I finally found some time to start some new content with Update 6 (having been working my butt off the past 4 weeks with a new job) and upon getting stuck into the storyline of the Rohirrim, Fishermen and Elves and their wariness of each other I began to feel my Human Captain never really noticed this until now, having maxed kindred with the Galadhrim I headed to Lothlórien and got Screenshot happy (which is extremely difficult given the glow/aura around everything in Lothlórien). Just out of pure boredom I decided to make a Warden and check out the new changes and found that the Westfold Cloak that came with the Pre-order had changed!
I previously hated this cloak and wished it was white like the rest of the outfit and couldn’t understand why just the cloak was beige and every other Westfold piece was white – including the horse blanket. Happy with this change I immediately added it to my white dress and circlet, added in the shoulders and fell in love. My captain – now looking more like a ranger had a twist to it, standing in Lothlórien admiring the views she tried to gain the respect of the elves of this place and having the best of both worlds could look regal, but also join the Horse Lords in their quest to Rohan. If you already have this cloak in the Wardrobe it may show up the old colour (it did with me) but upon taking it out and putting it back in you can get the new crisp white cosmetic. You can type /reclaim to get all the Pre-order items back if you find you removed the item after putting it in the wardrobe.
I have noticed some fantastic new cosmetics with the first couple of quests I have done by the river in the new area (and noticed it’s a lot of raid/instance gear with changed dye options) which is a happy compromise for those who could not obtain it due to not having the right class or ability to raid, cosmetics for all!
As of next week my work schedule is going to calm down and as I adjust to juggling work and gaming I’m hoping I can find a balance which will not make me neglect my hobby of standing in front of the Lotro wardrobe. Keep checking back!
