Lord of the Rings Online informal player survey highlights the least and most popular classes

If you’ve ever wondered which class is the most popular in Lord of the Rings Online, Squirle over at LOTRO Players has your back. By compiling a lot of observable data from the European server Evernight, Squirle managed to come up with a possible picture of how LOTRO’s playerbase is spread out.

Unsurprisingly, both Hunters and Champions are the most-played classes with a combined total of 45% of all characters when this data sample was taken. Rune-keepers and Lore-masters were seen out in significant numbers during the pre-endgame leveling process while Beornings, Burglars, and Wardens were vastly underrepresented.

The informal survey also looked at how many players were in each level bracket. What’s notable here is that a majority (64.4%) of players were still leveling to the cap while only 35.6% were at level 130.

“While there might be more conclusion to be drawn all these numbers are from one server over one week of LOTRO,” the author said. “[It] might be interesting to see how these change over time. Details such as how many of the 130s are in a raid would be needed to support claims that Guardians really bad at the moment.”

Are Champs that great now? IIRC they really were not the greatest back when I played LoTRO but that was a long time ago.

They seem to be a pretty decent class. I can’t speak totally tho, but they seem to be recommended to hell and back as the prime solo class.

Until I finally walked away in the winter of 2019 my main was a champion. Overall they’ve been in a pretty solid place for some years. Outstanding aoe dps and actually not too bad as an off tank.

Well, Warden being in the dumps is understandable.

When Warden launched, and for the first years, it was a super complex class to learn and play. The payoff for learning the class was outstanding self healing, outstanding damage mitigation, and outstanding damage dealing. The class was just a real joy to play and constantly fun. IF you learned the class.

Then, the complexity of the class was reduced somewhat. But even more telling was that the abilities of the class were nerfed into the ground. :(

Now you have a class that is still difficult to learn and difficult to play without the payoff of great self healing, damage mitigation, and damage dealing.

Really is to bad; they had a marvelous design that is now lost.

Yup, the state of Wardens has been pissing me off for some years. (sigh)
