Recent changes by Turbine have made cross class dressing nearly impossible. I say nearly because this week Dev and I along with a very patient Kinmate (Draakon, our Dwarven Hunter friend) accomplished the improbable task of getting a low level (11) Burglar to Enedwaith to barter for the Burglar OD Hood.
This is a highly frustrating and difficult task to accomplish. Let me list the reasons….
- Stables, Hunter ports, milestones, summoning horns and the like are all level restricted.
- If you die in an area well above your level you will be returned to your home location not to the nearest graveyard. This includes having someone resurrect you.
- Aggro range is the entire zone! lol Literally mobs who normally only threaten to attack will run at a lower level from a great distance away.
One advantage we had on our side was a Writ of Passage. (We finally found a good use for those Writs of Passage that all characters start out with) Using this item will remove all stable restrictions for known stable locations. So when our newbie Burglar died (which he did A LOT) he was able to take a horse back to his last discovered stable.
The hood was the final piece I needed for this outfit. This is my new raiding outfit. I wanted to look epic but still keep the Hunter/Ranger look. I used a quiver vs. a cloak since in a raid you are often asked to remove your cloaks due to lag issues.
Head: Lesser Secret of the West Helmet, dyed Rivendell Green (Medallion of the North-men Barter)
Shoulders: Shoulder Guards of the Keen-eye, dyed Rivendell Green (Drops in level 75 12-man Eruilan skirmishes)
Chest: Jacket of the Impossible Shot, dyed Rivendell Green (Draigoch Hunter Set)
Hands: Gloves of the Impossible Shot, dyed Rivendell Green (Draigoch Hunter Set)
Legs: Dolen-Saviad, dyed Rivendell Green (Quest:Chapter 8: The Messenger of Isengard)
Feet: Boots of the Impossible Shot, dyed Rivendell Green (Draigoch Hunter Set)
Back: Sturdy Elven Quiver, dyed Rivendell Green (T2 Crafted)
Wow, that is some accomplishment. I’ve done my share of trying to run (or escort others) through high-level zones. The trek sounds crazy to me. But I guess it pays off – the outfit looks great! And I love the sneaky dragon-hunting screenshots.
This is an absolutely fantastic outfit with such an absolutely fantastic background story!! I love it! Sounds worse than a chicken run, but with greater reward! Very nice and very well done for a beautiful raiding outfit. Top notch.
Epic-looking indeed! I’ll second Elinnea in saying that first shot is excellently posed, I love how he’s sizing up the drakes stealthily from behind the tree.
Nice outfit! A kinnie of mine got a lvl 22 grd from Bree to Goblin Town to Galtrev (where he got stared at and /slapped).
wow that is crazy hehe
yeah, watch out for those lvl 75s, we’re evil, will stare at you and /slap you to death if you dont fit in
This is the best raid outfit ever!!! 🙂

Hmmm, mysterious comment…. wonder where that comes from…

What a perfect screenshot of dragon stalking!
this outfit is a bit heavy armor and hunter-style i love it,
im so glad it works with all draig gear sets tho! couldnt bear it if i had to go through all that again
I love the outfit, A little tip the shoulder piece is much easier to gain. If you have a burglar at 58 or above then get the Soft-walkers shoulders and dye them. Looks exactly the same and much easier to get
