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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #22

With Dark Knight now at 70, it’s time to figure out what class I’m going to be leveling next. I’m not entirely decided yet, but the two main contenders seem to be Astrologian (which is 62—Earthly Star is really cool!) and Monk, which I just got to 65 (and out of the hell that is […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #21

I’ve been running Drowned City of Skalla a few times a week (sometimes even outside of Expert Roulette) to collect the various body pieces, and as I’ve mentioned a few times, my luck has been purely awful. So far, I’ve managed to get the Maiming body (when I don’t even have Dragoon at 70 >.>) […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #20

Since I’ve been largely taking a break from the game, mainly logging in to take care of Creation capping for the time being, I haven’t really been working on Lynahra for quite awhile (and that’s likely to continue a bit once Patch 4.1 launches, but we’ll see). That’s meant that while I’ve had an idea […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #19

I’ve been taking it easy in FFXIV lately, since we’re in that pre-patch lull and I’m really aching for new content. I’ve recently gotten into Hearthstone (against all of my better judgment), so I’ve often been signing on for a daily Expert Roulette and not doing much else in the game. I’ve still been spending time on glamours […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #18

Getting Lynahra to 60 on Samurai took awhile. Vacation got in the way, as well as a lot of other diversions (like treasure maps and some deep dives into Palace of the Dead). Part of the time in Palace of the Dead was spent on her Samurai, though, which pushed me close enough to 60 […]
