Costume Request: Jester Costume

Hello Friends,

I politely ask for a Jester Outfit with functional Jingle Bells to be added to the game.
The idea with the bells would be that they act as a modified footstep sound or an addition to it.
So, they would probably be rather on the quiet end, and be more a wholesome addition to the outfit, to make it more complete/immersive(?).
I'm sure this can be done in a way, without the bells getting repetitive or annoying (probably by adding some variational bell sounds).

If there is a place for Jesters within Ashes of Creation, then I believe that adding such a costume would open addtional ways for people to roleplay their Characters, while also encouraging players to explore the role of being a Jester.
So far I am currently aware we don't seem to have a costume that would fill this niche, or do we?

The thought of seeing adventurous Jesters all across Verra brings me great joy.

"No Adventure is complete without Jingle hat and Jingle feet!"

  • I wholeheartedly second this idea.

    There is no greater harmony than that between a rogue, a jester costume and, most importantly, their bells. Though costly to one's stealth, that price of bells does not compare to the artistry that this jingling attire brings to assassination. A soft melody before a swift death; a gentle lullaby for the weary and fearful before their much-deserved rest. This cheerful ringing should be allowed to grace the ears of all denizens of Vera and will surely find a place in their hearts, minds and dreams.

    Through cheerful chiming we may abate the solemn sorrow of a silent struggle. Please consider bringing this joy, laughter and music to the people of Vera.
  • That is exactly what I want to do... Share the battlefield with a peasant in a goofy outfit. I hate dealing with these clowns at ren fairs in real life. I hate when people try to role play them, and go full cringe mode. Still, this is a far better ask than wings. I hope you get it.

    "The death is coming." - they said before falling dead on the groud.

    While I may not have anything to add what hasn't been already said, I'm here to support this beautiful idea.

    This is a great idea!!

    I already know all the Jesters are going to be cultists.
    I wish I were deep and tragic
  • So, we're going to be fighting alongside Cicero, this time...

    I can kind of see players RP'ing jesters in courts or taverns, but you lost me at players adventuring in jester outfits - do you mean jesters like travelling entertainers on the road or players in jester outfits actually adventuring and fighting in groups with other players?

    Could your Bard not be a jester?

    If you have a merchant and royalty costume in the game (granted that its from Kickstarter), why not add stuff like this for the same reason: RP Value? That's the only point you need.

  • Might even be perfect for the trickster class.

    They confirmed Jesters long time ago.
    They just chose to give a different name. Check wiki for Pyrian. You'll see what I mean. >:)
    Most people never listen. They are just waiting on you to quit making noise so they can.

    Yes. We need jesters! Gotta have Shaco in AoC.

    I second the rogue jester. Stealth is already meh, might as well add a few handicaps to make a gank feel better hehe!

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead have no desires, petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    Need the toe bells for the Merry Jig at 3:00

  • I second this motion. I absolutely loved my Jesters skin on ESO so this would be a welcome addition to Ashes :D
  • Guys we DO have a Charlatan and Trickster class config you do realize that yeah? :D
    I am all for a Jester skin.
