Regarding Armor...

#1zrh5033Posted 3/13/2012 6:24:17 PM
As far as ive seen/ heard/ read, the armor in the game is class category specific (scholar, adventurer, soldier categories) which unless im reading wrong kind of stinks IMO. So i am curious will there be race and class specific armir as well because i really would like my sylvari to be plant armored and i want my charr mesmer to look like a Mesmer (as hideous as that may be.) Is anyone else bothered by this?

I read in one of the articles (think it was when they redesigned the slyvari) that there will be armour that can only be worn by certain races.

I hope the equiptment in GW2 isn't shallow and scant. I don't think developers realize how important equiptment scaling is to the player in games sometimes.

I imagine they'll have plenty of armor to choose from. Whats the point to further yourself in the game if there aren't any shiny new pixels to look at.

if we take GW1 as an example, we will have a massive amount of customization for your character

There is no try, only do and do not.

Thats what im hoping for. I made this thread because very little armor has been shown and what i have seen hasnt impressed me... heres hoping for diverse armor.

and weapons too! Although, honestly, hearing about ghostly sets and also weapons made of ice that have a chance to shatter on hit for extra damage make me feel like there will be some good distribution of custom content. My only real worry at this point is how WvW will function.

Also I've seen masks along the same style as mesmers, in some youtube footage.
But since mesmer can now wear headgear for scholar professions, they can wear much more than that.
