armor is hard to make in full sets, why not make single parts?

Pretty self explanatory. we've been told time and again that armor is hard to make because it has to be done in full sets for all races and genders. but what if we got single pieces of armor that are not part of any set? each new piece would be much less work than a full set of course, and hopefully not too different between male and female either.
Wouldn't that be much less work?

    Hardly anyone will get those. People like to mix and match.

    The chest/leggings may be part of what makes making full sets of armor so difficult. So making an individual pants armor chest piece would be almost as difficult as making a full set.

    A while ago, I was wondering if they would be able to do more reskins of pieces that are already "fitted" (I'm not sure what word you would use for that)

    That way they wouldn't have to worry about clipping, and could recycle an old piece into a new piece.

    Example: It would be pretty cool if it were possible to reskin t3 armor chest/legs to match the foefire shoulder/boot/glove set.

    reskins would be a nice option too, just change the textures. but I still want more options than trenchcoats for medium male armor. (specially human) so just reskins wouldnt cut it.
    even having an emperor chest to allow to go shirtless would be enough for me... :/

  • I believe the components are roughly the same in cost, time, and materials.
    Unless you have different rarities in chest, arm, leg, helmet, and foot, the main difference for each piece is what attribute you want.

  • They have nice armor types in GW1 that could be adjusted easy enough. I love the imperial style armor sets for my assassin would look great on my thief or ranger. Maybe make some new armor cultural to a race of course have the original sets but make more and sell them in the gemstore. This way sets do not have to be made so all races can use them only the race they are made for. Like once a month add a new armor set for lets say Charr, which is only for that race, and make all three weights. The next month or longer if needed make sets for asuran. The biggest problem with armor is making it for all races and it be the same design basically. Well its not there are differences of course so take a step back and design for each race instead.

    The reason for that is they are harder to make so if you would go for single pieces be prepared to see more boots,helm, shoulder and gloves.

    They make those too ... check out LS rewards since forever.

    If you think balancing is only driven by performance and justified by comparisons to other classes then prepare to be educated:
