Berserker






Donning nothing but the skin of a bear and cloth inscribed with runes of victory and might and perseverance, the berserker charges into battle, ignoring the cold as well as the hurts.



His many scars tell their tales of old fights fought, his lust for blood, his will to win.



"I'll ask of the berserks, you tasters of blood,
Those intrepid heroes, how are they treated,
Those who wade out into battle?"
- from the Haraldskvæði saga



Head: Visage of the Bear, Orange (Store)
Chest: Bare-chest (Dwarf-only from the Store)
Back: Cloak of the Boar, umber (Fall Festival/LoTRO Store)
Legs: Tavol-socas, umber (RoI instance drop)

Emotes: 
/roar
/tantrum

Note: 'Berserker' comes into Modern English probably from Old Norse berserkr, from ber-  (either *ber-,  base of björn. bear, or berr, bare ) + serkr/sark, shirt/armor, having thus been translated as 'bareskin' or 'bearskin'.

    1. The bare-chest cosmetic certainly opens up possibilities... even though I think it takes some getting used to. :)
