Dont know if its just me,
but i find that Light armors tend to look better than medium armor
For example, i see about 5 or 6 really cool male light armor and 10 female light armor that i really liked.
But for medium armor, i feel that they are somehow ugly and not as good looking as light armor. For med armor i only found 1 female med armor(order of whispers) and 2 male medium armor. All the other looked really dull and plain, and far duller than the average looking light armor

Off topic: Bringing heavy armor in, i find way more cool looking male armor as compared to medium too. I guess going ranger has its disadvantages...

if someone could get me some cool looking pictures of medium armor for both sexes(i browsed most of them already) i would rest easy.

i disagree with everything you just said --

good thing we can have differing opinions

did you really need to make a post about your likes and dislikes -- no insult intended

but this isnt even the start of a good discussion

Light armor seems to have the most variety. An overwhelming majority of medium armors are long coats. When you're playing your character you see them from behind, so all you'll see is a long coat just like every other long coat. I'd really like to see a wider range of armors that aren't long coats. This album is only female characters, but male characters have the same problem.

I know GW1 is a completely different game, but the medium armor there was not mostly long coats.

I hoped we'd see more variety of chest armor pieces in GW2. Maybe there will be more at release we just haven't found yet...

I agree. That's one of the thing it's driving me a bit away from main Ranger...armors looks all the same, everyone with a little detail to make it unque, but always a long coat.

Excluding this one, which i like a lot.

But it's one out of...what, 30?

3 of those 12 are definitely long coats. Look at the rear views to be sure. Even if all 12 were not long coats, though, that still is not "at least half."

which 3? Like I said, leather skirt != long coat. Heck coat != long coat

Also, I did say I missed some, like this one:

http://donoftheslum....om/mNiF2sqja/76

That's a dress, not a long coat and this:

http://donoftheslum....om/mNiF2sqja/88

Is a skirt, again not a long coat


And this one is about pants:

http://donoftheslum....om/mNiF2sqja/94


Plus the very first armor, that's 15 out of 26 which is more than half



Also, this one is arguably a long skirt, not a long coat:
