Glamours is A Realm Reborn's Vanity System. It allows the player to transform the appearance of his or her gear into that of other gear. The transformation only affect the appearance of that piece of gear and does not affect its stats. It allows the player to take on various appearances, regardless of the gear he or she is wearing.

The glamour system can be used on all gear the same or lower equipment level than your current gear. After using a glamour prism, the gear being copied can be entrusted to your retainer. As long as the base gear and the gear being copied occupy the same number of gear slots, you can copy the appearance of any gear equippable by your current class or job.

  • The glamour system was introduced in Patch 2.2.
  • The glamour system was updated in Patch 4.2 to standardize Prism type and Glamour process.

Glamours may be cast with any items that meet the following conditions:

  1. The base and projected items are of the same type.

  • The appearance of the base item will be used in the event your current class cannot equip the projected item.
  • Glamours may be temporarily disabled in PvP arenas and other unique areas.

New (Create Glamours Once and Use Many Times)

Glamour Creation

  1. Note the Requirements and Restrictions above — the new glamour will keep the level of the item you're going to destroy to make it. Note that it's the "level" (as in the minimum level the character has to be) NOT the "item level" which affects whether the glamour will work.
  2. Ensure that you have a Glamour Prism (one of the new ones, not just one of the old crafting specific prisms).
  3. Ensure that you're in possession of an item which you want to use the appearance of but which you're happy to destroy, because that's what's going to happen.
  4. Ensure that the item you're going to turn into a glamour is not equipped.
  5. Go to your Glamour Dresser, there's one in your Inn room, and use it.
  6. Two windows will open. On the right is the Glamour Creation window.
  7. If it's in your inventory, rather than your armoury, you'll be able to find the item in the list right now.
  8. If it's in your armoury click on "Location" and then the relevant section. At this point you should be able to find the item.
  9. Either way, once you've found it, click on it.
  10. Make sure you've selected the right item before you take "Yes" from the dialog, because once you've done that the item you've chosen will be destroyed and it will become a glamour (and a Glamour Prism will be used up).

Glamour Plate Creation

Once you have one or more glamours you can apply them either individually or in groups to a Glamour Plate.

  1. Go to your Glamour Dresser, there's one in your Inn room, and use it.
  2. Two windows will open. On the left is the Glamour Dresser window.
  3. Click on "Edit Glamour Plates"
  4. The Glamour Plate Creation window opens.
  5. Click on the plate you want to set up, one of the numbered buttons at the top. A plate is a term for an outfit, although it won't necessarily overwrite the entire outfit, i.e. you don't have to fill all the slots to use it.
  6. To either side of the image of you are the slots.
  7. Click one of the ones for which you've created a glamour.
  8. Click the glamour in the Gear Selection window.
  9. Repeat the above two steps until you have the outfit you'll want to apply.
  10. Click Save.

Glamour Plate Application

Old (One Glamour Prism used per item per change)

One Use Glamour

First, ensure that you are in possession of the gear whose appearance you wish to alter (the base item), the gear whose appearance you wish to project (the projected item), and the corresponding glamour prism. Select the base item, then choose Cast Glamour from the subcommand menu.

The glamour prism will be consumed upon use, but no gear will be lost in the process. Furthermore, gear used to cast glamours will be bound upon use of a glamour prism.

  • Uncasting a glamour requires the use of a glamour dispeller.

Old vs New

Pro Old

  • It doesn't destroy an item to use it.
  • You can apply glamours outside cities.

Pro New

  • You can make one or more Glamours and reuse them over and over without it costing you any extra Glamour Prisms.
  • Glamour Plates have there own storage space, so applying a look you've already created a Plate for to a new item doesn't need anything else with you. A minor consideration, but if space is at a premium…

Removing Glamours

When in possession of a glamour dispeller, the Remove option will be available in the Cast Glamour interface.

Glamour Prism

Players need to have Glamour Prism in his or her inventory to cast Glamour. As of 4.2, all past armor-specific prisms may be traded in at the Calamity Salvager for the new, generic Glamour Prism.

  • Glamour Prism: For projecting the appearance of equipment item.

Crafting Prisms

Each crafting class may create a generic Glamour Prism when the recipe is learned. The generic prism works for all armor types.

After completing the quest Submission Impossible, players will be able to purchase master recipe books, as well as the clear prisms needed to craft glamour prisms.

Clear prisms can purchased from the following Bango Zango in Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks(X9,Y11), Maisenta in New Gridania (X11, Y11) and Roarich in Ul'dah - Steps of Nald (X10,Y9).
