    I'd like more armor pieces that I can mix and match ^^'
    Sets are nice but those would make me look like any other person tbh ;d

    Yes SETS, you didn't use SETS in your calculations.
    Guild Wars 1 has 28 SETS

    you are saying that the ENTIRE warrior Prophecies armor sets should be just counted as 1 ?! great maths there

    there 10 warrior armor sets alone just in that Prophecies armor group

    I guess the real question is "what's a set?" Where is the "Platemail" version on a Mesmer?

    Edit: want to add the 4 extra Warrior/Necromancer armors as "sets" and the 3 extra for the other 4 professions, that would bring the total to 48? Happy now? Although that does favor more specific armor types over others. Arenanet stopped doing that with the expansions as they tried to release complete sets, excluding only armor sets available to the expansion professions exclusively, like Seitung (only Assassin/Ritualist) and Elonian (only Dervish/Paragon).

    This would also mean that separate weights in Guild Wars 2 would be a different set at times, or the same set at others. Mistforged Armor exists on all three weights, but Aurora armor is exclusive to Light, while Rubicon is exclusive to Medium and Armageddon exclusive to Heavy, even though I counted them as the "Temple armor" set, and so does the wiki. With the same logic as Platemail and Cabal being different "sets", Rubicon and Armageddon are different "sets" too. Not gonna do the GW2 math in that case, it's gonna be a very big number though.
