Seriously, I'm just shocked.
I heard from the rumor mill online that AC: Valhalla tried to fix cloaks clipping through shoulder-pads by lifting such said shoulder-pads WAY too high above the player model. "Yeah dude, it's worst on the Mentor set. Clearly aren't even visibly attached. Just floating in the air, all goofy as $&$&. Don't worry, though. Almost every other set looks bad now, too. Yours is just the worst."
I can't believe they weren't joking. I ground out the spring festival (why the archery woman only has four lines of dialogue to repeat ad-nauseum is beyond me), left for almost two months, and came back to... this. How was creating goofily uplifted shoulder-pads for almost every major costume deemed an acceptable solution to cloak clipping? I wish we had been given a choice as players; I would have preferred to keep minor cloak clipping over this.
I don't even know what to say. You fixed one minor aesthetically annoying problem (only visible when one's cloak is on) by creating an entirely different aesthetically annoying problem that is impossible to ignore, cloak on or not. It's such a backwards way to solve the issue, which probably would have been best solved by just leaving it alone and shrugging.
*sigh* Maybe I can find a transmog cloak that just doesn't include shoulder-pads at all. Of course, it will have a cloak stitched together by the world's worst amateur-seamstress, with seams the size of bratwursts. Great that you can't choose cloak design independent of shoulder-pads. Marvelous.
