I created out a new vaguely-Canthan-themed outfit to celebrate Lunar New Year!

Time to dust off my old Dragon Jade weapons, and pick out some armor skins that go with that. I used the Emblazoned Shoulders, Accursed Vembraces and Carapace Boots for the Dragon jade look.

I am pretty happy that this also gave me the opportunity to use the Leystone Jerkin, because I think it looks fantastic, but demands for a special occasion.

Edit: Thanks everybody for the feedback! Most of you are asking me to ditch the Leystone Jerkin. Then also, that the red was too much (and I agree that it comes across too intense on this chest piece). So I changed things up and added an alternative look!

I am now fully committing to the Dragon's Jade look, so I dyed the Leystone Jerkin (sorry, everybody ^^) jade green. Some of the weapons also have a red ribbon, so I exchanged the pants for Seeker pants and added the red ribbon look that way.

I'm pretty happy with it. :)


Two words. Strider's. Top. Everything else is awesome!

Love the colors! And it fits great with the shield :D Don't like that top though, maybe try some other ones? :)

Don´t go for the Strider´s Top, you look way more original like this! I do kinda get an Asian vibe from this, so I´d keep it
And I really like your dye scheme, some more screens in the Lunar New year area would be great ^^

Thank you all for your comments :)

I used Strider's last year, actually! http://i.imgur.com/1gHtGAa.png

And way back, when the Dragon Jade weapons were first released, the Buccaneer coat. I really liked that one.

For this year, I wanted something different, so I considered a few other chest pieces - among them Studded, Illustrious, Forgeman, Inquest and Priory. I would have probably picked different shoulders/gloves/boots/pants for those as well.

But the Leystone Jerkin has really won me over. :)

The problem with DR right now is that the warm golden light sucks the green out of the screenshot, so it all ends up looking a bit drab. I'll see if I can get some better screenshots later though :)

I really like the armor combination, but I guess that the main red is too...red :p

Yes, different top. You could add to it a little green and gold (small details) and it would be perfect, everything else seems pretty awesome!

Well, I updated the look... Probably not in the way you were expecting! Hehe.
