You know it would be nice to have an option to toggle the Docent on and off for looks. Or locking in the look of a Docent. Nothing is more annoying then upgrading your docent to find out your look like a fashion train wreck now.

It's not Warforged-specific, but if you remove the size increase from True Reincarnation and add the option to make both larger and smaller characters to the store, that'll apply to Warforged as well...

As mentioned several places, what about simply letting WF choose the different body types without having to have the body?
I'd like to be able to have the DoD Adamantine body look on my Barb without having to spend a feat on Adman body.

Plus hair.

What do you have against my WF having a big 80's style Mohawk? I mean it would be a wood (or whatver) Mohawk, but it'd still be cool.


WF Barb + Mohawk = pure win.
WF Barb + Mohawk + Adamantium Body look without having to take feat = pure win + profit

Oooh anyone remembers the "planned mod" "pimp my WF" - Will the new cosmetic changes include the fly skill? :D :D :D

I want my Warforged Barbarian to have an oversized Afro.

I am not joking. Please take this into serious consideration. I don't care if it costs 1,000 TP, I would buy it with no regrets.

Some other ideas for consideration, on a less serious tone:
Other cosmetics would be attached Warforged components (like an Armbow, or that funky sword-arm thing they have in the Eberron book). Retro rockets which fire from my feat instead of the normal feather fall graphic. Eyes which can zoom in and out, based on how my actual camera is zoomed.
Graphics for capes/cloaks.

BUG:
You can see as options, purchase, and then use Female hairstyles while on Male characters - and vice versa. They don't give you the hairstyle you bought, either - but one that is one of the styles for the proper gender.



However I like the unique styles available - even if many of the male ones look like refugess from bad 80s metal videos.

Great feature in theory but I would want to see hair styles that standout from what is available in character creation to see a value in purchase. The hair styles featured so far seem too run of the mill.

Might be fun if you included some of the "Pimp my Warforged" options from a couple of years ago... :D

Agreed
How about something that stands out? Big Mohawks/spikes/topknots (with shaven head) etc would all seem to kind of fit the fantasy setting. The new ones offered seem to be minor variants of those available at character creation.
Cool, but kind of..meh.

First off - kudos for more choices! And, the longer female styles, which admittedly aren't as long as some of the originals, don't seem to get lost underneath armor, etc, which is great. :)

I tried a few different ones on an elf, a human and a halfling. I thought they looked best on the elf and human. The few styles I tried on my halfling all emphasized the odd shape of her head, so she'll likely keep her original one. To be fair, though, I didn't try them all on her.

On another note: The styles I tried on the human all changed her hair color a bit, too. [I used the reverter between tries, so each style was changing from her original color.] She went from kinda strawberry blond to much more auburn. Fwiw, there were also very subtle changes to the elf [black hair] and halfling [mahogany-ish], too - only noticeable because I was specifically looking.

edit: I just tried a new style on a dwarf. The style looks okay, but changing the style changed her color, too. She had light [orange] red hair, and it's now auburn-esque as well.

Really? So now I can make a character that looks just like me? SWEET!

Agreed as well.

I think it's absolutely awesome that you all have started down the road of actual in game customization & it's understood that once this code is in place, more styles should be much easier to implement, but I was underwhelmed with the initial roll out of styles in the store. I honestly expected, if nothing more, a Mohawk or something along those lines just to have it in there to show off the new option.

Kudos for the good work implementing the idea though & please keep working in this direction <hint> beyond just hair</hint>. The more vanity material you can add to the store, the more money you will make off of EVERYONE. Cause,deep down, we all just wanna play dress up while we kill dragons & trolls :)

Well currently theres only 2x colours for base metals , the dark (adamant) and the light (mithril)

There should be a "composite" colour(s), maybe some good old steel greys at least.

You could also think of copper, brass and other colours that could work there also.

I think some of these should be availble at chaarcter creation anyway, and changable by "dyes" or metal replating/painting at the store :)

Okay I would like to put a snippet in about the above (dragon horn) hair style I was very disappointed that I put it on my dwarven chick and it got lost in the back of her armor and doesn't move but laid against the back! Please make it move like the pony tail! Thanks.

You think we will ever get "alter body type" added to the store or game?

I'm glad to see some new shorter hair styles as several of my toons' hair gets lost in their armor or robes. I will be choosing new styles for all of them.

Thanks for the screenies, the pics are kind of hard to see in the store! :D

Hmm.. people mentioned mini-WF, and that's a solid idea. Eberron lore has the WF scout, which could be about halfling-sized. You'd get size and stealth skill bonuses, etc.
