Cosmetic Lotro

Drama Queen

This outfit, with exception of the shoulders, is an all skirmish cosmetics outfit. I like the fact that you can barter for cosmetics with skirmish marks, and I really hope the devs will continue to add nice outfits to the skirmish collection with the expansion. I would love to see more cloaks! Skirmish cosmetics have no level requirements, though the skirmishes themselves that drop the marks do have a minimum level. However if you cannot yet do or don’t have certain skirmishes available, you can always ask a friend to barter it for you in return for gold or another favour. You can also buy the dress and the cloak in the store, but that kind of defeats the purpose of doing skirmishes in the first place. Because why would you run skirmishes unless it is for cosmetics? 😉

Chest: Gossamer dress, sea blue dye (skirmish and store cosmetic)

Head: Winged Circlet, sea blue dye (skirmish cosmetic)

Shoulders: Elven Leather Shoulder Pads, sea blue dye (medium armour smith Rivendell)

Back: Cloak of the Silver Star, sea blue dye (skirmish and store cosmetic)

    Nice combination and I like the colour a lot. 🙂 I don’t think she needs the shoulder pads though, not with all those handsome men of all races around to catch her when she falls. 😀

    You suggest asking a friend to get you a skirmish cosmetic for you – is that possible? I thought they were all BoA when you got them that way. I dislike skirmishes immensely and on most of my characters have only done the quests to open them up because in some of the epics you have no choice but to do them. This might be a way for me to get some of the nice shinies. 🙂

    Question about cloaks: I’ve just kitted my RK out with the shabby tunic, legs and hat from the Yule festival, along with his Rift-set boots. I found a really low-level pair of small shoulderpads to make him look a little less weedy, but he needs a cloak to finish the outfit off. Do you know of any tattered or shabby-looking cloaks that will go with this set? Currently he’s wearing the Cloak of Falling Leaves which matces with the colour I dyed him, but it’s too rich-looking. 😀

    • Hi Pointy! Skirmish cosmetics are all BoE (even the Rift ones), so you can trade and mail them, store them on an alt or sell them on the Auction House. Concerning your shabby outfit, I would try for one of the new Inn of the Forsaken cloaks! However the mark drops are rare, so far five runs and nothing… But you only need 1 mark for a cloak, so it’s a matter of luck. Otherwise just a plain cloak? Or a Sage’s pack from the store?

      • Pointy

        Oh a pack.. That’s worth a look. I don’t really like the packs so haven’ t actually got any except for one simple quiver that my hunter wears (for obvious reasons) on his outfit. I’ll go check those out.

        Can you run the IoF instance solo? I’ve not looked into that yet and don’t even actually know where to go to find it (although ‘Forsaken Inn’ would be the obvious choice). 😀

      • Yes you can run IoF solo and you will need to visit the Forsaken Inn in the Lonelands to open up the instance. However running it as a 65 on level 20 can still be deadly! The traps are really nasty. I don’t know how many chests it would net you as you cannot fulfill the “perfect fellowship” options. On top of that, mark drops are not guaranteed. It is a bit discouraging that the droprate is so low. It is more of a puzzle/skill instance than hack/slash instance. Some prefer that, but as a healer I personally like the fight action much more than the “don’t step on this tile” and “run through the gauntlet without dying” assignments.

        Wooo 😀 Ran it tonight on level 20 with my level 65 LM and got a mark. My RK is now sporting a shabby cloak with holes in it in a lovely shade of orange. 😉 Thanks 😀

        I quite liked that instance. I don’t like skirmishes because they seem to be ‘kill stuff for the sake of killing it’ and that’s not why I play the game. I loved the puzzle aspect of this one. 🙂

      • Pointy

        He looks suitably tattym if brightly coloured. 😉 The whole ‘orange’ thing was to go with his rift-armour boots which I liked. I don’t know if I can link pics here?

  2. Wow. I love the combination. And up to now I was always wondering what sea blue could even be used for. Nice idea, I’ll have to see how I can myself fashion something of these colors. 😀
