First ingame belt test.Ember Spirit Narensii 21

First shoulder ingame test. Each tassel is a separate object.Ember Spirit Narensii 22

First offhand ingame test. It’s too small and fire particles are out of control!Ember Spirit Narensii 23

Some tweaks later it’s more fitting, but fire particles are rampant.Ember Spirit Narensii 24

Main weapon tests.Ember Spirit Narensii 26

Tassel alpha test. We decided that separate belt tassels are more in line with the shoulder and make two pieces click.Ember Spirit Narensii 27

Some ingame tests. The detail map is sort of broken and just fullbright and not animated. The portrait is hella sexy though.Ember Spirit Narensii 28
