Lord of the Rings Online players are being given another chance to check out the upcoming Brawler class ahead of the November 10th launch of Fate of Gundabad thanks to Standing Stone Games opening the Bullroarer test server back up to the public.

The Brawler class is the first class to hit the long-standing MMO since 2014's Beorning entered the scene, bringing the melee fighting power of Dwarvish gauntlets to bear. And if you didn't get the chance to check it out previously and want to know what it's all about, the Bullroarer test server was opened up this morning, giving LotRO players the chance to test it out and see if the new class is for them ahead of the expansion this fall.

The new test brings some changes from the previous iteration, including a tweak to trait lines such as a reduced cooldown on Efficient Strikes, as well as tweaking damage reduction values and cooldowns on Weather Blows. You can check out the full changes on this fourth beta of Update 30.3 on the official forums.

If you've also been interested in what the new Legendary Item revamp entails and want to try it yourself, this round of testing also includes this for players to dive into. We broke down the long-needed, much anticipated revamp of this system earlier this month, which you can check out here. 

In case you missed it, The Lord of the Rings Online: Fate of Gundabad got a release date this week, coming officially on November 10th. The expansion adds 10 levels, increasing the cap now to 140, while also bringing new instances, raids as well as the aforementioned LI revamp and Brawler class to the MMO. You can check out more information here. You can also prep for the upcoming expansion by grabbing all the quest content SSG is handing out to players using their in-game coupon code, which we covered earleir this week.
