With Update 11, Lalia’s Market came to Bree. I really do like this idea. In the past, some people complained about the seamstresses putting mannequins out in the congregational hubs out in the world. I did notice some mannequins wearing the latest in fashion in Galtrev but otherwise, I am not looking for them so they never fazed me. In Galtrev, it felt like a shopping area under the gazebo where they were located anyway.
Now, Lalia set up a permanent shoppe in the center of Bree. Let's take a look.
A walk inside reveals that there is a long hall with vendors on either side. There are horses, and horse cosmetics, and clothes of all kinds on display. There is also a Vault, with easy access to pass your Bound to Account purchases to the rest of your team.
Of course, I visit with the warsteeds. The warsteeds Lalia has in the horse stall the night I visited were (L-R) the Obsidian Steed, the Steed of the Warden (dyed yellow), the Steed of Victory, and the Steed of the Guardian (background). I didn’t check to see if all four were for sale since I already have them (see more images of all the store steeds at All-the-Steeds/ store-steeds), but I would guess that is why they are in the Market.
Here are some poppets break dancing in the shoppe. An orange butterfly looks on amused. I don't think the poppets or butterfly are for sale.
I catch up on the local gossip with two ladies of Bree. Word on the wind is that Spring festival will start this week.
Hey look! There is Lalia! She has taken up selling dyes. Well, fancy that. I scope out her dye prices to see how DanaClaus our team Scholar can use the AH to undercut Lalia’s prices. As the items in the market use Mithril Coins as currency, one would think that given a choice, most people will be sure to check the AH first for dyes.
The selection of cloaks is lovely. I think that if you look around though, you can find most all of these cloaks in game. My Draigoch cloak (top right) is still one of my favorite 3 cloaks; not to mention that it is the cloak I have equipped right now.
For the fashion-conscious, fellow blogger Cat, the Elven Tailor, took a much deeper look into the shoppe at the various rows of outfits. There are a bunch of them so go enjoy her pictures at The Elven Tailor/ thoughts-and-info-on-lailas-market.
