I think Blizzard was just pandering to the young male teenage audience that is probably a significant part of their subscriber base. But as the subscriber base has expanded, I think they decided to be a little less silly. Although there are still times where we wonder about the developers.The entire Hodir daily quest series for example.But as Alex said, its not generally been all THAT bad, and there were ways to mitigate the silliness if you wanted to.My Paladin (human female) had some rather skimpy pants when she was in her low 70s (more like metal leggings with a metal thong bottom - owie) that I used as healing gear, I beleive they were older greens from BC. I have at various points had gear that exposed far more than I thought was really appropriate. I always had this impression of looking at her like a father and saying "young lady, you are *not* going into the dungeon dressed like that!"My tailor main promptly created her a Stylish Red Shirt that covered up properly, and she was good to go.Her current gear (prot) is really good, darker hues, and completely covers her, quite appropriate I think.

Sigh. There are simply no words.
