The Mirror of Glamering is now available for preview on Lamannia! From the Release Notes: (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/438926-Lamannia-Release-Notes-(Last-Updated-8-28-14))

Like the way a particular armor or helmet looks? Make a cosmetic version of it! The Mirror of Glamering is a new item which allows someone to copy the look of an armor, docent, or helmet and create a new cosmetic item! The item from which the cosmetic copy is being made from is not consumed, nor altered. The created cosmetic item is Bound to Account.

This sounds great, it's basically what everyone's been asking for ever since the first version of cosmetic items in the store.

However, this feels more like a basic feature though, not a premium one. I'm fine with it being in the store, just wish they'd drop in game as well. Most of us have dozens of characters and they could all use at least one of these. Please either keep the price very low, or make them rare drop as well. (By that I mean roughly "portable hole rare" not "tome of fate +2 rare")

It can do armor, helmets, and goggles. Any chance of getting a shield cosmetic spot added to the character sheet?

They are not bound right now. I made a couple. They do not say Bound to Account and can be posted on the AH. Bug Reported.

I don't have Lamania on my computer, so I can't say how well it works, but I just wanted to give me feedback, "Thank you!"

I think this is a fantastic addition. With this and the Conjure Bolts scroll thing working now, all the melee love, and the hireling menu additions, U23 is really looking to be a Quality of Life improvement update. Thank you so much!

I think this will be such a fantastic addition to the game. The only thing I'm sad about is how many random generated armor appearances no longer drop in our current game to be glamored, namely the often beautiful random generated elven chainmails such as:

I have a couple that are close but not quite this exact version. (Correct Overskin/wrong underskin and vice versa, correct armor entirely but wrong color, etc.)

I'm also hoping this is added eventually for shields, and if so that shield and orb appearances can be interchangeable.

YES! Yes yes yes yes yes!! *bounces around like a 2-year-old on a sugar-bender*

I've been wanting this for SO FREAKING LONG.

I can finally keep the look of some of the old lowbie armors I have instead of having to sadly toss them into the bank to rot and "upgrade" to fugly new armor.

Yayyyyyyy! *Kermit flail* :D

As long as it's relatively inexpensive (100 points or less) I'll probably buy a lot of them.

I logged into Lamannia and made several cosmetics with the Mirror. The cost of the Mirror looks to be 245 TP for one use which is reasonable considering that you would pay substantially more for a DDO Store cosmetic outfit. The manufactured cosmetic helms and armor/outfits are not bound at all, so they can be traded and sold on the AH. The cost in TP per Mirror use will prevent massive sales of these cosmetics on the AH unless the payment in Astral Shards per cosmetic justifies the expense.

Pleased with this product. I will make a cosmetic Silver Flame chain mail armor (Chain of Conviction) with a cosmetic Minos Legens when this is available on the live servers.

Yes, I suggested a Dressing Room tab like the Pet tab on Inventory earlier to deal with all of the new cosmetics. If DDO wants players to buy many Mirrors of Glamering, they will have to provide space to store all of the new cosmetics.

This was noted earlier, the devs seemed to indicate it was WAI- which makes sense, as the mirror turns an armor purely cosmetic, meaning there's no balance issues.

Moreover, giving the players the ability to auction ones off, means more mirrors bought, means more sales.

Ergo.. WAI seems very likely.

(By that I mean roughly "portable hole rare" not "tome of fate +2 rare")

The drop from gold dice rolls [though I think on natural 100s or so; very rarely, in any case] and the devs seemed to indicate that, as a store item, it has the usual small chance of dropping from chests or end rewards [much like xp or renown potions, or portable holes].

Given the massive store presence this will have, especially with being Shard House auctionable, it's unlikely they'll make the mirrors more accessible than that.

Items which have special racial requirements (such as a docent) will create a cosmetic item with the same racial requirements.

Does that include the special racial requirements like the Iconic starter gear? I can understand a docent look not really being available to fleshies (...although I believe WF can put on fleshy cosmetic armor...) but my rogue is still miffed that he didn't get the SK armor with Shadowfell just because he's a halfling. Also, I'm pretty sure I still have some old race-restricted gear from back in the day (the old "lower ML" kind); would those also still be race-restricted?

