"Balthazar came in fire and wrath, carrying the head of his father and leading his fierce hounds, Temar and Tegon. He swept Orr with a cleansing flame.
It was he who claimed Tyria for humanity; he who said the other races would be easy to defeat. It would not be the only time that the Master of War was wrong."

Even though he might have taken misteps, I will not let Balthazar down. His passion for the art of war isn´t matched in the entirety of the Norn race. We lost our sense for fighting and glory, but this human god promises all the glory and honour I could ever imagine. I follow him on his fiery part, destined for great battles. No matter where his cause will lead me, my sword and bow are his alone and with every fight I win my strength is only growing.

Hey guys!
I was hoping this shoulder piece would finally hit the game since it was datamined and I am super happy it came out in the frame of reference it did now! My ranger was sporting a quite similar look for WvW for ages now, but with this coat I felt I could add the finishing touches to make it my main look! :)
The Vigil Coat is really underrated; really love how it makes medium armour appear more like heavy armour.
The whole look is devoted to our favourite god of war! Having no racial skill and no battle standarte by myself I had to improvise a little, I still hope that you like the screens I took!
I hope you enjoy the look! ^^
(Shoulder skin is "Houndskin Mantle", also some weapon skins are missing, including Balthazar´s Staff and Guild Cavalier´s Axe)

Absolutely stunning. Really unique armor combo and beautiful screens to finish it off. Love all of these action screens. Gold :D

I saw the main image in reddit and I didn't know what game it was. It took me a bit to realize that it was from Guild Wars 2. It's fantastic!! I guess it is the best or from the best screenshots I have seen here! :D
I didn't know those shoulders existed, they look amazing.
Everything is perfect.

Thank you so much!
Took a while to get that screen, I took some hilarious fails trying to get that pose :P
They are pretty new, reward for the meta achievement event of the recent LS, not that hard to get and a really dope skin!

Lovely armor combination, although I think the helmet is very different style from the rest. Color combination on armor is interesting and original. The colors on some of your screens are amazing (the blue ones). And the main image is so cool :D Gold from me too.

AMAZING balthi themed look!!!!
The screens are just mindblowing :O
The ones with the balthi statue, the hot lava screens ... andd then this super epic main-picture ... sooo good!
Your armor executes the war-theme just perfectly and i love how you didnt even had to use a single fiery armor-piece, well done!
Gold Gold Gold!

With the stuff goin on I don't know how to feel about the human gods, but surely this style lives up to the shrines we were used to put them on!
This is all so accurate! Like she is part of some fanatic cult, idk, it's trully embodied in her all this god of war feel!
Congratz, this deserves more than gold, but as usual, they didn't make platinum happen xD

That first screen is just mindblowingly awesome. I particularly love the shoulder piece with the illustrious helmet. Seriously, we need a gold star option!

Awesome screens, awesome gladiatorial feel, very true to what you were going for. I don't think it could get better than this, honestly.
