Cosmetic Lotro

Moriquen elf

During the days of the debate over the invitation of the Valar to enter Valinor, the Elves split into two camps: those who desired the Light of Valinor versus Elves who did not wish to leave Middle Earth. The Calaquendi, meaning Light Folk, and the Moriquendi, meaning Dark Folk. Moriquendi had from the beginning a negative sense, implying that these Elves willingly tolerated the shadows that Melkor had put upon Middle-earth. The Moriquendi were regarded as greatly inferior by the Calaquendi as they were considered lost on their wanderings towards Valinor.

In my humble opinion, who is to judge the decision of the Moriquendi? The journey through darkness may be much harder and more painful, but to the eyes of a creature of darkness the Light shines so much brighter at the end of the tunnel.

Fashion Week at Cosmetic Lotro comes with a free black dye, and one dye is the beginning of a really cool outfit! If you haven’t decided on what to wear for Fashion Week, you may want to consider using black dye, as it is classy and looks good on most outfits. With a few exceptions, black dye can be used on almost anything. It is extremely outfit friendly.

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.

Shoulders: Shoulder-guards of the Keen Eye, black dye (level 75 skirmish raid drop, medium)
Chest: Scarred Surcoat of the Pren Gwydh Warrior, black dye (Dunland quest reward, heavy)
Hands: Dirge-Singer’s Bracers, Rivendell green dye (Isengard Draigoch armour, minstrel)
Feet: Boots of the Golden Wood, black dye (crafted Tier 6 -Lothlorien recipe-, medium)
: Cloak of the West-tower, black dye (Annúminas skirmish barter reward – also available as cosmetic)


  1. I love outfits that are based off Tolkien lore and this is a wonderful depiction of a Moriquen elf. I see this surcoat used a lot but you made it really stand out as unique. Excellent outfit 🙂

    Gorgeous outfit, as always, but I wanna say that I agree with you about the Moriquendi. I always wanted to know more about them, but obviously the story of Middle Earth is written from the point of view of the Noldor. It would be interesting to know the story from the point of view of other peoples.

  3. i don’t think Moriquendi has a negative sense in the lore itself. Though certainly many of the Noldor looked down on them. But there is evidence in Tolkien’s other writings that it was never the will of Eru for the Elves to go to Valinor. The Blessed Realm may have heightened their nature to some degree, but it did not necessarily make them better. Celeborn (a Moriquendi) was said to be the wisest of the Elves and Luthien (also Moriquendi) was the most beautiful and powerful of the Elves.
