Character *Inspect*- Enchanced Version

Postby Metaphizix » Wed Feb 06, 2013 1:02 pm

When I go to view another character/player in the game all I see is an image of their character. I think it would be pretty cool and unique to see each others actual items equipped. What does everyone else think?

I think he means to actually see what equipment, enchantments, and gems the person has equipped. This is something on our to-do list, but it is relatively low priority. It will eventually get in.

I think that's a terrible idea, and if it is implemented, I'd like an opt-out. Especially once we have PvP.

Seeing my might total and the look of the things I have openly equipped is one thing; seeing the details of my entire setup, including enchantments, is way too invasive. I don't want to share that with everyone.

Also, this could conflict with costume slots, which are actually desirable.

I don't think this is a terrible idea at all. I'm sure they could make it where you don't see the players might only their equipped items. I think it would make this game more interactive and challenging. Then you would be able to compare gear with players/friends and it would make you like you would want to play the game more to compete with others. I play many mmo's and I know how many players think....especially if you guys were to construct pvp seasons/events and you could win certain gear that other players can't get along with maybe holding a special title that other players can't get either unless you win a special event of some sort. All of these small things are actually big in the mmo world. It makes the game addictive, and players are always competing. And in also thinking around that time you guys should have a trade block for players along with random generated armor and weapons so that each persons gear are distinctive.

This is something we want to implement, now it's just a matter of budgeting the development cycles.

But it could ruin the secret sauce of a good PvP build... ;)

It would be nice to see what gems someone has equipped but only if the player being inspected allows it. I've been sworn to secrecy to some players so that not everyone copies their build or whatever that they figured out on their own.

If players wish to share any of their builds, gem configurations, etc u have to go out of game and share screen shots. Not a big deal to be but it would just be nice. Put an on/off button in the options screen like the helmet display option.

I'd rather see a change where u can see how much e a toon has when switching characters and maybe even see what quests u have on that toon.

I'm 100% against this. I've worked hard and spent a lot of time and money getting to where I am. Working out builds take trial and error and to do all that work just to have someone inspect you and see it for free? Let the players play the game and figure it out on their own.

That's crap so keep it in the crap pile.

We have talked about implementing this feature several times in the past, but it is one of our lower priority features. When we do add it, we would probably make it so you would need to opt-in in order to make your actual gear and abilities viewable.
