Lord of the Rings Online continues to fine-tune class adjustments

How many number twos can Standing Stone Games put after a Lord of the Rings Online patch before it collapses from the sheer decimal weight? We’re getting close to finding out, as Update 22.2.2 arrived today, bringing further adjustments to last week’s mid-tier patch and its class balance changes.

Hunters, Guardians, Lore-masters, and Minstrels all should definitely read the fine print on this update, as many of the skills changes have been changed once more. Some nerfs, some buffs, you know the drill.

The studio also added a new chat restriction to premium accounts: “To help alleviate some chat spamming issues, characters on premium accounts must now be level 10 in order to chat on the global chat channels. Characters on VIP accounts continue to have no level restriction to chat, while characters on free accounts must still be level 20 to use the global chat channels.”

fine tuning the performance for EU players would be nice

Some objective reporting would be nice here. As in, you don’t even mention that some minstrel and hunter skills are now broken. And while Vastin has popped up to respond (and apologized no less–gasp!), there isn’t a peep from the dev working on the minstrel class. Or maybe all of that falls under “you know the drill”?

>there isn’t a peep from the dev working on the minstrel class

So minstrel class revamps himself by its own? It’s ok to get few broken skills through class revamps. They’ll fix it. There were much more useless and ‘broken’ skills.

No, it’s not “ok”–especially if it’s unintentional or just something they missed in QA (more than likely the case). Of all the things to defend…

“Who does Number Two Two Point Two Point Two work for?!”

I’m sorry. It’s late, and I have poor impulse control.
