Hey! o/

I wanted to create a new look for my chrono and already settled for that chest-leg combo a while ago. But there wasn't any nice shoulder skin, they all kinda looked too girly.
My goal was to create a strong and determined looking woman - a shieldmaiden directly came to mind when I tried out the houndskin mantle. So this shoulder skin motivated me to create a norn/nord/viking-inspired look.

In my opinion, the houndskin mantle fits perfectly to the lawless boots which have both the spikes and the fur on it. The mask shall look like war paint and it conveniently has these spikes on it, too.
I love the vigil armor and have also used two pieces of it on my previous look, this time it is the gloves and the pants. Again, all the other pants looked too girly or simply didn't fit the theme, so I had to go with these (and I also really like them :P).
That big metal thing on her chest bugs me a little but I still think this chest piece was the best choice as it isn't revealing at all and looks like actual armor.

I chose simple dyes and weapons to fit the viking theme as best as possible.
Taking those screens was really fun, especially the last ones :P

Note: I use GemFX, but the screens are not edited apart from that.

I hope you like her!

I love the screenshots, the backpiece in this https://i.imgur.com/AFXQR0C.jpg screenshot looks awesome!
The dyes are perfect and I really like the armor combination. They should add more armor items like those.
My favourite thing are the back item and the weapons, how they fit with the rest of the armor.
I usually don't like that hairstyle but for this kind of look it is pretty good, most of them are very girly.

Good job!

Thank you very much! :)
Regarding the hairstyle: I considered to change it because the norn hairstyles would be perfect with this, especially the one with the side cut, but I still liked how this looked the most :P
Thanks for the feedback!

Haha thank you Hylek! You always know when to use a pun :D

Ohh yeah there really are a LOT of looks with these shoulders and I felt the same as you :D But I simply had to use them because they look so cool and were the type of armor that I was missing before they came out x.x

Anyway, thanks a ton for your nice comment! :)

It's a very unique chronomancer look. Even though I prefer her back without the backpack, it's not a big deal. My only nit-picking is the fur puff on the boots - they are too distracting away from the whole look. Still a solid Gold to me!

This is an amazing upload, such a marvellous look!
I love everything about her from head to toe, the mask is just one of my favourite ones and overall she doesn´t look like light armour at all
The dyes are subtle and spot on, the presentation is breathtaking...really one of my favourite uploads on the site for a while!
Gold on all sliders ^^

Awesome look O_o I'd say she looks like bandit from Skyrim. I think the armor mix is very original, certainly don't remember seeing anything like this before. Great job!

The more I look at this outfit, the more I like it. Your character looks tough, she looks fierce, and she looks perfectly at-home with the norn, while also having a distinct warmth to her.

I'm just very happy with this look. It's not something I would have ever come up with, and it's exactly what it needs to be.

I love how you turned a light armor character into looking into something like that of a warrior or guardian, very impressive

wow....just wow... everything fits so well and the screens look so brilliant, making it look like a different game then gw2. ö__ö
Plus; it really took me a while to notice, that this is a light armor look. I thought it was a heavy armor look, til i read through the comments :D

Great fur-armor styled look! I've been playing skyrim lately since Guild Wars 2 is bugged and REFUSES to update, and this armor just screams nordic. Love it =)

thank you very much! :)

I had that problem for a while, too. the game could not update because the client would crash every few seconds. if that might also be the problem for you, check the error report. if it says "LavasoftTcpService64.dll" somewhere, this should be the cause of the constant crashes. this is malware and has to be removed. there should be videos and posts if you google it on how to remove the files.
I hope this helped :>

Woow another amazing look from you ^-^. It doesn't even look like it's light armor. It's so unique! I love the shoulders with the boots, I love her face with this hairstyle and this mask, I love the natural colors of the armor and the armor itself, I love the weapons and the backpiece you chose, and I love the screens :P
Everything's perfect imo : max sliders :D

I saw this character in DR few weeks ago and she's really cool and badass, I particularly like the proportion (shoulders/chest/legs) and I like short hair for female character. Colors fit to the style itself, the tattoo on her face is well chosen and fit perfectly to the whole look, same thing for the backpack and weapons. Screenshots are nice too (even if I don't like GemFX). A sexy, badass and charismatic female woman with a classic look, it's a success in my opinion. Gold !

This is one of the most creative looks I've ever seen for light armor. Everything about it is so cool, and at first glance I thought you used heavy armor it looks so authentically shieldmaiden-like. Awesome job! :)
