I was just browsing the topic and I noticed your comment that you'd post a better picture.
I was thinking you might want to use an angle that doesn't distract from the colour scheme. :P

anyway...

Personally I use
Icing, Lifesblood and Ancient Gold.
Icing gives me that metallic shine I like :)

I change mine constantly.  Problem I've noticed lately is that when I'm altering the color of my armor I get booted to log in.  Reported the bug, I'm thinking some kinda afk kick although I'm not afk.

I use indigo, maroon, midnight purple on mhenlo's light armor graphics.

Just love this combination.

Posted Image
This is yew (green) + pastel sea (white)

Posted Image
This is sunset (red) + pastel pink (the very light pink)

Posted Image
This is just full Abyss, I know it's a very common armor these days, but I just wanted to show full Abyss can still look nice. (I'm still wearing those ugly chain boots/legs cause this is only a lvl15 warrior)
btw if anyone has a better combo for this, please feel free to show/share. :)

I'm looking for a different helm & gloves, I aim to be a kind of "angelic" guardian, you have any ideas on helm?
I quite like the CM helm, but it only has 1 dye slot, which kinda sucks in my opinion.

I tried the charcoal/redemption combo recently, works very well. Here are a few test I made with my favorite cloth armors (that I can access so far):

Hmmm, I assume it's a male human from body proportions, if so the only other suggestion I have is cultural tier 2.
Tbh I think it would do injustice to the look you have atm. The colours are so bold, especially with the style of the armor, but it matches so well. I doubt there's a second like that to be found in the game.

Yeah the dyes are wonderfull on that armor.
I really want new gloves (cause current ones only have 1 dye spot) and a new helm (I feel the current one doesn't really shows what I wanna be) but I just don't seem to find new ones that fit the set in its total.

Btw I never take my helm off (or hide it) cause on headstart day I was so hyped I pressed random in face/hair creation..
And yeah it's horrible.. :P

I absolutely love white gold and this almost white blue, forgot the name of it, on my guardian.  It is more white than anything.  Looks great.  Our guild colors are wrath and midnight blue.  I also love charcoal, know it's not a combo but looks great without paying a fortune.

Haha I'm flattered!
Euhm it Pastel Sea, and Sand dyes, both are very cheap.
I must say they don't look as good on light/medium amors, they're still nice, but it's on metal that they really shine. :)

Meh, I bought Celestial Dye on a whim today (someone had it 50s below the average cost) and tried it out on my engineer... the results were pretty awful.

If you want a white so white that it blanks out all the textures on your gear, or a black so dark that it does the same, then you'll be spending 5g on dyes. Otherwise there are a lot of nice almost-white/black hues that complement looks 10x better in my opinion. Then again, like all things colors, opinions are just opinions.

Personally, I like cool colors (on the spectrum that is, green/blue/purple). I also prefer colors that are muted as they fit in better with the game world, which is generally rendered fairly realistically. I tend to use Midnight Ice, Midnight Sky,  Royal Blue, Gunmetal, Pitch, Tarnished Steel, Burnished Steel...  Royal Blue. Midnight Violet. Cream, and Burgundy for accents. A lot of colors just look off on the medium armor set that I use.

Midnight Ice vs. Celestial on the chestpiece for comparison *shrug*

I use white, abyss, and sand,

very nice and beautiful armor. Can you please tell me what kind of armor you are using? it would be a great help

Strawberry and cream, with a touch of honey. You don't need rares to make a good combo.

I change my armor dyes pretty often. All dyes on the screen were found through leveling / farming. I haven't begun buying them (yet) due to legendary progress (FML).

I wanted to show the combination of white gold and blue ice.  It's gorgeous together and makes a guardian look really angelic. Sorry it's so big.  I'm at work without a photo editing program.

Armor: snapdragon (T1 sylvari cultural light)
Primary: midnight yew (darkest green)
Secondary: gown (bright medium purple) - apparently the filter disapproves of the small, clustered fruits from which wine is made, likely because of the last four letters. Regardless, that is the proper name of the purple dye I'm using, not "gown."
Tertiary: silver (pale grey)

I consider my color scheme triadic even though silver is essentially a shade of black and white, which isn't on the color wheel. I think it helps to stand out as an accent because it's considerably lighter than the other two dyes.

The neat thing about snapdragon (maybe all sylvari sets?) is that it seems to pull your skin color into the ensemble, too. Those "ribs" of the leaves on the chest aren't dyed silver, that's his pale grey-green skintone echoed in the clothing.

Green and purple are complimentary, I've always liked them together. The trick is to avoid standard bright green against standard bright purple, which turns you into the Joker (unless you're going for that).

Golden age superheroes were rendered using mostly primary colors because it's single process printing and saves ink, villains were rendered in secondary colors as contrast, which is why you tend to see lots of comic book villains blending green and purple. Orange is more rare for some reason.

Thanks! I'm a big fan of your character with the gladiator/knight style armor. At least the sort of Greco-Roman helm crest makes me think "gladiator." I've always loved knights in shining armor, so the primarily silver & gold scheme is a classic. That icing dye looks terrific for plate, it really brings out the details - I feel like celestial and abyss black are so intense they wash away finer points.

I'd recommend people trying for white and black actually take a look at charcoal/midnight anything (which will give a hint of color) and blue ice.
