I’m sure now Conan is very proud of the game but the feature of visible sheathed weapons is a must for a brutal setting like Conan’s universe.
Probably I’m only nostalgic from the times of Age Of Conan, when my conqueror walked around with his greatsword shining on his back, but that feature would revolution the way we look at our and other PGs, I’m sure about that. I think watching at other players and seeing all their different styles and choises of equipment gives an atmosphere of roleplay, adventure, exploration, adrenaline. But that does not stop at armors: players get a totally different shape/look/personality with their weapons on their back, which talks alone and incutes fear/security in other minds!
I’m sure you Funcom team already know how to implement a feature like this since that was very present in AoC. In Conan Exiles, where we got up to 8 item slots, they could make a special slot (slot 1?) which shows the weapon/tool. I hope I’m not the only one wanting those epic and awesome visible sheated weapons in future. What you guys think?
