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

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.
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.
