Month of the Lore-Master

Month of the Lore-Master - Lord of the Rings Online - MMORPG.com

When Book 11: Defenders of Eriador, for Lord of the Rings Online is released it will bring major changes and updates to several of the game's classes. One of those classes is the Lore-master, which will see many new abilities including new crowd control options with skills that affect drakes and the undead, a new lynx companion as well as non combat animal friends, new direct damage skills, and the ability to brink companions back from the brink.

Overview:

The Lore-master is one of the more complex classes in The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ (LOTRO), and Book 11 was the Lore-master’s turn for an update. After examining the strengths and weaknesses of this class, we tasked ourselves with delivering more versatility and a greater potential for DPS over the lifetime of the character, while making up for some of the perceived shortcomings of current low-level crowd control abilities.

In essence, our goals were to make the Lore-master’s group role more apparent and more obvious at an earlier level range, and to give Lore-masters more ways to use their utility role to be effective against a wider array of creatures.

Challenge Discussions:

The general idea behind these changes was to serve the needs of our current players and achieve our goals without removing the already established flavor of the class. There seemed to be a great consternation on the part of some Lore-masters, who believed that some of their limitations, rather than their abilities, were what defined their class. However, we had faith that these issues could be overcome without diminishing the flavor of the Lore-master.
