RIFT patch 3.2 plans massive wardrobe overhaul

Sporting the latest fashion will be much easier with RIFT’s upcoming 3.2 patch, Echoes of Madness. It will include a sweeping overhaul to the way that the wardrobe functions, giving players even more choices than before.

A new dev diary posted today takes the time to walk players through the expected changes. The biggest difference with the current system is that the new wardrobe will allow you to unlock and save cosmetic appearances indefinitely, freeing up the storage of actual gear. The new interface will give you all of your cosmetic and dye options for each slot as you build an outfit. Speaking of dyes, all players will get a handful of colors unlocked when 3.2 hits, while additional ones will need to be purchased with credits.

More info about the new system, including set collections and cosmetic weapons, are detailed in the post. What outfits will you be making?

Great game and (flame suit on) very generous free to play system. Really have enjoyed the time I’ve spent in it. Need to go back and achieve my goal of leveling one toon to cap

I’m very happy about this. It isn’t my favorite type of change, but there’s almost nothing about this update that I don’t like. Now if they can figure out a better solution to Instant Adventure achievements..

Sorenthaz Yes. Though it’ll still sell. Maybe not profitable enough.

Cujo H “As usual with fantasy MMOs, I’d want to use the starter bow as the skin for whatever f’d up looking high level bow they forced me to use.” Yay! Now you can. Just roll an alt and the skin should be saved region-wide. I think.

Unlockable dyes? How very 2004 :-p

So dyes are unlocks now akin to GW2…
…Doesn’t that kind of majorly screw over alchemists though since they had access to making all the rare/expensive dyes?

Vikaernes Correction – Rift’s old system is like LotRO’s system. Their new system is a blend between GW2’s style unlocks and LotRO’s outfit slots. And, it probably better to say the Wildstar’s system is a blend between GW2’s style unlocks and dye system and WoW’s transmog system with its cost per item change. 
I’m kinda loving that this wardrobe thing is becoming common enough that I can make all these comparisons now.

Saw this earlier and ALL OF MY HHHHHNNNNNGGGGGSSSSSSSSS.
Seriously, this is superb. It’s everything I wanted out of it (the weapon system is awesome!) and then some nice little bonuses with the item set achievements and the like for folks who care about that kind of stuff.
Only thing that I wasn’t excited about was the new loyalty tier. Like, I’ve spent a pretty penny on Rift since it launched and after it went F2P and have purchased a decent amount of REX in-game and I’m barely halfway through the Orange tier, how much money have people spent that they need a tier above the black tier >.>

Vikaernes Rift announced the wardrobe thing a few weeks ago – http://massivelyop.net/2015/03/13/rift-is-upgrading-its-wardrobe-system/
The holo wardrobe in Wildstar has credit sink element – you have to pay save your wardrobe changes. Rift lets you save your new look for free, but they charge you to unlock more wardrobe slots to be able to switch between outfits on the fly. 
Both systems already exist in other games. Rift’s system is like LotRO’s system. Wildstar’s system is like Guild Wars 2’s system.

Something like this would be nice for archeage. Not up to Trion, and certainly not ever going to happen because the items needed to skin a piece of armor are cash shop so $$$$ but it would be nice. The announcement for Rift comes conspicuously on the heels of Wildstar’s announcement of their wardrobe overheaul… which sounds exactly the same as this one.

Between this and the Instant Adventure overhaul, this is probably the most anticipated patch I’ve gone through in gaming for a long, long time!  So psyched!
