Having just escaped the Isengard prison, lucky to be alive but hungry and with my clothes in tatters, I don’t have a lot of options but to hang out with the local riff raff until I get back on my feet again. I’ll have to ask the farmers for help and food, and if they refuse to give me anything I might have to force them. Maybe there’s some errands I could run to make a few silvers and get myself a new dagger, as the old one was taken away from me when Saruman threw me into the dungeon.
Volume III, Book 4 of the epic questline is a blast so far. I am really enjoying myself and I think the entire story around Isengard and Saruman is really well done. I loved every bit of it even the menial tasks! I am levelling slowly, partly because I don’t have a lot of time and partly because sometimes I’m just enjoying the scenery. I especially enjoyed the Gravenwood landscape. It’s the best and most realistic forest I have come across so far. Even better than Mirkwood! I know there are lots of people on the forums complaining about the expansion and what it has to offer, but even though I have a few criticisms myself as well, I am truly enjoying the journey and I think that overall the expansion is very well designed.
The shirt and leggings in this outfit are part of a whole cosmetic set, that you receive as rewards over the course of book 4. The set has a shirt, leggings, shoes, gloves and a bandana. (Of note: the shirt has a white hand mark on the back, not shown in these pictures).
Now if only I could get about 100 slots more vault space! I have a hard time keeping all the quest rewards for cosmetic purposes and I really don’t want to delete any of them!
