Cross class bartering

As you progress through Middle Earth you can earn different kinds of currencies. Some go into your Barter Wallet (Marks, Medals and Seals), and some go into your inventory and can be shared with your other characters (Medallions). If you have the Upgraded Barter Wallet, all Medallions will go in there as well and can be shared with all your characters.

At first you probably only use these currencies to gear up your character, but once you are satisfied with that, you may consider using some of these currencies to purchase armour from another class to use cosmetically. I recently realized that not everyone is aware of the different options that are available to obtain armour that is intended for a class other than the one we play, so I’ve tried to compile a summary of all cross class barter options.

Obviously, you would only buy armour from another class for cosmetic purposes, as you cannot use armour that you do not meet the class requirements for.
Don’t forget you need the Wardrobe to cosmetically equip armour from another class!

Reminder: the Cosmetics vendor also sells cosmetic versions from many sets.
