Hey everyone!
After seeing all the HoT styles, i was kinda motivated to upload my new styles aswell :D

So here is my first one:
I saw the "Glints Bastion" shield-skin in some data-mining posts long ago, and already knew i wanted to create a Glint themed Revenant.
Now that I got it, I had quite some trouble with the dyes and the overall armor-comb. But after lots of recolouring and an excessive waste of transmutation charges I finally like it xD

The colour-scheme is meant to fit the crystalline style of the shield.

The hairstyle and the gloves are meant to match, since both have these branches, pointing backwards. They also look a little like crystals (with lots of fantasy xD)
The spiky head-piece is also meant to fit in with the crystal thematic.
Needless to say that the shoulder-piece was a must-have for this look ;D
At first i was unsure about a back-piece, but since the Shattered Dragon Wings really look like those of Glints Aspects from GW1, i HAD to use them ^^

The screenshots were taken in Glints Lair of course!

Hope you like it! Cheerz :D


*edit: I found this location in Gendarran Fields which had amazing lighting, so i decided to take some screens :)
The main-picture and the second one are now from the new location, i hope you like it!

You look gorgeous! I can't even imagine how hard it must've been to get those dyes working. And as always, your screens are perfect!
Do I even need to say that it's a gold from me :P

Omg she is PERFECT!!
I see you managed to find the perfect dyes! The shield, the fractal sword, Bifrost and the wings work perfectly together in this theme! The armor mix works perfectly too... I love these boots with this chest. And what can I say about the screens ? Just AMAZING! :D
Love the look! Probably one of my favourites from you ! GOLD ;D

Finally a look in which the holographic wings don't look out of place. Awesome colors and use of the new armor pieces. Kudos.

I understand! At first i had t3 legs and mistward boots, but it was impossible to get the dyes working on that (especially because the boots only have 1 colour-area).
I like the cape of the mistward legs so i went for that one.

Thx Migg :D
I just finished the Bifrost by crafting The Legend ... so expensive q.q
I dont use it when i run around, i just wanted to show it off because it fits the rainbow crystals in Glints Lair and you can do cool poses with it ;P

It's VERY HARD to recive gold from me ... but this one truly deserves it!
Everything matches perfectly, the dyes, the armor sets, you even done it right mixing sylvari armor with normal armor. This is an amazing work, good job!
The only bad thing are the wings. I really don't like them ... but that's rather a personal Issue.

TY Xyonon, you honor me :D
As i said, i only use the wings because they fit Glints Aspects from GW1 ... since the style and the colours of the wings dont match too good, i wouldnt use them else :P
The new legi backpiece would match colour-wise and crystal-theme-wise ... but it was a bit too much effort to put in xD

This is very well done!!! If there is ever a time to use any sort of wings, this is it. Excellent use of the cultural top.

Thanks Maeve! :)
Special thanks for appreciating the use of the t2 top. I really liked how the glow of it is continued by the tiny glowy part of the leg-piece!

Oh my gosh!! I love hou you played around background. I feel it isn't just "oh it's nice place to tak screens", it's more like integral part of your look ;)
Crystals from background works perfectly with mask, gloves and shoulders, they also look like crystals.
And ayes are masterwork! And shield, ohh I'm so jealous :D
For me wings are no needed, but still looks awesome ^^
Max sliders everywhere!! :)

Ty so much ^,^
The instance really came in handy for that theme. The area was so fitting for my look ... i usually wanted to visit other loactions too, like the crystal cave JP, but i already had 1000 screens from this cave so i decided to stick with it ^^

This looks so amazing! I was tempted to try out something similar on my sylvari warrior, but I honestly don't think I can top this.

That's a nice dyejob, good work. Though I don't think Sylvari really fits the Revenant class lore-wise and the Bifrost looks off to me, it does not fit the Glint theme.

Thx for the critic!
I agree the Bifrost doesnt totally fit the Glint theme. I just chose it because its rainbow effects were nicely adding up with the rainbow crystals of Glints Lair.
Lore-wise i totally disagree though! The sylvari should feel a strong connection to the ancient spirits, especially since their whole culture is based on the historical tradition of one of them (Ventari).
There even is a dialogue between npcs in the Grove, where they talk about the mists and stuff, couldnt find the reddit post about it tho :(
