This is Nomous Tidehunter, my (Sylvari) Warrior.

Lately I found myself exploring some underwater places and came up with the idea of making a Sylvari that has a fishy look. Since every Sylvari represents some plant, Noumus is some sort of coral. He always felt connected to the sea, and everything that lives in it. To move faster underwater, he learned to grow tentacles from his back but he still needs a breather to survive down there...

Hope you like my look ^^


Interesting concept. It looks more like a coral reef than a fish, I like that since Sylvari are "nature's children". Nice dye-job and presentation. I am glad you only used the Karka Shell under water. Gold from me.

Apart from the pants which I felt didn't fit, the rest is astoundingly good, especially our dye choices and presentation. Very original concept too and one of the few top notch aquatic based designs. Gold!

What a cool water-style sylvari!!!
I love that he looks like he has corals on his body, kinda reminds me of pirates of the caribbean :D
Im not entirely sold about the legpiece, but i guess there arent many options to play around with, considering your theme. The torso-comb however is absolute slayer! I love the texture of the pieces and your colour-choice is brilliant!
Your screens are quite nice too! Some could be a bit more zoomed in, but thats minor critique ;)
Gold for the unique appearence and creative style!

By the Pale Tree, this is a great concept! Very original and your allover comb + dye-choices are really well done. Yeah not sure about the legs, but heavy-classes always have it a bit difficult - under these circumstances the best choice you could make I guess :P
Gold from me!

I got a nack for aquatic sylvari myself and as such I absolutely adore this look!
Especially the top part looks so good with the colour scheme you chose, it looks so amazing!
I am in agreement with the rest that the legs stick out a little, for me not even so much in their style, but more the way you dyed the main metal part, it´s a little too dark for me (maybe try the Cinders there?)
But other than that this is such an amazing upload, love the screens, love everything, gold ^^

Very nice armor mix and dye job. GJ.

You've absolutely nailed the colourscheme here. I wonder if maybe the Nightmare Court legs could work here with that colourscheme?

I voted on this already, but hadn't left a comment because I was unsure of what to say....

Other than commenting on how great the guy's color scheme is and how it matches what you wanted to represent perfectly, I wasn't really sure how to say that this was a good look and that I didn't have any real criticisms on it.

The only teeny tiny thing is that the legpiece does look a wee bit off to me, but that's a minor thing....

Gee, I'm not very good at this...

Reminds me of Abe from Hellboy

I love this!! One suggestion I would offer is to find armor pieces without metal. I also play a heavy sylvari and know how hard this is, but I do think it would add a lot to the look because swimming around with metal on isn't very functional :P My recommendation would be arah legs, dye the metal parts a leather dye like charred, and invisible boots (or a more sleek pair). Gold from me for creativity

I love every bit of this! so much thought and effort went into the look! This underwater look is so unique, and you totally pulled it off! GOLD from me!!

Love this! I've been looking for more coral/natural sea inspired looks and this one is great. Kind of colorful-Orrian.
