Tier 3 Human Cultural Armor Gender Comparison in Guild Wars 2 Powered By Docstoc
					A part of what seriously irks me about the Guild Wars 2 duelist armor could be that the human
female version I previewed with the article is strictly for humanoid races. My female charr?
She offers the full coat Hunter’s male human gets. It’s exactly the same story with my female
asura. Only the human, norn, and sylvari ladies are cursed with this lacey, sexualized mess. As
Hunter said, I'd personally much choose the male version from the armor, its considerably more to
my tastes in armor. I’m not terribly upset over it, I merely was required to cross it off my set of
armors I'd personally want.

I’m a passionate skin hunter in Guild Wars 2 Gold sale. Ever vigilant for shiny new armor
skins, a guy wearing the tier three human cultural set caught my eye yesterday. I used to be excited
since it wasn’t a good full trenchcoat, then there is a bare overabundance of trenchcoats inside
medium armored classes. Additionally, it absolutely was covered in daggers. I recieve this
kind of remove of wearing armor more dangerous than my weapons. It did actually me such as a
wonderful throwback for the Assassins I so loved dearly inside original Guild Wars (I felt like
thief became a downgrade in badassness). It added approximately being what I thought could be
the perfect armor set for me, so I popped onto Divinity’s Reach to preview it by myself
character. I bought quite a shock, since this is what I saw.
Tier 3 Human Cultural Armor Gender Comparison

I honestly believed in the beginning there was getting some sort of mistake. I was thinking
(hoped) that there was clearly a broken texture around my midriff and i also just might report the
bug and see it fixed. Unfortunately, as Hunter stated to me, there is certainly concept art for the
female and male sets is impeccably near the in-game armor.

It’s not skin showing or bared breast that bothers me. It’s not about my tastes in armor in the
least. I actually just like having armor that shows some skin; I’m not above low cut armor. It
’s not too I think it’s a negative armor set, i could even still pip out to buy Guild Wars 2 Gold
from http://www.guildwars2gold.org/ . It’s that if a man armor had were built with a gaping
hole in the middle of it, I wouldn’t have even trained with a 2nd thought. Even so the male
version gets an entire coat i obtain a…honestly, what exactly is that even looking to cover my
chest? A tissue? I really hope my thief doesn’t need to do anything even remotely acrobatic
anytime soon or gravity is going to take what remaining modesty the indegent girl has.

Sarcasm and jokes aside, what bothers me are these claims silly double standard. I am aware
ArenaNet cares about gender in MMO’s. Historically they’ve been delicious to female
players and characters alike. ”None or six“ anyone? Their non-sexualization philosophy
even shows in some of these other armor even during Guild Wars 2 itself.

While i see these heavy armor sets side by side it even makes me feel that possibly the duelist and
assassin’s armors are the exceptions that somehow slipped throughout the cracks. I don’t
think ArenaNet is terrible or sexist for doing this, I’m just disappointed that some of the armor I
’m most enthusiastic about didn’t find the same treatment that this heavy class armors did.
Just what exactly’s to get done? I’m no artist, but I do believe the partial coat for the assassin
’s armor could be designed to cover her body in imitation of the male’s armor with many
cleverly placed textures. Duelist’s armor may be fixed start by making an equivalent for the
female from the male’s version, and also a male same in principle as the female’s version,
causing them to be two separate sets, simply because hardly resemble same set in the first place. If
you need a skin-showing assassinesque set, make something like the Assassin’s exotic armor
from Guild Wars.

But if you’re planning to buy GW2 Gold to increase the armor, should it pretty, pretty please not
be a trenchcoat? Speaking a medium armor class enthusiast, we’ve got trenchcoats like butter up
in here.
