More info coming from someone who knows more than I do, but I just wanted to clarify that losing this functionality was in fact not intended.

Good to hear. I don’t expect unequipable armor types to look perfect or even passable with my equipable armor type, but it esd nice to at least see what it looked like so I could decide whether I wanted to vendor it or save it for another character.

Thank you for clearing that up! I hope the preview functionality will be as it was again soon. Now that we are on the matter of clearing up, there is this other huge thread on the forums that could use a reply and put a lot of people’s minds at ease And I’m not trying to be hateful or sarcastic about it

Thank you for letting us know!

May I suggest you add a link to this topic in the moderator post that closed the thread below? I bet that will avoid a lot of rage from people who feel disheartened by the original statements.

Oh. Nice. Good to know. I’ll inform my guildies since they avoid the forums.

Now fix it!

Thanks Jon. It seemed a little absurd to say “viewing these caused graphic glitches” when in fact the ‘glitches’ were no more severe generally than those on armor we’re SUPPOSED to be wearing (like clipping*).

*although in point of fact the combination of preview being weapons-stowed and that pretty much all medium armor is trenchcoats means that clipping glitches are the only way you CAN preview daggers, pistols, and wands that are otherwise obscured for medium armor wearers.

I’m so happy. I really loved being able to cross-preview armor.

thank you A-Net for reading your forums and listening to your player base, it has become a rare thing these days. and thank you for your response dev.

That which does not kill me, has made a tactical error.
