Gwírist

“Your efforts against Mirkwood’s spiders have rendered you an invaluable ally to the Elves of Mirkwood and Lórien.” – description for the deed spider slayer (advanced) in Mirkwood. It also gives the title Gwírist which is the theme of this outfit. “Gwir” means weaver/spindle in sindarin and “ist” knowledge, so I assume the meaning of the title is something like knowledgeable about spiders, as weaver in this case is referred to them. I really wanted to use the bridal veil in some other way that with pretty dresses and generally pretty outfits. What about a gossamer cloak? With all the spiderwebs covering the trees in Mirkwood the elves could use some to their benefit. We have a gossamer dress already and gossamer thread is an actual crafting material woven from spider silk. The pattern of the bridal veil lends itself well to the image I had in mind, add a chest plate and a shield to accentuate the arachnid theme and the outfit is done. Do you know that now you can run the Erebor raids set at lvl 20 and still get deed completion, unlocking those very nice gear sets at the skirmish camp? I don’t know if it is due to the legendary servers, if it was an intended change or an overlooked bug, but go solo those raids right now and get that armour!

head: Shield-master’s Helm, white dye, barter at the skirmish camp (classic vendor)

chest: Breastplate of the Deathstorm, white dye, barter at the skirmish camp (classic vendor)

  1. Awesome classic outfit, Gloredh! And I’m equally amazed at your use of the Bridal Veil, too! I’d never have thought to use it in a spider-themed context 🙂