Yes, this. Please. Let us put our BTA cosmetics in a closet where it's available for EVERYONE. If we have multiple characters who'd look good in a particular helm, they should both be able to wear it. And the Iconic cosmetics should be BtA and wearable by anyone (keeping the WF/fleshy split in mind).

Can we have a Mirror of NPC Glamering? There's some pretty cool outfits among NPCs I'd like to steal... *g*

This please. I LOVE the look of the Morninglord armor, and I'd love to use it for my paladin. And the Purple Dragon Knight armor looks VERY cool on a more human-sized person (judging by the smaller guards standing around), which I'd like to use as well.

Although, thinking about it, if cosmetic stuff is BtA, you could just use the mirror on the ACTUAL iconic armor rather than the cosmetic, and make copies of it. An extra step, but still. If so, I'm going to be VERY happy if I can make iconic cosmetics for all my characters. :D

What is the limitation that requires the race restriction to be applied to the cosmetic item?

For a cosmetic item this restriction seems rediculous, since the item has absolutely no effect by its very nature.

So when an item is generated, and it is tagged as race restricted the appearance is locked in too? What is the difference between an item and the exact same item with the race restriction tag?

Well, I just tested it and the iconic armors are race-restricted when turned cosmetic. That's really, really annoying. :(

Is there any way the iconic armors could be unlocked for race? I mean, it's not like the Morninglord armor, for instance, wouldn't work just fine on other elves, drow, humans, etc. Same with the Purple Dragon armor.

I won`t be able to get on lammania to test it so I`ll ask here.

How do these work with warforged docents? (Or do they even?) are they static or change based on armor feat? I would really like to play warforged again if I could get a nice cosmetic docent and some of the random gen ones look nice.

If you have an old item that has one of the old single use cosmetic armor kits, and you use a mirror of glamouring on it, will it create a cosmetic armor out of the the old kit, or just the armor to which it was applied? Basically, I'm asking if this is a way to get those old kits (no longer available) back in the game as BtA cosmetics. If this isn't the case yet, can we make it happen?

If they can do that, those things should be totally unbound, I need to get the heavy version of the black plains armor kit somehow, and it disappeared from the store :D

Making them unbound would be a good idea in general... I don't want to farm Titan Awakens to get a Skull Fetish Mask cosmetic and such, I'm sure Turbine would get better profit out of them that way (and I promise I won't call it P2W).

I think you can find both Brigandine and splint mail at several vendors, I think even the guys in the harbor still offer them. And there are some named armors with splint mail look if I am not mistaken.

If I could give a million +1's for this idea and the speedy implementation of it I would.

BUG: (This may have been mentioned before or already known) I tested on my swashbuckler, glamering a halfplate, the cosmetic halfplate breaks swashbuckler and also grants PRR as if wearing heavy armor. Glamered armors that qualify for swashbuckler (Marilith chain tested) did not break swashbuckler. This is probably same for centered/uncentered - This may be WAI (keep pajama wearers in pajama's i guess?)

Since I'm not a man of many words, here's my short review/feedback:

Made a glimmering kit out of Red Dragonhide armor and Red dragon helm. Made a new toon and ran through Korthos in Red armor and helm.

The Mirror is really awesome, I love it.

Pros:
+ BtAoA (consider BtAoE, trading those can have its merits);
+ ML 0;
+ You can run a centered monk in (what appears to be) armor.

Cons:
None that I can think of, will have to see the price.

Good job on the Mirror, devs. It's something I'm looking forward to having fun with. Unless the price is outrageous I'll be buying a lot of those.

