Paladin Tier 13 Armor On Female Models

I really love the Paladin Tier 13. I was looking forward to wearing this tier for a while. But then I saw how it looks on female models:

Sigh. I guess I'll have to find a shirt to wear underneath that'll blend well with the tier. For some reason I don't really have a problem with cloth-wearers or even mail or leather wearers having these kind of outfits. But doing it to plate just seems ridiculous. It could be that I'm reading way too much gritty fantasy where this kind of thing doesn't fly. It could be that I've been playing a female character as my main for nearly a year, now. And I know a lot of people don't have a problem with plate bikini or whatever as it's a fantasy setting.

But I find it absolutely ridiculous to wear a plate belly-shirt.

I really don't know how many women work in the Blizzard art-department, I'd be really curious. Maybe a woman designed this, I don't know, but it kind of doesn't matter, that still doesn't excuse this.

It just plain blows screaming chunks of suck and fail at the moon that I have to show off my bare mid-riff while tanking the god-damned Aspect of Death.


  1. I am a fearsome former agent of the Scourge. I get hit very hard by large and angry bosses so that the rest of the raid gets big numbers. Midriff baring armor is NOT going to help me get this job done. I mean, unless my healers enjoy healing gut wounds? Argh!

    I'm totally with you on this. It's really dumb for plate to not cover everything.

  2. Hah, too true.

    Thanks for the backup. :)
