One of my favourite things about Lotro has always been the cosmetics. Most other games now have or have adopted cosmetics to allow players to customize their appearance, where as Lotro has always had this option. Well Turbine, it
is not time for you guys to take this to the next logical step. PLEASE make weapons/shields cosmetic. There are some very cool looking weapons and shields in this game, but there are also some very bad ones. Now, I realize that everyone has different tastes and what I like someone else wont and visa versa, but making weapons/shields cosmetic will finally give us, your customers, that final piece of the puzzle to finish off out individual looks.
I have been saving for years now certain weapons/shields in hopes that you would finally get around to adding this feature. Hopefully some mod or dev will read this and pass this along. I am not a programmer so I have zero idea of what would be involved in making this a reality, but seeing as how the other major slots have a cosmetic option I can only assume that the code is already inplace to allow for this option. Even Everquest, a 15 year old game now has this feature. You guys lead the way in making cosmetic choices a part of the game, finish what you started.
