I had originally wanted to show off my mesmer in her new gear yesterday. But it took me a while to figure out what I want. When I had finally decided what gear to get for her (which I’m not going into now, because I do not want to be told that I’m doing it aaaall wrong and should have gone with berserker… :p), I put it on her and Flummi, being the girly girl asura that she is, stomped her foot on the ground and demanded to get something that looks better.
The new outfit from the side.
Her new armor
Why is there such a huge distance between her back and her belt in the back of the outfit? It looks weird! I am also not a fan of the front. It’s mostly the belt that doesn’t look good, if you ask me.
Once again I wonder: Why is there no wardrobe/cosmetic outfit system like both Lord of the Rings Online and Rift have them? I don’t think I can ask this question often enough. I want to have outfit slots instead of those silly transmutation crystals! Once again, I had to rely on the good old Hall of Monuments Heritage armor to save the day! The “after” picture shows the WvW armor with HoM chest and pants. Everything else is non-transmuted. I did actually have a look at various other pants, but most of them did not fit with the WvW chest. And when I tried to find a chest and a pants piece that I liked, I figured I should just go the easy HoM route for now.
She is now waiting for the 6th superior rune of the traveler to arrive. Once it’s here, she can go back outside and explore Tyria. She is just a few percent behind Paerjja when it comes to world exploration… although that still doesn’t say much as both are still in their 60s. ;)
Also, apologies for not having a more interesting topic today. I’ve spent the day in several meetings and my mind is pudding right now. I can’t write anything about the new patch either as our first fractals run is scheduled for Friday. ;)
I’ve been drooling over the plush tybalt backpack ever since I first read a post on reddit that this is in the game data. Now it’s finally here and bookahnerk bought two of them. One for me and one for himself. Since our main characters* both joined the Order of Whispers, this serves as a very nice memorabilia.
As with almost every of those backpacks, it doesn’t just look good on first sight, it’s also full of details. The face very much looks like Tybalt already, but the injured right paw just adds to that. But wait. That’s not all! What’s that little label there? Is that a heart? It’s certainly red. Bookahnerk figured it out while I was still wondering why ArenaNet would add a heart there. It’s an apple, of course! Great love for details, as always!
Check out the images below, especially if you’re still uncertain whether you want to have one or not.
*Our regular readers may wonder what happened to Flummi, my asura mesmer. She’s more or less living a good life in retirement. I have switched to Paerjja, my asura warrior, and am so much happier with the combat now. In the end, I’m a melee player and I should know better by now than to try to play something else.
I have to admit, I never paid that much attention to the necromancer skill videos. It’s a nice enough class but not high up on my priority list (which, as of right now, looks like this: warrior, ranger, mesmer, guardian/engineer, elementalist/thief/necromancer). But I was trying to look for cloth armour that isn’t as revealing as the scandalous one we’ve seen a few weeks ago. ;) And I found something that I really, really like! So, without further ado, have a look at it – if you haven’t noticed it yet either like me. Otherwise, this is probably boring for you ^^. Yes, I know it shows some cleavage. But I’m not totally prude… or rather, I like having my character’s pants area covered. ;)
What I especially love here is the details! How it’s shiny but really looks 3-dimensional. Not “flat” or anything like that. I already know that I’ll spend hours and hours trying to find the perfect outfits for my characters. Oh dear… (yes, like I do in all games where that is possible). ;)
