Like many free-to-play live service games these days, precaution 2 love its skin. Every now and then, though, Blizzard stumbles across their cosmetic products, like they stumble upon an invisible dog. Players took to Twitter and Reddit to express their displeasure with support hero Moira’s rather tedious new legendary costume, based on the classic black-and-white look of mime artists everywhere. Like the mime artists themselves, it wasn’t very popular.
Moira’s legendary pantomime skin pack appeared in the Overwatch 2 store earlier this week for 3200 coins, and quickly became trapped in an invisible prison of its own making. Remember you only need to spend a little more than £25 and a little less than $28 to buy coins for this outfit. The skins themselves are already priced at 1900 coins (£17/$20 for 2000 coins), but the pack is currently on sale for 1700 coins until November 29, as coins come in lots of 500, 100 and 2000 (with an extra 200 coins). thrown in for a later batch), you’ll still have to pay £17/$20 for something that isn’t really much different from Moira’s regular Overwatch 2 skin.
Legendary skins are meant to change heroes’ outfits in some dramatic way, with changes to their weapon models, colors, and outfits. Several Overwatch 2 players took to the game’s subreddit to argue that Moira’s mime skin no legendary status value because it’s just a very basic discoloration to the hero’s usual skin, with a beret and some face paint. Others claim that the skin is not as dramatic as some epic skin Free for the original Overwatch.
You can see the difference or omission between Moira’s standard Overwatch 2 skin and the pantomime skin below:
I’m not your typical Overwatch player, if such a thing exists, but I really feel Moira’s new look. I think I would use the interface if it was free, even though I don’t want to pay for it. You can even get a matching pulling expression, just adding to the annoyance.
I can understand why players misunderstand how much effort this goes into when it’s sold as a legendary skin, when there have been legendary skins like the Cruiser skin in the past. D.Va’s awesome 1950s theme. Moira even has her own Bowie-inspired Glu and Moon legendary skins before, both of which are better than the mime Moira. You can see those and more in Rebecca’s compilation every hero skin in Overwatch 2.
Overwatch 2 is free to download from battle.net. What do you think of Moira’s new look and how much does it cost?
