Will there be different styles of armors and weapons? If not much thought has been put in it perhaps it could be like in Elder Scrolls Online where you would add an item while crafting to alter the appearance, or perhaps it is gained through knowledge of the character, who can later learn to make armors in the different styles of the different races if they would be different. Thanks for any help.
Weapons and gear do have their own characteristics. I've mentioned it here and I shall mention it again in this thread.
They do have different characteristics depending on the type of item and the material used to craft it. They could also have other parameters, such as the quality. A Bronze Platemail has different stats compared to an Iron Platemail but two Bronze Platemails are the same, yes. (aside from possible modifiers that don't impact the power of the item, such as its Quality)
Practically all items will be crafted. You will have access to various resources like wood, metals, minerals, etc. Each race (and family) has its own unique bonuses that go well beyond attribute-related ones - and they include crafting and gathering too.
