Flame of Fornost

Eadyth, now bearing the title of the Flame of Fornost, confronts the Wraith of Water Megoriath single-handed. Will her quiver be enough to rid Fornost of the Witch King's legacy?

I'd like to begin by saying that this outfit went through numerous helm changes, and that I guess the reason I went with this one was because the tip looks like an arrow. It used to be a rose-dyed Worn Ranger's Hood, which works too, but at the last minute I felt like using a helm that I normally wouldn't because of how goofy it may look.

The whole idea behind this outfit was "raids" I guess, despite never actually having run any before at the time of this outfit's creation, so the idea to me was something like "12 players killing a dragon" or something. Of course I knew about the Filikul and Watcher raids but I guess I thought maybe level 105 raids were more fantastical (like other MMORPGs would be, I guess), and that's how I went about designing this.

The chest piece is actually from the Ox-clan Merchant Camp, where I hoarded all the pieces I thought looked cool, but for the longest time, because of how naturally dark it was, this piece stayed in the vaults. Dyeing it rose was a good way to get around that, I feel. The rest of the outfit, though, are just skirmish camp barter items (save the helm and quiver of course).

Head: Thick Iron Helm (turquoise);

  1. Just getting back into cosmetic blogging for LOTRO and I saw this entry in my RSS feed. I have to say this is a unique combination of pieces that work well with each other. All those dangerously sharp edges give it a wonderful fierceness. And I must say well done pulling off that color combination too! You normally don't see purple (even though it's rose) and turquoise put together like that.
