Hey ! o/
New look for my warrior. As I had already created looks somehow inspired by Zeus and Poseidon, I decided to do a series on the gods of Olympus. For this one I tried to make an Athena inspired look.

Athena is the goddess of war so I thought it would be more appropiate to do the look on my warrior. I wanted her to look like a greek godess, and it all started with the chest/legs combo. I liked the details on the sleeves on the top, the overall form of the skirt and all the metallic details.

To accentuate the greek goddess aspect, I chose the wreath and those shoulders. And I think the details on the shoulders go well with the details on the skirt.
For the gloves and boots I chose the ornate guild ones cause they seem to fit well with the rest of the armor and I like the shape of them especially the boots which don't make the legs look too big ^^
I also use in some of the screens the vigil helmet, which seems to look pretty close to Athena's helmet.

For the dyes, I chose a mix of white/grey/gold to reflect the dignified and pure aspect of a goddess, for the nice contrast with the black skin, and to match the backpiece !
And for the weapons I tried to find greyish and refined weapons like Skybringer, Truth, Beacon of Light, Tempest's Warhorn...
It's sad spears don't exist yet, but at least I tried to find a shield which looks like the one of Athena I think.
I took the screens in EotM and lost precipice Guild hall.

I hope you guys like it :)

Wow, another amazing character! It is stunning how you succeeded in making Norn cultural armour like Greek armour
Even though team dyes seem so monochrome on first glance, this is such an exquisite dye scheme that doesn't loose interest for one second!
Especially like the shield here
and the screens are to die for, I didn't even know there were such greekish places in GW2!
Have all the gold!!

I love her!
The armor you chose seems pretty original and hte dyes make it fit together perfectly. The vigil backpack is genius, it accentuates the warrior aspect very well.
Great screens, as always :) The edge of the mist is a perfect location for your theme.
My gold for the goddes! :)

wooow, what a great look, the screens and the armour itself are dope and your weaponchoice is just so spot on
the only tiniest critique I have is this: for the Greek goddess look I personally don´t find this very dark skin tone 100% fitting
Doesn´t really hurt your look overall though, just a tiny thing that would have a difference I think
btw I prefer the Vigil Helmet over the laurels, makes her look totally fierce!
gold :3

Great dye job, Ace. Can't wait for watching more looks with this theme.

Btw, what helmet is this (not the laurel ones, the greek one)?

Yes you're right about the skin ...! I decided to keep it because I wanted to keep the old zodiac look and still use it ^^ I tried pale skin with a makeover kit, but with zodiac armor it didn't look good, so I only changed hair color :(
I wish I had more characters sometimes! :x
And thank you for the positive comment! :D

Thanks ! :)
The helmet is the one from the vigil armor. You can buy it in Gendarran Fields at the Vigil Keep if you belong to the Vigil ! ^^

I gotta agree with the skin tone, but i can understand your reason for keeping it, and it won't affect my full gold rating as always ;)

Black or white skin I will love your look in the same way! :) Very nice greek and warlike theme with well chosen elements. I'm not sure I love more Wreath or Helmet ^_^ Your screens are so on spot and fitting to mythology.
Personally I would go for more green Wreath of Cooperation, but as I said I love everything about your look :)

You can't. It depends on the light. On some screens you can see the pupils actually ^^
