Scarlet Soldier

Busy busy bee🙂 I have been raiding and playing lotro like a mad woman the past two weeks and even have another raid for tonight, times I’ve set aside for my blog and outfitting days were pushed aside when I was asked to group a few times and help some friends out and irl I’ve been having a lot going on so I apologise for the lack of frequent updates, I have the ideas but I’m just enjoying playing the game a little more for the moment I guess.

While putting together my previous outfit I nabbed this wonderful chest piece cheap off the Auction House and after trying so many leg pieces to go with it I had planned to do a black and gold outfit, but the legs worked so much better with Crimson and it all started to fall into place. I believe the chest piece is a drop from an Orc Abomination (level 70). I finally got a male character through the starting area and due to his level his screenshots will have limited areas, but I thought some crumbling ruins gave him a gladiator feeling, don’t you agree?

The gloves I picked up via a world drop a good +6months ago while levelling my Guardian and have never seen the cosmetics of them before, so if anybody knows please feel to let me know in the comments, and I mostly just wanted to show them off rather than expect anybody to grind for the drop (they dropped while I was hunting humanoids outside Helegrod for pages) so any gold and red gloves will do, like a lot of the Lothlorien/mirkwood style ones or crafted officers gauntlets will also work.

The point I think I’m getting at is that a lot of outfits I see on these cosmetics blogs I adore and if I wan’t to look the same there’s still always a couple things I change, and it’s the inspiration of only one or two pieces I use to get the same effect with the cosmetics pieces I DO have access to. Whether you are level 5 like my Warden here or 75 via the Auction Hall and the fantastic Wardrobe system you can still achieve the look you want regardless of level, but it still requires a bit of luck and coin in some cases!

  1. What a cool outfit. You know, that is one of my favourite breastplates, I think it’s really one of the nicest ones in game, and you don’t see it very often at all!

    I totally know what you mean about play time vs. outfitting time. Little did I know when I started my blog how much time it requires to go from basic idea to completed outfit to screenshots to finished post! Good thing it’s so much fun!😀

  3. Great gladiator! You can find the chestpiece at the Heavy Armour Skirmish Barter as well. I believe it’s some 70-ish piece, no idea about he Marks cost though.

    I like the way you incorporated the helmet into this one. Really looking forward to some more outfits from you!
