Final Fantasy 14 makes no bones about making its players look good. Fashion is such an important aspect of the game, in fact, that developer Square Enix introduced the FF14 Fashion Report. This weekly challenge lets players play dress-up for fabulous prizes. Well, more specifically the challenge awards massive amounts of MGP (a special currency used in the Manderville Gold Saucer) that can be exchanged for prizes. You just need to earn the ever-elusive easy 80 points in the Fashion Report by wearing the correct clothing every weekend.
FF14 Fashion Report Scoring – The Basics
As always, you want to have at least one random piece of gear equipped to every slot on your character. This will earn you a minimum of 68 Fashion Report points for no work at all! It also doesn’t include Soul Crystals, so don’t worry about whatever Job you have equipped.
From there, you can increase your score by matching the categories laid out by the Fashion Report judge, as well as adding certain dyes. Matching the correct category of clothing to the weekly theme is worth anywhere from 6-10 points. The correct color of dye (e.g. grey, white, black, etc.) is worth one bonus point per slot, while finding the right shade of dye (e.g. Ice Blue, Chocolate Brown, etc.) is worth two points per slot.
Using dye to boost your Fashion Report score is typically easier than matching every category of item perfectly. That’s because most dyes are awfully cheap and accessible, while most pieces of clothing are expensive — or else require high ranks in crafting Jobs to create. That’s not always the case, of course, since some dyes are only available for special currencies or with real money from the Mog Station.
FF14 Fashion Report: Easy 80 Points for the Weekend of May 31, 2019
Low level players, rejoice! As long as you’ve reached level 16 and have access to one of the FF14 capital cities (which you should if you’re worried about the FF14 Fashion Report in the first place), you should have no trouble getting an easy 80 points. players have it easy this week. Nearly all of the dyes this week are available from Dyemongers. And there are multiple gold rated armor pieces available for a pittance from NPC vendors.
Your journey to get an easy 80 points in the FF14 Fashion Report this week starts in any capital city. Then speak to Gwalter in Sapphire Avenue Exchange (Ul’Dah), Domitien by the Rosewood Stalls (Gridania), or Iron Thunder in East Hawkers’ Alley (Limsa Lominsa). Any one of them can sell you Leather boots and Hard Leather Ringbands. Just check the Level 1-9 and Level 10-19 Disciple of Magic stock. You can pick up the pair for a little under 1000 gil.
There are other options, but the ones up above are by far the cheapest. If you really want to see some other choices, however, here are some other selections for the FF14 Fashion Report this week.
- Body – Any “Chimerical Felt…” category shirt.
- Hands – Hard Leather Ringbands, Goatskin Ringbands, Boarskin Ringbands, any “Boarskin Ringbands of…” category gloves.
- Feet – Leather Boots.
- Earrings – Most red-colored earrings, such as Rubellite and Garnet Earrings.
If you have any one of these, or manage to acquire one, you can supplement the rest of your outfit by using two or more correct dyes. Bear in mind that you must supplement your outfit with at least two dyes if you use only two of the gear items listed above. The dyes for the FF14 Fashion Report this week are:
- Weapon – Grape Purple (Dyemongers)
- Head – Goobbue Grey (Dyemongers)
- Body – Russet Brown (Dyemongers)
- Legs – Metallic Red (real money purchase)
- Feet – Russet Brown (Dyemongers)
FF14 Fashion Report Tips for This Week
This is an exceptionally easy week for the FF14 Fashion Report, after last week’s slightly more dire requirements. Just about anyone should be able to get the easy 80 points with next to zero trouble. Just bear in mind that, while you purchase Hard Leather Ringbands and Leather Boots as “Disciple of Magic” gear, they both actually work for all combat classes in FF14. So you don’t have to start playing a Red Mage, or go out and hit level 16 as a Thaumaturge. Just pay your pittance of gil and you’re all set!
And, as is always the case, you must first complete the quest “Color Your World” to apply dye in FF14. You can start it at level 15 as any class by speaking to Swyrgeim in Western Thanalan (X: 12.6 Y: 14.3). Even if you can hit the easy 80 points this week without dyes, it’s well worth doing for future FF14 Fashion Report checks. You’ll even get a couple of free dyes for your trouble, to start! These are normal Dyemonger dyes. As such, they will often work for the FF14 Fashion Report in future weeks.
And there you have it! This should put you on the right path for the FF14 Fashion Report this week. Be sure to check in next Friday for another update, and instructions on how to farm your 80,000 MGP. Until then, good luck and have fun out there, adventurers!
