    Yeah, so I tested out the screenshots... and the high res, lossless format still works fine. You just have to put -bmp in the command line for the shortcut to GW2.
    (Note that I convert them to png before I put them on an image host. bitmap files are friggin' huge.)

    Here's my Necromancer at 70. Eventually, I'll find some gloves and shoes I like that go with her growing-out-of-me plant armor.

    this is seriously lvl 20 stuff crafted with tailoring o.O cant believe how awesome it looks (imo ) i never played a mmo where a character could look like that on lowlevel and i think its great.

    That set starts becoming available at level 5, too. Just the mask and shoulders come later, if I remember correctly.

    I just wish it didn't have the big ugly orange flower that you aren't allowed to change the color of on the pants.

    Managed to get the T3 cultural set yesterday and I'm loving it so much! I'm definitely not changing my look anytime soon

    the bmp format for screenshots atm is a shadow of what HD screenshot were during beta. a typical bmp screenshot now uses your native resolution to capture the images whereas HD bmp screenshots captured images at a resolution of 7680 x 4320. file sizes at full graphics and resolution for me were around 100 mb per screenshot. i will try and show you some from beta, but please note that due to their large size i had to convert them from bmp to jpg as png was still around 65 mb whereas jpg was around 7, so just bear that in mind.

    Why would you even need something that big? Are you planning to print posters?

    personally, it's the closest a screenshot can look to how you see the game when you play. and with the large resolution you can zoom-in to the the smallest details before you experience a loss of clarity and quality. as an example my Necro's Blood Fiend has such great detail and you can see its entrails in such high detail and clarity from an HD screenshot, it really shows the high attention to detail Arenanet have poured into this game.

    if you guys want to see the HD screenshots i am talking about in all their glory leave me a link to a site i can use to upload ~100mb screenshots for you. we should really press Arenanet to bring back HD screenshots!

    That is Sylvari T2 + gloves and boots from Twilight Arbor and T3 longbow. I'd love to have full T3 heavy armour on this character but that is too freaking expensive for me. I never had more than 15g on me and full set costs 100g+.

    Anyway I'm having a bit of a trouble with armour colours as I'd like them to match my weapons. Anyone have any suggestion on dyes?

    ::EDIT:: sorry about image quality

    Yay! Ding lvl 30 and Lion's Arch again.. Finally found out my favourite class in this game, probably should have tried Guardian like the moment I got the game.. And I'm the worst what comes in taking screenshots but here you go..



    Crafted Scale Armor and a Krytan Greatsword, dyes: Midnight Fire, Cinnamon, Cashmere

    Maybe even get extremely lucky, like me!

    I got the Greatsaw Greatsword Skin in the Black Lion Chest, and sold the skin for 66 gold, I bought the whole set except the helmet for the gold I already had, and the gold I got from the skin I sold

    I really, really love the Human Heavy Tier 3 set.
