    [Suggestion] Fashion/Vanity Slots.

    Yes I know this has been brought up a few times, but I thought I'd put up an official thread for this request so that maybe Bayohne or Rukkirii see it and hopefully pass it on to the devs. I posted this in General since it will be seen here the most and I really hope people will support this and it will be passed on to the devs. ^_^

    The Idea
    To have seperate slots for your equipment that actually gives you stats, with the option of a 2nd row of slots where you can put in other armour. This armour will then act as your visible gear. You do not get any stats from it or any bonuses, only the way it looks.

    Why?
    The FFXIV devs have done an amazing job of creating gorgeous and highly detailed pieces of gear. However due to the nature of MMOs, us players end up maximizing our potential through stats. Due to this, we often end up in gear that is highly mismatched and we just look horrible.
    Fashion slots enable us to retain gear that we find aesthetically pleasing or has sentimental value to us. It also means that older content such as raid gear (and maybe even weapons in the future) stays important to people, since with fashion slots you may have a reason to go back and get an old piece of gear because you liked how it looked.
    With the implementation of fashion slots, our amazingly detailed Artifact Armour, our old raid gear, old crafted gear, old quested gear and seasonal event gear can still be used. We can still mix and match our equipment to get the best stats out of them, but we now have the option of changing the way we look. I know I would rather wear my amazing White Mage armour instead of looking like a hobo clown. O.o"
    Not to mention that fashion slots and armour has become the norm in many other MMOs and we all want FFXIV to be up there with them and succeed. ^-^/

    Restrictions
    Fashion armour will be bound to classes/jobs, just as normal armour is. This will ensure that you do not have mages running around in metal suits of armour, and you won't have warriors running around in black mage robes.
    This option enables people to individually decide how their characters want to look without sacrificing stats. Furthermore, by keeping the class and job restrictions on the armour you put in the fashion slot, you would not necessarily see something too out of place that would irritate people either.

    Concept

    Here is a little idea of what it might look like.
    Imagine if in the future there is suddenly a new set/ pieces of gear that replace the AF gear/ whatever other gear you have have become attached to. Now you can wear the new gear for the stats and if some pieces clash or are ugly, you just wear the item you want in your fashion slot.
    For example: Your new leg armour are funny tights, but you would much prefer your darklight breeches, or your AF shorts. Or you are Reinhart and really want to wear a subligar, but don't wanna sacrifice the stats from your good trousers. So you just put your nice trousers in your fashion slot. So you can either put on only individual items in your fashion slots, or even replace everything.



    Additional Ideas
    In the future, it might be interesting to add a Fashion Slot for your weapon as well. No, I am not implying joke weapons such as hammers and lollipops. I would intend for this to be a way to keep using your Ifrit, Moogle or Garuda weapon in the future, if you really like the way it looks. You just use your new strong weapon, but equip your old Ifrit weapon as a sort of "skin".

    So please support this thread everyone, so that Yoshi-P and the dev team might see it and hopefully implement it in 2.0 or maybe even earlier. Please keep the comments civil, thank you. <(^_^)>/

    I actually did not mean extra costumes and stuff as I know that will just have people screaming that it breaks immersion and "it's not FF."

    I just want the option so we don't end up looking as horrible as some jobs already do or as bad as chars ended up looking in FFXI. ^^"

    This is what PLers actually believe. May Altana have mercy on our souls...

    I had created a thread almost exactly like this one in my sig. I liked yours anyway though.

    It's an idea though that people either love or it doesn't really matter to, since it doesn't have any cons. I still hope they add something such as this.

    I totally support the idea, it is an everyday work to look pretty, and yes, some items with good stats don't really make it simple at all .

    I want to look great anytime, even on the battlefield ! ^^

    Just like my red skirt and Bard AF high heels, those are my best friends

    Give us an option to turn vanity items off, then sure. I prefer looking at other gear over AFs/etc.

    Thumb this, guys. I want to see "likes" above 100 by tomorrow or sooner.

    Edit;
    Just wanted to clarify, in case someone misunderstands and thinks me a narcissist. I mean the OP, thumb the OP.
