The Wardrobe was added in Patch 2.3 after some testing time on the PTR, and it’s popular (I guess?) amongst players who spend time polishing their character’s appearance. Some fans who have used the Wardrobe much more than I offered a bunch of feedback and got a Blue reply asking for more.
Honestly, I am *STOKED* to finally be able to take these items out of my packs, but even better is that now they show up in the other Menus! I wanted to offer a bit of feedback, though, in hopes of improving the system even further! In no particular order:
When you click on the Wardrobe, it should just automatically pull on the window. Since there are tabs on the side, I think it just makes more sense.
I’m not sure that “Wings” and “Pennants” really warrant having two separate categories. The reason is, I think it kind of pigeonholes you guys into making lots more Wings and Pennants, as opposed to maybe more creative options. Plus, when you equip Wings *AND* a Pennant, it’s visually kind of overkill, to the point I think it starts to look a little silly.
I would love to see a new “Skins” option. That is, being able to replace the character-model with a slightly altered version of them. Look at the new Season 3 artwork, for example; there’s a gorgeous, red-haired Demon Hunter! Or for my Barbarian, I love the idea of having a black Barbarian with long dreadlocks, or maybe a Crusader with fair features and short red hair, sort of an Irish appearance. Really, there’s a lot you could do there, so that even if you have a team of all Male Wizards, they might all look a bit different (even if it’s only their face and skin-color). Keep their voice-work the same, but maybe they also get a different portrait?
Working off of that last idea, maybe even do “Special Skins”, such as giving your Barbarian green skin and black hair like an Orc, or making your Wizard appear as a Protoss. Because they’d be so over-the-top, maybe just reserve them for special events, like on Halloween, or during Blizzcon weekend, stuff like that.
I noticed that “Angelic Wings” has been renamed to “Eternal Light”. I’d personally suggest changing them once more, and calling them “Wings of Justice”, to fit the precedent of the “Wings of Valor”. I might also suggest giving it a cool little quote, too.
By the way, *PLEASE* don’t implement all of those other “Wings” that were datamined. A number of them look virtually indistinguishable from the original Collector’s Edition Wings, and those are something I take a great deal of pride in; if other Wings are to be added, then I think an effort should be made to ensure they’re instantly recognizable as being different.
Obviously, more Pets might be cool… Although I struggle to think what they might be. Personally, I hate the Special Hound-thing that’s currently available, because not only does it look creepy as hell, but it looks like an enemy, so I would constantly stop to try and attack it, which is why I don’t even use it.
Grimiku: Nice thread with lots of good feedback and suggestions. I like to encourage healthy discussions like this whenever I can, and I think it’d be cool to see more ideas (and feedback) from the community about the Wardrobe feature. Thanks for starting it, Terin!
What do you like about the Wardrobe right now?
What about the current functionality do you think could be improved?
What else would you like to see added to this feature?
How about it? Are you guys using the Wardrobe and finding it useful? I see more players than ever (unfortunately, IMHO) running around with glowing/distracting wings, so maybe the Wardrobe is reminding player to turn them on more than in the old “have to click that item in the inventory” days?
