When I was very young, I had a vision. A spirit of the wilderness spoke to me and offered me his protection. This spirit was Raven. The raven guides me in his cunning and wisdom with truths that others fear. He gives me a far-sighted spirit. In my vision, he spoke of riddles and opened my eyes to truths that few others can see.
I searched for the raven, the spirit of the wilderness that roams the woods and hills.I could overcome anything that stood in my way. And sometime on the winter solstice, I found a branch and carved a rod with Raven.
The winter solstice and winter season is the time of greatest power for those with the raven as a totem. The solstice is the shortest day of the year The sun shines the least on this day, thus it is the darkest. From that day forth, the light shines a little more each day and my staff lights up more intense.This is symbolic of the influence of raven. It teaches how to go into the dark and bring forth the light. With each trip in, I develop the ability to bring more light out.
This is the Norn way. This is my story...

Even before GW2 release, I saw Concept Art Raven Shaman and was immediately enthusiastic. . The bigger was my disappointment, as in the game only NPC should wear this armor... Making a Raven Shaman was my first choice but I always felt that we lacked some of the proper armor pieces/sets to make it work well. And today (finally) two similar pieces of armor are offered in the shop. After six years waiting, I now present my raven spirit shaman
I wanted to incorporate some of the traditional blue/dark green/black coloring that most Raven Shamans use into this set, but I was always being drawn to winter ice dye when I was work this combo. I went with it, and I'm glad I did. It works well at complimenting the trinkets on her armor, without making them pop out too much.

How do you like it?

Absolutely great stuff, love the choice of gloves especially and the leggings are a good match too.
A white raven is certainly a very interesting take, I suppose it works to set her apart from the normal NPCs. Screenshots are on point as well.

Yea! I was waiting when someone will post look like this, since the raven armor was added. The screens are amazing, and I like the choice of white raven theme, suits her really well. There was no better choice of weapons for her, than Raven staff and Nevermore. Stunning job.

As for my color choice, I thought more about Spirit Raven projectiles (cyan transparent).

Thanks for coment... as the title and story of the presentation already say, this is not about the raven, but about the raven spirit. And if you look at the raven´s spirit glider (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Raven%27s_Spirit_Glider), it's not black
