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: Lakeland Garb of Striking

At a glance, it can be a bit difficult to distinguish the Lakeland Garb of Striking from the corresponding Scouting set from the first dungeon of Shadowbringers. Both sets are based on the Bogatyr’s Garb from A Realm Reborn, and both have largely similar color schemes centered around shades of brown and black. The devil […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #12

As I mentioned it likely would be soon, my Monk is 80 now! I’m currently waffling between gearing it or gearing Dark Knight moving forward, but whether I focus on it as my main job for awhile or not, I’ll definitely be using it as my primary DPS until Ninja gets some much-needed changes. Even […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Scouting

Up next in the continuing series of gear set galleries for Shadowbringers is the Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Scouting. I’ve actually been sitting on this set for quite some time, but I’ve I didn’t come up with a priority system for posting these before I started this project (and I really should have!), so it’s […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #11

Way back in Stormblood, I had the idea that, in-character, Alahra was going to retire from adventuring after the events of the 4.0 Main Scenario. I wanted a way to explain a potential main job shift, since I wasn’t sure I was going to keep playing Ninja even back then. In her retirement, I imagined […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Garb of Aiming

Just in case the World of Darkness gear re-colors from Stormblood weren’t enough for your tastes, the final leveling dungeon of Shadowbringers offers another round of them! Each of the Forgiven sets from the dungeon re-uses the sets with a new color scheme (and a subtly different dyeing patterns), and the Forgiven’s Garb of Aiming […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Scouting

Way back in Heavensward, the developers of FFXIV made the decision to start limiting gear for crafters and gatherers so that it could only be worn by the appropriate classes. This had large implications for glamour, as all previous gear for Disciples of the Hand and Land could be equipped by all classes. Since that […]

Mog Station Review: Far Eastern Maiden’s Attire

Just as I was gearing up to go on my yearly vacation, Square Enix added a pair of new outfits to the Mog Station. As is often the case, the two new sets (one for males and one for females) originate from other versions of the game, so they’ve been lurking around in the game’s […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #38

Since finishing the level 80 grind on Ninja, my leveling projects have been kind of sporadic. I’ve started Dancer and Scholar both, while also putting a bit of time into Paladin and Samurai on the side. Of the four, I’ve surprisingly been enjoy Scholar the most, despite the wide variety of changes the job saw […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ninja #14

For the first time since the release of Ninja in Patch 2.4 of A Realm Reborn, it wasn’t the first job I took to the new level cap in the latest expansion. A lot of this came down to glamour, as I talked about a bit in my first glamour post of Shadowbringers, but the […]
