Just armor?[edit]

Isn't this just armour of a particular design? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

it is an armor, yes, if that's what you're asking. ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 18:28, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
It's not really armor, as it "has no modifiers and does not improve the defense of the character". It's more like gw1's costumes. Konig/talk 19:17, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
I believe they're exactly like costumes just more advanced. --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 19:48, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Not exactly like costumes. I was under the impression that you can only wear one or the other. Costumes could be worn over armor in battle. Towns clothing replaces your armor, and would leave you at a huge disadvantage in battle. --Moto Saxon 21:02, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
To be fair, costumes are also "one or the other" - costumes are over, thus you retain the stats of what's under the costume. We don't know the situation (or it isn't provided on the wiki) for town clothing. So it's either "exactly the same as costumes" or "the same except one thing." Either way, not armor. Konig/talk 21:51, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Players can toggle between armor and town clothing. Armor is represented by dual daggers, town clothing represented by a tophat and cane. Easily visible here. Any questions? ;) 22:09, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
yes. for what purpose is that rose? (next to engi icon) also what's the meaning of life? and last but not least why is that engineer wearing a Simple Mask? --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 22:14, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
the rose means he is charming, instead of fierce or dignified. the mask is probably the only thing they were able to wear at that moment of the demo. and the meaning of life is for you to decide.
stupid thing I forgot 'bout the rose, and thanks for the others xD (please sign ;) ) --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 22:32, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Just to add what Konig has been saying. We don't know anything much about town clothes, just that they exist. How you acquire them, how they interact with armour - we just don't know. I think that players can wear near anything which NPC's can in the clothing slots. And we've been told the image to the right in these two is town clothing: dye example gw1-gw2 comparison. -- aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 23:15, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't think they interact with armor at all-- I think you just toggle between one or the other. However, what happens beyond that is yet to be seen. :) 15:07, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

"Your weapon skills are disabled while wearing towns clothes."[edit]

Is there a confirmation of this? I really hope not, because needless to say, that would make fighting in town clothes completely impossible, and I was really hoping that wasn't the case. Arshay Duskbrow 11:01, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

OMG! I completely agree I'd love to fight in Townsclothes D: why do we always have to wear armor :/ yes ofcourse it's the most realistic but this is a fantasy game.. --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 11:08, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
Unarmed skills, perhaps? Confirmation would be nice, yes. - Infinite - talk 13:29, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
I grabbed the ui screen and the added the note about the weapon skills. Jump to 19:42 of this video. As the player toggles back and forth between armor and town clothes, the weapon skills come and go, so yeah. its sad. fighting in town clothes would have been cool. --Moto Saxon 13:42, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
Until I hear it (and the explanation for it) from the mouth of a developer, I won't believe it. I'll just assume this is an unfinished aspect of the game for now. Arshay Duskbrow 04:37, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Town clothes are supposed to be just that town clothes, not armor. Its unrealistic to have characters wearing armor outside of combat and just plain silly to have characters wearing town cloths in combat. You want to go straight to defeated? Ramei Arashi 04:29, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Townsclothing enables us to wear just about anything that NPC's can wear. That said, I'm not gonna lie, it would have been awesome to pwn some ppl in a balcksmiths apron or chefs hat. But since they can not be modded, and weapons are disable, I don't see that happening. But I can understand if people want to hold on to that dream. --Moto Saxon 04:51, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
I'm guessing that it will be because the Toy slot will give you some new skills/emotes? 19:17, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
maybe the town clothes are a form of costume - you can choose to show/hide it? as for the armor in town - what about town guards? Getefix 21:25, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
I think we can safely assume that (NPC) town guards will not have to worry about swapping between armor and clothing. ;) Aqua (T|C) 23:38, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
What about undercover agents? There are spies everywhere! *hides* --Xu Davella 00:09, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Playing the recent Beta weekend I can confirm that town clothes do hide the players skills. However if you are injured they switch back automatically so you dont die in a blind panic trying to switch back. It does make you wonder if this will allow for 'social' skills to be added when a toy is equipped (toy is a new weapon type?!).--Decoinferno 10:01, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Re-Acquiring 'lost' town clothes?[edit]

So, it seems I've managed to drag my town clothes leggings off my character and deleted them. Is there any way to get them back? Are there vendors for the 'basic' town clothes or is it all gem-store sets? 09:51, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

It's not possible. Once deleted you can't get them again on same character. Czokalapik 10:35, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
You don't buy the actual costume like in GW1, just perishable costume pieces. Lose them, and you lost your gems and/or money for good. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 18:12, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Obtaining town clothing[edit]

Is there any places to obtain new town clothing? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Though this is by no means proof that it is possible, in this episode of Guild Wars 2 Daily, Wooden Potatoes explains that he acquires town clothes by repairing a machine for someone (probably the Town Clothes of the Charr's Warband, if I understood correctly). If it is the case, people should try and get a list of the different Town Clothing available, no ?User Kilarith Duskleaf Name.png 07:05, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
That repairing a machine, if I know which one he's talking about, is in Iron Marches. I did it, got a hat. Konig/talk 18:42, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
What about proof of obtaining it with coin or quest, listing what they are, or what. Simply saying you can buy more is really ambiguous. I know you can buy with gems... ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 23:26, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Do you take damage before the auto-switch to armor or after?[edit]

When you take damage whilst in town clothes, do you switch to armor (and the defence bonuses that comes with it) before the damage is calculated and applied or after? --Combatter 12:41, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Removal and change into armor[edit]

So I started editing the pages now that town clothes have been retired but I ran into a problem. Technically I believe the Town Clothes items still exist in the game. This last patch created new items (a consumable skin) that you can obtain by trading in the old town clothes items (if it was equipped prior to the patch it's still equipped you just can't see it - hover over second town clothes item of the same slot to see it). Do I just edit all the old pages to indicate the change and change the info tables to the new versions (like I did for Southsun Mask with an explanation of what to do with the town clothes version so people don't get confused) or do I need to create duplicate pages for every skin to document the armour skin versions?

love how their is no gallary for the skins. JUST GREAT!!!!

Some changes from April 2014 patch[edit]

Some changes done to clothing pieces. I had originally purchaed the Khaki Cargo Shorts which was a legging piece only, and bought one of the vest and shirt items for the chest. With the change these items got put in to their own full outfit. The shorts look like they were matched up with the hoodie and some boots, while the shirt and vest got hooked up with some riding pants. Neither are the outfit I had going with the character and bought for them since the ability to mix and match chest, legging, and foot items is gone. The item you get is the same as the starter town clothes, an infinte use item that changes you in to the outfit for 15 mins. Kenrid (talk) 15:38, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
