    Default How do you feel about big items, and sparkly items?

    Since Ubisoft acquired Growtopia (and a to some extent before), there has been a huge increase in big clothing items and items with heaps of particle effects. They are often IOTMs. Sometimes they can be a bit too imposing and take away from true, subtle style and beauty, I think. They also take away from legitimate wealth and status, if they're cheap -- some are comparable to legendary wings.

    What do you think of them?

    Some examples are Glove of Giants, Aurora Wings, Angel of Mercy Wings, Prismatic Aura. And then there's Wild O' the Wild (flaming hair), and all those items with sparkles and particles coming off everywhere. You can name some of your own examples.

    My general method of rating any item, big or small, is as follows:
    Is it a dragon, or is it in some way related to dragons? If the answer is yes, then it's a good item and I love it. If the answer is no, the item is irrelevant.

    Imo they should tone it down a bit. I dont like people buying them just to make their characters bigger

    I think perhaps there are a few too many items that are flashy and influence people to make gross sets that include as many flashy items as they can afford, regardless of whether they actually look good worn together, (e.g. Will of Wild Fire + Ghost King's Glory + Dark Aurora Wings), but overall having more effects is a lot of fun.

    One big thing I've noticed are hairs, there are better hairstyles these days, such as the ones we got in PAW. I think it would be cool to get more subtle items as well, but I don't think the Legend items are losing value with all these new items, on the contrary, with all the new flashier items existing, Legend items still maintain a far higher status.

    I like having both subtle and expressive clothing items, as a good set requires a balance between the two.

    I agree, the current mentality is , “hEy mY sET’s bIGgeR thhan UrS, sO I’m MorE Pro...”

    I dislike how flashy the new cheap items are, For example golden razor wings, 10Wls, and aurora/steampunk wings...
    Found this XD

    They’re not terrible when you think of them as their own items. It’s when people start piling them on, thinking that bigger is better. They end up being the flashiest and shiniest people in the room. In my opinion, that’s just hard to look at. However, you can make it work if you use them sparingly.

    I'm okay with sparky, but I'm not okay with this 'big' feature at all, it kind of kills game mood in overall.

    Yea. Big looking items looks neat and all but you can't see your own background. Like you have been created with a bunch of randomly big items

    I though you copy and paste them then polished it then sent it to the server tada. It's like you never take a min to make it a little good

    imo they look ugly, ngl but the designs are so-so and to make the size x1 bigger just brings the ugliness to a whole new level.
