Lore of darkness


It is known that Maney has been an apprentice of an Istari. He never spoke of his mentor, nor revealed details of his training. People, usually amazed by lore-masters' spells and tricks, didn't like him - they suspected him of being involved with dark magic and fell spirits. Maney himself never expressed his true nature - he has spent a lot of time alone, only in his raven's company. Now, when dark clouds are gathering above the Gap of Rohan and darkness emerges from Orthanc, he set off on the road. No-one knows what his true intentions are. Who is his master? Is he going to assist Saruman with his evil deeds, or has he been summoned by Mithrandir? We will find out soon. 

Note: Unfortunately I forgot to write down the names of the quests rewarding items used in this outfit, and they are not yet available on web. I will try to specify particular quests as soon as possible - until then, I can only promise that gathering all these items doesn't take longer than 2-3 hours questing in Dunland.
Other news - Hood of Night now dyes beautifully! :) And the robe made me a little less sad about change of Robe of Viisaus. Just a little.

Update 29/09: Per reader's request, I'm adding the same outfit's screenshot on an elven model. Sorry for daylight screenshot which spoils the gothic atmosphere :)

Chest: Tattered Robe of the Dunland Sage, black dye (Dunland quest)
Head: Hood of Night, black dye (Halls of Night cosmetic)
Shoulders: Hill-man's Cracked Leather Shoulder-guards, black dye (Dunland quest)
Hands: Hyrde-folme, black dye (Dunland epic quest)
Feet: Rusted Boots of the Dunland Berserker, black dye (Dunland quest)
Back: Cloak of the Raven, black dye (fall festival)


  1. That robe looks terribly cool on a man! Almost goth! :)
    I like the dye change to the Hood of Night (and Deathshroud), now we have a second good Ranger hood to put to use.

  2. They fixed the Hood of Night? SWEET! This is such great news.

    Amazing outfit. He does look very dark, in a very cool way :)

  3. I don't usually like robes for my male chars but this one is an exception. Nice outfit.

    Does this robe look correct on male elves though? I looked at in the dressing room and it seemed to be too big and tilted at an angle.

  4. chamal, added a screenshot of an elf above :) i think it looks great on him as well

  5. Thanks Freyjuska. I'll give the robe another try.

  6. ok, this looks absolutly awsome, any idea if it is possible to achive a smilar look for thoser of us who have not got high end characters tho?

  7. robe of viisaus used to be a lot similar to this robe, and still is even though it's been changed. it's obtainable at level ~45 or from lotro stores. you can see screenshots of both old and new versions here
