Warhammer Online – Armor Set Redesign: Part 1
Mythic announced that they are starting to redesign character armors, after a request from the community.
Armor sets are an integral part of WAR. Not only are they a key functional aspect of the game, but they’re also a badge of honor, a visual display of all the hard work you’ve put into your character. We often get feedback from you, our players, requesting more diversity between the armor sets, especially in Tier 4 where it really counts.
Your requests have not gone unheard! For the past few months, our items and art teams have been hard at work redesigning the look of every armor set in the game. We’d like give you a glimpse of what’s in store by showing you before and after shots of some of the most popular Tier 4 armor sets. We have six careers to show you today, but fear not, more will come! Read on!
Below you will find before and after shots for six careers (three Order and three Destruction) in their Sentinel, Conqueror, Darkpromise, and Invader armor set. This is still a work in progress, and the set dye colors are not applied yet, but you should be able to get a good idea of how each set has changed. The teams had two goals in mind: Make each armor set look visually unique, and make the Tier 4 armor sets look as epic as they should for all the effort that goes into obtaining them. We feel they’ve met these goals and hope you do, too.
Now, here comes the important part! We want to hear from you. What do you think of the changes? Do you love them? Do you hate them? Let us know, and please be as detailed as possible! We’ve set up a special thread here for discussion about the new armor set art. The items and art teams are very excited about the improvements, but at the end of the day, they want you, the players, to be happy with them, too.
