"An unsettling silence swept across the waves. The twilight sky shattered and stars streaked down upon the Forgotten armada. The seas boiled and ruptured, and gave birth to a maelstrom from which not even light could escape, and transforming the sky above into a midnight void.

And thus was magic gifted to Jadoth, chosen of Abaddon, the first of the Margonites."

— Scriptures of Abaddon, 1 BE

I feel I should note that I used the jackal greaves for thematic purposes, just like the weapons. As per the GW2 site: "The djinn imbue their magic into runes taken from the bodies of tormented remnants to tame the tormented energies, and in turn the jackals." So the jackals have relation to Abaddon, and the Margonites, just like the tormented weapons. Whether that works visually is subjective and I'll leave up to you.

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome look! I don't think I'd ever use some of those armors together, but you made it look amazing! Good dyes. Good weapon choices. Great job! :)

Loving this!
I use a vaguely similar style for one of my mesmers, only it's more Jester-oriented, rather than this Abaddon-goodness you've got going on.
Really digging what you've done here, excellent use of armors both non-gemstore and gemstore. Not entirely sure about the boots, but I wouldn't know of any alternatives myself either.
Probably also the very first time that I actually like the Tormented Weapon skins.
Think this is excellent and definitely worth of a Gold rating!

Ah thank you so much! I'm still unsure for the boots as well but I find they at least tie into the lore of the outfit. From the site: "The djinn imbue their magic into runes taken from the bodies of tormented remnants to tame the tormented energies, and in turn the jackals." So using tormented weapons, with Abaddon, and the jackal, etc kinda tie together. I do like it visually, but that's subjective obviously. But I'm quite happy with it thematically.
