Guest: The Citadel by Argendauss

Rate:
Argendauss' reputation as a captain of Free People precedes him. His is most renowned for his versatility - his fellows can always rely on his blade, shield and morale-boosting speeches. To stand as a citadel against waves of enemies, he is properly equipped by armour made of steel and gold, which even the most precise blows with a spear cannot pierce.

Argendauss said about this outfit: "The inspiration for the outfit was the Shield of Endless Heroics, a drop from the Erulian Campaign of skirmishes. It has this sky blue coloring to it that was a challenge to match, but I found that the Cloak of the Silver Star and Head-Cage played very well with it. The chest piece I've chosen even has very faint lines tinted light-blue running across the center of it, though those lines look more silvery in the screenshots I'm submitting. For the rest of the outfit, I have silver and gold. I had to do gold because Head-cage is gold even when dyed white. The pieces from OD all have this fantastic metallic gold coloring which I was happy to incorporate into the outfit."

Chest: Breastplate of the Rallying Shout, white dye (Moria level 60 captain purple set; shares appearance with T6 crafted Armour of the Galadhrim)
Legs: Lesser Defender of the West Leggings, white dye (Ost Dunhoth warden level 65 set)
Head: Head-cage, white dye (Drop from Grand Stairs, Igash)
Shoulders: Lesser Cry of the West Shoulder Guards, white dye (Ost Dunhoth captain level 65 set)
Hands: Stoutheart's Gauntlets, white dye (Moria level 60 captain purple set; shares appearance with T6 crafted Gauntlets of the Galadhrim)
Feet: Officer's Boots, white dye (T6 crafted; available as T6 crafted heavy armour under different names)
Back: Cloak of the Silver Star, white dye (Store)
Shield: Shield of Endless Heroics (Drop from Erulian Campaign skirmish raid)

  1. Oh I love that shield so much! I wish we had shield cosmetic slots. Nice combination of the Lorien chest with the West leggings.

  4. Thanks for featuring this, Frey! Nice write up on it, too :)

    I swapped back to Halberd for tanking, and I'm looking to get this shield:

    for raid healing, so I might be seeing less of this outfit :(. Which is sad 'cause I'm particularly proud of how this one turned out. I had to do some formatting of this post and its long url link, because it looked goofy in the comment I deleted.

    Thank you so much for the compliments! The shoulder's are really cool, huh? Its just too bad they clip with bulkier stuff. Full helms are my favorite, and Head-Cage is one of the many good ones.

  5. That's a nice outfit. Shields are so frustrating: you just work out a new armour look and then you get a shield with better stats which ruins it. Yes, if only we had cosmetic shields. The Head Cage looks good here though. I tried it on as a dwarf but it looked flat on top and blockish.

  6. It is nice to see a helmet that actually looks like it covers the throat somewhat.. it's the only issue I see constantly with heavy armour.. and I'm not a big fan of the dunland cosmetic head piece that is based on a chainmail coif sadly...

    Everytime I'm using my guardian I wonder how the mobs don't just shoot her right in the throat :/
