His goal was first to make sure the jungle remains free of poachers, hunters, travelers.
but after years spending in the jungle with the vicious animals living there,
his habits have changed him into a vicious killer himself.....
He now hunts down anyone wandering in his area.
Setting relentless deadly traps,Lurking in the dark foggy waters of the jungle or who knows somewhere up a tree watching every step you make.
You could already been killed before you see it coming.
So beware of the jungle predator and his deadly animals who are his allies... before you enter his jungle.
Only the most experienced will survive ... or will they ?
As u may think how would he eat if he doesnt kill the animals or eat them? well.. you figure out what he does with his prey wandering in his jungle.
Each pet has their own story which is connected to one of the weapons of the jungle predator.
he has given them names Like: the dreadwing to his black moa, Araneae to his spider, Bandit to his hyena and last but not least the jaguar.
Named after the predator himself.... he has become one with the animals. and they work together throughout the jungle to hunt you down...

I already told you what I think about this look in game but I'm gonna tell you again:
The dyes and the armor combination is amazing. The face with that mask is really cool!
Good job :)

You tooke armor pieces like the bladed chast and the jungle theme, which were use quiet often lately and made into a super cool and original look! I love how every armor piece has so many details.
The screens are amazing and totaly fit the story :)

Wow.. when I wachted all your screenshots I was wondering, what race he is.
He looks as bestial as a charr, powerful as a norn and as elemental as a sylvari..
In the end it was a human and i was really surprised.
Im excited about this look. Really really great job..Tons of gold for you!

Wow. From top to bottom this is an amazing look, even despite some reservations I have.

For starters, your screens are stunning. They not only display the name-sake predator that your character is, but they also demonstrate that evocative relationship between ranger and pet. My favorite screen is the 15th one (5th to last) where he's wading through reeds in the swamp. It's eerily reminiscent of a crocodile treading water.

In addition, your description and story are very intuitive and creative. I'm a little jealous (and probably biased) in how much I like them as I had a similar idea for my own ranger for her weapons, but I have give you props for pulling it off in a such a creative way. Dread-wing in relation to a bird, Araneae in relation to an arachnid, and even a Bandit shiv in relation to the sly scavenger that Hyenas are. Very fitting. My one nitpick is your choice of torch. I am curious as to why you went with Combustion. Are one of your pets named after it? It would be interesting to see a more natural looking torch, something like Godskull, Ogre, or even the Warden torch as I think it would be more fitting to the jungle theme.

While I don't usually comment on hair or faces, given the suitable choices here, I feel obligated to mention them. The hairstyle you chose is really befitting to your story. The color and texture is quite appropriate for a hunter that's lived in the jungle for an extended period of time, and it blends almost seamlessly with the headgear you chose. In certain shots, it even appears like a part of the helm, less like hair and more like an elaborate hunting headpiece. In addition, the eye color you chose, framed by the headgear, gives your character an inhuman and primal appearance. Like a human possessed by the spirit of the jungle, or a spirit taken physical form.

With regards to your armor and dye choice, I am both pleased and skeptical of your decisions. Your helm, shoulders, pants and boots are all good selections. Even disregarding how well it matches your hair and face, the helm is quite fitting to your theme. It's made of bone and leather and is something I can very much see being cobbled together in the wild. Your spaulders are equally as suitable. The colors you chose give them a real natural bark and moss appearance and the same can be said of your pants; elaborate leggings already falling to the wear and tear of the jungle and having to be held together with leather straps. And despite the metal on your boots, even the way you dyed them look natural. The colors on both metal and leather make them seem worn and stained from constant traversal in the jungle.

However, your chest and gloves leave me skeptical. Parts of these pieces look really natural and are fitting to your overall nature theme. The dyes you chose make the green portions of your chestpiece look like a weave of palm leaves while the brown parts appear to be leather reinforcement. Compared to the rest of your armor pieces though, the metal on your gloves and chestpiece don't appear to match your theme as smoothly. I understand that your character is a hunter that didn't come from the jungle but instead migrated to it, but I would have anticipated the metal of his armor to have been discarded after years in such a humid and wet environment or at least be worn away, like the ones on his boots. I think a change in gloves to ones like the Accursed vambraces, Emblazed gloves, Strider armguards or even the Carapace Vambraces (if you still want some metal) would fit this jungle concept better. And while I don't suggest changing the chestpiece, as I think the metal on your chest is a nice reflection of the metallic choker on your moa's neck, I think dyeing the metal a more worn and rusted color would help better demonstrate the jungle theme of this character and environment he's been in. That said, these are minor issues that I think do not directly detract from your look, but can help in its refinement. Here is a visual aid showing some examples of change, particularly gloves and dye choices (http://i.imgur.com/bacYgbw.png)

In regards to your originality, your combination is pretty original. While I have noticed a few of these pieces used together before, specifically the Bladed chest piece and Strider spaulders, I haven't yet seen a look with all of these pieces together. This particular combination coupled with your creative concept makes this quite a unique look.

Altogether, this look is amazing. Your screenshots are well-done and your story and description are very creative. This is strongly reflected in your dyes, armor and weapon choices yet I believe some refinements can be made by swapping out one or two pieces and dyeing some of your armor differently. The aspects of originality in both armor/dye/weapon combinations and concept make for an exceptional look.

Geez thats one of the longest comments i have ever read haha but oke so first off. i like to pretend i found a crashed airplane and made the combustion myself. i know i didnt pick the most fitting colors like u said it should be worn out. i thougt about it. but like u said it fits my moa. next to this... my hands i choose them to match the rest in its normal way because the one u suggested are so overused with bark looks or just those themes. i've seen them everywhere and like u said yourself he did not start in the jungle at first. i dig the idea u showed with the dyes on the metal tho. havent been able to get it as nice looking as u previewed. but thanks for the feedback mate. glad u like it

I'm not 100% sure what to think about Rusttooth. I get how it fits in the jungle theme, but i just don't feel it with this gear.
This is the only kinda negative thing i can say about this, I agree with all the other positive comments in every other aspect of this ;)
Have another gold! :D
