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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #33

After I finished Monk, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to be leveling next. Monk was really the last “essential” job for Alahra, with everything else mostly being a curiosity that I’d level mostly just to have a full array of 70s by Stormblood‘s end. My S.O. wanted to get started on her Dark […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #32

Slowly but surely, I’ve been updating titling conventions across the site to make separate posts more clear on search engines (which is something I’ve done like three times now—hopefully this is the last time I have to do it!), and it’s been interesting to note that roles I don’t play as much tend to have more glamours […]

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 […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #30

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 […]
