I hope/assume this is an appropriate place for this.

I was just wondering what armors you guys were planning to get for your ranger. I'm going to be a Human Ranger and have been set on it ever since I started playing it in GW1. However, I am have trouble deciding what armor I want. I usually like to pick an armor to strive for, so to speak. I've spent a lot of time previewing armors over the weekend but nothing really stood out.

Here is a pic of all the dungeon armors (except the top left, Ascalonian, is incorrect.) http://www.guildwars..._197_456444.png.

Me rambling about each armor, don't feel compelled to read this part.
Spoiler

So yeah, is there an armor you just see as a perfect fit for your ranger?

Also, does anyone have any idea how many other medium armor sets there are excluding dungeon and cultural armors?

I found a great jacket in the Asura zone all the way to the east (hylek events nearby).  This is probably the armor that I will wear for a long time.  Reall simply trench coat, couple of straps along the chest and a high collar.  Very classy looking.

I thought the 2nd tier human armor was absolutely excellent. I'd probably end up using that. I always thought Elite Drakescale was the best in Guild Wars (original color).

I also thought the Dvinity Council's Justice set was alright. I also really liked the Swinder's Coat and transmuted that into everything else. I also found the Lion's Guard Karma Jacket mentioned above and I thought it was pretty alright. The crafted Seeker's Armor was also pretty good. Pretty much everything that wasn't the first tier human armor was okay with me.

i like the third armor, Id definitely wear that but with a hood. I prefere hoods over half masks so Ill make a hood/cloak set.

I was overall disappointed with how dungeon armors look on a Charr, which now has me torn between Sylvari / Charr Ranger. I could just be that the Charr pics were taken on an angle which could potentially be ruining the armor.

This is what I will be wearing for a long time. I'm a fan of simple/realistic armor with minimal spikes/fantasy look. Lots of transmutation stones in my future. ^_^

IMO medium armour pales down in comparion with Heavy armour. The heavy cathegory includes some of the coolest armours in game.

Though there are few medium sets I really like. It actually depends a lot on how you dye them.

Maybe I should wait till release to check however.... Im very interested to know what the Charr medium armors will look like from behind. Orrian armor for example has that bone tail going down the back, but with the Charr tail in the way im not sure how it will end up looking....

The only PvE related armor im enjoying based off the screenshots for Charr is their tier 3 racial armor ( based off the Medium armor sets ).

Ill most likely go with the t3 racial armor for my female Norn ranger. Best medium armor so far IMO. However... were still to see what crafting and renown vendors have to offer.

Arent the PvP armor sets simply copies of PvE armor sets as far as appearance goes?

From what I've seen, yes.


I'll probably get racial armor first, since I don't have to do any dungeons, then CoF then Orr armor.

I always go simple looking armor, and ornate weapons.  Honestly, the rawhide coat and marksman pants are very slick looking.

Same. I like the Norn medium armors better than any of the dungeon sets, by far.

Well if no Dungeon armor stood out to you, rest assured, something will! In the Stress Test apparently you could preview all armors from a PvP locker and some guy posted a bunch of them in this thread: http://www.guildwars...-of-raw-images/

Some that looked cool to me:

Not sure if I'd keep the hat though, might just try to get a classic ranger mask.

Again, would try to get a classic mask.

Seems a tad plain but with the right dyes I think it would look badass.

Dno if I'd actually get this but if you want you could be one cool pirate.

A nice classic look if all else fails.

There were other but I don't want to post too many. Top is probably my favorite.

Tier one norn racial will be one of my first goals for combat armor. (Subject to change as more options become available.)
