Basically the idea is to make it easier on players to change weapon skins, akin to what other mmo games do, but retain some requirements. You would still need to earn the weapon through gameplay via the compendium, the One million meseta buy in, and the transmutation passes, but not the headache of leveling the weapon to a +35, and without needing the weapon on your person for the sake of convenience. The compendium being account linked already, this would allow players to pull their favorite weapon skins directly from it. Feedback from other forum users is also welcome.
To users that saw my post in the general thread, don't get me wrong, I'm still willing to farm the weapons I need currently, but I thought up this idea while I was working on getting the transmutation through the current method.
