    For the short amount of time i played unholy wars i absolutely hated how i wasn't able to tell what weapons my opponent was using. It was always a lightbringer, sunbow, or some retarded spider bow. Sure, people are going to buy skins that look cool from a cash shop but i like to know what i am fighting against and that was a big problem for me in UW.

    Also has RoA mentioned anything about transmuted weapons at all? I always loved using them before they were nerfed to the ground and i thought it was a cool way to keep a weapon longer whenever it was low on dura and feel viable while doing it. It seems like they are going to be semi useful early and partial mid game, but whenever people start obtaining better gear they are going to be used just as much as they were when darkfall went down. Hardly at all.

    Agreed. Skins shouldn't be considered. Transmutes didn't have much in viability either except in very few playstyles or were only for farming certain mobs.

    I'd prefer that they make skins for characters/mounts only. i.e. Sunglasses, Tattoos, Simple shirts/pants.
    Armor and weapons should not have skins.

    Sunglasses... in Darkfall? Seems like an odd suggestion, but the rest sound cool.

    I never understood the problem with not being able to see people's weapons in Unholy Wars. It really doesn't effect the outcome of the fight at all.

    Skins were just a money grab anyway that were just DFO skins with updated textures, once they implemented skins and shit into the game was when they started fucking the game all up.

    The problem with it is priority.

    When you play some you'll understand a bit better, its not something UW taught

    you would play a fight completely different if your opponent has a hell raiser and you have a knightblade

    Skins should be achievable via feats. Ie; you crafted 500 hell raisers, you unlock the recipe for "demon blade". Statistically, it's the same as a hell raiser, but maybe it looks cooler.

    Charging players for skins is not something that belongs in a subscription based MMO. We're paying a monthly fee for continually updated content.

    exactly


    This i wouldn't mind though because it would be a part of the game and people would know what they are going up against. ex.) "Ohh shit hes got a demon blade" aka hellraiser, aka r70

    I'm okay with skins and all that jazz. It's just another money dump for those that have the extra cash and want to support the game. As long as it's cosmetic only and somehow available as a random chaos chest loot drop to give others without disposable income a chance to obtain it as well.

    But if... let's call it. The AssSticker 2H Sword skin ONLY replaces the r90 2H sword... Then you would know that.. Oh instead of the normal r90 skin he has the AssSticker skin. It's the exact same thing. But if they allowed it so that you could but the AssSticker skin on the newbie 2h sword, then yes that would be stupid.

    Nothing wrong with that.
