If you’re looking for those ideal LOTRO Back Cosmetics but don’t know where to look, then here’s a starting place for you. Here are all the cloaks, backpacks and other items that go into your back gear slot. Many of them can be viewed as individual items, for more details or larger images. And I think I’ve set it up such that whenever I add new items into my database, this and other library pages automatically reflect those changes. Alright, let’s look at those back cosmetics shall we?
What Kinds of Cosmetics Are Here?
While most of the history of LOTRO Event cosmetics involves cloaks, they are not the only clothing items you can pick up. Other types are: Quivers, Backpacks, Cosmetic Shield and…Gift Boxes. Here, I’ll let the pictures explain!
What’s Not Here?
I have yet to enter all the items I own from Yule or Spring Festival, but in terms of events, many of the rest are below. For those two events, I’ve provided image galleries in place of click-through products. I aim to have caught up on the data entry to list the individual items before the time they next run. That means Yule Fest is my next stopping-off point. Also, I have not extended this tool to cosmetics from non-event sources…yet.
Such-and-such Event Is Not Listed!
More “minor” events do not have their own tab. By that I mean either events that are rarely run (such as Ill Omens) or where the cosmetics almost never change (such as Buried Treasure). However their items are on this page, if you see the “All” tab.
As with the head cosmetics, I’ve organised the outfit items here by festival/event, but also included a “Style” tab or section. This has the key groupings in it.
Where I have managed it, I have included both the Hooded and Unhooded variations on the same listing. Just bear in mind that not all cloaks have both variations. It looks like, over the last 2 years, my cloak categorisation has been messy! I’ll tidy that bit soon enough.
Back Item Style
Here are some of the primary groups of LOTRO back cosmetics! Go wild.
You’ll notice here that a shield is in the backpacks group. That’s because, for whatever reason, LOTRO include the shield attached to a backpack. Maybe it’s some sort of “spare gear pack”. Unlike the Shield of Eldar Autumn, which is a cosmetic shield for Guardians and Wardens, the Pack of Anórien Autumn cannot be equipped.I’d be happy for LOTRO to let Guardians stow their shield on their backs to be honest. But this is a good middle-ground, albeit a tag ungainly in combat!
Apologies for the duplicates in this section. At the start of making my plugin for LOTRO Cosmetics, I stupidly split hooded and unhooded, meaning some have ended up in both. I’ll fix this issue as soon as feasible. Thanks!
The Anniversary has, by far, the oddest collection of back cosmetics. Not only do you have cloaks, but you can also carry a bag of fireworks…but you can dress yourself up as a present. Add one of the Fall Festival cosmetics to make you look like a beaver or a rabbit, and you’re a new creature!
I have phases with back cosmetics. Sometimes I like having a cloak on and sometimes I prefer to be free of hinderances. The only characters I’ve ever committed to using a hooded cloak have been Hobbits or Dwarves! So, generally, I’m not a hooded cloak person! Thankfully, there is a wide and… eclectic range available from festivals throughout the LOTRO Events Calendar. However you choose the clothe your characters, I hope this library of LOTRO Back Cosmetics was useful. Enjoy playing in Middle-Earth!
