It's not just an inconvenience for me. :^) I made this thread to give one of many reasons why the gender lock is causing problems (in my case: classes). If all equips were gender-neutral then that would solve a lot of complaints people are posting about the fashion side of the game.
Many others have their own reason for wanting a female Mihile.
Some people only make characters to match their gender.
Others only play as the opposite or a mix.
Someone might want female-only warriors, male-only thieves, etc.
A random might prefer to make all holy/light based classes female...
Then there's a large amount of the playerbase who make females just because they have better cosmetic options.
I also know several people who would prefer a male Angelic Buster because they want a magical boy on their character squad.
P.S. I'm working with Nexon's light theme for Mihile who is the knight of light. I know there's people who completely flip themes around but you can't predict the way people design their characters.
When is the gender lock going to be removed? It's been almost 7 years since the class came out and I'm still hoping for a female Mihile. From my POV, all that needs to be adjusted are the hair, eyes, and pronouns in dialogue. I know I could always make a male and dress him up femininely, but the cash items and hairstyle I have planned out are female-only.
Example: just throw on any eyes and hair which are similar to the male version and TADA!
Can we please have the Passionate Qi Pao in the lunar new year cash shop sales? It was previously available 4 yrs ago in style boxes and has never appeared since then.
