In the series of spring concerts, this lady has been seen around the streets of Bree, playing her harp and singing a capella. She uses bright coloured vestments to attract the attention of bystanders and collects any coin that she receives for her performances in her tiny coin purse.
The outfits in this concert series are all theatre costumes, and definitely not suitable to use when going into battle.
In this concert series I try to use cosmetics and items that are accessible by minstrels, and avoid using class exclusive items from other classes. The gown in this outfit is a cosmetic from the Anniversary Festival, that will hopefully be available again in April. Many players on the European servers missed out on these cosmetics, because they avoided the much disliked Bar Brawl quest, and had no access to lotteries last year for some extra tokens. I really hope that things will be different this year.
The ceremonial version of the circlet will also be offered in the Lotro store as of Update 6.
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.
Head: Circlet of the Seven Stars, crimson dye (Skirmish Classic barter, Annuminas light)
Shoulders: Songmaster’s Shoulders, crimson dye (Mirkwood instance reward, minstrel)
Chest: Silken Gown of Golden Splendour, crimson dye (Anniversary Festival, cosmetic)
Feet: Ryscdail, white dye (boa drop from The Foundry T2, light)
Back: Treasure Hunter’s Satchel, sea blue dye (Treasure Hunt reward, cosmetic)
So pretty and dramatic! I’m really enjoying this minstrel series, especially since Minstrel is my main too 🙂
The circlet looks amazing in crimson!
I’m not seeing a lot of Rose here. You will never be a true RockStar until you see the Rose Light. Still, at least you haven’t got a beard, so that’s one blessing.
Wow… the texture on the gown looks so crisp and detailed!
I apologize for Aegthil’s post above on behalf of BBB.
Don’t worry about Aegthil. He can’t help seeing himself through Rose tinted glasses. I admire the grace and patience of the BBB members. You have my sympathies.
*grin*. I must admit that the words “grace” and “patience” are not commonly associated with anybody in BBB 🙂
However, my Fool says he is greatly enjoying your minstrel series, and he wants outfits like them. Of course, he’s not allowed.
You’ve done something spectacular with the pillar-of-salt robe. I am very impressed.
