I am not posting this outfit because I think it’s so original, because it definitely is not. Everyone who has done the Dunland quests has kept at least the chestpiece and the helmet and I see it used very frequently. However I did decide to post it because of this cloak. This “Specialist’s Cloak” is available from the Skirmish vendor for some 4,500 skirmish marks, and there are not many players willing to part with that many marks for a level 65 cloak. However, the Rise of Isengard expansion has seen a cloak design revival of sorts; random drops that repeat a cloak pattern that used to be a bit harder to acquire before the expansion. The cloak you see here is one of those drops, and instead of 4,5k skirmish marks it cost me only 200 silver. I think it’s one of the cloaks that is a perfect match to this chest and head piece, so now my champion is dressed up as my knight in shining armour (my real life knight however, wears a tweed overcoat instead of a cool cloak, and carries an iPhone instead of a sword, but oh well… ).
