Cosmetic Lotro

Reveller’s Gilded Cosmetics

If just like me, you’ve been wondering why the 5th Anniversary loyalty cosmetics in the splash screens looked a little different from the real thing, here’s your answer!
Exclusive cosmetics & mount, similar but not exactly the same as 5th Anniversary loyalty cosmetics, now available for a limited time from May 11 to May 24, 2012.
These cosmetics and mount are slightly more ornate than the 4-year loyalty cosmetics.

I know I love the 4-year loyalty cosmetics, because they fit very well and because of their silk-like shiny texture. If these cosmetics are similar in quality, they are worth it!
For the mount collectors this looks like a very chique mount to own. As most store exclusive steeds it has the 68% speed and 250 morale. The good news is: its also available as “Account Wide”! This is the first time I see a store mount offered with an account wide option!

The cosmetics are also available with an “Account Wide” option, but if you have the Wardrobe, I don’t really see what the point of that is? Maybe I’m missing something here, but I usually delete excess cosmetics and keep them on only one or two characters.

    So they give 5year loyalty reward first and THEN put a more ornate version in the store?
    It cheapens the loyalty reward in two ways: firstly, because you basically can buy loyalty reward (for 4-5 years, no less) for money even if you played 1 day, and secondly because store cosmetics look even more elaborated. Something that only 4-5 years players had – the evidence of their experience – now is _sold_ and sold version is _better_.
    Am I the only one who thinks it is a very ignoble situation?

    • I think it’s totally cool and awesome that they make these items available to everyone! Granted, I do like the 5 year stuff better, because I have a preference for their simplicity, but it’s so nice that everyone will have the opportunity to acquire these similar items now. Now also the players that “missed out by a day” (or a week or year) can still enjoy similar items. I love it! And I’m part of the lucky ones that will have both sets :)

    Does it dye? This is all I need to know! :)

    Looks like the account-wide mount plus the outfit for one character is more expensive than the account-wide mount and account-wide outfit combo, so maybe it’s a “package deal”.

      • That is true — but: if you are like me and have every possible wardrobe slot full of something, maybe it’s not so bad for each character to have their own cosmetics.
        When Dunland came along, I agonized over clearing space for quest drops… now we have Great River cosmetics, like the famous and beautiful Hat of the Concerned Elf… this way, it’s a few more bank slots used per character (or not), but it saves me the agony of indecision about what to remove from the wardrobe to fit in the new stuff! :)

  3. The dress is really one of my favorites. I was so jealous of those who got it before, but not anymore!

    Account-wide would be useful if you play on multiple servers. You have something nice to wear when visiting the other servers for events! But I’m a cheapskate so I just got the single server version of the complete outfit. XD

    • I’m so glad everyone can get these cosmetics now! Though personally I prefer my simpeler Anniversary set. And I don’t blame you for getting the single set, the account wide deal is still very expensive!
