I wasn’t going to title this post “Revenge of the Ninja”, but that kind of came to mind when I created this outfit. Freyjuska created a wonderful Wisdom Seeker with these same new light armour pieces, well I thought these pieces can dress a sinister assassin just as well! I don’t know if Turbine put a hotfix on this, or if I just have a different item than Frey has, but I was able to dye my chest piece without problems. Strange things are happening to our outfits lately… designs get swapped, changed or lost (forever?), armour becomes unbarterable, items go from undyeable to dyeable without any notice. I feel a bit at a loss with all these changes, especially since Turbine doesn’t keep us up to date with information. Are all these changes working as intended or bugged as unintended? We may never find out…
This outfit can be obtained by any level 72+ player**. All the pieces can be found on the Auction House as they drop from the new instances. The head piece and boots are cosmetic rewards from Volume III, Book 5.
**Disclaimer: for as long as Turbine doesn’t swap the appearances, drops, conditions, levels, storylines or anything else that might keep us from looking the way we want to look in Lotro.
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.
