    Where do we stuff the dollar bills?

    You stick your hand into the void and release. It's symbolic of what you have to go through to get it. Throwing your money away (or time if you key farm for it).

    To the conservative folks out there, you can only see space and a metal diaper. What's revealing about that? Lol

    Looks more like a cod piece then a diaper seems like you havent seen one.

    I like it.

    Yes, the headpiece is dumb, wish the bikini bra wasn't on Asura female & that Charr female tail was better. And I feel like instead of fixing the zodiac armor or giving us more revealing outfits for men, we get this. But not complaining! It's very nice.

    For those who really wanted it but failed to get it, I am very sorry for your loss. :(

    Its a rather ugly outfit imo.

    Then dont buy it. Its a very simple and straight forward answer / solution here.

    Well not really, if it was on the gemstore I would not care, but if I am going to be spending keys on chests and I end up with this skin I have spent money on something I find ugly

  • This could be really great outfit that GW2 really needs if not 2 things:
    1. Celestial infusion effect on whole body (that is much higher resolution than celestial infusion itself so if someone want to pair them resoults will look just bad). Without it outfit would look much better.
    2. It's locked behind lootbox black lion chest. Let us just buy it please...

    I had a small stash of normal and golden keys and figured I'd try get that new Raptor to boost my account value lol
    Ended up getting 2 of those Soaring weapons (torch and focus) which are not exactly the best looking tbh.. and the new outfit which i'm also not that keen on.

    Overall feels like a wasted them tbh but that's always the risk you take when you gamble on RNG :)

    As for the outfit itself.. it's extremely skimpy for my tastes.. looks like something that would be more at home in some extremely wierd adult movie set in space or something XD
    I got a few laughs out of it because of that so not salty about getting it instead of the thing I wanted.
    But it's not something i'll use very often.. too skimpy for me lol

    Oh my that is (to me) hideous.

    Oh well fair play to those who like it, but I still wish GW focused less on the flash and neon

    A million times this. I remember when this game first came out how i fell in love with more realistic looks of dungeon sets and gear in general. Nowadays everything looks like a physical manifestation of a rave party.

    This is a very good way of putting it...

    As for how I think of the skin, it's definitely not my taste, though I appreciate that the male version is just as skimpy as the female version of the outfit. I think the thing that leaves a bad taste in my mouth about all of this is how it is locked behind the BLC, and can't be purchased outright, like the raptor mount skin that was just released.

    If you disable the helm, is your head still part of the "Starborn Affect"? I like the "Starborn Affect", but I can't get over the horrendous helm. I would only be interested in this skin if I can maintain the "Starborn Affect" while removing the gigantic tiara/helm.

    If disabling the helm loses the "Starborn Affect", I'm not interested. The helm on an Asura is to much...

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry. Like any outfit, when you disable the helm you get your normal head with no headgear. No special effect.

    No reason to be sorry. That was very helpful.

    Very short on time and money, atm but got it this morning: I blew the 17 keys I had saved up, plus the 3 golden keys I have hoarded for months., hoping for the FoxCharr-a-roo raptor skin. I got a Glyph of Industry, the outfit, the dragon firework backpack set, and a couple of weapon skins, so after selling the glyph and skins I have enough gold to trade for maybe half the raptor skin in gems...ah, well, a few more weeks of key farming before it goes away.

    Have not had time to fiddle with this outfit yet--I will try it on tonight.

    Look in the outfits section of your bank, not your personal wardrobe in the hero menu.

  • Psientist.6437Psientist.6437 Member ✭✭✭

    Why bother with the armor? A smooth crotch would look less suggestive and draw less attention. The overall effect would be more compelling with only a helmet.

    I was hoping, like the new mount, it would be available in the gemstore too.

    I had enough statuettes (50) to buy a golden BL key - got the outfit on the first try.

    I got lucky, but I feel bad for people that had so much bad luck.

    This is my signature. It is not very exciting.

    Had to spend 10 keys to get the outfit - rather lucky, I guess?

    The helmet is an utter abomination, but the outfit itself is rather pretty - at least in my opinion.

    It actually surprises me though that the outfit is as skimpy as it is. That's quite rare for ANets standard since more revealing outfits usually look rather silly in the genital-regions. Just look at outfits like the Elonian Elementalist.

    I saw a Char wearing itl looked nice as one of those crazy cat looks he had the helm disabled. However it being too...skimpy on other races. Couldn't they make it a gem store infusion? Cause the armor is just...maybe this is the anets sneaky answer to people who wanna run around naked with swim suits.

