These characters are both Meridian Centurions guarding the main Defiant city in Rift. So the ranks and roles are equivalent. And yet the guy gets a full set of studded armour and the girl gets a skimpy bikini.
The actual player gear is fine, but this NPC armour difference is really pushing it. I think what struck me more was that they’re equivalent ranks in the same army so they should at least be in a uniform that matches.
I’ve seen a lot of really nice NPC clothing in the game, so … it’s just the actual army who fight in bikinis I guess. Hurrah for technomagic.
