Cosmetic Lotro

A light in dark places



This second outfit for Hymne came together after Update 9, as a result of the Barad Guldur armor becoming available at the Skirmish camp. I don’t know of many serious outfitters who are not delighted with these additions, because many pieces of these level 65 armor sets are must-haves, or at least desirable items. One of those must-haves are the level 65 Loremaster’s shoulders. These are so unique and beautiful that they are a wonderful addition to any wardrobe, and can be worn with dresses, armor and robes alike. For this outfit I chose a classic Mirkwood look with crafted pieces, and only those shoulders as a finishing touch, and no cloak as to make it stand out more.



Except for the shoulders, the entire ensemble is made with crafted items. However these are crafted with Mirkwood recipes so you need a Tailor with Friend standing in Mirkwood to craft them. The recipes can be bought in Ost Galadh, and once learned are not forgotten again. At level 65 this armor set was very common, but these days the items are rare. I still like them for their natural look and leather-like base color and they are an excellent match to any other item from the Barad Guldur sets that you may want to combine with.



Head: Tawarwaith Helmet, ranger green dye (crafted T6 Mirkwood recipe, light armour)
Chest: Golden Host Coat, ranger green dye (crafted T6 Mirkwood recipe, medium armour)
Shoulders: Lore-keeper’s Shoulders, rust dye (skirmish camp Classic vendor, level 65 Barad Guldur set)
Legs: Golden Host Leggings, ranger green dye (crafted T6 Mirkwood recipe, medium armour)
Hands: Golden Host Gloves, ranger green dye (crafted T6 Mirkwood recipe, medium armour)
Feet: Tawarwaith Shoes, ranger green dye (crafted T6 Mirkwood recipe, light armour)


  1. Both great outfits Hymne! On the one with the feathered hat, the green tassel on the cloak is the just the perfect touch! And on this one, the shoulders go amazingly well with these various crafted pieces. Gorgeous dramatic background for your screenshots, too. You’re so right about the shoulders being a must-have — I jumped all over these at the first opportunity! 😛 In fact I have an outfit scheduled for next Wednesday that uses them as well.

    Must get those shoulders! How did I not know about these?

    Lovely outfit–I wear the Golden Host set all the time, so it’s great to see some options for mixing it up.
