...it did. Remember how I was on a great hunt for a decent outfit earlier? I was surprised at the difficulty to find decent-looking clothing for female characters wearing light armour in Guild Wars. The skirt in the screenshot above came to my knees and didn't look skimpy at first sight. That is, until I started swimming.
I guess it's partly my own fault, because the skirt came with stockings that I didn't really like. I dyed them in the colour of my skin, so it looked like I wasn't wearing them. What I didn't realize was that that colour influenced my undies as well!
Despite what it may sound like, I'm not strongly opposed to skimpy clothing in games. I do wish games would treat gender more equally, though. I played TERA for a day, and the skimpy-looking male characters really cracked me up. (Even though they still look less skimpy than the average female character in that game, but hey, it's a step in the right direction.) While I love Guild Wars for its gameplay, the way they are handling female armour will always bug me.
