For the amount of time that went into this armor, I must say It sucks. Sorry. Apparently spikes make things look cool now.

I’d have been happier if they had just given us the base sets that you start out with when you make a new character. Rather than the 3 cactus suits we got.

At least the way the handled Stat changes and runes is good.

Thank the gods for transmutation charges. Gonna be making good use of those.

Which is why I stated…

“I’d have been happier if they had just given us the base sets that you start out with when you make a new character. Rather than the 3 cactus suits we got.”

Basically what I am saying is the appearance is what took them a long time. If they had just given us the base sets with legendary perks. I would be happy. Also since when is being disappointed with something the developers do a bad thing? Especially when I really enjoy the game that they make, and was really looking forward to Legendary armor.

Not some, majority.

The Armors look awful, I know it, you know it, Anet knows it, everyone knows it.

Medium armor is another trench coat when medium armor wardrobe is 96% trench coat. Where’s the diversity? People have stated they HATE trench coats, yet Anet keeps pumping them out.

So much for legendary, I’ll just transmute them. 2 years of awful, hideous crap.

Anet can’t eat into their outfit gem sales now. It’s bad enough that once people craft their favorite legendary weapons they stop going after Black Lion chest skins.

Has there been a survey since they released the images on whether the armors disappointed players? If not, how can you say the majority? Just because you dislike something doesn’t mean that your opinion is necessarily in the majority.

I agree with that.

I would have liked Anet to have done a Poll system for this gear instead of keeping us in the dark for so long, teasing? at it… I guess.

Player feed back on this before official release would have be awesome.

Maybe even have a design competition or something.

Medium armor is another trench coat when medium armor wardrobe is 96% trench coat. Where’s the diversity? People have stated they HATE trench coats, yet Anet keeps pumping them out.

People say they hate trench coats – Anet adds yet more trench coats
People say they hate required items locked behind failure of events – Anet adds more failure based rewards.
People want more dungeons and dungeon improvements – Anet abandons dungeons completely

Seeing the pattern yet?

Where are my gem sales? I want gem sales! Nerf EVERYTHING!

Pick a skin, any skin. 10% of people hate it, 10% love it (if not more of each). There’s literally no way to please everyone, some people are never pleased. All each of us can do is describe our own preferences.

Like other veterans, I have 1000s of skins unlocked and I really only like a tiny handful. ANet’s design team has a different aesthetic than I. They love skulls and spikes and nekkid armor, and all sorts of other things I dislike.

But that’s doesn’t mean the skins they do release are ‘bad’ — some of the designs are tremendous; they just aren’t ones I’d be caught dead in.

I’d be more inclined to say the majority either didn’t see your comments or didn’t feel like responding. Or, more likely, to say that determining a majority opinion requires more than casually surveying chat a few times.

Legendary armor images haven’t been out for years. If you’re referring to regular armor then it sure didn’t come off as that by posting in a thread about legendary armor and replying to a post about legendary armor.

I hear what you are saying and I totally agree. However you missed the point. I think I was pretty clear, but of course I make sense to my self.

What I was saying is they spent a lot of time working on the BEST possible gear in the game that we can obtain, and they managed to make it look worse that I could have imagined. That is unacceptable by my standards. If you are okay with that sort of development method than that’s you. This is The Guild Wars 2 Discussion Forums. Stating obvious things like “SUBJECTIVE LIKES AND DISLIKES” doesn’t add anything to the discussion. That is obvious.

What matters is how much time they put into something so important to the end game of Guild Wars 2 without getting appropriate player feedback on design.

Like I said they would have been better off just allowing us to infuse the legendary effect onto our current ascended gear, and then create some kind of special legendary infusions that we could place on our gear that give it different particle effects. These they could pump out on a regular basis, and I’m sure that would be better than what they gave us instead.

To be fair, outside of the animations, we already had a very good idea of what the base design of the armor was going to be. For example, we’ve known for a looooong time that the medium armor was going to have a trench coat design, that is not new information. We’ve also know that the light armor was going to have it’s cape feature.

At the end of the day, the base design we’ve known for a long time, and also known that they were going to change it.

“Manages to disappoint” implies that being impressive was almost a guaranteed thing. Considering how many people have been disappointed by legendaries already that was not an appropriate expectation.

