    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.

    BC is my favorite zone. I'd love to see armor that perfectly matches the "Retro-Tech" look and feel.

    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?

    I dont get caught up in looks at all when I play an MMO, it just means nothing to me.  But it appears their are a larger number of people that will chase that carrot instead of character progression.

     

    I guess thats why I cant stomach most of the stuff out of Korea, since it appears that is the primary driver for most of their games, looks and sex appeal.

    Yep, he did. In an entirely unscientific poll on this site it turned out that a great majority (like over 80% of the respondents I think) did indeed care about cosmetic items which surprised me, because its just not something I'm concerned about.

    But I'm out of touch when it comes to mainstream gamers, that much I know. image

    Ya I am loving playing around with armor combinations. Here is my TA set with deathly pauldrons from halloween and Karma helm. My aim now is to get Arah torch and scepter as well as Arah boots, gauntlets and helm. TA + Arah combination is just amazing.

    Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

    Nice thread, i will post my main character:

    She's wearing some pieces of the krytan armor skin from the gem shop and the pirate needler, one of the few shortbows that looks like a longbow. I like this armor because it's not a coat and looks awesome when i go with my black moa, both of them looks badass. I hope Anet adds more classic GW1 armors like this in the future, i don't care if it's in the gem shop. Now i am aiming to get pieces of the cultural armor mixed with some pieces of my order's armor to get a unique feel, but they are sooo expensive...

    And this is when you turn into the avatar of Balthazar in one of the personal story missions, i wanted to share this image because it's awesome when you use the Hounds of Balthazar elite skill with it, i want more transformations like this in the future.

    obtained my first "carrot" just a couple of weeks back. the amount of farming needed to obtain it was quite hefty but totally worth it, imo. image

    i think people who can't find anything to strive for in the game just don't really care about cosmetics or just haven't found the look they want. the game is definitely lacking in the skins department atm, which is surprising tbh. i hope they add more and more armorsets and variety in the coming months so that more people can find their "carrot" to keep them playing.

     

    i'm pretty sure ANet has a ton of artists working for them, so why not have some work on more armorskins? so far, all named lvl 80 exotic armors within the same armor class  look the same. hell, even the Mad King exotics have the same skins as those.

    Is this a legendary? If so may I ask, how much did you spend?

    Yea Grimrist, T3 Asuran Heavy is indeed badass. The T3 stuff generally is awesome but very expensive to obtain. I like your dye choices as well.

    I don't have a lvl 80 yet interestingly (I'm to much an altoholic heh) but my Main wears Cultural armor. Specifically T1 Sylvari armor transmuted into lvl 60 crafted cloth. I particlarly like the dyes I chose for it. I think they fit the look perfectly. :)

    FYI for those who love seeing folks armor and dye choices (and yea GW2 has more armor and weapon skins than any new MMOG I think I've ever seen) I highly recommend checking out the newish subreddit on the subject.

    I started from day one with a main focus on obtaining this weopon. I bought the pre-cursor for 60 Gold on like day 5 or 6. 100 gold for runestones and I bougth 100 charged lodestones for about 68 gold at the time. Farmed most of the other mats, but did buy a few of them. I would say all in all since I started really early it probably cost me 400-450 total gold. The karma was actually the hardest part for me. That's just a straight up grind and get lucky at the forge for Clovers which I did get really lucky.

    My color scheme is basically "Iron" with some "wrath" on the mask.  I have 2 pieces of the armor set I'm working toward and any skin I don't like, I'll thow the hall of monuments skin on.

    In this pic, apparently I wanted to show off my huge sword...

    and hey, you can't dress for battle all the time - sometimes I just want to chill...

     

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

If you don't like the Arah heavy set, mix it with CoF or Dredge armour for example and use the colours that fits best.

    Ehmm who is whining? or just trying to stir up shit here because you don't like a peaceful topic for a change?  as far as medium armor is concerned. It is true that very few peices offer variations. Most of it is long over coats. A long coat is a long coat whether it is pink, red or yellow. We are talking about actualy design and not about the colors. Currently medium armor doesn't even go wo with the class for example engineer and thieves.

    GW1 had best varity for medium armor and it is a shame devs didn't follow armor design from GW1.

    As others said. light armor has the best varity and my mesmser looks different than say ELE and Necro.

    I see many whine on how armor looks bad on different forums. I know Medium got alot of coats but there are sets that don't have coats... use those armour pieces with the set you want. I played GW1 since start, yes there are a few non-coats, mainly because of the Assassin doesn't looks good in it so ArenaNet made those armour sets for the Assassin. Ranger mostly had coats, same with Dervish.

    And their 'whinning' is justified. I and others have already acknowledged that not all medium armor consists of longcoats but they do over shaodw the over all  medium armor design.

    Look i just want me engineer to look like an engineer. When i finally find something that suits me i saddens mee to see that a thief is also wearing the same set and so is a ranger. There is very little indivduality between the classes and if all this 'whining' wakes up Anet and they add new variotions based on classes, it is only a good thing.
