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. Glamour Dressers were added in Patch 4.2, allowing for 400 items to be stored at the cost of 1 Glamour Prism (each) and their appearance can be reused over and over. They are found in Inn Rooms.

  • 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.


From patch 4.1 onward, players only need to be level 15+ to unlock Glamours. Old unlock quests Feature QuestA Self-improving Man and Feature QuestSubmission Impossible can now be done at level 15. Requirements for recipe books and recipes are also reduced to level 15.

Additionally, new, alternative unlock quests have been added in Vesper Bay in Western Thanalan:

Feature QuestIf I Had a Glamour

Feature QuestAbsolutely Glamourous

Glamour Creation

  1. Note the Requirements and Restrictions above — the glamour will only work if is it equal to or below the level of the item you apply it to. 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.
