Yule Festival 2016 – Cosmetics and Steed of Winter’s Light


This year, we have four new dyes, three new cosmetics, a housing item, two kites, and a cosmetic steed, which can be bartered from the Winter Home NPCs.

Here are the much anticipated dyes that I know many players have been waiting for:

Luckily, our cosmetics this year, which are available for [35 Yule Festival Tokens] each, dye really beautifully in these colors. I found that in the past, a very awkward part of the cosmetic would dye, so that you’d have to be careful and match the color of the dye-able parts with the color of the non dye-able parts.

We also have a small new housing item this year! Although it’d be nice to see a winter wreath, an indoor tree, or some regular indoor furniture with a seasonal flair, this is still a cute addition. The mistletoe ceiling decoration can be bartered for [15 Yule Festival Tokens].screenshot00036screenshot00039

I’m happy to see that the kite cosmetics that were introduced in summer festival have continued through the harvest and yule festivals! There are two kites, both available for [75 Yule Festival Tokens] each. I’ll be adding pictures soon.

And of course, our cosmetic steed for this year! The steed is [80 Yule Festival Tokens]. Unlike other years, the entire caparison is not bartered as a box set, but is bartered with [60 Yule Festival Tokens] for each piece in the set.

  1. Love the page but just to add a personal note. Having worked with RL Draft Horses I am THRILLED to be able to add the docked tail to my War Steed Collection. I actually asked LOTRO for that shorter tail the first day I got my War Steed, so while others might say some of the tail is missing, I think it’s wonderful. LOL

  2. Oh forgot to add why!! The tails are docked on war horses so the enemy can not get a good hold on the tail/hind end to impede the animals movement during the battle.

  3. Interesting info, Ty. Though why anyone would want to pull the tail of an angry, in-the-mood-to-kill, one-ton warhorse which can kick like a semi-trailer truck doing 80mph is beyond me.

    Example: This is a “normal” non-combat-trained horse…

  4. Actually, draft horses’ tails were docked so they wouldn’t get caught in plows or the traces of a carriage or anything else they were pulling. The idea of someone trying to pull a war horse’s tail is beyond ridiculous.
