I am someone who absolutely loves a good pricing system. One of mine the greatest joy in Lord of the Rings Online, for example, making sure that my mount and my outfit at any given time match. It’s amazing how my family keeps commenting that all I wear is a black T-shirt and Under Armor running pants. However, in a game world, I am passionate about making my avatar look as good as possible.
My friend Leif joked with me that now I’m in the real endgame: Fashion Fantasy. Up until now, however, I’ve been so focused on developing the story that I’ve mostly overlooked FFXIV’s Glamor System.
Making your avatar look good is like… 50% of the reason why so many MMOs we joke around. However, when staring at the back of something for hours like we would in an MMORPG, it only makes sense that we want the back to look as cool as possible.
For me, jumping into the Duty Finder and being the only one in the group without a good outfit has always been a pain in the ass for me. While I think the Red Mage’s armor looks pretty cool, I wanted something that felt unique and individual. So last week, I plunged headfirst into the world of Glamoring my armor. And boy is this a hole, I’m not sure I’ll be climbing out of it any time soon.
Looks good to save the world
While I will maintain, I love freedom Lord of the Rings Onlinebasically any wearable piece of clothing or armor, regardless of level or class, can become a costume, I appreciate how Final Fantasy 14 all set. In a nutshell, you’ll need a Glamor Prism that’s easy enough to bring to market. Once you have these prisms, you can basically make your current armor look like any kit you have in your arsenal, from weapon skins to upper boots. your leg.
However, there are some caveats. The item you’re trying to Charm cannot be a lower level item than you want it to be. Meaning if you’re wearing a level 72 body piece, but the piece you want it to look like is level 80, you’re out of luck. Also, you can’t put Glamor prisms on anything that your current job wouldn’t naturally wear. So if you’re a Dancer but want to look like a brilliant Dark Knight, unfortunately you can’t.
That being said, the possibilities feel endless because of a lot of device sharing work. I find myself engrossed in finding medium the mix of armor and clothing pieces really gives the flair I’m looking for.
It helps that fashion in Final Fantasy 14 is a huge effort. Sure, other games have pricing systems and some games may even have fashion shows and more games are created in the community to show off creations. But FFXIV seems perfectly ready to stand above the rest with its avid fashion community.
Sites like Glamor Catalog of the Eorzea Collection allows players to really show off their creations in the best possible lighting conditions and even pitch ideas to people (like me) who don’t know what they’re doing at first. Being able to easily sort by level range, job type, and more to find the right pieces to complete your look makes joining Glamors pretty easy when it can be daunting.
Other resources, such as FFXIV Web Model Viewer lets you build your look from any device in the MMO, dye it the color you want, and see what the character looks like before you use the gil in the game. It’s great for someone like me who is struggling to make money on any of the MMOs I play, no matter how long I play them, to rework the look I want before cashing out which I will regret spending later.
A great Red Mage Glamor by Kaina Kawashima
Although I think some way to access costs in FFXIV complex compared to other games – rely on LotRO For example, you can simply place the piece of equipment in the costume slot on the character screen and save your outfit at the end of the story – I think these resources make it easier to find first for anyone care.
Last night I played FFXIV, I find myself pouring all of these out, refining my look. As a Red Mage, I wanted something as flashy as the class feel. I’ve always loved the feathered hat and red cape of my class, but hated the frills some of the Red Mage’s gear had. I also wanted to get rid of those long tabs and padding equipment that made my characters look…also…puffy. I wanted something stylish, but still bringing out the flair of the Red Mage layer. And I want my Rapier to look great in combat.
I was able to do this thanks to the resources listed above. Reviewing posts and finding pieces that I think are great, I have formed a group that I am happy to be part of the Duty Finder team. I don’t feel fashionably flawed anymore. Instead, I looked as flashy as the last Verholy where I played the unsuspecting boss.
While I’m not an expert here on Glamoring, I’m really happy that I stopped diving into the content and took the time to make my character look good. Too often with this gig, I’m running from game to game, and unless it’s a review, I never quite get into the many systems that keep players coming back to watch. more. Final Fantasy 14’s The seduction system is something that I can find myself turning over and over again, just like I do in other cosmetic-focused MMOs. It’s my endgame, and one that I’d happily immerse myself in for hours if it means my character looks good the next time I see Limsa or Crystarium.
