Final Fantasy 14 is humming along nicely with its third expansion, Shadowbringers. The reviews are in and they are very positive — mostly calling this the best expansion yet. But that hasn’t put a stop to the FF14 Fashion Report. This Gold Saucer mini-game remains the number one way to farm MGP every week. Then you can turn around and use that currency to unlock exclusive rewards! There are several mounts in particular that will set you back a pretty penny (or a few million of them). That’s why every week we put together this FF14 Fashion Report guide! Let’s take a look at the Fashion Report for Week 76 in FF14.
It’s another fairly easy Fashion Report this week! The “easy 80” — the Fashion Report score that provides the maximum reward for minimal effort — isn’t bad at all. Players at level 10 and above should be able to scrape together the bare minimum with next to no effort. Although your mileage may vary when it comes to one specific, but fairly common dye this week.

FF14 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 almost every slot on your character. This will earn you a minimum of 68 Fashion Report points for no work at all! This doesn’t include Soul Crystals, belts, or off-hand items, however.
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 Week 76 – July 12, 2019
The easy 80 Fashion Report points for Week 76 are, in fact, exceptionally easy. You basically just need to be level 10 on literally any class. That will allow you to purchase and wear a pair of Amateur’s Slops. These pants provide +10 Gathering and not a whole lot else.
Despite looking plain, however, they are just what the doctor ordered this week. That’s because you can get them for only a few hundred gil from any Merchant & Mender NPC in all three starting cities: Limsa Lominsa (Lower Decks), Old Gridania, or Ul’Dah (Steps of Thal). You can even get them in a variety of areas throughout the world.
Once you get the slops, it’s time to complement your outfit with something else. Dyes are the easiest, surest, and cheapest method this week (more on that below). But higher-level players also have a few more options this week. Wear any of the following items together to get your easy 80 points in the Fashion Report!
Here’s a fuller list of Fashion Report options for Week 76:
- Head – N/A
- Body – Ruby Cotton Gillet of Striking, Ruby Cotton Gillet of Scouting, Valerian Smuggler’s Gillet, Valerian Rogue’s Gillet
- Gloves – False Nails (Ananta Beast Tribe)
- Legs – Amateur’s Slops
- Feet – N/A
- Earrings – N/A
- Ring – Scintillant Ring, Palladium Band, Diamond Ring, Carborundum Ring
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 fully correct dyes. Bear in mind that you must supplement your outfit with at least two top-level dyes if you use only one of the gear items listed above.
One of the best Fashion Report dyes this week appears to be Soot Black. You can only purchase this outright after reaching a certain level of reputation with the Ixal Beast Tribe. That might be impossible to do this week, if you haven’t already started their questline. Don’t fret, though! Nophica Green can be had for a pittance at any Dyemonger in any major city. Wine Red is a bit trickier, but those with high-level crafting classes can make it on their own. Otherwise you should be able to buy it from the market board. It was going for roughly 400 gil per pot on my server (Excalibur).
The best dyes for the FF14 Fashion Report this week are:
- Weapon – Wine Red (Crafting)
- Head – Soot Black (Ixal Beast Tribe)
- Body – Dark Purple (Real Money Purchase)
- Gloves – Soot Black (Ixal Beast Tribe)
- Legs – Soot Black (Ixal Beast Tribe)
- Feet – Nophica Green (Dyemongers)
FF14 Fashion Report Tips for This Week
This is another fairly easy week for the FF14 Fashion Report. Most people should be able to get the easy 80 points with little trouble — practically none if you’ve reached Kugane in Stormblood. The Amateur’s Slops, plus the two dyes suggested above, are your easiest bet. But if for some reason you absolutely can’t get your hands on Wine Red Dye, then try for a Ruby Gillet. You can purchase either of them for cash via Muto in Kugane.
If you’re lower than level 60, and still can’t get Wine Red Dye, things get trickier. Ixali Vendor dye becomes the next easiest way to complement your outfit. You can purchase a pot or two of Soot Black Dye for a pittance. But not everyone bothers to do their Beast Tribe quests… If you’re Ixal reputation is low, however, you can still craft Soot Black Dye yourself at level 30 on various crafting Jobs.
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 60,000 or more MGP. Until then, good luck and have fun out there, adventurers!
