Ninja’s Day

Oh? You didn’t know it was Ninja’s Day as well as Pirate’s Day on September 19? Exactly! That’s just how sneaky we ninja’s are – “ninja adding” a make-believe holiday to one already in existence.

So, for all those, like us, who simply can not get over the fact that pirate’s may have just beaten us in the popularity contest, wear your best ninja outfit this Pirate’s…I mean, Niiinnjjaaa’s…Day….to show your obstinate loyalty.

Before I get into further detail with these outfits, some of the items found in this article, such as the helms/facemasks used (the Ebon Mask, Dementia Hood, and the Red Defias Mask) can also be found in the Top of the Class: Rogue Outfits article, which outlines many substitutions for each of the items. That same article also has some ninja-like outfits to consider to wear on “Ninja’s Day” ^_^

This first outfit is a more traditional ninja outfit, with many substitutions for each piece of gear.

The uncommon world drop leg armor, Master’s Leggings, could be replaced for any other black pants, especially for pants like the Tuxedo Pants (crafted) or the Black Tuxedo Pants (Noblegarden garb with no level requirement), to stay simple (and cheap ^_^). Much like the pants, the Scouting Boots can be replaced with any other more easily obtainable black boots/shoes, or simply with the Dress Shoes – which also have no level requirement. The Tattered Cloth Vest and the Tattered Cloth Belt are vendor bought armor and are nice, cheap additions in a ninja outfit.

The Black Mageweave Shoulders are a good alternative for the Silver-thread Amice, should anyone wish to add shoulder armor to their ninja outfit. Likewise, the Black Mageweave Gloves could be replaced with the Tattered Cloth Gloves to match with the outfit even more.

This next outfit is for all you girls out there who can’t help but to want to look sexy; it reminds me of something you’d see on a female character in Soulcalibur II

The Bandit Boots can be replaced with its lower level, and common, version – the Recruit’s Boots – which are Human/Gnome/Dwarf Warrior starter boots, and can be bought from Thomas Yance. Instead of the Blackened Defias Gloves, one could always wear the Black Mageweave Gloves; they are shorter, but, still match with the outfit.

The Hanzo Sword is a rare world drop, but, a great “samuri-like” sword to have for RP purposes. It is also used in another outfit found in my Top of the Class: Rogue Outfits article, where I list several alternate swords with the same style as it.

    This same outfit can be worn with a hooded helm, in this case Kirina’s Dementia Hood – a helm which I feel accents the purple shading in the Black Mageweave Vest

Guy characters could wear this same Black Mageweave armor based outfit, but, it would look completely different.

These next couple of outfits are for those ninjas who secretly want to be a pirate, as they are brighter in color, and look more like a scurvy swashbuckler than a stealthy ninja.

The Starfire Vest is a very nice chest-piece, but, it is a low world drop in the Outlands. The Dementia Hood is also an Outland world drop; however, with both equipped – they match perfectly to one another. The Apothecary Gloves, were a reward from a Horde quest, but any other form-fitting black gloves will do, if desired to add in your ninja outfit. The Bard’s Boots are the reddish/purple version of the Bandit Boots, and match the hood and the chest.

The swords Light Scimitar and Ebon Scimitar can be substituted for any other sword/dagger to fit ones armor availability. For mid-level players, you can by the Falchion sword, sold by many vendors, in replacement of the Ebon Scimitar; they have the same model.

This outfit is a little bit more rugged than the previous ninja-pirate one. The Ruffian Belt, the Bandit Boots, and the Metalworking Gloves all compliment one another with the large buckles found on all of them. This same outfit can be done with using the White Swashbuckler’s Shirt with a white face-mask like the White Bandit Mask.

This last outfit can be just another alternative for a girlie (not as sexy) ninja, or a girlie-pirate-ninja. ^_^

The Studded armor can be bought from several different vendors, and is great everyday wear, as well.

And, for all of those who want to take the easiest route possible: eat Savory Deviate Delights until you transform into a ninja!

Depending on the gender of your character, you will always be either a Human male or female ninja.

Happy “Ninja’s” Day!
