Revitalize Your Role

Shape your class with greater insight and control using Trait Trees. The skills you select, like the choices you make, are more clear and meaningful than ever before.

Trait Trees

Beginning at level 6, Trait Trees offer a selection of powerful Specializations (Specs) that enhance your character.

You gain more Trait Points by leveling-up and completing Deeds, and higher levels unlock additional builds to switch between when outside combat.

Each class has unique Specs that embody a clear combat style, whether it's the Minstrel healing Spec or the Champion Morale tank Spec. As you allocate points you'll receive several bonuses, like enhanced passives, new powerful Skills, and significant Skill upgrades.


Inspired by Bilbo Baggins and his famous adventures with Thorin and Company to the Lonely Mountain, the Burglar uses stealth and confusion to weaken their opponents.

Slip past your enemies as The Quiet Knife and stalk enemies with composed cunning. The Quiet Knife relies on Critical Attack skill-chains, ready to escape into shadow at a moment’s notice.

Skill Highlight

"Strength in Numbers" gives a stacking heal-over-time for each nearby ally. Can also block with two-handed weapons.

Hands of Healing

Empower and heal your fellows while fiercely fighting enemies, but use caution. Many of the Hands of Healing skills cost Morale, a risky fact when your self-heals are limited.

Inspired by Master Elf-smith Celebrimbor, whose skill with runes of power was unparalleled, the Rune-keeper wields powerful lost language to blaze a path of destruction or restore their allies' strength.


Based on mobility burst damage, Solitary Thunder skills have less range but most are instant-cast. With a chance to boost damage, skill awareness and timing are crucial to high damage output.

Skill Highlight

”Epic Conclusion” can be cast on the move, and unleashes a bolt of lightning that consumes battle attunement to deal even greater damage.


Capable of long range induction-based attacks, the Cleansing Flame Rune-keeper relies on damage-over-time skills for reliable and sustained damage and can unlock area-of-effect attacks.

"Defiant Challenge" is an area-of-effect taunt that boosts the Warden's defences based on nearby enemies.


A ranged damage line that also focuses on debuffing enemies, Assailment has versatility. As a solo build, its strength comes from debuffs and traits that boost melee combat. In group play, it offers potent debuffs to enemy defences.
