No, sadly there is no in-game way of previewing armor before you buy it, so you need to look it up on the wiki. It has fully body shots of most of the armor sets as well as back and partial shots, so it works fairly well.

Yes, you can! And thankfully, you can preview the effects of the dye before you actually dye the armor. You can also combine different colors to come up with different hues and whatnot.

Personally, I could care less about showing off to other people. For me, it's all about looking good. If I'm going to be staring at an avatar for many hours at a time, it better well damn look good to me.

Thanks! And yeah, Istani armor doesn't have an elite counterpart. Sunspear armor does, however. I have it on my elementalist character and I would show it to you if I wasn't posting from work. :S

Energy Storage is the Elementalist class Primary Attribute, meaning only Elementalists have access to it. As you level up, make sure you distrubute your attribute points accordingly (K key). The more points you have in Energy Storage, the bigger your energy pool will be. Most elementalists put a ton into Energy storage and a ton into whatever element they specialize in (predominantly fire, with a fair few earth eles).




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me
