So I didn't really know how to formulate the headline lol, but what I am trying to say is:

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE 3 GUILD WARS ARMOURS FOR MEDIUM, LIGHT AND HEAVY AND 3 COMMON PIECES TO BE IMPLEMENTED INTO GW2 WHICH WOULD IT BE?

Please no armour from the heroes of GW ^^ Please try to stick with 3 for each class and 3 common pieces.

Here's the choices you can choose from, and links for those of you who haven't played GW before and don't know where to find them:
(I based the armour upon armour rating, not on what we think a profession might be classified as)
Heavy Armour:
http://wiki.guildwar...i/Warrior_armor
http://wiki.guildwar...i/Paragon_armor

Medium Armour:
http://wiki.guildwar...ki/Ranger_armor
http://wiki.guildwar.../Assassin_armor
http://wiki.guildwar...i/Dervish_armor

Light Armour:
http://wiki.guildwar...wiki/Monk_armor
http://wiki.guildwar...Ritualist_armor
http://wiki.guildwar...mentalist_armor
http://wiki.guildwar...ki/Mesmer_armor

Common(Common are free class):
http://wiki.guildwar...ki/Common_armor

Do tell why you want these armours, or anything else you'd like to add :)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
My choices are:

Light:
Mesmer Obsidian, Ritualist obsidian and Elementalist obsidian armour.
Spoiler
Medium:
Ranger Elite Canthan, Dervish Obsidian, Assasin Elite Kurzick armour.

Spoiler
Heavy:
Warrior Elite Kurzick(never been a fan of the metal thong but like the rest), Paragon Obsidian, Warrior Obsidian.

Spoiler
Common:
Blindfold!!!! Dread Mask and CHAOS GLOVEEEES<3



I really want to see more mesmer armor, more elegant noble stuff, as well as more tribal/ritualist stuff. Since I find this lacking! Hooses, etc, I am a sucker for corsets and anything burlesque and really wanna see more of it.

pics sort of unrelated but not at the same time :3

Heavy: Elite Gladiator Warrior, Vabbian, Elite Kurzick Warrior

I can't see Paragon armors fitting in GW2 without the Paragon class.

Medium: Elite Druid Ranger, Elite Luxon Assassin, Elite Canthan Assassin.

We already have a lot of robes and coats for Medium armor.

Light: Normal Kurzick Monk, FoW Monk, Elite Enchanter Mesmer

I like the "open-ness" on normal kurz armor.

Common: Blindfold, Chaos Gauntlets, Slim Spectacles

Heavy
Warrior Kurzick, Warrior Sunspear (Koss and Goren have nice variants)
Medium
Ranger Norn, Dervish Asuran, Assassin Elite Kurzick without all the stupid blades everywhere
Light
Monk Elite Kurzick, Male Elementalist Krytan, Male Mesmer Luxon, Male Necromancer Kurzick

You can probably tell I like utilitarian, not-too-flashy armor that covers a lot of skin. Women could use more light armor options that aren't just skimpier versions of cool-looking male armor.

Will only comment on Heavy as i pretty much only played my warrior extensively through all campaigns. Other chars that i used to farm were just given max armor of whatever was cheap. Anways the ones i like:

Female Ancient Armor
Female Vabbian Armor
Female Elite Sunspear
Male Ancient
Male Elite Sunspear

Not sure why i like these, but out of all the available armors these were the ones i used most often.

It's not armor, but I really want to see the Kormir costume set to show up. Posted Image

Actually, on second thought, throw up all the costumes onto the TP. http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Costume Allow town clothes to be overlaid over armor if desired so we can wear costumes out and about.

It's already been posted multiple times, but seriously, the elite Kurzick warrior armor, for my guardian. That would be beyond tight.

Also, elite gladiator's for my warrior. And necromancer's obsidian for necromancer, of course!

Heavy: Only warrior armor really fits gw2 unless they bring back paragons. 15k or normal Kurzick, Gladiator, and normal Istani. Kurzick hands down here, but I like both of the others a lot as well.

Medium: Again only ranger armor really fits gw2, altough I guess some of the less "spiky" assassin armor could fit as well. 15k or normal Drakescale, Studded Leather and Canthan. Drakescale is probably my favorite, but I like both of the others quite a bit as well.

Light: Broke these down by class because there are so many.
Monk: 15k or normal Woven, normal Roughspun and of course Obsidian.
Ele: Flameforged and 15k Canthan.
Necro: Initiates
Mesmer: 15k or normal rogue and courtly + elite sunspear.

I absolutely adore all the armors I listed, and really hope they make their way into gw2.

Honestly, I dont know why anet hasnt started porting a lot of these over to gw2, it seems like a perfect gem store item and a virtually unlimited potential moneymaker that doesn't need designing.


*edit* I made a post on the official forums if you care to support.

Light Armor: Standard Necro Fanatic Armor
Heavy Armor: 15K Platemail
Medium Armor: Primeval Ranger / 15K Sunspear Ranger

The first two simply on the principle of being able to match all the available professions we have with ease. Fanatic armor for necromancers has always given me that 'battlemage' vibe, despite the awkward stature of the Necromancer from GW1. Its lack of flowing robes and the shoulders would probably be appreciated by many. 15K platemail in a GW2 iteration could easily match either the warrior or guardian.

Medium armor choices would be to stem away from the surplus of coats. I remember those two being pretty darn cool, though I never really played ranger much.

Light
Necromancer Norn, Elementalist Elite Luxon , Ritualist Elite Imperial
+ Any Other Necromancer Armor that involves a facemask.

(If they add another Necromancer armor, I really hope they don't mess it up like they did Profane... and please a Face Paint or Scar Pattern that can be dyed!)

Medium
Assassin Asuran, Ranger Elite Canthan, Assassin Elite Luxon

Heavy
Warrior Vabbian, Warrior Elite Kurzick, General Morgahn Armor
No seriously, I want General Morgahn's get up for my Guardian!

Since GW2 has way too many trenchcoats and ginormously long and huge skirts and buttcapes, I'd aim for maximizing the armor diversity by including armors that try to avoid those styles:

Light Armor: Toss-up between Necromancer Elite Scar Pattern, Monk Flowing, Elite Iceforged, Elite Stormforged, Mesmer Obsidian

Medium Armor: Toss-up between Elite Studded, Elite Druid, Imperial

Heavy Armor: Either Ascalon or Elite Gladiator

Trying to imagine scar pattern on races other than humans. Something like that on a Sylvari, for example, would be pretty cool if done right. Show off more of that potential glow, yeah?

I'm sure Charr players would also like it simply because it isn't another awkward 'cat-in-human-clothes' type deal.

3? You want me to choose... 3?!

Impossible. I loved every single GW1 armour (aside from the nooby beginner stuff that had the same style as mud :P).

But okay... if I have to choose 3:

Light:
http://wiki.guildwar...Deldrimor_armor (the monk version)

Medium:
http://wiki.guildwar...nger_Norn_armor

Heavy (I can't decide on just 1!):
http://wiki.guildwar...Platemail_armor (the elite version is too golden for my tastes)

http://wiki.guildwar...or_Asuran_armor

http://wiki.guildwar..._Monument_armor
