I often get requests for outfits that a low level character or new player could wear. Outfits that someone could wear even though they don’t have access to most of the cool looking armour options Lotro has to offer. My hope with this guide is that I can help take the frustration out of creating an outfit for the new player and encourage you to find a unique and stylish look that fits your character perfectly.
- Part 1 of this guide will be an inventory of pieces a character between the levels of 1-20 will most likely have access to.
- Part 2 of this guide will be several outfit options I’ve put together using the items I listed.
Part 1: Inventory
Part 2: Outfits
Ranger of the Forest Outfit
Winter White Outfit
Twilight Walker Outfit
Each character begins the game with a starter outfit unique to their class.
Outfitters are special vendor NPCs scattered across Middle Earth who sell cosmetic items. They all sell many of the same items, however each one sells a few unique items as well.
Sold by All Outfitters
Sold by Race of Man Outfitters (Bree and Trestlebridge)
Dot Leafbottom is in the Weapons and Armour Shop across from the Bree Town Hall.
Percy Chesham across from the Task Board.

Buttercup Grubb in the Mitchel Delving Vendor Hall next to the Auction House.
Ernald Boffin inside the Golden Perch.
Thorin’s Hall Outfitter
Boltr inside Thorin’s Hall
Hambrennil up the stairs across from the stables.
Hatt inside Othricar, a Dwarven settlement in the North Downs.
Hammadelen at the market of Rivendell.
Armour merchants can be found in Cities and Outposts throughout Middle Earth. Pictured below are a few of the items you can find for purchase on an Armour Smith.
Festivals come around every few months in celebration of the changing seasons. There is dancing, drinking, game playing and of course the opportunity to pick up some really great cosmetic pieces. Pictured below are just a few of the cosmetic items you can collect at a festival.
Another option for cosmetic items at any level is the Lotro Store. The currency used in the Lotro Store is Turbine points which can be purchased with real life money or earned in game by completing deeds. I’ve pictured below just a few of the items that can be bought in the Lotro Store.
While adventuring in Middle Earth there are a few more resources available to you that you should be on the look out for.
Low Level Quest rewards
When ever you turn in a quest be sure to try on all the quest rewards in the dressing room. You never know when you will find an item you could use in your outfit.
Low Level World Drops
When you are out killing things remember to always try on the loot you pick up in your dressing room. There are some handsome items out there perfect for outfitting.
Low Level Crafted items
The Tailoring and Metalsmith skills especially have nice pieces you can craft for your outfits.
Men of Bree is probably the first reputation faction you can achieve Kindred standing with. This can be done before you reach level 20. Tully Hopwood inside the Hunter’s Lodge in Bree is the NPC you will want to talk to once you have achieved the reputation. She will have a few nice cosmetic pieces to help your outfit along.
By completing the Great-Barrow Instance cluster (level 20s), You will earn medallions and marks which can be used to purchase the Great-Barrow armour sets at any “Classics” vendor at Skirmish camps.
When you pre-order an expansion it will come with exclusive cosmetic rewards. At first it may seem like they are not very rare because everyone is wearing them but as time goes by these items will become very rare and unique. A treasure for any outfit collector’s wardrobe.
Each day new items are placed on the Auction House for purchase. You never know when the perfect piece for your outfit will appear so be checking often.

Fancy snow cloak was a past Yule piece, and moved to the store in 2010. It has been in the lottery occasionally however.
Thank you 🙂 I will update that
Ooo I love that Ranger outfit. Very rugged!
That ranger outfit looks amazing! I’m going to have to copy that 🙂
Great guide. 🙂 The outfits look great.
The fancy snow cloak was available at last year’s Yule Fest, I got one there. I’m not sure if it’s now a retiree for this year though.
I thought I saw it also. Thank you for confirming that 🙂
Unfortunately the Fancy Yule Cloak was not available from the Festival in December 2011. It was offered through the Lotro Store only as a store exclusive. You may have gotten it a year earlier 🙂
Thanks Hymne 🙂
great post idea! i also get many requests for low level outfit and find myself quite chained by it, although i shouldn’t be – there are so many pretty low level items even outside the store 🙂
Glad to see someone do all the fancy leg work so that I can put flashy pants on all my characters, all low level as yet. I have in my minds eye a look which I have yet to spend time and energy on. I will be using your guide to help out when I do sit down and start designing.
are there any low level rohirim outfiys?
