Lord of The Rings Online – Book 12: The Month of the Guardian
As Turbine’s Jeff Steefel promised, the Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is going to get an update for the Guardian class in the Book 12 expansion.
Guardians are the tanks and Damage Per Second class in LotRO, and both those capabilities will be under going some change. The ability to actually kill their opponents will be tweaked as well as repair costs and offensive stances.
One of the specific changes to the Guardian class results from a miscommunication during development. In correcting the SNAFU, Guardians will discover that Deep Breath is being nerfed, causing some players to have to change their strategy when confronting some of the higher end instance bosses. However they should find plenty of other changes to make up for it.
As a LotRO player, I haven’t really gone far with the Guardian class yet, so I doubt I’ll really notice any big changes in the class. However, from what I’ve heard, this update will really change available playstyles for the better.
