Book 12: Week of the Champion

Book 12: Week of the Champion - Lord of the Rings Online -

Book 12: The Ashen Wastes, the upcoming free expansion for Lord of the Rings Online, will make major changes and add new powers to the Guardian and the Burglar classes. But Guardians and Burglars aren't the only classes that will be getting a little love and attention, as Book 12 will also see smaller scale changes for the Champion as well.

Although the Champion was one of the first classes to undergo the "Month of" design process shortly after LOTRO's launch, we didn't yet have the wealth of feedback we've since received. In Book 12, we're taking the opportunity to address some of the issues that have been voiced since LOTRO went live. Since this is the second time we're looking at Champions, the update won't be as involved as the full-on "Month of" updates that Guardians and Burglars are receiving, but we hope to address most of the issues brought up by the Champion community as well as giving them the tools necessary to fulfill their class roles in LOTRO.


Currently, Fervour is the only choice of stance for most levels. The Book 12 Champion update will include a new stance, available at low levels. It won't be as all-out offensive as Fervour, but it will include in-combat power regeneration as well as allowing the Champion to Block, Parry and Evade, though at some penalty. In addition to the new stance, Glory is going to get a small boost in effectiveness and will be available at mid-levels.

These two changes should give Champions a good choice of trade-offs in their stance selection between offense and defense.
