We got our first glimpse of the alternate skins for the Summoner

Door #1

Door #2

Door #3

Door #4

Oh I am so overjoyed by these, right now I torn between whats behind Door #2 and Door #3. I love the styling for #3 a little more; but #2 comes with a hood, I been aching for a vampire skin that includes a hood for a long time.

They're all amazing (<3 Eric), but the second variant is my favourite at the moment.

The colouring on the fourth one (in-game) is gorgeous, can't wait for everyone to get to see and play them!

They all look great ... it's hard to choose a favorite. Crossing my fingers to see them in-game soon!

Fantastic work! :)

I know, feel the same way! All the skins are great, but just like you I always wanted a hooded/cloaked character in this game so it makes it really hard to decide between all of those skins. Hopefully there'll be a video demo that'll show them all in action, but if anything I think it'll make choosing even harder :p

If you could sabotage the policies and push out a sneaky patch for a few days without telling Square Enix about it - I'm sure we won't mind a patch and a rollback in that scenario :p Also, more players to test match-making because of the hype, what do you say? ;)

Any possibility we can see these skins in another demo before hand?

The skins are pretty cool. I think no 4 is the nicest, but I'm also really fond of the default (this is often the case for me).

The only thing that makes me sad is that the Summoner is getting all the attention and the Deceiver doesn't have his evolved skin yet D:

I really love the Summoner skins, all of them are so cool! *_* But I have the same concern! Already the other vampire classes have their adult skin since long time ago, and poor Deceiver has nothing until Open Beta. At least a teaser, please? D:

We definitely haven't forgotten about the Deceiver's evolved skin, trust us... Consider yourself teased :)

Wait, what?
Does that mean... we're getting it this patch? (refer-a-friend, etc) :worship:

Oh gosh, no not in the next patch, he just likes to tease :)

We'll share a proper teaser with you guys soon, but yes, that skin is still coming!

It's kindof overkill to tease about upcoming teasers. :rolleyes:

To be honest I'm very happy with amount of stuff that is upcoming, so I'll even take your "teaser about a teaser" :)

Refer-a-friend and daily rewards > matchmaking goodies info > Deceiver Evolved skin teaser > more Summoner details > potential The Crucible teaser / artwork > did I forget anything?

While some people might say the game still has a few crucial issues to address - I'm personally very happy thinking about how much content is going to be coming out in the next couple of months. Not to mention that apart from the announced items I'm sure we'll be getting plenty of surprises (like the upcoming patch).

Really looking forward watching this game get ready for open beta :)

Human evolved skins and new human class. Telling us whether they will second generation skins or the salvaged/inherited armor of ancient warriors would make a great hint.

They did this for the Summoner class as well. :nut:

Any way we got the names of these skins and their background lore, I am most interested in which one belongs to those who served as Kain's personal guard?

Variant #2 are the Robes of the Imperial Guard.

No problem. For the record, the base and variant skin names / descriptions are as follows:


Summoner Armor – “Protective gear fashioned for the soul-wrights of the Melchahim”
Gilded Corpse – “Only in death is there true beauty”
Robes of the Imperial Guard- “Armor forged for Melchahim recruits to Kain's personal guard”
Melchahim Platemail – “Centuries-old armor in the traditional style of Clan Melchahim”
Ghoul-caller's Mantle – “Robes favored by specialists in the summoning of predators from the Underworld”

HA! Nice, thanks for teasing us further with those :)

What I noticed:
Gilded Corpse – “Only in death is there true beauty”
Im not a native speaker, so is this some kind of fancy sophisticated old writer's english or should it be "their"?

I think it's the same as "There is only true beauty in death". If I've understood it correctly, it's a quote from the summoners about the place (or state of being) where beauty is to be found rather than a statement about the summoners themselves.

PapaLegba stole my thunder. He's a thunder-thief.

Yes, as Vampmaster says, it refers to true beauty only existing in death.

After seeing the skins on the Developer's stream I have finally decided on a skin. I wish we could have seen the Ghoul-caller's Mantle in the stream, but we will soon enough. As much as I really, really like the hood on the Imperial Robes, I gotta go with the Platemail. The shade of green makes her look like a jade statue, complete with a bow on top; and that face looks like something straight out of Phantom of the Opera, but better because it has black tears.

The default one looks the most appealing to my eye. But that's the beauty of these different skins, they all have their own charme and there's something for everyone.
