48 thoughts on “FFXIV: The "New" Way To Glamour Items In 6.4”
It’s a bit meh. But I’ll take little improvements until we get a a full transmog feature
It would be a lot better if the dresser pulled from the inventory of the reteiners. Because when you're shufling in their inventory, there's no preview window or any way to mount a glamour plate with the itens.
so whats the point.. if it’s not outside the inn-room..
Don’t like it all. I want to be able to see how something matches before casting a glamour on it. I guess it’s good to dress up your retainers
I don't know how I can expect nothing and still be disappointed.
Im pretty sure you did the contrary on that. It default to selecting the retaienr because thats the base you want to glamour, not your own character. Unless you wanted to show on your character. But that whole new system is FOR the retainer, which is a huge update. I dont think this was ever meant for your own character, the option is there if you want but that's not the point lol. The way you used to glam a retaienr before was a pain in the butt. You had to glam manually the gear then give it to the retainer.
I just think you read this whole glam update the wrong way
Idk why some people are calling this a step backwards, it's a new feature, that doesn't take away from your options before this was added, and I can tell you this will 100% be useful especially for glamouring your retainers easier, and also yourself. There's room for improvement yes but it's a step in the right direction.
this current "new" glamour system seems to me as a stepingstone to something like the wow transmog one since it now lists all you have in any bag its not far of to make a checklist of allready gatherd designes.
Seems convenient because you can store more gear in your retainer.
The main reason was this was a quick fix because the original Galmour dresser programmers aren't there so this was a way to increase the amount without having to rewrite the code. At least that's how it was explained to me
You’re pained voice when saying you need to be in an inn, when glamour dressers are inn only lmao.
Good vid but I will never use this!
Yea this isn't meant to replace anything dawg. This is purely a better way to glam your retainers. So maybe look at it that way since using this to replace the current system doesn't make sense at all and I'm pretty sure that wasn't what was intended either.
Also the reason I believe the dresser doesn't use the retainer inventory is because that inventory isn't purely for equipment, which means empty list slots and generally a clunky presentation. Perhaps they'll add a new glamour inventory to retainers, but I doubt it.
As a 'step' towards improving the system I like this. But ultimately the thing that needs doing is glamour dressers in housing. I have never bought the 'tech limitation' argument since, as an engineer, I know that tech limits are usually budget limits. If FFXIV is as profitable as SE claims (and they can waste money on NFTs) then they can certainly do this.
It's a meh system. Its nice to combine the glam closet and the armoire but…meh
the glamour sys is fine wish they would add the ability to get more glam plates in the dresser or tab system for each job 20 slots is not enough unless you use 1 slot per job also expand the armory my retainers are holding all my higher lvl gear for lower level jobs that i haven't leveled up yet but don't want to sell the gear just to rebuy it later when i level a new job up.
It's like someone gives you a landline phone in 1971 and you are all meh and say the iPhone is better. Doesn't help you much that something that has not been invented yet will be better than what we have now…
The question should be does it improve on parts of the glamour system, compared to what we had without the improvement…
The glamour and dye system needs a complete overhaul. This is all getting tedious lol they need to just make items you get into unlocked skins so you can ditch the item once you’ve made it untradeable
They are/were too busy on ff16 thats why this last patches are shit
Please just implement WoW's Transmog system and stop this madness. Its utter shite.
They keep putting band aids on a broken system. It just doesn't work if you are collector of glams.
Are they just trying to get people to pay for more retainers?
As far as glamours go, the only improvement I want and need is more glamour plates. As someone that has nearly every job maxed out, it’s disappointing not having enough plates to at least cover every job.
For all of its shortcomings (whew boy), Guild Wars 2 still has one of the best glamor systems in an mmo.
I can see another use for the retainer inventory; this will help me find items my character should be wearing without having to mouse over each item in the retainer's inventory.
God the glamour system is so friggin janky. There HAS to be a better way to do this….
Shout out to Meoni's glamour. Black Game of Thrones style chest piece and red 70s plaid pants for the legs with knee-high brown boots. Peek fashion.
Se alguem puder me dizer qual a armadura que ele está usando em 0:22 fico agradecido.
Oh I'm sure SE will have a ton of complaints for this.
I haven't even logged in the last 2 days until my magic things start working again = 3= I don't like XIV with it's vanilla look, it's boring.
