Armor Redesign

The weekend got off to a nice start Friday when Mythic released the second part of their series on armor redesign. It’s been just over a month since they unveiled the first six armor changes, so perhaps we can expect to wait another month for the final installation.

Anyway, here are the 14 armor changes that have been posted so far:

Order

Archmage

Bright Wizard

Engineer

Knight of the Blazing Sun

Swordmaster

White Lion

Witch Hunter

Destruction

Black Guard

Chosen

Marauder

Shaman

Squig Herder

Witch Elf

Zealot

I’m especially happy because I finally got a look at the new Witch Elf designs, which I’ve been absolutely itching to see since the first shots came out.

However, I have to agree with Skarbd that Order got the short end of the stick when it comes to visuals. The armor for the Destruction careers feels a lot more creative, intimidating, and, well, just plain cooler.

I think the redesigns are an improvement on the whole, but I feel bad for the poor Knight of the Blazing Sun in particular. Seriously, that career can kick my little Witch Elf tush. However, when my friends played WAR one of the reasons they refused to play the KotBS was because of how it looked.

Skarbd sums it up pretty well when he says, “I can imagine Rivs, seeing my character charge across the battlefield and the only thing he has to avoid, is being blinded by the dazzle of my armour. Though I don’t think he needs to worry about the dazzle, since he’d be bent over double in a fit of laughter.”

Want to help save Order from fashion purgatory? Let Mythic know you want to see your gosh darn career already?

Then head over to the thread on the official forums to give them a piece of your mind.
