Time flies fast... It's been half a year since I posted my first presentation here. Now I am 50 presentations further and 33 fans richer. At this point - thanks to everyone who looks at my creations and tells me their criticism or praise.

a few FACTS about my presentation(s)

• • • • • • • • • • • • I make 100 - 500 screens (an average of 250 screens) per character
• • • • • • • • • • • • invest approx. 20 min time for picture selection/story
• • • • • • • • • • • • I don't use ReShade etc. and afterwards I almost never edit my pictures.
• • • • • • • • • • • • in my folder at the moment I have about 100 Looks drafts left
• • • • • • • • • • • • some looks from idea to implementation take months, others are completed and posted in about 1 hour
• • • • • • • • • • • • every 3rd idea is rejected because ingame doesn't work (whether color, armor moderate for different races or gender conditioned)
• • • • • • • • • • • • the most skins I get with luck from BLC (use 4-6 Keys per month) and play WvW Reward Track
• • • • • • • • • • • • I like to use unpopular armour/weapons/back items and see it as a challenge to combine them
• • • • • • • • • • • • I'm desperate now and then because weapons or back item color does not match my concept (uncolorable stuff - that's biggest fashionable drawback in GW2)
• • • • • • • • • • • • I have only 10 characters

When I first saw the Berserker's helm, I thought unintentionally of centaurs (maybe, I have blossoming imagination, but this head armor reminds me of the head of the centaur...) And since then there is an idea in my head to create a centaur look. Modniir Beastmaster served as a model for my design (see screens). So I combined different armor parts to create a certain similarity.
Back then, at the very beginning of GW2 times, was also the Modniir weapons (which I still think are beautiful), for which I first spent my karma...
So I grabbed my warrior (unfortunately played much too rarely) and played her to specializations to get Berserker's helmet.
So my Modniir Weaponsmith was born. During photo session I had once again fun and despair at the same time, because I tried to take some pictures, where I stand as an ally side by side with Modniir. I hope that I succeeded convincingly, because I had to trick a little to distract the aggro from centaurs...
Look at my picture story and say if you like it

I absolutely love this. Very original, love the Berserker helm, it's really a shame it is seldom used.
Love the dye job, you really have put in an effort to match the Modniir theme.
My only criticism is the leg piece, not that I don't like it (actually I like it pretty much) but imo it doesn't go too well with the overall outfit.

Anyways, very well done and put together, and lovely screens too. Gold!

Thanks for gold and nice comment!
As for leg dress, I'm not 100% happy with it either. I also tried Council Guard Legguards, unfortunately I wasn't so convinced. So purely out of preference I took the Bladed Tassets...
