In the latest developer blog out of Turbine, the changes coming to the Champion class are explained. Just a few things in store for the class include adjustments to two-hand vs dual-wield weapons, changes to stances, a skill revamp to encourage hybridization, and better defining lines to clearly identify the role of a given build.

Helm’s Deep is scheduled to launch on November 18th, 2013.
