Thinking about the shiny Biast, it got me thinking.

What about glowing equipment? The whole **** thing doesn't have to be completely, blinding radiant, but just accents here and there on the armors that makes it purdy.

Not only that, but also for the wavers. Hypercolor shirts! Everyone loves them, have them shift colors during different weather conditions!

I miss the 1980s....

Personally, I'd just be happy with more colour options for the existing equipment never mind having it glow in the dark. It's great that I can dye my cotton shirt red, but why does "red" look more like a muddy brown colour instead of what I expect? Green at least looks the part, but blue seems bright white in appearance!

I'd love to see armour with an 'aura' (flames, glows, sparkles, whatever) but I think that should be reserved for either augmented gear or impressive HNM gear.

It would be nice to be able to put your LS blazon on your shield and tabard. I would also like the color options to stay consistent through the ranks. I'm wearing a green cotton robe and would like to wear a green canvas robe when I upgrade, but no such luck.

If they do any glowing gear, I think it should be reserved for super ultra omgwtf rare stuff. If everyone is glowy, then it's just annoying.

FFXIV at least -tries- to promote realistic looking artwork and environments; if everyone is shiny and glowing then it kinda detracts from that.

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

I wouldn't mind glowing weapons for different status effects or what not that they might carry, but that's about all I'd want to see really. I agree with Mikhalia that the game goes for a more realistic feel, and I'd like to keep it that way if at all possible. Also, and I know this is probably a shallow comment, having glowing gear would just remind me a lot of WoW gear, and for me personally, that's not something that I want. It has it's place in WoW for sure, but I just don't think it belongs in ffxiv to that extent.

I just be happy if my Leather Jacket (Red) actually had some red in it so that it looked like my Leather Jackboots (Red) or Leather Wristguards (Red). I can't find any red on my **** jacket.
