The legends tell of an ancient evil hidden in the deepest, darkest reaches below the Auric Basin. A mysterious being, a construct not unlike the ones that roam and defend the golden palace above, the enigma of the Auric Basin is said to be a failed experiment, a rare mistake from the Exalted. The enigma is said to channel the same powers that the Exalted use to protect Glint's legacy, but instead use it to opposite effect, to harm and destroy. Locked deep underneath the golden halls of Tarir by the Exalted, hoping to forget their failure, the enigma would eventually break free and come back to haunt them. The reaper of Tarir stalks the glimmering hallways with a vengeance, hunting the Exalted that once held it prisoner.

Hey guys!
I finally finished this look after starting it shortly after HoT launched. I took a break, and came back to finish the Mes elite spec so I could get the shoulders. I wanted to create a look that combined the dark side of the reaper/necro with the light of the Exalted. This is what I came up with. Dyes were fairly difficult, as each piece of armor has totally different textures and shines. Enjoy!



I really like this outfit!
The colours are very harmonious and create a nice dark feeling, without being a blob of black ;)
With the leopard fur on the front and the oriental chest-piece, it gives me some persian vibes actually. I like the story very much, but i wouldve prefered this to be some sort of oriental voodoo magician or sth.
Anyway, i like the look and the presentation, so its a gold from me!
You could improve the screens a bit, by using the camera options and zooming a bit more in, though :P

Yeah I really liked the Auric weapons and wanted to theme a character around the AB/Exalted lore, and noticed the Chrono shoulders were a really good fit too. Will try to work on shots more, thanks for feedback!
