Keeping my fingers crossed that eventually they let us customise our own armor, after all who really wants to look like someone else. As to the guard armor, I would suggest that most will just disgard this after the first few days have passed.
Anyway I have been chatting with Shyla Starhearth and she says she is about ready to get a new outfit and if I wanted her old one I could have it. In return I just have to take Cyril's squirrel for a walk round Sanctum each morning. Seems fair.
