Robes that can’t make up their minds

As I have remarked before, rolling a Lore-master tends to result in at least one pretty robe every raid cluster. In the case of the Erebor cluster, the Lore-master escapes largely unscathed from the morass of badly-designed exercises in bodily distortion that compose the other classes’ raid sets, presumably because the lore does not permit Elrond to look awful. The Jacket of the Erebor Animal-Friend (which looks suspiciously unlike a jacket) feels like something of a kaleidoscope: even now, I still am not sure if some of the grey bits really are grey and not bluish, if the bands on the sleeves actually match the gloves I used, or if the red on the cloak is the same shade as the robe (it is somewhere in the vicinity of Imperial Red, Wikipedia tells me). Going by the screenshots, I came to the conclusion that the answer really depends on the rather fickle lighting of Dol Guldur and the glowy Lore-master skills, which is an oddly-pleasing effect.

    • Thanks! The cloak is actually a shade of red darker than the robe under normal lighting conditions, but it’s the closest I could get. It’s also why I cheated a bit with the screenshots.

  1. Do you happen to know if it’s possible to buy the Erebor equipment “off-class”?

    That is, if you somehow find a dozen people to do those three raids at at least tier I, level 85 (I believe that’s the requirement for buying the equipment, if I’m reading the LotRO wiki right), such that you can buy the gear at the skirmish vendors . . . can you buy gear for a class other than your own? My Harondorian burglar is kind of stoked about this robe, now that it’s dyeable.
