I have had this ideal for a while...And im sure alot of us have though about it here and there.. But how cool would it be? (see below)
Basically, you take what turbine has down with the goggles, and take it much farther. here is what i'd personally would like to see, i knwo it would be a bit of a pain for turbine to implement, but over all i think we all would enjoy the verity it would give us for the looks of our toons.
I would like to see more of our equipment being available to be seen on our charaters. I.e. our Cloaks, Bracers, Rings, necklaces etc... Of corse each being able to be viewed would depend on your equipment. For an example, you can't see ones neck in fullplate! but if your a female in one of them skimpy little numbers from the ddo store, you can!
But i would liek to see it go even farther then that. What i would really love to see is weapons holstered. for an example how this could look.. If you can imagin and duel wielding tempest ranger, or kensai fighter with duel GS weapons (Or whatever). while they are in the sheath mode they are on your back in the a-typical X pattern, or the classic duel sheaths on either side on the charaters belt. We can go on to imagin your favorite barb with his Esos strapped to his back, or the H-orc with his maul. Rangers with their bows and quivers, stalwerts with their weapon and shields strapped to their backs.. etc..
I can see the interphase being on the charater sheet next to your weapons slot (1 icon or something) that leads you to a selection on "where" the weapons will be sheathed, (i.e., side or back) and "what type" of sheathing (i.e. the classic leather sheath, or the more hip looking steel bracket that your weapon hooks onto or slides in, that allows for the whole weapon to be seen viewed.
Over all i think it would give the users a more rich charater experience, and give us more of a uniqueness to each of our charaters. This would keep us away from what happend back in U7 or so, when just about everyone was running around in DT and minos! (ahh the good ol days yes?) Personally i think all of the above, if it was implamented would just rock.
Two other things i would liek to see, 1 of which is a bit off topic, is for turbine to fix the Wizards Palemaster Lich's Glowing Eye's issue, that the only way it seems to look correct is if you take your camera view to the front of the charater, and down as if you where checking for buggers in their nose. that is about the only time you can actually "see" the flaming eye effect as i almost should be. would be nice if after 4+ years they fix that..
Second one, you know you want to.... turbine... yes you! You know us wizards... We want our Classic D&D Wizard Pointy Hats!!!!!!!! I personal would expect to see these in the DDo store as a cosmetic helm cover, and funtion like the ninja mask. (i.e. dosn't replace your actual helm like the straw hats do, but only gives your current heml the apperance of thus said ninja mask) but in this case a point wizard hat.. Prefered colors are Red, Blue, Black, Leatherish brown (liek elmisters, but taller by a few inches), green maybe? color choices are endless but the basics area must.
Anyways, just something i would liek to see.
