their own sake. I more or less only create when needed—for a new tabletop […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #22

It feels like so long ago that we approached the end of Heavensward, where we got a set of dungeon gear that I can’t recall seeing anyone use as a glamour in the year and a half since Patch 3.5 was released. This often happens with sets that lean pretty hard toward styles that are […]

Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #6

I’ve been flirting with cowboy thematics in my Machinist glamours for a really long time now (more or less as long as I’ve been blogging here). My very first attempt didn’t last me all that long, since I didn’t have any really thematically appropriate body pieces to work with the Serpentskin Fringe Boots that I’m so […]
