Overlarge weapons and shields?

    Who's idea was it to go back to the oversize weapons and shields for this Expac?

    If we wanted to play WoW or a Korean RPG title, we wouldn't be playing Everquest. Overlarge weapons and ornaments look silly and are not immersive.

    The art department has been making some strange choices as of late.

    Well, they would make sense for giants, but they don't all drop from giants so, not sure ~

    bid shields are cool but the huge axe heads with the broom stick handles are lame

    I don't see the problem.


    Then again, I can't see much of anything over this shield!

    As someone who plays with old models I always use a smaller shield ornament. Shields should not look like I’m carrying a garage door on my arm.

    To whoever designed those...you appear to be compensating for something.

    If I remember correctly one of the caster / priest shields from beta was the size of a dinner plate when worn. It seems to go from one extreme to the other. Personally I liked the oversized tank shields but I'm sure It would get old quick If I had to deal with it all the time. Break out the ornaments!

    They need to name one "The Door"

    I like big shields and I cannot lie.

    More silliness for the Monty Python constable.

    Who on the design team thought that was a good idea, and who approved it?

    Maybe we need more OGR, TRL, BAR only items.
