After the terrible loss of the previous owner who ''Caladbolg'' belonged to. (not trying to spoil anything for ppl that didnt do story yet) It has become her duty to take care of it. Her mission is to find out how it can be brought back to life and find a way to make it back in it's original state. The pale tree choose her because she is the warden of life. She is known for healing things. She is born to keep the legacy of Ventari alive. and now also the legendary ''Caladbolg''. her story is just beginning... and there's more to come.

Hi guys! this is my new sylvari revenant look. I decided i wanted to make use of the caladbolg sword. and tried to work colors around it. I used braham leggings because the fur could work like it's some flowers to match the blossom on the back.
The look also gives a feeling of bringing summer back. after these long cold nights we had way to long >.Hope you like her.

great screens, but the armour itself feels a bit random to me, especially the pants, what´s up with that?
I miss some pink in the shoulders

you know how about I feel about the pants already, so I´ll not mention those anymore
I love the dyes and the light feeling she got apart from the pants reads summer to me
Also great screens, gold

I don't know how to feel about the pants. It looks good, but out of place. It's not like if it really matters actually.
Because she's beautiful ! I love the colors, the screens, the glowing on the gloves, her haircut, everything so beautiful ! You really did a great job.
Big gold with a lot of flowers !

I don't have an issue with the pants the way you dyed them makes some parts of the pants to look plant like fitting the sylvari look.

Uh, your screens are so nice and colorfull! Well done!
I really like the mix. There is much going on, but that makes it look more alive i think :)
You already know, that I really like the vibrant colors and the weapons ;)
Take gold^^

Nice armor combination! Personally I would make those green dyes a bit darker with a bit less of color, but that's my opinion.
About the screenshots, I miss screenshots that are seen behind the character, but I like the screenshots you did post :)

Very nice outfit, fitting the caladbolg! :D
Personally i dont really get the hate on certain armor-pieces. People seem to be so picky when it comes to terms of "fitting the theme". Yeah these pants have a nornish style ... so they can only be used for Norns now???? Sometimes its also about picking pieces to create a nice silhouette or simply to bring in a bit more uniqueness. All the super fitting combs have been done several times already i guess ... so we should accepts some braver concepts, if we want to see looks that are new to this site imo!
Ok, now that the rant is over ... i love your colour-concept and the overall theme! (i think ive only seen a caladbolg-look once)
Your screens are super sharp this time :O
How did you boost up your graphics like this? o.O
Great look and great presentation, Gold from me!

I really like the concept it's very bright and colourful and also matches your sword pretty well!
I really like how your skin tone and the hair is fitting to the overall look I simply adore that hairstyle :3
For a 'summer' look I personally wouldn't use some pants that are bit- well- furry xD But I get your intentions and it's just a tiny detail.
All in all it's a round and pretty look I really like the dyes and your screens are so colourful and beautiful it really deserves Gold :3

Well.. your short story is cute, but for me (and this is only my opinion) your mix is not really on point: why did you choose some shoulders and legs who doesn't fit with the rest of the armor? I mean for a look like this one you had the choice to take what you wanted but you use something you can't succeed to fit together. And there's so much other choice of pieces! Too bad :/
Anyway, imo the armor mix is not good because probably too much precipitate I guess. About the colors, I can't say anything because your screenshots are really too much saturated, why did you do this? :( and why did you use that green for the shoulders? :s I think it's a bad idea to dye a metal piece with the same green of the rest of a cultural armor - especially on a sylvari of course...
However your choice of weapons is really good and it's cool to see Caladbolg :], face, haircut + skin color are cool too!

Ultimately, shoulders are the really big problem of this look imo (legs can be good with another shoulders I think) aaand the retouch on your screenshots = NO! (or be more reasonable ^^)

Silver for me!

I am so glad u said this :) it makes me smile seeing someone who get's the concept as well as myself. sure it's not perfect but i wanted to risk something new^^ ty hylek

As hylek said in comments i risked the legs to be more creative and original. the idea looked fine to me with the fur. i had no issue with them. and yeah too much cultural is what was holding me back as well haha

True! it's not on point! but i took a huge risk with taking those legs. i didnt want to go for the same old boring every day look like most sylvaris have. with all cultural mixed. I didn't change much about the screenshots other than light adaptation and field of view. and a light source behind me to brighten up the pictures.about the shoulders dying them green and u say it's bad idea to dye a metal piece with same green. well i did the same with my revenant(margonite) and it worked fine ^^ anyhow i respect your opinion. thanks for giving the feedback ;)

I'm also up for leggins! It's fresh look on them (not only nornish style, as Hylek said). Mixing sylvari parts with other, more-let's say that- human-looking ones if hard in my opinion. But you did great job here :)
I love how your armor combination make whole unity with weapons, story and screens.
it's great look and deservs for pure gold :3

Actually man the legs aren't so bad with the whole look imo, for me the problem is the combination with that shoulders. I think the whole look can be better with some shoulders more appropriate with the legs, you know what I mean? Maybe something with some tissu for example. Except that and the brightness, you're look is cool :]

haha Yeah i know what u mean billy. but since those dyes are special and dye their own way it was the only one which was bright enough to match the rest.. the other dyes looked dull and way out of color ... i get your thougt about the shoulders. i could indeed use an alternative for them. but i wanted to use them cuz they looked like thorns. and well it had a butterfly! :D thanks again for your opinion and feedback bro
