Cod has a new campaign, new weapons, new multiplayer levels every year. Zelda has been recycling the same weapons, villains, and dungeons since the 80's. Zelda recycles enough to make cod blush. The same weapons, villains, dungeons, and princess in every single Zelda for the most part. It's almost as cheesy as bowser vs Mario round 35
More seriously, Tera's armor has an intricacy that is somewhat useless in a video game. But they still bothered to render things like multiple types of material, layering fabrics, variable stitching, belts, buckles, braces, piping, etc.
Like one could actually wear many of Tera's outfits and shoes if someone designed them. Which they did!
This is unbelievable as armor for an MMO:
^ these shoes, holy shit....
And if one is able to run the game at maximum settings the animation, textures and overall fidelity is beyond anything I know of in a Western playable MMORPG.

Oh I think they are well done, I just don't like the look of them.

Swinging some huge sword at the spiders from Mars, in any of Bowie`s extravagant outfits from over the decades.

The Tera armour does look good. Will have to nosey some time, not played in ages & don`t recall much of it.
Oddly, the Guild Wars skins you could buy, I thought some looked good, you`ll rarely ever see me out of my Grenth outfit, but even some of the standard/elite gear looked quite good.
As for gw2, a combination of town clothes & in general some fairly sucky gear designs, I think they could of done soooo much better.
When I played I mained a Charr & by the dead gods, Charr armour really sucked the sphericals.
Luckily I had HoM skins which were a huge improvement over the normal gear (I mean come on, big fat male Charr Ele in something that looked like a mini skirt!?)

There are three playable classes. David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust, and The Codpiece from Labyrnth.
I did not have any issue with the 'sexuality' of Tera or the skimpiness of the armor. Frankly, ever since WoW re-did their level 1-60 gear I haven't had much of anything truly sexy to wear in many games (though I put together some interesting looks in Rift). I find it interesting that people still complain about it when I struggle to find cute looks that don't make me look like a robot (full coverage plate) or a nun (long-sleeved robes -_-). (Emphasis on "cute" as I could piece together some things for maximum skin exposure in GW2, but it would not be pretty -- not many of the sets in GW2 are in the first place. :P)
Unfortunately, no Tera for me, I have to play the game with kids in the room.

I can only hope the only reason the armor in GW2 is still kind of disappointing, is because they start releasing at level 0, so any new piece is a +1.
What I always had trouble with is I follow the concept artists of Guild Wars very actively. I sometimes find unreleased pieces on their websites. For example this one by Daniel Dociu. Why I love this piece is because it's much more armor than it currently is, even though it's still not exactly protective. But much more creative.
In Tera the female stances are absolutely horrid. Seriously, have you seen the standing animation? Who the FUCK stands like that?
It's like every one of them are runway whores just begging to get ass-fucked.
Great armor design though.
