Shiny… and I do mean SHINY… armor is landing in Guild Wars 2. Today, the game’s producer Paul Ella posted a teaser for the Legendary armor being introduced.
According to the post this armor, which is designed to reflect the success of raiders, is “complicated” — as far as armor creation goes. Even just addressing clipping took a lot of work and required making a wide array of concessions. The armor needed to be special and easily recognizable as belonging to a specific class — no matter what race they are.
Similar to legendary weapons, the armor allows players to select stats from those available in game. Rune use has also been addressed with players being able to swap them out easily.
All in all, the armor will be a nice perk for dedicated raiders. More details for those interested can be found on the Guild Wars 2 site.
