FF14 - 2022 Complete Beginner's Guide! (Final Fantasy 14)  and 

Don't make these 5 Huge Mistakes in FF14 as a New Player! by Lucky Ghost.

If you are new to the game or new to using Adventure Plates and Instant Portraits, since the portraits show when you enter a Duty now, I might have some help for you when it comes to setting up the Instant Portraits.

FFXIV | How To Edit Your Final Fantasy XIV Instant Portraits by Alienne Ashford is a short guide on how to do it right. It’s literally just over 2m 30s long, and it works.

The next job to 90 will, most likely, be the Dragoon, which starts as the Class Lancer.

I didn’t have a proper glam for that job, so I went hunting for one and found this and just had to have it.

This is the Instant Portrait with the complete glam set 

I’m really in love with it. 

This set being a PvP set you buy for Wolf Marks, it’ll be a couple of runs until I get the currency.

PvP series 3 has started and with it a new set of rewards.

Like I said a few shows ago, I want to aim for the attire this time around and that takes Series Level 25. So far I'm at Series Level 5 with an afternoon's work. Only a few victories, most losses, but that’s ok. There is a mount at Level 15, so there is that too, and at Level 5 I got the emote “Linkperl” that makes your character raise their hand to their ear, like you can see my character do, since I’m using the emote, and the sound of a call being made is heard.

That PvP grind brought me and with it the title of “Tablesetter”.
