The noise and exhaust fumes of the creeping traffic seemed to be amplified many times over, and the penetrating intensity of the sunlight stung my retina. Once I reached the relative shelter of my desk - standing in the quietest corner of an open-plan office - I turned on the fan and pointed it at my face. After regaining my spirits a little, I dedicated a few minutes, like every morning, to the cacti that I put in a row on my desk. I checked to see if there was any rot or any withered or dry parts, I wiped the dust off with a soft brush and made sure the moisture in the potting soil was correct, and then I turned it so that it was evenly exposed to daylight. After that was done, I took my beautiful letter opener and sliced an envelope...
I don't know what happened afterwards. In any case, the open-plan office was deserted. And I... Was I unconscious?
The first thing I could perceive again was a loud hammering. I stood stunned in front of a bookshelf and something was pounding in my head. No... That was at the office door. A postman shouting: "A parcel for Miss Cactus".
I looked around, my letter opener was nowhere in sight. So I pulled a nail scissors out of my Beauty Bag. When I cut the parcel tape, I found my letter opener in giant format and a bundle of photos. Stunned, I stared at the pictures, which slipped out of my hands... Was that me? In the desert? As Cactus?
This is my Story
After one month without GW2 (even without internet) I am back with some weird story and present my cactus :)
My role model for this presentation was the cacti with their great variety of thorns, spines and prickles. So I tried to combine all "prickly" armor parts with each other. The hardest part was to find a matching headpiece (here are some alternatives: https://imgur.com/a/TovNulO
), because heavy armor has hardly any parts without metallic effect. I decided for Turban, because it reminds vaguely of a small cactus :) Plus the hidden reddish sylvari skin (wood) color. With the boot I sway between Bounty Hunter's and Leystone Greaves. Because I already use 2 parts of Bounty Hunter's, here my decision fell on Ley part.
I tried a few when choosing the weapons... In spite of the spikes on "vegetable" Warden weapons, I liked Shifting Sands weapon skins better. The trickling sand fits the desert and I could integrate the weapon into my story without any problems :)
I hope you like my a member of the plant family Cactaceae
