Yes, folks. The latest cause of Amber rage is one particular aspect of gear design…belts. Specifically, cloth belts.
See, I spend a lot of time staring at my character. Why do you think you get spammed with so many screen shots of her? I admire her cute little tail, or her boobs (why do you think I refuse to wear a tabard? Her current disc robes are hawt), or…I don’t know. I just get bored and stare at her a lot, okay? Anyway, it drives me nuts when her gear doesn’t match. Naturally it’s a total mishmash of Naxx25 and Ulduar gear at the moment, so I get driven nuts pretty much all the time…but nothing drives me crazier than her belt. Because, see…it’s not even really a belt.
In Naxx, my belt looked like an actual individual piece-you know, something actually put on over my robes. You know what the hell Ulduar belts look like? …slices of robe. What the fuck, Blizz?
This is a close-up of Kyr’s priest, Maedchen, next to my paladin Ambrosyne. See how Ambro’s belt…looks like a belt? And how Maed’s (her name is GIRL, Ky, seriously?) just looks like someone sliced a bit of the same robe out but in different colors? I mean it looks great if you have the matching robe! It just seamlessly flows but…uh…how often do you have the matching robe? The one that matches Lyr’s belt is…a DPS robe. With hit on it. Don’t tempt me to do silly things in order to match, Blizz! Just don’t!
How HARD it is to like…add some definitive lines there and make it it’s own, distinct peice and not something I could do with a pair of scissors?
