I was looking over the new screenshots and for some reason they brought to mind one of the things that has bugged me for a long time since I left UO, most MMOs lack real varriety on clothing.
In Skill based games there seems to be a much better selection of differant clothes and armors, sometimes allowing you to walk around town and actualy look like you might be a native. On the otherhand most Level based games seem to take up the opposite aproach, makeing you dress like everyone else in your level/job(class) range or be ignored for being under equiped.
These aren't all iron clad certainties but I am hopeing that XIV will have a much wider range of street clothes for vanity and RP use as well as armor that lets me come up with something that I like and maybe use it without feeling like I might drag people down.
But it IS fun to play dress up sometimes ;P
