SWTOR Shae Vizla / “Mynock” Mando Armour Build

* * * * * * *

Shae Vizla

In 2014 I set out to make this armor set for my wife who was at the time developing quite a liking for SWTOR herself. Half way through the project however, we divorced, and the Shae Vizla project was put on an indefinite hold. 

Then, in the summer of 2016, the folks at BioWare bestowed a huge honour on me by naming a character in Star Wars the Old Republic after me!

Mynock NPC

"Mynock" is a mando warrior NPC who can be found guarding the entrance to Shae Vizla's camp on the planet Darvannis in the STWOR expansion "Mandalore's Revenge". I had a little bit of say in the armor type, colour scheme and weapon he's sporting, so I set out to finish the armor for myself!
