And I mean literally, religiously offended. I know I can’t speak for everyone, in fact I can only speak for a hilariously small segment of the population, but…
Is it too much to ask for you to not appropriate the names of gods for your overpriced transactions? Why did this set have to be named after a deity? I know you only hear about the big Abrahamic faiths these days, but there are still pagans and neopagans around. With the Norse pantheon, you went for names of weapons and tools, so what gives here?
The helmet and shoulders and color scheme aren’t even vaguely Egyptian themed. The set was just given a mythological name to make it marketable. The helmet’s hideous and not even remotely canine-shaped, and the pauldrons are just big useless chevrons that don’t actually protect the shoulders. What is that color scheme supposed to be?
I feel disgusted and appalled that the name of my patron is being used to tempt me to waste $20.
EDIT: So apparently the helmet IS legacy armor from 5. Great. It’s not going anywhere. Fine. Bundle’s still being sold on the name for $WayTooMuch.
Aslo edit: No I’m not bloody trolling you yoinkholes. Have some respect for people with nonstandard beliefs.
I wanna see a Jesus set and see what they come up with XD Or Buddha. Really, as long as it’s not offensive, taking inspiration from other cultures is perfectly fine and I endorse it. It’s great when the world shares.
First, it’s a legacy helmet, starting in H5.
Second, though the shoulders are included in the “set”, they are not “Anubis” shoulders - they are UA (up-armored)/EFREM
And third, I’m sure there’s some internal trivia as to why it’s named Anubis, though admittedly it is not clear what that would be. The lore is that the helmets are “grown” in Elite forges. Could be a reference to being a “human with the head of a jackal”, seeing that Jackals are enemies in Halo.
Howls of frustration and defeat. I miss one game in the franchise and they’ve gone in for casual blasphemy; I’m just screaming into the ether at this point.
No way in hell legacy armor gets renamed. And 343 won’t ever break up a store bundle just because of whiny little old me. So I guess I get to just sit here and be pissy that the people making Halo see my faith as just a free idea bucket and nothing more.
(And I can’t point it out in fear of someone calling me a racist).
I still want to point out that Mjolnir and Gungnir are from Norse mythology though. And I’m not offended by that even though I’m Scandinavian. So back to my original point, that maybe we should all dial down the victimize-antennas and get less offended.
No trolling here. It really does bug me. But since the helmet’s from Halo 5, I’ve accepted that I just have to sit here and be mad about it, because the time to be pissy about it was like a decade ago.
