When can we expect legendary armor update?

since legendary armor was added, the PvE one has an upgraded look with animations and all. but the PvP and WvW sets were just different shaded versions of their base sets. when can we expect the final versions of these legendary sets to be on par with the PvE game mode?

  • NEVER. PvE armor is a unique with all those effects, etc. and only PvE would have it like Anet said. i thought WvW shouldnt have it too. Who really cares about some skins in BvB =)

    Far as I know, they are not planning to put out another set of skins when upgrading to legendary. It is more for the practical benefits like switching runes, stats etc not for skins.

    Somewhere chasing bags....

  • I hope we'll never get skins like that in WvW.

    It doesn't need animations to have quality, but using the same skin between upgraded and base is terrible

    Part of the negotiations that got us wvw and spvp legendary armor was that the raid armor kept its uniqueness.

    I have a full set of legendary wvw armor and I'm quite grateful to have it at all. They didn't have to do it and they did.

    it takes much longer to get a wvw or pvp set than a pve one due to strict timegates. It should have its own skins and such.

    Wvw players wanted the functionality of legendary armor, and not necessarily the looks. If you really wanted the looks you would have been raiding for it 1-2 years ago, it's surprising they even allowed the legendary function on wvw gear. They still need something unique to pull players to raid and the looks are that, wvw was never really the place to collect skins.

    Terrible or not, that was the plan. Offering the stat-swappable capability to PvP and WvW armor was a compromise over the original plan to restrict legendary rarity to raids.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    WvW skin already looks legendary. If you want that unique look, just remove glow and tentacle from ascended one. I prefer having new features/balance instead spending human resource on redoing the old stuff.
