Welcome Travelers to day six of the Ceaseless, 9 day, Super Hype Week, Patch Spectacle*TM! If you are just joining us this week, be sure to check out all of our Depths of Eterra announcements over the past five days (links below!).
The Depths of Eterra update is continuing to add distinct armor designs for each of the classes, improving the feeling of progression and unique identity. Check out some of the awesome new looks coming into Eterra!
The Acolyte’s new set takes a lightweight approach to a gothic, demonic, and ragged theme - it pairs perfectly with some of our new darker-themed catalysts revealed on the weekend. In order to achieve a realistic result of the different layers of clothes in game, we had to use a combination of simulating the fabric in 3D and manual sculpting.
Our new mid-tier Rogue armor set takes on the soul of an outlaw. Its open design leaves mobility completely unhindered, while providing heavier protection while in marksman stance at range - protecting the side profile of the shooter.
Also, check out that hat. That is going to be a popular hat.
Our endgame ready high-tier Sentinel set showcases a beautiful combination of battle-scarred plate and white wolf fur. We would like to believe the fur adds an element of comfort here for our Sentinel’s journey, but how comfortable can you really be in the Depths of Eterra?
The biggest challenge here was bringing together the technical challenges of fur and hard-surface materials into one unified piece.
This concludes day six of the Continuing, 9 day, Super Hype Week, Patch Spectacle*TM. Make sure to check back in tomorrow for the deeper dive on the Arena Champions being introduced in the Depths of Eterra update.
