Will there be a "Compendium of Skins" in the Library submenu?

Yeah, I also remembered the 10 new families after posting that.

Some races have multiple skins (Aspects have two so far!), so there's not really a lot of direction in that regard. I left this task up to our artist entirely - he came up with all the ideas and even named them.

So, if there are 80 skins that means there are 8 races without skins. Avatar and Dumpling are the obvious ones. As for the other ones...

I guess Aspects since there are only 4 seasons (though I'd love an Aspect skin, since there are only 5 creatures in that race). Sins are the same, there are only 7 cardinal sins, and Sanctus are their counterparts. Shapeshifters are based on class, so the same goes for them.

I'd say Golems because they already have 11 sprites, but Diabolic Horde has 10 and they got one.

Grimoires are a special family, too... I can't imagine a new Paragon either.

So I bet it's Avatar, Dumpling, Aspect, Sin, Sanctus, Shapeshifter, Grimoire, Paragon. Let's see how many I got right  :P

I'm super torn. I like supporting this game/dev... but i also like collecting things. I love this game so far but my biggest issue is i feel like there is no "wow" factor with loot.

In Siralim 1, i was always happy when i got a pill, or a good nether orb and i feel like that is kind of missing in 2 so far. Skins would be one more thing i could look out for drop wise... but then i wouldn't be supporting the game. Gah!

I feel the same way. I want the drops but I also want to support the devs.  You guys should have open a donation system on your website.

I believe each creature has a card. If you just look at the Wiki you'd think there are very few cards but the Wiki has very little info on cards as they are extremely rare.

God cards will be awesome. Those are coming in the expansion.

What I would be interested in is a Siralim trading card game. I would have no one to play it with but I think it's an interesting idea.

How about Cards?
I'd personally like it if there were more cards.

Cards are great, its just that they are really the only thing loot wise that i feel are rare loot wise.

And to Zack, for me personally, i think that is a great idea. I would pay for that.

I'm just pulling this idea out of thin air and haven't really thought much about it, but what if there was another microtransaction that just increased the drop rate of skins by quite a lot and was less expensive than the bundle?

It will probably be available sometime during the beta, but not necessarily at the very beginning.

Will the skin bundle pack be available when the beta version comes out, or only when it's fully released?

Oh I see! Sorry for the confusion. At the moment, I don't think there will be a system to do that.
No problem! I'm excited to see what other skins will be in the full release :D
