I am surprised you want her wearing anything really. laugh


That's actually a good idea, I only briefly played ESO but I remember it having gear craftable in different cultural styles.

I want my character to be a cleric/mage/ranger/whatever, not a pom pom girl.

More options through vendors would be ok (for rp perspective). But pleaaaase, make them optionals, not mandatory. I hate when the more powerfull mage robe/armor in a game is a display of my character's anatomy and that I have to wear it if I want the good stats XD


Why does only what you want matter tho?
People are asking for more diverse options that's all.

I don't really like typical gear like we have right now, it really does nothing for me especially the robes ( I prefer spellcasters ).
Why should the gear just all revolve around what you want?
I think you can deal with some gear here and there that doesn't suit your taste, just like how I have to deal with it with basically every other gear set.
I don't mind having access to optional transmogs, but at the same time I don't think that all of the gear by default should have to be modesty approved by the nun across the street.

I really wish we could drop this notion of realism too.
If you don't like it then just say it, there's no need to try and justify your dislike for it by arguing about realism. The gear isn't realistic and when we get into things like robes and clothes they're not going to protect you.

Edit: So long as it's in line with the setting of Baldur's Gate ofc.
In which skimpy gear already exists.


It's really a question of realism for me though. A half nude female warrior breaks the immersion for me. Why a warrior/ranger/etc. would wear an armor like that? I might be biased because I am myself a female and I don't see the appeal of this kind of stuff, though (I don't find hyper-sexy women attractives) wink
I admit I am a bit fed up with oversexualized women in video games.

sorry if I don't use the right words, english is not my first langage and I'm a bit rusty.

This whole thread is so hilarious... Please just wait for mods.

Also, I'm sure the developers will put in some sort of "sexy" armor without it being straight up pornographic. And by sexy I mean a few pieces of armor that show off more of your pc's figure either through being a bit more form fitting or having a reasonable balance of skin shown vs. covered. As a female player I don't want to see something like a mage robe with a huge plunging neckline down to my naval just to show off my cleavage out in the open world for no reason. Unless something like that is on a character where it makes at least some sense like a female drow sorcerer in Menzoberranzan, I could do without it.

Although... Larian, if you're reading this, I just want to say that if there's armor made with a boob window for female pcs then there better be a boob window for male pcs as well. That's just equality, babes ;~*

What's the point of armor looking realistic when combat is not realistic?

If everything isn't pure blue, why not make everything pure red?

Yeah this thread is very odd and very surprising how quickly it has grown vs many more important things, though I guess the pictures bloat the page count.

Either way, I maintain choice is good, if there is the occosional skimpy outfit available, as long as it kinda fits thematically I am certainly all for choice. Beauty is in the eye (or oh so many horrible eyes) of the beholder after all.

For example the Drow or certain factions/religions. Witcher universe did it with Sorceresses because Magic and style went hand in hand, that works for me.

Immersion. And also people fed up with oversexualization(particularly of women but not solely) in not only video games but pretty much any kind of media that exists. In song lyrics, in photographs, in movies and in video games. Fact is, game developers have been much slower in tuning that down compared to other media formats which has been debated over years why that is. Because it's the youngest media format? Because it's a business still mostly dominated by males? Because it's the last bastion in modern society where guys expect to be allowed to be guys and giggle over seeing some boobies, even if they are animated? I don't know. But I think its time for developers to stand up and embrace the female population of players and tell them, we do not see you, your gender or your bodies as sex objects. So I love that larian has kept the cloths and armor a bit more realistic. Now, I know that there ofc are women that would like skimpy clothing on their characters as well. But that should be a choice, not being forced upon them in the majority of video games. And nudity is more than welcome, if it is presented in the right context. I feel that Larian gets that. and so do more developers each day. And that's good smile

Bad combat breaks immersion just as fast as half naked gears.. Just saying.

I really don't have a dog in the sexy outfits fight (though I'd be fine with sexy outfits if they were in the game). I was only reacting to the "It's not realistic" claim because if we're going to be talking about things that are not realistic, bikini armor will be quite far down my list of things that are not realistic (and thereby immersion-breaking). And, while on that point, if sexy armor is unrealistic in battle, then wearing armor at all during a romantic scene or a sex scene is equally unrealistic and immersion-breaking.

It's almost amusing how a blatant troll thread managed to climb on top of the most active topics in this subforum.

There never seems to be any achievable middle ground when it comes to this topic?

For me, escapist entertainment that insists on being "realistic" when it comes to gender armor that might be revealing, just because of the ongoing watercooler chatter from those who are hardwired to take offense, is easily muted or pacified by games including options for those for whom modern sensibilities of realistic attire seems ridiculous within a fantasy setting.

If you are asking "how is this skimpy armor supposed to be effective?" then you clearly didn't account for the fact that the armored parts are the only points we men can focus at.

It would actually be funny if there was some sexy robes or something in the game that gives disavantage to humanoid male characters attacks devil
Anyway, the city of baldurs gate at least should have a shop for all our clothing needs smile
