Because we need more armor threads and armor, and the mesmer sub was missing it!
This is my mesmer in the Order of Whispers set (sort of) only the chest piece and skirt are from that set, the gloves are generic blah that dropped, same with the boots and headpiece, the shoulder piece is from the cabalist set. That is quite possibly my favorite shoulder piece for casters. Dye is just Iron and Hot Pink. =D
