    As much skin showing as possible, with optional badass looking ones ofc.

    That's why I like Japanese and Korean mmo titles, they know how to do it.

    Warframe designs are awesome, just wish you could remove the helms and have a human face as optional too.

    Through the years of MMOs, we've all seen a ton of armor designs come and go.. From World of Warcraft's over-the-top armor models, City of Heroes create-your-own costumes, and even Vindictus' combat armor and lingerie.. Just about anything you can imagine has been featured in our MMOs.. But what game's armor did you most enjoy collecting, fighting in, and just strutting your stuff?

    Before I vote anything, what are the examples of each category?

    I take it that:

    Realistic(fa) = AoC like stuff

    Realistic(fl) = Like Warhammer Fantasy Empire armours

    Stylized = Like 40k Chaos / SM armour / WoW armour / Warhammer Fantasy Chosen armour

    Social = something akin to GW 2's appearance options? With town attires etc.

    Right?

    While certain times I would prefer God armor, being honest I like the skimpy armor on female characters

    Pretty much dead on.. Note: Social pretty much covers games that have Realistic/Flashy AND still feature large numbers of in-town attire..

    Some prime examples include:
    1) Age of Conan, Life is Feudal
    2) Warhammer Online, Elder Scrolls Online (GW2, Vindictus, and Tera can fit here if you ONLY look at armor style)
    3) World of Warcraft
    4) GW2, Vindictus, Anarchy Online, Everquest II, Tera Online, City of Heroes, DC Universe

    Something along the lines of Dark Souls and Witcher's medieval fantasy.

    I also like futuristic jet propelled suits like the guy from Vanquish. Platinum should make Vanquish 2, by the way.

    3 is a BIG FAT NO then.


    idk...I feel like I'm between 1 and 2. It's surprisingly difficult to choose this thing, you know? Here is how I'll go: I like that the armours / weapons are practical, but they don't have to be ultra practical. I'll allow for some "cool" factor, but the lesser, the better. I think I can agree with Skallagrim on this matter.


    And 4 has nothing to do with aesthetics. It's merely a game functionality that is pretty much necessary for me these days(wardrobes, transmogs etc). But it has next to nothing with the subject.

    I like the factual stuff -- it can be spruced up with magic etc, stylized a bit to taste, but it should look protective and not be obviously bypassable.  I have seen a ton of armor in games that would work horribly as armor.

    Consistant and coherent.

    What I very dislike is when game adds all kind of weirdness after release when intitial designs are realistic.

    If you're starting with realistic then stick to it.

    If you're starting with certain vision and style then stick to it.

    Realistic Flashy and Realistic Factual were both actually used at different periods of time. Some people did adorn their armor with skulls and other trophies and the Romans had pretty flashy armor at different periods. I mean really, those broom helmets weren't entirely necessary.
    I mean, honestly, options #1 and #2 are the same.  Because, there are all sorts of factual historical armor that is in the flashy category.

    Psychological warfare played a pretty big part in many armor designs.  Frightening face masks, monstrous helmets,  etc., all existed way back when.  Roman cavalry helmets to Samurai outfits, etc.  There was no real limit to the diversity in the "factual" category.

    But, for the sake of compliance, I'll pick "flashy".

    I guess I would very much like seeing armor that is plausible, in the sense of being interactive.

    E.g having a jacket on your character, and if you have a magazine in one of the pockets, that would be visible.

    The kind that you loot and put on and you can see yourself wearing them ( Looking at you Black Desert ). And not the frilly Eastern style armor but the classic European medieval style.

    I like a variety of it all..

    I love what UO offered.

    I love what EQ1/2 offered

    I love what WoW offered.

    I love what ESO offers

    For me I guess it comes down to if it fits the game or not.

    Edit : I dislike the style seen in Asian MMOs.

    That's nice!

    I miss the skins you got in games like CoH/CoVs.  What I DON'T LIKE are "skimpy" costumes ONLY for female characters.  Super sexist, but I do enjoy the games that give you free options.  I really care about how my character looks.

    I'm partial to the way the LOTR game series tend to do most of their gear. Very form functional looking, but since it is set in a fantasy world their are a lot of neat features that make them all have their own personality without being some over the top giant dragon helm of purple death eyes.

    Not to say their isn't any super flashy armor in the universe, just generally they tend to be more simple with ruin carvings, pictures, colors, emblems, etc. giving the detail.

    I think most MMOs have armor that appeals to me and armors that make me go ugh.

    World of Warcraft has a lot of armor I really like, it also has armor that make my eyes bleed. Leveling up in TBC was an assault on your eyes. My Shaman gladiator set in Cataclysm made me cry it was so ugly.

    Lineage 2 has tons of armors I like, it is aesthetically appealing. It has a couple that I don't care much for.

    As long as the armor fits the world, I'm good with it. I can't stand the real world stuff in Tera, it just annoys me and prevents me from enjoying the game. BDO is kinda crossing that boundary as well but its undergarments atm so hopefully it'll stay that way.

    I would have preferred a Realistic and Cool version without all the spikes, adornments, and what not.  I'm still waiting for a game to deliver a playable costume of pantaloons and vest -- something with a real Arabian Nights feel to it.

    There's precious little realistic that isn't based on European armor.  How about represent some different cultures and societies in the art work and clothing.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

  • VestigeGamerVestigeGamer Member UncommonPosts: 518
    One thing that is nice about many MMO armors is that none of the "top tier" armor appeals to me.  Cash shop armor also does not appeal to me.  I am spared the "top tier grind" or "cash grabs" that many offer.

    Try EQ2, I am not certain you can get quite the look you have described but you can get very close.

    You will need items from the Imperceptible Beauty set (purchaseable from merchants during the monthly City Festivals, pantaloons (there are several) and a vest not sure if that one exists but it probably does.

    I want armor to look like it actually works, but all armor don't have to look like that, just enough for me.

    Sadly does spikes and similar not really work in real combat since axes and such will get caught on them which would hurt the person wearing them a lot more then if the weapons just bounces of.

    I don't see why a game should have all similar styled armors though unless it is a historical game. Let us pick the style we like. If you want a historical accurate plate mail or a bikinimail should be up to you as a player as long as the armor works for the lore. That certain cultures in the game would prefer certain styles is good though, a Roman armor should look more practical then a amazon armor no matter what sex your character is.
