Cosmetic Lotro

A Steed from Minas Ithil

Is it true? Did she really go out of her way to buy me that steed? A steed from the Garden of Gondor? How did it come all the way over to these humble stables in Breeland? Is this really my horse?

Let’s see if it will listen to my call…

It is here! And it is mine!

And it flies like the wind on the Fields of Ithilien…

The Steed of Minas Ithil got to the Lotro Store today, and my mind was set on getting it for my champion, who is originally from Gondor. I think Turbine did a wonderful job on the design of this horse. The Ithiliens valued culture and art and were a proud and prestigious  people. This horse matches that ambition.
Horses are among the most expensive cosmetic items in the store. Other horses with equal speed can be obtained in game, but the looks of this particular horse are store exclusive.

I am sure I will be matching the horse with other outfits in the future, but for today my champion is dressed Evendim Blue. Hauberk is from the Anniversary boxes, the Helm and Cloak are from the store, Boots are from Annuminas and the gloves from my Runekeeper.

Chest: Plain Hauberk, Evendim blue dye

Head: Helm of Rohan, Evendim blue dye

Hands: Gloves of the Vicious Proclamation, Evendim blue dye

Feet: (Ceremonial) Boots of the West-Tower, Evendim blue dye

Back: (Ceremonial) Artisan’s Cloak, Evendim blue dye

    Really nice outfit, fits the Steed of Minas Ithil well! :) Do you know if there are any other items that share the gloves apperance? Googling them results in a RK item, but I don’t have any RK, so can’t get them in the wardrobe…

    • I really haven’t found them anywhere except on the new Evendim Warden’s Runekeeper outfit. I was surprised to discover those too! I would recommend all characters to go back to Evendim and check if there is anything useful in those new outfits. I still have to go back with my minstrel to get the starry chestpiece! If I happen to find the gloves anywhere else I’ll let you know.

    I really wanted the Ithil horse but couldn’t afford it. Nice to see it fitting with a good outfit. Maybe next time it comes around I’ll be able to get it. :)

    I have to admit, the Rohan helm bothers me. I have trouble getting past that triple-crest. I wish they made a single-crested version.
