We got a shiny new warrior armor. The one people often asked for, because it was missing.
But there is a problem with this armor:
It is Prophecies style. No choice of armor function like in Factions, no Insignia option. Only one type of helmet (+1 STR), no +1 Axe/Sword/Hammer helmets are available.
Thanks a lot for adding this armor, but I wonder if I should really buy it. The biggest gripe is the helmet.
People asked ANet to seperate stats from looks since Prophecies, and Factions was a great improvement. Nightfall's Insignia system allows even changing armor function.
It is really sad that new armor models are restricted to the most outdated armor system in all of Guild Wars. What is even more stupid is that one game has three different armor systems.
I expected the Inscriptions and Insignia system to be expanded to all chapters upon the release of Nightfall, now we got hard mode and still have no unified system. Not to mention that Factions and Prophecies Weapon drops usually end as merchantware because they have a horrible Inscription you cannot change.

i like it to see some armors with other bonusses from tyria too, like this one, looks good this idea is old, but i guess they wouldn't do it, so never made this suggestion, its good to hear i'm not the only one

I really think that the insignia system should cover _all_ armour. If anet want to restrict it to just NF players, I wish they would at least have some armouer in NF who can 'upgrade' the armour so that insignia can be used on it.
By the way, that new warrior armour does look pretty cool. Maybe it's finally time for me to put away the old Droknar's Forge armour.

It's pretty ridiculous that my fissure isn't inscribable. Fix this please it's common sense. Stop being retarded.

Fissure was available any way you wanted it so I don't know why you didn't get it the way you wanted it to begin with.
They probably didn't make it inscribable because they wanted it to mesh better with the prophecies armor
