I'm very in love with this armor. I don't like a lot of the basic heavy armors, but this one, this one I like. I picked up this piece of armor as part of Kanshou's journey to the Mistward armor set. I had pondered uploading one of her other culture armor looks but the other one I have for Kanshou (and Kexue) are actually fairly ugly. This is the armor Kanshou done as she explored the tombs of the former king of Ascalon. The weapons she found while there fascinated her as they took on a spectral glow, somewhat similar to her night luminance. She is certain these weapons all have tales to them and she hopes to learn them as she quests for the Mistward armor.
One of the things I like to do with my Sylvari is work in colors that either fit's their skin, their bio-luminance, or skin pattern color. Her bio-luminance is sea foam and so I felt the midnight teal would compliment that color nicely. The cinder for the armor actually worked out well as it gave it kinda this battle-worn armor. Something has survived many many fights. The red is there mostly because red is my favorite color and so I end up incorporating shades of it into a lot of my dye schemes.
