Are you ready to take your fashion game in Final Fantasy 14 to the next level? In this guide, we will unlock the secret to glamouring - the ability to dress your character in stylish gear without sacrificing stats. Additionally, we will delve into the world of dyeing, allowing you to personalize your gear with vibrant colors. So, let's dive in!

Glamouring in FFXIV: Unleash Your Fashionista

Glamouring is the art of projecting the appearance of one piece of equipment onto another, giving you the freedom to showcase your style without compromising functionality. However, there are a few rules to keep in mind. The gear you wish to glamour must be at the same or lower level as yours and suitable for the same class or job. So, no fooling others into thinking you're a high-level Dragoon when you're actually a White Mage!

To unlock the glamouring ability, you need to reach at least level 15 and progress far enough in the main scenario quests to access Western Thanalan. There, you'll encounter Swyrgeim, a stylishly dressed NPC who will introduce you to the world of glamour through the quest "If I Had a Glamour." Once completed, you'll find the Glamour skill in the general tab of your actions and traits window.

Manually Glamouring: The Power is in Your Hands

If you prefer a hands-on approach, you can manually glamour individual items using the "Cast Glamour" skill. Access this skill from the actions and traits menu or simply right-click on the gear you want to glamour and select "cast glamour." Each item requires one glamour prism for the transformation.

The Glamour Dresser and Armoire: Automated Fashion at Your Fingertips

For those seeking convenience and organization, the glamour dresser and armoire are invaluable tools. You can find these magical wardrobes at each inn in major cities like Ul'dah, Limsa Lominsa, New Gridania, Ishgard, Kugane, and the Crystarium, as well as inside your Grand Company barracks.

The glamour dresser can hold up to 400 items and is where you can store the gear you want to use for your outfits. If you have gear from events or specific items, the armoire can save space in your dresser by offering storage. Placing an item in the dresser or armoire requires one glamour prism.

Creating glamour plates is where the real magic happens. These plates allow you to transform your entire outfit with a single click, rather than applying glamour individually. The best part? Using a plate doesn't cost any prisms!

After setting up a plate at the dresser, you can access it anytime from your character menu. However, remember that you can only activate glamour plates when you're in a city. Take it a step further by linking glamour plates to specific gear sets. This allows you to give different looks to items shared between multiple classes or jobs, automatically updating their appearance when switching gear sets in town.

To link a glamour plate to a gear set, select the gear set button, choose the desired gear set, and click "link to glamour plate."

Dyeing Gear: Paint Your World with Colors

Unlock the ability to dye your gear by speaking to Swyrgeim, the same NPC who introduced you to glamouring. Complete the quest "Color Your World," and a world of color will open up for your gear.

Dyes can be obtained from vendors or crafted from pigments through various means. To manually dye your gear, select the desired gear from your armory or character screen, and execute the dyejob. Each dyejob requires one dye.

Alternatively, when using glamour plates, applying dye only uses the dye once during the initial plate setup. Applying the plate later will not consume additional dyes.

Now you have the tools and knowledge to unlock the full potential of glamouring and dyeing in Final Fantasy 14. Embrace your inner fashionista and create stunning looks that will wow both friends and foes alike. Let your imagination run wild and make your mark on the world of Eorzea!
