Glamour Spotlight: Disciple of War #2

Way back when the developers first announced that they would be revamping the Main Scenario of A Realm Reborn and New Game Plus, I decided that I wanted to revisit the story once it was possible to do so. While I have leveled a second character through A Realm Reborn up to Heavensward, I did […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #46

Though I’ve made a handful of Mog Station items glamour staples over the past few years, it’s actually been pretty rare that I get much use out of the various sets I pick up. Often, the sets made available through the cash shop just aren’t my thing, whether because of a lack of interest in […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #42

In expansions past, I normally plotted out all of my weekly Tomestone purchases sometime near the beginning of each new tier, with an eye toward kitting out one DPS, one tank, and one healer, plus another DPS of my choice (depending on how the individual items I want each tier add up). Over the course […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #43

I’ve been slowly working on getting Gunbreaker to 80 for ages now, almost exclusively through the occasional Leveling or 50/60/70 Roulette. Since Lynahra had the honor of taking the job through the Main Scenario, I hadn’t really wanted to take the job through all of the dungeons again on Alahra, and Roulettes were a pretty […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #9

Balmung completed the New Nest of the Firmament not too long ago, which opened up the next series of quests in the ongoing storyline (in addition to adding some absolutely beautiful new music for the area). Since I’ve been saving crafter leveling for the final line Beast Tribe Quests for this expansion, I’ve still got […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #34

Most of the time when I sit down to work out a new glamour, I like to settle on a body piece first, which I’d imagine is a fairly common practice. Body pieces are the main selling point of just about any look, so that shouldn’t be surprising, of course. But sometimes, that habit ends […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #41

Outside of expansion launches and relic binges, I’ve long played FFXIV pretty casually, doing a roulette or three a day and otherwise doing other things. I still like to idle on the game, though—I do a lot of chatting and picture taking even if I’m not playing heavily at any given period of time. With […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #17

Though I couldn’t tell you why, I’ve always loved tonfa as a weapon for martial artists in games (with a particular favorite tonfa user being Talim from Soul Calibur), so I was quite stoked to pick up Monk’s new relic tonfa for Shadowbringers. Though I didn’t get them straight away (Dark Knight and Ninja naturally […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #45

I’ve been working on White Mage off and on, slowly but surely inching it up toward level 80 two or three dungeon runs at a time, once a week or so. It’s been somewhat of a slow process, but one I need to take slowly. I’ve never been especially great at White Mage (for most […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #42

It didn’t take long after finishing the write-up for my Honeshirazu glamour that I found the inspiration I needed to also do one for Woeborn. I’d been struggling to find a central body piece to work around that matched the weapon because, given Woeborn’s color scheme, it’s more or less a perfect fit for Lynxliege/Lynxfang […]
