I don’t really know where to start with outfitting in Rise of Isengard. There is such a large selection of new armour pieces and cloaks that it is hard to make a choice. I decided on the medium armour chest that is a common reward from the initial quests in Trum Dreng and the Bonevales. It appears as a quest reward in several places. The boots in this outfit are light armour, but they have a nice design. However this design does not show up on female characters unfortunately. On female elves and women the boots miss the fold at the top and are just simple straight boots. This might be confusing when choosing quest rewards. It is not uncommon in Lotro that items have a different design on males and females, many crafted items differ in design or default colours, so it’s probably not a bug.
I hope you are all enjoying yourselves as much as I am. I think the questlines are a lot of fun and very well designed. The layering system is still a bit buggy but I am sure they will work that out very soon. Overall it is a very well designed expansion with a lot of attention to detail especially to the design of the new armour pieces.
