I think it would be neat and helpful too.
Instead of the rider always looking the same, why not match the appearance of the armor the rider is wearing?
Kind of sucks that the Rare-Legendary all looks the same but atleast the elite is different.
Right now all the Atlas riders are the exact same. All the armor is all the same. I think it would great to be able to set riders up differently because a lot of dragons are used in different ways.
You could earn specialty pieces like Hunters armor it could give Attk boosts, increased duration to cloak, faster rage regeneration, + Ammo, etc
These pieces obviously harder to come by and can either be earned a certain way or crafted at a lower rate then legendary.
Just would be nice to have different pieces to be able to set dragons up differently.
