wtf is iwth the silk stockings at 2:45 lol.

some small pieces look coolish like the handguards and upper arms a little after that point, others make him look like frankenstein's monster heh. what i don't get about the size...and i understand why they did it as they did...is why don't they drop the armor underneath when you install the ornament? All char models have a "nude" graphic when first created with very minimal armor, and when files are still being loaded especially in guild lobby, you can see the truly nude models quite often without even the starter armor graphics. There should be a way they can disable the armor first then enable the new graphics, then they wouldnt have to make it look like you're wearing armor 3sizes too big for you.

i too would like to see these issues with drakkin. i suppose i could just load in test and see how bad it is.

edit: on that note, the bp's don't all look horrible at least on thefemale drakkin but some do...question is if we'll be able to dye them in any way. that's also only the set on vender there. the other slots looked way oversized for the most part, the chain chest and maybe legs are tolerable though. rewards i had saved had a few pieces but couldnt even see the one, like it removed all graphic, think was the wrist, and i didnt fuck with turning on helms to see the helm. the sleeves were a little oversized but hard to judge without other pieces to go with. I think the thing about armor showing through, at least with what i saw, was that if you previewed the legs you were no longer previewing the bp, and thus the original bp graphic will show through the leg ornament andl ook bad, but i didn't see any signs of a bp showing through a bp or legs through legs etc.

boots and helms are nightmares... but ya know, after 13 years of the depressingly plain... the MOST plain plate armor graphic in game(female human) i'll still get it. I just hope there's some differentiation in those graphics between genders. Don't want my toon to resemble Hilary Clinton in a pantsuit.

that's another thing I never thought of, but I don't recall seeing any of this on female characters, or is it just the same old stuff? Wouldn't surprise me but it would be nice.

Also something I'm sure I'd be in the manority for is if they released custom-sex armor, such as a classic Firiona Vie boxart set, or Rallos Zek. I know people would get sick of seeing the same thing over and over but I do imagine it would easily bring in quite a bit of cash for those people that love the popular thing.

*If the game goes to the 'bikini/swimsuit' or 'school uniform' route for custom armor though, I can honestly say I'd have a hard time justifying myself playing without an option to turn those off.

I thought FV was how a naked HE looked like

but that's a tasty thought... i wouldn't mind a variation of Saryrn gear... damn that's a really good idea... some of the gots had some decent looks but may not totally translate to armor slots... but if they can put the god weapon ornaments up, why not.

You're probably right lol but maybe the more updated box version then?



It's got a more armor-ish look to it and I doubt they could screw up that headpiece

if i can get on it while they're patching live, ill make a male drakkin and see if it looks the same as on teh female. what i saw on the female did look pretty unisex but was definitely a pronounced breast area in the bp's at least, whereas some graphics in game now there isnt really a difference in the chest bt males and females just size-difference. the bp, with the legs im alreayd wearing, from thevender in pok anyway, was pretty effeminate if only bc it was like a 3/4 shirt with belly showing and hte pants were hiphuggers with the usual bp look or the nude-drakkin chest look removing the higher-rise hip-drape graphic.

ok the male drakkin armor looks the same as the female except the bp shape is more smooth less..boob. ..however unless you like gay porn do NOT make a male drakkin at lvl 1 and no armor and load him in to check it out, when you preview the bp's they sit there in their bp and little see-through brown mesh speedo's buttcrack and package in your face lol

Holy hell.

Looks like it won't even be possible to choose a few of the "better" pieces to mix and match with the older armor look, given how out of proportion the new pieces are with the old look/models. Either go with an entire suit to have the same proportions for all armor pieces, or stick with the older look.

Even if ALL of these new armor ornamentations were cool looking (which the vast majority I've seen so far are not), they would still make a toon look 2-3 times bigger than current models.

Take a teeny tiny wood elf or dark elf and slap them in this and they'll be the size of an ogre, LOL. An ogre will look like a freaking hill giant!

Oy vey.

To be fair that screenshot was I think from previewing the stuff from reward window. The stuff from the vendor is at least more form-fitting; eg., Hero's Forge Plate Legs Ornament:
What's going on with that ballooned up other type I have no idea. I guess that's for people that want to look like the Hulk with armor on or something.

Quite a stark contrast between those two pics, heh.
