Patrons Only Spotlight #18: Scholar

Here’s your monthly Patreon spotlight! This’ll be my last post until late next week, as I’m going to be taking a few days off from the blog. As usual, you can check out the post on the site itself here, using the password “moiranna”. With the recent addition of the Eastern Socialite’s Attire and one of this month’s requests, I’ve been thinking a lot more than usual about glamours for every day life. Alahra’s retired from the Maelstrom and spends a lot more time at home now, and it makes sense that she still spends a ton of […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #17: Striking DPS

My Samurai’s been overdue for a new glamour for a little while now. As with many other jobs, I’d long defaulted to using Nezha Lady’s pieces for it, and with my Ninja glamour now finally moving away from it, I want to get the rest of my looks to do the same. I’ve not really […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #15: Scouting DPS

When I started speculating about what new jobs we’ll see in 5.0, I played around a bit with existing gear and made what seemed like appropriate looks for all of them. I didn’t put a whole lot of time into a Scouting look for Blue Mage, though, and with Scouting/Ninja winning this month’s poll, I […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #14: Maiming

With the poll for this month coming up a tie between casters or Dragoon, I made the executive decision to focus on Dragoon this time, since I’d recently put together a new caster glamour and my Dragoon was still glamoured for a roegadyn. I didn’t have any initial ideas, but sometimes that ends up being […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #13: Astrologian

I’ve been pretty focused on Astrologian glamours as of late, so it was a lovely coincidence that all of you voted to see a healer glamour for this month’s Patron Only Glamour Spotlight. Things started out with one of last month’s requests, then moved on to something I put together so I didn’t look ridiculous […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #12: Striking DPS

So, I’m finally coming out of hibernation—a little bit, anyway! I’m largely taking a break from FFXIV, but I’ve had enough time away that I’m ready to start dipping my toes back in. I’ve mostly just been relaxing (and playing a lot of FFXI, which I may do a post on soon), but I’ve also been […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #11: Tanks

While writing up my review of the Angelic Attire, I did get one glamour idea for the set, despite overall thinking I’d probably never use it. The wings are definitely outside of Alahra’s normal wheelhouse (though in an in-character sense I could see something like them for some sort of All Saints’ Wake costume, of […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #10: Healers

Healers winning out for the monthly poll ended up being perfect, as right as we turned the corner into April, I was itching for a new Scholar glamour. My last one was all right, but after using it more often in Eureka, I started to get a bit tired of it. It felt like a […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #9: Scouting DPS

I’ve had a fascination with “biker” glamours for Alahra as far back as A Realm Reborn, which began during the 2.4 Patch, where we got the Picaroon’s Trousers of Scouting. Of course, this was also the same Patch that Ninja was added, of course, so I tried out a lot of different styles. I highlighted one […]

Patrons Only Spotlight #8: Tanks

For your monthly Patron Only glamours, I make a point of trying to use pieces I haven’t used often (or at all), so that I can both broaden my horizons a bit and offer you all something unique for as a way to say thanks for all the support you’ve given the site. For this […]
