An attempt at recreating the armor of the cavaliers throughout the Crystal Desert.

''Some anonymity would be nice...''

Simbi had to ditch her regal look for something more toned-down in order to get through the desert and her mission more easily. Being recognized as a descendant of the Ossa family causes a lot of friction, distraction and plenty of obstacles... She has no time for petty opinions on her ancestry, there is a rogue human god to be stopped! Thus she switched her queenly look for something along the lines of the Cavaliers of the Crystal Desert. Needless to say, the armor blends in much better and actually allows for plenty of agility in combat...

I was dissatisfied with my ele's look and wanted to give her something less regal and more rugged, ready-for-battle.

I love the female cavaliers' looks and remember being very intrigued by their armor when I first saw it during the PoF launch, hoping they would eventually turn it into an outfit which will probably never happen at this point :,).

Either way, I wanted to see if I could recreate the cavalier armor, I looked at all three armor weight classes and I feel like I came closest with this set. Cohesion is tricky, so I tried to focus on the main silhouette and feel of the original armor; asymmetrical, mostly leather with cloth and some light metallic details. I tried to emulate those key points with this mix and stick with the theme of the desert-guard.

Let me know what you think or if you have some other armor piece recommendations I may have overlooked. I am fairly pleased with how it turned out, given how limited I felt to the possible armor pieces that seemed suitable for this look.

PS: the Warbeast leggings cloth parts tend to saturate differently in lighting, so it's always difficult to find a good dye match.

since I don't have the head armor (I don't play PvP), I started looking for a feasible design - so I ended up with a male character with heavy armor, which in the end didn't really convince me (https://i.imgur.com/JPNQlW0.jpg)

Oh wow! I actually think u did really well, the helmet is a little hit or miss, the silhouette is there and the cloth is too, but the kodan chestpiece is really a great find!
