Grand Overlord outfit

can the Devs make outfits that are awarded to pvp players that make Grand Warlord and Grand Overlord? We worked hard to achieve these ranks and it would be only logical that a costume would be awarded for this achievement. After all pve players get costumes up to co 160 the imperial chancellor outfit.

    That would be awesome! I'd love a costume to show off my rank (assuming I ever get it lol). I mean, there is an Emperor costume, but as a healer it's a bit harder for me to obtain than, say a Grand Overlord costume I can eventually get through normal play. Like, it's the highest rank you can obtain normally, so we should get something special for it.

    Adding another art asset that will add even more client stutter to cyrodiil doesn't seem like a good pvp reward.

    Stutter? That’s that?

    An option to force(only you see) everyone wear depending on their cyro rank & armor material would be nice. Low ranks will wear garbage uniform, mids will be nice looking, top ranks will wear alliance motif. This may improve performance.

    Ban all costumes, outfits, motifs from cyrodiil?

    I'd be all for that. ZOS has added way too many cosmetics. Gameplay is more important than aesthetics. It's not like anyone should care about how one is dressed in a pvp zone anyway.

    For many the RPG in a MMORPG includes aesthetics just as much as allocating skill points and making decisions without real consequences in some side quest. So I doubt the player base would overall be happy about that.

    + I wasn't around at that time but from what I've read the performance went down after the "lightning patch", where they added some FX (and cheating prevention or do I mix this up?). A costume more or less shouldn't put the main strain on the server. They aren't the main culprits here.

    I'd rather have more (or new pvp titles that are not tied to alliance points or battlegrounds)

    All the pvp titles are dull and outdated. While there are some newer ones in battlegrounds, I can imagine theres a few people who prefer cyrodiil over bgs.

    The anti-bot/cheat code is a myth and the changes made to lighting in 2014 aren't at all relevant to any performance issues today. I'm also not describing server-side lag, but stress on the client.

    The problem with art assets is that the game can't hold all art assets in memory at one time. So it is constantly managing assets as other players come and go. The greater the variety, the more processing that is required.

    This adds a ton of client stutter in big fights in Cyrodiil. It's especially noticable when a large group arrives or leaves and area where one is fighting. This is the kind of client stutter that players complained about in busy PVE areas when Summerset was released last year.

    Cyrodiil would be better for everyone if ZOS reduced the number of styles/mounts/costumes available there. It would give us huge gains without losing anyone, because really, who cares what you look like in a pvp zone? Gah. ESO Players.......

    So the pvp players should only be allowed to wear their alliance outfits only? i.e daggerfall, Aldemeri and Ebonheart outfits purchased in the crown store? And only ride the alliance horse? That would def improve performance issues in pvp.

    I achieved Emperor on my healer necromancer not long ago, was easier than i thought it would be.

    It could be a trash can.

    It should be a giant Flava Flav clock @ 4:20 which represents that you consumed a lot of time to get the title as well as performance enhancers.

    I would support this. on my main toon, it took quite a while to get to level 50 as I'm not one of those who can get 10mil ap every 30 day camp. Level 47 and 49 outfits in addition to the dyes would be pretty cool. Hell an outfit for every rank would be pretty nice tbh. Have them be like the original motif progressions where the outfits get steadily nicer, more ornate, and also very different depending on your playstyle. You could totally make it a choice of mag LA, tanky HA, stealthy MA type costumes. This would give incentive to also pvp level mutliple toons who want to try and get all the outfit variations.

    I totally agree with the OP! I would say like the last 3 ranks should get costumes.

    I'm unsure, as a PvPer that prefers tactical / strategic play over AP farming dunno how healthy it would be. In the double AP events enough boosting goes on as it is.
    Loads got rank 50 in the first one just boosting through.

    It's like the PvEers that want to tick Emp off for that costume, just leads to nefarious play alot of the time

    Still, agree for the legit AR50s something nice would be nice.

    I was little annoyed during last year's Midyear Mayhem when many of the highly skilled b00stlings were flipflopping the district flags, I noticed suddenly many names on my guild rosters locating in Imperial City and also getting insane amounts of ap on leaderboards, suspicious perhaps. I wanted to go kill some district bosses for the event achievements, but decided I don't want to be anywhere near the cheaters...I mean skilled players and stayed away for whole event.

    Some cool looking Grand Overlord costume would be great, my plan was to get my third 5 star character this year slowly but surely, but that probably won't ever happen with my stuck account.

    As a legit pvp player it took me almost 2 years to reach Grand Overlord on my healbot so yea I get that. I work full time and can’t spend 24 hrs a day for 5 days in game to make emp. I remember the last event in pvp and it was so frickin laggy I didn’t even play, all those pve players just shooting for those sergeant and above titles to impress their guilds knowing that 1v1 against a real pvp player would be certain death.

    More PVP costumes would be a nice perk for PVP'ers, and the art department no doubt could do a great one.

    But I share Beardimus' reservations about the side-effects these things cause when people go achievement hunting. The Gladiator proofs have been a nice addition that could be expanded. Perhaps include the chance for proofs in RftW containers..
