Guest: The Citadel by Argendauss

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."

Guest: Galadhrim Sentry by Cúlinwen

"I had never known anything but the Golden Wood; the lands beyond the edges of Lothlórien were closed to me, just as the borders themselves were closed to any outsider who dared to venture under the eaves of the forest.  The wardens of Lórien were ceaseless in their vigilance, their eyes keen and their hands swift and silent on the drawstrings of their bows. They were the guardians who kept this hidden land safe, who preserved its sacred and changeless nature as if to defy the passing of the ages."
  ~ Cúlinwen Amarath

This outfit is gentle and practical at the same time. You would never spot the sentry before lying on the ground with an arrow pierced through your heart. That is if you would be the enemy of course - elves of the Golden Wood welcome friends and cherish them. However, those who mean harm to the forest are tracked down and driven away, by all means necessary.

Chest: Scout's Weathered Leather Tunic, grey dye (Dunland quest)
Dunland Marcher's Leather Helmet, default dye (Dunland quest)
Gwir-palvais, grey dye (Drop from Isengard instance cluster)
Fingerless Gloves, grey dye (Yule festival)
Threadbare Boots of the Dunland Healer, grey dye (Dunland quest)
Plain Cloak, grey dye (Outfitter vendor)
