The Lord of the Rings Online is setting out to release its latest expansion, Fate of Gundabad, next month but players can start to dive into some of the largest changes to come to the MMO in years right now. As part of today's Update 30.3, the latest class as well as the much anticipated Legendary Item revamp has released into Middle-earth.
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.
If you've been eager to finally see what the team at Standing Stone Games had in store for both its first new class in years as well as the much anticipated legendary item revamp, this is a good week to be a Lord of the Rings Online player then. Both will be available to check out starting Wednesday on the Bullroarer test server this week.
With Gundabad and the future on the horizon for The Lord of the Rings Online, we sat down with the team's executive producer, Rob Ciccolini, for an interview last week. This is part two of our chat, where we dive into EG7, graphic upgrades, and the Brawler inspiration.
LotRO's first class to release since 2014's Beorning, the Brawler is getting some details thanks to new datamined leaks in the Middle-earth set MMO. The Brawler, which we all pretty much knew was going to be a hand-to-hand combat specialist, is broken down in a recent YouTube video from LotRO YouTuber Louey7.
In case this flew under your radar, Lord of the Rings Online Community Manager, Cordovan, confirmed the Brawler class, though we won't see it in War of the Three Peaks.
