Palawa Joko, the Scourge of Vabbi, is an undead desert king and the current ruler of Elona. Over 450 years ago, he led an army into Vabbi, crippling the then-province and, from there, staged his conquest of the entire continent, all but defeating the three provinces of Istan, Kourna and Vabbi. For two long years the people of Elona suffered under his reign, until the last bastion of hope for Elona, the great Kournan general Turai Ossa challenged him to one-on-one combat, far above the Battle of Jahai. Turai defeated Palawa Joko and sealed him beneath the sands of Elona, where he was kept in his place by the Order of Whispers.
Here is a small video of the final battle
So as u all know I like to make cosplays or inspired looks. Mostly from Guild Wars 1.
I tried to make this look for a long time and it wasn't possible without the apostle head... at last I got It. This was a real challenge and i didn't think i could pull It off...But I am satisfied enough. hope u guys like him :)

Such a cool cosplay!
I love the armor-comb on its own! The blue bits add some nice highlights and i love the use of that headpiece :D
Your screens are amazing! The desert scenery fits perfectly for the theme and have some nice poses!!!
Great style on its own + a nice piece of nostalgia.
Gold for sure :D

That screen on the bridge on the last line... It looks exactly like that scene in the bonus mission pack of GW1 in which you play Turai Ossa fighting Palawa. Much memories, such gold wow.

I have no experience with gw1 but this is still great. It's rare to see earth themed Ele and I love the fact you used that hat. Gold

I'm not completely sold on the top and legs combo, it has too sharp of a break and does not blend well. I do love that you did not ignore the blue bits on the legs and incorporated it into the look. Gold OFC.

Thank you for your comment jesandsteven. The reason i choose this combo specifically is: It was the only combination which made the lints of palawa joko look like they were similar as to the real palawa joko version. now i know that can't be done. but i used my own creativity to make it work. sadly i am not happy with the pants and arm combo here but other combos were much worse. appreciate your feedback :)

That is one of the most original looks I have ever seen! Very good screenshots and of course perfect presentation. And as Ashwolf says, it looks nice for Earth Elementalist :p

That's probably the most faithful recreation I could imagine. And you already nailed Togo before. And the screenshots are incredible!

I really look forward to seeing any other GW1 characters you may recreate.

I wonder if this look can now be improved with a human with thinnest build and embiggening tonic along with avian/deathly pauldrons or maybe scourge tendrils? And perhaps with funerary armor pieces for legs?

the posture wouldn't quite match but the build would. just as norn build is too beast but the posture matches tho.and i will have no tattoos to make him look undeaad. however i can use this toy shell infusion for it now.
