    Oh what a surprise, they're selling capes on the BLC store.

    That doesn't mean we will never see them ingame normally. Also guild cape is available ingame. Still a very nice addition regardless.

    Bite me.

    Still not something I'm interested in, but I'm glad they found a way to do it for those who do want it.

    From what I heard, the guild cape is like a bib.

    This is perfect we don't have to gamble with black lion chests, we can buy directly! :D I bought mine and has 4 dye channels! It looks amazing!

    ...I am too shocked to properly formulate speech. The world is topsy-turvy. WHAT IS HAPPENING!

    If it's a backpiece, how do we dye it? Is it considered shoulders?

  • No, it's not shoulders, or at least not in the preview, because I've still got my shoulder armor on.

    Some decent qol features this week. The ele ooc weapon swap is one I’ve asked for for years.

    I never expected it to happen but I'm really excited about weapon swap on ele and engi (because apparently the one thing I wanted for those two professions is more buttons).

    The fact that it's come now, not long after equipment templates, makes me wonder if I wasn't being as creative as I thought by using the second equipment template to put my ele and engi's second weapon set into. Maybe a lot of people did exactly the same thing and Anet realised it's a feature a lot of people want?

    It is likely just a natural thing to add with template keybinds already doing the exact same thing. There was no reason not to do it and it saves a template space

    Wow love it! Doesn't fit my characters but instantly adds more depth to any armor or outfit system 😍

  • Blocki.4931Blocki.4931 Member ✭✭✭✭

    A friend sent me some screenshots of her character with it and I gotta say it looks really cool. Digging this, especially since this allows me to move away from the bulky backpieces I've been using lol

    I don't think they retroactively went and changed all backpieces, but I'd expect this to be a feature going forward.

  • Dahkeus.8243Dahkeus.8243 Member ✭✭✭

    I'm really happy to see these added. I know there was a lot of concern about the ability to make a cape with perfect physics that fit all character/armor shapes perfectly (and some of that grievance has already been shown by some people in the community), but I'm still glad that ANet went forward with adding these despite those hinderances.

    Adding these in as something purchasable with guild commendations was also a classy move. Big props for that.

    I really like the guild-cape, it is only 10 gold and 10 Guild Commendations (obtainable from Guild Missions). The capes can be dyed (border and center) and you can literally pick from plenty of cool symbols & backgrounds which can be dyed separately. You can just purchase a cape from the vendor and make an own guild for 1 gold at any Guild Registrar or just pick an empty guild-slot in your guild-panel (g) and create a new one. Emblem is instantly unlocked. If you are however part of a guild with 100 % representation requirement, you are bound to their symbol.

    They shared a trailer of the BLC cape on YouTube and people called them out on the obvious quality difference between the paid and earnable cape. My page refreshed for whatever reason and suddenly "Comments are turned off" lmao.

    I never was too upset about the lack of them but now, having them in game, I want them! Also a good move for them to make certain that there’s one acquirable outside the gemstore immediately at the launch of this feature to reassure players

    Sure, sure. What about PvP or WvW? Have they received any new content recently? I'm not trying to kitten on anyone's cape-party. I just expressed my personal opinion.

    Surprisingly i dont like all my characters being shiny and sparkly so i might have use for that. There is Sytle in junk sometimes if you dont always want to look like a glowing sparkler.

    I really hope capes are added to various content like raids, strikes, WvW, PvP etc they're a great cosmetic reward item to show off.

  • Oh superb.... it took them 7 years and now they've decided to stick it in that kitten gemmie-store for 500g... a single cape style. Seriously? And there are people who are praising them for it. And of course the Guild cape is ugly af. No way to obtain unique capes through game-play, crafting, etc.

    But there’s the same hope that Anet will make them obtainable outside the gem store just like mount skins and glider skins.

  • 7 years waiting for something that turned out to be a backpiece skin that's sold on gemstore .. idk, i feel sad, angry and happy at the same time.

    Something from gw1 that is yet again... a gemstore feature... sigh
    Wasn't the build template fiasco enough already? I mean, I'm happy that we got at least a pumpkin head that we get for ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAME like in gw1 but still...
    Yes, I know there's one you can buy from a guild trader but you can't dye it and it looks afwul in comparison. Anyways, I think I'll stick to my shiny legendary backpack as everyone only cares for showing of legendaries these days and judges people based on skin choices and calls people who go for realistic things noobs...
    What's next? Backpack dying feature or elite specs behind a paywall? kitten

    It's sad, I wish there were actually things like that one can obtain by actually playing the game instead of throwing money at it. And i'm talking about stuff outside of raids since not everyone actively speedclears them every week. You know? Some people want to actually ENJOY content rather than rush through it and being put under pressure. Some of us don't have reaction times of a 16 year old. Some of us have disabilities. There's so much neat stuff (and even lore) locked behind raids that the only way of obtaining something nice these days is the gemstore. Considering how rewards were in the times before HoT the last content updates over the years are disappointing. People overall were a bit nicer before HoT too despite the dungeon elitism stuff... I miss these days.

    That should come as no surprise to anyone. At least they did include a way to acquire one in game, but just like the original 'chair', don't expect parity with Gem store offerings.
