War on Fashionhammer, loss of stunty head weapon skin?

Post#1 » Fri Jun 21, 2024 5:56 pm

A lot of us players grind out oddball quests, PQ influence, event influence to obtain random appearances to stand out from the crowd, a lot of us would say "fashion hammer" is the true end game.
My question is why is there a seeming war on random skins?
Two examples, there was a nurgle-ish horned helm from an epic quest, a lot of chosen went and got it and then randomly was changed to a standard skin. The second example was the Stunty Head skin obtained at the opening of K8P. Even the NPC was removed, so it wasn't "just an oversight", this was something actively done. Why was it removed? The appearance offended someone? We've trophies abound with random body parts on destro side. It "confused someone what they're fighting"? A weak excuse. If you see a tank with a weapon in each hand, you know he's running SnB, you see a melee dps with two weapons, dual wield. WP/DoK? ok, i'll play along. Only one that would "really" be affected would be Dok since the dual wield everything. But you can still appearance swap cups for swords so kinda doesn't hold water either.

Why was the stunty head and nurgle helmet removed? I'm sure there's others, but those are just the two I know of off the top of my head.

yeah I really wanna know what the devs long term position is on this. it's like they put a ton of work into completely revamping all of the regular pve and building these new cities but then simultaneously removed all of the reason to ever bother exploring them. i've ran a few characters through the chapters since the biggest changes and its completely homogenised and standardized now, there's literally nothing to find other than green gear with regular appearances and a bit of gold

Stunty head is going back in after next patch.

The Nurgle helm is not, wasn't supposed to be added in the game to begin with.

This. I've done plenty of pq's and quest chains in the hopes of finding some cool looking items. Going around Karaz a Karaz seeing so many cool items unavailable to players makes this dawi sad.

I know the game is focused on RVR, but there's a really cool world outside the lakes that would get some love from more players if you could obtain unique cosmetics by doing quest, killing bosses, etc.

Also remove the Nurgle themed cloak and the rusted bells the devs gifted us. And the kieslev hat. and the pirate hats for orcs, only bloody sun boyz after all.

By the grandfather, I wish I could wear more Nurgle-looking items.

it's even the littlest thing, like that pick that chosen/mara used to be able to get in ch1. would be fun to use that as an appearance for a slaan or khorne themed char now that appearance is not restricted by weapon type but nope - it's just a generic green axe now

lmao I haven't played properly for like 1-2 years.

So is it a Nurgle helmet (or a "plague" helmet close enough to be a Nurgle helmet) or not? As for the dyes: purple/pink can stay, as can the generic metals and white/black :P

I'll tell you now, there are plenty of ROR capes I would like to see deleted from the game, for reasons varying from lore-appropriateness and just overall art design/quality :(
