This one was kind of a quick look to be brutally honest. I've had this character for almost a year now, just hanging in the background because I couldn't decide if I'll make him into a Herald or Renegade and what kind of armor mix I'd make for him. So, yesterday I just went ahead and decided I'll go for the Renegade and make proper build for him.
I tried to go for kind of an ember-ish look (ended up with more of a burning log tbh), I wanted to make a full cultural armor, but couldn't come up with pauldrons and a headpiece from that selection that I would be happy with, though I think the mix between leafy stuff and metal in this case came out alright.

Back item: Mursaat Wings

Again I love the screenshots especially the ones taken in Ember Bay, they have such a nice atmosphere that really fits this look.
I quite like the armor mix too, the leaves in the chest piece and backpack go nicely together and I do like the shape the pauldrons give your character!

Amazing work. Wonderful screenshots! I'm curious though, do you use ReShade or other post-processing? Those sun-backed screenshots look way too advanced in their lighting for GW2's engine. Looks great though :D

Aw ty so much :D I do actually use ReShade! But not in all of the pics, for example not in any of the night pics, because it turn the pics way too dark. The trick is to take the pictures in Ember Bay, the map adds a real nice orange-ish glow on all the metal parts of the armor and has a lot better contrast than other maps :D
