Even the dyes only do so much (though I see they're getting some new ones as well).

But, in either case, still happy for the glamour system in general.
Yea it's kinda of a weird choice given the prisms were made for lower levels as well as higher levels.

Yes, but the patch notes had a worrying bit in it, they say that Glamour will not work in PVP and "other special areas"

The rationale behind this decision puzzles me as well. It's not like we're talking about highly challenging scenarios here or anything...

On another note, I am curious as to whether the devs have tried blending PvP and PvE into a given instance; something along the lines described in this article.

IIRC, you can sell the item imbued with glamour in the market for lower level to wear, so lower level player can opt for that?

Ohhh.... If this is the case, then there could be a good little business here for level 50 characters, so long as they're willing to be reasonable in price (as low-level characters don't have much Gil). You could either sell/trade "pre-made" combos (safest; just buy the armor from merchants, apply the glamour, and sell/trade), or offer a service where the person provides the items they want to have "glamourized" () with a small service fee, and then you get it back applied (requires trust of the seller, particularly if you're also handing over the glamour item).

I always thought you needed to have the glamour item somehow on your character in order for it to work, even after applying it, but this doesn't make sense because the projected item could be in your armoire or retainer.

An idea they could implement for later could be to have a self-serve glamour NPC for lower-level characters where they can trade the items and apply the glamour for gil, but for level 50 armors and above, you'd have to use the crafting/skill method. Obviously, though, that would remove the business opportunity mentioned above.

In case anyone else was using their PS3 controller connected to their PC to play the game, the new update changed the way controller input is handled in the game. It used to be that you could use Motioninjoy (with Better DS3, preferably) to just create a default XInput profile, but this no longer works properly. Instead, you need to create a DirectInput profile to map the buttons.

Triangle/Circle/Cross/Square: 2/4/3/1
Select/Start/PS: 11/12/13
L1/L2/R1/R2: 5/7/6/8
L3/R3: 9/10
D-Pad/Left Stick/Right Stick: D-Pad/X&Y/Z&RZ

Also posting it here in case I lose the settings somehow.

The amount of hoops you have to run to unlock stuff (especially Leviathan) is a bit high in this patch.

Now, I don't mind story and lore and all that, but are all these fetch quests really the best way to deliver it? Out of the massive quest lineup they introduced, there's only a handful that I didn't find boring. It's a bit painful doing those quests when you aren't even gaining exp or anything.

Did the the 3 new 4 four man dungeons, Diabolos was an interesting fight, while Brayflox's Longstop (Hard) is freaking bombs on every boss, and the last boss took to that a bit of a crazy level . While Halatali (hard) found the 1st two bosses harder than the last oddly. (Ran all 3 dungeons blind with no info on them)

You cannot do this. Once you mog something it becomes bound to you. Square has done their best to make sure only players with at least one level 50 job can actually make use of the system.

Yea, it seems that was misinformation on my part. Some JP players on my LS and FC talked before the patch that it's possible to sell the glamorized item, so I thought that was confirmed, but it turns out that was speculation.

mog?

So if I made a cashmere robe and use glamour to put that look on my allagan, the cashmere will be bound to me despite me never having used it in combat?

So anyone else enjoying the nice gil bonus for doing daily roulettes for roles in demand?

Cause 4.5k for them each really adds up in addition to the tomes .

Yes. Shitty, but it exists. I really wish they didn't restrict this system so damn much. I should be able to skin any item onto any other item regardless of what its equip requirements are. Squee clearly hates fun.

"Mog" being short for "transmogrification," which was WoW's name for their item reskinning system. Old habits die hard.

I'm cashing in on the market for glamour prisms while it lasts. Up to 400 per cent profit in some cases.

Yeah, a guy in my FC made about 2M with this. Unsurprisingly the prices already plummeted.

We were wiping on Leviathan EX last night, that is a really fun fight. It's just really nice to do something before it's been totally figured out, you don't feel as bad about failing. The fight's also not as scripted as Titan, so you really have to think fast. For example, the adds can pop up during different phases, and Leviathan charges/bodyslams from random directions, so you must think quickly.

I have a question for those who've finished the atma quest... is it possible to farm all 12 crystals in one area or do you have to visit all 12 locations to get the neccessary items to upgrade your zenith weapon into atma version?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

You cannot farm all 12 crystals in one area as they're all area dependent (Atma of the Maiden can only be gotten from Central Shroud and nowhere else).

The amount of RNG-based drops in this patch is saddening. Leviathan EX mirrors, Unidentified Allagan Tomestones, Sands of Oil/Time, and Atmas. At this point, I think my static has decided to farm Levi EX and T5 for i95 weapons and just do T6 with those. There's not a chance we'll see 8 mirrors drop from Levi..

We managed to score server first on clearing Levi Ex on Lich (not that it matters with how dead/lazy the server is, but I guess it's something).

And in other news, I am loving Glamours. Especially with how blehhghg the new caster stuff is (what is WITH Mi'qotes' tail being stuck up like that?!). My sailor/school catgirl just can't be beat!
