Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #24

I couldn’t have planned a sudden, renewed interest in playing Bard any better than for it to have come up right before the recent Tokyo FanFest, where Dancer was announced, surprisingly, as FFXIV‘s next Ranged DPS class. As is so often the case with these sorts of things, it all started because of a need […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #37

Toward the end of the push to finish my Kasasagi Eureka, I ended up on White Mage of all things. My S.O. and I were trying to see how well we could duo higher end enemies, since the instance we were in wasn’t doing much to actively pop NMs on the right side of Hydatos. […]

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) requested a magical girl glamour for casters this month. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When it comes to magical girls in FFXIV, I’ve most commonly seen people shoot for a Sailor Moon kind of look, using things like […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #33

Site patron @curious_usagi wanted a glamour for “casual Fridays” this month, leading to this one. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When I first got this request, I strongly suspected I’d be looking to some of FFXIV‘s more modern gear pieces—things like the Whisperfine Woolen Boots […]
