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 […]

Gear Set Gallery: Ravel Keeper’s Attire of Casting

The Ravel Keeper’s Attire of Casting from Shadowbringers offers another take on a ceremonial tribal look for the game’s magical DPS classes. Much lighter than other tribal sets (like the Woad Skywicce’s Garb from Sohm Al), the Ravel Keeper’s set has a sort of primal elegance that will probably give it a decent amount of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #39

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: Casters #38

So, I had one more glamour with the Eastern Socialite’s Cheongsam in me before I start moving on to other things. I mentioned last time the idea of using it alongside the Halonic Exorcist’s Boots for my casters, especially since I needed to do something about the last caster look, which was decidedly outside of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #37

Like I mentioned last time, I’m finally getting around to picking up the Bonewicca glamour gear from Swallow’s Compass, and along with the Shadow’s Chestpiece, I also picked up the Whisperer’s Jacket. With its fancy “wings,” the Jacket is probably one of the most unique we’ve seen in FFXIV so far, and I assumed that meant I’d […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #36 (All Saints’ Wake 2018)

One thing that’s always vexed me when putting together glamours for All Saints’ Wake is that Pumpkin Orange Dye doesn’t match the shades of orange used on the seasonal glamour items. Most of the time, Sunset Orange has worked better, but even that’s not a perfect match, since it lacks some of the brightness of […]

Fantasia Spotlight #3: Female Hyur (Casters)

It’s Fantasia time again! I’d been looking forward to the day I got to work with a female hyur for the first time, and that day’s finally come! I’ve always been a huge fan of their race-specific starting armor (as well as their Hempen Camise and Pantalettes). But as I approached the day when I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Summoner #1

It occurs to me as I sit down to write this post that, in the four and a half years (give or take a month) since the introduction of the glamour system to FFXIV, I have never used Summoner-specific gear in a glamour until this one. Naturally, that comes down mainly to the fact that I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #35

My Red Mage is just about all set with Anemos gear now, with only two pieces remaining. But, since I jumped the gun on a Red Mage-specific glamour, the couple of pieces remaining ended up really disrupting the glamour for my Black Mage and Summoner. I don’t really play either of them, since if I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #34

As I thought I would, I’ve been getting a lot of mileage out of Red Mage inside Eureka Anemos. So far, I’ve been exclusively duoing with my S.O., which means its overall kit of abilities is really handy. One of us having access to Raise is more or less mandatory to ensure that we don’t […]
