Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #32 & Another Return Home

I’m still working my way through the main content additions from 4.3, and while there’s a lot I could talk about, especially regarding the Main Scenario, that will have to wait for now. In the meantime, for the MSQ and the Riordana Lighthouse chapter of Return to Ivalice, I decided to go on Ninja, even […]

Glamour Spotlight: Crafters #8

Way back in Final Fantasy XI, I loved the game’s various yukatas, which were usually part of various summertime events not unlike FFXIV‘s Moonfire Faire. For the most part, the relaunched FFXIV hasn’t continued the tradition, with only the first Moonfire Faire following the game’s 2.0 relaunch as A Realm Reborn offering yukatas of any variety. I’ve only rarely found uses […]

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: Black Mage #3

At this point, it’s pretty safe to say that glamour potential alone is going to keep me interested in Eureka for some time to come, as I keep getting ideas for ways to use the dyeable Artifact Armor sets. While I had planned to finish off the Anemos Storyteller’s set for Bard, the realization that […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #29

I’ve spent almost all of my time in FFXIV since the release of the Nezha Lady’s Attire experimenting with it. It’s a great glamour set (and I talked about some of the reasons why in my review), and it looks fantastic on Alahra. I’ve been focusing on other things for most of the last week, but given […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #31

With several of my recent glamours for Alahra all featuring plenty of Pure White, I’ve definitely hit that point where I’m going to have to get something white put together for everything. It’s often more difficult to do so for jobs I don’t play as often, since I have less familiarity with the sorts of things […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #18

I don’t even know where to begin with this one! Usually, as I’m putting together a glamour, there’s stuff running through my head, and I can figure out how to open the blog portion of each Spotlight that way. For this one, though, it was all pretty simple! I had enough Crystals for another piece […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scholar #6

I’m at a wonderful point with Eureka now, having finished full sets of Anemos gear for Alahra’s three primary jobs for Stormblood (barring any sudden changes in priorities, anyway) but with enough interest to keep gathering upgrade crystals, meaning I can target things specifically for glamour now. After I finished up my Red Mage set, I debated […]

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: Bard #17

Not long after I put together the Shrine Maiden glamour from earlier in the month, the latest Fashion Report had the Ivalician Fusiler’s Jacket as a gold-ranked option for the body slot. My Bard had been using the jacket for actual gear purposes, and so to access the model I needed to remove the glamour […]
