Justified resource allocation; because I can't just take my hat off if I don't want myself and others to see it.

I really dont see anyone using this, most people swap the .dats to display their favorite headgear, and its always looked odd wearing a full set of armor and nothing in the headslot.

I've personally been conditioned over the years to come to terms with wearing a dead bird on my head, or a Mickey Mouse hat, or what have you. It may not look pleasant, but ghetto sheik is all the rage. As it's been said: too little, too late.

I dont think "too little, too late" is the right description lol. They could have implemented this 8 years ago and no one would use it.

Well, back then they forced Players to get with it or get out, in the sense that all the rockin' Gear was fairly grotesque in appearance. Maybe the Playerbase would have opted to use the display toggle had it been provided, who can be sure. It's personally been an enriching experience to become less shallow with regards to appearance (obvious sarcasm).

It's just funny, because I remember when I started playing the game, I had friends who were just starting on WoW, and they expressed that they couldn't stand how my character looked when they had the ability to toggle their hats off.

Dawning the Optical Hat for so long and not having a problem with its appearance is a shame I will take to the grave.

>.> I'm gonna use it cuz Ocelomeh Headpiece is fugly.

Phorcys head is pretty pimp looking with the rest of the gear you'd generally use on DRK, PLD, WAR, BST, DRG. Looks silly on SAM though...just doesn't mesh well with the Unkai Domaru.

When this comes out I'm going to be confused when I see people in battle without headgear.

Just like how it's been hard to adjust seeing people in what my mind instantly thinks is askar/denali(which is actually the neo nyzul gear).

At any rate, I'll be turning this on and full timing Spelunker's hat.

"Don't invite that guy, he doesn't use headgear."



Edit: it's cuz helmets/hats make it difficult to see thus lowering accuracy.

Y'know, even a couple of weeks ago I wouldn't have cared one way or the other, but recently I've been getting really tired of my Q-Tip head (Mavi Kavuk) and have actually been removing it when I'm in town.

I'm very happy Square-Enix is finally giving us this option!

Tarus are just walking hats as seen from the perspective of all other races.

If Tarus start using this feature, the illusion of an entire collective of sentient headgear will collapse, is that really a world anyone would want to live(Play) in??

Have said in the past it would be cool if the visor on helments could be moved up or down etc, like on Hero's Galea etc... but erm... would rather they fixed proper bugs and broken ***before using dev time on this :/

I've been rocking blinkmenot + my shaded specs since blinkmenot was invented.

I'm not stopping now.

Forget making them able to be toggled; that sounds like a giant pain in coding for this game. Just reskin them so the visor is closed. It would go from making them look supremely silly to fairly badass in seconds.
