Something has risen from the bottom of the sea and she is bringing Krait and pestilence with her. With a hissed cursed from her lips whole villages are rotting away and Kraits will slither through the streets and enslave everyone they encounter. Through the magic of her illusions this sorceress managed to grasp an army of Krait and submit them to her will. When the goals of the Nightmare Court didn´t quite fit her diabolic standards anymore, this creature descended to the bottom of the sea, where the corals and seaweed embraced her and taught her powerful spells. Now she is back on the surface to rain destruction and chaos from her Krait pillar. Surely she is most dangerous when encountered in water, but counting on her weakness on land would be a silly mistake....
What she brought with her from the bottom of the ocean seems likes rubbish and trash, rotten pieces of sharks and moldy spears, but when she wields Carcharias to go hunting with it, no fish (or disobedient citizen) will go unharmed.


EDIT: She is now an entry for the Legendary Contest.
My second entry for the Legendary Contest based on the legendary spear Kamohoali'i Kotaki. I don´t own the legendary yet, but provided the pre for the screens which already looks fairly close to the endresult.

I lately remade my mesmer and the results turned out better than expected. I wanted to create a regal witch, something related to the underwater legendaries (or at least their pres) and with a challenging dye scheme since all my other Sylvari are more or less monochrome. Cultural pieces were used to indicate seaweed and corals and I tried to find weapons that looked like they were from the bottom of the sea.
Screening wasn´t not the most fun I ever had, because Orr just wants to kill you in its entirety and the Krait also were very keen on bringing me down, but I think the results were worth it!
Let me know what you think about her ^^

What a beautiful and fearsome witch! Her armour is stunning, from head to toe she looks goregeous and perfect. I love this interesting and really cool choice of colours which are fitting to her hair, skin tone and the glowing :3
The screens are as always amazing, both of the underwater weapons are truely made for her and I think she is worth contesting and winning the Legendary Contest, just give it a try!

Concept, armor choice, colors. Everything about this looks really nice to me. The underwater weapons don't get much love, but with this look they surely will take you far in the contest.
While I'm not a big fan of the pearl weapons (the staff in this case) it's fitting to the theme so I won't vote down just because of it. But I surely belive there might be other staff out there that can fill that slot.

Haha, yeah, I usually also despise the Pearl weapons xD
There were some more expensive skins (and the Gorseval staff), but to be honest I didn´t want to spend that much gold on a staff for a mesmer ^^"
Ty for the super kind words though!

Awesome! Though you could always use more Orrian weapons.

I might consider it for pistol or staff ^^ Most of them look a bit dull sadly, not as cool as the Greatsword :/

WOW!
Such a great concept :O
She really looks like she comes from underwater. The orange colour resembles the corals you have in the first screen, its brilliant!
The weapons match PERFECTLY and the underwater precursors look right at home! And the screens are absolutely amazing!!!!!! Its so refreshing to see nice underwater screens ^,^
You have become one of my absolute favorite stylists here, you always have wonderful creations! Keep up the good work and ill continue my Gold votes ;D

This is really beautiful. We need some underwater zones for farming, so everyone could see underwater legendary weapons. :) Gold!

Thank you! And yeah, so true, it´s really sad that they are reducing the underwater content so much, the underwater legendaries are so lovely!

Somehow looks familliar ^^
Personally not the biggest fan of the shield, I think Orrian Shield might fit better.
Obviously like the the color shceme, and the underwater style :)

I've been meaning to comment on this look so here I am XD.

What I love about this look is that it is such a great example of your signature style: versatile, playful and unique. The idea of an underwater Sylvari is well-executed here, especially with the color scheme. Gold! :)
