FFXIV Online Shop Review: Oracle’s Attire

My partial sojourn from FFXIV continues. I’m still online most days, but I’m not going to put myself through the ordeal of trying to get solid gearsets for every role like I did before Shadowbringers, when it gets so much easier to gear out existing jobs for the climb to 90 after the expansion drops […]

Glamour Spotlight: Roleplaying #2

Like I mentioned last time, much of my focus has shifted over to the roleplaying side of things in FFXIV, and that means I’m collecting gear far more slowly than I did in Fashion Ninjutsu’s earliest days. It doesn’t help that much of the gear design in Shadowbringers hasn’t been my cup of tea aesthetically […]

Glamour Spotlight: Roleplaying #1

It’s been a bit over a month since the Lady Errant’s Attire was added to the Online Shop, which also means that it’s been a month since I mentioned having a glamour put together for it on Twitter that I haven’t posted! But that changes today! I’ve long wanted a far wider range of gear […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #48

It’s been a weird time for me in FFXIV. Normally at this point in the patch cycle, I’d be neck-deep in relic items, working to complete my central three before the next stage (which I’d imagine will be sometime in May or June). I hit something of a snag, though: I disliked the Bozjan Southern […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #41

It’s been awhile, huh? I took some time away from writing in general through December and most of January for a variety of reasons, but I have still been playing FFXIV just about every day (though I’ve been diving into some other games, including the simply excellent Hades from Supergiant Games). I’ve been sitting on […]

FFXIV Online Shop Review: Collegiate Attire (Skirt & Slacks)

Unlike the last addition to FFXIV‘s cash shop, the two most recent new listings don’t come as too much of a surprise. First previewed some time ago for the game’s Korean version, the new Collegiate Attire sets (plural!) are based on designs that were part of an April Fools’ Day gag put together by the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #47

Happy Patch Week, everyone! We’re just a day into the patch, and I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves! For myself, I’ve cleared through the Main Scenario, finished the Eden storyline, and done the new Void quests, all of which I’ve really enjoyed! But I’m not really writing to talk about all of that today […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #37

Within the last week, I pushed Astrologian to level 80, leaving just one more job to finish before I finally receive my Amaro. Though I never imagined it would be the last of my jobs to go, all I need to do now is get Machinist to 80, and then I won’t have to level […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #40 / Scouting DPS #44

We’re probably a couple weeks from Patch 5.4 now, while there’s plenty to be excited about as with any new raid tier patch, I think the thing I’m looking forward to the most is the upcoming Monk rework. I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the job in FFXIV—it’s the job I would main if […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #45

Just as I thought things were finally calming down again, I found myself with very little time to do the things I’ve meant to be doing in game: mainly, leveling Astrologian and Machinist and farming Puppets’ Bunker for the YoRHa Type-53 Coat of Striking, which still eludes me. I’ve mostly been slowly picking at a […]
