Yes, and that second part is what I'm talking about. Makes no more sense to me than if you could buy a trunk full of different human skins for your toon. You can change accessories, but not the creature itself. This isn't "The Sims". (However, it would be kinda neat if, maybe every fifteen or twenty levels, you had the option to apply a "veteran" skin that gave your toon a slightly more muscular physique and perhaps a slightly more. . .um. . .experienced facial appearance. It just feels kinda strange that, at first visual impression, I sometimes mistake a veteran for a noob, or vice versa. For humans, anyway. Elves hardly age, Dwarves are born old, and Hobbits. . .well. . .I tend to ignore.)You get dyes for gear and tack. You get different hides and hide colors to use for the horse itself.
Agreed. But a lot of folks seem intent on swapping appearances back and forth and around more often than they change their socks. It's to those people that I feel that Turbine was throwing a bone. They didn't need to make them reusable. Indeed, I would kinda prefer that they hadn't (at least, it's not a feature that I'm at all happy to pay for). Personally, I don't think I will find much value in the reusability (other than for tack, perhaps, because the ability to apply a matching dye to future tack items when acquired would be handy--but the colors of the horse itself would not change).The re-usable thing is worthless to a lot of us. If I buy color pack five, all I want is copper. I guess I could re-use it.
