Armour Sets From Beta

MMO Champion has a great thread that has compiled armour sets from the beta. Included are 8 sets, for each profession and gender in the beta. Not to mention a few asura styles at the end.

I’ll post the sets below, but one of the really amazing aspects of the thread is that someone compiled what you could see in the PvP storage area for armours into 3 lists. Each list has around 30 sets of armour. Not much you can tell from just the names of sets but it’s pretty cool. So be sure to check that out.

Now keep in mind these are all from the character creation screens, reflecting profession choices, but for non-asians we won’t start with these armours. The asian demo allowed them to start with these because asians prefer to look good from day one.

Male norn.

Male charr.

Male human.

Female human.

Female norn.

Female charr.

Asura

I’m not going to examine every armour set, a lot of people have probably watched videos where you’ve seen these sets before, but one thing that stood out to me is the diversity. These aren’t just copied from one race to another or one gender to another. There is a lot of time and work put into making them different for each race and gender.

So yeah, good work MMO Champion forumites. Don’t forget to check out those light, medium, and heavy set lists.

  1. These… are… f*cking… brilliant, btw i really think of getting the CE, is it worth the 149.99?

    • Complicated question. really depends on what you personally are in to. If you like the physical representation of your fandom, yeah sure. If you want more useful stuff in game, not so much, get the digital deluxe, and if you just want beta access and headstart, just get the standard digital pre-purchase.

  2. Sigh. I’m now thinking I may need one of every race and gender and class just to see all the options. Oh man that’s way too many!

    • That may be a little extreme. Remember that the armour reflects the profession but isn’t exclusive to it, so they probably chose an armour for aesthetic reasons but with only 3 armour types you can try some of these armours out on the same professions.

  3. ArenaNet, good call on transmutation stones!(Thumbs up and clapping here)

    • *adds to the applause and nods head*

      • Any game that comes out without this in the future is screwed.

    • Yes, I can’t wait to try out that little mechanic.

      • I just wonder if the change to the FAQ regarding the shop means that transmutation stones can actually be earned in game as well. Conspiracy theorists were too busy flipping out to notice any potential positives, especially considering that many fans specifically requested that store items be obtainable within the game as well.

        • I think it was just added to clarify what they think is an advantage and what other people think is an advantage. Free to play games often sell things that save time, and some people consider that an advantage, for instance.

  4. I really like the look of some of these. I’m especially fond of how each race/gender looks so different in the same armor.

    I’m particularly excited about the Human and Norn males. Certain armors are much nicer on the Norn vs the Humans and vice versa. The females are less exciting in that, personally, I feel the Human armors are across the board nicer than the Norn.

    I’ll definitely be an abuser of the transmutation stones. I love the look of that Norn warrior, but I think I want to play a guardian. Will I do best of both world? Yes, I think so, Thank You Arenanet.

    • I don’t know if I entirely agree that human armours look better, perhaps just a matter of subjective taste. Some do, some don’t IMO.
