I always wanted to do more traditional heavy plate and blade look with underused armor pieces. When I was playing around in the wardrobe, I found it funny how layers of the Dark Templar shoulders and Draconic Gloves match each other so well and reminds me those layers of... onions. The rest of the armor was built upon this initial combo with the White Mantle Elite Guard Mask as my risky final touch. The mask may irk some people and ruin the look to them. However, after playing this character for months, I'm convinced it's a right choice for me.

I hope you enjoy the look and please leave a comment below. Any feedback is much appreciated!

Holy shit you already got Hero Triumphant armour, gz on that, it looks amazing!
While I am personally? not such a big fan of the mask, the overall armour mix is indeed very solid
I love the dye mix, the mixture of blue and red is very interesting
Plus an outstanding presentation makes a gold from me!

The chest and legs look like it comes from the same set.. it looks very good together.
The bloodstone GS is great choice. Screens are very well done.
The only thing I don't like much is the infusion aura. I think its color doesn't go with the rest, especially with the glowing eyes on mask.
But apart from that it's very nice look :) Gold.

While the overall look and upload is quite interesting, i feel like the mask and the boots are a bit off :S
The style of the boots is just kinda different from the rest of the armor, also the colours of them.
Ontop of that i think the infusion doesnt fit the bloodstone theme very well.
Overall its a Silver from me.

Thank you for the gold! Looking back I did grind a lot the past weeks to secure the new triumphant Hero skins. As expected, they look so detailed and dye really great! They're gonna dominating the fashion wars very soon. Regarding the dye, I felt like I'm hitting my limit with the attachment for bright red ribbons, haha... Here's hoping for inspirations from other stylists!

I feel like the mask is so interesting yet the stigma of White Mantle makes it rather underused. It was on an advice of a friend to go with the mask for "an interesting conversation story", I'm happy that you like it, too.

Thank you! If it comes to traditionalist, your Knight of the East would easily beat my Guard in a bout ;)

Ah ha, you have noticed. Except for a rather stark dye issue, the chest and legging pieces join nicely at the waist for a believable one-piece suit - which comes to... the infusion. At first it was totally redundant, but after playing with it on, the infusion helps illuminate the chest piece and define the whole look. I came to love how the softly pulsing fiery glow corrects the disparity in my dye job and lends some vibrancy to my character in action. That's why I leave it on for screenshots as a part of the character.

You have a fair judgement. It may look contriving by including both the mask and the boots with the mask of different material and the boots of different ornate motifs. My only excuse is the other choices don't look as good or as striking. Here I went with my gut feelings but this look indeed has plenty of room for improvement.

Ye it's the most important that you like it :) I like this infusion too and already completed the collection, but so far it's only sitting in my bank. I have to come up with some look for it too :) And for the one from SAB.

i think this is a great look with the mask! the only thing i'm not a fan of is the infusion, but that's a really minor thing. everything fits really well together. gold!

I think the mask works really well here with the infusion: I find it quite scary and dehumanising. A terrifying faceless guard! I like the screenshots in CM- particularly the one of her looming behind Caudecus. Gold :)
