Or is He an "Expert Treasure Hunter?"

The mention of burglars and Tolkien conjures up images of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, making off with Gollum's ring, and stealing treasure from beneath the great dragon, Smaug. The Burglar class in The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is likewise a cunning thief with riddles to tell. Learn more in Vastori's introduction to the Burglar.

Seemingly cut and dry, the Burglar class will allow players to use stealth and guile to defeat their opponents. A recent video of gameplay from this year’s E3 [Electronic Entertainment Expo] in fact shows a Burglar character "disappearing," or more likely blending into shadows, to perhaps execute a backstab or trip maneuver. These abilities are usually balanced with a weaker tolerance for damage and not being able to equip the heavier armors; but players who favor the Burglar will have no problem, as long as they don’t get caught un-aware.
