Fashion Frustrations: Sudarshana Chakras Anemos

The Antiquated Pacifist’s Vest proved to have a lot of longevity for Alahra, allowing my last Monk glamour to survive for the full month leading up to Eureka’s launch. I knew the ultimate goal was to create a version of the look in white once I had the dyeable version, much as it is with […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #29

Since getting Monk to a decent gear level, I’ve been having so much fun on it that I haven’t even played Ninja at all, and it’s actually in the running to become my de facto main moving forward in Stormblood. Out of loyalty to Alahra’s canon, I’ll probably still be focusing on Ninja for Eureka, of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #9

Prior to the launch of Stormblood, after we had more or less complete information on all the various changes and additions to FFXIV‘s jobs, I was of two minds on Monk. On the one hand, I wasn’t a huge fan of the overall changes, especially how many of Monk’s abilities were losing Potency to accommodate the new […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #28

With Monks finally getting a cooldown reduction on Perfect Balance, something I’ve been hoping they would get for years now, getting Monk to 70 is probably the highest thing on my priority list now. I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I actually like Samurai for all of Stormblood, but I think all […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #8

I’ve been very lazily leveling Monk lately, which is now a run of Bardam’s Mettle or so away from 67 and Doma Castle. In the process, I discovered I wasn’t very happy with the last glamour I’d put together with it (which is a little odd, since I would have thought Lyse’s gear would be […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #27

The tank in one of my recent Drowned City of Skalla runs had the Strife Vest glamoured, a piece of which I’ve always been rather fond, and since I’ve long exhausted most of of my available options for new pieces to work with, I decided to see if I could find a new use for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #26

I recently set up a screen saver on my PC to cycle through my FFXIV screenshots folder, which has naturally ended up being something of a glamour roll, since so much of the folder is taken up by screenshots I take for the site. That’s proven somewhat useful already, as it provided me with a bit of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #25

One of the strangest aspects of FFXIV is the mandatory Main Scenario. Long ago, I was more or less a fan of the idea, even if I understood it had its downsides. These days, after getting into Stormblood for the second go’round with Lynahra (and after going through A Realm Reborn and Heavensward a second time as well), I think every aspect […]

Live Letter XL & Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #24

I’m writing this following the most recent Letter from the Producer LIVE, which was over the weekend. This one felt light on information to me, so I didn’t see much reason to do a full post on it. Most everything that will be in 4.2 is what we would expect, including two new dungeons, the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #23

I’ve not had much luck at all with drops for a few weeks now. I’ve been after the Skallic Jacket of Striking for quite some time and I haven’t so much as seen it drop, which has put my glamour plans for Samurai mainly on hold. I’ve had similar trouble with the Ivalician Fusilier’s Jacket, […]
