For weapon wear to be reflected in the actual ingame equipment. I'm not talking about an icon that informs me which piece of equipment is damaged, or anything like that (although of course we really do need that), I'm talking about dirt and scratches. Maybe actual tearing.

I don't think this is asking for much, this is a nextgen mmorpg!

You reminded me of the psp title coming "The 3rd Birthday" It is said that your clothes will tear in that game as enemies attack you. Looks interesting. :)

I know weapons get darker upon extended use. I don't think armor gets changed though.

I've seen alot of games do this, and it never really works out as cool as you'd think it would. Cars with "realistic damage" just get the same damaged skin applied to whatever hit it. Batman's realistic damaged suit from AA seemed to be to be just scripted in, and not reflecting what I actually did in game.

I'd rather see more general item skins in the game, than altering the current ones 2-3 times to show my durability

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Im with Kachi on this one....or if nothing else..sluttier armor for the ladies (preferably, but guys too i guess for those that might like that) like in the Korean games. At times this game just seems to high brow :)

I don't know about tools or armor but weapons do show physical signs of wear, albeit somewhat arbitrarily. from 50-100% durability the weapons (and shields) are shiny bright and new looking. under 50% they start to look almost tarnished... a little darker and then at... is it 15% for heavy wear? they are very dark.

Sounds like that Kabods online, where clothes degrade visually until only a tiny piece of clothing remain at the, *ahem* spot, you know, spot. I betcha most people by then would play with gears in red damage icon.

trust me its not as cool as it sounds. Elder scroll 4 tried some of this, and failed. Like dynamic picking up objects and like in the beta vid, showing us that the bones sparcked when draged along the all. (Never happened)
And trust me the less Ai the better. I read in Gi that a bug in the game aloud guards to kill a prisoner to eat his food. I also seen the guy who is "being fallowed" in the impeial city turn up dead right outside the feed bag. I a;so saw this massive Ai genocide all because an npc stole something.
Pretty much I'm walking to the Inn I se a guy run by with gaurds chasing him. Then another npc got hit and it domino'ed into npc killing other npc and I'm just watching the whole thing. After that I loot the bodies. XD

A normal unbiased thread like this with pretty good on-topic feedback and no trolling downvoted to default? Really zam? I'd like to hear the logic behind the jackass who did that.

I had not noticed this. I don't usually tolerate any wearing on my equipment, guess I should lol
I think it'd be more noticeable on equipment though, since they are all separate items. Like you'd have a really worn shirt while wearing nice new shoes or something like that... it'd keep things variated even among those who wear the same optimal outfit for certain level range. Something like heavy gear damage would have to be made -really- noticeable though.

Someone had told me the wearing could be done with the physics engine, and that it'd look the best.

I wanna see:

An alchemist synth blow up, killing the crafter (DAoC had it LOL)

My robe catch fire when when a monster casts a fire spell on me

black eyes, blood seeping out of tanks wounds etc

But, if they did that, I'd probably stop casting cures, and just stand there taking screen shots.

personally I want to see dynamic weather that devs in Aion are "promising" . Like snow accumilating, rain accumilating causing floods.
can only dream though.

I don't want to "see" anything. I want added functionality (although some of it may be visual).

- Sort function for inventory

- Inventory segregation (weapons/equipment/items/potions)(could even sub-segregate with different jobs weapons, different body part's armor, etc)

- Copy and paste function for entire macro sets (so I don't need to do the /equip bodypart "" over and over again)... especially with the lag!

- Macro template framework (so I don't need to type /equip bodypart "")

- When swapping gear in almost any area, I can't move from 1-6 minutes (more often than not). Until that is fixed, I don't want to see anything mentioned above (in other posts).

- I want to be able to see damage on gear when equipping it. I shouldn't need to back out of equipping, go into inventory (just to see damage), and then go back to equipping it.

- Bring back weaponskills and magic bursts. Make it possible, for long (endgame-ish) fights, to have a 20+ hit combo/skillchain sequence where, the more time into the chain, the less time you have to get follow up the next WS.

- Make the chat log bigger, better, etc. There needs to be a way to expand/shrink it fast. I miss too much chat, I want to be able to see everything I have set up, and I want to be able to do it logically. If they want, they can try having multiple logs (upper right could be LS, lower right could be /s/sh/tell, bottom left could be phys battle dmg, top left could be status/misses/etc).

... I could go on and on ...

Sometimes, in the gridania forest, when it rains, it pours. It would be nice if puddles accumulated, and we could JUMP in them. Oh wait, that would be asking for a JUMP command.

Or, how about lightning storms, with bolts that "accidently" hit AFK RMTs.

I just wanna be able to fix the holes in my poor hempen camisole... It's my favorite one! (As well it should be since I cannot remove it, and I don't care to carry 2 additional slots for swappy swappy underoos.)

Just let the repair process be a one-click happy time. Please. For the love of whomever oversees Eorzea.

they need to make a tab/menu option that shows only damaged gear so you don't have to scroll through your entire inventory selecting item by item to figure it out.

also, my weapon shouldn't go from 100-0% in about 3hrs of grinding...i carry 4 oak canes at all times for this reason...kind of annoying

Looks like game for those with plenty of tissues on hand... >.> <.< *tip-toes off to sign up for it*

Nah, I like a little adult elements in my games like anyone else but that's almost going too far I think personally. I like the elements in FFXIV already, at least they acknowledge the undergarments as separate articles of clothing unlike so many other MMOs out there. But as for armor wear and tear, I think I could go for that a bit maybe... For example it doesn't have to serious wear and tear like that game has. Maybe tears in the cloth (In non-private areas.) dents in your armor, or visible chips or cracked textures in your weapons. It's not really needed however and might even bog the engine more than it already is having to load in textures for each broken/damaged item.

I would like to see my commands, inventory & merchant/retainer/synth windows pop up within milliseconds -- not seconds -- like every other MMO I have ever played. Seriously, if not for that I would still be playing the game. I am not sure what went wrong here with the UI but fix it and I will come back.

To deter RMT maybe? Maybe their reasoning for the retainers too, but at the expense of frustrating legit players it seems. Gil is so easy to come by at higher ranks that it's practically worthless without any sinks in place yet, but it's still up for $ale on third party websites already. I've witnessed a handful of bots in various caves as well, so if this is some attempt to thwart RMT it's not working Square; make the UI more responsive!!
