The Daily Grind: How realistic should MMO armor be?


One of the things that has me excited about New World is the specific realism of its armor. If I’m playing a warrior type of toon in a more realistic MMO, I really strongly prefer to have heavier armor. Maybe I don’t want to fully rock the “boxy” armor look, but I also don’t want my character’s boobs hanging out while she’s fighting. New World seems to be striking a good balance, with realistic-enough armor and a ton of detail to make it not just look like a blob of leather and metal.

Of course, if I’m playing a cartoony game, boob plate bothers me less, and I’m way more likely to dress cute. And no matter what, I want good hair!
