There are some whackadoodle hats in LOTRO. Just saying. I have a few favorites (screenshots after the jump), but a lot of the time, I keep that head slot toggled OFF.
What about you? Friday poll time!
And now for the screenshots.
The Sun Hat is a cheery thing, complete with pipe for breaks!
One of the lovely cosmetics (the Wide-brimmed Spring Hat) from the recent Spring Festival, dyed violet. A coy sort of hat.
I will not reveal how long it took me to skirmish solo for the 5 Whatsit Marks that used to be necessary for this (the Ceremonial Thrill-seeker’s Helm). It was still totally worth it.
For Starry Mantle, a Loafer’s Hat redux.
It’s Yule-fest in July! When the Yule Stocking Cap (and Scarf) were first revealed, I know a lot of people were disappointed with the mesh and with the items in general. Contrary person that I am, I love both with all my festival-obsessed heart.
I probably use the Traveller’s Hood more than any other hat cosmetic.
You know, you pat a Dwarf on the head, you sort of deserve to get your palm impaled (by the Barrow-scout’s Helm). Baruk Khazâd!
What’s YOUR favorite hat/helm?
(And for the record, I blamed my infrequent head slot use on OTHER MMOs. I just got so used to toggling hats off in World of Warcraft – which I still happily play, don’t be a hater! It’s just full of so many crazysauce Power Ranger, crystal-ball-on-fire-on-your-head hats that I stopped even looking.)