Sadly it picks up the look of the underlying armor not the kit applied. My wife and I were quite hopeful as we have armor laying around that we only wear in public now because it is too low level for the characters to use in quest. And the kits in question never were converted. :(

you sure you didnt put on the armor itself?, if not then yea thats definately a bug. it shouldnt grant any bonus other then appearance. and shouldnt effect the character at all from using their abilities.


as for the racials... I dont see a point in seperating them other then the wf/bf and fleshies, obviously the character models dont support that. Fleshies cant wear docent designs and wf/bf cant wear regular armor. but there shouldnt be anything more separating then that. a wf and bf have the same body model dont they?, aside from the facial features, a bf looks just like a wf if it doesnt have its cosmetic on, so they should be able to wear the same cosmetics. imo you should look into a way to make cosmetics be compatable with all races, my artificer would love to have a more steampunk feel with a cybornetic type cosmetic, course the spiked suit from the bf would look nice too.

havent tested it, but to make this good, All of it should be ml0, (seen the picture from before that said it had a ml of 24, since hte armor used to create it was that level but as a cosmetic it shouldnt do that)... also, not really sure on the bindings, I dont see a reason they should be bta though... also, storage.... we need some place to put this stuff, taking up bankspace from items for cosmetics just doesnt cut it. already have 4-5 items from expnasions and such and its already pushing it... if it didnt effect our storage then alot more people may buy this.

I haven't tested it, due to lam client not working for me this update, but the mirror copies the item. It's very unlikely that whatever feats you have would affect it. Your docent alone won't have the adamantine look, wearing it while having the feat does.

Been thinking about this. While I like the idea of Cosmetic Weapon skins, I don't they'ld work unless skinned onto a specific weapon like the old Armor Kits. I mean, I can see it getting funky when form meets function if I (using a Cosmetic Slot like the Armor & Helm/Goggle currently do) skin my Handwrap using Monk with a Bloody Hooked Blade look.

I did test this. No go on the Kit.

I would have bought this immediately upon logging into U23 regardless of the price. But alas I will be ignoring it like many of the new options. The armor I want is a kit that was never converted to a cosmetic. To add insult to injury, the recent sale on cosmetics was advertised with an image that showed one of the versions of the armor I want but not on sale... or even in the store. A bit of false advertising there.


Is it possible to on a WF/BF to glamour an Adamantine docent look, then feat swap out Adamantine Body, and still have the Adamantine docent look?
If these work the way I think they do, the mirror simply creates an item that has a value storing the location in a data file for which appearance to use. Since a single docent will look different based on the type of body feat, I fear the cosmetic will be pointing to the same data that the docent did and will change appearance based on body feat as well.

I mean, I can see it getting funky when form meets function if I (using a Cosmetic Slot like the Armor & Helm/Goggle currently do) skin my Handwrap using Monk with a Bloody Hooked Blade look.

Cosmetic weapons wouldn't be that bad. They would just have to either adjust the animations for the cosmetic weapon type (bad idea) or only allow the functioning of a cosmetic weapon when equipped with the same type of weapon. So if you have a staff cosmetic and swap to a bow the cosmetic turns off. Then when you swap back to any staff the cosmetic turns back on.

Yes, on the current Lamannia build only Armor and Helmets are working correctly.

A Mirror is currently 245 TP on Lamannia without the 50% discount applied in the DDO Store.

I always liked the old "Splint Mail" and "Brigandine" looks.

Might be hard to find one of these to Glamer now though!

They are often if the reward list for the second quest in the Sharn Syndicate quest chain, "Dirty Laundry"

There is issue with Cosmetic helmets made by mirror. Once you use cosmetic helmet and change normal helm, the skin from cosmetic disappeared. You have to manually take off cosmetic and put it on again. It's quite frustrating if you want use clickies from helmets.

What's more cosmetic helmets are unbound and tradable. I have no idea if it's WAI or not.

I'm actually pretty excited about this.

I've always loved the way Silken Mail looked on a female elf or drow, and it'll be cool to keep the look and wear armor more suitable to my class/level.

Assassin Initiate Leathers are another favorite, with the crisscrossed detailing.

Suggestion: Is it possible we could get a version of the mirror that removes "garbs" from armors/robes? Because there are several that I really like except for some big clunky piece of junk that got glued to the top of it for no discernible reason. Or maybe a separate item that can do this to a cosmetic armor? Because that would be SWEET.

