Curin Derwin, Guardian of the Pale Tree

The bitter frost has numbed this guardian from the pains of battle. The blades of his ice cut flesh and armor like a razor. Granting stability and guarding his allies with powerful magic, he remains an insurmountable foe on the battlefield, leaving only his allies to stand the victors.

Finding the right dyes for each individual piece was difficult, as they must compliment the Seafoam Green effect that Sky skin has on the armor's unchangable Sylvari skin dye slot. The Brook and Celestial White dyes on the leggings recreate the look of snow and add a fantastic blend that the outfit needed for balance.
The shattered wings are the natural fit as they are made of crystals resembling ice and are a perfect shade of blue.
Corrupted weapons give off a frosty, steamy glow that gives Curin the overall appearance of a cold entity in a warm environment.
Other choices include the newly added Shiverstone and the Icebreaker hammer. Since guardians cannot use axes, the legendary axe, Frostfang, was sadly not an option for a main weapon. However, warriors desiring this style can utilize the complimentary look of the legendary.

Overall, this blue armor removes any doubt on the battlefield that Curin is a guardian and this works both for and against an advantage in WvW situations. Being easy to spot in PvE and WvW signals others to gravitate towards you and grab some boons and heals.
Note: Sylvari Males currently have a bug while wearing the Nightmare Armor sets where light affects TA armor they wear differently than other Races or Female Sylvari's. This causes dramatically dark armor in fire areas and brilliantly bright aura when under the effects of the "chill" condition.
