I am Sylvari. Twenty-five years ago my people first appeared in Tyria. The Pale Tree flowered, and the firstborn awakened. The Dream contains my race's memories. We gain awareness here, and then awaken into the world. The Dream fills me with knowledge and is my connection to others. It is my inspiration. It is my guiding light.

I share this Dream with another. In my Dream appeared Razah, a creation of the Mists embedded upon a human template. Razah is powerful; yet for lack of ability to feel connection, is flawed.

I am Razah, and yet I am what he could not be. I invoke the legends of those my counterpart came into contact in Tyria's distant past via his Ritualist prowess: Mallyx the Unyielding, Shiro Tagachi, Ventari, Jalis Ironhammer, and Glint herself. Razah's time chained in the Realm of Torment has given me an affinity for invoking Mallyx and using the magic of the defeated Abaddon in the name of Kormir, the Goddess of Truth; she whom I witnessed become a deity. My connection with the Dream and the Mother has given me the ability to lead the long and arduous campaign against the Elder Dragons and those who worship them - and establish authentic friendships along the way.


In case it helps, there is an exotic torch named Razah's Nightmare. I'd also maybe take some screens with the staff of your choice, since Razah is a ritualist and that's as close as you can get to a spear without going underwater.

I like the armour in general, the earthen tones and the krass purple look quite good together, but I do have to admit that I don´t think it really hits the spot as a cosplay
Apart from the gloves nothing really hits stylewise and the absent boots make the cool kind of cut off at the bottom
Overall silver cause I still like the upper half of the look and the dyes a lot

Thanks Elessar! I really wanted to do this on a Revenant because I think thematically it fits the best. Unfortunately, Razah cosplay is really hard to pull of with heavy. Here's hoping for more light-looking armor for heavies in the near future!

I like the concept, but the armors are quite scattered. Gauntlets look a bit too smooth for the rugged armor pieces, and the pants have too much plating compared to the rest of the armor. I do like the top part though, nice mix of cloth/bone. As for hitting the cosplay, it's a bit off I would say, a look more suited for medium or light armor. It looks cool but doesn't hit the same vibe. Screens could also use a bit of work, pull the camera closer to show off the armor more. Good so far, needs some refining and it'll be A+
