Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #17

So, I still don’t have Ninja to 70 yet (that should be done tonight or tomorrow), but the good news is, that’s in part because I got entirely distracted today and made a new glamour. Since I’ve been progressing through the Main Scenario with my partner, I’ve been spending my playtime during the day mostly leveling Samurai, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #16 & Veteran Rewards: Leonhart Attire

I’m a bit late to the party due to having bonus subscription time from adding a PS4 license to my account awhile back (during last summer’s Amazon promotion), but yesterday, I finally hit the last Veteran Reward tier. I’d been sitting on a Time Card to bump my account to the tier for over a month now, chomping […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #15 (Just for Fun)

If you follow me on Twitter (if you don’t, why don’t you?), you’ve probably guessed I’m at least a little obsessed with Nier: Automata. I got the game mostly on a whim. Things are pretty slow on the FFXIV front now with the expansion pack coming to a close and the handful of goals I’ve […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #14

I’ve been thinking about dabbling in Machinist lately, even if it’s pretty low on my Scripture gear priorities, after Striking gear (which will be finished this week) and Casting gear (which was half finished before I switched priorities because of Samurai hype). I’m not sure yet whether I’ll gear a tank and healer before I hit […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #13

Lately I’ve been dabbling in Bard again for my occasional Frontlines Roulette, just for a change of pace. This works well for me, since I don’t play Bard often in PvE at all—I can leave my PvP actions on my hotbars and not inadvertently try to Overwhelm a boss in PvE the next time I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #12

I’m going to be out of town the middle of this week, which means Wednesday’s post is going to be written in advance. And as it happens, I put together a glamour over the weekend that’s actually going to get me two posts, since it uses job-specific gear. I’m going to show off the non-specific […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #10

Sometimes, a piece comes along that I like but I have trouble using. Often, this is because I can’t find the right things in combination with it, and with gear additions being on something of a schedule, it can sometimes take a months or a year before I get around to making a glamour around […]

Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #2

Every now and then, it feels like the Duty Roulette gets kind of “stuck” on particular dungeons for me. Over the last week, I’ve gotten Sohr Khai several times for the Level 60 one, including yesterday. During that most recent run, one of the party members said something about the Wrangler’s set, which reminded me […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #9 (Looking Back)

Back in the dark days before we were blessed from on high with dyeable Allagan replicas, we had to deal with at times frustrating color choices on the original Allagan gear (the High Allagan gear, in general, was much better). When it comes to the Physical DPS Allagan sets in particular, there are some oddities […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #8

I’m not really sure why it always seems to happen this way, but my glamours for Bard and Machinist are often affected by drops from dungeons and the like. It’s pretty rare that I use Tomestone or other currency gear for them, with the lion’s share centering around new dungeon drops. Maybe it’s just luck […]
