I think it is good that the different tiers are not too different from each other, so that they can be combined. Having said that, I would love to see several more new sets (both crafted blue and epic) that had different, preferably Cimmerian look and which had good enough stats to make them worthwhile alternative to current crafted blues/epics. Of course stats should be a bit different so that they would not be just copies of the current sets.
i would not want the tier gear to differ to much from each other since there probably will be getting them one by one they should match each other. The problem is that they dont differ much from tier to tier but what differs is the collor, the ranger gear aint that bad, but take for example the hox epic gear for 3-4 months i ran around with the green t1 chest and the blue t2 pants, this looked extremely stupid, it shouldnt be that way.
The ranger is probably one of the clases where this is not much of a problem but i think funcom should start keeping the collor themes from one tier to the next and change the real design of the armor making them matchable but still making the t3 sets look more powerful than t2
Its looks fantastic no doubt, but there should diffrent and unique styles for every teir. We are just seeing some new parts and a few textures upgrades, its a shame. I really hope that when teir 4 is released (some day) we see a completly new ranger look and not these small upgrades...considering the time needed to actually get the sets.
