Champion of the White City

A while back, I finally got back to playing my main Teriadwyn, and shortly afterward decided that the lifting of the dawnless day merited a new outfit. It’s fairly rare that I do an outfit that’s made entirely of quest reward pieces, but it just sort of came together that way, mostly due to the magnificent cloak that is the reward for finishing Book Four of the Volume Four Epic Story.

I wasn’t quite able to grab a decent full-outfit screenshot, but I’ve included the boots I used for the outfit for the sake of reference, in case anyone’s curious to recreate the look. It’s worth noting that the chest piece is actually light armor, but the white dye gives it a scale-mail sort of look that works for the heavy armor classes, too.

For a champion from Dol Amroth, Teri fits in quite well in Minas Tirith!

Shoulders: Shoulder Guards of the Reclaimed City, white dye (North Ithilien quest reward)
Back: Forceful Cloak of theCitadel Guard Captain (Volume 4 quest reward)
Chest: Ithilien Weave Coat of the Ambusher, white dye (Volume 4 quest reward)
Gloves: Gloves of the White Mountains, white dye (Western Gondor quest reward)
Boots: Rugged Work Boots, walnut brown dye (Beorning starter instance)

Dwarves Must Fight for Dwarves

My Sunday stream this week featured some makeover time with a handful of alts, starting with Axli Shingshing, my dwarven champion. It’s a real challenge to get everything to look just right on the dwarf body type, because the proportions are so much different than on taller characters. When I first spotted this robe, however, it was being worn by a dwarf that I happened to pass by, and I knew I had to add it to my collection of cosmetics.

I love the details on the sleeves and along the front of this chest piece, it’s very reminiscent of Celtic knotwork, and also very dwarven. There are similar details in most places in the game that are or have been home to dwarves.

Of course, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without a matching pair of axes, and there are even axes on his cloak!

Shoulders: Hardened Dwarf-make Iron Shoulder Guards, gold dye (Crafted T2, similar appearances can be found on landscape)
Back: Enduring Cloak of Fleetness, white dye (Scaled Instance drop)
