Ah. the age old paradox of female armour decreasing in coverage while increasing in protection

To be honest, we don't know what HUMAN female armor looks like. Castanics are demons, and it looks like the female of the species are designed to be sort of like succubi, in that they use seduction to their every advantage.

I don't know what people are whining about, I think the detail on the armor looks great, especially that blue set.

Interesting art. I certainly don't mind it. Although, I'm not sure I'd be able to play a female character in Tera if they look like that. =) Hopefully the males don't look retarded.

Is it just me, or are the hands of that female character supersized? Nice looking equipment otherwise, all practicality of actual armor coverage notwithstanding.

It's not just you. Her hands are 2-3 times larger than they 'should' be. Oh, and apparently she only has hair on her head. *cough*

@ r2d242 - Castanics are demon, not human, don't judge them by the same standard.

More boring metal bikini armor.

Do all these Asian games have the same art crew? They must.

Actually they bear more resemblances to WAR's sorceress armor than anything I've seen recently in Asian MMOs.

Because Asians are the only ones who use bikini armor in their art...

Red Sonja, Witchblade, She-Ra all have pretty skimpy armor. Really not effective in combat and they're all western characters... Not to mention all the other female superheroes from DC, Marvel, Image, or any comic book studio.

Face it comic book artists (yes that includes manga artists, which is the style most Korean games use) and video game artists love skimpy clothing on woman. This is worldwide, not just Asian.

*shivers* Evidently chafing does not exist in this world.

Not impressed. Doubly not impressed if the men are not similarly underdressed.

Is anyone else starting to get sick of this trend with female characters in MMOs?

Just MMOs?

No, you're not the only one. If I had an inclination toward this game, I'd have to roll up a male character just so I wouldn't be wincing at the thought of my poor character suffering through the stupidity of wearing something like that.

.."But sir?!"...No.......butts... Melissa, you will continue to draw the new armor for this title and like it.

"Sir, i may have to draw this stuff but i wont like it, its demeaning to females and shows societies move toward uncontrolled sexual exhibitionism"

Lol, wut? Draw or your fired. And make sure the male characters are fully clothed......

Silvia!! coffee, now!

Well it's a silly practice and should be scrapped. Women can look just as impressive in armor as men.

Only a few, unknown titles do this though. Just WoW, AoC, DAoC, SWG and some other minor titles. You guys are right.

If I was a female warrior, I would be really embarrassed to die in something like that. :(

When the game launches....wtf 80% of the males are playing females chars!

Can't wait to see the other sprites and gear. Scantily clad sells games and other things quite well. Sure there are sexist females who get all upset over it, but they are probably ugly like the video of the ugly women protesting outside a Hooters. =p
