First up, we have Bayleaf Green, a hobbit of the Fallohides — and a Minstrel, sporting a red and golden hued outfit. The idea for this was to get an outfit that was as bright as a minstrel should be, but still matching the Steed of the Horse-Lords fairly well. For those who are unaware, this steed is exclusive with LotRO: Mithril Edition, which is completely worth buying if you’re able to find it. If anything, it is the cheapest way to purchase 2000tp to date.
The horse is a simple basic horse, only coming with +62% speed and a mere 100 morale, but it sure does look nice, and it makes a nice starting mount for players who are brand new to the game. I used it quite often when I first started.
For this outfit, I needed a chest piece that already had one out of two colors that I needed in order to match the pony when I dyed it. Naturally, I checked all of the outfitters for a suitable garment first. And what do you know? I found one, at Thorin’s Hall. It was a nice olive color, but it was lined with gold and yellow trimming which I knew would look great with red, assuming that the olive-colored parts would dye properly. So, I tested it, and it looked great!
