The community has asked and waited for this since the beginning, and when it finally comes it’s quite a let down. I mean, there are mods out there for years that did a better job than this.
Pass the bugs, I’ve played CE since day one of EA and I’m used to bugs, what I really find mind blowing in this case are the design choices
1- any change you make at the mirror is instantly applied and irreversible. In few words you cannot try anything. If this was a model of bugfree game I could maybe condone such a cheap and short sighted design choice, but seriously? If one has the unexpectedly bad idea to touch the race slider, or if their cat does it for them by stepping on their keyboard, the character body gets reset forever and there is no way to revert it back.
2- what’s the reasoning behind leaving out the page for the body sliders? I’m really curious to know it, if there is one, that is. You can change anything except ■■■, you can become a pale skinned Nordheimer when you have been an ebony jewel of the Black Kingdoms for years and yet you can’t adjust your height, muscular weight and other popular sliders like bits and bobs? I mean, all of these are even natural changes that could occur in a character lifetime, unlike a race change.
I thought the point of this feature was to give us a chance to recustomize our characters after creation, but the result is that now we have a fairly high chance to irreversibly screw them for good. Myself, I’ll be stuck with a muscular body builder woman character (the default…) forever unless Funcom gives this stuff another look, including the bugs because in 2 minutes toying with the mirror, aside from ■■■■■■■■ up what I considered the most important part of my char looks, I’ve found an unprecedented amount of bugs.
In conclusion the mirror feature IMHO should have two simple additions:
1- temporary changes with a save function (it’s that function you expect to find after you use the edit one)
2- the body tab added like at character creation
But yeah, I blame myself for being naive and not see this coming. Should have not rushed to the mirror and gone fishing instead.
