    I like this a lot better than the Witch Doctor one. Even more-so after they reminded us of the dye mechanic:

    keep in mind if you don't happen to like that shade of red, it can drop in any number of colors, or be customized to your liking through the dye system.



    EDIT: Don't read the comments in the Facebook thread I linked above. Just don't. :banghead:

    i really like the idea of not being forced to run around with my wizard in big bulky armor. doing it this way should provide a better look for the characters. just hope it does not look really bad when mismatched

    ehh where where the plate mail in that picture:ponder:

    is it hiding under that orange garment??

    at least she is protective about her legs:scratchchin:

    will be interesting to see how my characters look with the most defensive looking gear on them. This reminds me more of a goth:s evening dress that got to much color on it.

    @lone_wolf

    My guess would be the parts that are plate mail are: Boots, gauntlets, the belt looking thing, breastplate, and that shoulderpad, and the helm also.

    Sure it doesn't look like more traditional and practical platemail, but then again it'd be boring if it was.

    i have heard about and seen chainmail bikinis but this is the first time i seen a plate male bikini. Here midriff is more or less bare. But i guess its the usual fantasy thing going on as usual.

    @AxeX i guess your right but i would not call that a breastplate

    I *love* the idea of random color drops. This adds another variable that affects an items desirability and trade value, but this time it's purely aesthetical.

    Re: Female Wizard gear set

    Cool design, i specially love the details on the metal parts ... neat .. unfortunately most of it won't be this clear when seen from a top view .. but still .. it looks cool nonetheless.

    But actually the headdress makes me think of something .. will helmets lose their uniqueness as they were in D2 separate from the armor tier/level you wear .. you equip any helmet and it looks on the character exactly (or mostly) as it looks in the inventory .. but what i see here is that the helmet feels like it's a part of the armor tier look .. so will it be either be no helmet or this one specific helmet design no matter what helmet you wear with this specific armor tier !!!? .. i hope not.

    ----------------------------------------------

    How exactly ?

    Re: Female Wizard gear set

    @diablo said this is around lvl 20 gear. so it's probably like, the lowest level of plate mail in the game. or something like the 13th quality level of armor, on the 18 sets sliding scale from cloth to FPM.

    Re: Female Wizard gear set

    So, does this mean armor (item) design will keep on evolving throughout nightmare and hell difficulty unlike D2 (where a light plate looks like a mage plate looks like a archon plate)? If so, that would be great.

    About the design shown itself, pretty meh honestly.
    Also, i still don't really get what (separate) items we're seeing here.

    Re: Female Wizard gear set

    Gauntlets can easily be distinguished from greaves, etc for the rest. They're of matching base item, so perhaps that confused you.





    I like the armor, but I'll probably go without the helm like in D2. IDK why, but I always preferred the helm-less look on all chars (except a crown on pally and winged helm on barb).

    Re: Female Wizard gear set

    So its not just the body armor dictating the design of the gauntlets we're seeing here?
    I hope not.

    It's the armor class dictating the design.

    Plate armor means plate gauntlets.
