Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #36

I’ve struggled to come up with a relic glamour for Monk’s new Samsara from the Blades of Gunnhildr. While its colors are generally up my alley, with red, black, and gold all featuring heavily in my glamours over the years, Monk in particular lacks solid glamour options that cover all three in a way that […]

Gear Set Gallery: Anamnesis Garb of Striking

Next up of the gearsets from Anamnesis Anyder is the Striking garb, this one a recolor of the Shire Pankratiast’s gear from the end of Heavensward. As with the other sets in the cycle of Anamnesis gear, this one swaps the original black leather for brown, resulting in an overall color palette of browns, blues, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Monk #13

Though initially I wasn’t very keen on the YorHA sets from The Copied Factory, due to the differing gender morphs and how similar many of the pieces seemed at first glance, I’ve started to come around on them ever since finalizing my YorHA Ninja glamour a little bit ago. There are a lot of subtle […]

Gear Set Gallery: Warg Garb of Striking

For this week’s gear set gallery, we’ll be looking at another of the Warg sets from Patch 5.1’s The Grand Cosmos. Like all of the sets from the new dungeon, this one—the Striking set for Monk and Samurai—comes with a strong wolf motif. This one features a prominent bushy tail attached to the body piece, […]

Patch 5.1 First Impressions & Glamour Spotlight: Striking #35

I’ve had a bit of time with Patch 5.1 so far, and I have to say I’m generally impressed. Following up the incredible Shadowbringers 5.0 launch, I was both excited for the next major patch and a little nervous. The new expansion launch was so good that I wasn’t sure the next installment could ever […]

Gear Set Gallery: Voeburtite Garb of Striking

Sharing models with the Scouting set from Dohn Mheg, the Voeburtite Striking gear shares most of its colors with that set as well. However, it sets itself apart by adding an additional color: the bright reds so often used on Striking gear throughout FFXIV. Combined with the greens and browns that are shared with the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Nabaath Garb of Striking

It’d be charitable to describe much of the Nabaath gear as fashionable, but I think the Nabaath Garb of Striking takes the award for least fashionable among them. Cobbled together from a mix of crafting gear (including a leather apron) and crafted tank gear from Stormblood, this set from Malikah’s Well lacks some of the […]

Gear Set Gallery: The Forgiven’s Garb of Striking

I’ve said much of what needs to be said about the Forgiven’s Striking gear already, since it shares models with the Scouting gear that’s also from Mt. Gulg, a set that I covered a few rounds through the dungeons ago. Like that set, this one offers up some light, dyeable armor of the kind that’s […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Striking

Largely sharing models with the Scouting gear from the same dungeon, the Ravel Keeper’s Garb of Striking follows along thematically with the rest of the sets from The Qitana Ravel, a new dungeon from the Shadowbringers expansion. Serving well as tribal or ceremonial garb that’s lighter fare than other options in the same vein, the […]

Gear Set Gallery: Lakeland Garb of Striking

At a glance, it can be a bit difficult to distinguish the Lakeland Garb of Striking from the corresponding Scouting set from the first dungeon of Shadowbringers. Both sets are based on the Bogatyr’s Garb from A Realm Reborn, and both have largely similar color schemes centered around shades of brown and black. The devil […]
