...Ugly?

Like, dont get me wrong, the masterwork armor looks amazing.

But..when I compare it to concept, which looks so badass and crazy good... ( https://i.imgur.com/latyYUe.jpg )

...but then you see the helmet, which honestly looks like a better detailed Iron helm ( https://i.imgur.com/3Imqnwv.png )

Not to nitpick, but I wish the mouth guard was pulled out juuusst a bit to give it curve rather than it being squished in, or the top of the helmet had more detail. Maybe I'm being too cynical, but I really wished it looked like the concept than what we got

Concepts always look better than the final product. Technical problems, clipping during animations, final size limits, and other factors tend to decrease the overall quality of the final design that's added to the game. RuneScape is not unique with this type of issue.

^ So lame.

OP, if you make a suggestion in the suggestion forum to change the model to the concept art you will get my support!

Have you tried adding spikes to your masterwork?


Yep! I added it, but the helmet still just feels off to me :/

Normally I'd agree since this is the case for a lot of games, but they've been hitting the nail on the head with previous armors. Like, Aetherium for example. Imo, they nailed the look perfectly. I'd even say they made it better looking. Necrite, Elite serenic, GWD 2 armor all transitioned perfectly as well from concept to final release.

But, masterwork, its like they stopped when they reached the helm. Theres no way I can clipping being an issue, not when a large majority of helmets are much bigger and dont face issues. The detail alone feels a bit lazy, like they just took an iron helmet and extruded some polygons and called it a day.

I'm not picky with stuff usually, hence why this is my only post regarding armor looks, but tier 92 armor should look bad ass, not half assed
