I have a few questions that other might have. For one is, I love to mix and match town clothes. I seriously hope we can still do this as I own most of them. Next, will these mix and match town clothes looks be able to be applied to armor now? Which would be awesome!

If you noticed in the wardrobe article, there is a character dressed in the wintersday costume holding the legendary rifle ( I think ). This leads me to hope that maybe…JUST MAYBE…costumes will also be wearable in combat?

If this is so, it would be so awesome! I might finally have a reason to buy costumes now!

It says so explicitly:
Outfits will replace the look of equipped armors, are equipped in a separate appearance slot.

The downside is that it is all or nothing.

Is it confirmed that its all-or-nothing? The way I’m reading that is there will be a separate appearance slot you can move your Town Clothes into and it overrides the armor from that slot.

What’s a guy gotta do to wear his glasses with his Heritage armor?

Look at the screenshot of the Hero panel under Account Wardrobe: The Basics.

You can see an outfit slot to the right of the helmet slot. But only one. So I don’t know if you will still be able to combine, say, a tophat with the fancy winter clothes.

Its sounds like gem store skins are just one time cost of 1 charges after then they can be reused.

There is no transmutation charge to change outfits or toggle it on and off.
Transmutation charges are for applying new skins to specific armor pieces, same as now.

Yes outfits are all or nothing.
Yes wearable in combat. There will be no non-combat equipment anymore, unless you count tonics.

I’m really interested in this too. I have several characters with great town cloth looks, which are put together from different pieces and I definitely don’t want to lose those looks!

Does this mean that I can’t hide my fancy winter outfit hat and gloves anymore, or wear the reading glasses or fuzzy quaggan hat or any other headwear with the rest of the outfit? That’s just absolutely ridiculous, because I hate the fancy winter hat and it makes my character completely bald.

NOW I wish I’d bought some of those great looking town clothes back in the day. Never cared before because standing around town doing nothing in a snazzy outfit is boring. But being able to rock a Mad King Thorn outfit in combat is hella awesome.

Please bring back some of the old town clothes to the gem store so we can buy them (more revenue!!) for in-combat use! You’ll have plenty of people buying the King Thorn and Wintersday outfits. Guaranteed!

Thanks for the clarification, Curtis!

I, and apparently many others here by the posts, was taking the wardrobe panel to be like the costume panel in other games, where you set your look that overrides anything you happen to be wearing.

From your response, it looks like it’s just a way to transmute an entire outfit at once, which I didn’t pick up from the blog post. So if we want to switch back and forth between looks, we can carry around multiple sets of outfits that have been transmuted to the looks we want.

Am I understanding correctly?

Aside from the UI update and Town Clothing, in the old system, you transmuted to get a new look, loosing the old one. Now you can transmute any look as many as times you want as long as you have it collected. Thought it will still have the transmutation price.

All 3 of those pieces are no longer available.

How do I wear an Endless Tonic?

Remember, our experience with Tonics have been things like being a quaggan or the halo. Every time I zone, I have to fire up my halo again. Does that mean I’ll have 3 endless tonics that I have to carry in my bag for the vest, shorts and boots, and every time I zone, I’ll be naked, and have to put my clothes back on?

Why not convert everything that was ever available as something you can use?

Why were those pieces removed to begin with?

I see what they wrote, it’s cryptic, and doesn’t explain the ‘why’ of any of it. Why put the extra work into making some things tonics when they could just be added to the system? Is it because there is something philosophically or morally objectionable to those pieces?

None of it makes any sense.

If they work like the halo, and we can still have those pieces of clothing, I’d be happy enough. But my fear is they will be converted into the usual endless tonics: Quaggan, Halloween, Beast… which I don’t use nor plan to do.

That why I would prefer either to keep my clothes (please please please puppy eyes activated) or receive my gems (which I purchased with real money BTW) back and buy what I really want and I will use.

