I really need to finish the main story...
OK, so you don't learn appearances from gaining items? You get the styles you've learned from motifs?Iselin said:Outfits are not like costumes. They're per character.TheDarkrayne said:The outfit system, I've not found this info anywhere.. do you have to keep the items or does it unlock them permanently? Account wide or not?
Each character you have or create gets one outfit "template" included. You can fill each slot (chest, head, arms, weapons, etc.) with any style for that slot that any character in your account has learned including all the freebies (each character you create knows their own racial style, imperial edition adds the imperial style, etc.) That outfit and its dye can be changed as often as you want but each time you do it costs the same as if you were doing it from scratch based on the style you're using.
The gold cost per slot varies depending on the rarity of the style you're using and dyeing outfit slots also costs gold unlike dyeing your regular gear or costumes.
You're just adjusting the outfit template for that character but you're not creating a costume that would become an account wide collectible.
You can also buy additional blank outfit templates from the cash shop if for some reason you want to have more than one for a given character and those are also per character.
TBH, it's not something that's a huge attraction for me. I played around with it on the PTS just to check it out but I haven't bothered to do any on the live server.
