The new trading post in WoW Patch 10.0.5 brings a lot of new transmog. Including a chain mail in bikini size. In the course of equality, this will not only be available to female but also to male characters.
Blizzard has been on a crusade against sexism and for equality in WoW for almost a year now (buy now ). The reasons for this are known and do not need to be chewed through again. In some places this approach is certainly perfectly okay, but in other places it is often discussed whether it is not going too far.
This news will certainly also be discussed, although it is actually nothing new for WoW. Because in contrast to other MMOs, there was never a significant difference between armor for male and female characters (or as it is now called: body 1 and body 2) in the world of Azeroth anyway.
New chain bikini – also for male characters
The Trading Post, coming to the game in Patch 10.0.5, will bring a host of new cosmetic rewards. Including countless new transmog items. Some we already know from the past and they are now returning to the game, while others are completely new.
The chain bikini belongs to the latter dataminer found in the data from WoW Patch 10.0.5 and which does not yet have an official name. It’s not even clear if the “chain” bikini is really chain armor or will rather be accessible to all armor classes. But it is clear that it can be used by male and female characters.

While the chain bikini on the female characters is relatively unspectacular and gives a familiar picture, some people will probably get used to the sight of a man in a bikini. How do you like the new armor set and can you imagine strolling through Valdrakken with your male character in a chain bikini? Or do you prefer to wrap yourself in armor that offers a little more protection.
