    You look like you are wearing a Critter on your head with banana leaves stapled to your shoulders and feet.

    There is a reason the old paths are behind us; the only way we can see what's in front of us is to look forward and remember why the old paths were left behind.

    I thought "yay- tribal stuff" only to be disapointed. It removes all shape, and looks like a crossbreed between a pyjamas and a bush.... 😥

  • Nooooo....you look like a powerful, barefooted, Norn shaman who is going to command a flock of Ravens to attack Jormag.

    Actually though, at times I think he looks like the old comic version of Batman...mostly he looks like an angry Raven Shaman who is going to beat up Jormag with his squad. I have the outfit dyed with Abyssal Sea to get this effect.

    I'm glad you love it, I really am. For me, I'd be expecting this eyesore to attract a flock of seagulls. Who would promptly target it with airborn splotches. As they do.

    You made me laugh with delight at the image your words painted. Thank you :)

    This outfit looks like a Muppet Troll doll going to a rave.

    ...It made me laugh. A LOT. It's hard to really hate something that makes you laugh. It might fall into the "so bad, it's good" category. I'm actually tempted to buy it, now that my utter disbelief has past. I don't know what the designers were smoking, but it's got good vibes man.

    To critique it:

    • It's disappointing that the ladies get an elaborately cut-out body suit, with extra-special attention given to the behind, while the guys get a ripped sack cloth held up with rope (and noticeably less attention given to the same area).
    • Having the shiny metal of the chest piece use the same dye channel as the inked body tattoo was a huge mistake imo. Because if you want the metal to look like metal, gold or silver, you end up with yellow or grey tats. If you dye for the tats, you end up with weird looking metal. I'd have linked the skin tats to the earring detail/eyes color channel.

    I have not tried it on a female, or on any other race other than male Norn, but my angry "Commander of Ravens" is barefooted.

    Or a Wookie. It's not pretty. People buy this? I hope the next round of BL stuff will be more Utility related again. :)

    Lisa gleefully responds...I bought it yesterday as soon as I saw it. Loving it.

    People like different things..on a serious note, my mom is suffering from Dementia and I am her caretaker. I need something silly in my life...

    Well, I can understand it. I have bought a raptorskin myself that lots of people would consider over the top(Dreadnought). Good luck with your mom, that must be tough.

    Outfits are basically a one-piece suit, plus the head piece. This is why you can toggle the head piece visible/invisible (on/off).

    yes, i know this, but why? i want to why specifically we cant have a toggle for shoulders. simply because they dont want us to be able to toggle shoulders and gloves? it simply doesnt make sense. if they can give us a headpiece toggle, they can give us a shoulder/glove toggle. nobody is asking to have the ability to use armor in its place, simply toggle them off. like we can headpieces

    Because it is more expensive and time consuming for them to create armor skins rather than outfits

    https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/969914/#Comment_969914

    "Armor sets are by far the most expensive reward we can make. A full set includes heavy, medium, light, times five races, times two sexes, so it's like developing 30 sets. It takes nine months to develop. (That's for a normal armor set -- legendary is much longer.) It's not something we can do for Living World episodes. Individual pieces are good rewards for Living World episodes; full sets are more something for expansion packs." - Mike O'Brien

    not asking for them to be turned into armor sets! giving a toggle option cant be that hard, they did it for headpieces! we dont want outfits turned into armor sets. giving a toggle for shoulders and gloves doesnt have anything to with weight classes, nothing at all

    I'm sorry that you're not understanding how outfits are made. They cannot make the change that you are suggesting.

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.

    The business model is entirely different. SE makes enough money from the subscriptions that they can but all the visual progression ingame.
    Many of the Cash shop items used to be available ingame, too.

    I love this outfit. It suits my female Norn Mesmer perfect. She is a shaman of the trickster Raven spirit.

    But the dye channels don’t function as depicted in the preview screen. I’ve submitted a ticket.

    I dislike oversized clothing and they made the shoulders, shoes, everything even larger on males.
    Only positive thing about it is no shirt which is rare for boiz.
    As someone who likes tribal themed stuff the most, I don't like this outfit.

    oh dear god, dont be sry lmao i think i DO understand how outfits are made. and the diff between outfits and armor.

    My first thought was 70's rock star. But a friend said it was great if you want to cosplay from the Cats musical ... and I have to agree.

    I can see a few, limited applications of this outfit for my alts, with the right dyes. Not enough to make me spring for it. I don't mind, I do like the vast majority of the outfits, shoulders and all -- though hiding shoulders would be lovely if it were technically feasible, and mix/matching in armor helms would be sweet. Hopefully the next offering will engage my interest.

  • Tanith.5264Tanith.5264 Member ✭✭✭

    I was going to post a comment, but I pulled up the TP to see this outfit everyone's talking about and now have the most curious urge to watch the battle between Gandalf and the Balrog in Ralph Bakshi's 1978 animated version of The Lord of the Rings.

    Excuse me. :)
