But the armor changes suck. Calling them "improvements" shows how amateur this dev team is.
edit- I forgot to say- all your armor sucks @eso dev team. You made a game from 2014 look like it's from 2002, grats.Now if only your other team could make Cyrodiil performance not suck so we have a reason to deal with your childlike "artwork".
LOL You mean like the first link i posted from the friking metropolitan museum of art?
You are wrong. deal with it.
The point is here, THERE ARE NO 'FEMALE' ARMORS IN MUSEUMS. wow.
Please, change the vizor of the Breton hevy helm...the black texture on this vizor there can be see the part of characters face and eyes...its just terrible, its really not a good work...and its spoils such a nice armor.

Looking through the series of pictures in this article, you quickly notice that it is the most drastic change of the 6 sets, and is a bit boggling considering the passion players have for this one specific set.
I won't say there couldn't have been improvements to the textures, but here we have a complete reworking of the style that removes the majority of what I found to be the appealing aspects of the armor.
Side by side comparison: There is nothing new here that I actually prefer over the old style. I'll take the "painted on" buckles and rope over a bizarre metal lined protective plate on my CLOTH armor any day. The helm doesn't look noticeably different other than the fact that they removed the most distinctive and unique feature from the old version. I'm not even a big fan of the redesigned cloth texture either, as now it is a bit too shiny and clean for the dusty desert dweller look that we had previously.
But personal opinion aside, it really boils down to WHY they're REPLACING armor that exists rather than ADDING new styles to the game. Just put them both in the game. Currently we have one style for Spidersilk, Ebonthread, Kresh, Ironthread, Silverweave, and Shadowspun - surely one of those can keep this old style that many people love while the rest get changed to whatever new style you guys create.
I've had brand new players walk up to my character that wears Redguard armor and whisper me, saying "wow, that armor's awesome, what level is that?" - why would you take something that elicits this reaction in yours players away? Give people the option. If they like the new style, great! If they like the old style, great! Variety is important, and with additions like the Crown Shop costumes, the game is recognizing that. Please don't simply remove a style that someone has already worked to create, and frankly looks very good.
