Now that we're able to wear capes, does anyone else want a casual looking rustic cape?

So many people want this!

I'd love to have a cool cloak-mask combo or atleast a rugged looking cape like the ithilien rangers wear in lord of the rings.


  • Yes, definitely! I would love to see that! I don't really like to make my toons shiny. I rather like them to be more "realistic" and for that I love ragged and rustic clothes. And a fitting cape would be gorgeous :)

    I'd love that. More normal long capes. Not filled with details.

  • Yes, some that aren't shiny ;)

    I kinda want an Inquest halfcape (to show off that official business status)
    something draped over one shoulder, so not full back-width

    alternatively, I want a cape fit for the cold weather we're in now.
    Be it a bear skin, a cloth with woolen lining, or something made of raven feather's to match the raven's cowl.

    (anyone knows how to make it an actual image on the forum?)

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    Yeah would be cool although that's a cloak not a cape.

    The big problem with it though is it will be much harder to put in the game than capes.

    The easiest way they could do it would be to just make it an outfit, but most won't be happy with that as they'll want to mix match.
    It could work as part of a Head, Shoulders and Backpack combo set but there will still be a ton of clipping issues involved with various armour sets/parts.

    Unlike current capes though it would need to be wider at the top than the bottom so without the matching shoulders or a suitable substitute the cape alone would look floaty and stupid.. and some would probably use it because of that.
    Some players may take issue with that in a similar way to how they really dislike certain effects or those characters who's main goal appears to be becoming the shiniest thing alive.

    I am wondering if a compromise can be made and if it's possible for Anet to develop equipment specific outfits.
    Atm all the we have is full body outfits.
    But would it be possible to have outfits that only replace/hide 2-3 pieces of armour and leave your currently equipped armour visible.
    If Anet can pull that off then adding a variety of cool Cloak outfits to the game would be very possible.
