Inspired by an exchange with Crucis and Kaigen42 over here, I figured I'd open a thread to discuss the best-looking equipment in Pillars of Eternity.

 

Sanguine Plate

 

Looks amazing on human/elven female characters.

Argwes Adra

 

Nothing says "I'm stylish" like a plate whose name I can't spell.

Sun Something Mail

 

... unless it's a chain mail whose name I can't even remember.

Looks good on Edér too:

Coat of Ill Payment

 

Oh, yes...

White Knight, FTW

 

The Dunryd Demon helmet adds to the cool factor.

Autumn Something Something

 

Nothing says "I killed an innocent dragon-slayer!" like wearing this armor.

The Funky Green Chain Mail

 

All your friends will be green with envy.

Vengiatta Rugia

 

With a dandy hat for extra style.

Aru-Brakr

 

Not sure how to spell this either.

Pallegina's Breastplate.

Party Selfie at Night

...I absolutely love this specific set of Dyrwoodan Clothing: http://pillarsofeter...woodan_Clothing. Every playthrough I unhelpfully watch from the sidelines as Egdrang and Tily get murdered by Xaurips at Anslog's Compass just to get 2 sets of it without having to kill anyone myself!! I regret nothing!!!

I like the way the Berathian priest robes look on my cipher.  I like how they look on my monk too but they weren't sturdy enough for my PotD run.. :(

Weird. I'm using dropbox to store them. Perhaps I'll add links tomorrow, so people who can't see the pictures over here can click the link and see them on dropbox.

You're linking to something that isn't the direct image. The forum will only embed direct image links using forum BBCode. ( IMG tags around a link that ends in the image extension, like http-whatever-com/image.jpg
 
When I try to go directly to the link you're using, it gives me a Dropbox-403 error page and tells me I'm not signed into dropbox and can't view it.

I've just amended the link to the Argwes Adra picture. If it works (i.e. you guys can see it), I will amend all others in the same way. If not, looks like I'll have to use a different host.

Still can't see it. original.gif
 
Googling around this seems to be an issue with Dropbox - the "share link" is not a true img. link, but rather some kind of framed page reference, even if the url you initially see in dropbox appears to be one... did you try adding ?raw=1 after the link you're trying to use? That's the only fairly recent solution I saw with a quick Google.
 
...at any rate, if you can't figure it out at dropbox, imgur is probably the easiest for occasionally sharing image files on forums. When you upload on imgur you can just r-click to View Image and get the direct link that way.

Use imgur or some other thing, yes - dropbox is often iffy.

Which one is that and where do I get it? I'm looking for something proper for my melee cipher with below 30% speed red.

 

BTW, sorry but I got to add, everything related to gear in this game, from looks to stats, is donkey sh*t bad. 1/10.

Feedback for Obsidian

(in case they're reading this)

 

  • Thanks for making a game in which women in armor don't appear half-naked with barely a stripe of metal on their breasts and one on their genitals. Hallelujah!
  • What the expansion really needs to bring to the table now is a kick-ass black full plate, with spikes and gothic ornaments (or maybe one that looks like Sarevok's from BG1—always loved his black plate.) We have a white knight armor; now we need a black knight one ;)
  • PoE does helmet/headgear design better than most games, but most headgear in the game is the same silver/metal color. Nothing wrong with some realism but, as shown above, most endgame suits of armor in the game are colored (red, gold, green, even blue.) For the expansion we need some unique headgear that matches these armor in color and can be used in conjuction with them (right now I'd rather wear no headgear and give up on the bonuses than to wear something that doesn't match my armor's color/design.)

Coat of Ill Payment looks good. The Plates are alright. My party wouldn't be caught Unconscious in some of those psychedelic armored t-shirts, though. I think Ixamitl Clothing looks cute on females, with those little red and white shoes.

 

Since the original post mentions equipment in general, it would be interesting to hear of attractive weapons, capes/cloaks (are there any?) etc.

It's simple leather armor with no enchantments (the 03 variant I believe, iirc the worn has also the same model) and it's random loot. Textures are a lot sharper on the male model tho.

This is what I was thinking too.  One of those simple leather armors actually looks pretty sharp.

 

Much as I like many of the armors in the game in terms of looks, it'd be nice if there was at least one or two leather and/or padded armors that was less ostentatious and more suited to a seriously stealthy thieving rogue, rather than a flashy, stylish dandy of a rogue.  Preferably in dark colors, with a good, dark enchanted (with a decently thematic effect) hood.   Hopefully providing a look similar to the pic that you posted earlier.

It is one of the bounties, although right now I can't quite recall which one.