Specifically, I would love to be able to wear this without the blue towel:

I've tried, it's not on any random gen outfit that I've ever discovered. The random outfits actually are much more limited than robes, which have crazy numbers of permutations. Every time I think I've seen them all, I find new ones.

The mirrors don't need to be bound, but if you can't see what something looks like before you buy it on the AH, you're not likely going to buy it. And if you can't see it in the trade window, you won't know what the person is trading you anyway.

However, this could be a perfect time to add a "See what my character would look like in this" button oñto the AH window. Then, it would be pretty awesome.

IMO bound status means the person walking around in an Abbot Shroud or Red Dragon Scale actually got those items on at least one character.

This will help energize players to run content that might have ignored for years, and actually give a small increase to LFM's for diverse content.

Some amount of exclusivity is a good thing...

Making them unbound on the other hand means everyone looks the same in a few months.

I know it sounds like an elitist argument but being able to have SOME visual cue of a players newness or veteran-ness (hah) is desirable IMO.

If you have an old item that has one of the old single use cosmetic armor kits, and you use a mirror of glamouring on it, will it create a cosmetic armor out of the the old kit, or just the armor to which it was applied? Basically, I'm asking if this is a way to get those old kits (no longer available) back in the game as BtA cosmetics. If this isn't the case yet, can we make it happen?

About this. I have one of the old armor skins, unused, in the bank. Will I be able to copy this look from the skin?

Reeze

I have been testing this on the live servers just after release. Here are some limitations - BE AWARE!

You cannot make a new transferable cosmetic from an older static cosmetic that you had. Remember that wonderful static cosmetic that you paid turbine points for sitting on an out of level
piece of armor that you have to TR to wear again. The one's that they now no longer offer? Like some of the sworls, spirals, the spider armors, etc.. Well your still SOL. If an armor already has
a static cosmetic, the mirror won't recognize the armor at all.

They are also race prohibited! Wanna put Shadarkai cosmetic image armor on a Drow, Yes you can make it, yes you can transfer it, but sorry you cannot put it on :(

The same is true of the Herioc's. If your not Heroic, then no cosplay for you.

The long and short is that any prohibitions on the originals as far as wearing them carry forward with the cosmetics. WHY!

Here's a money maker - Get rid of the static cosmetic removal tool and replace it with a remove and re-use tool. Like the Jewel for augments. Plenty of people will buy into that one.

It is an excellent first step. Sadly the vast majority of DDO armor is awful if not hideous. There are some that are cool and a very few of them are really cool. So its a start, particularly
if your alts have a "look" that you wish to continue.

This is still an area that needs a lot of work. The Mirror is a start and I'm thankful for that.

On docents not working, I should have read the notes... sucks.

On glamering random armors - Results may vary - which is pointless, if you don't get the armor you saw when you tried it out, that's no good. I've blown 3 mirrors trying to get the look off a particular random, tried on different toon also.

On glamering certain named items, if they used the random gen system to determine it's look in the first place, results also may vary on the color. Ex: Bloodplate is bright red, glamered cosmetic bloodplate is light flesh color... Not bad, but not what I wanted.

It looks like there is an Armor Appearance Kit on the Cormyrian Red Dragonplate, which is what is preventing you from being able to use the Mirror of Glamering on it. You'll need to get an Armor Appearance Kit remover, if you want to Glamer the core look of the Dragonplate. It is not currently possible to make a cosmetic out of the old Armor Appearance Kits, sorry. I did check, though, and was able to make the Dragonplate on my admin:

I prepped for this and kept an eye on random loot gen robes (and other armors) and built a nice clutch to glamor from. Also, I dug out my old armors you don't see anymore and centralized them on a bank toon. I was surprised to see the old and new random loots looked allot nicer that some of my named.

The following changes were made after today's hotfix:




Corrected an issue that was causing some cosmetic armors to not display properly after being created with a Mirror of Glamering. NOTE: This fix is not able to be made retroactive, so players who have created a cosmetic armor with the Mirror of Glamering and are not satisfied with the resulting cosmetic should contact support either in-game or through support.turbine.com.





