Night accompanies this lone wanderer like her shadow. Often seen around graves, people are not quite sure what exactly this creature is, but being prone to everything related to death, her reputation is a tainted one.
Her lantern emits a soft glow in the night and her coat seems to be adorned with gravelights, so the people of Tyria simply called her the Gravekeeper. Sometimes people whisper that she might be a Dschinn, judging by her pale eyes and her dark skin.
But to be honest, no one really knows what this wanderer really is. She never spoke a word to anyone and if approached, she won´t do more than nodd or shake her head, but never answer any personal questions. When there is a recent death in a family she will be there, watching, and her candles and her staff will glow softly as if to guide the spirits.

Hey guys,
I´d like to present you my take on the new Forfire skins! Such amazing skins, I just immediately knew I had to do a look with it!
They were also the perfect place to use Burden and The Crossing, two other skins I was dying to use cause I really like the style a lot.
She is a bit of an unusual druid, but I kind of like the idea of a life leaching/dark healer; in combination with the headdress it really makes a nice mythical overall feel and I enjoy the animations of the new pieces so much!
I tried to stay close to the backpiece with the dyes and included some hints of bones to get the death theme across.
Thanks also for for showing me the great screen potential of the BotP!
I hope you like the look, enjoy ^^

Skins used I couldn´t specify: Burden & Great Capra (longbow)

Holy shit....... those dark cave screenshots...
they are SO GOOD :O
I love the armor mix, it's really something fresh and unexpected.
the foefire pieces just belong to the burden backpiece(lucky u :P) the only weapon i am not fond of here is the lantern. but that is just my personal taste. perfect screens, perfect dyes, perfect mix. Gold from me

Well, as always you desever a gold. If anyone says it isn't unique he/she is lying!! XD
Very nice dyes job and cool screenshots. I don't have anything bad to say. The gloves-shoulders-backitem is 100% perfect.
May I ask where you took those dark screenshots?

Good job!

ooOOOOo... There's something in the ....graveyard!?

Can't believe I hadn't thought of the combination of the candles with the backpack and shoulders. Works really well and the way you've picked out the dyes to match the burden is lovely. The wrappings on the shoulders and headscarf definitely work to give that mummy effect. On a side-note I am very envious of that glider...

Gold as per usual :)

10/10 as always. I love this so much. And where even is that dark room? I know it's somewhere in a raid...

Thanks you all!
The dark room is behind Deimos' platform, also didn't know it gave such cool screens, but the upload I credited mentioned it in the comments :)
Only time the BLC was ever kind to me, I still cry a little bit because of the Elemental Sword T T

This is first time I see this backpack actually fitting and working! Very atmospheric look.

When I first saw your main pic, I fell in love with it instantly. It looks so awesome! I'm generally fond of gloomy style and this is just perfect.
The version in character select or during day looks nice, but in dark it gets so much better.

Ah sorry, now I realize that when I asked you that question I opened the link but forgot to read the description XD

I love this outfit :> You used the staff well :)

The mummy/gravekeeper theme is sooo cool!!!
Everything fits around it, the headpiece, the backpiece, the staff, the foefire skins, just everything :D
Combined with this old, moldy colour-scheme it creates such a great, thematic style!
And your screens are super fitting as expected! Im amazed how detailed the writing on that one gravestone is :o
Great upload, max sliders!

First of all, these are wallpaper quality screenshots. Holy moly! I like the armor mix, it somehow reminds me of the new remade Mummy. The only take away is the grey and yellow color pallette. It feels a tad too modern editorials for a mythic theme.That said, she looks slaying in game. A solid Gold from me.

Simply amazing :o

I love your ability to stick so much to a theme and make it happen that you manage to make me not think at all about what class/armor type am I seeing. It's the theme itself and that's all! Honestly that's magical about your looks, I can never find anything I dislike! Gold!

She looks really dark and mysterious at the same time, perfect for a bodyguard in some dark instance, great look, gold.

Just here to leave you a gold and tell you how awesome this looks is :)
I love the gravekeeper theme and you just capured it perfectly in everything, armor, weapons, dyes and screens. The one thing I like most, is the use of the backpack, it just fits so well with the theme and the shoulders.
2017-06-22 9:42

Pretty much everything I want to say has already been said, but the main things are 1) the backpack and Foefire stuff looks great together, and 2) I can totally see her wandering around desert tombs and resetting all the traps after grave robbers stumble into them.

this looks really cool.
although I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of the new shoulders (two freaking candles that are burning on your shoulders just beside your face?! really anet? :'D), but they look really nice with that backpiece!
and the screens are very thematic and look awesome.
gold from me^^

Once again! Another gold look!
