Return of Reckoning ~ Custom Capes Pt. 2

Back in February I had just posted some of the custom capes designed for special events/purposes in Warhammer Online: Return of Reckoning. These capes were made with care and dedication by my friend archexecutor, who likewise did all of the custom concept art on this blog. While we still do not have the tools to retexture armor, we are making small steps – and small discoveries – that hopefully will allow us to do so in the future. Below are more custom capes.

The first of the capes to arrive in RoR after the Night of Murder event was a single-day event quest for April Fools. The Harlequin Cowl was specifically designed, as its name indicates, to reflect the 16th century harlequin figure from theatrical Italian comedy. Harlequins are commonly associated with tricksters, so we figured the symbolism tied into an April Fools event.

The second cape I’d like to share actually comes with a few other additional contributions to RoR as we further develop what we are able to add to the game. This cape is the Blessed Hide of Kurnous which was added with the reintroduction of Hunter’s Vale as a permanent Tier 4 dungeon (a follow-up set to the Beastlord set.) The design of this cape is influenced by the concept art of the Avatar of Kurnous Mythic created.

As mentioned above, our artistic work on Hunter’s Vale did not stop with a cape. We also retextured the gate so that it would match the flora of the new permanent home of Hunter’s Vale in Ellyrion (getting the branches over the portal to work was complicated), and created a new map for the zone.

The next batch of capes were made for the Ranked Scenario rewards, awarded to the top players of their class.

The last and most recent batch of capes was made specially for the release of the two new capitals of Karaz-a-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks. These capes were tied to the elite reward for the third portion of the Stronghold Saga Event. They were designed taking the army logos and made in the style of the dwarfs or greenskins, as rewards for their loyalty during the Stronghold Saga.

Lastly, as part of the Stronghold Saga we also released the marketing rings with updated textures and newly textured dwarf and greenskin steins. With the steins we encountered a technical problem, as the steins were textured as 1024 x 1024 files, but this would not work due to a limitation with the armor. Unfortunately, in order to apply the stein textures we had to reduce their quality to 256 x 256, but we hope to increase the texture quality in the future once we ‘break the code’ of the armor sets.

    I had stopped checked your blog a long time ago, but I am glad to see you started it up again!

    From the sounds of things you know much more about RoR than I do, so I guess I don’t need to tell you about it lol.

    Glad to your passions have not dimmed
