    What are you wearing?!

    How do you wear your rares?!

    Instead of putting you all to sleep with a long essay explaining this, I'll show you what I mean with a few pics!

    Rather than show you Athelas (*snore* boring, you've all seen him... haha maybe later), say hello to my crafter!

    He wears:
    1. A full ringmail suit Made By Erik The Armorer
    2. A Cloak Made By Arilyn Moonblade
    3. An old tagged faction straw hat
    4. Boots Sewn By Valkyrie
    5. A Staff Made By Cymoril
    6. Royal Guard Artisan (Full Apron)

    Tasteful?

    Elegant?

    Timeless?

    Gaudy?

    Hideous?

    What are you wearing and how do you wear them?

    Show us!

    After several reply's to the oversized pictures, I resized them - hopefully that helps us move forward! I want to hear how everyone else wears their rares!

    Very Nice Setup @Athelas ... I like Timeless as a great description for you. I am a big fan of Double Blessed Items, so much so I named my crafter Blessed Blessed. I also like to display myself VERY COLORFULLY!
    I do apologize for the picture quality, Long explanation, but print screen is not a button I have - I just took the photos with my phone.

    OOOH, I love threads like this! Nice stuff so far everyone!

    I try to fit things that are similar with one another if possible onto my characters. Thematic, if you will. Of course I like to play dress up to, but I do have a few go to themes for my ladies.

    Here is Adeka again, her ensemble as changed a bit since you last saw her here. I wanted her to be rares and love. Here's what I mean:

    Adeka one.png Adeka two.png Adeka three.png
    Adeka four.png
    Adeka five.png
    So she's has some neat stuff now! The cloak was made by my friend Scott's crafter 'Blessed Blessed' so I had to Bless it myself!

    Here is Aura Lala, my Necromancer Magician Tamer. She is dark and brooding lady, full of mysticism. And I tried to reflect that in her attire:
    lala 1.png
    lala 2.png lala 4.png
    lala 3.png

    And Hera De Lune here, her name means 'Hera of the Moon'. So I tried to get as many items signifying she was the true goddess of the celestial sky!
    Hera 1.png Hera 2.png
    Hera 3.png

    And lastly, Collection. Collection loves love.
    coll 1.png coll 2.png
    coll 3.png coll 4.png
    And apparently, she also likes to sleep! :D
    coll 5.png

    That's all I will bother you all with. I hope you enjoyed it :)

    @BluNtMaN[ATL] your sandals are one of my fave items in game. Great items!

    No one will ever admit it, but many of us owe thanks to @Athelas for items we have in our collections - Major props to Athelas!

    Indeed Scott, indeed. I often wonder how certain collectors even have collections if it just so happens that a particular year wasn't a big selling year for me.

    Are recovered from a shipwreck items hard to come by now or just certain ones? Any chance you have a link to a discussion about it?

    The older ones are single line gold tag "a blah blah blah recovered from a shipwreck".
    The new ones the "recovered from a shipwreck" tag is on the second line and in white.

    single line tag are increasing hard to find, especially on certain items. finding one with a prepatch (blessed) tag from the same period is even rarer.

    Thank you! Just coming back to the game after a break and I know I have some items somewhere in my houses. Guess I'll have to go through and try to find them!

    She has good ring and earrings :)

    It's simple coordinates cause she is a thief. *grin*
