    Profession: Warrior

    An idealistic and brutally effective soldier, Koss has great hopes for the latest generation of Sunspears. He's proud of what they've done, sometimes to the point of arrogance. With brute strength and overwhelming confidence, he cheerfully muscles his way through one confrontation after another, often using the same approach when dealing with people.

  • Transcripts Available

    Stratics has posted the transcripts from their House of Commons chat with the devlopers of Lord of the Rings Online.

    Sprite - *Crowser* What is your estimated time frame til an open beta will occur?
    LOTRO_Patience - We expect to be starting open beta fairly "soon," which of course is a relative term :D

    Keep reading to learn the answer and see what else was asked. Don't forget to stop by LOTRO Ten Ton Hammer to keep up to date on all the latest news and information. You can share your thoughts on this and all your favorite MMOs right here in our new Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!
