Titan, Hunter, or Warlock?

The Warlock Bond

I like the Warlock bond as it is.

270

I feel like the bond should be more noticeable

392

I don't really care or mind.

168

So, I get that there's mixed argument on the appearance of the Warlock class item; some people think it's not extravagant enough and some people think it's just fine (I'm one of those who like it as it is). I don't usually do this as I understand that it really is a matter of individual opinion, however I feel like it's necessary to say. Reading some of the descriptions of class items for Hunters and Warlocks in the Beta alone you'd notice one always talks about outdoing the other: Warlocks trying to exceed the Hunters without looking like they're trying and the Hunters trying to show the Warlocks how to excel with style. I reckon that shows through their actual class items. The bond isn't flashy, it's minimalist - and it dictates what the Warlock is all about. They're not flashy. The Hunters go all-out with cloaks and hoods with eccentric designs on them. I feel like, although I understand and totally agree that people want their Warlock to look how they'd like them to, people don't understand that this is the way a Warlock would be: not trying to look like they're going all-out like the Hunters, because they don't need to. People have gotta remember that these are Destiny's character templates, not the player's. The player gets a design within that template. [spoiler]Not hating on the Hunters or saying they try too hard to be flashy, just pointing out the friendly competitiveness between the classes. [/spoiler]

  • I think the warlock bond should be like the titan butt cape but on your arm...maybe like a sleeve or something

    • The only problem I have with the bonds is that they are the least noticeable of the class related items, you can spot a hunter cloak from a mile away, see a titans sash from a mile away, but you have to get a microscope to see what the warlock is wearing. So I voted for a more flashy approach, because I understand how the warlocks are trying to be mysterious but there is no reason not to look bad ass while doing it.

        Bungie stated in a weekly update that you will definitely be satisfied by the options presented to you at higher levels. I mean the speaker has freaking amazing holographic bonds, and they added some cool flames to the iron banner bond. I'm sure people will be content.

          • you are correct in your assumptions. We warlocks feel no need to prove our superiority to the hunters, for we already know it to be true. Nothing needs to be said. As for our bonds, they are but a symbol of our oath to the traveler. They are a representation of everything that defines us. That is why my bonded brothers and I wear them and think not of how unimpressive they are. For we ourselves are impressive enough on our own that no flashy items are needed to prove this.

            • See some exotic bonds and you will be singing a different tune. Plus the coats the Warlock gets are beyond badass.

              • There is even a bond that lights your upper arm on fire. Super epic.

                • All classes have flashy and non flashy class items. Seen some crazy warlock bonds in the vids. But looks like the the higher the rank item the more detailed it is and the more flashy it can be. Also looks like there's some high rank gear that has less flash too. I had a green rank Hunter cloak that looked like a potato sack. The guardian viewer here doesn't show it right but it had the rugged/worn look I like over the bright and flashy look.

                • Why are we even talking about it. We have no clue how awesome these bonds can even be. This is almost as bad as saying destiny is the best game ever before we have even played through it.

                  • There are cooler bonds, bungie has yet to show the badass ones that will actually cover a lot of the arm and chest area

                    • It's not what they look like it's the problem, it's the fact that they're so small you can't really see them. The exotic ones look cool, but unless you're burying your face into the warlock's arm, you can't see it.

                            • if you look at end game class specifics.. warlocks are actually going to have the coolest ones. titans the least cool, and hunters in the middle/almost as cool/as cool as warlocks depending on personal preference. but while the titans sash may be more visible immediately.. it peaks very very early in how cool they can actually be.. warlocks are the opposite.. pretty underwhelming but with that massively awesome high end that blows other end game specifics out of the water.

                                      • Warlocks get TRENCH COATS as their main armor. Shut up. If you don't like the bonds don't wear them. Shit.

                                              • It's the same as the other two; Hunters have a pitiful little flap for a cape and Titans' marks are not very flashy or extravagant either.. I feel like too many people are comparing low-level bonds to Exotic capes and marks... Once you get rare bonds, they will be quite flashy, I hope you watched the PvP trailer released the other day: we get a bond of flame. There are no flaming capes and marks Or are there...? 0v0
