    "Everyone liked the elf hat bug, so can you please put it back?
    Unfortunately, we are not able to bring back the hat bug. I don’t know about you but when I wear my robe and wizard hat I kind of like to show them off.
    -Adida"


    Not "Everyone" enjoyed it, however, I was one that did like the hat bug. It was nice not having to look at some of these god awful looking masks on your Elven characters and being allowed to enjoy the Elven Hairstyles instead.
    Maybe they should take a look into this and give it as an option:
     Headgear Visible
     Headgear Not Visible

    You guys do know that circlets are available through the blacksmith crafting menue and imbuing can turn a circlet into whatever you want, mods wise. Well, pretty much. *shrugs*

    *edit* and, yes, they do med.

    virtues=soooooon

    *shakes head* I dunno this team seems pretty creative, and we have already duplicated many of the more popular virtue effects through new spells. Personally I am for scrapping this system and starting over with a system that lends meaning to the game and the characters that work to advance within the system.

    Time will tell, maybe.

    if elves can hide their hats then shouldn't humans be able to as well? face it, it made no sense whatsoever. it was a bug, it is now fixed. if looks are that important, then don't wear a silly-lookin' hat.

    I can't help wondering when the 'hats don't show on elves' went from being a deliberate design decision to a bug.

    I know I'm getting old and senile, but I do distinctly remember us being told they were that way on purpose.

    I hated how the elves hid the hats, but I can't say I'm really opposed to it if people wanted to hide it.

    I didn't mind one way or the other - till my tamer started wearing the jester hat of chuckles, then I was rather glad it showed as a circlet :D

    Between circlets and the gargoyle race, there are ways to keep one's face uncovered. If you are wearing a heavy piece of headgear, it is because you have chosen that function is more important than appearance ... which to me says the way things are implemented now is the right way, no option/toggle required.

    Couldn't one use a macro to equip/unequip their hat/helm? That is what I do with helms. I throw it on when I need it's protection. With my Mage and Pirate the hat fits the character so it is not a concern.

    Personally I always disliked how the hats/helms did not show on elves. I think the circlets look goofy, but I don't see why a show/hide headgear option could not be added. There are other games that include this very option.

    Heck yes! I am so sick and tired of hearing people tell me I can just craft a stinking circlet....

    BULL ROAR! I can't I wear the Hunters Headdress... lets see you make a Circlet with those mods...

    Can't...

    And I HATE seeing my character with a dead deer on his head... I liked seeing his white hair...

    Shoot can't even see his hair with that ugly pos on his head. And my other tamer HATES having that silly ninja hood on... I miss my elves looking like elves...


    As for the other BS I seem to recall being told that the supposed hat "BUG" was a "feature" of being elven... I feel ripped off.

    So DEV's since you took one of my racial features away I insist you give us a new one like .... increased accuracy afterall I have way better eyes and ears than humans and gargoyles therefore I should have higher HC perhaps only applied in dungeons where it is dark but.... I think that would make up for taking away one of my other "bonus's"...

    DUH!

    If you allow trade up, you'll have all the people with older accounts buying up early vet rewards and trading them in for better ones to sell. Imagine buying a dragon statuette for 100k and trading it in for lets say, the house teleporter...

    ... Huge profit.

    I would also like to have the option to show a circlet on my elven characters rather than some ugly headpiece. Now my elven characters look pretty much like the human ones other than the weird color of their skin and hair. Won't be saving any more ugly headpieces anymore because I could always use them on the elves. Now they'll just end up unraveled or trashed.

    I guess the ONE good thing to come out of this change is no longer having to look at the truly ugly elven versions of most of the wooden and metal helmets. An old guildmate gave them a very unflattering name that unfortunately came to mind every time I saw one of them. Guess I don't have to worry as much about that anymore. Too bad they didn't see fit to change the Darkwood Helm to something less ugly. That whole suit is just hideous.

    I hope they bring up turning off decay when they discuss virtues. There is a difference between being a knight of a virtue and a slave to it.

    Yep... strange that this seems to be a novel solution to some, but I'm with you here... When I want to see my hair, I take off my hat. I also, when I'm sitting comfortably somewhere, also try to remember to take off my spellbook and my shield too. hehe

    I'm with ya on this one too.

    Bleh... I think they're silly in other games too though. Only thing I'd say about that is it should only affect the person's client-side perception of themselves. If someone really is wearing a dead deer on their head, I want to know it, simply because it tells me what I'm up against.

    I'd like to see the option as well - as my elves wear Leather Ninja Hoods, because they were the easiest to craft with good bonuses (in fact, the ones I wear were done with HORNED runics), and didn't show up on my elf Tamer's head.

    As I am slow-training imbue (like every other skill - the only times I have done fast-gain methods were to record gain logs for the Craftsman forums for Blacksmithing, and even then split it over 4 characters to do 100-120 in 5 point steps), it will probably be this time next year when I can imbue a circlet worth mentioning...

    A simple toggle would seem to be the way to go it would give everyone what they want. If they do this though it might as well be for all gear, or implement something where you could where a set for show and a set for stats.

    However, instead of complaining about whether headgear should show on an elf or not lets talk about the worst answer given in today's FOF.

    In other words: "We will fix the codex so it will redeed, but for all you that lost yours sorry you are SOL."
