The digital download of the Mithril Edition is on sale, which is a great deal for everyone. Not only is it the cheapest way to buy 2000TP, you get a beautiful and unique horse for all your characters as well! Granted, the horse is only nice for its skin, as it has merely 100 morale, but that’s still good for starting characters or visits to friendly areas.
In this outfit I used a pair of leggings (well actually it looks more like a long skirt) that were obviously designed to go with a matching chest piece, however this particular chest piece only looks good on males. On female characters (women, elves and hobbits), it looks horrible as it flattens the chest completely and looks generally awkward. Still many players like to use these leggings on their female characters and I have seen several good and some less successful combinations on the Cosmetic Outfit thread on the forum and on various outfit blogs. After a lot of trial and error I finally found a top that I am satisfied with for my own outfit. Unfortunately this cosmetic chest piece does not allow for the use of gloves, but I consider this a minor compromise.
I used burgundy dye for this outfit but dyed black it looks totally awesome!
