There are many different styles of armour within the lands of Middle-earth. In order of increasing quality, they can be acquired via:
- General vendors;
- World drops;
- Quest rewards;
- Reputation vendors;
- Crafting, either by a Tailor (Light and Medium Armour with the use of boiled leather) or a Metalsmith (Heavy Armour with the use of metal ingots);
- Skirmishes and instances (end game only; crafted gear is better at lower levels).