Fixed an issue that could cause the absolute minimum level of an armor to be retained when making a cosmetic armor using the Mirror of Glamering. This will retroactively fix cosmetic armors with minimum levels.

If you had purchased one of the old single use armor appearence kits and still have it in your inventory,
you can still apply it.
You cannot glamour it by itself.
If its already been deployed on an armor, you still cannot glamour it.
Any armor with an older appearence kit cannot even be put in the window - it spits it out.
(you do not lose the the mirror in any of these cases)
The race limitation is still in place, no cosplay on racially limited armors - Shadarki, heroics, etc..

Since this is a higher traffic area I thought I'd drop the idea here... If the crew ever gets around to implementing individual sprite effects for weapons the old celestia rainbow fountain would earn my $$$. I've made thunderforged orb and shuriken on my caster just because it looks like shadow hands. Effects like these keep F2P games going, I know team fortress 2 makes weapons fairly easy to get but their ingame store is practically all pure cosmetics. I blew through 4k AS just getting 2 thinking caps, I'm sure I'm not the only one who likes playing dress up with their GI Joes. Any plans on more effect types after weapons? Dye kits? Customizable kits (build your own look with parts)? Looking forward to seeing this wing of DDO given more attention. The armor kits have been super fun, I have a reason to loot bad greens now :p

Just tried playing with the Mirror of Glamering and... uh... the new thingie, the weapon aura thingie. Dunno of it's because they're named or what, but I tried to glamer Celestia and a Star of Day (the one you can get with cleric comms), and the aura thingie did *not* remove the aura... quite. The Star of Day I used was a flamey one; the glamered and aura-removed gave it a PG/Holy aura. With Celestia it just did nothing at all. I tried changing the effect for Celestia to a few different kinds, but nothin' doin'. I used the same base glamer, don't know if that had anything to do with it.

Didn't try beyond that because I was too annoyed and sleepy to continue.

To try to make more clear:

-Glamered Star of Day (one with Flaming Burst/Fiery Detonation)
--Aura Thingie'd Glamered Star of Day: "Remove": Now has a PG/Holy look.
(EDIT: Actually, it might be a light effect from Brilliance? Not sure if there's a difference. Looked like PG/Holy but I didn't give it a great gander beyond "dangit, still has an aura!")

-Glamered Celestia (Base out of the box; no upgrades)
--Aura Thingie'd Glamered Celestia: "Remove" - no difference.
--Re-Aura Thingie'd *same* Glamered Celestia: "Shadow" - no difference
--Re-Re-Aura Thingie'd *same* Glamered Celestia: "Acid" - no difference.

Only thing I can think of is a shield (which is probably not considered an armor by the game at all, at least not like normal armors are, but in my head I see shields as both weapons and armor at the same time).
Namely, the Shield of the Azure Valkyrie from Part 1 of The Shroud. Which is a shame, as I'd love to be able to make a cosmetic of that. ^_^

The shroud version looks a little purple/blue but that is I think the colored lighting in that area. and the size difference could just be warforged holding it instead of the elf in the first pic.

You know what would be really nice and worth paying for? A glamer that hues things different shades. or lets you scroll through textures to apply different colors below the items bump map or reflection map.

$$$ for armor/shield dye sure. Doubt they could get it to work based on my understanding of how armor is put together though.

I can confirm: Aura glamoring does not work on Celestia. However other weapons I have worked fine with it.

Glamer "Arondi" Necro shield of ledgend turn in, as far as I can tell they are the same, I don't recall the Azure Valkyrie shield being a different color. Though I do kind of remember them being slightly different sizes.

Thanks, I had totally missed that one (was mostly looking at tower shields). And I agree about the hues. I am all for more options for customizing ones looks. :)

Not sure if this was ever mentioned before, but greatswords and falchions are not the same kind of weapon like greataxes and mauls.

Because of the grip positioning on maul/axe vs greatsword/falchion it heavily distorts the cosmetic weapons look and animation when being swung.

falchion/greatsword cosmetic needs to when equipping an axe/maul use the "your cosmetic weapons do not match your equipped weapons, normal weapons will be shown". I just tested it and if you equip a cosmetic axe then equip a greatsword the message does show. However if you equip a greatsword and a cosmetic maul, a distortion happens instead of the message.

