has anybody seen black heraldic armor? Since they put the crest on the face, it looks like you're wearing a diabolical mask and goddamn it is cool

Not really liking how void is purplish now. Kind of screws with my head, since I'm used to seeing void as B&W.

Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

I've loved almost every piece of armour I have seen, though I do not relish the thought of learning all the new armous and what they are (while I like the plates on the d hide, they should not have made it so metallic looking. A flat colour might have been better). I am especially loving Dragon and Black armours, and look forward to seeing all the varients of black, adamant, and rune. I was not expecting all the varients to be unique, and I am really liking the fact that they have totally left the lazy ass recolor system behind.

Vanilla rune is a bit iffy, and I am just has happy I never use a neit helm. Also the dragon bots are going to look like slippers as soon as I take my dragon armor off, but to matter. I shall wear my dragon slippers with pride when I wear barrows. Or I'll buy bandos boots (I refuse to get steadfast until they stop looking like you have toilet paper stuck on your feet. Even in the highest detail I had to get quite close to realize those were spikes). And from the pictures I have seen, this update is mostly lost on the lower details (as in, it just looks terrible, but then, everything looks terrible in the lower details).

Black elite is also a notable improvement, not that it needed it.

My only ciritcizim is that it seems like everything from black/white and up needs to be super special in some way, which has led to the armours being rediculously fancy. Still, I suppose we will all get used to living in a universe where art is taken just as seriously, if not more so, than function and practicality.

And Torva doesn't look like a sin against the gods of fashion any more. Especially that old helm was just terrible. It doesn't look very good, but if someone handed me a set now I wouldn't be half embarrassed to wear it. I also have to laugh at any comment about armors looking the same now, seeing as more than half of the updated pieces existed as palate swaps.

Oh, and the DFS now goes with ornate dragon, and essentially nothing else. Not that it actually matched anything before, but its kind of highlighted now. Still, it looks very cool.

If you gave me Torva, I'd sell it and buy Pernix :P
Even Black armour looks better than it - it isn't close enough to the original concept (unlike their excellent work on Bandos) and as a result looks out of place.
The Platebody is really oversized, the Helmet ends up looking too small by comparison, and the colour scheme is simply the most awful one to come out of this update.
If they update Virtus and Pernix in line with this I'm going to go mad.

In my opinion torva looks horrible now, probably why the platebody dropped 30m since the update. In general I like the look of the new armour though, although I still have the old full slayer helm for some reason.

I'm actually of the opinion that torva looks like an aberration now. While everything else looks fine, even if a little overdetailed, torva is just unproportionate with the huge, bulky ultra detailed chestplate and the very, very simple platelegs that do not match its level of detail or bulkiness. The helmet is the only piece that I do not abhor.

EDIT: And don't get me started on those WoW-huge shoulder plates. I hadn't seen something so horrible since the latest tiered armor in WoW.

People really need to stop using that tired phrase for every update.

Nobody can deny that the basic armours Bronze-Dragon were outdated. They looked out of place in a game that had advanced around them.

The more I compare old with new the more I'm convinced that the only way people can hate this whole update is due to the fact they can't handle change.

Actually, I'm a bit sad that D Med, Sq and Chain look nothing like the original :P Everything else managed to transition quite decently (especially Bandos, was surprised about that), just that these three pieces which have a kind of definitive feel morphed more than I expected.
Oh and Torva LOL

Totally agree it is such a tired out phrase. They aren't 'fixing' they are UPGRADING outdated graphics, in the same way you buy a new coat when yours gets old and tatty etc.

Sure people may dislike a few armours in the new style, but people are always gonna dislike the look of some armours; but as with every update after about 2 months of dragged out whining and OH MY GOD GIVE US TOOGLEZOR BUTTON JAGEX!?!?$?!SHIFTONE£$$F suddenly it all quiets down and no-one cares about the new looks because they adapt to it.

I mean remember how we all hate and cannot get on with the new interface, new scimitars, lp, new prayer points, new damage splats, new barrows armours even? Oh wait no we do get along fine with all them because you get used to change.

This time around they really were fixing something that was "broken".

My god I actually agree with this guy for once!

Sure you might not like a few of the new armours. But I would bet every penny I have that you same people did not like every single set of the old armours either.

I think this is a very good update from Jagex.

I don't dispute that it's a good update that is sure to drive the game forward, but you have to sometimes wonder what the concept artists were thinking.

:lol:


As much as I love the update, there are several armour sets that have, in my opinion, been made worse. Such as Torva, lol.. so pleased they didn't change Pernix.

But for the most part, I think it is a huge improvement.

Does anyone remember how dragon platelegs used to look like long time ago? Those thick, massive, warrior -style looking legs.

Posted Image

Then they made them look like they were worn by a fricking ballerina dancer. I mean come on!

Posted Image

Now they're decent. But I'd still like to see all the platelegs look wider, thicker; something that a warrior would wear.

Summary: I think they should make all the platelegs more massive. I don't want the old graphics back if it sounds like that. I love the decoration etc. but I'd just like them to be more massive.

The one that still gives me a good chortle is the RSOF with people being like look at all the threads everyone hates it. It's like no dear a few hundred people posted hating it, for every one of them there is 100-1000 people perfectly happy with the update who aren't spamming forums and are just getting on with the game.

I really dont understand people hating this update so much, i cant understand if people dislike it, thats fair enough, but to spend days ranting about it.. i find that pretty sad. Stuff like this always happens when major updates happen then after a week everyone loves it, i personally liked this update, it just makes you realise how bad the old graphics actually were and as for the people saying they want 07 graphics back, most of them didnt even play at that time it makes me lol.

At least they did not revert back to platemail bikinis.
My biggest surprise was rune going back to the neon teal.
