    That is what my egineer is wearing at lvl 80... lol

    I transmuted my rare armor to look like this.

    Yeah I'll probably do the same. I just thought of what it reminded me of.. Have you ever seen the anime Trigun? His clothes look pretty similar.

    When it comes to dyes and cosmetic fluff then LOTRO has GW2 beat hand down. The med armour in GW2 is a joke and is very limited, thank god you can dye your armour because without the dye system it would be very poor indeed.

    Now as for non cap weapons/armour then Vanguard has it beat hands down again. You can do your first major dungon at level 8 and it will give you very nice red weapons and armour. The choice of weapons and armour kills GW2 dead and really shows how lacking the item choice in GW2 really is.

    From level 10 once you have all your first armour sets in Vanguard you look better than you would at top level in GW2.

    It's definitely without a doubt a matter of opinion.. I see toons that look amazing in their armor everywhere I go.  But I do love Vanguards also!  Well exept for the stupid ex devs that cut the midriff out of most of the female robes *grrr*

    However in my opinion light clothig looks the best and has best variety and customization for your character. Even heavy armor is ok but medium armor is just ughhh... long  coats..long coats and more long coats.

    Not all leather armor are coats. Duelist armor (and not my char, just a random pic from the net).

    No where i said all leather armor are coats. But i did say we need more variety in comparison to light sets.

    And since medium armor have very few peices for variations. I see almost every lvl 80 female  thief running in duelist set. Its like being in world of clones.

    Thief, engineer and rangers should not share same armor designs. Thats is why adding more variety would be nice from lvl 1 to 80.

    Duh, you are comparing Vanilla GW2 with LOTRO 5+ years after release. Of course Lotro have more skins. At launch it wasnt as impressing.

    I dont agree with you about Vanguard, GW2s armors look way better except the blue vendortrash.

    You'd probably have more time to play if you werent averaging 18+ posts per day.

    Yes, thts pretty weird, putting posts in a forum. Wht will be the next thing? Praying at church? Learning at school? Some people are just downright excentric.

  • jpnzjpnz SydneyPosts: 3,529Member

    Pretty happy with my armor choices so far.

    Then again, I haven't tried medium yet as I've only played Ele / War / Guard / Mes.

    I agree light armor is the best in terms of customisation.

    Heavy armor is more your 'cover everything' which is realistic but leaves little for customisation.

    Ah, sorry I kinda thought you implied that, my fault, monday morning...

    But yes, we need more variety, but frankly do even cloth needs that, a few more bad@ss necro armors wouldnt hurt either.

    The coolest theif armor is by far the human cultural T3 armor in my opinion.

    There are some a bit more revealing later in the game, but I guess a more experienced fighter actually needs less armor than a farmer who get a sword in his hand and are told he is a warrior now.

    I want it to, but it is 55 gold just for the chest and leggings, and I waste the about 1:50 gold I get in most days on crafting and gear for my alts right now.

    Funny enough couldnt I find a good picture of the male armor... I actually tried.

  • jpnzjpnz SydneyPosts: 3,529Member

    Female Human on all my chars cause my god, do armor on male (all races) suck.

    That image above is borderline NSFW Loke666. :P

    Five years or five weeks GW2 system is not that good and the games armour choices are naff.

     

    Vanguard trumps GW2 in armour looks from early levels to late level.

    Have they added social armor slots yet or you still need t desroy a set to transmute the looks into another?

    I would love to see something a bit more blatantly Steampunk. Especailly for the Engineer. But as far as Med armor, I have to say, I like this look the best.....Minus the facemask.

    really like that one:)

    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

    many other games have more overall sets even at their launch but as far as looks i haven't played a game i felt had as much of a variety of good looking armor sets even at lower levels

    LotRO still uses the same meshes 5 years later.  They've added new textures, but you essentially have the same damn thing now that we had 5 years ago and they don't look better at all.  The LotRO dye system sucks as well.

    Of course it's all subjective.  I like the look of my characters in EQ2, RIFT, and STO.  I'm not sure why Rimmersman brought LotRO or Vanguard into the topic.  This topic is about GW2 cosmetics.  Some of them just can't avoid the derail I guess.

    I have an awesome steampunk mask that I'll try and remember to post a picture of it later.  I got it as a drop, but I'm trying to figure out if I have a recipe to make a skin that looks like it.

    What would be really cool is if a crafter could deconstruct drops and learn the skin for a recipe and then choose the stats for each skin as it is crafted.

    If I do come up with a crafted recipe for the steampunk goggles I would be more than happy to make them for you.  I'll try and look into this tonight.  Work has been crazy and I haven't got to play much for the last week or so.

    Less than 2% of the players actually care about cosmetics, and P2W business model developers label you guys as peacocks.

    I know it's much to ask of a MMORPG forumite, but could you please provide me the source of that number?
