Touched by Jormags corruption, Skall has to live his days as a pariah in the frosty wastes of the shiverpeak. Fighting his condition isn't easy, but he's managed to control it and even learned to manipulate it to fight the dragons influence in more literal ways.

This look got a lot of alterations very quickly, I started off by wanting a simple frost elementalist look with the leystone vest acting as a snow covered chestpiece, innitially I thought of not having any shoulders on it to make the collar part of it stand out more, had the tribal wraps as well, then the bitterfrost story hit, and the frost themed pieces were too in line with the frost look I wanted that I couldn't pass them by. So I loaded up with some bulkier (and always lovely) cultural shoulders and put the glacial gauntlets on, ended up with this.

What a great cultural look! It's outfits like these that make me appreciate male Norn way more!
The inclusion of the backpiece and the gloves keep it a little interesting and I love the colours!
Your presentation keeps to amaze me, especially considering you started posting looks not that long ago
Keep at it with the good work, gold on all sliders ^^

What an amazing ice-look! :O
I love how the stones of the ley-chest look like ice floes the way you dyed it!
Your presentation is very good too, Gold for that :)

Thanks man, honestly it did look better without these gloves and the backpiece, with the tribal bangles instead, but they fitted the theme I wanted so well I really, really had to use'em... XD

Thank you, messing with how the leystone on the leystone sets look was a thing I toyed about since I saw the set, I've seen a lot of people here use it as bark, which is even cooler, but this suit kinda rose around that, leystone has more promise than it's given credit for. XD

Yeah, ended up with a very svanir look, especially with that backpiece and wielding Coldsnap, thanks for the comment!

Super cool ice theme =P Difficult to nail an ice look since the armors are so opaque in this game, but you did it!

Congratz on the nice look! The screenshots are killing me! you certainly have a good eye for those, they come out just right ;)
The dye choices are impecable, and I love how original this look can still claim to be! I just am not quite sure whether i like the headpiece you chose or not xD But you know, it's still a solid Gold look there, and as #Elessar said, for such a recent poster you are delivering so much, it's a pleasure to see! :)

I toyed around a lot with the headpiece, my original idea for this look used the acolyte mask, gave it a bit more of a threatening look, but as it is I went with the priory's hood because it seemed to fit well with the upper bulkiness of the look, not many others fit the bill.

Making more of a water elementalist themed armor has been a thing I've thought about for a while, even for my more played charr elementalist, there just weren't many that looked good, with the release of the new skins it's become a bit more doable.

Another winner from you. You make armors that don't seem to match match with your combinations and dye choices. Very impressive.

I try not to repeat pieces of armour among my sets too much, so I end up taking some weirder choices sometimes, mostly it's just luck of matching the right pieces with the right colours!

How many animals were harmed in the process of making this armor?

Looking great, wonder how much the new Permafrost dye and the others from the pack could affect this look?
