"In my short life, you’ve taught me the most important lesson. Friends will go through anything for each other."
- Magister Sieran

I still can´t believe she is just....gone. When the world seemingly just exploded around us she had the clarity to stay behind. Was it clarity though? I miss her so much and her last words keep echoing through my head:
"I can´t let you hurt them. I won´t!"
Why did I let this happen? Why did I let Sieran get hurt? To this day I still feel the guilt clenching around my heart with an iron fist whenever Sieran´s voice rises in the back of my head. I often wonder if there was anything we could have done. I didn´t want her to die there, alone in the face of a dragon. But her sacrifice awoke something in me. After weeks and weeks of mourning a desire arose in me, strong as ever, to not let her death be in vain. I would study and train and become everything Sieran will never be able to become.
The arcane masteries will give me the strength to put an end to this undead plight that took her from me. The Priory worships knowledge and so knowledge I accquired. Through countless hours in the depths of the archieves and even more hours on the fields of battle I trained myself to become a master of my craft.
Sieran, you didn´t die in vain and even if I can´t wander the Mists to guide you back to us, I will lead the Priory in the glorious future it deserves.

Hey guys,
Elessar back with a really personal look! When I first played through the GW personal story, I chose the Durmand Priory and even if Tybalt will always have a special place in my heart, the Priory and Sieran are simply what I decided to follow back then, so I still feel some kind of connection with this order the most.
Sieran´s death certainly hit me hard back then and so I decided to devote my elementalist´s look to her.
With the addition of the Order backpieces I had the perfect starting point and I tried to build my armour and mainly my dye scheme around this piece.
What can I say, I simply love this mask :D
I feel like the Priory armour is really underrated, so I included it to give my ele more of a scholarly feel
The backside has so much intricate details from all pieces combined and since I am looking at the back most of the times anyways I found that quite beneficial!
I know it´s kinda hard to come up with really original human female light armour, but I really tried to make something special with the dyes and the whole presentation, so I hope you like her! ^^

Discuss this look on Reddit at GuildWarsDyeJob!

I don´t think there is anything unoriginal about this look
One of the most beautiful human females I ever saw actually
The inclusion of the Priory top makes her stick out and I also don´t remember seeing this backpiece utilised
Plus: damn mate, your story nearly brought tears to my eyes, A++ for writing

There she finally is!
I know the struggle on light female human armour and I know how hard it is to create something unique and original but again you just hit the nail and create something so beautiful that I am honestly very jealous because I still didn't figure out how to do that!
This armour combo is just amazing from head to toe! I agree with you that the Prior- armour doesn't get as much recognition as it should be and you made a great choice using this chestpiece in combination with all the other pieces. The mask just adds up to her beauty and I just can't get enough of this look!
Dyes are amazing and very fitting to the backpiece and the overall theme and story that you created for her.
Your screens are just as beautiful as always and I just love every single one of them!
All the gold for you!!

Stunning ele!
While the general armor-pieces are somewhat common, you spiced it up with the priory vest a LOT!
Its a perfect fit for the theme and i think i havent seen it in a comb like this so far :D
Colours are absolutely precious and tie in the backpiece perfectly! The mix of green, pastel and gold is simply beautiful!
And the presentation ... well what should i say, if anyone delivers with presentation then its you! Perfect as always!
Great story aand great screens!
I especially love the ones around the big bookshelves! Gives me some Avatar - Wan Shitong's library (or however hes written) vibes ^^
... Bronze :P
JK, Gold ofc!

Really cool style! Don't really see much use out of the Priory light armor. Great way to fit the theme! Gold :D

Very interesting armor mix. I recently tried to use priory chest (light and heavy), because it looks very nice with the right colors, but so far I haven't found any leg piece to it that I would like. Your choice looks great, gj :)

I also like the priory theme. The story made me sad. Screens are beautiful as always.

I guess this is one of the most unique looks I have ever seen, that mix of armor and dyes.The screenshots are perfect, everything matchs perfectly, you did well using the turquoise theme.
The presentation couldn't be better :)

Gold for sure, good job!!

Freaking awesome.
The chest piece makes this look unique and ohh it looks soo good in here! I didn't even really like it before but I absolutely love it in here!
The dyes are fantastic and fit the backpiece perfectly. I just gotta love that turquoise color.
Def gold! :)

This look is amazing! The colors are so well done and the matching of the armorpieces + originality is so great!
