One of the followers of this blog made a comment wondering if I was going to take a long break from blogging again. Every so often I take breaks from playing Lotro, but never for longer than a month. So in effect I am always around in Middle-earth somewhere, even if only doing festival quests or redecorating my house. I am making new outfits all the time using quest rewards or festival cosmetics, but truth be told I am usually too lazy to go through the motions of taking screenshots and posting them to my blog. I guess I needed a little nudge so I decided to take some time today and get some screenshots published of one of my current outfits.
I absolutely adore rugged and worn looking outfits. I think they are my absolute favorites and “realistic” outfits are what I most use for my questing characters. I have all the fancy expansion cosmetics but I really never use them. I much rather find something a little less sumptuous. So here’s my elf huntress sporting something my loremaster picked up somewhere in Mordor. Sharing it with you just for the fun of making a new blog post to break the silence.
Head: Traveller’s Hood, Lórien gold dye (Lotro store)
Chest: Well-preserved Waistcoat of Adambel, Lórien gold dye (reward chapter 11.5)
Hands: Far-arrow’s Gauntlets, Lórien gold dye (skirmish camp classic)
Feet: Elegant Riding Boots, Lórien gold dye (Myrtle Mint Bree, cosmetics vendor)
Back: Fine Quiver (Tailoring recipe)
Thank you! 😄 I don’t know why, maybe it is a matter of right shots, but I think that even if you wear tattered clothes, they would look wonderful on this blog 😉
Thank you Soban for poking me!
My pleasure 😉
good on the friend for the poke, because this is a very lovely (ruggedly lovely :D) outfit! and lorien gold is such an endearing shade, it can make for unexpected results between yellow and green(ish)
My Lotro friends are awesome and you are one of the special ones dear Gloredh. Im always glad to see your updates!
Came back to the game this month, after a couple of years away, and I was so glad to see you are stilll making posts! I used many of your outfits on all of my alts for years, you are great at this. Now I will use this one for a hunter in Gondor.
Oh, and the tattered and worn ones are also my favourite. 🙂
Aww thank you so much and welcome back to Lotro and to my blog! Middle-earth continues to be an inspiration. Happy hunting!

You just gave me a reason to push on with the Black Book of Mordor quests.
It was hard for me too, I don’t like Mordor at all, but there are a few nice rewards that make it worth it.