And jesus if glamours could be any more complicated, they have achieved it, they should do a complete overhaul on glamouring, they need something like GW2 has, once you get the item the looks of that item is stored and enabled to be glamoured anywhere at any time you want. Having 3 different things to just do glamouring is stupid and overcomplicated.
FFXIV glamour system has got to be the most cumbersome system of any kind in any game I've ever had the displeasure of engaging with. I hope they figure outa way to streamline it all one day. As it stands they just keep tacking things onto it. It needs a massive overhaul. Glad they are still trying though.
It feels like it is for the Retainer Glam, but they added character glam as an option and then marketed it towards character glam.
Meoni… did you know… you can go into the inn room and cast glamour on yourself and then select the glamour from the glamour dresser without going into the glamour dresser?…
Definitely agree that the retainer glamour needs to be overhauled further. Specifically the Dresser needs to be expanded way further, retainers should get the same kind of UI as the dresser for glamming, even the possible inclusion of their own dedicated glamour plates. Also in the future retainers should be a way to access the entire glam system from outside of an inn room.
Further to solve the issue of "tied" glam plates, have plates directly assigned to classes and jobs then have a "general" plate section. Then when setting up gear sets you can more directly tie them to a plate when generating them. Perhaps also allow them to go into the backend and fix the portrait syncing issues since it's tied to plates.
Lastly we still need an item that can be put on a glam plate that acts as a "blank" so we can use an "unglammed" armor piece as a part of an outfit while still being able to glam over it for a different outfit or different job's outfit. Ostensibly the gear just "glamours" the base gear being glammed onto itself for the sake of glamour plate usage. So if I have a savage chest piece, by using a "blank" gear on the plate, the armor is "glammed" as the savage chest piece.
The fact that I cannot use both my Savage tier armor unglamoured AND have a glam for a job that uses the same exact armor is infuriating. I want to use the Savage gear on my SMN but HATE the look on my RDM. I HAVE to glam them both so I can keep my SMN and RDM looking distinct, or not at all to use the armor look. And if I use the normal tier armor for my SMN glam I can't dye it.
this seems more like a clunky band aid for retainer glamor
This is a nice change! Reason: You can now access your glamour dresser and armory items from inside your house or apartment! It would be much better if you could edit glamour plates from retainer bells too, but this is a small improvement. Nice!
For all their other mistakes, WoW got glamours right. I hope FFXIV moves closer to that system in the future.
the only good thing from WoW is the transmog system and that is the only thing i wish i had in ff14 🙁
Once you get an item that you can wear it gets unlocked on all characters for same klasse/job on your account and you can throw the item away and still use it like glamour when ever you want while in ff14 you need to savekeep the items in a limited box and it only works on the one character. I play Cat girl, male-female human, Dragon girl and Bunny girl and i had to farm up my favorit glamour on every single one of them again. I realy wish they would implement that system in future.
i would of liked them using the same dress-up system they got for the Squadrons over a system i cant even see the character ….
There is something that feels kind of backwards about putting another glam option in this way. I may use it for glaming all my relic replicas since I don't really change weapon glams all that often but anything else feels like a waste of time and I'd rather just have it on a glamour plate so I don't have to worry about accidentally ruining it cause of a job it shares gear with.
I wish they could just add Glamour Dressers in the FC House at least and make the room instanced like Company Workshops.
I appreciate the devs keep trying to improve the glam system. They’re def struggling to work with the coding to do this. Hopefully they’ll figure it out.
SQE PLEASE GIVE US A HOUSING GLAMOUR DRESSER
Genuinely feel that the only way to fully please players would be to start from scratch with this one. I know nothing about coding though, so I guess it is very time consuming and expensive to do, so I don't expect them to do it.
I just feel like you can't 'feature add' your way out of this one; we'd need the glamour dresser to be freely accessed from non-instanced areas like the armoire in order to have truly significant QoL imporovements going forward.
I do appreciate the attempt, though. At least they understand the ongoing issue for players.
I kinda admire Square Enix's efforts to NOT give the easiest option for players, (a gallery with all the skins you already unlocked in it) and instead stick to convoluted methods to overcome the obstacles they create themselves.
Extremely overcomplicated. I won't be using it. What the game needs is a World of Warcraft style system in which the game remembers everything you have ever looted and been able to equip. Then from a menu you can choose your items that way.
FFXIV try not to come up with the most obscure insane UX imaginable (impossible)
Why are FF systems just all so badly created and optimised?
I hope they can eventually add it to the glamour dresser it just seems like a lot of work for something so simple. But it’s better to have it than nothing at all too
