This outfit is inspired by the great golden Mallorn trees of Lothlorien.
Mellyrn are described as similar to birches: their bark was smooth and silver-grey, and the leaves turned golden in autumn. The golden leaves remained on the tree through the winter and fell to cover the ground in the spring, when new leaves sprouted, which were green on top and silver underneath, and golden flowers bloomed on the branches. Frodo Baggins explained that he could feel the life of the tree when he touched a mallorn in Lothlórien.
Lothlorien was the only place where the golden Mallorn tree grew in Middle-earth, brought there from Valinor by Lady Galadriel. Lothlórien became known as the Golden Wood because of them.
Galadriel gave Samwise Gamgee a box of soil containing a single silver mallorn nut. After the War of the Ring, Sam planted the nut in the Shire, in the Party Field where the Party Tree had stood. It was the only mallorn-tree in Middle-earth outside of Lórien. When the tree bloomed in the next summer it was said that all the Shire became golden from the flowers.
These shoulders can be bartered in Mirkwood at the Loremaster trainer for Medallions of Dol Guldur. You will need to have a Loremaster to interact with the trainer but the medallions can be earned pretty easily through running Mirkwood instances.
I don’t see too many people using this chest piece. The main reason I think is because it is from a quest in the Great River which shares the same quest reward as the very popular Ancient Inlaid Breastplate. (same appearance as the old heavy PvMP armour for guardians, captains and champions) I love that heavy metal robe and will definitely take another character through the quest line to pick it up, but I really thought this leather chest piece looked unique. I had to have it.
This outfit works very well with the Prized Malledhrim Horse which can be acquired once you have reached kindred standing with the Malledhrim.
