I hate the women's armor, it's ridiculous and impractical for battle. GZ/Irem used to make the same armors (when it came to actual metal armor) for M/F but I guess that's now out the window. Thankfully, weapons can be used with any clothes, so I'll be picking up the lance/shield when they release here.

...which probably won't be until Dec 2013 with SCEA's "QA" track record.
Meanwhile, EU gets in a week or 2.

I actually like the girl's armor, athough I would like it on a male avatar xD. I guess that makes me weird Smiley Happy

No it doesn't make you weird tom, because actually, if males and females both got skimpy armor, I wouldn't mind. I just hate the fact that males get cool full body armor and females get a stupid metal bikini. Probably should have clarified that in my first post.

Also in response to the aesthetics thing someone posted on the other page...I'm actually not a fan of ugly-but-practical armor (which most of the armor in FFXIV is), but I happen to like the appearance of the Dokuganryu armor, and I would have LOVED the new male armor for women. Remember that aesthetics is also a matter of opinion.

Also, there's a difference between aesthetics and blatant sexism. They could make nice looking armor for women without it being skimpy. Or just give guys a metal speedo and a bare chest and I'll call it even Smiley Tongue

Oh YES. I would so love to see some skimp get passed on to the boys. Time for you to wear the steel corset for a change. LOL.

 

Yes, Burm. I think Granzella is definitely taking a page from the more *ahem* fashion-over-function MMORPG. JP Home has a lot of content in that vein, and I'm surprised it's taken them this long to emulate it. Not that I'm complaining. Oh no. I am very excited about these outfits. My wallet weeps, but I'm still getting them. LOL.

Nice^_^, I was thinking of getting better armor for my second avi, since I try to keep each account different. My prime works ok, but my second is not armored well enough, I will check this armor out better next time I get money


Thanks Asuka424 for the Signature
