I used to be a supporter of the appearance tab, but no longer. My reasons are simply based on RP asthetics and immersion. Currently there are three types of armor being light, medium and heavy.

The last thing I want to see is a BH clad in heavy armor head to toe and having all that armor "masked" by a slave bikini. It makes no sense to see that on a battlefield or the open world, unless you are a light armor wearing profession.

Case in point, the mod system is beautiful. If you want to wear light armor like a slave bikini, you can, but dont expect much "coverage" in both senses of the word. It is both immersive and realistic.

In conclusion, the solution is not an appearance tab, it's for development to make better looking gear for all professions. As of this point, most of it, especially end-game and social wear, looks like crud.
