    Default New Cleric Hireling "swimsuit" outfits

    After one of the recent updates (it was either Shadowfell or something very near to that timeframe), I started to notice some of the female cleric hirelings showing a lot more skin. I don't know if this was true for other classes -- as a solo adventurer, I drag a cleric hireling along with me on most quests, and don't get to see much of the other classes except occasionally a fighter for one of my less combat-intensive characters (my pure Rogue or my Sorc/Rogue).

    I may be in the minority here, and I realize this is just a fantasy game, but I'd like to throw my vote in (in spite of being a male player) as preferring the old, fully armored appearances. A more "risque" outfit would fit a sorcerer or wizard, for whom physical armor is irrelevant, and freedom of movement a major concern. But on the (at least partially) combat-oriented clerics, it looks a little weird from a gaming perspective to have them running around like they're headed for a Paris catwalk.

    (And it could just be an overactive imagination, but I swear Flower looks like she wants to kill someone over this indignation.)

    I'm not saying I'm *surprised* that someone decided, "Hey, we should make these chicks look more like Boris Vallejo hired them."

    But for what it's worth, I'd support returning to the old look, or a newer but more combat-appropriate look. Especially if other combat-intensive classes were similarly affected.

    (Although I'll admit, she could have always been that grumpy, and I just never noticed before.)

    Kinda curious and level 7 I grabbed Flower. And I LOLed. Hard.

    OH MY .... THAT IS AWFUL! LOL.

    I'm not prude or anything, but more from like a *good taste* perspective that is *bad*. I get the feeling that DDO is just NOT taking things seriously

    Do they have new outfits, or are they still naked from when we lost outfits, and hires never got their's back?

    It's not just the hirelings. They are wearing armor kits that you can buy in the store. So you too can look like a cut-rate stripper if you want to.

    I really, really wish the artists would crack open a book or two about armor.
