    Default [Concept] Rift Sets (With Artwork!]

    I had been toying around with sketching out some new ideas for Armorsets for Rift for both my own practice and for suggesting to the community. What came out of it was a concept for endgame acquisition of gear from Rifts. This isn't a suggestion that has to come in one grouping (hell the armorset designs alone could be taken, as could the system) but its meant as something of a point of discussion more than anything and an opportunity for myself to enhance my craft.

    My art style is very busy and dis-proportioned, so my apologies to those that get confused by viewing them. Each armor set is not meant to be compared to others in sake of scale either.

    -

    The concept stems from the acquisition of Shards of <Dragon> from endgame Major Rifts of the elemental type who's Shards you need. These Shards, as well as Planarite, can be traded to the Planar Faction vendors in Sanctum/Meridian to obtain new sets of gear (loose sets, not set bonus sets). Each set is based on one of the Rift types and is tailored to a specific class type.

    Fire - Plate DPS [Warrior] - Maelforge's Command (Prefix: Wanton)

    Earth - Plate Tank [Warrior] - Laethys's Endurance (Prefix: Golden)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...ysStrength.png

    Death - Cloth DPS [Mage] - Regulos's Vengeance (Prefix: Endless)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...sVengeance.png

    Water - Chain Tank [Cleric] - Akylios's Will (Prefix: Abyssal)

    Note: Scan came out really pale, armor is supposed to be made of "shells" with lots of octopi tentacles and such. Some seaweed in areas and gems/pearls.

    Life - Chain Healing [Cleric] - Greenscale's Promise (Prefix: Aelfwar)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...lesPromise.png

    Air - Leather DPS [Rogue] - Crucia's Shroud (Prefix: Legion)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...ciasShroud.png
    Note: That helmet isn't a beaky, I need to do an alternate angle, its more of a mouthguard. Also scratchy areas are cyclonic looking like the elementals.

    Although the DPS Plate set takes Shards of Maelforge to obtain, each piece is purchased from a different Rift vendor (As for the rest of the sets) to try to give people a reason to work on each Rift faction.

    Helmet - Mendicant Order/Mercurial Savants [Earth Rifts]
    Shoulders - The Storm Inquisition/Zephyrian Collective [Air Rifts]
    Chest - Order of Purity/The Shale Collegiate [Water Rifts]
    Legs - Order of Life Serene/Students of the Vale [Life Rifts]
    Gloves - Order of the Flame/Ember Scholars [Fire Rifts]
    Boots - Order of the Death Serpent/The Grim Disciples [Death Rifts]

    To obtain a set piece you must present a large volume of planarite (In excess of 15k+ per piece), Shards of the Dragon related to the piece you are obtaining (Warrior DPS for example will need Shards of Maelforge, Cleric Healing will need Shards of Greenscale), and you must be Revered with the Faction to obtain the piece.

    -

    Just a concept, figured some might like it, would give endgame players more reasons to do endgame Major Rifts and such. Mostly was a chance to show off some armorset designs and get some opinions. Please be gentle. I also intend to do some digital enhancement and coloring of the images eventually, no promises though.

    Nicely done. And I agree, planar-themed armor sets would rock.

    How about wait until we develop the defiant technology to breach the planar realms then we can actually attain Planar Item Sets

    Posted it in the wrong section, didn't wanna wait for a mod to move it. I was unaware there was a Suggestion forum (its kinda hidden since main forums don't display Subforums underneath them)

    i think the rift set appearence must be more close to the type of rift(earth, death etc).
    Like life rift armor may has some random plants on it and so on.

    That will be cool

    The Fire Set is shaped and based on flames, its got molten bits and a fiery red-orange color.
    The Water Set is made of shells/rocks with coral and tons of octopi tentacles.
    The Earth Set is made out of rock, dirt, crystals, and gems
    The Death Set has those weird tentacle spires the Death Rifts have and is very Death Rift-y with teeth, blackness, and black hole/spider-looking stuff.
    and The Life Set is made out of bark and has flowers/leaves all over it.

    oh, i can't edit my post after 5 minutes left
    so...
    death rift - spikes and bones
    water - like fish scales
    fire - flame animation, not just red
    ...

    you must add more variety to your sketches, to make it really unique.

    I just hope the game has support for animated armorsets.

    I have yet to see a piece of armor that had an animation.
