The fierce winds blow through my desert: relentless enough to scour flesh from bone. A scavenger, I follow in their path. I leave no footprint, no sign of my existence.

***
I'm really excited about visiting potential upcoming deserts...

This look was mostly inspired by the ribbons on the Lightward's Battlestaff which is a skin I absolutely love. The desert theme and the daredevil's scarf is of course, nothing new, though I have tried to do it justice. Not entirely sure about the gloves if I'm entirely honest...

This looks friggin AMAZING!
You combined a lot of my personal favourite armour pieces, so I might be a little biased, but I am really in love with this look!
As we come nearer and nearer to an Elona themed expac it is really great to see desert themed looks and this one looks really great
The armour pieces are on spot, the dyes are muted yet interesting through the addition of the blue and your presentation is really good
Especially with the shortbow she reminds me a lot of the Zephyrites
Love this, full gold!

Thank you :) Honestly, I get so nervous when posting a look. I keep thinking this sort of thing will have been done better before...

Thanks horsie. You brought your Syberian hunter look out just as I was gathering screens and but you have the whole winter look with the headscarf so hopefully this is different enough ;P

Yeah, I got lucky. Grinding the gold for the shoulderpieces was not so fun. I'm glad I didn't have to buy the staff as well!

Oops I forgot to vote lol. Now you have it there :)
Ye congrats on the drop. I used to farm first few months after HoT expansion to complete new collections and opened plenty of stashes but I think the only skin I got was one of the shileds, so the drop rate must be very small.

To be honest i have to say i dont like the shoulders here. They feel a little off themewise.
The look is centered around that absolutely amazing staff skin which is precious, sophisticated and magical/metallic. The shoulder skins are more rugged and natural/ shamanic imo.
Also the headpiece stands out a little bit the way you dyed it. This bright beige is missing in the rest of your armor imo. Maybe you could dye the blue part of the pants in this colour to balance it out.
After all this critique lemme say that the look is still great! ^^
I love that you used the priory chest, which is quite rarely seen!
The general colour-concept is also very nice!
Plus you presented the look with some very good screens, so overall its still a Gold from me :)

Thanks for your thoughts. I can see what you mean about the shoulders. Maybe I'll think about changing them to falconers and then changing the gloves to something else. I'll have a play around with adding some cream as well, or changing the headpiece. As it is I feel it blends in fine with the cinders in some lighting but then really stands out in others.

Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments. And I'm really holding out for more skins in the expansion... though I daresay there won't be as many as we'd like!

Your single screen showing your princess unmasked reminded me of my own princess I posted here. Maybe it was the hair? Their face looks kinda similar too. Couldn't help but have a soft spot for your princess =)

I guess we're both going for wilderness looks and i think this hairstyle allows for a wider jaw and cheekbone structure, which I like as a change. I really struggled with her hair as nothing said Elonian to me really in the human choices... all long and straight.

I absolutely love your princess' backstory btw. I get to the description part and my mind goes blank every time!

You've actually managed to change my view about the chestpiece, I've never really liked how it looked before.

One day I'll cave and get the staff, it's just perfect for a Daredevil

thanks =) Its my favorite story of all my characters. Which surprised me because I had thought I was more into dark morbid tales but the simple heart-warming one was the one that touched me in the end =)

The daredevil's scarf has got to be one of my favourite headpieces ever, but then I'm a sucker for any and all desert themes :) Your first screenshot especially is to die for. Love this set.

Hey, thanks for the lovely comment Eivene. I really love the
trailing ribbons on the scarf. Sometimes I think of updating her but I like this set too much! Not quite sure what I'll do when I unlock deadeye one her though. I don't think she's rifle themed...
