They mentioned being able to get a refund if we purchased the other set. Any word on how to go about that?

Support ticket…go to their forums/news pages and click “support” up at the top of the page then get in line. I thought we were getting a new skin, or at least something MUCH more in line with the human t3, not…this… And all because some whiners who didn’t drop any real money on it, and who also have ZERO issues with an asuran npc wearing their sacred w/e blah blah happy crystal holding rainbow claptrap SPECIAL armor (Lies)… Yea, they messed up bad putting the original in the gem store, but they messed up far, far worse now by keeping the real money and only offering the chance to get screwed again if you don’t like the rather lazy thing they did with it. Also, those new weapons…seriously? I been sweating this change for months, turns out I got screwed and obviously their art dept was busy on something more important than what people already paid for. GG

I agree, the only reason I bought this in the first place was because of the skin. I play a few hours a night so I consider myself a bit more than a casual player and I am NOT spending 100+ GP on cultural armor that is essentially just a skin. To many people bitching about it ruined it for everyone else..

Its just puzzling to me that this is the same art team that gave us the Phoenix, Magitech, Braham’s and Aetherblade armors, as well as the Zodiac, Dragon’s Jade and Aetherized weapon skins. Its not “the norm” so I guess I’m not all that upset, but that just makes it harder to understand.

Well, some people like them I guess.

Yeah a refund would be nice but I want my T3 exotics back too. I’m not deleting my full exotic set so they refund 800 gems.
People had to whine about it looking like cultural didn’t they? Damn them! I skinned my full T3 cultural set because I thought this looked a little nicer.

They never said that we would have to delete our armor. They have the items in the Trading Post now where you can separate an item from a skin so it stands to reason they can just change to the default skin.

I did the refund when they made the gathering tools account bound I had to delete my other 7 soul bound sets in order to receive the refund. As for the armor I don’t know and I’m forking out the money to buy stones when I purchased the set I wanted and they changed it.

I thought it could be worse but it is not bad at all. On the Female model. And I’m not surprised it will be a re-skin.

well i play active for around 8-9 months (mainly dungeons/fractals but not only) including dailies/monthlies/living story and some pvp. im lamost at 8k. if i were achi hunting, id be aroudn 10k. its stil quite far to 21k…so we got to play few years to get a damn boots skin?

Lol this is stupid. Not “all active people have 14k+”.
I only have 4k and i’m active, i just play most of my time in WvW and not rerolling and doing stupid shit like doing story quests for each race.

Heh… From one reskinned armor set to another. XD It does look pretty awesome though, and I think Feathered is a decent base armor set to use.

Not bad at all. Female could have a bit more armor: that’s a hell of a push-up bra. I love those hellfire boots!

People got pissed because it was a reskin of a race-restricted armor (human T3 cultural) rather than it being a reskin, hence they never took out the heavy and medium models.

Human and Norn females look good, the rest look bad. IMO anyway. Cool to see new Radiant and Hellfire gear. But those 21k achievement pts are gonna be nuts….

Anet: “We are so sorry about the reskined version of the T3 human armors. Now, let us make up to you by reskinning that reskin to another reskin.
Honestly, Anet, really? have your imagination and artistic sense have stooped to such contemptable bottom?

You’re making the same mistake as the one 2 posts down. They REPLACED a reskin with a resekin. And really, why did you expect something different.

1) The new Flamekissed pretty much had to be a reskin of an existing armour. If they gave light armour wearers a brand new set while medium and heavy were reskins, the outrage would have been deafening.

2) I personally think this looks better than the original version (base dye colours make a huge difference, it looks fantastic on a lot of the darker colours). It WILL be mine, oh yes! 🙂

3) Do you get both sets of boots at 21,000 AP or do you have to choose one?

I knew it ! I knew they were gonna make a full set 😀

I’m gonna use radiant on guardian and hellfire on necromancer 😀 amazeballs

So I got my gems refunded but I still have the skin…also this is an exact quote from the email…
“Thanks for getting in touch to discuss your concern related to the
Flamekissed Armor. As you know, the development team will be changing
the Flamekissed Armor in the future. In the meantime, we are happy to
accommodate your request.”

So they are reskinning it AGAIN?
