So I went and did the Belsavis quest with the dreadmasters today and noticed that their looks have been changed quite drastically.
I'm not sure if this was done in todays patch or not but I couldn't find a post about it so I figured I'd share. (Sorry for the crappy screen, it was all I managed to grab)
Previously the dreadmasters had a very distinct look, almost anime style. Not really sure why they needed these ugly gold things instead.
Yeah that's what I figure as well. Probably for visibility or something. Just think it's a bad idea to change them this late, specially when people already got used to (and liked) their old appearance.
This was done before todays patch. Did this questline 3 days ago and they had these new masks.
The difference between a SJW and an activist: An activist tries to get a ramp added to a building for easier wheelchair access. The SJW tries to get the stairs removed because they might offend people who can't use them.
The change makes sense if they will be updated as Operation bosses. As much as I liked their old look, it was just some of the best headgear available to players. Operation bosses need their own, unique look.
I think they are trying to distinguish them form looking like other players in PvP gear...because that is not really epic. I'm not fond of their new masks, kinda weird gold kabuki thing...but, we'll see what happens.
The story line and their attitudes are still awesome.
