Quick question to all of you who can match colors a lot better then I can.

My problem is right now my main Sylvari has the blackstone skin and the midnight ice hair color with the green grass glow. While I love the look it gives, I'm having a hard time with the armor colors. I finally started getting some dyes that I like (abyss, emerald, etc.) but with the neon green glow it just seems off when I have her wear the darker green colors. So far I have been trying to match the armor to the glow but that left me with this lime green colored armor that I really do not care for.

So basically how have all of you guys been dealing with armor colors compared to the bright neon glow colors. Any and all help would be welcome.

Depends on taste I suppose ~ but I made several Sylvari in the BWE's and tried a boatload of dyes on 'em. IMHO, colors of the same tone or degree of brightness worked pretty well, even if they weren't "matching". For example, my Sylvari with a bright purple glow looked good in bright pink, bright green, etc. Alternately, I find that light pastel shades can look pretty nice with brights, for example lime green with a nice matching pastel green (as the glows wax and wane). Another thing that might work is using your lime green dye as an accent color only, to give the outfit some "pop".

And yet another suggestion, you could make the main color of her armor coordinate with her hair color and/or her skin pattern color (depending on what it is, of course).

Sylvari can be pretty tricky to pick dyes for, though! I've been fiddling with the character creator for awhile trying to make my Sylvari, and thinking of what colors she will look good in is definitely a factor. Best of luck to you! :)

I've read someone talking about Pink Slvari.

Only thing, i'm still deciding hair...

Made my necro yesterday and decided to play around with the face a little bit.  It was very hard to settle on a glow for her.  Overall I'm pretty pleased with how she looks Posted Image

I actually find the choices for Sylvari to be a bit overwhelming. Satisfied with how my female elementalist came out but I think instead of making a male Sylvari for my last character (a Necromancer) I will go with female Charr or Human instead.

Under what conditions does your skin and hair glow in the game?  When I turned the light option off in character creation my elementalists hair was really intense. She looks like one of those old fiber optic decorations from the 70's.  But in game so far she hasn't really been so glowy. Even at night time.  Where is it dark enough to take advantage of the glow?  Dungeons?  Specific maps?

I'd choose 2nd, they kind of fit those features imo. But you're not pink until you're this pink. :P

I think with Sylvari the cultural armor is the best! It also glows and stuff so that works out pretty well.

love It!! Makes me wanna do another sylvari, probably with tree color theme like yours, a warrior perhaps. I already have a dark barkface(can i say that?) sylvari thief that glows red and look almost exactly like some post here and another avatar-like sylvari ranger. <== might reroll coz white glow doesn't show much with blue skin.

how does it glow btw? what color did u use?

*sigh, all 8 slot are used...

I love the options for sylvari. I have the same problem as you, Laughter - I'm am perfectly happy how my mesmer sylvari turned out and I have no idea how I did it ^^ I will just have to play around with the sliders till I'm satisfied...
Here she is:

I noticed in the stresstest that the bodytypes are the same in the upper and bottom row - but with different "texture", so one is more like bark. I wonder how I missed that the last BWE... but it's really a great choice-addition!

My Sylvari was my first toon that shares the name of my main in GW1 so I tried to make her look like my Necro in GW1 as much as possible.  I failed :)

I aimed for a rose motif with my sylvari. In this armor she looks more like a strawberry, though! (Her armor is a combo of Lifesblood and Cherry dyes.) Hooray for pink/red sylvari. :)
