Look good, feel good. That most certainly applies when it comes to your avatar in MMORPGs, but perhaps Avatars in Shroud of the Avatar have been feeling a bit stymied in their fashion choices recently. With Release 86 (or sometime after, apparently), those choices are going to open up with some planned changes to gear patterns.
In the near future, players will get to apply patterns from more broadly covered weapon types, changing one-handed longsword patterns to simply be one-handed blade patterns as an example, while equipment patterns will simply be assigned categories like head, chest, hand, and leg patterns. Players can also look forward to some new off-hand patterns and the ability to apply patterns within the same Artifact gear slot.
On the subject of Release 86, SOTA is eyeing a launch of January 28th, which will also bring the Well of Aldur adventure scene, corpse and coffin decorations (ew), eight new crafted conversationalists, new crafted and premium scroll decorations that let players put down their own custom literary works (we’re sure that won’t be abused horribly), and a promised slew of quality-of-life improvements. But perhaps more importantly, players will soon get to dress up real nice.
