People of the Stars

The Elves first awoke under the stars (the Sun and Moon did not exist), and the stars were the first thing they saw. The earliest words spoken by the Elves are associated with the stars. According to Elvish legend, ele was a primitive exclamation ‘behold!’ made by the Elves when they first saw the stars. From this origin derived the ancient words el and elen, meaning ‘star’.” Moreover, when Oromë first met the Elves, he too associated them with the stars and named them the Eldar, the People of the Stars.

One of the nice surprises among the quest rewards in Thinglad, The Great River, is the Cloak of the Rescuer. This cloak shares its pattern design with the Harbringer’s Cloak, a pre-order gift from the Mirkwood Expansion. Because I never pre-ordered Mirkwood there was no way I could ever get this cloak, so I was very pleased to find the same pattern  on this cloak, with the difference that this is an unhooded version, while the Harbringer’s Cloak is hooded.

The ceremonial version of the Leggings of the Seven Stars has been available at the Skirmish camps for quite a while in game, but has now moved from the Classics vendor to the Cosmetics vendor. The ceremonial version is cheaper than the original version, which remains available at the Classics vendor. The Fine Elven Circlet is a rare cosmetic item that drops (or at least used to drop) from Anniversary boxes. These days it also drops from the infamous Steel Bound Loot Boxes. These Loot Boxes do have some uncommon cosmetic items in their loot table, such as the circlets and short sleeved dresses.

If you want to know where a certain armour piece or cosmetic comes from, you can look it up on Lotro Wiki, 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.

Head: Fine Elven Circlet, default dye (drop from anniversary or loot box, cosmetic)
Shoulders: Noriel’s Folly, rust dye (Great River quest reward, light)
Chest

Hands: Gloves of the Forbidden Love, rust dye (Great River quest reward, medium)

  1. I’ve been very happy with some of the quest rewards from the Great River. This cloak is wonderful. Thank you Turbine 🙂

    I love how all the colors come together on this outfit. The cloak matches the blue in the shirt, the green and browns in the shirt match the pants ect… You always do such a superb job of styling your outfits.
