I’ve always wondered how I was supposed to just hide my elf in the shadows since she was always wearing colourful dresses, but now I’ve got the gear for it! 🙂
Kidding aside, all the Dunland gear seems to have amazing colour properties. Everything dyes in solid colours, including solid black. It’s beautiful! However, I am beginning to wonder if that has something to do with changing an overall colour layer within the game that has affected for example the Robe of Viisaus and the Hood of Night, in the way that their “elusive” colour layer has been changed into a solid layer. A layer that is being used for all Dunland gear. I don’t remember the exact details, but I read a dev diary long ago about colouring in Lotro and how everything is coded in layers and pixels. Perhaps by making solid white and solid black possible, the older layers had to be changed, which caused a side-effect on other older gear.
Well that’s just a theory. In the meantime I am driving my scholar crazy because she has to keep refilling my stack of black dyes.
