    Why do best items in this game look so ******?

    It's not very fun..

    Shako - an ordinary leather cap, looks like a condom, if it at least was green, like in inventory, but no..
    Dusk shroud - one of the best armor for enigmas yet looks so bad, absolutely horrible on paladin..
    Zerker - best 1h weapon and it looks like a lollipop :|
    Ethereal items - look as if you were swinging with bare hands - I personally hate it

    Things like heavy armors, coronas, etc. look so much better imho. I know it's a matter of taste, but.. :grin:

    Don't try to bypass the swear filter.

    Shako looks normal, get over it. You look the same with a hood on.
    Use a Mage or Archon plate then.
    No, it looks like an axe.
    Personally I like ethereal items.

    I agree with Shako. It should look green. I never use a Shako on a Sorceress or Paladin because it makes them look bald. :rolleyes:

    The armor issue - there is a reason I usually never make runewords in light armors for Babas/Pallys/Druids/Necro. Unless you're doing some serious PvP optimization, I prefer looks over an extra 20 Vit/5%-10% FRW. Besides, Dusk Shrouds look pretty good on the female characters.

    What I hate: War Sceptors look like a huge hammer.

    When playing in classic, the silks looked so fancy on the necro that I just had to get it no matter what. Generally heavier armor looks nicer, wish my merc would change its look.

    No matter how cool they try to make things look, there will be some people who don't like it. I like the way my fort dusk looks on my zealer. I also like the eth look. I like shako too. Maybe the heavier armors are supposed to look cooler. Maybe the designers didn't know that strength requirements would become so important. If you're playing untwinked, then it makes perfect sense for the high str armors to look better.

    I agree with you on the zerker. All the axes with that graphic look lame to me since they are so small. Ettin axes look much better.

    I love the look of light armors on paladins, personally I find the archon plate paladin graphic to be hideous. Looks like a broke-*** power ranger.

    I love the look of shako on my paladin. Also I love the look of archon plate on him.

    Yeah, but one of the worst is dusk shroud on an amazon imo.

    In pretty much every game that has paladins, they look like power rangers..

    yeah, except that they didn't even try.

    a berserker axe looks like a camp hatchet. i can't stand it

    BA is hands down the most ugly item. It looks like a plastic axe obtained from the lokal toy shop.

    Re: Why do best items in this game look so sh*tty?

    I absolutely agree, but for instance weapons should look at least a bit intimidating, not ridiculous, like zerkers.. and light armors suck in appearance because there is nearly no difference when it comes to "naked" character and a char wearing ghost/dusk, for example.. only an extra belt or smth like that.. They were too lazy to design something looking different so they just put a few pixels here and there :X

    Oh, sorry bout the swearing. Supposed it was ok to censor it myself.

    The best looking paladin for me wears Guardian Angel, CoA, Zaka and a good looking weapon. I find headstriker fitting him well because his holy shield has the same color. ;)

    Personally the character that looks the best is a Sorceress wearing either an Archon Plate/Boneweave and a Bone Helm, carrying a wicked Phase Blade.

    ^^^^Yes, Sorc with a Scythe Is indeed sexy :)
    Speaking of Shako's, when I aquired my first ever Shako, I was extremely sadened by the fact that It didn't look green when It was on the Character.
    Would look great, an all green character. Green Shako, Green Leviatan, Green Shield and maybe just a normal Phase Blade. Light Blue and Green=Hawt.

    Milabrega's set is blue, and the armor is Heavy type, so if you go for style, equip it.

    BTW, white-coloured items look cool, IMHO. Think Sigon.
