    Needs more screen shots.

    We're not pro enough to have HK gear to look at in game.

    My Soulpyre from Zilas went from looking like a Shepherds staff, to looking like a sex toy. WTF Trion...

    Seriously.... before the changes it was basically a giant cane.. looked like what a sheep herder or monk might carry. It was so "plain" for being in HK i was quite amazed. However now it looks like even more of a joke.

    Was joking about its new look in guild chat last night and several guildies simply couldnt stop laughing at it. It now is a staff with 3 balls from smallest to largest going up the very top of it. It seriously looks like some sex toy or like im supposed to be in some monastery banging a gong.

    Trion whoever designs your weapon skins for the most part is not all that talented. Most of the relics are cool, but 2 bad those skins have been reused occasionally in game. How you go from designing something like a Genesis Pylon with moving tentacles to something as pitiful as this from HK (yes i know the soulpyre is not a relic) i dont know. Im amazed that most of the HK weapons are so "un-epic" in their looks even though they are from a higher tier.

    Then again... i remember t1/2 dungeon weapons/armor often looking better then t1/1.5 Raid weapons/armor so it shouldnt be a surprised i guess.

    /sigh

    Lets just say that I don't play Rift for the in-game wardrobe/item aesthetics.

    I'm at work so I can't post screenshots until I get home. I dunno if I agree though, I like most of the weapons I've seen. My two hander off Estrode looks cool save for some weird rust colored design on it that looks like blood from a distance. The strength one hander off Inwar looks like the one from the HK loading screen. The Sicaron tanking mace looks cool but I don't know how to describe it. My Grugonim shield (with parry, lol itemization) still looks like the saw blade shield from FC.

    They don't care it's obvious. Apparently it's too hard to add a few new decent weapon/armor designs/models to accompany new items in every patch. Great job trion.

    My Savage Beastcarver stayed the same though I'm not too upset since it was a decent skin to begin with.

    Moldering Decay Budgeon went from spikey-hurt-a-lot to... WTF IS THAT CRAP OF A MODEL?!


    Really Trion, you shouldve just left the models as they were... You are getting pathetic with your decisions lately...

    meh most videos used 2 tanks, we did on our first kill. it was way easier/much cleaner with 1 tank.. but the off tank we used last time was kinda ******ed anyway. he died more than our melee on the first kill ;p

    My tank sword off trash still looks like a dagger, and my double barrel still only has one barrel. I sad.

    Copy to PTS. They've got updated models and graphics for everything now on PTS. And yes, the double barrel does actually have two barrels.
