Good news for Beorning players in Lord of the Rings Online: You look like you are due for some class love from the developers. Standing Stone Games said on the official forums that it is prepping a revamp for the shape-shifting class, although most of the changes will be less radical and more quality-of-life improvements.
“Beornings are fairly effective statistically speaking,” said the class developer. “Their DPS tends to be solid, if not monumental, their survivability is pretty good, and they can serve in groups as fairly effective members. They don’t generally stand out of the crowd in any one way, but being something of a hybrid class that’s sort of to be expected. So my main focus is going to be QoL improvements — making the class play more smoothly, fixing up outdated or lame skills, and trying to make them generally more fun to play. For some value of the word ‘fun.'”
The team also is pushing out a small patch today that mainly fixes a few giant invisible walls that were plaguing Lone-lands questers, nerfs low-level Lore-master DPS, and adjusts the challenge levels in Angmar.
