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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #5

I’ve now acquired most of the items from Eureka that I wanted for my level 70 jobs, which means my thoughts are now turning toward what jobs to level next, so that my crystals don’t go to waste. The three main contenders at the moment are Astrologian, Machinist, and White Mage, with the last two […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #21

Way back in the most ancient days of 2016, I lamented FFXIV‘s overall lack of Eastern-themed gear, something that’s gotten a lot better since we’ve entered the Stormblood era. So, when I got my other Patron Request for a Shrine Maiden glamour, I figured I’d have an easy time of it, since there was bound to be […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #20

Last week, we got our first real taste of rewards from the new Fashion Report. The first few weeks added things like an emote and furnishings to the boutique vendor, but given the Report’s glamour focus, it was pretty likely that we were going to see glamour gear at some point, too. If the total […]

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: Machinist #4

Machinist has always been one of those classes I’ve wanted to like but never fully clicked with, and while, so far, the Stormblood changes haven’t changed that for me, I’m still very curious about it. To satisfy that curiosity, I’ve been occasionally leveling it in FATEs and the like, and a little while back I finally got […]
