The Cloak of Winter Nights, another one of the Yule Festival cloaks, is a cloak that I find hard to combine. It’s hard because it has a blend of various pastel colours on the back that form a winter landscape at night. The dyeable area only covers the colour of the night sky, so you cannot change the colours of the rest of the cloak. The best way to find out which part of an item is dyeable, is to use the preview function (press ctrl+left mouseclick) and change the colour in the preview pane. It will show you what the item looks like with the selected dye colour. I am not a big fan of the new Tier 7 crafted chest pieces, as they all have a semi greenish area on chest and/or sleeves that cannot be dyed. However sometimes unpopular items find use in combination with other difficult items, and so I found that this robe’s base colours are a great match to this particular cloak.
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 : Dunlending Campaign Armour, white dye (crafted T7, light)
Shoulders: Padded Mantle of the Dunland Soothsayer, sienna dye (Dunland quest reward, light)
Hands: Dolen Lhaw, sienna dye (Vol.III Bk.4 reward, medium)
Feet: Threadbare Shoes of the Dunland Healer, sienna dye (Dunland quest reward, light)
Back: Cloak of Winter Nights, olive dye (Yule Festival, cosmetic)
Horse: Prized Tundra-Horse (kindred reputation Forochel)
Every time I tried on that Dunlending Robe I thought it looks a bit boxy on female characters, but seeing in here in a winter outfit context, the boxiness works really well — it looks thick and warm. It matches that cloak really well too. I like it!
great outfit around the very difficult cloak, here it looks like matching set piece to the robe 🙂 and i love the horsey too!
