Tolkien created a number of different alphabets to write his languages – he modelled Cirth on Anglo-Saxon and Norse Runes. Its function in his stories is for inscriptions in wood and stone, just as Runes were used in the real world.
There may be a lot of controversy about the existence of the Runekeeper in Lotro, but I happen to love the class. Unfortunately I made my elf too skinny when I created her, and usually have to find some bulkier clothes to fill her out. This robe is perfect for her. On top of that, it is a really nice robe for a runekeeper as it has a tiny satchel attached to the back.
I finally found the head piece that belongs to the Cel-crus set! I used it here as a hood to complement this robe. The hood did cause some bug in my dressing room, garbling up the colours of my cloaks and presenting itself with the wrong graphics, which I have reported. However, contrary to the chest piece, this hood dyes normally and can be used on all characters as far as I can tell.
Tip 1: did you know that you can dye all your rune satchels? Except the ones from the Lotro store (those remain turquoise), so don’t buy those!
Tip 2: did you know that you can equip ANY kind of rune satchel cosmetically through the wardrobe? Even non-identified legendary ones, the level doesn’t matter!
Tip 3: did you know that the very first legendary rune satchel that you receive is cosmically invisible? As long as you keep it, you can have a rune-keeper without a satchel!
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.
