Future of Combat Dev Diary - Lord of the Rings Online - MMORPG.com

The Lord of the Rings Online official site has been updated with a dev diary which details upcoming and future changes to lotro's combat system.

Looking at the combat system as it has grown over the last year, the Systems team has learned a lot from player behaviors, playstyles, and how they interact with all the different types of monsters in The Lord of the Rings Online™.
