Lord of Streams

So, here it is. An outfit befitting the Lord of Streams. This was the outfit I devised following my fisherman’s outfit – Gone Fishin’ – and is arguably more befitting an Elvish lord. It actually took quite a while to fully come together, as I could never seem to get the shoes right. Only when Turbine released cosmetic versions of the Rift of Nûrz Ghâshu armour sets was I finally able to find blue boots!


As with the fisherman’s outfit, the patterns on this robe’s sleeves accentuate simple gloves. In fact, a lot of this outfit works because of these fortuitous patterns and highlights. Adding dye to the boots, for example, only affects highlights around the edges of the turned down parts and remain predominantly darker blue, (incidentally a good match for navy dyes). If you lighten this dyeable area it matches well with the lighter highlights on the sleeves, shoulders and the sides of the cloak pattern. Moreover, who needs shoulder garments when the patterns on this robe are so beautiful?


Head: Turquoise Summer Circlet
Chest: Short Ranger’s Robe (Sea Blue Dye)
Gloves: Cloth Gloves (Navy Dye)
Shoes: Ceremonial Rift-Defender’s Boots (Sea Blue Dye)
Back: Cloak of the Silver Star (Navy Dye)

Below is the preliminary outfit I mentioned in another post for a Lord of Streams. It uses a lot of the pieces in the fisherman’s outfit, so can be recycled with only a few tweaks and a different shade of dye for an entirely new and much grander look.  Sea Blue Dye has been added to the hauberk, gloves and cloak.
