ZeftheWicked.3076 Posted September 28, 2021 Share Posted September 28, 2021 (edited) I know there are bigger issues out there, but everytime i see it.... i just can't. This art completely misses it's mark and totally fails to convey it's message. Let's start from the top: 1. Why is a Canthan profession depicted by big black buff dude? Cantha is an asian themed area, which according to lore was sealed off to outsiders for good two centuries. So pretty sure I should be seeing an asian bladesworn there. More over the "Black community inclusion box" has been checked with Spellbreaker, which is fully justified in his case and is done WAY better on many levels... 2. Sheathed Gunsaber. So remember how I said Spellbreaker does it way better? His artwork clearly shows profession weapons front and center. Bladesworn? The gunsaber is sheathed and that makes it look no different that just some decorative sword. It's unsheathed gunsaber that looks like gunsaber and cannot be mistaken with anything else. 3. Draconic armor. Really? Spellbreaker wears elonian garments, indictive of his ethnic background and culture. One glimpse tells "this guy is from the Desert regions". Here? Well...this guy is from core Tyria, obviously.. 4. Offhand pistol anyone? Has anyone seen it? I heard Bladesworns use offhand pistols, but apparently the artwork thinks otherwise. Now if we had artwork that depicts actual Canthan Bladesworn in his dragon trigger stance with gunsaber exposed and pistol on the side of hip facing the player, that would be a major improvement imho.
