The weeks before the release of Rise of Isengard, I had set myself some personal goals to achieve before heading into the new expansion. One of those goals was to finally finish up the last of the Enedwaith reputation that I needed for the World Renowned title and the beautiful white steed that comes with it. I managed to do all my daylies regularly, and finally made it to kindred with the Grey Company (which was the last of the factions) two weeks before release. I must admit I hated every minute of that Black Flames quest in the wolves cave, playing pacman with those horrible shadow wolves, but I made it! I finally got to ride that beautiful white horse.
There’s just one thing about the horse that I dislike, and that is the vivid red flag on its rear end. Why would anyone in his right mind ride around in the wild waving a huge red flag? I mean, isn’t that just asking for trouble?
When I obtained the horse I could not immediately think of a proper outfit, but with all the beautiful quest armour from Theodred’s riders, there is plenty to choose from now. When I obtained these leggings I liked them right away. I also knew I wanted the medium head piece, but it took me a while to get it because when I first had the chance to grab it in Gravenwood I chose a cloak instead (ah choices….). Fortunately the cap was offered again in Isengard and I could finally complete my horse riding outfit.