Also I don’t understand why outfits have to be “all or nothing”. Why can’t we separate them into different armor pieces, even if we are forced to use always that kind of pieces together, like Town Clothes forced us to do?

And what will happen with the old original town clothes? Are they going to disappear too?

You’d be happy if every time you zoned, you had to double-click on 3 tonics in your bag to, say, put a shirt, shorts and boots back on? :|

I actually run around the world, in many cases, in my town clothes, if I’m gathering, or taking a long walk to, say, Frostgorge. Going into combat knocks them off, but after that’s over, a quick bound ‘shift-z’ toggles my town clothes back on again and off I go.

With this new system, I’d have to ‘shift-z’, which would make me naked, and then double click on 3 items in my bag to put my clothes back on?

I’m going to miss my characters. It just keeps piling up and piling up, little things that just don’t make any sort of sense, and them not caring about us at all as they march ahead and make posts about collaboration and demand we treat them with respect.

Well they only have to treat them the same way as always, only allowing you to combine them with other pieces of town clothing. As if they were a 4th kind of armor. I don’t think it is so complicated (it is probably the way they treated them till now, I guess). So I doubt that’s the main problem

(Also there’s a lot of clipping with normal armor so what’s the matter with a bit more?)

No. But I’d be happier if they worked that way better than to lose them forever. My fear is they will become Quaggan, Cat, Halloween or Beast endless tonics. Even worse: we will get account bound ones and we will get them twice, so we won’t be able to get rid of them in the TP. Anything different from that will be way better.

Just to try and understand. As a roleplayer, right now I got three different coats in my inventory that I keep taking on and off for the different skins.
So if I were to switch between these three, can I still have three different coats in my inventory, or can I freely switch between these three skins on the same armour piece? Or is it there it will cost charges? Because I would be nice to be able to switch freely between skins, and not having to have 3 armours in my inventory.

What I’m thinking is that they wanted town clothes with town clothes only, so if you only used,say, a shirt – that meant that you didn’t wear anything else. Anet probably didn’t want naked people running around, and couldn’t be bothered to code the town clothes with actual armor, so they went with a compromise.

Just trying to explain a probable reason why individual clothes weren’t allowed.

It will cost you to put a different look on the SAME armour piece. So you still have to keep 3 pieces in your inventory. As do people who want to change stats, rather than looks.

I think that town clothes should not be all or nothing.

I love to use my Wintersday town clothes on my human male, but I really hate how the hat looks on him. I much prefer the coolio aviator sunglasses that he is currently wearing.
I would be very disappointed if he always had to wear that hat. x_x

I do like the Mad King’s outfit on my Norn, but I would also like to show his face while wearing it. I would also be very disappointed if he had to wear the pumpkin head all the time. :/

Both of these are important things to answer, in my opinion.

I typically dislike head-slot gear in MMOs, preferring my characters’ hair and face to most anything else. So if we’re forced to show a head-slot part of the clothing, that’s going to ruin town clothes for several of my characters.

Additionally, there are several skins that include just head-slot items, such as the sunglasses and various hats. Where do these items stand if the old town clothes system is being axed? How do they become part of the new system? Do folks who own them only have the option of swapping head-slot appearance and no longer have the ability to wear, say, the pirates outfit with aviators or the witch’s costume with Thorn’s pumpkin head, etc.?

Edit: No town clothes swap, just read that part. That’s sad. But…I guess I could have created a “4th” set of shirt, pants, boots and applied those 3 pieces to it and carried those around instead of tonics.

With this new system, I’d have to ‘shift-z’, which would make me naked, and then double click on 3 items in my bag to put my clothes back on?

I’m going to miss my characters. It just keeps piling up and piling up, little things that just don’t make any sort of sense, and them not caring about us at all as they march ahead and make posts about collaboration and demand we treat them with respect.

It’s the iPhone only available at AT&T. It’s awful.

3 double clicks being a hassle is beyond my comprehension as being a “hard task”.
