This is trivial and I'm probably in the minority but this is my pet peeve about the game:
Ok, GW1 had tinted glasses but atleast they were called "tinted glasses" which is something you can digest. Ok, if you're hell-bent on keeping the looks, atleast rename it to something a bit more lore-friendly. This is not a land of helicopters and Mcdonalds and Michael Bay, this is the land of yaks and ale and "moot" - so where the hell did the aviator sunglasses come from ?.... This is just wrong.
There is a reason why skyrim's "lore-friendly" armor mods are so good. There's a reason why the entirety of the Witcher series is so unique. It's because they keep it LORE-FRIENDLY.
Anet, you've spent so many years creating a wonderful fantasy world with amazing lore, why tarnish it by introducing ridiculous stuff like this. We know you have to cater to the "hip" crowd as well but it could be done a bit more elegantly.
If Aviator sunglasses are the in thing, why does Kormir still wear that stupid bandana over her eyes then ? Wanna know why ? because it's LORE-FRIENDLY. SHE knows it and so should you!
Thanks for the otherwise amazing game btw.

Lore friendly ?

Exactly my concerns with the BLTC.

I agree with you on this. However, you should be permanently banned for posting that pic. And beaten with a stick. You know you deserve it.
What's a BLTC?

There are sky ships in GW2, so Aviator Sunglasses are not that bad.
Nothing can be as bad as having to see that picture...

+1 for best worst picture ever.
I think you could be on to something though with keeping items either in-game or cultural-nuancey.
Nowt wrong with either, but finding an in-game balance would be nice.
Perhaps some 'Maverick' asura invented them to increase productivity at aerial polymock or something.

Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the glasses in GW1 either. Even if they were around during the times you'd find sword fighting and other fantasy-esque things, I highly doubt you'd see a fighter running around in glasses. Just too much of a detriment during a battle (breakable sharp pieces near your eyes? Great idea! Potential loss of vision if your glasses get knocked off? Brilliant!)
Anyway. That horse is 250 years dead. Sorry.
But! Yeah, the aviator sunglasses and boxing gloves... blarg. Not a fan, won't buy them, will still see people running around wearing both at the same time. Bah.
Also, BLTC should stand for Bananas Like To Conga.

- Tarnished Coast
- The Order of Dii [Dii], Do Not Revive Asura [Ever], When Zergs Collide [CERN]
I say no; especially those given at the "hunger games" last BWE.

Yeah, boxing gloves I find even worse.
