    Oh I got those screens tagged! My sisters and I made a photo book so we can tag what dresses we were going to wear & see the patterns and dye options. And hopefully mix & match tops/boots. The vanity stuff is a huge draw for me/us.

    More seriously, I don't know why more games don't give players options. Surely, at least one developer would recognize big ass shoulderpads are not appealing to everyone. Rift has a wardrobe options but kinda limited and mostly ugly crap to choose from. Transmog in Warcraft is also sunk by the fact I can choose between Goat Horn Helmet and Demon Horn Helmet... wtf? (FU, Blizzard!)

    There is great potential in games that offer a wealth of vanity items. Vindictus/ROM/Perfect World/Aion have spectacular clothes/costumes and I blew enough on that vanity stuff to pay for Rift/WOW for 3 years over.

    Look at League of Legends... people buy champions with IP but drop $10-30 bucks on a yellow outfit for their champion.

    MORE OPTIONS!

    Vanity stuff is a really nice feature which more games should have. It also encourages Anet to make outfits that are more awesome than ones already in game to get people to buy them. In WoW a lot of people praised the transmogrifier because they didn't like the new sets that were being released.

    I've been following guild wars 2 for only a bit but I've managed to persuade several of my friends that they should keep their eye on it too, so I feel proud about that, I just can't decide what profession to go with, good job Anet by making all of them look really awesome!

    Options take time and money, when your team is just squeaking by to shit out a poor WoW clone you don't really have the time...or so it seems. Yet here we have ANet who is making the anti-WoW and can still manage to give us tons of customization. Thanks ANet!

    Its just seems kinda foolish to not give players lots of vanity options. There is great money and incentive in it for developers. Most costume pieces in another MMO I play sell for more IRL cash than the stat gear.

    The only reason I care about that +5 Sword of Awesome of Awesomeing is because I can't raid without it. But if I didn't need it and could still raid, I would be just as happy and wiling to chase after that +0 Sword of Fabulousness. And pay for it.

    This is true, I have a friend who's spent about $70 on skins in LoL and some others who've spent $20-$40. Though the same friend who spent $70 on skins in LoL actually complained that he MIGHT have to buy 3 character slots in GW2. If he does I'll rip into him for being a hypocrite considering one is cosmetic and the other provides gameplay for potentially thousands of hours.

    no, we are not all gonna wear the same clothes...

    we don't want to look the same, per se. just have our looks/clothes planned out & considering what pieces can be matched. don't know how to explain the idea simpler than that- planning is fun. its important stuff to our enjoyment, though i understand not everyone finds that stuff fun. its a major draw for me/us to the game however.

    think most people chase vanity items. and it usually takes more time to get vanity items than stat gear. it takes ages to get all your pets, achievements and mounts in warcraft. i only have to show up 2 nights a week for 3 hours to get full raid gear. so why continue to provide artificial stat gear to keep accessing new content?

    not sure why we have that old system for this long. gets tiresome. developers could be making so much more money off this stuff as well. a guy in china paid like 16k for a vanity sword...

    I'd like to a wider variety of item aesthetics as well, but not necessarily for me. While I'm a fan of the demon-horn-skull-helmet sort of thing (see WH40K Chaos Marines), it gets pretty dull when everyone looks the same way I do.

    haha, no disrespect ma', i was just making a joke that there are more of "you" (as in your sisters) out there. and believe me i know how people get about vanity items, i prefer them over stat items as they are optional and not a necessity...in some games. i may not pay irl cash for them or even farm then per say, but if i come across a reasonably easy to obtain one i won't shy away from it. i guess as i never play female toons i never really got into it.

    No offense taken. :P Just all 3 of us showing up with the same outfit would be the type of thing we are trying to avoid. Haha!

    am i the only who thought of all those teenage movies where girls that were supposed to be friends show up at an event wearing the same outfit, even though one of them knew that the other was going to be wearing it?

    haha, no doubt except that i always find a way to make my toons look good without a *cough*photo book*cough*. i would post some screenshots, but i am too lazy to upload.

    I certainly hope I can dress up my thief for a classic film noir look: work dress with a simple neck tie, trenchcoat (with collar popped?), fedora.

    Here's lookin at you, kid.

    No F-ing kidding. Took blizzard YEARS to give a half baked and VERY limited appearance tab that still has way too many restrictions.

    many asian mmos offer TONS of vanity and costume options. got used to that in all mmos after i left warcraft circa wrath. eq had wardrobe options as well. so i only was saddled with the profoundly ugly art style of warcraft for a few years. the concept not being able to swap out looks is [from my perspective] unusual.

    blows my mind transmog is a big deal when stuff like this is the norm for me:

    Will Guild Wars 2 actually let players choose any gear set they want? I know that there will be numerous gear sets at the max level with equal stats, but that's not quite the same thing as saying they can use any gear set. That's just saying they can use any of the 'approved' gear sets, a system that would be more restrictive than the current WoW system that you're knocking.

    Woo customization underwear? =/

    Other than the underwear, that didn't deal with wardrobe options at all. It just seemed to have a few sample outfits of what players can get in the game.

    GW2 will have transmutation stones, which you can buy for karma, that have this function.
