One thing I miss at the moment are more "unique" or "unusual" items.
The different daggers for Gladiators are a step in the right direction,
but boy would I be happy if they allowed us to truly customize our gear
and weapons in a way we want to (see augment system in FFXI). Or re-dye
our stuff. May not be highest on the priority list, but would definitely
make me a happy player. Yay for uniqueness.

Actually there are several unique items. At 23 Gladiator, I use the Vintage square shield. Works for both my gladiator and my conjurer, and it's one of the best shields until 25 based on it's wield and block rate.

All the Vintage gear is unique. There are also several other items. There appears to be a tiered level of progression, and quite a few of the items are better than their non-unique counterparts. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that all of them are that way.

I think pre-release they had plans for re-dying and changing hairstyles, but they've taken a deep back seat amidst the current fallout. Who knows when we will see them now.

I do agree though that stuff like this is **** important to the overall experience once we get out of Beta 5.

Now what do I do with it?

Oh...right...

I miss rare items that come with weird/unique traits that make them more interesting than items without weird/unique traits.

14 has lost quite a bit of creativity in that department so far. Kinda left out the Fantasy part when it comes to Armor and Weapons. Hopefully new dev team will add some life into this.

As long as that doesn't translate to "insert obscure hidden effects on items that no one will be able to figure out until we reveal them to players 5 years later" like FFXI.

Now if only I could dye these black and maybe have some shear-fabric they'd be perfect!

Why do the highlanders have only one white band harness for the torso? It's one of the coolest accessories in the game.

People seem to forget that rank 50 is max rank FOR NOW.

There isn't much flashy gear or unique equipment of epicness before rank 50 in FFXI either. Heck, the AF quest starts at rank 52-60.

Sure they could give us "Epic glowing sword of flamey doom" and "jacket of eternal sparkliness" now but that would just make sword of flamey doom II and jacket of eternal sparkliness II look stupid when we finally get them at rank 60+. Right now our characters are only Kids, Kids wear kids clothes and fight with sticks. Suits and machine-guns are for adults.

But if you still want something cool and diffrent, go kill some NMs and try to get a tricorne or mosshorn scalemail. Or why not try to collect a full buccaneers set, looking pretty **** for beeing "only" rank 50.

I have one of those, I've been wondering if it upgrades into anything since it's repaired with Buffalo leather and rank 18. I only used it on the fish quest though...

Doesn't mean we can't get something like the Star Spangled Subligar. It looks awsm in-game, sadly there're only two Unique pieces you get from Class Quests: The subligar and the Woolen Sugarloaf hat with glasses. It looks very much likely that they planned a lot more silly looking stuff but were cut short.