I didn't go to Lama this time and so didn't realize until u24 hit live what was going on with the mirror and weapons.

I was really looking forward to the chance to change the appearance of a couple of my long swords. I really don't like the way the Timeblade and the Mournelode long sword look. It's not even the fantasy styling, it's just that they are too big for the weapon type which makes them look goofy, imo. And they look like plastic, while other long swords do actual have the appearance of metal.

Anyway, what I was hoping for was something that functioned the way that the old armor appearance kits used to work, not a blanket cosmetic.

I don't know about anyone else, but I actually use the sword's appearance as a crutch. It gives me an easy way to tell if I'm correctly armed.

For example, I carry the timeblade around on one of my characters during his entire lifetime(s). It's his featherfall item. However, after level 8 I really don't want to use it in combat. I just have better weapons at that point. My plan was to alter it's appearance to that of a TF long sword, which also has a distinctive if much more pleasant, imo, look.

So, is there any chance of something like that coming to pass?

A bit disappointed with the new weapon glamering thing.

First up - what's the point of having a glamered weapon when it has to match the weapon in your hand. If I can glamer full plate for my outfit wearing wizard and look kick arse, why can't I appear to be holding a staff if I have a sceptre/orb combo? Cosmetic right ? It's like saying to someone you can only wear this long hair wig IF you already have long hair.

Secondly - I glamered my nether orb and added some flame and nada. zip. nothing different. So I burnt another 95 points and tried electric. Still nothing different. 435 points all up (mirror + 2 aura) for nothing.

Certainly sucked some points out of me with all of this (because it's poorly explained). Love the armour cosmetics; works great, but weapon wise .. pointless really (no TP pun intended).

My guess would be that the restriction has to do with the different attack animation the different styles have. It would have to use the attack style of the glamoured item, which would lead to people glamouring whichever attack style was the fastest, while using whichever weapon gives the most damage per hit.

Thanks for the preview screenshots! Also there are some bugs to note:
1. The auras do not always appear. I don't mind shadow not always being around my swords, but at times it is just the blade animations.
2. You cannot use bulk amounts. It will consume all the glamour aura items on one cosmetic item.

1. I found this out as well, I can still see my aura's, but others see me swinging with out a weapon.
Once I un-equip and re-equip the weapon it re-establishes visual for other players..

This bug could be a feature if Dev's rework this.. I would love to have this option so I didn't have to see other peoples cuti-pets in quests/raids.


2. Didn't have this issue.. fortunately for me.. I had a stack of 10 Aura's that I was applying to the glamered weapons I hadn't done yet.

Few things:

You can use glammered 2hf swords when you have a maul equipped which results in very weird animation.
You can use glammered 2hf mauls when you have a sword equipped which reults in very wierd animation.
You can not use a glammered 2hf maul when you have an axe equipped which is very weird as axe and maul have matching animation.

Some weapons are not compatible with the glammered weapon effects (which is very annoying). Terror is an example.

Could we finally see the collector's edition Shadar-Kai outfit be enabled for other races? At the very least allow regular humans to use it, as there is little visual difference between the skeleton for Shadar-Kai and Human. (Perhaps there are some physicals differences I'm missing.)

I know I'm personally still a bit annoyed over that last minute change that made my new cosmetic useless except for one single race. I know it'd take some art assets, but please allow us to use it on every race like the Wilderness armor from MoTU.

The vendor in Rest Stop sells a torch that's needed to open the secret door.
It's also a weapon that drops on leaving the adventure.
I did a glamor on it.

Sadly the glamor also drops on leaving the adventure?

If you want a torch you can glamor the Drowned Priest Club from epic Three Barrel Cove.

Yes, thx. I'll set out to acquire it sometime and glam it once I have enough tp.

Was more a question to see if anybody else had experienced such a thing or if the defs are aware of glamored "drops on exit" items.
I doubt anybody wants to spend their tp just to see it vanish into thin air on leaving the quest.
