    Default Best Looking Armour in the Game (Excluding Armour Kits)

    Every character I play, are characters I made for roleplaying.
    One thing I enjoy doing, is finding cool looking armour for them to wear.
    Now buying every piece under 200p and trying them on, can be fund, but the generic skins just don't really cut it.
    And armour appearance kits are way too much TP, and really not all that great.
    So I am looking for the best looking armour in the game.
    Mostly looking for named pieces. Something I could buy on the AH or go farm myself.
    Please post a picture of it, equipped on a character. (Either your own screenie, or from the DDOwiki or elsewhere)
    Male or female, and can be any armour type, as I have a few characters.

    It's not really a contest, and I'm not looking for 100 people to post the same pic, to show that one is the best. I am just wanting to see cool looking pieces, without having to try to find them myself.
    Thanks all for the help!

    I'm quite partial to Drow Hunter's Armor

    I have a loot-gen leather armor that looks like that, which I'd love to be able to make my Bard's DT Robe look like.

    I realize I'm probably alone on this, but I love the look of the Elocator's Habiliment. It's especially cool looking on a half orc. I can't wear it often, because it breaks my evasion, but it looks particularly nice on my main character -- he's a half orc with big tusks and hair dyed green color that matches one of the Habiliment colors. Sometimes I wear it when running around town just for the absurdity.

    I really liked the Breasplate of Vol on my exploiter. Was sorry I had to give it up at 14 for raiments.
    The picture here is on a dwarf so doesn't look all that nice.

    it is a shame that armor kits don't work like they do in LOTRO. Some of the scale armors in this game look really really cool, but are not useful armors to wear

    Jinx's Vexation is +5 mfp, available on the AH and very, very good looking -

    http://ddowiki.com/page/File:Item_Ji...appearance.jpg

    Breastplate of Destruction used to have a unique skin and was very easy to get after a few Hound runs. They ruined it however when it went back to it's old look after one of the updates

    http://ddowiki.com/page/File:Item_Br...estruction.jpg

    Black Dragon Scale (not plate/leather) looks very good also, but will be grindy to get (but not so much as blue). It has a useful Heal clicky too. I could only find picture of blue though, black looks much better -

    I really enjoy this robe and it's actually a pretty good item. I'm glad it's amongst the best for my build and yet looks very nice: Regalia of the Phoenix
    You can get it in Mindsunder (Inspired Quarter adventure pack). Not very hard to obtain.

    Quicksilver Cassok is another robe that I like. Is fairly easy to obtain as well, comes as end reward for running Cult of Six (Sorrowdusk Isle adventure pack).

    Also any of the Dragonscale armors (Black, Blue, White, Red) (Robe, Light, Medium, Heavy) look very nice in my opinion. But they are a bit grindy to get, you'll need Gianthold adventure pack, and the Black, Blue and White cost 25 scales of the respective color (which you have a chance of getting a single scale by killing the respective dragon in Gianthold Tor).

    I am lazy and not about to model all the armour I have... clothing and armour depends on the characters physical appearance... hair colour, eye colour, complexion. What looks great on one toon does not look great on another – there are a lot of factors outside the clothings design.

    Among my favourites

    Robes:

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...ionistRobe.jpg

    ... is so pretty and soft looking in it's pastels and the colours chosen bring out 'bout any characters physical appearance ... eyes, hair... this is one robe looks great on any toon.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...bolistRobe.jpg

    ... the deep crimson and cinnabar make this great for characters with dark hair and deeply coloured eyes... greyed, blondes, stawberry and red heads not so flattering.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...hoenixRobe.jpg

    ... Bright reds burnt oranges and yellows is also a fave yet again see note on Diabolist robe above...

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...ragonScale.jpg

    ... Is by far one of the most easiest adjusting robes nearly everyone look great in white and this robe in design of it's mix of pale off whites to bright looks fantastic.

    Light:

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...tedLeather.jpg

    ... again like white – black, greys and white, slim tapper a winner all around especially where darker hair colours are concerned.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...elvingsuit.jpg

    ... I cannot believe people left this one out... the intricate patterns almost paisley in nature and fine detail is classy and astute.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...DemonScale.jpg

    ... I love the colours here and the design slimming tapper great, am partial to shades of greens and this one always been a personal fave although would be nice to wear a pair of boots rather then two different ones.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...Conviction.jpg

    ... good patterns and nicely fit between beau and baby blue over grey this chain be one of my favourites. Plus is skirted.

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...esofSurety.jpg

    ... Pale green and summer bronze a great piece of clothing and much like Chain of Conviction skirted,

    Medium:

    http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...DemonChain.jpg

    If it did not have the bloody retro lookin' leg warmers... this would be a great looking outfit, still is but I feel I should be going to jazzercise. But Maralith chain is the best.

    .... would be the bomb and all the rest of medium named armour is just blah or make me yeck... even Elocator's Habiliment looks like a keliedescope threw up just too far out even though am partial to skirts what can I say I'm feminine

    Heavy:

    Am tired of sorting through banks spaces break out outfits but outside Epic red scale very few heavy named armour look any good ... old style bloodplate, jynx vexation long with tourney are the only things just not plain ugly.
