I'm one of those folks who love to spend hours (and VIP money, if I have too) designing character looks. I was away missed the whole Glamour Armor boat, but I've read in other threads there was supposed to be more cosmetic armor and items coming.

Has anyone heard more about that? I've seen some pretty nice armor sets that I'd like for my toons, but they are unavailable now.

I'd like to see more specific sets that clearly scream Assassin, or Ranger, or Acrobat, or whatever.

While armors probably are the most visually obvious aspect to this matter, let's not forget the weapon appearances too in this bundle. There are some great name items that unfortunately do not convey a player's creative cool. As one example, Celestia, arguably the best shortsword in the game, has the visual appearance of a massive claymore. Really busts the concept of a small-blade carrying ninja spy or rogue if there is no way to customize appearances!

I often wondered why Turbine did not make more aggressive moves in the cosmetic Item/Armor/Weapon venture, when other MMO's have them as staples, and was informed that Turbine does not have an In-House Art department, so, there is a good chance that the market for cosmetics that many players seem to want, will be not be acted upon.

Truth is, I would like to see a Cosmetic Goggle Slot, Head Slot, Gloves and Boots as well, and would totally want a "Cosmetic Weapon/Shield" skins.

But, I doubt Turbine will be making moves in that direction anytime soon.

Yeah I wish they would pursue the cosmetics. I have three or four years of TP just sitting in my account since they're useless to me otherwise.

well they do have a whole line of Cosmetic Armors and helms if you are in the market... just saying.

Yeah I'm aware. None of them inspire me to buy.

I think there are certainly some nice sets for certain tastes. The somewhat limited options may not appeal to everyone. This is where implementing the full array of all the items in the game as a visual overlay would be a good way to go...maybe Turbine could charge a small fee for an appearance transmutation to pay the bills, rather than having to pay artists and design brand new cosmetic items.
