Medium Raven Ceremonial Chestpiece intended?

I've been wondering if the medium chest including the leggings and outer pants/skirt-part was intended? It seems rather weird to me for the pants to be included in the chest texture (to the point where you can take off the pants w/o seeing a difference). Especially with all other skins being identical for all weights, it feels weird to me. I don't mind the look of the pants, but having a chest piece that includes a pants skin is just kinda meh :/

    It is likely an oversight since light/medium have the robe part as the leg-piece

    I think it's just the typical medium parting (leggings + trench-coat), to make it usable with other medium skins. Just imagine how fugly (and clipping) it'd be if you wore an actual trench-coat over a skirt...

    If it's intended I'd like just the pants to unlock for other two armor types.

    Many sets do this, including some Asuran cultural armors, the Flame Legion dungeon armor ,etc.

  • I wasn't surprised that the chest includes the skirt part (since medium armour chest pieces are typically long), but I thought it was odd that it also includes the leggings underneath - it seems like the skirt wouldn't clip with a different set of medium leggings/trousers. Still, it does seem reasonable to me to assume it was intentional.

    You can sort of do this already with charr Trapper armour, since the leg part includes the armoured skirt. And yes, it looks terrible with a trench coat over them!

    It made me sad.

    Wow, I'm not sure I wanted to know this (I didn't as I'm a hopeless twig-brain and thus haven't used charr cultural armor so far). Thanks for the warning :D

  • That'd be awful if this is intentional. Does any developer know if the leggings/skirt are supposed to be baked into the top for the medium armor class?

    I can't even find the gown. The box only offered gloves, leggings, boots and I could only select one. The NPC doesn't have another box for sale on reset. Am I missing something?

    The Heavy works fine. Its baffling how this happened. The leggings icons for medium and light misrepresent what they actually look like if this was intended. It doesn't seem it was though.

  • I think it was a mistake. The medium armor should include the front and back panels on the leggings for medium armor, just like the light and heavy versions. The word 'Gown' in the name implies that the panels should be there. A gown and pants are not the same thing!
    If this was intended by the devs, then I am more than a little upset that only medium armor needs the high RNG chest (Garb) piece from strike missions, in order to have the same leggings as other classes get with in-game currency.

    As far as I know the chestpiece / garb only drops from the new Strike Mission. I've seen it drop once in my group. It drops directly from the boss, not the 3 mastery chests.

    Medium armor is typically designed with the top hanging over the bottom.

    The medium raven bottom, however, lends to a great Tracer inspired outfit which I got right away.

    They better not change that.

    Oh dear. That kills a lot of my interest in the chest. I don't like the leg part at all but was looking forward to using the crop top (if ever I got it) on a number of alts. If I'm forced to have the legs with it, well, meh.

    This issue is especially awful on female charr. What you end up with, if using raven pants, is a cat wearing lingerie

    It's a relatively rare drop from something(seen various claims) ... https://www.gw2tp.com/item/92790-reliquary-of-the-raven-ceremonial-garb

    Same goes for the hat and I guess the shoulders are in the gemstore?

  • Weindrasi.3805Weindrasi.3805 Member ✭✭✭

    The fact that this drop is so rare--essentially a prestige item comparable to a legendary--should be a reason to FIX this, even if it is "working as intended". It leaves a bad taste in my mouth to have it be a unique armor piece for light and heavy wearers, and essentially an Outfit on medium wearers.
    Maybe this has been done before on SOME medium armor pieces, but it is absolutely not--nor has it ever been--universal.
