I crafted The Shining Blade and the old look on my Sylvari mesmer just didn't match. Trying to come up with a suitable outfit and this is one possible choice. I'd love some feedback!

I'm torn between this and something more flashy and wild (which is what I normally have on her, with a ghostly infusion, ley line pieces, shatterer back), but I am having a hard time balancing that with this sword.

Better screenshots to come if I decide to keep this as it is.


Nice look you got there :) To fit better with the Shining Blade, how about a darker shade of purple? Also, I'd personally tend to step away from excessively black dyes, as it seems as though it removed the texture from the skin.

Although, imo, to go along with a sword that is as elaborate as the Shining Blade, a simplistic armor skin wouldn't go along well in most cases. Try something that adds a bit more fabric to the leg and the extremities (preferably something that adds metal or jewelry, since for now, your metallic shoulder piece seems a bit lonely :P). It'd be so much easier with Heavy armors, but oh well.

Would be really cool if it was on a human and some dark skin like elonans.

The last picture you have on there looks different than the others. I definitely think it looks the best! I would try maybe some deeper shades of the colors in your sword; they won't match it exactly, but will allow your sword to *pop*!