    I am not using that on any of my chars or getting it even if it was an "ingame" item..if it was a dyable infusion however...that might be interesting?

    It's another time limited + completely random cosmetic item that looks better than anything that could be earned by playing the game normally, something which is supposed to be bought by spending absurd amounts of RL cash and gamble, in a game where the main progression is cosmetics, even further destrying the reward strcuture of the game.

    So once more an utter failure and another step in the wrong direction. Why don't they put rewards like this in the game to grind? Why don't they come up with let's say a PvE solo arena or group arena or endless horde defense missions and have this as a reward with the newest update?

    That would bring ppl to actually play the game, rather than either not caring at all about the costume, since it is so absurdly expensive/RNG/Limited/RL Cash or buying it instantly, wasting tons of RL money on it, then feeling bad for spending so much money on an ingame item and everyone knowing that you did when you wear that costume and also still not having any more content to do in the game, since all that got added was an ingame item that without any lore, worldbuilding, explanation, makes you look like a fallen god or whatever just via an ingame popup!

    Imo another terrible addition to the game.

    Thats some good RNG, i rolled 75 keys and didnt get squat, looks like a $100 skin for me if i want it, gg anet.

    Don't say what you mean, it will get you in trouble.

    50 keys, no outfit.

    kitten, I feel bamboozled. (it is my fault for falling for it lol)

    It is a good outfit, but I won't be spending anymore real world money on keys or RNG items.

    If it isn't in the shop to purchase outright, my wallet is staying closed.

    Do you have eternity to match with your star outfit and star mounts, though?

    To make this outfit look fiery instead of starry, I dyed it perseverance, pumpkin orange, and midnight fire. Looks pretty sweet combined with fire-themed weapons, mounts, and mini pet!

    No, I want outfits that the NPCs get the joy of having but we don't get. How about getting back to racial outfits. Human, sylvari, charr, asura, norn inspired? Probably not human since they had a whole expansion worthy of pretty nice outfits that can go with the other races.

    Even BDOs outfits fit more with their world and they had things like kitten Victoria secret swimsuits. Like it just make fashion wars a whole big yikes for people that actually want to fashion wars properly.

    I understand, and sympathise, excellent points. It was just the 'christ' exclamation that brought out my (silly) comment.

    I sort of wonder why they didn’t make this a swimsuit, you know, for the summer event and all... and a lot of people request that. If they only removed the starry effect it would essentially be a swimsuit. But as it is it’s still pretty unique and maybe I’ll use it a bit

    All they have to do is flip the Victoria Secret swimsuit mode on here and bank. They can even make it like DoA beach volleyball and let people collect sets of pixelated "armor" and rng gate it too. If people are dropping serious cash for this, sky's the limit.

    Nope. But only one char from those three can use gs anyway.

  • Too bad you can't sell these. I got one for each of my alts and it doesn't look good on little noodle rat characters. I think it would look better without the diaper armor and left only as a celestial silhouette.

    I agree those extra parts make the outfit really ugly but without them it wouldn't be an "attempt" at a swimsuit anymore. Which could hurt sales.

    it seems like they love the RNG so much that they even add outfits and armor parts in it lately, more money for them i guess.....

    This isn't a new thing. The black lion chests have had 1-2 account bound items which are not available anywhere else for years now (since about 2016 I think). This isn't even the first time it's been an outfit.

    I don't like it either, I don't buy cash shop RNG items in any game and it's frustrating when there isn't another way to get those items. But I'm confused by the number of comments I've seen today acting like this outfit being exclusive to the chests is something new and unexpected, or somehow indicative of a change in direction for Anet. At this point it's standard practice.

    they have always sold them, only recently they put them exclusively in chests.

    just a PS, why did they made the armor pieces 60 statues while i distinctly remember them being 30 statues?

    The Balthazaar outfit was BL Chest exclusive and is not recent at all.
    But no one lost their minds then.

    The one off armor pieces were usually 60 each.
    The old armor sets were (and are currently) 30.

    They should make more racial outfits (nah not false racial ones like inquest exo suit which only fit human...that exhibitionist torso is ugly showing your belly...), they recently released some racial chairs so they can continue in that direction. :)

    I'm not fan of that one or zodiac. I prefer the ones giving the envy to buy them who look like civilian clothes (noble outfit/hexed outfit/wintersday even jungle explorer that really make you a military).

    The previous one "mist stranger" was cool apart the fog arm but effects was always too present for me. I would have bought mad scientist if my asura wasn't looking like a fly. Currently using outlaw with white dye is better to have a lab coat.

    Dungeon themed outfits have also great potential instead of modifying dungeon.
