Anybody else notice the baked-in shine on some of the newer weapons/armors?

Recommended Posts

The first time I recall them doing this was on the Flame Serpent weapons, but you can also see the shine present in some of the Black Lion skins and – most recently – on the Decade armor and weapon sets.

My theory is that they're doing this so textures can look reflective on settings where reflections are disabled — a good thing for players on low settings (though it could just be that they brought on a new texture artist on board relatively recently and this is just their style). I don't think think they look bad or anything, but I find it gives those newer items a different aesthetic than the rest of the game.

I'm just curious as to how many other people have picked up on this and what your thoughts are.
