Hiho Guys!

Today I wanted to show you my Guard Alice Ripley :)
She's my main char for nearly 4 years and i like to imagine her as a graceful and quite person, who barly talks. Alice is a silent hero who fought against the Elder Dragons, but she would never brag about her victories and always takes care to treat others respectfull and dignified, since these manners mean the most to her. Before she became the commander of the pact, she was a loyal guard of Queen Jenna and dosen't hesitate if help is needed.

Her look:
I wanted to have something different than the Aetherblade Legplates, which i've used for over a year. With her look i wanted to make her look more bulky and more like a guard, but maintain that she looks graceful and noble. That's why i used a white-golden colour sheme for her. Thanks to Anet, that they've finally realeased some pretty gold tones :)
I've always been in love with the guild pantes and i love the details, as well as the ones of the Illustrious Breatplate and i really like how the golden dyes shine on them.
The Wreath of Cooperation underlines her noble kind and has been on her head since some time (atm i sometimes switch it with the Shattered Bloodstone Circlet ^o^).
Moreover i like the details on the shoulders, and never thought that such a simple skin would look so good on her as the Banded Pauldrons do.
I usually use Eternity on her, but i also owe the white asc greatsword since it fits so well to the rest of her look.

So i hope you guys like her as much as i do :)


haven't seen this combo before and it looks really nice :)
I especially love the top half. the breastplate, gauntlets and shoulders go very well together!
very nice look, gold :)

Really cool idea that brings some fresh ideas to the overdone angelic white/gold theme
The armour mix with the top and shoulders in particular is something I didn´t see too often already and the dye job is nice and natural, not too shiny or over the top ^^
Your greatsword is spot on and your presentation really is top notch!
A big gold for you ^^

You really did find the middle ground in the sea of golden looks;not too bright, not too dark just about right. As Elessar mentioned the top armor combo is very unusual and it really helps the look to stand out from the crowd. The only detail I dislike about the armor is the way how the top and lower parts look slightly different , but alas you did the best you could with the armor's textures so nothing major there. Otherwise the dye combo is very good.
The screenshots convey your loyal guard backstory nicely, oh and the greatsword matches nicely as well.
Have a well deserved Gold . :)

haha thanks :)
i usually use Chaos of Lyssa on her, since the gold tone of light of dwayna dosen't fit to the golden dyes i'm using e.e

Thanks Garrius :)
the thing with the top part and the leg armour bothers me a bit as well ^^ i would like to have some pants with a skirt, which have some fine details like the chest has, but i rly didn't find any .___.
Anyways, thanks for the kind words :)
