Deep in the woods of the Bitterfrost Forest there lives a lone spirit guarding the giant trees and the peace of the forest. Some say he originated from an ancient giant tree himself in order to maintain his species, seeing that monsters befall the forest and destroy his sprout. Sometimes one can see him running through the forest, just to vanish and become one with the trees again. Perhaps you will get the chance to see him some day?


Hey guys, I am back after a while!

I came up with this look for my guardian after exploring the Bitterfrost Frontier, so it is dedicated to that area (all screens were taken there).

Honestly, he is running around with this look since December but I had to take a break from gw2 because of my exams and didn’t play this game for a while after because I got bored with it :(
Soo I started to play gw2 again when the SAB (#bestAprilfools"joke"ever) came back and decided to finally upload this look :)

This look is nothing too special considering I mostly used Sylvari cultural pieces (and the theme is overused anyway) but I wanted to make him look like a frosty, snowy tree and the cultural armor obviously was the only way to achieve that.
While shoulders, legs and shoes look snowy, his gloves and blindfold shall look like ice and his hair like ice covered with snow.
He himself was part of a tree, as well as his bow, and his sword and focus were forged from ice.
The backpiece may be a bit flashy but it goes so well with the gloves and also kinda looks like ice, so it was the obvious choice for me.

I use GemFX and didn't alter the screens manually.

I hope you like him!


Very nice icy sylvari outfit! Amazing presentation too. Glad to see you back =D

I love the dyes and screenshots, they are pretty cool!
And I love how the Veil Piercer fits with the hair, it even looks cool from behind :)
My favourite screenshots are the main one and the 4th of the extra, the one aiming with the bow.

I love the gloves with his hairstyle and the veil-piercer. I also really like the etched shortbow. And honestly, the sylvari cultural pieces are some of the best skins in-game imo so if they're overused its for a good reason. Your dye choices make them look stunning. Gold

Thank you guys for all your nice comments :)

Very COOL look ... hahahaha ... i find the door myself xD
The icy theme is very well executed! While the crystalline skins like gloves and headpiece make for great ice appearence, the rest of your cultural armor looks like snowy trees. Especially the chestpiece looks nice with those dyes!
The presentation is top, very epic and mystical screens, love it!
Gold from me :)

Stunning look and screenshots :)

my gosh. been a while since you posted but totally worth the wait. This is a freezer of the highest magnitude and the coolness oozes out of him in spades.

The screens are of a very high quality comparable to Silvertree whom I feel has one of the best screens on this site.

Great post!

I really LOVE the dyes on this look, keeps it very interesting even if the armour mix is a little standard
But you spiced it up so well and your presentation is no less than stellar, big fat gold!

I've honestly never seen a Sylvari character as good as this. Great job. I'm curious what color dye's you used for this?
2017-05-01 13:37

wow, thank you! :)
if you mean the dyes of the armor, they are listed above (beside the main screen). just hover over the dyes and you can see what they are called. but they may look a bit different in your game because I use GemFX to enhance my graphics.

I think this is one of the best dye-combination I ever saw on an armor. It perfectly fits the theme. Gold!

The best male sylvari I've ever seen. Topping the old best which was also done by you "The Parasite in Me" haha!

Question, what are the skin Colour/Glow Color?
2017-06-11 1:34

omg thanks a bunch! I'm glad you like my male sylvari looks that much :)

regarding your question: his skin colour is called "blue rose" and his glow colour is "riverlet"

Which color hair are you using?

I think this is one of the best sylvari I've ever seen!

I initially thought it was a revenant, because of the headgear; but the blue is so fitting for a guardian! The shades work splendidly together. Good job.
