Its odd to say but I am really loving the gear in this game. I'm only level 17 Gladiator and I already feel bad ***. Working with my friends to make them gear and myself gear gives pride to when you play your character. I cant wait to what they have in store for us around level 40-50. I am sure every single player will look really different and each have a unique bad *** feel to them.
Looking at my friends in their leather-craft/cloth-working gear is just awesome. No matter what class you play the gear is great.
I want to see what the Bronze Scale stuff looks like. I am sure the lancer classes are soaking that gear up. :D
