I've been reading through a lot of the articles posted and most of the info on this is specific to weapons. Holding a staff? Congrats, you're a mage. Holding a sword? Congrats, you're a fighter...

But has anything discussed actual armor or other pieces of equipment? How is that going to work? And will there be plenty of variety? It'd be a shame to improve the character customization only to have every Pugilist look like every other Pugilist and every Archer look like every other Archer, and so on.

And speaking of Pugilist and Archer...

Is there a compilation somewhere of what "classes" we know are out so far?

Thank you for the list of classes.

I read the thread about the Magitek before. I was talking more along the lines of what you are actually seeing so far on the characters though. Like the hooded outfit on the Pugilist. Is that just what you look like when you equip a weapon that makes you a Pugilist? or will there be a variety of armor that a Pugilist can utilize? Thats the sort of thing I've been wondering but haven't seen anything about. Everything is all "equip this weapon and this happens."

All jobs will have certain pieces of gear that are just better than anything else for that slot. As the game ages more and more people will acquire these pieces and everyone will look the same. The only way around it is to let us customize the look of the equipment while leaving the stats alone.

I'd like to say your appearance will change based on the level/skill of the weapon you choose. So let's say you have an Onion Sword to start, you'll look like a peasant smiting rarabs. Then get a mid level sword and you put on a shield and some tougher armor, and so on.
Hopefully all endgame warriors won't look alike in the same gear, but you might see your twin running around if you happen to be the same skill level and have the same sword equipped.

Just a thought...
