1. I think that the armor must necessarily differ depending on the gender of the character.
2. I like beautiful things, not practical ones. I hate realism in fantasy works. I want epic and cool female armor, not male armor that doesn't tell me the gender of my character.
I know that some people like this "dark souls style", where the female character is distinguished from the male only by the style of gait, but I don't like it. I like to see the difference. By the way, I love Lae armor very much. I just don't like the color of metal (???) plates, but I like the design itself. No pants for my girl!
