Swan Warrior

So here’s my follow-up to the previous post, completing my tour of Nadhin armor sets. This time I decided to feature the heavy armor, although I decided to stick with my LM for the model.

I’ve held off on featuring the chest-piece for a long time – I haven’t even had any toons wear it for long in game. The truth is, I just think it looks a bit clunky and unflattering, but I’ve decided to try my best anyways as a fun(ish) challenge.

Don’t get me wrong, the chest-piece isn’t without its virtues – the details are quite nice, and the swan motif is really cool. The heavy Nadhin gauntlets and shoulders are also very unique pieces. The boots aren’t anything we haven’t seen before – they’re basically a reskinned version of the medium Wildermore boots – so I decided not to feature them.

Also I apologize if my writing is kind of clunky in this post – to be honest I’m not really feeling it. It’s posts like these where I wonder why I have to write at all – why can’t I just post pictures and the list of items I used? I suppose there’s no reason why I have to…it just seems like the precedent.

The warsteed outfit I used is also the same one I featured in the last post, just dyed white instead of indigo. Maybe I’m getting sloppy…maybe I just liked the look too much.

I also used another bird cloak – this time the cloak of the swan, available in the LOTRO store. It was on sale when I got it, but it’s normally available for 295 LPs I believe – which isn’t actually all that hard to amass if you go deeding for a bit.

I actually used the light Nadhin hood here – I almost used it for the first outfit but decided to save it for the second.

I still think head pieces are optional though.

Head: Light Nadhin Hood (white/default)
Shoulders: Heavy Nadhin Shoulders (default)
Body: Heavy Nadhin Armour (white)
Hands: Heavy Nadhin Gauntlets (default)
Feet: Threadbare Boots of the Dunland Healer (white/default)
Back: Swan-Cloak (default)

Head: Halter of Bree (white)
Body: Sea-ward Caparison (white)
Saddle: Saddle of Bree

Ugh. Writing is hard.
