Skimpy armors in GW2–A list

A list of sexy and skimpy armor in Guild Wars 2 with their methods of acquisition.

Notes

  • Keep in mind that the term skimpy only applies to Human and Norn characters. Charrs and Asuras don’t show much skin and it is hard to separate armor from their body for Sylvari.
  • Want see the entire PvP locker armor (good representation of PvE armor models)? Check out the PvP armor gallery. There is also the dungeon/cultural armor/weapon gallery too.
  • While some of these armor have level requirements, you can always use transmutation stones to use them on lower level characters. There is no reason to look ugly because you are on a low level character.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAH (not exaggerating or being sarcastic)

  • Mihir

    After having played Tera, these aren’t skimpy :p

  • Geist

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!

  • Chelsea

    Such a poor selection of skimp armor for the medium armor classes.

  • Violenthungryhippo

    Where’s skimpy for male leather wearers that aren’t Norn?! This is a disappoint!

  • Smokeskin

    So GW2 doesn’t have any skimpy outfits.

  • Bunny

    Aweful aweful AWEFUL stuff!

    Made a collection of male skimp chest pieces

  • Nemain

    Bought the Pit Fighter heavy armor for karma in Fields of Ruin (Heart vendors).
    I assume the other armors are avalable from Heart vendors in other areas, check the Karma vendor lists if you’re looking for them in PvE.

  • SpiralCee

    Thank you for posting this!

  • Imaginos

    Most of those are hardly skimpy, especially from the back, where you’ll be staring at your character for 90% of the game.

    ArenaNet just loves gigantic tents stapled to peoples asses. They need to stop that crap as it’s destroying some great armor looks.

  • Yraen

    The PvE source for the Medium “PvP Leather” set is the “Duelist” armor set. It appears to be all dropped and all Exotic quality… and the price is quickly rising on the trading post.

  • http://www.avinasharora.com/ Avinash Arora

    As usual Dulfy, your hard work astounds and impresses me. Thanks!!

  • Norek

    The heavy armor listed as PvP Knight is craftable by an Armor Smith at 350, its the Masterwork quality Barbaric set, and the one listed as PvP Gladiator, is crafted at 375, its the Rare quality Gladiator set.

  • Ben Rubinstein

    Yeah, the male options are really disappointing. Fix this, ArenaNet!

  • Kwazimodo

    Am going back to TERA

  • Zekarus

    The first armor, “PvP Champion”, is a craftable one for PvE.

  • Skarrix

    Male Light Armour: PvP Acolyte -> The PVE is called Feathered, available on the Trading Post so it’s probably a drop? Possibly also karma?

  • Vaelkyrie

    PvP Gladiator– PvE source: unknown
    This one is level 35 crafted rare armor, you can get the recipes from the master armorsmith, at least from the one in the citadel (charr captial). “Gladiator Chestplate” is the naming theme.

  • Ris

    The PVP Tactical armor can be found completing the hearts of Fireheart Rise (60-70) zone, and the PVP Pit Fighter can be found in specific hearts of Snowden Drifts (15-25 zone)

  • Akhaandir

    The first light armor set listed for females, the PVP champion one, the pve version of it is the Winged set, Dont know where it drops though

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      crafted, it is the tailoring 300ish set

  • qwerty

    pvp armageddon set is exotic karma set in orr

  • Dagani

    The PVP Champion Light armou PVE equivalent is the Carrion Winged set. It is a lvl 65 crafted armour

  • Azshar Ra

    PvP Wizard – PvE source: unknown

    in WvW with badges

  • ena

    FUNNY THING is, people complained to ANet about gear not covering the vital parts… Now that Anet covers them, ppl want skimpy! MAKE up ur minds!
