Just wondering if anyone has come up with some nice combinations of armors from various sets and pieces.

It was one of the interesting parts of Guild Wars 1 where you had many sets and you simply mixed them around.

I plan to come up with this (using the pvp locker) for my warrior: https://pbs.twimg.co...CkhCAAAlGaT.jpg
(Kudos points to people who figure out which pieces I used)

It's quite hard to try and match a set as they have different themes e.g. fur-outlining, etc but I think I did quite well. Although trying to make a ranger outfit simply just ended in failure. Buttcapes everywhere. Didn't try much of the light armor type or non-vigil clothing.

both of my mainly played characters right now have mixes.  my engineer has commando's pants and coat, whisperers shoulder/glove/boots, and the starter monocle on the head (until I get the dredge helm from SE).  my necro has winged pants, country gloves, seer's helm, a karma coat, starter/acolyte boots, and some shoulders (not sure which one, have them hidden).

I'm actually planning on mixes for almost all of my characters, because I really dislike a lot of the armors in game as entire sets, but like many pieces individually.

there's pics of my engy and necro in the screenshots forum if you wanna see, can't get to them right now.

I always mix them up.  These are the two sets my Necro wears the most often.  There's about 7 different sets mixed up in there.  XD

The chest just ended up looking good to me and i didn't see often on other character (it's also not a trenchcoat so it feel fresh). I don't see t2 as engineer friendly, and T3 is just too expensive. The only thing that bug me is when she run, her breats want to jump out every step.

Engineer are pretty static compared to ranger/thief. Thief jump around all the time, dodge and stuff, the dress would be in the way. Ranger are too wild for a nice clean dress like this. The engineer simply lay back, look classy and shot lol.

Here's my Guardian with Vigil gloves and boots, Arcon chestplate and pants from Orr, CM helm, and regular scale shoulders which I want to upgrade but I'm not too keen on the spikey choices I've seen.

My warrior. Vigil shoulders and chest, Barbaric leggings and boots, Pitfighter's gloves. I wish the Vigil chest didn't cut off so abruptly across her stomach, but I absolutely love the look from the back, so I'm not picking another type of leggings/chest armor. Colors are a subject to daily changes. xD

Pass me that "101 GW2 Fashion Rules" book when you're done with it.

Folks can dress their characters however they wish, you don't have to look at them ;)
