Guild Wars 2
generated some buzz this week with a detailed blog post regarding the upcoming game's dye system for character armor
. Players will have the ability to dye each armor piece different colors -- white sleeves and a red bodice, for example -- and the full dye system could have over 400 available colors.
This system brings the following question to mind: "Do you care?" The attention paid to armor style varies widely in MMOs, from the nonexistent armors of EVE Online
to the not-so-pretty armors of Dungeons and Dragons Online
to the stylish armors of Final Fantasy XIV
. Are you the type to spend time getting your gear's appearance just so, or are you more interested in spending time on the battlefield rather than the catwalk?
