As a master, I’d be in favor of seeing some vanity items for the top tiers. Some awe inspiring effects or access to items that let every body who sees you know even from a distance “we got us a bad ass over here”. Perhaps unique weapon or tool modifyers with neat particle effect only available to them. Maybe a unique block to crown their builds with?
Vanity is a great way to reward backers without breaking game balance, and it should not be to hard to do. If you are going to use the GW2 color system maybe special backer colors and so on would be cool too.
Oh and maybe add something like design a creature or design a monument/structure to the Oortian.
When I discussed this issue with James in the past he said they dont want to do physical goods because of the time and money, and it’s only for a few.
Which really means it would have to be in game. The problem with in game stuff. Is that its really hard to convince someone to cough up that much without having it effect game balance. Which personally I don’t want to see. The beacon bonus is already pushing the bounds in my mind. I realize those interested in PVE could careless, but those that do plan for PVP don’t want to hear ■■■■ like whaaa your a Master…
yeah i know what you mean cause i wouldnt like to be there new to the game wanting to pvp but then this oortian comes over with boss limited to that rank weaponry which is over powered, as that would be unfair
