(Lore, in case you didn't see my previous iteration.)

"I had a friend in the Dream. Her name was Lyri."

"We were inseparable from the moment we budded in our pods. We both had a keen interest in purifying magic; I preferred the honorable ways of a Guardian, while she opted for the primal strength of a Druid. "

"We walked the same path in the Dream. We both saw the white stag that I would later rescue from the Nightmare Court. We both saw Caithe, who told us that our shared calling in Tyria would be to defeat the Elder Dragons Zhaitan and Kralkatorrik."

"And we both saw the Shadow of the Dragon. We’d thought the beast was a creation of the aforementioned Court, especially since it was accompanied by nightmare hounds, but as I learned later, it was in fact a manifestation of Mordremoth, the Elder Dragon of the Jungle."

"The dragon fell... as did Lyri."

"As I stood vigil by her broken body and cropped my leafy bangs short in mourning, I vowed to eliminate every trace of the Elder Dragons from Tyria. And so I awakened and began my arduous task."

"It’s been four years. Two thirds of my Wyld Hunt, to slay Zhaitan, Mordremoth, and Kralkatorrik, is complete. I would prioritize this last dragon to complete my Wyld Hunt, but Primordus has now awakened - and moved. And Jormag stirs in the north."

"Which shall it be?"

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

I redid my Dragonhunter's dyes and boots, got that shiny shiny glider, and took some nice pics using it. I reused some of the old shots that didn't have the boots visible, or where the boots - or old dyes for that matter - weren't clearly identifiable.

Notes (ICYMI):
- Inspiration for the look is Wings of Dwayna. I'd have made the backpiece but it doesn't match the longbow!
- Pics taken with MasterEffect, except for the cover pic. The shader is called "Oh Shiny."
- Shoutout to former guildie Vaelei (char name: Lyelornys) for posing as Lyri in the sepia "memory" shot! The name similarities are only a coincidence, I swear.
- Eirwen's armor in the memory shot is T1 cultural (Arborist).

Pics taken on my brother's PC. Locations include Gilded Hollow, Tarir, Iron Marches, Malchor's Leap, Cursed Shore, Frostgorge Sound, Dragon's Stand, Ember Bay, and Bitterfrost Frontier. The memory pic was taken on this craptop in the Grove a while back.

I absolutely love your coordination of your armour with the Wings of Dwayna. For that, your back story and the memory shot (serious kudos for that!!!) I'm giving you gold. I like this glider as a glider but I'm personally not sure about it as a back-piece, but that's just because I think your armour looks so good it should be the main focus ;).

Love the top part of your look!
The addition of the soft pink makes it quite interesting to look at!
However, i kinda miss that colour-variety in the bottom part. Its too dominated by blue imo.
I would recommend you to change the boots to have more dyeslots on the lower part of your look ... but i actually like those boots and they are quite rare nowadays xD
So i will just overlook that little flaw and rather focus on your gorgeous presentation so i can give you a Gold ;D

Yeah, there really aren't enough dye channels. It sucks that the shoulders, top, and gloves all have 4, but the pants have 3 and the boots have 2. (The old boots had that issue as well - they had 3, but one was for the horns.) But hey, as you said, the boots still fit with the theme! Thank you for your commentary and the gold!

I love it. I love the lure, the story and the screen shots!
one thing I did cotton onto though is that Kralkatorrik is not yet slain ;) whether she has in her story tho is another matter :D well done!

She says two-thirds of her hunt is complete - Zhaitan and Mordremoth. I understand how one might misread that though! :P

I think she looks really lovely.
That armor combo looks so beautiful with the dyes you chose! Very elegant.
I just looked up your previous look of hers, it seems I missed it :o Anyway, I think the boots look WAY better now! They fit so much better than the other ones :)
The only thing I am slightly bothered by is that the legs and boots look darker than the upper part of the outfit (which looks perfect as it is).
The legs look kinda grey while the rest is much brighter. But with those limited dye channels I can see that it is not that easy to always match the dyes perfectly :/ I often really hate how some armor parts dye! Could drive me crazy :D
Apart from that I really love this look, the weapons also fit very nicely to the armor.
So you get a gold :P

Hey, at least it's not as bad as the armor set I was going to give her a while ago that had cultural armor in it... that glitched so awfully but it would've looked so darn good :(

Thank you!

You did an amazing job incorporating the wings into your dye scheme and not making it look like a clown. Bravo! Great weapon choices as well. Gold from me.
