When Shroud of the Avatar said that it is developing worn and rusty armor and weapons to meet player demand for such things, it may sound, well, downright strange. Yet when you think about it, there is an appeal to wearing and sporting gear that has a “lived in” look instead of immacuately perfect and shiny outfits.
As such, worn, rusted, tattered, and dirty armor will start to be dropped with Shoud of the Avatar’s Release 53. The team said that players can either equip these or salvage them for patterns.
Generating dirty laundry for a future patch isn’t all the team is doing these days. Work progresses on new scenes, including the village of Eastmarch (and surrounding areas), the pirate haven of Penmawr Island, and the besieged town of Tenebris Harbor.
Meanwhile, the team has revealed some of the storyboards behind the game’s cinematic. Pretty nifty!
Today, we are revealing the storyboard behind the SotA animatic trailer, highlighting the cataclysm and the path of the virtues! See the complete storyboard at: https://t.co/PFheILD4Fl pic.twitter.com/rYzrQLQ5Ft
