Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby…
I’m not sure exactly what she might have heard about in that lullaby, but I know for a fact it’s not all smiles and roses out there. But who can stop a curious hobbit who’s determined to go on an adventure beyond the borders of the Shire?
It can start out as simple as talking to a chicken on farmer Sandson’s farm. You may learn a thing or two about wolves, threats and other troublesome situations, and before you know it, you’re off on a true and very dangerous adventure tiptoeing all over Eriador, talking to animals and on your way to Rivendell disguised as a chicken!
The “chicken quests” are something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but never gave myself time to do it. There was always something more important like levelling or doing instances. Now that I am levelling my fourth character to level-cap I decided it was time to take a pause and finally do the chicken-run, especially since this is a hobbit and she should be the one to get that cloak! So off I went, some journeys were long, but it was fun!
There is a pretty good guide on the Lorebook, but if you know the roads, you can pretty much figure out everything yourself and don’t need any guidance. It takes a few hours to complete all the runs but if you finish them all, there is a wonderful cloak waiting as a reward!
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: Shabby Cap, sienna dye (reward from Yule Festival quest Support the Poor)
Chest: Long-sleeved Summer Dress, Rivendell green dye (Summer Festival, cosmetic)
Shoulders: Shoulders of the Seven Stars, sienna dye (skirmish camp, also available as cosmetic)
Back: Cloak of the Cluck, cannot be dyed (reward for doing all Flying the Coop quests)
so cute! I’ve attempted to get the cloak once, about a year ago, because I simply adore it – but I died so many times just before the destination that I gave up 😦 I’ll have to try again 🙂
I could not love that cloak more. And that first screenshot, fantastic. Love it!
Awww, the shot with the shrew and the rainbow… perfect! 😀
i need to get that clock i have a rabbit one and now i need to get that one also i have heard some things about the clock being able to turn you into a chicken is that true
Actually it’s the other way around. By turning into a chicken you get that cloak 😉
I love that cloak! My friend Bronwen and I got it awhile back, but I still haven’t created an outfit for it. I agree it is best worn by hobbits. Might have to cook something up for my hobbit, Rosary, to wear with it. 🙂
Your photos, the timely action shots, the lighting, rainbows, shrews….
You are truly a work of art.
Thank you for your kind compliment! Lotro itself is so beautifully made, that some places and structures could be called art in itself. The whole game is very “artistic” and an inspiration to do something beautiful with it.
