    I will be odd to play Shadow Wars as Celebrimbor!

    Throughout the last stream Jared gave a lot of straight no answers to certain things, extra save files, arena mode a couple of other things, honestly I think part of the reason that we haven't got straight answers so far is because some of the new features are not straight forward and require a good long explanation.

    On Facebook there's a picture of Talion wearing what appears to be Helm Hammerhand's mask and a Fire Graug casually standing behind him.

    Holy shrak...that’s not a completely new outfit...Talion is wearing a Level 1-2 Dark tribe set!!!!

    This means that the helmet is a completely new category!!!!

    And there is a FIRE Graug behind him! Helm could summon beasts...this means the helmet allows the user to summon elemental beasts!

    It's a mask, Jared said there will be masks.

    It looks badass.

    You know, I never even asked for a Nazgul skin/armor, (I actually thought it was a dumb idea and that Monolith would never do it) but the more I look at that picture, the more I like it. It just looks so frickin' cool.

    I agree, Achethedor, this mask opens a new realm of possibilities. Since this is gear, we know that the mask will alter our abilities in some way (the fire graug for example.) and if this is truly a new gear type, that means we may get access to other masks or crowns that boost our abilities.

    I don't understand why some people are not happy about this skin. I'm quite shocked. :)

    Looks very agressive, ready to do some heavy damage and if it comes with it's own abilities...then it's amazing.

    Good job, Monolith! Keep up the good work.

    Just remember this is just the first reveal and the full explanation of what it is and does will be covered along with everything else over the next couple of weeks, there is still more to come, I'd say don't prejudge before you have all the fact.

     

    The mask does look very nice though I must admit.

    I was rushing, i didn't read everything...sorry!

    And my native language it's not english, so...you understand, i try my best. :)

     

    Back to subject.

     

    I really hope they will do the nazgul skin for your happiness and others who wants so badly new skins and in this way maybe we finish this subject about skins so the guys can work to important things for the future of this game.

     

    For me...new gear is the way. Masks (maybe they are more then one :) ), maybe they will bring shields( blocking with shield, not with sword), maybe other primary weapons than swords (a lot of work, not posible i know)...and this new gears can make Tallion so unique from player to player and have a real impact to the game.

     

    SoW is the only game that i have played for real in the last 10 years, and i am getting bored (believe me i don't want that) and i prefer things that can be a game changer, bringing endless replayability... not just esthetical.

    And if they can  make the a gear set and Tallion cand have the look of Isildur/Nazgul, it's very ok, way better new a empty skin. :)

     

    But i don't  believe they will make Nazgul skin and they will follow the humans body line. Celebrimbor it's possible(if they don't have future plans with him), but Nazgul, no...and i think it's way more better a DLC with him so you can play like Nazgul for real.

     

    It's just my humble opinion and like i said it in the start of the discussion: I really hope they will do the nazgul skin for your happiness and others who wants so badly new skins.

     

    And as the end of discussion, i have attached a good picture with boulders...take one and throw it straight to my head...you naughty nazgul lover. :)

     

    P.S. I love the character/mask from photo, love it! Very good idea!

    Pretty sure they said they won’t update the game after July so I guess this is it. If I want to use elven rage I have to stay in act 2 and can’t also have raise dead with it. You know, you would’ve thought that adding in the option to switch between the two would’ve been easier to do than creating this entirely new thing that’s really not even what people asked for in actuality. At the very least, yay elemental beasts that were underutilized throughout the entire span of the game are now being made available to the player (or just the graug). Maybe I’ll like this more when they show it off and maybe there is other helmets that give abilities from the other nazgul or something, maybe there’s a celebrimbor crown that gives us back elven rage and maybe even his wraith. I’ll hold out hope for now but I doubt it, it seems like this helmet is it’s own thing but maybe not, I’d like to be wrong. You know, I feel like there was just as much if not more of an outcry for the option to bring celebrimbor back as there was for a nagzul skin, surprised we got this honestly.

    Guys, i believed there will be new skins too. They probably did too. I don't think they will be this lazy and not give back talion with celebrimdor ((the model is in the game already) . So I really think they will give this option. It would be idiot if they don't do that.

    they didn't reveal full july update things they said there will be skins this is a new type of gear and don't be so selfish the nazgul skin was requested more than enough and this isn't the nazgul skin this is a random helmet nazguls have masks that have iron color read dang thread before starting to hate on devs they said this is a new gear there's still skins plus it requires less work than wraith

     there won't be any new paid dlc, that is why Jared said "this is it"

    (I think he refers to paid dlc and not any kind of dlc, because there is info about new gameplay thingys and tweaks)

     

     did you complete the main story?

    I did. But I’m telling dark knight that the Wraith skin was hard to include. So he thinks the Celebrimbor skin is to difficult despite being in the game.

    Skins are pretty but useless.  Masks on the other hand are a new gear item and useful.  And now there's a picture of a second mask on their Facebook page.  Don't know what it's suppose to be though.  The picture also has a zombie orc being raised by Talion.

    Skins are awesome, they are not uselss, they add replayablity, and more variety, 

    it's boring to look at the same character forever, som new characters are very welcome, even if they don't have new skills.

     

    The facebook image shows the Nazgul chains,  it seems it is a new skill

    badass
