A long time ago, when the outfit system didn’t even exist yet, I saw a burglar wearing these shoulders and headpiece and I completely fell in love with it. I didn’t have a burglar character in those days, and I never intended to level one either, so I discarded the idea of ever being able to wear this set. Until earlier this spring when I decided I was going to level my low level hobbit burglar, despite my slight prejudice against the class. To my surprise I really enjoy it! Well, actually I really enjoy the sneaking around mobs in dangerous areas, pretending I’m not there. When she finally made it into Mirkwood, the first thing I did after the starter instance was making a dash for Ost Galadh where the barters are. You can only talk to the barter that corresponds with your class, so if you ever want to purchase these, you need a burglar that can enter Mirkwood. Thankfully the shared wallet helped me out because I had enough Medallions of Dol Guldur that I had earned on other characters, to purchase the items immediately.
It’s not often anymore that I feel this happy about acquiring a cosmetic item, but I am extremely happy with this set, and I will surely use it again in some other outfit in the future. For this character I combined it with a dress and I think she looks very elegant and mysterious at once.
This Thursday the Farmer’s Fair is opening and to get an idea about what’s in store for us, read all about it in the The New Farmer’s Fair dev diary!
What I am more than certain of though, is that we’ll be able to obtain new cosmetics, because no festival in Lotro goes without them! So starting Thursday I will dive into the festivities and give you an update about the cosmetics as soon as I can.
Chest : Elf-queen’s Dress, Ered Luin blue dye (Lotro Store and Anniversary Flower Box, cosmetic)
Head: Dungeon-crawler’s Hood, indigo dye (Mirkwood barter, burglar)
