Lord of the Rings Online does some more work on the Brawler and LI 3.0

If you haven’t yet gotten an advance look at the new Brawler class and the revamped legendary item system for Lord of the Rings Online, you have a short window to check out the latest build for these on the test server before it goes down tomorrow.

Beta 2 for Update 30.3 tweaks a number of the Brawler’s skills and increases its overall damage, adds some new traceries for the Beorning, and nerfed a vastly overperforming Burglar tracery because it’s too dangerous to ever let the Burglars be good in this game. Shove ’em back down to the bottom of the list, if you know what’s good for ya.

LOTRO’s debut of the Brawler and LI 3.0 has stirred up a whole lot of conversation in the community. While it’s promising, we still have questions and concerns about their full implementation.

I thought Burgs were the OP class after that big pass last year. I can’t keep track anymore. However, we did as a community ask for more class balance work and we got it. I guess that is what testing is for. :)

Exactly my thoughts. Last time I played was last year, but I remember that people complained that Burglar was “OP and broken” since that balance patch.
Burglars have performed underwhelmingly in terms of dps for most of the game’s life span though.

LOTRO’s class balancing act has always been one of the worst out of any game I have ever played and they are notorious for neglected skills and trait lines not to mention one of the coolest MMO class features of any game – fellowship maneuvers…
