    Ritualist is my fav

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

  • I have a lot of wardrobe unlocked. Discounting the stuff that I never much liked, there are still too many things for me to make use of more than a fraction. Outfits don't suffer any better or worse than anything else.

    The ones I've bought fill a particular niche, so I make use of that. I particularly like the Ancestral Outfit for Lunar New Year, the Mad Scientist Outfit works for a lot of toons that are hard to costume, and so on.

    I don't necessarily go buying a new outfit when I get tired of an old one, but I do like to change my look from time to time. There are some outfits I haven't used in a long time, though, so I guess that puts me firmly in the "guilty" camp.

    i buy them for future or concept use, they rarely get unused. (and the ones who are unused are free ones, shows how ugly they are)

    I went with Other. I own and use many outfits. Some of my 45 toons have them on "permanently" and I use them on the toon I am actively playing to switch things up when I get bored of a look. I did not get the Rit outfit. It's fine, and something I would use, I just don't need another right now.

    In contrast, how many armor sets never see any use? A great many methinks.

    I use them mostly on low level characters where I don't have an armor set yet that I will keep.

    i always use outfits i buy and rarely not use

    This is one reason I rarely buy outfits when they first come out - I want to be certain I am going to use it enough to justify buying it and it often takes me a while to decide. It's also why I have relatively few of them (13 in total, 7 purchased, 6 free/unlocked in-game or bundled with PoF), any new ones need to fill a 'gap' in my characters wardrobes rather than just being a variation on something I've already got.

    Then sometimes I run into the problem that once I've decided to get an outfit I have to wait ages for it to come back, most recently that happened with the Jungle Explorer outfit.

    So, if you get an outfit and only use it for a short time and then rarely ever again, how can one complain that outfits lend to seeing clones of people wearing the same outfit?

    If it's not new, you could be the only person on a map wearing a particular outfit.

  • other

    I think its fine. You buy an outfit and use it for a time. After some time you stop using it for some new hotness thats normal and fine. You still own the item its not like you have lost anything. More often than not you may end up returning to it for some event or a new character.

    I generally prefer armor skins over outfits but have bought three. My favorite is the wedding outfit because I love the female sylvari gown. I also use the exemplar outfit from time to time because it is elegant and not over-the-top like so many of the other outfits and armors. Finally, I got Braham’s wolfblood outfit as part of a package deal and use it for my norn guardian.

    i collect outfits dont care whter i use it or not

    If I see an outfit that I think is well designed (not overly excessive or gaudy, not over-designed or obstructive) and it looks good on Charr I buy it. On my Main I swap between a custom armour set and the Wedding Attire outfit. The custom armour set being his combat outfit, the Wedding Attire being his civvies.

    If I see something I like, I buy it as a vote with my wallet, and just in case I ever find a use for it in future. For example with the War Eternal Supply Drop I just unlocked the Chef outfit, because I can see myself using that in future, probably while messing around in one of the major cities with other players, or during a festival.

    I've been thinking about getting the chef outfit for a while, as an alternative to the common clothing outfit. I love that it changes based on the race of the character wearing it (I think it's only common clothing, the wedding outfit and the chef outfit which do that) and I think it would make a nice alternative to the other two.

    I normally to use outfits as an alternative to armour - something for my characters to wear when they're in town or otherwise in non-combat situations. (Something I've been doing basically as long as it's been an option in RPGs, first one I remember making a point of it was Morrowind where I always carried a set of plain clothes to swap to in towns.) So I really like the ones which don't look like armour and which look like something an NPC might wear (although it doesn't have to be racial clothing).

    The one exception is the arctic explorer outfit, which I bought because (stupid as it sounds) a character running around in snow wearing a sleeveless top or other inappropriate clothing can make me actually feel cold, so I like having that to swap to.

    Not silly at all. I totally get that. If I plan to be romping around in The Shiverpeaks or any cold area I often swap out my shoulder armour for a scarf.

  • yes am guilty

    A lot of the outfits that I've bought are essentially precursors to new outfits that do what I want, but better. Because of this, I have a handful of older outfits that I don't use, simply because the new one looks better.

    I don’t buy too many outfits because I like to use my own gear set ups. However I do love to use outfits on my alts because I haven’t established a look for them yet, and their gears constantly changing etc.

    I voted for other as the choices given assume little outfit use.

    I buy and use outfits a lot but since I have so many some outfits might not be used for some time until I get around to using it again. Others are seasonal, such as the Halloween themed outfits. Those might be used during the Holiday or season then not used again until next year.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    I like a few of the outfits, have purchased several, use them for a while, then revert to the armor set that I put so much effort into acquiring.

  • Tzarakiel.7490Tzarakiel.7490 Member ✭✭✭

    I bought a few a while back to use for characters I was leveling. They all reached level 80 2 years ago so I don't use most of my outfits anymore.

    I mostly use them for ranking-up characters and key farmers, so I don't have to choose between re-dying with every new armor piece or wandering around in brown rags. So most of my outfits get used. Logan's Pact armor was, I think, the only one so gotta-have I spent real money on it, but I hoard my black lion statuettes for whenever there are outfits available.

    But yeah, some of them rarely get used, and I kind of feel like I wasted my resources on them.

    I would have chosen, "I collect outfits and don't care if they get used" except that I do look at the unused ones and it bothers me that I don't use them.

    I've only brought a few over the years as I don't really like most of them, but out of the few I've brought I've rarely used them, they probably got may 3-4 times use each at most. I think a large part of why I brought them was simply because they were on sale and I had some gems.

    The one I use the most (but still very rarely) is probably the Arctic Explorer outfit, which I switch to if I'm spending lots of time in snowy maps, just to match the look of them.

    I do not buy outfits, but I do buy all the mounts and am guilty of not using them.

  • i buy only 1 or 2

    I rarely buy an outfit. Im also patient enough to wait for outfits I want to appear so I can buy them with lion statues. the occasional wardrobe unlocks I get from weekly key or map completions have been unkind to me in regard to outfits.
    the ones I do buy I make sure one of my characters is using it at the very least.

    Collecting outfits is a relative term...as in you can collect the ones you like or all of them, and you can just use the ones you like as well.

    It's horrific that what you see in the preview window may not show a deal breaker... Like cloth animations when moving, or weird dye issues. I really really wish there was an option to try items in open world for, for eg, 3min.

  • i always use outfits i buy and rarely not use

    I usually reserve the one or two holiday one's I have for the holiday's but for the most part I switch them out constantly. The outfit/wardrobe I wear usually depends on what mood I'm in on any given day. My favorite outfit though, is the exemplar's one. I think it's really cute.

    I voted that I always use outfits I buy. I have the problem that there are only very few medium armors I like and close to none heavy. So, all my toons with medium and heavy are with outfits. The only few outfits I do not use are those I received (not chosen), that I do not like much.

    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...

    There are some outfits that I regret buying. After the purchase and using it, I notice wonky visual aspects of it that I didn't notice at first that completely ruin my enjoyment of it.

    But there are outfits that I use all the time and have been money well spent, and outfits that work for just one or two characters & were worth it for that. I'm glad when I see an outfit and immediately go NOPE, NO THANKS! It's the ones that appeal at first but then later sour that I need to be wary of...
