Im having trouble on deciding which "set" to get. Has anyone managed to think up a nice armor combo with using these new pieces for all of the classes?
*additional note - male human ele (i know, i know :P ) so would like to know for this class especially

As an Asuran Elementalist myself, I also had a hard time finding which armor would suit best with the radiant set since not many light armor has this "heavy" look the radiant has.

Eventually, I found out the almost perfect match:

The Honor of the Wave light armor offers an interesting look.

Citadel of flame, light, male, seems to be an interesting set for the Hellfire parts too.

Well , I had the set parted with only the CoF chest (you can't see the pants anyways) and it looks ridicilous. Since the light CoF chest is a bit dready , where the Hellfire set is massive with little detail.

And Yes, I haven't dyed it correctly , but still , it looks weird. It's like the shoulders aren't really fitting on the shoulders. Sweet boots though!

Well... It's a matter of perspective and taste I guess, because when I previewed the Cof Armor with certain dyes, it didn't look that bad and it's the most fitting armor for the Hellfire set unfortunately, or should I said it's the only fire-themed armor we have so far. Plus, since the armor covers the whole arms with lava, it creates a nice transition.

Though maybe Surrow's Embrace has some potential too?

Never mind.

Well it's really a matter of tastes. The look of the Hellfire set makes my hair stand, so I'm passing on that for sure. Besides, it will probably take us at least 9K achievement points to get all three pieces. That's a level many of us have yet to reach at that point and many of us are quite far from that level.

The helms are ugly though. Imo Radiant gloves and shoulders look really good with heavy T3 armor sets with Celestial dye (particularly on humans). Unfortunately, I can't think of (m)any combos for Asura (maybe T3 Asura medium with Radiant) and certainly can't think of any light armor combos.

When (and if) I do achieve the set of three Radiant pieces, this could be one of the looks I would work towards (it's actually a minor rework of my current look):

The radiant glow hurts my eyes, but damn it's pretty.

Does anyone know which silver-ish dye best matches the metal parts on the Radiant stuff?

I don't have the vambraces yet so I have to do split screen so you can see the dragon wings and zenith sword.

Played around a little on the weekend - this is what I came up with - quite pleased with the result (But it means I have to get 1200 Achievement Points any time soon! :( )

I'm quite in love with the Sylvari cultural armors for the Hellfire Armor...to be honest..And no, my name is not really Bob :D

Sylvari looks awesome with the Helmet in those armors too, by the way.
