    Well, the Breton costume (at least in the CG) had a cloak. Nord too, but Nord cloak was removed - Breton seems to have kept its cloak, however. At least that's what we can see in the release announcement screenshot.

    We'll see how it will look like in game, if it will be a proper cape or a coat of sorts.

    If it works like a cape, well, that might be their first test. I remember some datamining long ago revealed what seemed like residues from cape items, not sure if anything new developed from that.

    Either way, before some funny pumpkin comes quoting that Incredibles character "No capes!" please step aside and remember that
    1- capes are an intuitive and common piece of clothing meant for several purposes like protection from cold/snow/rain/sandstorms and such. ( Fur cloaks! <3 )
    2- There are cloaks in past TES games like Daggerfall, Arena, statues in Skyrim, etc...
    So, yes, Cloaks are lore-friendly and cloaks are cool. Take your cape-hate elsewhere and let us hope for a nice cloak with Breton costume! :D

    I believe capes and cloaks are a layering issue. Due to massive clipping, they were held back.

    The capes in Dark Age of Camelot were great and you could "dye" them with your guild's heraldry. Nicer than the tabard covering your armour which you worked so hard to get, in my opinion :)

    I believe its a engine thing. I don't think that it supports a dinamic cape.

    They tried capes in alpha.

    Apparently it just contributed to server side lag, as they wanted to do them properly with proper physics and it didn't work.

    Though the game depicts more of a Roman Empire genre, not medieval in my opinion - which began after the fall of the Western Roman Empire. If anything, I would say the game was in the midst of entering something of its version of entering the medieval period.

    To stay on topic, graphically - I think the cape would probably look ugly, but to give the people what they want; it should be an optional appearance, like hats.

    I know that i have been pro cloaks and capes since the pc beta and have seen most about it.

    Its really strange that an 2014 MMO cannot handle such simple thing, horrible engine?

    Yeah, ESO engine is horrible. It's because of it that we don't have underwater exploration/combat, dinamic ships. It's also the reason behind the clunky animations etc.

    There were cloaks in ESO early alpha, it had a majorly negative impact on frames so they were scrapped before beta. If you go to youtube u can find video's of ESO Alpha play.

    I would love to see capes and cloaks! They are always a fun part of customizing the look of your character in other games and they even had them here very early on, alpha I believe. I know they've always said they aren't coming but I feel like all the statues added in newer zones that are wearing cloaks, Gold Coast for example, could be a hint that they are being added at some point. Maybe wishful thinking but I don't understand why they would model those on the statues if they never intend to add them into the game.

    I just dont understand how such small thing like cloaks could have such negative impact on the game when much older games have no problem with them.

    What is wrong with Esos engine??

    If you want your cloak to look like a piece of wood / long sheet of paper glued to your back Im sure it can be done with a very small hit to fps. Getting it to look like a proper cloak is much more resource intensive. In fact Im yet to see an MMO that does cloaks well.

    On a related topic - I would love to see is ZOS making a coat mesh instead of painting coat textures onto the robe mesh thats already in game.
