Riders of Rohan - Eastemnet Pre-Order Items

For a while, I've known that I was going to purchase the Riders of Rohan pre-order package. I assumed there would be special mounts and/or cosmetic items, like every previous expansion. What kind of items and how'd they look, I had no idea...until now. To recieve all the cosmetics, you need to buy the Legendary Edition. The Heroic Edition only contains the Hauberk and steed:

Everything cosmetic related:

The Steed of the Eastemnet
An exclusive Rohirrim Mount available immediately with matching War-steed appearance available when Riders of Rohan launches

Armour of the Eastemnet
An exclusive full set of Rohirrim cosmetic armour

6th Inventory Bag
An inventory bag that grants 15 additional storage slots (More space to hold cosmetics!)

For those of you interested in seeing what each package has in terms of the non-cosmetic features and a comparison breakdown, please visit Riders of Rohan pre-order site for details. Make sure to click the Compare Editions button!

 The Steed of the Eastemnet

For a while, I've wanted an armoured mount. Honestly, I've been too lazy to grind out those Orthanc sigils for the Isengard War-Steed. I'd have to say that this mount looks awesome. Riding into combat on the war-steed version when Rohan is active will going to provide an epicness no other mount has been able to deliver! Congrats to the person that designed the barding for this exclusive steed! Sadly, there's only one skin for this steed...unlike Rise of Isengard, you don't have three skins to choose from.

Maybe we can petition Turbine to add weapons to the mount as well!

Springtime Balladeer - Nathrien of Gladden

It's been a while since I've posted here. Life has gotten hectic the past month...between looking for a new job and spending time with family, I haven't had much time to spend on LOTRO with cosmetics. Luckily, the start of the Spring Festival coincided with the revival of my cosmetic ventures. It's not very often you see floral designs in a game like this. Usually, I see players running around Middle-Earth in armor, leathers, and various arrangements of end game gear. When I saw the new festival cosmetics, I could only imagine how perfect my mini, Nathrien, would look displaying them.
