 Fem Armour

 At level 38, there is a chained set of quests that give your toon one of the best sets of armour at this level*, Many toons are still wearing this armour or parts of it into the 50's. This link shows you one of the quests, clicking the armour (light medium or heavy), will take you to a page where you can see the rest of the set. The kin is quite happy to help you out in completing this chain at level 38. Higher levelled Hunters are particularly useful in saving time.

* Some hunters find that the partial armour set from the troll shaws enhances this set
