    Froma post i did earlier today...

    Please fix:

    "The main thing that really irks me about this game is the icons for, items, weapons, abilities, darn near anything. They are so lackluster in appearance. I really feel like they dropped the ball on this. I want my loot to look like something cool. It is just not the case in this game and it really bugs me. With today’s technology this is just pure laziness on the art/designers part."

    The whole interface has a sober, yet very clean and effective design.

    The icons match this design!  And I don't mind it a damn bit. As the only thing I am looking at those icons, is when I am swapping gear, slotting new gear / Weapons and compairing stats.

    That you don't like it, doesn't automatically mean everyone else dislikes it too.

    I like the UI interface design of TSW a lot!  Just like I like the UI interface design of GW2.

    Exactly.  Which is why I like this move.  Joel was instrumental in the xpac RotGS which was awesome.
