    I'm still trying to figure out when I missed the update where all the female hires started dressing like strippers (seriously, when did the skins change? They were still wearing clothes a year ago).

    As the game aged, characters are becoming more self sufficient and the need for hires has become less.

    The male hires have become airship builders at the House Orien fleetyards. The females have started turning tricks. It's a harsh world...

    I just wish that, on all races, the outfit looked more like real clothing and less like a tuxedo tee-shirt kinda deal. Right now it looks like footie pajamas painted to look like pirate-ish.

    It is worth noting for Bladeforged that this pirate glamour is some powerful glamouring-magic, and does cover up any spikey protrusions that may have been sticking out of your shoulders.
    Ya know, the more I look at it, the more it look like you mixed up the genders for these outfit. take the male V-cut, it's not linear at all, and the up-curve seem like it was meant for breasts. And a male wearing a loose V cut should have more of a U-ish looking cut instead of that almost Y looking cut.

    anyone else bothered by the V cut odd look on the male?

    Well I wish like armor, that it was separate from the character model. This way you could have a collar that had dimension, instead of a smear of texture on your clavicle.

    Hopefully sometime down the road we get more cosmetics worth purchase, and at 1/10th the cost in tp. Or at least 1/5th.

    EeeeeeeEEEeeegGAD! No thanks!!

    I'm so tired of "Skin tight" Cosmetics... It's like a naked WF with Body Paint.

    (And that goes for the Fleshy Model... Don't know why I had high hopes of it being different on WF/BF)

    That's where you're getting confused.
    Note I said 'sailor'.
    If you're coming into swashbuckling from the other side [and in THOSE clean, trimmed clothes? Yeah, not coming in from the rough and tumble side] then you still hold to certain proprieties- such as corsets.

    Also note that corsets such as the one displayed actually CAN function as armor. The leather in the front is stiffened and acts as an abdominal guard.
    I mean, it's not plate mail (!)-
    But it is functional, and does fit with the style.

    In other words, there is at least one scenario where the design does make perfect sense for a swashbuckling toon.

    Whether that scenario is one that fits any of your swashbuckling plans is another matter-

    Aye, Dread Pirate HAL?

    When I heard about a new pirate outfit, I thought "Sweet! Something flamboyant to go under that green hat with the feather!"

    ...then I saw the pics...

    I realize not all pirates looked like Jack Sparrow or Capitan Hook, but this is a fantasy land game. Who wants to look like the deck hand? I suppose I should actually thank Turbine for yet again encouraging me to keep my money.
    Now excuse me while I wander off to arm myself with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and hunker down behind my Armored Beer Refrigerator, while I have the UFO's take control of the Congresional Wives with the help of the International Cocaine Smugglers and the Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow - btw, do you have change for 10 million population?

    The hilariously sad part is that once again, they already had some great looking pirate outfits on NPCs that people would spend money on. Probably puts the total list to the triple digits if it wasn't there already. I feel like I should compile a list with pictures and make that into its own thread.

    Seriously lets do it; top 100 NPC's/Mobs that look cooler than players if turbine wont voluntarily make the cosmetics better perhaps they can be shamed into it.

    You know that bug where you hit the gnolls and their pants fall off? Guess they tested it on hires first...

    I mean hell, if you want, we have people in game who are 3D Max Designers and other tools, let us submit our designs around your templates. Get the players involve, open up a little. Player involvement is like the #1 rule in a MMO. Look at all the addons people do for WoW and ESO, huge communities. There is no technical reason not to do it here.

    Non-DDO examples.

    Oh, yeah. If cosmetics look more like these non-DDO examples, I'd buy a lot more of them. As they are now, 95% of the cosmetics are no improvement over random loot gen armor.

    So there are people in game who are 3D Max Designers and there are people who are other tools? What, if I don't use 3D Max, I'm a tool? :P
