The descendants of Númenor, the Dunedain, the Rangers, had longer life spans than normal men, and were able to administer healing aid to those afflicted with injuries and ailments. The Rangers were grim in life, appearance, and dress, choosing to wear rusty green and brown. They used a variety of weapons but were especially skilled with the bow.
For this outfit I used a minstrel chest piece, which reflects the healing skills of the Dunadain. The Serpent is the universal symbol for healing and as I see it, worms and dragons are related to that. I matched this to the ranger items and one of those elusive “Cloaks of Mystery” that you can buy at the Cosmetics vendor in a box. When you receive your Mystery item (cloak or hauberk) it is plain yellow. It is only upon dyeing the item (or previewing it in the dressing room with a dye colour) that a pattern reveals itself. Crell figured out that there are 20 different patterns, for each of the three armour types. These 20 patterns are (loosely described): Diamond Invert, Diamond Mid, Diamond Crossed, Vertical Stripe, Horizontal Stripe, )(, Mug, X, Box 4, Sword, O, Helm, Axe, Box 8, Golf, Torch, Pipes, Star, Anvil, Bow. It seems to me that chances to get a matching pattern on both cloak and hauberk are a little slim.
The way the bright yellow default dye takes on the colours is a bit odd. None of the available dye colours cover the yellow completely as they all remain somewhat translucent. You can achieve some very cool and rare colours though! On this cloak I used burgundy dye, which looks like sienna when applied. I think this pattern matches nicely to the chest piece. The Leather Cloak is my favorite so far.
