I loved badge hunting in CoX. For me it was more personal to each toon than to my account. To me it seems a little odd to spin a new character and have a lvl1 standing next to me in phoenix plaza with fireworks and spotlights on their name, but thats not what this thread is about and its discussed heavily on another thread.
So my question to all is about the rewards for badges and achievements. I am very much in favor of costume unlocks, psudo pets, emotes, stances, or auras for badges and achievements earned. Badges, by deffinition, are meant to be seen. Think of a military uniform with every badge, ribbon, and medals bright and plain to see. Unfortunately many of the badges or sets didnt give to much to show.
