MMORPG.com posted their first look at Lord of the Rings Online this weekend.
My Hobbit Minstrel really became my main character as I traveled through the lands of Middle Earth playing songs to heal the Morale of my fellow party members as well as fighting and doing damage through my shouts.

A Minstrel has the ability to boost Morale, thus healing players.
