I'm really stuck here...silver or gold?

On one hand great use of lorekeeper staff. The huge synergy between it and your breastplate cannot be ommited. The staff gives off the impression of a guardian of knowledge, a paladin, protecting the holy scrolls and knowledge of it's order. This in turn makes breastplate now serve that purpose. The intricate designs and strap of clothing across clearly give the impression of high class, refined knight, that fights for a higher cause. Rest of armor pieces do not detract from that impression.

The big disparity here is that aegis. You're a golden warrior top to boottom, even the glowing eyes. That gold is physical, and only the staff has delicate, tasteful light effects. And then pops out the uninvited aegis that has absolutely nothing to do with the look, or the message it's trying to relay.

And then we have another case of "brutal 2h weapon + small female arms". It's ok for her to have thin arms if it's a 1h sword or not overly massive staff (mages aren't professional weight lifters). But if you gonna walk around with a big massive thing like the genesis, your character should have arms to swing it.

So a silver from me cause there's no rank between gold and silver, which is how i feel.

Small tip for next time you do a guardian look session. You can make a new low level one (before f3 gets unlocked), than get low level gear and transmute it with your skins of choice. That way you can have a guardian photo shoot without aegis popping in uninvited all the time:)
