Or Shadow versions of anything. I want players to tell me and Mods what they would want for "Shadow" versions of things in the store. I apologize is there if already a shadow idea thread, I didn't see one when I searched for it.

This is what I'd want:

Shadow Attuned Nex Outfit
The Shadow Nex costume should only be the attuned version, but costs the same as the non shadow version that has 2 costume variants. The attuned version is the better looking version anyway, and for players (like me) struggling to get Nex kills, this could be a alternative to getting a Nex costume.

I envision the Shadow Nex costume having brass/ gold colored armor instead of silver, and black/ dark grey skin instead of red. Yellow eyes instead of green, and feather colors could be lighter grey and dark grey or maybe something unexpected like dark grey/ a type of tan.

There could also be a
Shadow Attuned KBD Outfit
It's already pretty dark, so instead of going darker maybe it should mimic a colored dragon or even a white dragon.

Shadow Nomad
It would only have the clothing and staff override, but not the walk animation. This is so it could be cheaper. The shadow version could be black with dark green patterning or just black/ dark grey/ light grey.

This is what I mainly want for new shadow outfits. What do you guys want? What would make a fabulous shadow version? Should we have new categories of shadow items like shadow pets? Or do you want the return of the old shadow items?

Let me know, love to hear it!

EDIT**
I have made a drawing of these three costumes and sent them to the MTX team via twitter. Im not the best artist, but I hope it shows how awesome the colors would look.

Are there going to be any new shadow series costumes or items?

Mod Sayln: There will be, and as per all other Shadow items, they’ll be limited edition! So keep your eyes peeled!

I see how your idea about inverting the colors of KBD works, more or less like the "shiny" pokémon and I quite like it, it'd make a nice addition.

Personally the old shadow outfits should be brought back, a lot of people weren't around when they were out for that very limited time slot thus couldn't obtain it, and it's leaving a large ugly empty patch in my cosmetics list.

Other than that, what about Shadow Ports? Seeing as it's an on-going theme at the moment a Shadow Eastern/Western Captain/Crew bundle could be quite nice.


In the drawing I made I tried making the KBD heads more ghostly- I decided to have them based on revenant dragons. So all three heads are off white with red eyes and red smokey effects coming from them.

I also think that the limited edition shadow series should come back. I don't like limited time stuff anyway, and there would be a big demand for them.

I never thought of shadow port outfits- THAT could actually be very cool. Maybe they could twinge the costumes a little bit so they're a little piratey too. Like adding a skull button in a hat along with making them black.

Thank you for the response and ideas! Some of the MTX team liked the shadow series idea, but that's not a guarantee it'll be made. Perhaps if this thread gets enough attention, it might :)

Thank you for all the ideas everyone!

Shadow elemental armors appeal to me because I never liked the originals and making shadow versions could improve them.

I fear though in the future more of the shadow sets will be limited time. The shadow drake is limited time and has sold immensely, so this gives the MTX team incentive to make more limited time items.

Who knows when they'll be coming, but there are coming in some form!

Can't wait to see what they are :)

Just pointing out that the Nomad pack has no teleport animation, so I wonder why you added that in the first post.

But a shadow nomad pack would sound cool.


Sorry about that, I probably meant walking animation. I'll go fix it up front.
