Month of the Burglar

Posted by Keith Cross on Jan 10, 2008  | Comments

Month of the Burglar -

Each new book for Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online: The Shadows of Angmar takes a look at two of the game's classes for the purpose of making improvements and re-balancing the class. Here we present the changes that are on the horizon for the Burglar in Book 12.

Getting Started

Adding more to a class which already has so much versatility and depth hasn't been easy. The challenge has been to enhance a very solid base in ways that will be fun and interesting, while not shifting or bloating its capabilities beyond where they ought to be.

Ultimately, we decided to add a little something to everything. That means new skills and items that enhance or play on the Burglar's established class abilities. Most of the new skills will be awarded in levels 40-50, but a few will go out earlier in a Burglar's lifetime. The end result: A mix of fun skills and items that the shrewd Burglar can apply in the right situations to good (and sometimes humorous) effect.

So without further ado, here's the skinny on what's new for the sneakiest class in Middle-earth.

New Skills

On top of a healthy dusting across the class, we wanted to do something that had the potential to significantly shake up a Burglar's game play. So, in a sense, this month does go to 11... as in 11 new skills. With new skills granted as low as level 20 and with many filling out the top 10 levels, the Burglar gets new stealth skills, Fellowship Maneouver response skills, a positional damage buff, shared stealth, and a new mode of play called "Mischief" which emphasizes the Burglar's Tricks and crowd control... just to name a few.
