Steed of ODOGIL

Supergirl rides the Steed of Odogil
Happy Anniversary Lotro! Just like that Lotro is 7 years old and hopefully it will be around many many more. With the Anniversary comes the Anniversary festival. The activities are the same and there are a few new goodies to get this year. Of course, my course was set for the horse and his name is Steed of Odogil. (Correction: If you read this post the first day, you might have noticed that I misspelled the steed's name; I originally spelled it Ogodil. I was very consistent misspelling it the same way through the entire post. :) Thank you Detective_Fallacy of reddit lotro, Reddit lotro - steed_of_ogodil )

There is a new robe and cloak. I'm sure I will get them and toss them in the vault; my friend The Elven Tailor showed some pictures of them at this post, Elven Tailor - 7th-anniversary.

If you need help finding the goodies, CSTM has you covered. The events are the same as last year, so the guide is still the best as always. CSTM - 6th Anniversary festival Guide

Anniversary Steeds: If you like and do not have them, previous Anniversary Steeds are available for barter or sale during the festival. I love that addition that began during this past Yule festival to allow newcomers to have access to previous festival steeds.

Here is a view of the ones available at the 2014 festival. Henry Peartree in the middle of Bree is one such barterer who sells them.
You can find the previous ones in the Horse Gallery, All the Steeds.

Anniversary festival can be lots of fun, especially with friends. And, if you haven't got friends, festival is a nice way to meet people. :)

Here are a few links to previous Anniversary festivals:
Teal Fireworks Horse and Supergirl flies like you have never seen (fun at Beer Bash)
Revellers Gilded Warsteed (available via "Lost Envelopes") 
Happy 5th Anniversary lotro (one of my earliest posts on this site)
In a beginning hole far-far-away... (I was riding the 4th Anniversary Steed, aka Anniversary Steed in my first post)

Steed of Odogil: The Steed of Odogil is a bit Halloweeny to me. He is a black steed, black cloak with orange trim and stars.

Warsteed of Odogil - Default colors: The Warsteed of Odogil looks similar. We will see in the rest of the pictures that the black neck sash does not dye, so look for complements to a black neck. :)

Warsteed of Odogil - Black with Black: The most obvious route to match the black undyeable neck is to keep the rest of the outfit black. Here the Warsteed in all black, which most closely resembles the original horse.

Warsteed of Odogil - White with White: Contrasting and showing off the undyeable part, here is White with white hide.

Warsteed of Odogil - Flaxen Chestnut hide, Copper Hair, Burgundy Outfit:
The tri-tone color scheme of the gold/black/dye outfit made me want to break from my routine of having hair and hide the same color. here is one I put together. What do you think?

Warsteed of Odogil - Black Cherstnut hide, Chestnut hair, Umber outfit:
So many choices for colors. Here is another one.

Warsteed of Odogil - Dun hide, Sooty hair, Ered Luin outfit:
Hmm, I think this combination might be one of my favorites. Which variations do you like?

I hope you have a great festival time! See you soon.
Here is a parting shot I took of a festivaller today at the Beer Brawl.... Good times. :)
