  • As soon as I saw these I was like "hahahaha Music Guilds are going to love these, if not for the design but for the pure fact they are all music based"

    Yeah, while not my 'personal' taste (for my own characters), I'm hoping to see (and hear!) a lot of them in the world.

    In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

    They look nice and will look good for standing around and group photos, but music guilds will be sad they don't actually play anything. :P

    because people like to give feedback to a company thats creating content for them. I don't see the problem with the community voicing their opinions about artistic decisions because it lets them know what they do right and what they do wrong. This way they can hopefully continue the trend of creating content we find valuable.

  • Super love the idea, but I just checked out the staff and well, it's a bit heavy and bulky for a staff tbh. It's literally an entire harp.

    The worst thing is when you have desire or need for an item and it doesnt exist.
    Sometimes you even dont know you dreamed about having something - you discover it when someoen else makes it and shows to you.

    I think people thank creators for sharing the idea -> idea is free -> and/or for making what they wanted to have possible.

    yeah, love them...now when do they start with the heavy metal weapons?

  • the greatsword is an electric v style guitar.

  • it’s the first set which i thought of buying entire range

  • Tastes vary and I think this weapon set is one of the most interesting and coherently themed sets we have seen. My only critique is that the staff would have been less bulky if it were a bassoon.

    Creating art and offering it for sale is an anxiety steeped process, so thank you for taking the risk.

    all primes work and not tearing down has value
    ready purrlayer @ any parsed feels enhance the value of something that is already worth everything
    what other chordal approach but penultimate singing along with other quantum cuddle clocks

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the new instrument set. I'll share with the devs. :)

    Thank you to the devs from me as well! I love the new set, so much so that since I currently haven't collected enough BL scraps to make a ticket, I purchased two of the skins from the tp! My husband plays guitar, so I totally had to get the flying v greatsword for him. I bought the harp staff for my mesmer, because it's perfect for her backstory. As Kas said above, I didn't even know I wanted it until I saw it! <3

    I do love to see warhorns with there own sound. Thank you.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

  • Would been cool if they had animations also caster tools like play the bassom on staff with sound

  • I am disappointed that the great sword doesn't have a built in guitar emote. . But other than that they are great.

  • There is a flaw though, when you weapon-swap to the orchestral weapon, the draw sound didn't sound.

    They all sound when they leave the combat mode.

    Staff sounds harp, greatsword sounds the electric guitar etc.

    I love the Sword/Shield combo, though. The bow and the viola- such a nice touch!

    It's the person's job at the coffee shop to prepare my coffee in the morning, and yet every day I get a coffee from them I still say thank you.

    no no no no no you take that back! :p I love the staff for exactly that reason. It's between that and the sword/shield combo for my favorite implementations.

    Great. Now when can us musicians expect the audio team to fix the 'playable', currently-still-broken in-game instruments, and address the 'global note cooldown' issue on the instruments (where music notes do not each have their own cooldown on each octave) ? So much time spent on these creative Orchestral Instrument Skins could have also been spent fixing and improving the playable instruments we bought.

    Why is a fix taking so long? The playable instruments have been broken at least 5 other times, and a fix for them was implemented much quicker.

    The orchestral greatsword has only 4 strings, all relatively thick and wound so Kitty would dare argue it's a bass.

    Lol really? I think they look hideous. Though surely very creative (which the talented team could apply to better/more useful content).
