Guest inspiration: Haldir by Thoargile


"The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater."
Haldir, in The Two Towers

Haldir's role has been much bigger in the LoTR movie trilogy compared to the books, especially in The Two Towers. His deeds in the Battle of Helm's Deep have inspired Thoargile to create an outfit using Haldir's movie appearance and action figures as models:

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

I was very happy to receive this guest submission, because about a week ago, I was working on the same theme for Eragith, a reader who asked for Haldir themed outfit for his elven hunter. This is outfit I designed for him:

Unfortunately, the "Haldir leggings" (as I dare to call them) are part of Moria heavy classes' set and only champs, captains and guardians can barter for them (as they come from the class trainer). Unfortunately, Eragith doesn't have any of these, so we substituted these leggings with Sellsword's ones and he claimed he will level up a champion just for the sake of getting the "Haldir leggings" :)) [This is no longer true, see important note below.] About a week later, I received Thoargile's amazing submission and now I am so glad Haldir can come to life on this blog!

Thoargile's outfit is even more suitable for an elven hunter than mine, because it features more significant elven elements. My version includes more plate and is much heavier, therefore it's questionable if it allows enough agility so important for a bowmaster.

Important note: Thanks to Thoargile I've found out that the leggings are barterable not only from class trainers in The Twenty-first Hall (who are class restricted), but also in Shadowed Refuge from Heavy armour trader. You can get these "Haldir leggings" for only 3 Medallions of Moria, no matter what class you are!

Thoargile's Haldir outfit consists of:
Chest: Golden Host Coat of Knowledge, crimson dye (T6 crafted)
Legs: Leggings of the Brazen Call, red dye (Moria level 60 captain teal set; also available as champion and guardian set parts with very small differences in looks)
Head: Ceremonial Town-Saver's Helm, crimson dye (Skirmish barter - Rift cosmetics)
Shoulders 1: Aermal, crimson dye (Drop from Barad Gúlaran; also available Elven Steel Shoulder Guards from Rivendell heavy armoursmith)
Shoulders 2: Nestadbellas, default dye (Quest: Volume III, Book 4, Chapter 10: Herdsmen of the Starkmoor)
Hands: Gauntlets of the Swift Arrow, crimson dye (Mirkwood level 65 hunter purple set; also available as T6 crafted August Gloves of the Golden Wood)
Feet: (August) Boots of the Golden Wood, crimson dye (T6 crafted)
Back: Sturdy Elven Quiver, crimson dye (T2 crafted)


  1. That's so weird that you can't cross-class barter for Moria armour. The Isengard armour sets are on class trainers, but you can still interact with any of them for their barter and shop functions, even if you aren't the same class. I just double-checked the Moria class vendors to see if they've been updated to work the same way and sadly, they haven't.

  2. yes, when i was designing the outfit for Eragith, i was almost sure he will be able to barter for the leggings as a hunter. later i doublechecked and found out i haven't been able to speak with any other class trainer in 21st hall except for my own :( such a pity.

  3. Thanks for featuring the outfit, Freyjuska! :) About leggings: I bartered these 2 weeks ago, not from a class trainer in the 21st Hall, but obtained from a Heavy Armor Trader in the Shadowed Refudge.

  4. I've admired Thoargile's outfits in the big cosmetics thread on the forums -- great outfit Thoargile! :)

  5. Wow, stunning outfit here. I admit it never quite filtered through my brain that Haldir's outfit at Helm's Deep had so much crimson/red, probably because all the scenes were so dark. Seeing this really helps bring that to light! Awwesome job!

  6. Thoargile that's such a great news! gotta e-mail Eragith immediately :) and i'm such a noob - i didn't know you can get Moria sets in Shadowed Refuge too :*)

  7. Orc Watch too. And you could have known if you had remembered the info in my post about cross class bartering after update 5.1. I went to Moria to test, not to Enedwaith. :)

  8. yep, i was initially somehow subconsciously sure it's possible to cross-class barter moria sets, that's why i suggested the piece to eragith. but then i went to the only place i knew i could trade these and found out they locked me out :D but it strange to me i didn't think of orc watch too, because that's the place i got most of my moria set bartered some 2 years ago. well, my good and sane days are long gone :D

  9. I suffer from the same. On a positive note, every time I level a character all quests and locations are brand new again! :P

  10. I like this. I tried doing the same on my Champion as she's from Lothlorien. I used the same chestpiece but because I couldn't find the right legs I used the ones that came with the set (that's going to soon change). For the cloak I used the plain one found on vendors, dying it crimson. Very nicely done!

  11. I tried the same thing with my hunter. I was able to barter with the vendor in the Shadowed Refuge for the leggings just fine, but 3 Moria medallions later, I couldn't equip them - even cosmetically. :(
