"Here, some Challenge Motes are small interactive will-o'-wisps which activate buffs on you, allowing yours to acquire achievements during Fractals of the Mists. This is our new program," she announced, embracing me.
"With all the spirits, Dessa," I said, "I can make myself invisible or create a few illusions, but that's too much to ask! So many of this Fractal Research Page we've never managed before!"
She wrinkled her forehead as if it was melting.
I stared at her incredibly, actually I just wanted to get some Fractal Encryption Keys... "And you don't do it yourself because...?"
"I'm a scientist, not a fighter. I can teleport you between fractals, but I need experienced combatants to ensure stabilization."
"Oh Dessa, and I do that in the name of science? So for nothing?"
"Go to my Krewe," she threw me some Pristine Fractal Relics, "and get you Fractal Swords and Fractal Staff."
"I'm a little busy here, need something?" as I approached, I heard bored monotonous Krewe member voice, "I've worked here for so long I can't remember anything else. Same every day, researching the Mists. Same table, same trees, same delusional golems that think they need breaks to use the litter box.."
"I'm looking for BUY-2046 PFR, somehow you've rebuilt everything here..."
"New space? Remodel? In fact, the only thing different around here is you coming around asking nonsense questions. So thanks for breaking up the monotony"
When I walked through Mistlock Observatory looking for BUY-2046 PFR, I saw another Krewe member - Kelvei, the Legendary Observer, who had such huge wings and exceptionally almost kindly told me,- "On my back is the state-of-the-art reverse front aesthetic covering and "ooh-ahh" device. It takes time and effort to build one, but if you're interested, I'll guide you through the process."
This is much better than Dessas Fractal weapons I thought-"Clearly my interest is very big!"
Suddenly I stood there with contract in hand and scribbled my signature on it. Only later would I realize what I was getting myself into... With "time and effort" I have somehow not really listened...
This is my Story
That's a bit older look, but I always had too little time to post it (or something else came in between)...
The WvW stuff is a bit hard to mix, because no matter what color you use, you can't cover this bluish glow. So I chose Fractal theme to complement that. I tried to combine armor pieces that have similar curved patterns to Ad Infinitum. This can be found on shoulders, gloves, trousers and boots. As headgear I deliberately chose something simple, because the rest is already very rich in different effects. And since I'm not a fan of glitter thunderstorms, I only set some stronger accents and used calm silver and frost colors to soften the effects.
I hope I'm not boring you with my new old Fractal styling.
