LotRO Minstrel Class Preview

Posted Thu, Apr 13, 2006 by Ethec

Who knew the nerds in choir would be so popular?

It's one of those things at the top of any gamer's list when looking at a new game: "Which class is right for me?" For gamers eagerly awaiting Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar (LOTRO), knowing the name of each class isn't enough. Fans of Tolkien's work want to know how each class preserves the lore of Middle-earth while providing a workable game mechanic. Ralsu takes a peek at the Minstrel and tells us what to expect:

Turbine's description of Minstrel by itself is not revealing, but reading in combination with the Morale System is. If the entrance of a balrog into the room reduces everyone's morale--making it easier for them to die--the Fellowship (a party in LOTRO) is doubly disadvantaged: they face a more difficult foe and they will die sooner. The Minstrel counters that with her songs, which raise the morale of all in the Fellowship.

LotRO's new class comes late to the party, but it is certainly an interesting choice.
