White Items for Glamor?

Recommended Posts

There are some really nice looking vendor only available item models that are "white" grade.

 

Is there a particular reason we cannot use white items as glamor models?

I checked most weapon vendors in game and sadly, their items are not available for appearance change. But I can't answer 'why'.

 

Try looking at http://bns-fashion.com/, you might find some easily obtained or cheap weapons that look nice too...

Yeah, I really wish we could use ANY weapon for glamour.  I even really like the look of some of the starting/training weapons.

It's when you project the image of one weapon onto another.

The weapon crafted by Forgekeepers looks exactly like the training weapon but with a different color.

It's there at least since you get your Hongmoon weapon.

In a certain other game white items are not allowed to be used for appearance change because the devs introduced some "fun" items that they felt would be inappropriate for more widespread use. And I can get that. But in B&S these very nice looking white vendor items fit quite squarely with the overall theme of the game. Heck, I've seen NPCs wearing them as well as the models being used in promotional shots.

 

Perhaps the devs are worried players would look too much like NPCs? Or wanted to keep those models exclusive to NPCs? I guess I just wish I knew the "why".

Yep,  The WoW term is transmog.  The BnS (& FFXIV) term is glamor.  You can right click your equipped hongmoon weapon and it's the option on the right hand side of the manage equipment window like shown in the picture Sharka posted.  Keep in mind that unlike WoW, the weapon you take the appearance from is destroyed in the process.
