Lets talk Greatswords

In before 100 blades is OP'ed and needs nerfed.  Nope this thread is about the looks and appearance of greatswords. I just found an image of what is possibly the most badass looking greatsword I have ever seen.

    I dont like much the disco-stick style "epic" weapons in fantasy games, I hope I get to change the skin of my weapons in GW2 to look more normal. I just want a huge iron sword or hammer that maybe has some gold carvings to make it look expensive, not a weapon full of glitter, flames, lights, sparkles or any other stuff that makes it look like just a mess or a huge maglite lol.

     

    Same goes with armour, heavy armour that looks something like a real knight armour beats any "epic" heavy carnival-jacket that is filled with led-lights. It is possible to change the appearance of your stuff, right?

     

    Yeah I'm boring that way :P

    I got one from the shaman event in wayfarer foothills that had furs and feathers wrapped around the blade with leather. Was so hot. Might have a screenshot on my comp.....

    If only legendaries were that easy to acquire. Right now they seem to require a riduclous amount of skill point grinding, gathering and maybe a bit of luck. I predict that the first legendary will be acquired 1 1/2 months after release.

     Yeah, it's totally possible to change the appearance of your stuff.

    As a weaponsmith, I learned how to make a wooden one hand sword.  Crappy damage, looks like it's two slabs of woods attached at the cross point with a nail.

    I'm going to use that skin at level 80. :D

    Most of the good looking 'normal' armor appears to be around the 30-50 levels or so... when it starts getting elaborate, buto nly in the real world sense.  So just use those skins. :)

    Where does one even find any info on these legendary items, I believe this thread for me is the first time ive ever heard of them o.O

     

    EDIT: Just found it on a wiki apparently - anyway, there appears to be mystic items as well which apparently should be of higher quality ?

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    I'm fine with glowing runes or even an aura with some particle effects about the item, but otherwise I agree, I'd prefer a more realistic/normal look.  The stuff that looks like 50lbs of metal crudely shaped into something...pass.

    Great, I wasnt sure if I can change only certain stuff.

     

    Will the wooden sword get named "Humiliation" at 80? :P
