… it showed me places all around Tyria. Places of beauty. Places of mystery. Places of loneliness. Places of death. I asked the pale mother if she knew what my wyld hunt is about. She shook her head, but then told me about my awakening:
“It was a day we all will remember. One thousand ravens gathered on top of the home-tree. Even if it attracts many animals, it was a truly exceptional view. They just gathered and sat down, but the very moment you opened your eyes, they turned into spirits, scattering into all directions. Your glow became so bright, it enlightened the whole Caledon forest and some claim to have seen ghosts and spectres lurking around, just to disappear in the blink of an eye … I have no word of advice for you, sweet child, but I know someone who might.”
The pale mother sent me to Hoelbrak, a place in the midst of ice and snow. I was to meet a shaman, named Moda. Her eyes widened as I entered the lodge. “You are truly blessed my friend! Come closer, let me have a look on that unique aura of yours.” She explained that I have a strong connection towards the raven spirit, probably caused by my necromantic abilities. She told me my dream was a vision of the raven and my so called “wyld hunt” would be quest of it. I was supposed to create a vessel for my new companion, as I will need his guidance on my way. Moda lead me to a cavern, which was said to contain one of the raven spirits from the day of my awakening. I crafted a raven-figurine from dried up leafs and withered plantparts; then entered the cave.
Between turquoise glowing vines, on a tiny rock, sat a raven. Its eyes were glowing just like mine and it stared directly at me. In a split second my sylvari-glow illuminated the cavern and the raven turned into glowing feathers, which were magically blown onto my figurine. The planty raven turned to life and took a seat on a branch, leaning against the wall of the cave. I heard a whisper:
“You are the avatar of the raven, the keeper of winds and secrets, the wanderer between the worlds and the guide of lost spirits. Find all my facets and learn about your legacy …”

Ok guys and gurlz ;D

I thought i should enter the legendary contest too :S
The look itself was ready several month ago, the hard part was finishing the legi xD
Yesterday i finally got my Nevermore and im SO happy with that awesome staff ^,^
Just in time to enter the contest!

For the style i tried to match the legi of course. Her hair is meant to look like raven feathers and her glow matches the raven spirits colour. The chestpiece provided these cool glowing effects which add a nice spirit aura :D The only thing i knew id use right away were the boots. They match the staff so perfectly, it was no question that i would use them ^^ Finally the trickster shoulders added the feathers, this look needed ;)

For the colour-scheme i was sticking to the turquoise and brown dyes, to match the staff.

Let me know what you think! And if you like it, vote for it on reddit DyeJob! :D

Have a nice time, cya ;)

Wow, well, what can I say, it´s another perfectly executed look, definitely what I expected it to be!
The dyes are perfect, I love that you went for brownish dyes rather than black, it gives the look the nature connection that is already apparent in the staff
I love the Glacial Teal on the skirt, it looks so good on Carapace!
Her screens and her story just finish off this brilliant look, no doubt that you´ll do really well in the contest!

OMG! She is perfect ! Beautiful and scary at the same time ! *-*
The armor combo is perfect, and the colors which are so beautiful match perfectly the staff! (It's a lot of perfect but I don't care you deserve it.. xD)
Her glow fits to the raven spirit and really makes her look like she's possessed by the raven!
I loved to read that story! Amazing and very inspiring ! This is a really unique concept.. ;)
And the screenies... So beautiful too.. The locations you found fit the theme perfectly aswell!
I especially love the ones where the raven turns into a spirit!
Gold gold gold!
(btw you should really enter the legendary contest :p)

Holy moley! What a wonderful character. She looks beautiful and fierce!
The dyes are looking really awesome, I love how it all fits together with your Sylvaris skin, hair and glowing. Definately fitting your legendary as well!
Armour- mix is wonderful, I love that unique look you made especially since there are not many unique looks left with the carapace bottom piece. I love those screens and everything fits to her story. How can I not give you Gold for that

We have winner here! :D First of all congratz on Nevermore! :3
Everything here is deliberate. Starting by story, her hair, armor combination, dye job, glowing effect on leystone chest and ending at screens locations. Masterpiece :)
Have you think about Wraith Masque? It would work with shiny blue effects ;)
It's one of best look with Nevermore, love it! :)

Haha, yeah the legis cost a lot xD
The wood was like the first burden, after that comes a very cool (but sometimes frustrating) scavenger hunt :D
What took me so long were the amalgamated gemstones tho, the orb prices just wouldnt go down x(
