Wardens in LOTRO are a medium-armour class, balancing defences with maneoverability. However when you’re role-playing, sometimes you just want to feel a bit more protected from your foes! And, although I don’t know how it fares in group content, Wardens have a tanking trait line – and is the line that I play. So here is a Hobbit Warden outfit with a heavy armour look. This one is made up of a pieces from various locations and sources and is roughly a black-and-green look too. Although it’s Lamuna here doing the shots, I have given a note below about boots if you want to make this for a Dwarf or one of the Big Folk.
So, below you’ll see I’ve actually given a few options. This is simply due to the fact that I include items that I already have in stock, regardless of where I acquired them. To make it feasible for as many players as possible, I’ve tried to provide alternatives for either higher-level content or where I have used LOTRO Points/Mithril Coins to acquire items.
Jacket of the Hytbold Blade This style of breastplate is found throughout Rohan, either as quest rewards, or bartering. Different regions of Rohan have their own emblems, so you can find one to suit your design.
Thanks to LOTRO’s Wardrobe feature, applying heavy-armour cosmetically is really easy. While I’ve done my best to provide some items available either from lower levels, or alternative places (such as the Skirmish Camp), it’s not always possible. But maybe this Hobbit Warden outfit can be a springboard for your own unique creation! Do tag me into any social media posts if you do!
