Especially since Anet has announced the next expac to be in development, people are theorycrafting about the thematics, gameplay niches, mechanics, and other stuff of the next elite specs.
Now I thought that I want to ask the people about another aspect of elite specs: their unique skins!
Every elite spec releases with 1 armor skin and 2 weapon skins (a base version and an upgraded version) and I think it would be interesting to see what people would like to see here. This is fashion wars in the end, so we need these skins to fill missing niches to customize!
Keep in mind: armor skins to this point all have been one of three different types.
Helmets, shoulders, or gloves
Every class got 2 of these so far, so I guess the third will most likely be the one left.
This means the following:
Warrior gets gloves.
Guardian gets shoulders.
Revenant gets gloves.
Ranger gets a helmet.
Thief gets gloves.
Engineer gets gloves.
Elementalist gets a helmet.
Mesmer gets gloves.
Necromancer gets gloves.
My personal wish for the engineer
I want the new engineer elite spec to have a chemical theme, so they should get fitting skins for this. I imagine either a mace with the head being made out of glass filled with a green liquid or an axe with acid dripping from it and some tubes.
The glove skins should also have tubes sticking out with a green liquid. With skins like the gasmask, the antitoxin injector and such, I need gloves to make my dream of becoming a mad chemist come true!
What are you guys hoping for?
