First post, I’ve been playing CE literally since day one of Early Access.
I was really excited when I saw the cosmetic DLC announcement, that sort of thing is, in my opinion, the best way of providing DLC. Optional, cosmetic only items, no pay to win.
I think Funcom delivered.
I was going to write up detailed critiques of each element of the DLC (weapons, armour, warpaint, placeables and building pieces) but when I started to do so it basically boiled down to “I really loved it, give me more”.
Everything is really beautiful, especially the building pieces, and I love that we got some more art objects to scatter around the inside of our bases. The armour is all gorgeous, and good enough to wear most of the time when not PVPing or raiding a dungeon.
The only issues I have are:
-The weapons are too underpowered to really be worth using, even as a PVE builder. I want to kill things as fast as possible to get back to harvesting. They don’t have to be flawless quality but they seem to be worse even than the regular tiers.
-No Khitan style bed, seems a bit of an odd thing to include
-Can’t place many objects on the Khitan table, no notes or papyrus scrolls.
So all in all I’m really happy with the DLC, and I’m looking forward to future DLC packs. But I hope there is a decent amount of time between them because I’m going to need a lot of time to harvest all the stuff I need for a big Khitan style base.
