Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #43

So far Patch 5.3 has been slow on the glamour front for me. The main patch added several items I’d like to play around with, but they’re pretty much all from Puppets’ Bunker. That means I’m largely limited by the weekly lockout in how glamour-focused I can be. I’m not personally finding the new raid […]

Gear Set Gallery: Shadowless Attire of Scouting

As per usual with my gear set farming for Shadowbringers dungeons, I’ve had rather middling to bad luck collecting the Shadowless sets from the Heroes’ Gauntlet. I’ve seen more of the Aiming Coat than I can count at this point, while I’ve yet to see several of the others. But I did finally cap off […]

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: 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 […]

Gear Set Gallery: Anamnesis Garb of Scouting

After more runs than I could possibly count, I have finally gotten the last piece of gear from Anamnesis Anyder that I needed, and that means it’s also time for the final dungeon set gallery for Patch 5.2, this one for Ninja. As with all of the sets from the latest dungeon, this one is […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #40

Though I’ve finished a few initial stages of the new Blades of Gunnhildr (for Dark Knight, Ninja, and Monk so far), I’ve not yet put a ton of time into creating glamours based around the new weapons just yet. I’ve gotten back into console games in a big way over the last year, and the […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #39

After sating the glamour itch I had for the Neo-Ishgardian Top of Striking, I got a little bit more responsible and picked up the Scouting body piece from the cycle, since Ninja is the one DPS I’m most likely to play compared to all the others (when I’m not tanking, anyway, which is admittedly most […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #38

As we get closer the launch of Patch 5.2, with the second Live Letter on the horizon, I’ve started waffling ever so slightly on what my main job will be once the patch drops for this tier. While I’ve been massively enjoying Dark Knight, both for its resonance with the expansion itself and the overhauled […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #37

Now that I’ve got Alahra’s canon/cutscene glamour finalized in preparation for 5.2, I figured it was time to really start focusing on bringing some color back into her glamours, since black has been so dominant for most of Shadowbringers. My natural starting point for any “glamour cycle” is Ninja, and I had extra incentive to […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Scouting

It’s taken a little while, but I’ve finally rounded up another full set of the Patch 5.1 Warg gear from The Grand Cosmos. Next up is the Warg Scouting set, which shares models with the Striking set from the same dungeon. As with the other sets, this one is heavily canine-themed, complete with ornamental claws […]
