Guild Wars 2 Fashion: Whispers

An Order of Whispers inspired fashion outfit.

Dressed in deep purples and rich reds there is no doubting which Tyrian order Leopard Lacewing subscribes to.

"Knowing is half the battle. Or so they say. Well, the Order of Whispers is definitely in the business of knowing."

The look

  • Exalted Mantle
  • Inquest Vestments
  • Whispers Leggings
  • Acolyte Boots
  • Penetrating Wraps (personal story reward)
  • Usoku's Needle
  • Midnight Purple, Lifesblood, Ruby, and Antique Gold.

EDIT: I was asked to upload a screenshot showing it off in daylight so here it is! Taken outside the LA bank - all four sides shown and includes the colour palate as a bonus. Linking it as it is quite the large image.

Thoughts

The Order of Whispers philosophies are my personal favourite so I wished to have a set of gear suitable to the order. Instead of the bells and whistles of the light armour, I wanted to find a sleeker look more typical of medium armour sets.

My favourite part of this set is the diversity. Guild Wars 2 armour sets are often distinct in their styles. To be able to mix and match so many sets with such a coherent result makes me proud of this outfit. Usoku's Needle also steals a place close to my heart - matching the gold highlights, sleek, and functional.

    Just as you say - the fact you have made this armour your own simply by switching in and out a few armour pieces here and there and yet still result in a cohesive appearance is simply outstanding. You've given the Order of Whispers a new wardrobe to go by. Good job!

    A very nice looking, simple outfit perfect for an assassin. It gives off a very covert feel, the kind of feeling I'd get from infilitrators and the like. It's a shame that in realistic scenario's the Sai (dagger) would give it away.

    I agree aswell that the Order of Whispers medium armor is a bit too extravagant for a secretive order which is why I very much like this armor and will be checking it out on my ranger with a bit more vibrant color scheme.

    Finally, a request: could you upload some screenshots with more light on it? It's very hard to see any detail on the larger dark parts and distinguish the specific armor pieces.
