Cosmetic Lotro

Battle ready

Of all races and characters I find dwarves the hardest to outfit. Their plump and awkward bodies do not seem very well suited to the average armour design. I haven’t posted many dwarf outfits yet, so I gave myself the challenge to come up with a battle ready dwarf armour, something that looks sturdy enough for the battlefield, yet doesn’t make my dwarf look like a sausage with a plate skirt. Fortunately the new Isengard armour pieces came to the rescue. A few of those designs are actually very usable on a dwarf. I combined it with a Rift cosmetic helmet (available at the skirmish camp) to complete the look.

The appearance of the cloak is also available as a crafted T7 item.
The chest piece, gloves and boots are now also available from the auction house as a level 75 item, as they drop from the new Isengard instances. I chose to exchange some of my bound quest rewards for these boe drops, as I can store those on an alt in stead of having them taking up space in my main character’s vault.

If you want to know where a certain armour piece or cosmetic comes from, you can look it up in the Lorebook, by typing its name into the search box. You can equip any piece of armour cosmetically through the wardrobe, even armour that is not meant for your class or level.

Chest : Scout’s Weathered Leather Jacket, burgundy dye (Dunland quest reward, medium)
Head: Ceremonial Helm of the Gloom-bane, crimson dye (Rift cosmetic)
Shoulders: Dunlending’s Shoulderpad of Battle, grey dye (Men of Dunland quartermaster, friend reputation)
Hands: Brud-durnvol, grey dye (Isengard instances drop, heavy)
Feet: Boots of the Charging Stag, grey dye (Dunland quest reward, heavy armour)
Back: Calhineb-clog, burgundy dye (boe drop from Isengard instances, light armour)

    Hey there, love that you have started doing some dwarf outfits 🙂
    I Agree with you that dwarves can be hard to outfit, but when you have done some you quickly find out what works and what doesnt. It seems that as of late, a lot of armor looks stupid on dwarves, and isnt “Scaled” propperly, for example the Ost Dunoth guardian shoulders, or the shoulders from the new raid.

    Keep up the good work

    Also agree with the difficulty of making outfits for dwarves! 🙂 Your design looks amazing from the front, though I must admit that I’m not 100% sure about the cloak – it’s a shame the orange areas are non-dyable. Even so, I really like it.
