Guild Wars 2 Photo Challenge: Day 3

Favorite worn armor

Though I love the sylvari cultural armors perhaps the most in the game overall my favorite personal armor is the one my thief wears. It’s a mix of HotW for the top and pants with HoM gloves and boots. Also the Order of Whispers hood most of the time, which isn’t shown. (Dyes are Midnight Ice, Icing, and Evening Red)

It’s really difficult to find good form fitting armor for med class males and I really wanted something that looked tight and sort of strapped on while not being too bulky. The problem with a lot of medium armors for males is that even on the most slender models the coats are weirdly cut and make the torso look wider than it is.

I ground the heck out of HotW to get the pieces when I first decided I wanted to go with them, though I think it was worth it. I do wish it didn’t have the patented GW2 male buttflap but I do like how the front fits rather like a metal corset.

"When my Imperial thief did ‘A Night to Remember’ and was recovering the goat stolen from Rorikstead, she got attacked by a dragon partway through.  I can’t get over the mental image of a hungover Dragonborn yelling at a dragon to come back later because they’re in the middle of something."
