Re: The classes of lotro
Minis used to be the most survivable solo mob PvE class simply because they could outheal and wear down any but the hardest hitting elite-masters. Im not sure if that is the case anymore.
I would give LMs a bump on AoE and sustained DPS. DPS traited LMs do pretty good damage now.
I would drop minnie crowd control to red as they only have 3 skills and none of them work on everything.
An RK throwing out frost skills can out AoE a hunter, who has only one significant AoE skill on a fairly long cooldown.
I would also give RKs a bump on survivability. They can heal themselves and they can maintain high DPS while kiting.
Seriously, every class probably deserves a yellow or better survivability in this game. Its not like other games where some classes just dont even try to go solo because they are so bad at it.
Wardens have the strongest PvE solo survivability of any class. The reason they die so much in groups is that they are the bottom priority for the healers because they are almost useless in groups.
