Do away with costumes for relevant armor appearance

6 posts in this topic

Posted

This game is great, but my biggest gripe is with the armor all appearing the same, its a complete disappointment, one of the biggest pieces of excitement in these sorts of games is when you get a new piece of equipment or armor, you want to try it on and check out the new appearance, it makes grinding for hours on end to buy/upgrade your armor feel pointless because it still looks as it was before, each piece of armor should have its own unique appearance when placed on the character also, the helmets? really? most of them don't even display? seriously need to sort this out, you have an excellent game here, and its being let down by the basics.

In-game armor was gimped ages ago for better cash shop promotion, it isn't an oversight it's a intended system. If you look up early beta footage for kr you can see what armor choices were meant to be in this game, you'll even notice some models that have been repurposed from armor choices to cash shop costumes.

But it sucks! its a shoddy way of earning extra cash, I also play elder scrolls online, that has a lot of armor choices and upgrades etc, with costumes as well as the armors. This games trade system is incredible, and the vast array of other features like workers, npc interactions and nodes etc shouldn't be let down by such a serious lack of armor appearance and customization. (Even the small amount of costumes is a disaster, and the fact they're so over the top flashy and so flamboyant).

Yeah it's awful but I'm just pointing out how unlikely it is to change, the lack of options isn't a mistake, this game revolves around butchering game features for the sake of cash shop promotion.

Actually yeah.

The funniest thing is that the BIS armor (so with Dim Tree) is even uglier than the regular ones, and litterally screams out loud "Buy me a costume to cover my ugliness and i'll give you the stats ... Or look like a stupid bush for the rest of your life"

How can they sell all that outfits if they start making armors look different and nice? It would be great but I doubt it's going to happen, they seem to have other priorities.
