Older classes need visual updates

As much as I keep thinking about and wanting to try going back to some of the older classes I always get caught by how dated their heads look compared to newer classes. It's not the only visual aspect of them that feels left behind but it's a major one. Even newer heads from when the old classes got overhauled look bad compared to the newer classes... don't get me started on the "new" classes that came out before the overhauls, like Guardian, Nova, and Hashasin. They're even more outdated looking. One advantage the older classes do have though is the greater level of variation with body sliders at least. It's disappointing that the legs have to be so thin on newer female classes just as an example.

Older classes could also benefit from some updates to their animations like their running animation and combat animations as well. Of course any updates should stay faithful to original appearance but they need to be looked at for sure. Honestly I think the game as a whole is starting to really need to be updated visually but at least for now it'd be nice to just have some character appearance updates.

I had a much harder time getting Maehwa to look good, especially the eye/eye sockete/eyebrow controls, they're noticeably so much lower quality than newer classes

Yeah,... i never could get the face back to how it was. I took screenshots of all the sliders before the change and even with the same base doign exactly the same thing it wasn't looking the same and no matter how much I tried to go back to the original look i never could. To the point I kept my old profile picture and then put a face covering helmet on my wiz so I can stll pretend they look like they used to. This is my way of coping. Denial.

I say it's not worth messing with this stuff because it's really upsetting when you've had one look for years, one that you had put work on and were attached to, and then they mess it up.

Not to mention I HAD an old man wiz and changing the body to a young fit type makes the look I go for look weird and incoherent. They should have never touched wiz. If revamping classes aesthetics is gonna turn out like what they did for wiz, then , by all that is holy don't touch them. You don't know what you're asking for.

At this point the only thing I want character creator wise is the option to have normal sized boobs on female chars (the smallest option is still big boobs in the real world) and maybe to have the option of shoes and boots that aren't high heeled (again on female chars)

I agree old classes could use a graphic update - body/face textures, voiced lines like scholar, cooler animations. Regarding movement, many people actually prefer this more robotic movement; personally, I prefer the fluid movement of newer classes. Their wallpapers in the character selection screen also need to be revamped. But honestly, all this is unlikely to happen, since people will complain or quit. Just look at the negative reactions to wizard, a class definitely in need of revamps (his body was literally a wrinkled old man, he had moles all over his skin due to age); they made him look like a fit younger man.

Poor Wizard.....  I felt so bad for him... and all who play as him...

So, in terms of "overhaul", let it not be a replacement, but a refinement of what we can do with our characters.  Mine are perfect as they are now, but more options can definitely be added.  And better slider options that don't negate what we already have.

PA: when you change stuff, don't nuke what already is.  Please, just give us more options.
