Cryptic Crook

Finally! This update has taken me weeks 😛 Mostly because it was one of those outfits where I kept changing little things and I think no amount of changing pieces was going to impress me it was a pain, but I settled on the pieces in the end. I also tried Fraps for the screenshots but I had so many problems with file types and images showing up too dark (my PSP program I use to lighten them generally lightens images anyway; so when I save thinking they’re fine, they’re actually not = stress).

When I was levelling my captain and I entered this BEAUFITUL solo instance I knew it would be a long time until I had another character here, and I wanted to capture the moment with screenshots, sparking my idea for a tomb robber outfit. This gave me the perfect opportunity to head to the buried treasure event and grab me a sack of gold, although a little awkward to dye as it doesn’t dye any dark colours >:-[.

The majority of the pieces are Isengard instance drops so it may seem a little strange to then use Radiant Armour for the chest piece but a lot of the Isengard armour has clipping issues, and the chest piece is one of my favourites in any colour and I couldn’t resist it in Crimson.

This outfit was actually just a compilation of all my favourite pieces at the moment, and they all work for an outfit so i’m super happy. I probably should have added some of the new emotes to it as well but I actually don’t have any of them yet! So much to do 😛

This will be my last update for a couple of weeks now as I am visiting family for a while for my Dad’s wedding, as well as starting my new job I want my focus to be on my real life for the moment as you may have read in my previous update post.

Masked Marauder

 

Prior my previous post about trying to find an outfit for the Cloak of Evasion I remade my burglar that day and planned to get the Ceremonial Thrill-Seekers Helm from the Skirmish barterer, which was easy now since the exchange system has been changed and I no longer had to do the Rift skirmish 10 times to get the right campaign marks (woot). While playing around in the Wardrobe I noticed the helm still is pretty brown and can’t be made black, so as usual the search began for black and roguish looking cosmetics which had some dark brown on them and lo and behold the Cloak of Evasion had just that when dyed black (basically it’s not really black when dyed, but matches the helm brilliantly in colour).

There are a few bootie options with this outfit, and I went for the quest reward boots with the dagger in them but any soft leather boots will work here. Also, with recent discoveries about the rooftops of Bree, how could I not take a screenshot up there with my shady hobbit burglar? A great alternate for this outfit is Cosmetic Lotro’s Rooftop Runner

Notes: I’m quite annoyed that lately my screenshots seem to be lacking in quality and having a lot of noise in them, so I’d like to update the screenshots in the last couple posts if I can work out where i’m going wrong, but I think I know why it just means from now on it will take twice as long to get my screenshots but I’ll do it if it means better quality.
