I was fiddling with a new outfit for my Lore-master in LOTRO last night and thought, hey, I should bear my fashion sense to the world and show you everything I’ve cooked up for Sype.
The Default Look: I.e. “What Sype would look like if LOTRO didn’t have cosmetic outfits.” Obviously, LOTRO does not excel with default armor unless you like looking like you lost a dare or are pledging a frat.
Outfit #1: This is probably my most favorite outfit — a classy getup that was inspired by the top hat I got from the Yule festival. I tried to find as close to a tux that this game has and ultimately settled on the Ale Association robe and fingerless gloves. It just works together and with my staff I look like a 1800s gentleman who’s out to knock sense into rapscallions.
Outfit #2: The classic Gandalf/wizard. I particularly like the bent hat (which is some lowbie piece of armor) and the sage backpack with the odds and ends sticking out of it. The clothes are dyed gray to look as unassuming as possible.
Outfit #3: The pimp. He’s colorful, rich and dashing, perfect for the nights where I want to stun everyone with style as much as my skills.
Outfit #4: Raggedy Andy. Lots of new Winter-home shabby clothes here, topped off with the Three Wolf Moon cape. It’s silly and ugly and I really, really love it.
Outfit #5: I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK. The well-worn tunic and pants is one of the few outfits in the game that looks like something we’d wear today, so I dyed it blue (to look like jeans), added a rust-colored hat and the black-dyed campaigner’s backpack. Basic, but it feels comfy.
