    Do you need an FFXIV glamour primer? Final Fantasy XIV is full of crazy costumes that are a real introduction to the series and look as good or bad as the raids. Fortunately, there are some great tools that will let you wear anything you want without affecting your stats.

    Here you'll learn how to use the FF14 Glamour system, including solving unlocking problems, cutting and coloring your hair, and using prisms and the FF14 Glamour Dresser.

    FFXIV Glamour Quest: How to Find It

    The essence of Glamour is to stick the look you want for your clothes on the clothes you actually wear, so you can look good while maintaining the right outfit. To unlock it, you need to go to Horizon in the west of Thanalan, talk to Swyrgeim, and complete 15 quest levels - one to unlock Glamouring, one to dye, and one for crafters to unlock crafting prisms. She wants different types of orange juice, which you can get at a nearby bar to complete all three. Once you're done, you can begin your fashion journey.

    How to use dyes

    Let's start with the basics. You can dye most of your equipment by buying or crafting dyes and then applying them directly to items. Go to your character screen or armory, select your equipment, and scroll down to "Dyes". This will open a pop-up window where you can preview the different colors before applying the dye. You can find many of the basic dyes sold by Junkmongers in many places, but rare dyes are carefully crafted.

    How do I get a haircut?

    Another quick way to change your look is to lock your groomer. You can use a crystal clock in your hotel room or summon one after buying a house. This will summon Jandelaine and take you to a restricted version of the character creator to change your hair and makeup. You can unlock some additional hairstyles in the game's Golden Saucer, Wolf's Lair and two deep dungeons.

    Using FFXIV Glamour Prism

    To quickly change the look of your device, you will need some FFXIV Glamour Prisms, which can be made or bought from Marketboard. First, select the item you want to wear, then scroll down to "Casting Glamour". You will then see a screen with the selected item on the left and a list of items you can use Glamour for on the right.

    Note the following: You can only have Charisma items in FF14 that are compatible with the job you are playing and are equal to or lower than your level. Once you choose an appearance, use Charisma and Prisma. Congratulations on your new outfit, no one will ever know how ugly your real armor really is.

    Using FFXIV Glamour Trimmer and Plate

    If you're a fashionista and want to set up multiple costumes, use the Glamour Dresser and Glamour Plate found in Inn rooms in all major cities. The dresser allows you to store up to 400 pieces of equipment (convenient for all product tools) and easily project the look of a stored item onto the selected item of your choice. However, the real power lies in the FFXIV Glamour Plates.

    With the plates you'll be able to create an entire outfit and instantly apply it to the clothes you wear. To create a Glamour Plate, select Edit Glamour Plate and fill each slot with the look you want for your dresser. Then click Save. To apply it, simply click Apply, which can be done in the Trimmer or by clicking the character icon next to the gear group list in the Character menu.

    By using such an attractive nameplate, you can use the same look for multiple jobs and quickly update the look as you level and change gears to maintain a consistent look.

    Where to find clothes

    Where do you actually buy clothes? You can buy simple armor from towns and rare items and ff14 gil from dungeons, but the most coveted looks are either handcrafted or made for events and quests. Many older Final Fantasy RPG pieces (like FFVIII's Squal Jacket) are "Veteran's Rewards" and can be traded for achievement certificates (earned by playing the game for a long time) through Jonathas in Old Gdarnia.

    It's worth traveling to Wolve's Den and participating in PvP to find beautiful armor that many people don't know is out there. The Beast Tribe also has a few pieces, like Ananta's dyeable nails on the side. Finally, Gold Saucer also hosts many whimsical and pastel costumes and a game called "Fashion Report" that challenges your fashion skills.
