Champion Advancement Beyond Level 50

Champion Advancement Beyond Level 50 - Lord of the Rings Online -

The folks at Turbine have prepared a series of Dev Journals which take a class by class look at level advancement past level 50 in the Lord of the Rings Online's Mines of Moria expansion. Today we take a look at the Champion.

Trait Sets

Trait Sets group each class’s Class Traits into three loosely related sets of eight traits. These Trait Sets give additional bonuses for taking multiple Traits in the set. New class traits were required to fill out the Trait Sets, and I took this opportunity to use these new traits to address some of the concerns of the worldwide Champion community. Almost all of the new traits are a direct response to requested features. Each Trait Set is also linked with a new skill that fits in with the theme of the Trait Set. Champion Traits fell naturally into three sets: area of effect damage, single target damage, and tanking.

The Deadly Storm

Area of effect damage is one of the Champion’s signature abilities and this Trait Set is all about improving the Champion’s ability to unleash the deadly storm. The set includes all of the old traits that modify AoE skills like, Stalwart Blade and Eye of the Storm. This set also has more new traits than the other two sets including traits to reduce the cooldown on Hedge and a trait that increases the target health percentage required to use Dirty Tricks.
