RIFT implements wardrobe changes to allow for more reasonable appearance unlocks

Look flashy.
Another patch is soon to arrive in RIFT to bring some improvements to the game’s Wardrobe system. Moving forward, any items which are bound to your account or soulbound are unlocked on your wardrobe, as they’re obviously meant for just your character to unlock the appearance. If you get a quest reward that your class cannot equip but is still bound to you, it will also be unlocked in your wardrobe.

Meanwhile, bind-on-equip items will still need to be equipped by one of your characters in order to unlock the appearance, so that much hasn’t changed. This should prevent situations where players trade appearance items around for a fee in order to unlock appearances on multiple characters, so these are either sensible and positive changes (if you weren’t engaged in that anyway) or really killing something you did in the game (if you used to do that and now you’re going to be stuck unable to do so). Good luck to the appearance hunters in the game!

Now this is a wardrobe system. They got this right in Rift. ESO’s on the other hand is a joke.

I feel like, if WoTC are going to pay for Neverwinter ads localised in German on my screen, because I live next door in Poland, they should at least use a photo of Kat Divine doing her legendary Valindra cosplay. :D

(And yes, this is good RIFT news, I’m looking forwards to this one dropping! :)

Erm…was this not always the case? Because I remember unlocking plenty of stuff my characters couldn’t use while leveling up alts specifically to get a lot of the appearance unlocks >.>
