Glamour Spotlight: Casters #31

Lately I’ve gotten pretty interested in exploring different styles of boots for Alahra, since Stormblood hasn’t really expanded our range of available thighboots very much.  The most notable new ones were the dyeable Tigerskin recolors of the Orthodox/Dravanian Thighboots from Heavensward, and outside of those we’ve gotten one or two new pairs (with the Gyuki Leather Highboots being […]

For whatever reason, it hit me recently that even though I had gotten Black Mage to 65 quite some time ago now, I never upgraded its gear set to incorporate the Casting gear from Bardam’s Mettle. Doing so, of course, meant I was highly encouraged to come up with a new glamour, since the gear […]

I’ve been spending a lot more time with Ahrane lately than I have in the past (for roleplaying at least; I’ve still done almost nothing with her gameplay wise), and for most of it, her last glamour has been bugging me. While I like the overall look, something about it has started to feel off, […]

I haven’t been playing Red Mage much lately, with Ninja, Samurai, and even Bard all taking precedence for DPS usage at the level cap. A lot of that has to do with gear. Both my Ninja and Samurai have Lost Allagan weapons (with Ninja also boasting several 340 pieces now), so it’s usually faster to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #27 (All Saints’ Wake 2017)

All Saints’ Wake has consistently been the best seasonal event in FFXIV for glamour items (which is part of the reason I do glamours for it and don’t generally for the other events). This year’s set is the latest great piece in the series of All Saints’ Wake sets, and I’m sure I’ll get more glamours out of […]

With Scholar being my most recent leveling project (at least, the one that got significant dungeon time) that also meant I was getting a free ride on Summoner. I’ve never played the class much at all (and been plainly mediocre at it whenever I’ve tried), but I always try to keep its gear updated just […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #25

Ever since getting Red Mage to 70, I’ve had a difficult time really finalizing a glamour for it. I’ve gotten bored with each of the two main ones I’ve put together, which has left my mind wandering and pondering other combinations pretty often. I think, after some thought on the matter, that my main problem […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #24

I got back from vacation earlier this week, and after a week of not playing the game, I was having some trouble getting back into the swing of things. I did have a number of glamour goals in mind before I left, though, and so thankfully I had things to work on when I got […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #23

I’ve been pretty focused on Bard and Scholar for a bit, but I’ve also taken a little time to experiment with other classes back at 60 while my S.O. experimented with which healer she wanted to take to 70. After trying out both Monk and Machinist, neither of which I felt good about, I decided […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #22

Progress on leveling Red Mage has been steady: as of writing, I’ve hit 66, and I’d imagine by the time this post is actually up on the site, I’ll probably be 67 or 68, with just a little more to go until the new level cap. The class has continued to be a delight. It’s fun to […]
