Celestial Armor is the top-tier (T9) reward in the new Paragon Rewards system, which launched as part of CITY OF HEROES FREEDOM. As such, we packed the set with as much cool stuff as we could think of. For starters, it's one of the first 'fantasy' themed sets in the game and one of the first to offer a ton of back details. The set features a large number of weapon options (not all shown here made the final cut), a cool riveted 'tights' layer, and all the latest texture FX (reflection, glow, etc.). As if that wasn't enough, Celestial comes with the game's first energy wings, which flow and undulate courtesy of our amazing FX team. All together, a pretty epic package that's worthy of the T9 distinction.
Artistically, I was inspired by divine/religious iconography--hence the glows, light, and omega symbols spread throughout. Another little detail I enjoy is the power source on the firearms: a tiny pinpoint of white light. I was thinking of the baby universe that powers the Authority's carrier ship when I drew that, not that you'd ever guess it from the art.
