“On all her breezes borne,
Earth yields no scents like those;
But he that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.”
― Anne Brontë
I was finally bold enough to make a rose coloured outfit! I’m so proud, ha ha. I have always pretty much avoided rose dye. I think it makes most armour look like Barbie clothes and I’m not playing Hello Kitty but Lotro. Actually my female characters all wear mostly earthen colours like umber, sienna, black and olive. Sometimes I will throw in a little red or blue but I usually avoid the brighter colours like sea blue, purple and rose. Nevertheless I love it when I see players that use those colours in very original ways, it’s just not so much my style, at least it wasn’t until I saw Nathrien’s rose outfit and thought it was brilliant. It inspired me to come up with a rose coloured outfit of my own. So here’s the result: tough girls wear pink!
The shoulders in this outfit can only be obtained by Minstrels at the Minstrel class trainer in Moria, so even though these are cosmetically one of the best items in the game, they cannot be obtained by all classes. I hope that Lalia will some day soon add these to her collection at Lalia’s Market, so everyone can enjoy the cosmetic benefits of this wonderful accessory. As an alternative there are light armour shoulders in the Hobbit presents with the same design. You can try to roll for those on a light armour character, however that particular model has a dark background colour.
All other pieces can be obtained by all classes and used in the wardrobe. So even if your character is a Loremaster, you can still purchase the Guardian items in Galtrev or the Warden leggings in Enedwaith. If you want to know more about how to purchase items that are not for your class, check out my cross class bartering guide.
The leggings can be obtained at Lalia’s too as part of a full cosmetic set: Windsinger.
