Vanity equipment slotsFollow

Didn't I read something a while back about SE implementing a vanity option similar to WoW's transmog feature? Basically you will be able to make the gear you are wearing look like another piece of gear that you find more aesthetically pleasing.

Does anyone know when we might expect this? One thing I hate about MMOs is that you get an iconic set of gear (in FF its your AF job armor) after wearing lackluster gear sets while leveling up, only to immediately replace it with better gear statwise that looks like your old crappy generic level 20 gear. Why can't we keep our job's specific iconic aesthetics when attaining better gear?

Someone mentioned relic gear/upgraded AF. Is that in the game now, and if so how long after attaining it do you replace it with ****-ugly gear again (aka Darklight)?

As far as I have seen, you wont be able to change the appearance of gear, you will just have vanity slots that override what is being displayed. As for projected release, who knows at this point. I think they are probably more focused on adding content, housing and PvP, at this point, but I wouldn't take it off the table to see it sometime in the near future.

EDIT: Oh and I feel ya. Trying going through the whole game with either a steak knife or a paddle with razors sticking out of it. Would have been nice if, when I had finally gotten that longsword, it wouldn't have been immediately replaced with another steak knife. :|

Can't wait. Dcuo is amazing for this. They call it 'styles' and they are collectibles that can be found everywhere and traded. A lot of it wasn't even gear just hairstyles and glowing skin Etc. seeing how skimpy the character creation in xiv is this is badly needed ASAP.

I'd like to know this, as well.

Because I haven't seen anyone walking around in AF+1 yet, it might indicate that there's something in the game that takes longer than a few weeks to achieve, in which case I'd be excited to have a long-term goal.

Guess we won't know for sure until they officially announce it, but it would be really nice... As for vanity slots they should give us several.
