Special Robes, Shoes and Hats - No longer availabl
I am hoping that some one has an answer or explaination -

I have noticed that some players have "Special" Hats, Robes and Shoes that have stars and moons and such on them that provide some pretty awesome spells (Helephant, Triton and Dryad).

I was told that these items are no longer available at all, not even in mob or boss drops, is this correct..??

If this true, how can that be fair for players that joined once they decided to discontinue these items..??

Thanks

Just as fashions change, so do Wizard clothes. The 'stars and moons' pattern is so last year.

We are constantly updating and changing the fashions to meet the times. Old items may come back around in rotation as part of a retro look, but if you see something you like in the store, buy it now before it is gone.

Gamma - I can understand the change in the "fashion" in a sense, but nothing comperable in a new "fashion" has been added to replace the abilities that the special attire had to offer some of the newer players. To my knowledge they are not even offered as boss or mob drops.

Please change "fashion" as you seem fit, but at least offer comperable items in replace of the "old style" for players that did nopt make the scene in time to benefit from it.

I see it as extreamly unfair, my friend is a lower level than me and got the triton robe ( lvl35+ item ) and i have the currently helephant robe ( lvl45+ item ) and his triton robe has better stats ALL OVER and a better card than my helephant robe that is a higher level. I could care less about new items i want current items stats to be higher than lower level items.This seems foolish a lvl35 item is much stronger than a level45?!?!?

I do agree that the "new clothes" that are being offered isn't the best as far as what was taken away.I was hoping that when the clothes was offered finally in DS i was very disapointed and went back to MS to stock up on more clothes only to find they too were replaced by weaker clothes.To say the least it was a sad day for me.

I will agree on that. I wish they also would bring back the old gear. But, one of the moderators here did say they could be coming back from time to time, so lets just hope that happens sooner than later.

I personally do not think that is fair because just because some people think those special clothing items our out of style some people who have recently joined can not wear them and they like those clothes!

I think its unfair cause i bought a shirt in mb after the update
my friend had a shirt from kt before the update... both were the attack styles... let me tell you the difference. :-D ... D:<

accuracy- mine - 2% lower - to her's
strength - mine- 4% lower - to her's

it went on with defense and pips and health too! and it gave better cards!

Change "Fasion" all you want but keep the cloths the same, it isnt fair to people that work for their gold and then all the sudden the items change before they can buy the item they worked for, for so long
it happended to me on my life, all i wanted was the helping hand hat and they changed it the day after i got enough money to buy it :-(

and also plz put the special items back on sell for gold! not all of us can afford to buy crowns

I was saving up for the ice shield outfit in DS, but ever since the bogus updates all the card clothes are gone. You can still but them for crowns but not everyone can affort a monthly subscription AND a million crowns. I don't know about you guys, but Wizard101 is just digging for gold.

I agree that they should bring it back, I remember when all the crown items could be bought with gold. I wanted them but they were to much money. They should bring them back and sell them for gold, because my Balance probably has enough to buy crown gear with gold.

I think thats a rumor just like the Jade oni drops a pet I have never seen anyone with a jade Oni pet that wasnt crown bought :-( other and anyone that i ask about the old crown gear says they bought it. I really hope they make it available some time again at least a week or a day maybe put it in crown shop as special or some thing like they did with the dragon blade

Re: Special Robes, Shoes and Hats - No longer availabl
Things change in games, that's a fact in all games. In a game with this type of payment system, if they aren't making a certain amount from the games, they change things.

Not going to get into the how and why's. If something is only crowns now and could be gotten with gold before, then you can rest assured that too many people were using gold to get it.

I'm going to refrain from getting on my soapbox. I was lucky and bought some of that old gear when it was available. My level 50 wizzy still wears some some of that level 35 gear. The stuff available now just doesn't compare, unless I want to shell out twice as much money as I paid for the set I have now.
