I have a golden steed! And her name is Laurë, which means golden light in Quenya.
Thanks to the unannounced Lotro store sale this weekend, with 50% off steed color dye packs, I’ve been able to furnish my main character with all possible color options, and my alt characters with a few selected packs. Everyone is at a loss as to how long this sale is going to last, as it isn’t announced anywhere on the store page, and while writing this post the sale is still on.
I have been looking forward to playing with my war-steed appearance options since release, but was deeply disappointed and discouraged when I saw the prices. Now with 50% off, the color packs have finally come within my reach and I busted my piggy bank of TP that I had been saving up for this purpose. I can finally make combined war-steed outfits!
The transformation from dull grey gelding to light golden mare amazed me and I totally fell in love with my steed for the first time. I’m sure I will try out many more appearances now that I have access to everything, but Laurë will always be special.
Today marks the First Anniversary of The Starry Mantle! Please hop over to her blog to tell her how absolutely awesome she is, not because you might end up winning some TP for leaving a comment, but simply because she is.
In addition, don’t forget to cast your daily vote for Harperella, every day from now on until December 21st. This most dedicated and creative Lotro kinship leader deserves the support of the entire Lotro community. She has given us so much, and this way we can give something back, so please vote!
