You are seeing the same pieces because

A) All are crafted

B) Since its crafted, its either, the easiest, or the best stats and returns

C) Not everyone is high enough to make other clothes. And the other clothes, at times need other disciplines too. And not many people do it.

He might mean something like...

Bronze Haub
Iron Haub

etc...

Same basic armor, just new material.

You'll see that in most MMOs, especially in the lower levels.

It was common in FFXI for awhile. **** before CoP, gear was better much the same just different materials before you started to get your artifact armor at 50.

It's too bad they didn't implement that system into the game itself, rather than only on the developer's end. Where by using different materials and decorations, you could completely customize a set of gear. That would have been very cool.

A basic recipe, which you can then alter the colors by using dyes, different metals, etc. Then the decorations, like a crest on armor, or a gem, or an extra flair on the shoulders (as seen in that video) could act like bonuses. So while the decorations would not be necessary for the item's creation, they would have some benefit and would further customization.

If they had done that this game would easily have had the best crafting system out there.

That would have also worked very well with a de-synth system, where you take apart an item and recover it's components. De-synth a bronze chestpiece, replace the bronze bits with iron, re-synth it into an upgraded item and smelt the bronze back into ingots.

When the game was first being announced and talked about (pre-Beta) I could swear they said you would be able to customize your gear just like that. Either I'm thinking about another game (likely), it was basic SE speak meaning something different than what it said (most likely), or they'll implement it at a later date (a pipe dream).
