    Another day, another thing to overreact to on the forums.

    I imagine you'll be seeing all sorts of new things for the expansion, and a callback to older eras is not the most awful thing in the world. If folks wanna get angry and upset about that, then once again I think you might be taking your gaming a little too seriously and might need a break.

    Or, you know, throw tantrums. I'm sure that'll help.

    I have no idea if you as an individual are irrational being I have never met you; but yes, your post was. Those are two very different things.

    ... though, telling me to "please stop" and where do I get the idea I can post my annoying (to you) comments, is kind of the antithesis of your vehement " WE CAN VOICE WHAT WE WANT!!!" statement, isn't it?

    I mean, hell, irrational posts bother me to no end but I wouldn't tell anyone ever to stop posting. Just to be more rational when they do.

    Is 'patrolling' a thing now? Can we make it a thing?

    edit: read that wrong. Anyways. there aren't even new gear models coming for wardrobe that's half decent. I don't even see any wardrobe items that look like "armor/gear" outside of things already in-game anyway..However the dimension artist just pumps out totally new items left and right. But wardrobe/gear seems to be done by a high-school art class working with commodore 64's.

    To me, re-using the gear skins from Rift 1.x makes sense here. We're going back in time to fight them, might as well go back in time with the look too. Here's my more important question though:

    Does anyone normally use their actual gear as their appearance? I'd estimate not, as most people utilize the wardrobe system anyway. Sure, some people will argue that the top end gear needs to look good (and in my opinion the old stuff does look good) but I will always use my wardrobes over it any day of the week.

    Take a look at the stats, you'll see how impressive the upgrade really is.
    A very poor attempt at White Knighting. I'm very disappointed.

    We are new armor sets for the expansion - some of them are already done in fact.

    On a side note, a super high % of the player base uses the wardrobe feature to customize how they look.

    Yeah, recycling more raid bosses in the first expansion of the game. As an expansion - Rift's first expansion so much has been recycled.

    Really, you're justifying reusing the armour because you are reusing the bosses in guise of time travel. I doubt it's a co-incidence but T2 was recycled is that because we though Volan before. I'm just using the same logic.

    What has the wardrobe function got to do with it. We've had the wardrobe since 1.x and I'm sure just as many people used it back then. Some of the old tier sets make great wardrobe. Let's be honest here it has nothing to do with time travel. Is it a case of money or time?

    I'd wager time travel and not money, being we're going to the planes soon, water being first, so they would need to tie up lore and chronological timey wimey stuff before we depart for there. Aky and GS make sense, being that's where we're headed, more or less. I've seen the raid streamed- looked really fun and different than the old versions of HK and GSB.

    yeah, if all the raid gear looks bad / boring / common, people will use the wardrobe to change their look, that's not rocket science

    You could consider this laziness I guess. I would consider it efficiency though. As stated, most people will not even display it any way, favoring wardrobe outfits they have purchased with real money. Why waste art department time on something that's not going to be shown most of the time anyway?

    I hope so. More money for them means more Rift for me! This is the best F2P model on the market by *far*. The team is paid with real world currency, not chupacabra tears and the laughter of unicorns.

    well then, I guess all the people calling Trion FTP Asian style cash grab are correct then. Typically people want to see new artwork, when something new is released in a game, especially for major content/expacs, crazy right? I mean the wardrobes are not even very good.

    Trion at least needs to put effort into the wardrobes they sell for credits. But dang the White Knighting in this thread is stronk.

    Recycled content is the result of F2P. I assume with 3.0 all three tier will be Akylios. And the armour will be HK and each tier will be slight recolours. The continent will be a re-skinned ember isle. That's the direction the game is going. If free to play is bring in all this money it sure as hell isn't going to the dev team.
