I still miss the wraith crown

    I agree with you.

    They should have the options to remove the cloak or add the crown to Talion's face.

    I actually kinda hate the cloak because it always clips through his legs and the physics of the cloak is broken.

    I never understood the wraith-mask. Like, where did it even come from?

    I honestly like the hooded wraith the most because it lines up with Talion's "default" gear look.

    But I will admit that the wraith-mask looked cool, even though I never actually got the chance to play as that version of Talion's wraith because I spent too much time in act 2. By the time I beat act 3, the update that removed the mask had already came out. They hadn't added the wraith-cloak yet, though.

    Same, I really, really miss that mask, and-although it was A.) the dev's decision to make and B.) probably removed for a good reason- due to potential conflict with the Nazgul Masks, perhaps- it's a decision I am just still so bummed about. It tied in nicely with the canon description of the Nazgul, i.e. when viewed in the wraith world, they appeared like "great Kings of old", and was a nice visual representation of his on-going corruption. The cloak, while not ....awful persay, just doesn't have that same effect for me.

    At the very least, they could've given him some facial hair if nothing else - Poor Tal's got no eyebrows, which is waayy more noticeable now that you can see his entire face. :(
    While that change doesn't really significantly impact the overall gameplay in any meaningful way, true, it was, nonetheless one of the small details I really, really loved about the endgame, and does diminish my enjoyment of the game.

    Honestly I'm just at the point where I hate the wraith hood and cloak so much that I will just never leave act 2. Which sucks immensly because of some of the cool things I'll miss out on. But I really, really cannot take that glitchy as hell, terrible looking cloak anymore. I miss my facegaurd that made me feel like an actual leader cause of its crown like design, I miss seeing the back armor of the wraith without a cloak in the way, and I definitely miss the crown appearing over the whole face during speeches instead of this boring as hell cloak. Monolith I love your game but your decision on this for the sake of cutscenes in BoG was pretty bad. Please just give us the option to switch between the 2.

    For those that were not around when it was in the game this is what Dark Talions wraith looked like. Once again i feel that we should have an option to switch back and forth between the 2 because some of us much prefer how he looked prior to the BoG update. It also fits with the whole concept of the Nazgul looking like the kings of old when people see their wraiths.

    Spoke with Jared on the Discord. He said its never coming back.

    Plus, it makes more sense lore-wise. Talion doesn't wear a mask. He wears a cloak.
