After finally completing all quests in The Great River region I got my hands on this fabulous and unique chain robe. I have been wearing it without a helm or gloves the past couple of nights raiding atop Orthanc wondering what was missing. As Saruman finally surrendered to my kin for the first time (insert applause here) I was very motivated to create something out of this robe, and obtained the Malledhrim crafted heavy set; which I have been after for a very long time but stupidly enough never just asked for someone to craft it for me until tonight.
I never realised just how wonderful the pieces are in this set, I have been staring at the helm for about 10 minutes now because it’s just sooo so beautiful and compliments the robe perfectly with the chainmail at the back. Gloves were the only issue I came across but I expected this as I read about it from Hymne over at CosmeticLotro, there are bad clipping issues with nearly all gloves and this robe so I went very basic, and dyed them gold in an attempt to help the gold that is on the helm.
I have been tasked with creating an outfit for my kin to all wear also, and I’ve made some good progress so I will most likely be adding my ideas and designs onto this blog sometime in the coming weeks.
For now, happy hunting as always.
