|You have really nice ideas for screens, but...|
You don't use a zoom function ingame, so the images are so small that I can hardly see anything. I'm not talking about weapons, armor details, even your character looks like something gray. As for the armor mix, I don't think the parts really fit together. Chest and trouser parts from a set looks a bit boring. And colors you present as "GuildWarsDyeJob" looks rather random. The grey on boots looks very different than on trousers etc. The weapons are also wildly mixed (Bolt is made of golden metal with purple effects, which you won't find in your armor, and GS is made of dark metal with fire effects)
|I absolutely agree with you on the screenshots - the majority are cropped from random screenshots in my folder just to compliment the main one. I intend on putting more time to gather some more at some point.|
As for the rest of your comment, I don't mean to be rude but I just flat out disagree. Maybe it's literally having different eyes but the silver on the armor and shield looks very uniform on my end, I don't see how it's 'random' at all. Though if you have suggestions for other silver dyes that you feel would flow together better I'd be happy to hear them.
This set went through a lot of turmoil and I'm personally very happy with the pieces I got - the helmet and the protector's pieces have the winged motif's that both play into the Guardian/Paladin theme and the draconic one. The shoulders are heavily armored while remaining smooth and not absurdly spiky or bulky, which is also what I was looking for. I WOULD be open to swapping out the primeval pieces, but I don't think any other armor has the same intricate highlights for the blue dye channel, which was another thing I needed for this set.
Weapons-wise, Bolt is absolutely meant to stand out and draw the eye. The rest of the armor and the shield, while somewhat ornate is somewhat uniform. Bolt on the other hand is a legendary, ancient relic sort of a thing - the idea being it wasn't just forged recently alongside all of this other steel. It's got just as much blue as violet to blend into the Guardian magic scheme, and the draconic motifs play into what I said earlier. The others are a result of the screenshot menagerie like I mentioned, but in the greatsword's case specifically that's another intentional choice to draw the eye - this guy's a paladin of the six, wanted to make sure Balthazar's sword did some good after he died. I actually break out the Hounds elite skill in the open world to compliment it from time to time.
|It takes 10 minutes to make a few screens... So why waste time on cutting any images that nothing looks at? |
I didn't mention the shield with a word, although I'd say it has more steel color (which would also fit for armor more). As for the armor mix, I think that for example: the boots from Illustrios, Carapace, Triumphant or Luminous Set would fit much better and look uniform.
Sorry, but your GS looks totally out of place to me (in combination with other weapons and armour, no matter if in color or style). As for Bolt, I can accept your statement and still I would use a color of it (whether it's a little olive golden or purple) on armour as well. E.g.: instead of blue, which doesn't fit to anything.
And that's why I'm rating your presentation bronze.
