I said it.
The gem skins are ugly too.
(this is an opinion, obv, for those who want to defend Warclaw.)

  • Yeah the horn thing is definitely fugly. The whole pack deal was garbage. I mean really, dont sell skins that are basically the same and have slight artwork on the armor. Bad decision on anets part.

    My sentence doesn't make sense? Well, I probably forgot to write half of it before posting.

    I don't find it particularly ugly, though I weren't a huge fan of most skins recently added, two of them are basically just the base skin with red eyes and slightly different dye patterns. Definitely not a fan of the fact they were only sold in a bundle either, instead of the bundle being a "deal" offering where you got the skins for x Gems cheaper than if you were to buy the skins individually, with each of them being offered up for purchase as well. ArenaNet's Gem Store team sure does like to scratch me the wrong way and build up brand resentment which closes my wallet further and further for future additions added to the store. But I guess they only like to look at things short-term. That's obviously the smart way to do business. Not to create brand loyalty with good offers and options. Create resentment instead, make people less and less interested in spending money. It's a smart business decision that all companies should follow suit on.

    yep, the only style available should be human female meta with a tiny body and skimpy + glowy armor.
    or, perhaps not...

    I LOVE Fashion stuff on this game. Anets Devs are crazy good for that. But you know, as all artists they cant release perfect stuff all the time. I mean, look all those fabulous infusions we had... and then toy infusion arrived..
    Look all those cute mounts we had since PoF! And all those crazy mounts skins!
    I agree this is not a cute mount, for me the basic mount is more for Charrs.
    But :
    - 1 ugly basic skin on 7 mounts its still a good succes rate
    - Maybe next gem skins will be much better than actual ones.

    Even if it take time, i'm pretty sure they will release (at the very least) one Beautiful skin on this mount too.

  • Ugly things can still be beautiful on the inside.

    I wish they'd nerf me.

    Considering the height of GW2 fashion is a neon pink/purple chrono with as many auras as you can fit on her, I'll just take this critique with a grain of salt.

    Agree, and not to forget that it remains a matter of personal taste: Someone can find something ugly whereas someone else will find the exact same thing looking good. Fortunately I would say! Many of my friends in game do love the warclaw's appearance. Personally, I do love the kitty skin for it. <3

    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...

    For a battle kitty I tkink it's a cool skin, however I would have removed the helmet / tail armors or at least making them more feline, embracing the shape of the spirit within it. The head feel unnatural and confusing.

    I don't mind the looks much. But I think the animation is somewhat lacking compared to the other mounts we have. I saw it in PvE lately and it just looks kind of out of place? It reminds me of mounts from other MMOs, somehow. In comparison, the raptors and bunnies seem to have more detailed and well done animations that make them fit into the world and environment better.

  • As a battle mount, I think the design fits for what it's intended to do. What's that old saying? "form follows function"

    It's not ugly. It's utilitarian.

    Not liking the first batch of skins though.

    As it should.

    You're not suppose to date the mount.

    I work with some ugly people too but they're invaluable and awesome.

    One of my superiors showed me a picture of an ugly wild boar he took out a couple years back, he said it was delicious.

    Why would I want to date the mount? Why did you just sexualize a mount?

    I think that's the idea, actually. I'm pretty sure the helmet is supposed to be part armor, part fright mask.

    You have to also consider the dye channels. I thought the skins were a decent mix of styles.

    The mount isn't ugly, it's just wearing it's warface.

    I mean, sounds to me like if the OP had their way it would look like this:

    So I am a little curious. What exactly is the point of this thread? It doesn't really present any discussion. It doesn't have any suggested changes to "fix" what you dislike. At this point it looks like it was specifically intended to annoy and bait people into replying which is a form of trolling.

    The design copies ancient Asian armor and mask designs. I don't see how that could be considered "ugly." It's a definite style.

    It's not an animal, either, but a spirit trapped in a metal construct, so "cute looks" would be a bit misplaced here. ;)
