It literally just occurred to me watching this that the head tracking thing birds do keeps their heads from bobbling around while they fly.

Guild Wars 2. Shining Blade Armour: Male and Female Design.
what woman wouldn’t want to fight in lingerie with a billowy skirt attatched? her major arteries need to be exposed otherwise she cant fight as good!
damnit, these are so beautiful. if she had a bodice and some breeches i would be totally licking the screen instead of shaking my head
This is my problem with Guild Wars armor designs. (and a number of korean MMOs as well…) I know it’s fantasy and you can fudge most of the practicality and get away with it, but the main focus of concept art is generally to mix something fantastic and unreal with a real concept and then make it seem believable.
Mass Effect did it best with fem!Shep’s armor design. It had the boobs and the curves and the sexiness without her having to run around with her body out for wayward shots to smash into. I do believe that female Shepard can run around and kick butt in her costume, I cannot believe that this Shining Blade lady can.
This stuff is gorgeous. Like, I would sell my heart and jewelry and vidya games to actually have that dress in my hands for a ball or a dance or for strutting about town….but if I was given that dress on the condition that I fight for my life in it, I would absolutely tell you to keep it.
Lip curling aside from a purely concept art related standpoint, jfc I would cosplay either armor set in a heartbeat.
Yes, augh. I am not thrilled with the light armor designs one bit.
GW2 seems to kind of skate the line regarding completely ridiculous armor like this. A lot of their armor sets look both awesome AND practical, but then there are other random instances of WTF like this scattered throughout. Light Armor seems to make up the bulk of that kind of crap so I’m glad I’m gonna be playing either medium or heavy armor. :/
At least they have Transmog at launch, so if I ever get inspired to play a caster I can slap something less WTF on my character.
TBF, Guild Wars isn’t the worst offender here. See TERA Online. Ugh!
Although GW tends to frequently go the “completely covered male” <-> “almost naked female” way for some armors. To the point that sometimes they just don’t look the same.
Also, playing a caster as a charr or an asura would make sure you don’t get the skimpy outfits ;)
