Today we bring you screenshots of all the racial armors!

These armor sets can only be worn by the race they belong to. Racial armor consists of 3 tiers and can be bought in the capital cities. Tier 1, tier 2 and tier 3 cost 1g, 10g and 20g per piece respectively.


Asura Male, Tier 1 to Tier 3

Some cool armor although the T3 human armor is full of daggers, like they forgot Engineers can't use them. It's much more for Rangers and Theives.. not Engineers :(

But I'm sure I can find enough cool armor in there to be happy...

That tier 3 armor was my sole reason for rolling a human scholar.

Does anyone know where the human female necromancer outfit comes from? The one that looks like Alice from Madness returns? I wanna see if it is profession specific or my mesmer can wear it.

The Sylvari outfits look awesome. Everytime I see something new about this game Aug 28 seems that much further away! :(

Human Female Light & Medium Armor progression:
Tier 1 - cool looking yet practical
Tier 2 - cool looking yet practical
Tier 3 - slutty & hooker

Fortunately the Seraph armor breaks that trend.

I really wish the Tier 1 Norn female medium looked more like its male version.  As is, it looks like a bathtowel wrapped around her, tantilizing the 14 yo males with a design that looks like it might slip off at any moment...  Or the thong on the norn female heavy t3...

I think the sylvari need more variation - its all leaves.  More bark (say for the heavy sets) or other plant structures/textures than the same one they're repeating over all the sets.

None of the armor is profession-specific.  It is either light, medium, or heavy.  So, anything you've seen on a necromancer can be worn by a mesmer.  If you're talking about the armor that I think you are, then yes, mesmer can wear it.

Love the racial armor sets available. This makes chosing a race for each class all the more a difficult choice. I wish there was a third Heavy Armor Class option now.

The tier'd armor is very nice for humans. They should add, a second tier 3 set for the Engineer though, or replace the daggers with tools as an option for the human tier 3 leather set. OR they could just add daggers to the engineer as a weapon.

Glad to see Sereph available to Humans for Tier 3 heavy armor.

Can't wait to see crafted armor sets.

If this is true, I will be sticking with human has my race, as I just find that armor to be AMAZING.

The Armor is this btw:

Yeah, that is non-race specific light armor.  You should be able to wear it as female human, norn, or sylvari, although the design may be different slightly for norn and sylvari.  I would expect female asura and charr to wear something almost identical to what the males wear, instead, though.

Same! I've always been in love with this concept art, so it brings me infinite joy to see they have recreated it so well in game.

I could not find the Charr racial armor vendor during the BWE except for the tier 1 >_< I pretty sure I missed something big xD. Anyway, It's cool seeing them here ! I must say, I'm disappointed to see they went with some huge shoulder pads here... (on the Charr mainly)

Edit : And now we can be sure DE's members are just wearing their T3 racial armor :P

Some of the Sylvari racials look so sloppy in my opinion. I'm not sure about them.

Many of these would be so nice without the tents stapled to peoples butts.
