Turbine is implementing a lot of little fixes into its game, Lord of the Rings Online, tomorrow - Monday, December 1st - with Mines of Moria patch 1. This patch runs the gamut from class re-balances to crafting recipe tweaks. It's much too long to post in its entirety here, but here's a taste.

* Evade 3 & Evade 4 Passives now available for Guardians
* Defender of Free Trait Set 3 additional bonus: +2 Shield Taunt targets
* Bug fix for Shield of Fire which was only providing a 7.5% boost to threat previously
* Increased the threat generated by the shield response line of skills
