“But in the end it’s only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass.”
The Mirk-eaves, the landing right after Lothlórien, is a dark place indeed, and as you proceed further into Mirkwood, it only gets darker. It is a relief that after the destruction of the Ring, when we leave Mordor, we get to help set things right and heal the forest from the shadows. Nevertheless even the darker side of early Mirkwood has a beauty and a mystery in its own right. A good place for my runekeeper to help out the Malledhrim and show off another elvish outfit.
There is only one opportunity to obtain this robe in the entire game. It is a heavy armour quest reward from the level 74 quest “Answering the Summons” from Wynstan and/or “Banishing the Dishonoured” from Bagmund in Rushgore, Great River region. If you miss it, you cannot get it any other way as far as I know. It used to be the appearance of the early pvmp champion armour, but it is no longer available from the Ettenmoors barter. So be careful when you select your reward for that quest. The light armour quest reward also has a unique appearance, but for cosmetic use, this robe is the best choice in my opinion.
I found the golden forest defender cosmetics to be a good match for the robe. I especially like the hooded mask.
