The flood of developer diaries on the changes coming to The Lord of the Rings Online with the Siege of Mirkwood expansion continues today with the newest diary detailing changes to the character panel. Character stats will be going through a few changes as well and Turbine detailed those in today's diary with stat adjustments, changes to stances, and a lot more.

We want to have a clear delineation between Offensive stances and Defensive stances. Given the increased importance of shields for defensive purposes, a change to the Guardian’s Overpower skill is required. Guardians will no longer be able to use Shields while in Overpower stance. As part of this change, Overpower-based legacies will no longer appear on one handed weapons. Players will find new Legacy Exchange scrolls in the Guardian Trainer shop inventory that will exchange Overpower-based legacies on existing Legendary Items for new legacies.
