I promise you this post has no spoilers so read away! 🙂
Whenever a patch hits, folks are quick to dive into the MSQ head first, and rightfully understandable. I probably SHOULD have that mentality, but let’s be real here. My end game is glamour. It’s no secret and I don’t deny it.
So with patch 3.2 “The gears of Change” now live I did naturally what I always do…
I go straight to Jandelaine and we look at the new hairstyles.
I remember in the preview for the patch they showcased the new hairstyles and with them I saw the “Catherine” hairdo. I thought for sure many folks would be diving onto it, so when I went farming for mats and made a lot of auction sales for my “Glamour Gil – Savings” account on my retainer, TsundereKirino, I withdrew 2,000 gil to pick up the hairstyle and try it out.
What I didn’t expect was:
I shit you not the first words I uttered once I did a full 360 looking at this new do’ was, “That’s anime for ya”.
Honest thoughts? I don’t love it. BUT? I don’t hate it either; it’s just different. It looks as if Catherine and Lara Croft from Tomb Raider had a baby and this is the end result. As I normally do with my Cardinal Rules of Garlean Glamour I’m going to rep the look for two weeks to give my 2,000 gil some mileage and the currency spent was not in vain. If I like it? I keep it. If I don’t like it? Back to another one of the regular hairstyles I sport.
What do you think? Is it a keeper? A goer? Is it anime? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂
