Club Skins Collection, Part 2

This is the second installment of the one-handed Clubs collection. There is something noteworthy about this particular weapon class. Starting with the supreme tier, the crafted clubs, both Legendary Items and standard clubs, all share the same skins with several maces. I don't have an answer as to why that was done, but this is why some of these skins are going to look very familiar. To be honest, I almost omitted them, but the collection feels more complete with them.

As usual, if you see another method of obtaining a particular appearance, please let me know in the comments!

Club Skins Collection, Part 1

Clubs...one of the few weapon classes I didn't actively, despite having passively collected almost all of the recipes. It wasn't until I started playing a Beorning, which has gone untouched for a year, that I pursued clubs to compliment the racial bonus. Although the bonus technically covers axes and clubs, I'd been through the axe phase with my Champions. I figured I'd try something different. I did collect many world and dungeon drops while playing other classes and most of them made it into storage. It wasn't until I started this that I'd realized how many of them shared appearances with crafted and bartered skins. To make it easiest to collect anything featured below, I've listed the recipes instead of the numerous similar word drops. Of course, there were some unique clubs I'd acquired as well.

Enjoy this collection and, as usual, let me know if there's another way to obtain any of these appearances.

Legion of Thrang - Draig-lûth Forgemaster



This will be most likely my final Thrang-themed outfit. Like I described in my previous entry, the limited pool of cosmetics that work with these glowing and sparking weapons made outfitting truly a struggle. This particular look of a Draig-lûth (Dragon-clan) Forgemaster took almost a week. I'm highly satisfied with how far I've been able to explore using these weapon skins. In fact, I wasn't expecting to make more than one, but I think we all know how I get when new shinies are dangled in my face! Of all the Thrang outfits, I'd declare this one to be my favorite...although I've swapped out the two-handed axe for the two-handed sword at this point. As fun as it was the use the axe, it didn't glow as much as the sword! (That and my Champ's LIs are swords!)

Crossbow Skins Collection, Part 1

Crossbows, the alternative ranged weapon for bow-users, haven't seen any love since the level cap reached 100. They practically vanished from the game, outside of scaled instances, and haven't seen any new skins since the release of Western Gondor. It's a shame since some of them are beautiful! This particular weapon class has little variety, I'm afraid. In fact, crossbows have the one of the smallest pools of design variety. Many look almost the same, except for the addition of golden trimmings. This is most prominent in the crafted ones, especially among the crossbows in the same crafting tier. I don't have a large pool of crossbows myself, but after scanning Item Treasury, there's not much that's missing. In fact, many of the dropped ones share the same generic appearance of the earliest crafted ones. However, I do have enough to start a second entry!

As usual, if you see another way of collecting a skin featured below, please let me know in the comments!
