Professional Exclusive Armor Sets?
Posted 19 December 2012 - 07:04 AM
Like title, new armor sets that are exclusive to each professions. While mix match is fun, and there are certain sets that best suited the looks of certain professions, what about having sets that you can wear only if you are of that profession.
This can help define your character better, as it is more tailor for that profession's theme and look (so a Elementalist could have different elements floating around him/her as part of the armor, etc). A basic set can also be use in PvP (so to give a better at-glance visual que of your teamate and your enemy)

I'd love to have profession specific gear.

Maybe it could cost karma, or some other form of tokens, so you know people really worked for it.
Huge gold cost could work too, but then it would lose some prestige because of cash > gems > gold.

Could also go by a tier skin. So the model would be the same, but as go up in tiers, the armor texture/skin become better and more fancy (with some added floaties too)
So tier 1, the very basic, would be free for all (and default in PvP). Tier 2 cost some gold (and lost more when buying the lv 80 version). Tier 3 need to be crafted (with few rare materials, and recepies are harder to come by, as well as profession exusive too). And Tier 4, gem store.

If I want to dress my guardian like a warrior, I don't see any reason to restrict those options.

It kills me to see a ranger, assassin, and an engineer all looking the same. Yeah, the sin gets a stupid hood, it they want to go all AC, and an engineer gets a patch; but that isn't the same.
GW handled it much better, in that respect. It really becomes stark with such classes as the Necro. As it is, the only way you can really LOOK like a necro is by choosing the face paint, going pale, and dying your armor. Not the same thing.
As for letting others wear the armor of a profession, if it comes out...no. It would be the same as cultural armor. If you wouldn't be wearing a salad as an Asura, you won't be wearing Ranger armor as a sin.
