I won't buy costumes after launch because we can't wear them when we're out adventuring. If ANet changed the costumes to be like in GW1 where they were just a "skin" over our armor and we could use them while adventuring, I would definitely buy them!


This. I mean, we can wear them out of towns, but we can't fight in them, so i don't see the point in buying fashion in GW2.

What's more, they don't even auto toggle on and off depending if you are in town or not. I never remember to open up the hero panel in town and turn on the town clothes. Too used to being able to set it up and let do it itself in Guild Wars 1.

They need to fix the female sylv town clothes. Shows way more than we need to see. If the art direction for this game was more like tera, where essentially all the female outfits are made with nothing but visual pleasure (for men) in mind.. then maybe it would be less out of place. Seeing that in divinity's reach or the black citadel immediately shatters what little immersion this game builds.

Yep, i gave up buying fashion from the second i had to open hero panel every single time i wanted to toggle them on.

A twigg covered in leaves dosn't really do a whole lot for me on the titillation front. I wounder why we never have people talking about how revealing some of the male gear is. Double standards I guess...

"The warriors look like steroid induced BDSM strippers?!?!?! WTF Anet! Where is my pole to dance around to make golds??"...

And for those who aren't aware, the geomancers 15k gear didn't have any elbows for awhile. I'm sure there will be things added later ontop of anything we might see at launch. But it would be nice to give my-self swiftness in my town clothes and not change back to armour.

No, ANet did a smart move there.

If they allowed town outfits to be worn while out adventuring, the world would be full of people dressed like crazy chefs or like the Matrix or with sillier clothes (that no doubt will be added aat a later date).

Immersion breaking for sure.

I would settle for vanity headgear that could be used in combat. Hoods, eye patches, hats... stuff like that.

You get one set of clothing items - they're not soulbound, so you can bank them and use them across other characters, but you only get one set.

Which makes them a lot more expensive than GW1 attires since you have to buy a new set for every colour palette.
My main character had like 5 sets of the same attire, one colour for each build ...

What's more disappointing is the fact that you can't wear town clothes in battle ... :huh:

They should at least give you the option to have it auto toggle as soon as you step into a city or town. At least then, it's not a chore to display them. I can agree with not using them in combat (although they really need better Medium Armor outside of long robes and pants), but having to manually switch to them every time is annoying.

Sylvari are generally far less body conscious than any of the other races except the Norn. They don't even have nipples, and the only reason female sylvari have a chest covering is to preserve the game's T rating (same with Charr females).

I really like the Human Femes clothes also, one of my fave's.

I really want more town clothes, and I'd love to see town clothing worked into the tailoring, jewelcrafting, and possibly leatherworking professions.

I don't think going to your Hero panel and clicking one button to toggle your whole town clothes set is such a big chore to be honest..

Agreed on the 'too many long robes for Medium Armour' claim.. even though I actually like most of them a lot. But I think more variety would be cool.

agree, also the pic you posted looks really strange due to the horizontal hanging flags, it almost looks like a bad photoshop merge of 2 different pictures but its just a strange optical effect.

No, ANet did a smart move there.

i agree with this somewhat, my most recent game that had "social" armor where you could display whatever you wanted only really needed this feature because pretty much everyone ended up wearing the same type of armor endgame (or even earlier if you had money, the armor scaled from lvl1-lvl300) so instead of displaying my armor i used one of the "classic" armors that had become obsolete years ago because i really liked the look and it was pretty iconic to my class. having the freedom to wear any clothing though led to troll outfits or Skimpy clothing most fit for the job


with guildwars being able to reskin your armor to whatever actual ARMOR you want, you shouldn't get bored of your look quite as easily as old games where you had to stick to 1 set.

Have you ever played Aion? Because with their skin system (You can re-skin a piece of armor to some ridicoulus piece of clothing) you had people running around in tuxedos, using giant fish swords, bunny coustoms, pumpkin heads, and a whole lot on non sense that made me feel i was playing a little kids game.

In the end...+1 to your post.

Considering some of the outfits Light and Medium Armour gets, I don't see why town clothing in combat would be so horrible.

And the Aviators, I mean you already have goggles and such, I don't see why a Pact Helicopter pilot wouldn't want a pair.
