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It is really sad that new armor models are restricted to the most outdated armor system in all of Guild Wars.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.
