Something has changed within me. Something is not the same. I'm through with playing by the rules of politics, under someone else's power.

"The Centaur attacks grow more aggressive by the day! When will we drive those beasts out of our lands? What are our leaders waiting for?"
It's the same old report and the same old answer: the Queen's safety takes priority now that the White Mantle is out of the shadow. Yes, yes, yes! But...

"While our heroes are fighting dragons in distant lands, our homes are under attack. When will the crown's protection return?"
That makes me angry. At least Caudecus has done something right, he spoke of our unrest, of the incompetence and cowardness of the throne.

"When the charr attacked, the king fled. Now the queen hides from the centaurs. Krytans need to stand and fight!"
My trust to the throne has been shaken since when the Shining Blade employs a criminal sylvari. Just what are they thinking? I'm through with accepting obfuscating explanation. Why don't they just acknowledge the truth?

"Get mesmers out of our government! How can we trust mind-shapers to argue fairly for the people?"
Perhaps all of this is but an illusion of peace. Divinity's Reach is but playing politics. Nothing could be trusted.
It's time to act. Even if peace comes at much too high a cost, I have to bring down the impostors. Bring back the power to our people of the true nation of Tyria.
The Queen must die...

"Lady Rita Vrataski, you're in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Jenna." - Countess Anise insists with a clear authority in her voice, "Kneel before the Queen!"


This is a story of a Seraph officer intoxicated by the magic power of the Bloodstone and befuddled by the surrounding propaganda has decided to infiltrate the throne room and carry out the act of insurgence. Intertwined throughout her thought process are quotes from the Posted Message achievement.

The outfit draws inspiration from a noble knight, mainly due to the appearance of the Triumphant legging which is in itself an instant popular hit. It has become a pet project of mine to build a look incorporating Twilight. Here I aim for a darker mood with green enameled armor and bright red decorative ribbons. To match with a cool hairdo, I used a double asymmetric pieces: Barbaric Shoulders and Phalanx Gloves. As for the boots, I chose Triumphant boots to continue the intricate design of the Carapace chest pieces. To me, the best feature of this look would be the design on her back and the matching ribbons on her shoulders, skirt and the bloodstone axe. Therefore I decided against the use of a backpiece as there are quite a lot on a plate already.

Hope you enjoy this look and let me know what you think too!

Edit: Added the last screenshot in response to Elessa.


Very nice armor-comb and colours!
Especially the chest-leg-boot combo is great!

I really like the slightly Asian vibe the dye mix immediately gives off
Since my human warrior sports nearly the same armour mix, I canĀ“t disapprove here!
Plus your presentation is flawless, makes an overall gold for you! ^^

I really love your dye choices. I like how the red jewels compliment the ones on the GS. The shoulders with the legs is a great choice as well. Gold.

Those pants are really cool and I love the use of Enameled Longevity dye here. Also nice screenshots, gold.

Thank you for the gold! I was concerned a bit about the lack of originality. This is one of the cases when the armor combo is so good and has so many good dye variation that makes me obsessed. I can't wait for the elite version!

Oooh, you're spot-on! This character of mine has been using a strong Asian identity - brown eyes, brown hair, so when I play around with the dyes, I must have been influenced. My friend also had commented how 'chinese' she looks so I made another dye scheme (white and blue as in last picture) as a joke to him - he's also taiwanese origin. The blue pattern on smooth white plate takes reference from the Ming 'china' vases. Lol.

Last but not least, thank you for the gold!

Your compliment is much appreciated! I agree with you, those tiny details are what make GW2 fashion great. I honestly didn't intend to match everything until after playing so much with the dyes and it comes out surprisingly... matchy!
