Ever since the very beginning I’ve been totally in love with these leggings, especially dyed black. They come from the Burglar Rift raid set. But back when I was running the Rift I was doing it on my minstrel, and could not barter for burglar leggings. The minstrel leggings are nice too, but these… oh my. Back then I didn’t have a burglar high enough level to run the Rift, nor was there such thing as bound to account tokens, much less a shared wallet. I do have a high level Burglar now, but that’s of no use since nobody is running the Rift anymore!
So thank you Turbine for making these items available to all classes in the form of cosmetics. I finally have those leggings, and they look great on my female characters!
The head piece has another story, just like the leggings I’ve loved it from the beginning, but don’t have a Hunter high enough to run the In Their Absence instances and Ost Dunhoth raid. However regardless of class you can barter in Harndirion for any item you like, and the medallions of the Northmen that you need to purchase these items go in the shared wallet. Easiest solution would have been to just have one of my high level characters barter for it, were it not that their vaults are already packed with bound stuff and I am definitely planning on levelling my Elf hunter some day (probably somewhere around 2014). So with his meager 15 levels I sent him over on his horse to Enedwaith to go barter for that head piece. Actually that was a lot easier than I thought! With a speed boost on his horse, swimming and fording rivers, and staying on the path as much as possible I made it without incidents. So now my hunter has a head piece and a good reason to level up, hoping that some day he may make use of it (emphasis: some day…).
As Ketani mentioned in one of her comments, this chest piece is both loved and hated. It has straight sleeves on males, but females get this horrible “Michelin Man” design. Dyed black it doesn’t show as much and I thought that look was acceptable considering it’s also a good match to the leggings.
