I don’t often do a lot of outfits with helmets, but sometimes the helmet is the whole inspiration for the outfit. This one, put together by my friend Karvett, happened because he got the helmet as a reward when we were doing the Stoneheight instance over the weekend. While the Avengers may not necessarily be lore-appropriate, it’s certainly entertaining to see a Middle-earth version of a superhero, which this guy clearly is!
Incidentally, a lot of people tend to overlook the equipment that drops from scaling instances, but starting from level 50 there are some pretty good stats on those rewards. Of course, people who are leveling fairly quickly won’t always come up with a full set, but it’s definitely what I use for characters who level slower, especially the ones who primarily play with others.
