Glamour Spotlight: Red Mage #8

Though I played Red Mage quite regularly for a good chunk of Stormblood, I’ve largely stepped away from casters in Shadowbringers due to focusing more on tanking (and thus usually playing Ninja on those days when I need a DPS fix). That’s so far meant fewer caster glamours this expansion, to the point where I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #43

I’ve been struggling to find a satisfying glamour for the last leg of my Black Mage’s journey to level 80. Like I mentioned last time, my latest fancy has been to make something work with the tights from the most recent Valentione’s Day event, but that hasn’t really gone according to plan thus far. Before […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #42

Often while leveling, glamours I put together fade quickly, since I’m not always the best about reapplying them when swapping in new gear for the dungeon breakpoints. That’s meant my Black Mage has been floundering for a little while now—since I knew I was looking to overhaul Alahra’s color palette, I never got around to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #41

Since capping off Samurai at 80, I’ve taken a break from any dedicated leveling while I sort out which job I want to focus on next. My SO has been on a bit of a leveling kick, though, which has had me hopping from job to job to pair up with her latest fancy for […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #40

Much like my level 80 healer, I’ve not touched either Red Mage or Summoner much at all since getting the two of them to 80, which has meant a lack of a proper level cap glamour for my casting gear for much of the expansion so far. My caster-swap of my Voeburtite healing glamour has […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Casting

Patch 5.1’s new dungeon brings with it the first level 80 dungeon set of Shadowbringers, since the original three instead dropped accessories to accompany the expansions new Artifact Armor sets. Gathered only from The Grand Cosmos, the new Warg sets are full of wolf motifs, fur, and leather—making for a strange contrast with the stately […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Attire of Casting

As with most of the initial dungeon sets in Shadowbringers, the Voeburtite set from Dohn Mheg for casters shares models with the corresponding healing set. The usual pattern holds here, with the casting set taking on a darker color palette than its healing counterpart, and in this case, I’d say that the darker colors largely […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Attire of Casting

The refrain should be familiar by now: the sets from Malikah’s Well largely repurpose old crafting and gathering sets as hastily donned battle gear, and the Casting set from the dungeon is no exception. Like the companion healing set, this one is based on the mid-tier Ala Mhigan crafting set from Stormblood, but with one […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Attire of Casting

Of the original Demon sets from A Realm Reborn‘s World of Darkness raid, the sets for casters and healers always stood out like a sore thumb. Most of the gear from the instance has a sinister or “edgy” vibe, but the two sets for the Disciples of Magic go off those rails with one of […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Garb of Casting

Another set from the Lakeland cycle of gear that hearkens back to Heavensward gear sets, the Lakeland Garb of Casting opens up models formerly only available to various physical classes to casters. Like the Lakeland Aiming gear, this one originated in Saint Mocianne’s Arboretum, available for tanks and Dragoon initially (and was later re-used for […]
