How would everyone feel about this?
I just utterly hate the descriptions that are used currently. I don't have a problem with negative mog traits being 'ugly' or whatever, but all of them are just... ugh. I am entirely willing to pay for an artifact that lets me choose what each one looks like. In all honesty, I'd probably just use the old ones that Imperian had. Int mog = Elegant ebony horns. Yes please.
Thoughts? Are there actual fans of the current mog descriptions?
I only briefly read over it, but didn't the post say something like this feature would be available in the future?
I would like to see the transmog descriptors rewritten.
The idea of transmogrification is that the occultist has partially transformed themselves into an eldritch abomination. But the current modifiers don't live out that idea very well.
You can see a full list of current mogs, and their corresponding buffs and debuffs, on the Occultism skill page on Achaea's wiki (link). Some of the current modifiers are good: blue fur, black scales, porcupine needles. Most are a bit unimaginative, or weird, and not weird in the good way: thin skin, droopy eyes, stringy muscles, caved forehead, double joints, bumpy skin. 'Chicken-like head' always makes me think of Foghorn Leghorn.
Some ideas for replacements:
giant compound eyes
an aura of whispering voices
an aura of chromatic aberration
a second shadow
eyes covering [his/her] arms
hive-like sores swarming with nesting insects
writhing black veins
empty black eye sockets
an iridescent sheen
a serpent's tongue
eyes that glow from within
(Piridon is bae, tho. )
