Disappointing gear design.
I was hoping that someone will finally stop making MMORPG's inspired by Asian gear design where characters look like they were teleported from a stage where Korean K-pop boys band is performing but I was fast to learn that this is exactly what Ashes of Creation is doing.
One would think that after over two decades of RPG and MMORPG development someone there would get an idea to design gear which would look not only good but also would look practical (like Geralt's gear in Witcher 3) meaning no more ridiculous ultra clean gear which looks like it's a dress pretending to be a plated armour or even worse gear which was stolen from a women's dresser posing as anti-magic... yeah, ok we know that you just want to look at your character butt.
What I was hoping for is a game with a beautiful and interesting world where gear is not only coherent with world design but also look practical. For example caster class which is actually shielded by pieces of various armours (chainmail, plate, skins) while whole armour does look like and feels like it has a weight.
Instead what I see is game which literally stole whole dressing room from drag queen show X_X
***(not like there is something wrong with DQ's it's just a bad style for fantasy MMORPG).***
At least RPG developers like CDRed understand gear design better than all of the MMORPG developers and maybe one day someone will finally get that MMORPG doesn't need lingerie, dresses and other nonsense.
Ps. Whoever designed that while/gold armour from PAX trailer was playing or watching too much of Warframe and their Prime sets.
