By day, he presented himself as a unassuming traveler with a penchant for parlor tricks and fanciful tales. The passersby were amused by the novelty of an illusionist charr, and they'd tip a silver or two. Some of the more adventurous ones, wanting to learn more about him, invited him to stay a while. These encounters would occasionally go on long after the sun had set, but he didn't mind. He had all the time he needed.

By night, he'd be long gone with a few valuables that could be sold off in the next town without a trace. Unless it was something too useful to part with, like a blade or two to channel magic through.
Charm the mark, steal their heart...the con felt too easy at times. Yet a thought lingered in the back of his mind: when would all these lies catch up to him?
This look is an attempt at rolling my own greatsword-wielding thief, inspired by discussions where people wanted that as part of their third elite spec. I also wanted to make a non-flashy character, so I avoided glowy equipment in favor of earth tones and skins with studded metal accents. Hopefully it all makes him look less like a mesmer and a bit more like a rogue out of a gritty fantasy setting :)

Arguably the most common Charr face, and a really popular shoulder piece, and yet it still looks unique and full of personality.

That's quite a feat, so it's a 5/5 for everything. Gold.

A nice and toned down look, I wish GW2 was full of such armor instead of nuclear-explosion-light-flash thingies. The only thing I have concerns about are legs. Because of heavily-looking badass boots, leg armor feels more like tights (see the last screenshot), which visually makes the lower part of your character heavier, especially in the area around knees.

But gold is gold, and I concur with the comments above.

I absolutely love it. Sometimes being a glowing blob isn't what I want, this is perfect.
