When I create an outfit, I cannot do this with a specific goal in mind. Quite often I find myself getting very frustrated when I try to create “a heavy outfit for my hobbit” or “a hunter outfit for my dwarf”. When I try do design something with a particular goal in mind, I always end up with something completely different, so I have learned to take it easy on myself and just allow the process to unfold without wanting to create something specific.
During the process of outfitting, I have to switch characters quite a bit, because my cosmetics and armour pieces are all spread out through their different vaults. While searching for a specific item, I often end up staying on that character continuing the outfit process that I started on another character. However this time I stayed firm to my commitment that I really really wanted to make a male outfit, so I forced myself to remain focused on that goal. Though initially I thought I was going to design something heavy, it turned into a burglar outfit. Not exactly a guy you want to meet while walking around Bree at night.
The leggings in this outfit have two different sides. The back side is grey and undyeable, the front side can be dyed. The gloves look like the Great Barrows medium gloves but are slightly different and heavy armour. The gold on the bracers is a bit brighter and fits nicely with the rest of the golden details. The little coin purse from the Treasure Hunt completes the look.
If you want to know where a certain armour piece or cosmetic comes from, you can look it up on Lotro Wiki, 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.
