I used to love my burglar. Among my 8 maxed alts, he was the 2nd or 3rd most played at 75. Back in Rise of Isengard, Rumbold the "Quiet Gambler" (5r/2b) was the toast of many a Fellowship for keeping Frost Saruman busy, debuffing Durchest, teasing Thorog and tweaking Gortheron's nose.
Poor Rumbi now spends his time crying softly in the Galtrev craft hall, wearing his chicken outfit and sitting in the scholar's study with the records of his past deeds in leather-bound journals around him. Occasionally he goes home to the Shire to sniffle into a pint of Toad-Tongue Ale and reflect on the great days of his youth. Only his pet chicken and the occasional kinnie or friend patting him on the head tell him that he was once a contender.
Now, every time he gets close to a boss they splat him despite capped mits, his 22k morale and high Critical Defence. The legions of adds take him ages to hack through while his tank and healer try frantically to survive. Even his Mischievous tricks don't help much to heal the Fellowship. And the Ettenmoors is full of ego-crazed epeeners so he doesn't go there. He killed Bloodtail once 1v1 in Hoarhallow, and that's enough for him.
So the point of this tale of woe:
What do burgs do outside the moors these days? What do they bring to a Fellowship? CJs are weak, they are squishy, they have no range and no AOE, and melee bosses are designed for heavies. Unless you are a true pro like some on this forum, how are you supposed to survive or contribute?
Devs, please make Fellowship Manoeuvres useful again.
