Discussion: What do you think about an option to toggle the visibility of accessories


Recommended Posts

I posted something similar with detailed reasons as to why it might be a good idea here, but someone kindly moved it to the suggestions forums lest someone reads it^^

Summary: NOT using accs is no longer an option with supreme quality now (your missing out on 300-600 points on single stats) so lets have a toggle for their display since most of the accs clip with the hero costumes / mess up the look / are ugly /....

Your thoughts?

It was moved to the Suggestions forum because it was a suggestion. :^)

I'd personally like this, but I don't believe it's going to happen as per Jeremy in a previous Digest.

Well yes but in the previous digest you had yet to create a flood of supreme accs due to a scripting oversight and consequently included a way to farm them regularly on a campaign map. And while i didnt get a supreme form Aka yet the myth quality if received so far is waaaay better than what you can get from regular maps on survival mode. So we realy are beyond the point of accs being an optic gimmick one can vote out off.

Edit: @ Hitmo: I understand your reasons for moving an redaing it again it realy is a suggestion. I was just a bit pissed that it got moved to a forum no one ever reads so I made some snide remarks.

For me, the hunt for accessories that have not only good stats, but also the right shape and color for my character is part of the game's longevity - and with the new Akatiti accs which can drop every possible model, it has become easier than ever. I feel that the ability to 'hide' the accessories and turn them into mere stat sinks would remove part of the challenge and kind of defeat the point.

I agree though that accessory placement on many heroes, especially the newer outfits and classes, could do with some tweaks.

I guess this wouldnt be a bad idea. I commonly use sub-par accs that look cool on a class I'm playing but sometimes the stats are too good to pass up.

I would love this. I like seeing my character's face every so often so I don't really use masks at all, and feathers look absolutely terrible on many classes/skins. Bracers and shields are about the only accessories I really consistently like on everyone. ...Who can equip them, obviously, given limited shield options.

I'm totally against it.

If you don't like the look of something, don't equip it. You can't sell me the "but it looks bad", when there is enough of them to make a good combination.

If you didn't like the look of a weapon or pet, you wouldn't equip it, so what's different here?

The diffrence here is that something that started out as an optics gimmick (that could be ignored) with maybe 20 or 30 stat points is now able to reach 200+ tower attack per piece and thus an essential contribution to your stats. 600+ tower damage is the diffrence between reaching wave 25 on a mixed survival or being able to reach wave 30. So if you dont use accs now your seriously crippling your characters stats. And some combinations are realy stupid: The tavernkeep with the brooches in the skull, the penny arcade monk costume is completly incapable of wearing any kind of mask since they horribly clip whit his own hat (speaking of hats, PA monk cant wear those either cause he already has a hat of his own), practicaly every non basic skin has clipping issues with bracers and im sure the list goes on.

That doesn't change the fact that you have options. Yes some suck, but not all.

My opinion hasn't changed. Leave them visible for me.

And these are the 2 offenders, so pls do tell me how exactly you avoid using something that gives your hero 400+ in relevant stats per piece. Face it, its no longer an option to not use them.

You currently need 3k stats to obtain accessories like that. When you already have 3k stats, then yes, 400 more is just an option.

If you don't like what it looks like on your character, just farm or trade for a better one.

That doesn't show anything that would warrant toggling them off... Unless I'm blind?

If you don't like their appearance, find a different pair that you like :)

I'd love to be able to toggle accessories. I don't know why it wasn't implemented in the first place.


Because they are made to be shown? Like a weapon and pet. :)

Well to be fair the bracers photo is horrible, but they are constantly poking my crotch.

But if you cant see what wrong with the mask, sorry to say classic but then you are blind^^
