Alfric is ready for war. He has finally made enough money to get a full set of metal armor, and he wears an elegant cloak with a hood. His men are gathering on the shore, ready to set out against the Easterlings attacking Dale.
Alfric spent many years roaming in the lands near Dale and the Lonely Mountain, leading a band of men, elves and dwarves against goblins and orcs who threatened the rebuilt Laketown, and in 3018 he fought against the Easterlings attacking his homeland. Of course a captain and leader of men needs a fancy armor suite, so I looked at different armor sets, both crafted and vendor stuff. I realised there isn’t that much plate armor around, most of it is chain mail or leather. I used to play World of Warcraft, which had lots of awesome plate armor, and somehow an image of my human paladin in full armor was at the back of my mind. Then I levelled my metalsmithing a bit and discovered this, which is the entire Sellsword armor set. Boring maybe, but I just thought it looked awesome, especially dyed white. And the cloak, one of my favorites, is a perfect match, making him look really like a “knight in shining armor”, as the expression goes. ( Of course, knights might not fit into the Tolkien lore, but I still wanted to make one, as I’m a big fan of all things medieval…)Now I should really try to level him a bit, so he could show off this nice set…I still find it quite odd to be lvl 36 and walk around in something that could actually only be worn by someone lvl 50+. Cheers for the wardrobe system:)
Back: Cloak of the West-tower, dye white, skirmish classic vendor
Head, shoulders, chest, hands, legs, feet: Sellsword’s armour, T6 crafted, dye white. I think all the T6 armor sets look more or less the same.
