The latest Lord of the Rings Online developer diary focuses on changes coming to most classes with the release of the Helm's Deep expansion later this fall. To give the quick and dirty, the team has produced a highlight video.
Beginning at level 6, Trait Trees offer a selection of powerful Specializations (Specs) that enhance your character.
You gain more Trait Points by leveling-up and completing Deeds, and higher levels unlock additional builds to switch between when outside combat.
Each class has unique Specs that embody a clear combat style, whether it's the Minstrel healing Spec or the Champion Morale tank Spec. As you allocate points you'll receive several bonuses, like enhanced passives, new powerful Skills, and significant Skill upgrades.
