A river meandered through the dark landscape, flowing swiftly towards an unknown destination. Within the river, small balls of faint light glowed, travelling along with the current.

She stood atop a hilly crest overlooking the river, cutting a forlorn figure. Yet, her eyes shone with determination as she grasped her staff resolutely, waving it to and fro. Upon the top of her staff, was a lamp, attached by a rusted metal chain. The lamp glowed an eerie green, casting a pale yellow upon her face.

This was the river where lost souls gather. And she was their guide, a lamp in the dark.


Hello all, been a while since I did a light armor look.
Hope you like a lamp in the dark.

It looks pretty nice when you notice that it's green, at first I thought it was black and I was like "it looks nice but needs something", but when I realized that it was green I liked it much more :) Did you try maybe using a little lighter green dye?
Also, I like that you used that Wreath with that hair, it fits pretty well.

My favourite screenshots are the ones made in The Grove :D

Ty for the thoughts!
I did try lighter greens but...i really prefer darker looks =(
i had a mighty struggle not using a darker abyss dye for her but settled for enameled and shadow greens...cause they are kind of dark too haha...
Now that u mentioned the grove screens, i do like them a lot more too =]

Love the dark tones u mix in with the green, gives it a really nice effect. I would like to see some screens at different angles tho, most of them are us staring up at the character. Overall great look!!

thanks and good point on the angles of my screens! i didn't realize they were mostly at the same angle. I'll take more notice for my future posts!

Excellent colors and armor mix :)
The only thing I would do differently is the helmet skin, but that's just a tiny detail. Shoulders, chest and legs look like they're from the same set because of the way you dyed it. It looks perfect.

I had the exact same doubts over my helmet! The wreath felt like it didnt fit the theme that well. I went through my entire wardrobe but couldnt find a better one =(
Do u have one in mind?

I found few decent looking options and took screens if you want to check: http://imgur.com/a/fEyoH. But I don't know how it would look with your hairstyle. And in better resolution :/ Some of the skins are only preview from bank, because I don't have them unlocked yet, so I couldn't dye them properly.

What I like the most is probably the new PvP light ascended helmet - Ardent. Unfortunately I don't play PvP league, but I'm seriously considering to start because of these new armors :)
Second option would be Ornate Guild Cowl, but that would definitely colide with you're character's hair.
So maybe human tier 3 Sorcerer's Masque?

Thanks for taking the time to show the options! I think I very much like the last option =))

Late comment, but better later than never i guess! x) Just to say i love this look, i wouldn't change a thing about her, she looks Necrotic but still very much like an Untouched Beauty, she makes me think of Maleficent at some point due to the Glamour! This is a solid Gold no doubt! :)
