Could you please stop making high heels and skimpy armor for females?

Recommended Posts

Dear devs,

It is really hard to find armor sets or outfits for female characters that look fitting for an adventurer. This is the main reason I (almost) exclusively play male characters.

I mean, this is GW2 and not Conan the Barbarian after all, no? ;) It would be nice to have more options to be able to dress female human and norn characters properly, namely as female adventurers and not as princesses or seductresses. :+1:

Thank you.

There is already a wide variety of styles to choose from... This sounds more like you just don't like seeing the skimpy stuff on females period.

Please make more of skimpy outfits and armor. This game is way too modest.I dunno what is the word for 'skimpy' for males, I would like those too.

I cannot agree with this post. Majority of armors in the game are not skimpy. In fact, I find it difficult to find skimpy armors (that I like) for my characters.

Any particular race and armour weight you're referring to? Or are you ok with someone at Anet flicking through the armour galleries and deciding there's plenty of non-skimpy options for charr, asura and medium and heavy armoured females of all races so it's fine and they don't need to follow up any further?

But even on other race/armour combinations there are a lot of options. You may need to mix and match sets to get a look you like, but that's true no matter what style you're going for.

I think they stopped adding skimpy armors with the expansions. Some Light versions remain more revealing but it's not similar to other older sets that are way more revealing.

Take a look and form your own opinion:

I think there is enough variety here to satisfy most needs!

I find the reverse to be true, but everyone views things with different eyes.

I'm curious as to whether this issue is solely about not being able to find anything to wear at all, or if there is an issue with seeing people wear things they choose to wear that you would rather not see? Would a feature to be able to 'ignore how someone looks', like the 'block' feature, but it replaces them with a low-res look, allowing you to 'visually block' people on case-by-case basis, help? Or, would there still be an issue because you know that it's all still out there, even though you aren't seeing it yourself now?

How about:

Give us choice so that the people who want to have skimpy armour can have it, and the ones who want practical armour can have it?

How about not pitting people's preferences against one another?



Just a thought.

~~ I mean, it's not like girls could prefer skimpy armour, too, or anything. That'd be insane, right? It would be completely impossible for a girl to actually WANT skimpy armour on their character, right??? ~~

The real problem isn’t that females have ample skimpy outfits but that males do not have an equal amount of skimpy outfits.

Even then though, females don’t have that many skimpy outfits either, GW2 is very good about providing a wide variety of armor appearances and for the most part is pretty modest (IE “real” armor).
