Wardrobe: Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
With Diablo 3, i’ve managed to level up the Witch Doctor to max and accumulated some Paragon levels, and have now switched to a Wizardess that’s 10 levels shy of max level. I think i’m going to like my Wizardess more than my Witch Doctor. For one thing, i selected the female gender for the Wizardess : D
I tried looking into the transmog thingy to see what kind of skins are available for my Wizardess. Playing around with the Transmog user interface, i finally realized how good Guild Wars 2’s wardrobe system really was. Transmog is good for doing what it does, that is changing the skin of one item.
But when you want to change more than one piece and see if the changes match, Transmog is a terrible tool for the job. It is unable to preview all the changes that you’ll want for the entire outfit. Every piece has to be done individually and equipped to see if the new look is what i would like.
Not able to preview multiple changes, Transmog tool is not for playing doll.
Marvel Heroes circumvents this issue by implementing skin changes through costumes. Each costume represents the entire skin, head to toe, of a character. That way, there isn’t multiple parts that can be changed individually and doesn’t run into the problem of not being able to preview all the would be changes.
Another thing with the Transmog is that it is not exactly clear which items can or cannot be transmogrified. Like Bracers, which seemed like a normal piece of armor, cannot be transmogrified. There also isn’t any text or clue that i could easily see that indicate which piece of armor can or cannot be transmogrified.
Ok so much for now, Geek Generation out.
