Guardian of the Light – LOTRO Outfit

Guardian of the Light - LOTRO Outfit Idea for GuardiansIt has been some time – okay a very long time since I added a new LOTRO outfit and this, despite having had two ready-made and just needing screenshots and a write-up! This one, Guardian of the Light came to me during the LOTRO Ill Omens Event. I realised you can react to darkness in two opposite ways: Fight it with Light, or join it. Yes, you could try to ignore it, but that’s hardly inspiring. So this outfit represents the Light – and the dark design is on its way.

Guardian Of the Light In-Action

There are a couple of items I’ve borrowed from Wood Elf at Heart but the rest has been designed as a heavy-ish outfit. Also, inline with newer cosmetics content here I will also be showing this outfit on other races and genders[1]By “gender” I mean the option selected when you created the character..

How to Make This Outfit

Almost every item that can be is dyed white in this outfit. Find a colour that suits your character, though.

Shoulders

Shoulders of the Waking Wood

Back

Reveller’s Gilded Cloak

I have not yet found any other item with the same skin as this, which is a real shame)

TL;DR Stand Out with this Guardian Outfit

I’ve found making good-looking Guardian outfits kind of tricky due to the natural bulkiness of heavy armour. By mixing up different armour types and including two purposeful Elven pieces, I think Guardian of the Light is a good balance between form and function. If you end up using this outfit – especially if you use a different dye colour – I’d love to see your creations, so do share them!
