North Downs green and red

Although she usually stays in Esteldin practicing her woodcrafting, sometimes an elf’s gotta get out and see the sky. 1 Silbern green and red (front) - Copy1 Silbern green and red (back)1 Silbern green and red (side)1 Silbern green and red (boots)

One of my very favorite outfits I ever cobbled together, and none of it is high level gear. It’s never left her cosmetic panel!

After many, many attempts and many, many green beers...

After many, many attempts and many, many green beers…

Dammit, Ada! Hurry up, the pee dance is not what I had in mind!

Sobering up for her dance lesson, but all that beer is causing different problems now! 

Angmar is hard to look at.

This post is out of order for my leveling, chronologically it should go somewhere between the Misty Mountains and Eregion, but what they hey. I’m going to have to come back here soonish anyway so I can run Urugarth and get the last of my legendary quest items.

It wasn’t really intentional that I matched the zone, but it worked out anyway. 🙂

I haven’t spent any real time here, just the bare minimum needed for epic quests and legendary trait items. Why not, you ask? Because it is uuuggly! So grim, in fact, that my lovely, soft Misty Mountains armour looked jarringly out of place here and I had to quick cobble together something that would work. I just took what was already in my wardrobe, changed the dye on the shoulders and gloves and BAM. Ready to march.

Snow and Stone for the Misty Mountains

The Cloak of Winter Nights is one of my favorites in the game, and I couldn’t wait to create an outfit around it. Especially after reading this post by Hymne from Lotro Cosmetics; I wanted to show other ways to use this fantastic piece. This has ended up being one of my very favorite outfits, allowing her to remain a formidable warrior while softening out her edges.

Taking a break to catch snowflakes on my tongue.

The Misty Mountains are such a gorgeous, soft-focus zone, for the first time I felt the desire to be in harmony with my surroundings instead of contrasting with them. Maybe it’s because I grew up snuggled against the Rocky Mountains, but this zone feels so wonderfully cozy to me. When the clouds lower into the valleys you can practically hear the still-quiet hush of snow falling.

When combat dictates that a cloak is no longer practical, she removes it and reveals the Southern Helmet Saeradan gave her so long ago on the green fields of Bree-land. The fur ear-and-neck covering of the helmet goes so perfectly with the Snow-dusted Travelling gloves, it’s like they were made for each other.

Making friends

I visited the Misty Mountains as my stopgap between Evendim and Forochel, but I didn’t take any good outfitting screenshots! So unfortunately this post is a bit out of order for my leveling. C’est la vie. 🙂
