ESO armor... doesn't.

Your hand is connected to your Braces which are connected to your Sleeves which are connected to your Chainmail which is connected to your Breatplate which is connected to your Neck.

You basically just paint yourself and this can look really awful when there is no depth or layering definition in the armor. My neck looks like it's stiched to my Chest armor.

I have a dream.

That one day my armor won't be connected to my skin and will stick out a little bit at least, that one day some equipment will have multiple layers so the straps won't be the same layer as the armor and the Plate Will be in front of the Chain Mail and that the Fur won't be stitched to my neck

    The other horrible thing about armors is that the elbow piece, hip flaps, and shield are not physically connected to the rest of the armor. They stick out quite a bit and you can see a huge gap between your character's armor and those pieces.

    Yeah, I don;t mind the hip flaps so much byt some of the shoulders can just be seen visibly floating above the amor,

    Personally I think the Dark Elf Heavy Armor looks like trash and needed redoing more than the Orc And Redguard.

    I agree with the OP and I actually posted about this in a thread a while back. I'll just quote myself instead of digging up an old thread. It's not exactly what you're saying but it's related.
    I feel that the "breast mounds" they have on the female versions of breastplate look like they'd get in the way and hinder you more than help. Also with ESO chest and leg armour, I almost feel like my character is having the armour integrated into the skin or the skin is replaced by an "armour look". I understand that's what's technically happening, but it looks kinda cheap-ish, lol.

    Maybe it's easier to understand what I'm saying with an image. Even though the proportions of the created character are fine when imagined naked, I think all armour should have a default "slimness"; this character below looks like she's wearing a metal corset in which case all you could do was stand and not breathe never mind battle, lol.

    For whatever it's worth, the armor coming with the IC is a good deal bulkier than the stuff in game now. I'm not sure if that's going to feed back into other styles, as updates are handed down. But... there is some cause for hope.

    The body paint armor is one of ESO's biggest weaknesses. I already ranted about it during the Beta but sadly not many cared.
    It looks very fun how heavy armor behaves when your character breathes or makes emotes. It suddenly becomes as flexible as cloth :D

    I think it's just laziness so they don't have to do actual models for the armor and can instead just copy and paste skins on to Body Types.

    It's weird; plate mail that folds and moves when I breathe ... and Imperial paudrons floating around that are bigger than my characters head

    If only it could somehow be averaged
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Some of the new alliance armors already have designs that incorporate more layers/less painted on pieces. If they keep on designing armors the way they designed the alliance armors, then we will have layers yet.
    ESO is a wide and varied game. Always remember it is an RPG at heart. Not WoW, not GW2, this is the Elder Scrolls.
