The Warden spring fashion catalogue

I splurged on myself today and purchased, for the first time, Turbine Points in LOTRO.  Hey, it’s both my graduation and birthday (well, close enough), so why not?  Basically, I just wanted to get my hands on a few cosmetic niceties I’ve had my eye on, and as a result I started to fashion a few new outfits for my baby Warden.

I haven’t really played my Warden much, but she’s going to be my quest completionist character, and I expect that once I finish getting my LM and Captain through Enedwaith she’ll get a lot more attention this summer.  So I’ve been sending her all sorts of goodies for the upcoming trek, and today she has three new outfits.  This one is by far and away my favorite:

Yes, I caved in and got her that pricey premium Steed of Night that’s in the store… hey, it’s on sale this weekend, and I’m splurging.  Give me a break 🙂

So the outfit!  I’m quite pleased with how this turned out.  I don’t usually use hauberks, but I wanted to give her a more military look so I tried to work around it.  It’s actually a simple outfit — the Hauberk of Glory, the Ravens mask/cloak, and brushed leather boots — all dyed red.  I don’t think enough players really play around with dyes, but they can change outfits dramatically.  I’ve almost never seen the raven’s mask dyed anything other than its standard black, and this gives it so much more personality.  She looks ready for war!

    I only use hauberks on my hobbit. I don’t like most of the other stuff on her. That outfit looks really cool especially on the horse. But… why does she wear boots? 😉

    I love playing with colours. My hobbit looks smashing in rose! 🙂

    That outfit does really nicely! I used the Raven mask/cloak combination on my Captain, but died blue and gold and paired with the Cavalry Hauberk. He was an “of Rohan” human, so it seemed appropriate.

    While I haven’t bought any horses for lack of money, you won’t see me criticizing you for it. The horse goes very well with her outfit! I badly wish I could have afforded the Minas Ithil horse for my Captain.

    Weirdest color combo I currently have and like, on the subject of playing with dyes, is my Loremaster. He’s currently wearing the sun hat and anniversary robe, both dyed orange. I thought it would be hideous but it’s actually really nice.