Also, the next person who adds a trenchcoat to this game should be fired on the spot.

I like the heavy set and don’t know about the light, since it seems very dependent on the VFX with it.

IMO, I think they should have made the armor less about physical appearance and more about an VFX aura you get, maybe even choosing from a group of auras to display.. That along with full stat swapping would have made it work for me.

That would allow me to choose whatever skin I want/like with a cool aura and setting my stats for the situation. Doing it this way would increase the value of the armor in my mind and actually be something I’d want to work for. As it stands now, since the medium is so ugly (IMO) I wouldn’t waste my time.

The heavy set I like (tho I dont play a heavy profession main), I was disappointed in the light set as I was hoping for a balance of the profession themes (or even a dark theme) rather than crystals which seems a bit elementalist bias. Medium for me personally missed the mark completely, as I was hoping for a nature balance and not a coat. But this is just my opinion, and does not reflect the views of anyone else. We all have our preferences, and this time around some will be happy and others will not. Cannot be helped.

When AN makes a new gem store outfit, 90 percent of the time I couldnt care less b/c either I dont like it in general or it doesnt fit the theme of my characters. Light legenary armor doesnt fit my reaper at all so thats a pass, medium doesnt fit my druid at all so thats another pass. Better luck next round/expansion.

The light set is just a remade version of envoy armor: http://dulfy.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/gw2-envoy-armor-light-female.jpg

Look’s like a joker costume and not legendary at all. You really cheaped out on this Anet.

Those three armor sets are hideous looking. They must have had technical issues making the armor because they sure didn’t spend time in the art department.

Not all skins will appeal to everyone.

Well that’s obvious.

To be fair, so was your title. Of course legendary armor was going to disappoint some people.

Not some, majority.

The Armors look awful, I know it, you know it, Anet knows it, everyone knows it.

Medium armor is another trench coat when medium armor wardrobe is 96% trench coat. Where’s the diversity? People have stated they HATE trench coats, yet Anet keeps pumping them out.

So much for legendary, I’ll just transmute them. 2 years of awful, hideous crap.

Has there been a survey since they released the images on whether the armors disappointed players? If not, how can you say the majority? Just because you dislike something doesn’t mean that your opinion is necessarily in the majority.

Well years of me typing on map chat in populated areas about how ugly the armor is in this game and getting a lot of responses agreeing with me is why I say majority.

Still… The amount of people that actually play the game. When I was on last night it was over 70k online at that time. You would have had to talk with at least 36k people, and have that many agree with you. That is just online. That doesn’t account for the actual number of active players world wide on NA, and EU.

Is there some way of getting Legendary Armor outside of Raids that I am not aware of? It was my understanding that in order to get the Legendary Armor you had to do Raids, so if someone isn’t a part of the Raid community, their opinion on the matter is pretty invalid I’d say, as they aren’t ever going to work towards that goal of having Legendary Armor without having to do Raids, which they aren’t doing, like I said unless there is some way to obtain the armor without doing Raids that hasn’t been made aware to me or the players I’ve encountered in the game. I was of the understanding that to make the armor you had to do Raids.

As of now. Though I won’t be surprised when you can win a piece from BL Chests sometime in the future.

I am extremely happy with all of the legendary armors and cant wait to see them in game. Imo they nailed it. Sad to see how many dislike them tho.

Pick a skin, any skin. 10% of people hate it, 10% love it (if not more of each). There’s literally no way to please everyone, some people are never pleased. All each of us can do is describe our own preferences.

Like other veterans, I have 1000s of skins unlocked and I really only like a tiny handful. ANet’s design team has a different aesthetic than I. They love skulls and spikes and nekkid armor, and all sorts of other things I dislike.

But that’s doesn’t mean the skins they do release are ‘bad’ — some of the designs are tremendous; they just aren’t ones I’d be caught dead in.

The problem is that the majority of armor in this game has those elements highlighted in your post.
Skulls, spikes and other sharp tidbits are ok as variety – but it’s almost all we get. We don’t have more down to earth traditional skins.

Which in my book is a problem.

Also I feel like all 3 designs aren’t worth it for me. I’ll make the heavy and probably skin my T3 cultural human over it after a week or so.
