Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some sword skin that would look good with Astralaria in other hand. So far I'm using Bolt, but it seem like there are too many effects, so I'm looking for some alternative. The axe is mostly gold (white gold, not yellow). When I went through the sword gallery I didn't find anything that I could actually say "this goes together well".

So what do you guys use? Or what do you think I should use?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit:
I added screens of all the suggested sword skins to compare. So far I like the Cavelier and Zodiac. Thx guys for help.
Ascended skins would also work (with the color), but I personally don't like them, because I think they look like christmas toys.

So I had a look through the gallery and here's what stood out for me:

Timekeeper Sword as it matches the clockwork detail and has a blue glow. The gold however may be too intense. However at 109 gold on TP that may be a bit expensive esp if it's not quite right. Also so similar to bolt why would you bother...

I also like the cavalier sword skin which unfortunately again is TP. However the design is simple and elegant so it wouldn't detract from Astralaria.

Vigil's Honor Sword though the blade may be too chunky for your tastes. The blue black imo does go with the night sky effect.

Shimmering Sword crafted from your guild is smaller whilst still matching the colour scheme: the handle is dark blue. As usual the gold may be too dark. It's probably the choice I would go for myself.

Hi!

I am building Astrlaria too and will have the same problem sooner or later, so I went through the gallery too.

Aureate Rinblade - might be a bit to bulky and the handle too dark.
Bonetti's Rapier - nice from the color, but the style, don't know, it's a rapier with an axe like Astralarie... hm.
Maybe the clacite or cobalt ascended sword, but that's just crazy expensive for one skin. Well it's still an ascended sword, if you can make use of the stats it comes with.
Carnival Sword - the blue is nice, but I don't know how it looks next to Astralaria, maybe a bit funny, or you even like exactly that.
Berserker's Ebb looks really nice I think. But it's expensive.
Etched Blade could be an optopn.
So is the Gallant Sword Skin, wich might be a bit to silverish and it's a skin only.
Glyphic Edge has at least the blue glow, the sword itself is dark. Maybe use it as contrast.
I love Infinite Light. It's expensive though and maybe again too much effects at once.
Krytan Sword - same as galant sword.
Something simple as a Mithril Sword might work, not trying to match with Astralaria. Understatement.
Or the seraph sword if it's not to silverish.
Like already suggested the Shimmering Sword could work. Same as the Timekeeper sword and Zodiac that were also mentioned already. Just saying too, that they could work.
Or maybe the Warden Sword. The blue crystal would go well, the branchy handle rather not...

That would be my tries, if I had to make a descission.

Hi, thanks for help. I like timekeeper skins a lot, but unfortunetly I have to play on low details and they look really bad on low details :/

Hi, thank you. Zodiac sword would look good with Astralaria with the right armor style and colors I think.

Hi, good luck with your Astralaria crafting :) It's really nicely done weapon imo.

I checked all the suggested skins and so far my most favourite is Cavalier. It will depend on the armor ofc. My first revenant is a vegetable in blue (cyanide) + gold armor for now, so I should probably choose golden sword instead of silver. It's quite hard to have all the used colors to matched. If I don't find anything suitable, I can always keep the Bolt at least. Bonettis Rapier would be great color match, but since the axe is so large, rapier looks kind of like a toothpick :D

Hi! I like the previews you did! That's perfect for compairing. :) A lot of my suggestions don't really work. ^^ The Cavalier sword is great though!

My favourites would be:
1. Cobalt Antique Blade
2. Cavalier Sword
3. Timekeeper
4. Infinte Light
5. Glyphic Edge

My favourites is the Shimmering Sword :) although the vigil's honor sword seems to have fitting colors too ^^

Shimmering sword looks neat, but unfortunately the golden part has orange shade and on my low graphics it shows a lot. Still I'm considering to pick that one :) Thanks for your opinion.

I'd go with either Cobalt Antique for the matching blue, or Timekeeper to go with the whole celestial look. Although Infinite Light would be an interesting combo as well - light and dark?

Thx for your opinion :) I didn't select any skin in the end, probably because I don't play revenant anymore. So I thought I'd wait for some new skins added to the game.

Timekeeper sword does look good with Astralaria. If I was actively using revenant, I'd go for that. But now it seems like a waste of gold for me.
