      While many armors on both lists are indeed heavy, a couple of them come with light variants. Terra Armor collection, in particular, has many many light male armor pieces to play around with.

    Looking for armor for women? THERE IS NONE. Just trash and more trash. Men always get the cool respectable armor, women are treated like cattle, empty vessels, a hole made for one thing and one thing alone.

      Some of these, TERA mod especially has all the armors in female variants as well. Also, we full on plan to assemble a list of top armor mods for female characters so stay tuned 🙂
