Those Skimpy Armors...

Welcome to my blog as I feature Guild Wars this month. And today let me show you the most expensive armors(yeah, it also means 'strongest' armor, believe it or not) you can buy in the game when you get so l33t you have more gold and platinum pieces than you know what to do with(but hey, if you're really stumped, give 'em to meeeeeeee!).

Maybe it's because when the female character runs out of energy to fight, she can just distract her enemies with her armor.

I feature only the skimpiest 15k female armors for each class. There are actually other armors that are less revealing but give just the exact amount of protection as the ones shown in the pics, so I believe these are somehow more magical. From left: Warrior, Ranger, Elementalist, Mesmer, Monk and Necromancer.

I never understood the habit of dressing up women in fantasy settings with skimpy armor. I even wrote a treatise about it once, I think.

Like you said, there's probably some magic-based explanation for the effectivity of the equipment... or, well... something.

I don't suppose that there's any game or setting out there that actually puts women in full suits of armor, or anything like that?

I already mentioned that there are less revealing armors :) so if you just explore the links you'll find full suits of armor.

hiya. ^_^ Hehe... yeah, mal'akh (did i place that hyphen right...?) actually called me up on my mobile just to say that he met someone who reminded him of me. Lolz. Anyway, thanks for dropping by my site, though it's way overdue for an update. ^_^

Anyhoo, my blog's at http://www.livejournal.com/users/ksolaris. so please do drop a line sometime. ^_^

and as for the skimpy armor, I still think that the worst is this. I mean, if you had THAT thing up your butt, how in the world are you supposed to move, much less fight? O_o;;;

Skimpy armors

True, my ranger/warrior Dawn Andrea Stone wears half and half of the amazonian druid set. Still she looks cool. :-)
