While most of my fellow players and kinmates are grinding their hearts out for Superior Fourth marks, I just cannot find the inspiration to do the same. The idea of having to run 12-man skirmishes every day, and condemn myself to running School and Library every week, is just not attracting me. Of course some day I would like to run the Dragon Raid with my kinmates, but it is just not for me right now. However what does get me excited is more cosmetics! Eventhough my alt characters, vault space and house chests are packed to the limits with cosmetics, I always want to have more of them. This time I set out to get the magnificent Feathered Cloak of the North-men for my loremaster who is questing in Forochel. It requires Naillan Campaign marks to purchase. I tried to get the marks running Ford of Bruinen with her, but they don’t drop there every time and I really really hate Elrohir always aggroing the devouts at the most inconvenient moments. So instead I took my minstrel and ran Thangúlhad and Dannenglor until I had 5 Naillan Campaign marks and got my cloak!
While staying here in Forochel I took advantage of the opportunity to check out the Lossoth way of life, which is wonderfully documented in Kiarane’s latest series “Living in Middle Earth”. I highly recommend you check out all her posts in this series as they highlight amazing and very interesting details that we don’t usually stop to look at when we are handing in our quests.
If you want to know where a certain armour piece or cosmetic comes from, you can look it up in the Lorebook, by typing its name into the search box. You can equip any piece of armour cosmetically through the wardrobe, even armour that is not meant for your class or level.
Chest : Padded Jacket, white dye (light armour smith, Bree)
Shoulders: Westfold Campaign Shoulder Pads, sienna dye (crafted, light)
Hands: Ceremonial Leijona Gloves*, orange dye (crafted, cosmetic or as medium armour)
Legs: Quilted Leggings, white dye (light armour smith, Bree)
Feet: Ceremonial Leijona Boots*, orange dye (crafted, cosmetic or as medium armour)
Back: Feathered Cloak of the North-men, gold dye (skirmish cosmetic)
*Although the tooltip of the Ceremonial Leijona and Ajokoira armour says that you need reputation with the Lossoth to wear the item, you can avoid that requirement by dragging it into your wardrobe and use it from there.
