    You gotta have good timing, I've tested it out before, you can get stuff like that in a screenshot just takes many shots to get one good one, i assume that's what they did in their screenshot.

    Lord Funk and Pontin are quite correct. I'll take sometimes hundreds of screenshots for each outfit I want to showcase. You get a LOT of bad shots (weird clothing clipping issues, terrible timing, same exact pose, etc) but usually there is enough gold in there that is usable. And even better is when you get an unintentionally funny one The only editing I usually do is cropping, although occasionally I have a shot that is really awesome except for some small issue. Then I will use some editing program to zoom in and try fix the offending pixels (I'm not really very good at it, but I can usually fix the yucky spot).

    I realise it could turn out equally bad and require reshoots, but is filming the sequence and then selecting the "right" frame not an option?

    Giving the Jacket of the Wild Hills a whirl. Between having a busy design and not being a form-fitting cosmetic, the jacket was a challenge to use.

    So basically only ONE piece from the new Minas Morgul region then, the chest piece. Still it's something. I like the combo You put together. Very natural earthy colours and not alot of bright strong dyes. Looks good. Also that You did not use any shoulders on that outfit (you did not list any anyway), as very few would have fitted, maybe some that are not huge, but looks good as it is. Alot of shoulder pieces in LoTRO looks like some Armerican Football shouder protection/gear and way oversized. Any of those would have ruined Your outfit, so a very smart or tasteful choice. *applaus*

    Thank you! and shoulders for me I don't always like as much, i only use them when i feel they fit just right for the outfit. but to be honest I haven't seen the MM shoulders yet (more questing to go), but i didn't want any anyway for this.

    Lightbulb LoTRO - Minas Morgul Expansion Armour Sets - Beta Test Preview

    If interested in at least the skins You get from the barterer in one of the camps in MM. I posted screenshots of those that were available in the BR Forums during Beta #1. As I can see Your chest piece does not match any of these designs, so obvioulsy there are more than one design of gear pieces in Minas Morgul. The ones I screnshotted are still available in that camp to barter for. I must say the quest piece You have looks alot better than the ones in the camp. So might be a good idea to hold on to quest rewarded gear for now in case their looks are unique.

    The icons had placeholders in the NPC menu, but the Armour skins seems to be added. I tested them on my character in the Dressing Room, having the plug-in/ui skin "larger dressing room" installed, that I always have activated when playing.

    I did not bother to screenshot or write down the stat values as they seemed to not be properly finsihes/polished. All sets were LvL 120 and ili 403. Needing Kindred Reputation to barter for LvL 120 gear in a LvL 130 Expansions seemed a bit off and not finsihed yet. I might be wrong and they are, but I just didn't bother to screenshot stats due to them seeming not polished and completed.

    On a personal note:
    I am not impressed by this art-work. Alot fo the peices seem more or less re-hashed with just a few minor variations done to them. Like the medium helmet and all the boots and gloves etc. It feels like I seen alot before and just minor alterations in patterns and such. I was hoping we would get some really nice looking gear finally again (been pretty dry on that front since after minas tirith in my opinion, but in vales we got a few nice pieces again so I thought it might be turning around again), but I guess not. Of course taste is personal, so other might like these skins. Also mind You this is Beta, work in progress and there might be some nice skins once they add more Armour sets, like instance gear, crafted gear, raid gear etc. We will have to wait and see I guess.

    Oh well, as this is a preview and SSG wanted feedback, so that is my feedback on the "new" Minas Morgul Armour skins so far.

    Anyway here are the screenshots for those interested. I had max Ultra High Setting on, but still some skins looks a bit low-res. Maybe that is due to "larger dressing room" enlarging them, possibly ??? I don't know ??? Usually outfit skins looks high-res even with "larger dressing room" activated. This is the default dye they come in (i guess to match the minas morgul aura glow effect), but happily they can be dyed. I made a collage of each set showing front and back (with and without cloak). These Armour Sets Cloaks, light, medium and heavy, looks identical as You might notice. There were 3 hooded cosmetic cloaks that did not look the same as each other (one being a hooded version of the ones in my screenshots, the other 2 differtent skins), but all 3 hooded (no non hooded version of the 2 that were different). Maybe I'll upload and post screenshots of those once I get more time.







    Similarities

    Btw, here is an example of what I mean. The Minas Morgul medium helmet looks more or less like the Dunland Guardian Armour Sets helmet (quest reward armour sets) with some minor alterations etc (same for the gloves, boots etc and overall it looks like nothing really new and a bit low quailty re-hashed design).



    Looking back to Enedwaith barter NPC's, Dunland (quest reward armour sets), Rohan, Minas Tirith (after that it started going downwards with some exceptions of some nice pieces here and there, but not many) etc LoTRO used to make some really nice looking skins/art-work on gear. So I know You can do that if given time. At least You could in the past.

    The outfit looks good, but I do have a suggestion. It is kind of hard to see the details without really staring at it because of the black outfit and also everything around it also being grey and black. It looks like your gamma needs a little bump perhaps but more importantly I think what would help the most is lining up the shots so that there's good contrast between the character's outfit and what's behind them.

    I love this outfit! It fits Aurthiel well, as she's rather edgy. However, RP wise it serves no purpose (I'm on Laurelin) and I have two other black edgy armor sets for my Noldor gal as well, so…

    Might as well share this outfit, even if I plan on replacing it sooner or later. It' still well put together in my eyes.






    Head: Reforged Rift Defender's Helm, dyed black.
    Shoulders: Expeditionary Mantle, dyed black.
    Gloves: Expeditionary Gages, dyed black.
    Chest: Reinforced Chestplate of Mordor's Bane, dyed black.
    Boots: Lesser Boots of Dunnauth, dyed black.
    Cloak: Cloak of Many Worlds, dyed black.
    Main-hand Weapon: Polished Black Ash Spear of Combat.
    Off-hand Weapon: Thrang's Short Sword.
    Bow: Reshaped Hunter's Bow of the First Age.
    Horse: Harbinger of Autumn Night.

    Great combo Blueghost, i like that you went brown and not all black. Great bow as well.
    "I do not accept this defeat" mumbled Boaram Highroar, crafter of his kin. His body beaten, one half of his face blue red, a helmet in pieces. The hewed tunnel immersed the creature almost fully in shadow where only sharp angular shapes where visible. The spiked club raised high. Boaram whispered a prayer to Mahal and watched his inbound doom..
