    Full Rift Cosmetics?

    Would it be unreasonable to ask for all of the rift armour to be available as cosmetics instead of only the helms? They were such cool sets.

    Re: Full Rift Cosmetics?

    My guess this will depend on how many helms are bartered for. If not many people barter for the helms, they may not put the resources in for the rest of the armor pieces. The more items that are purchased, the more "successful" they are.

    Unfortunately, more people would probably barter for a full set than just the helms.

    Yea. Also for some classes the helmet is just a circlet. Also there are alot of people that like to not show their helmet. Most of my cosmetics have helm not sowing. Of all the armour/cosmetics we can choose to not show, I think helm is probably the most 'turned off' piece.

    I agree. Well hopefully someone will see this thread and maybe include the full sets. I'd love to wear the rift-defender set on my captain.

    Or you could run the Rift with 6 of your level 65 buddies...It was so much fun the other night(we did just that twice now to get some people the armor for cosmetic purposes...)
    It is not only fun, but the nostalgia of being in there again was alot of fun......

    Yes, but even if I did I wouldn't be able to wear the champion set cosmetically on my captain.

    I doubt they'd ever allow light armour to wear heavy cosmetics, but it would be nice for those of same armour level to be allowed the rift cosmetics now.

    Except that's what the bartered rift helms let you do, a RK can now wear the Helm of the Gloom-bane, the champion helm!

    Re: Full Rift Cosmetics?

    I wouldn't mind if they released a full rift cosmetic as long as they changed they dye patterns so that when they are shown people know you don't have the real deal and those with the real deal from waaaaay back when still have their feather in their cap so to speak.

    My thought as well. Sure I can agree that most of the helm designs are pretty cool looking, but I almost never wear a helm even on my heavy armour wearing Guard. Little Lexa wears a circlet most of the time.

    If they release the full rift cosmetic sets, they will probably make them class-specific.

    I'd hope not, and that's what I'm requesting in this thread. The new armour is so yucky and often ridiculous looking. Would be nice to wear the coolest sets in the game on any class.

    Re: Full Rift Cosmetics?

    Yeah. But it's much cheaper to create a class-specific cosmetic version of an existing armour, than it is to create new Hobbit, Elf, and Dwarf models for the Rift Captain armour.

    Actually because everyone has the same body shape ( IE no 4 armed aliens ) gear is adjusted by the scaling already in place on the skeletons. IE: there is nothing they have to do besides actually making the basic assets and testing it. ( Notice how if you go to the rift vendor, you can already try everything on...I know exactly what my dwarf RK looks like in ALL rift sets...I just can't equip them )

    How does the dressing room work? it lets you see stuff you cant wear. i honestly dont know... have you tried linking captain-only armor to a hobbit and have them try it on?

    See my above post...and yes, a hobbit can try on captain gear, just like a dwarf can

    I fully agree that the Rift Cosmetics should all be available, even the weapons, when cosmetic weapons come about! It's all so awesome looking!
