Helping the Mischief Makers

Helping the Mischief Makers - MMORPG.com

Ken "Graalx2" Burd has penned a new Lord of the Rings Online blog post in which he lays out issues that fans feel the Burglar class faces. Burd discusses seven critical changes to the Burglar class in the coming months including power regeneration, more speed when 'stealthed' and including the ability to get into "Mischief" stance during battle.

Well, we decided that allowing Mischief in combat would be contrary to our ideas of the whole purpose of the skill. Instead what we decided on is not one, but two new stances that Burglars can choose from in addition to Mischief. While these new stances share a cooldown with Mischief and cannot be toggled in combat, they can be used in Stealth. The first stance is Quiet Knife. It grants a small bonus to melee damage and positional damage that increases when slotting deep in the Quiet Knife trait set. It also comes with a -10% decrease to perceived threat.

The other stance is the Gambler. This stance increases the healing and damage of Gambles as well as decreasing the resistance of monsters to Gambles. All three of these effects are increased by slotting deep into the Gambler trait set. The Gambler also comes with a +5% increase to the Burglar’s chance to Evade.
