    Re: Visual Guide To Minstrels in Rise of Isengard

    Thank you very very much CW. I logged in one of my 65 Minsts, realized I had no idea how anything worked, and logged out, came here, found your post, *WHEW*
    Coming back the changes are overwhelming. I am just glad I have a 28 Minst I can go play for a while, although now that I think about it I could remove all my skills and get them back one by one by level as I got comfortable with them.

    Anyway, thank you again

    Excellent guide! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this extensive write-up! I'm still new to the game, so I was not familiar with the "old ways" of the Minstrel, but this is still right up my alley as the "go to" guide for helping me develop the best Minstrel I can.

    Talk about thorough! Great job on this, even if it is a bit wordy in places. +rep.

    Re: Visual Guide To Minstrels in Rise of Isengard

    I don't think I've ever been so entranced in such a long and informative set of posts. Seriously. I stopped playing the game about an hour ago as I simply wanted to finish reading this so I could think of some stuff and then read it all again tomorrow (later today technically).

    Great... GREAT post! I just recently got back after being gone for about 9mos and to say I was a tad overwhelmed after logging in would be a lie - but this made it a ton easier to understand.

    +rep for you!

    I had my minnie parked while my Runie romped...

    Turbine giveth & Turbine taketh away...

    My minstrel has been parked for well over two years, stuck at L42... erratic hours meant I was mostly solo...
    My minnie was parked at L42 when I first rolled rune-keeper, who romped...

    After RoI my Minstrel is now so much fun I'm suffering from... well, pardon, minstrel-cramps...
    Whereas my once near god-like rune-keeper now must convert fight or flight to die or flight under certain conditions...

    It's all cool, a tide may pick up one class while nearly sinking another. Both classes are still a lot of fun, I just now take the "due diligence" I used to expend keeping my minnie alive on my runie.

    Minnie is now the bully of the schoolyard

    Re: Visual Guide To Minstrels in Rise of Isengard

    One thing I have to take issue with - and it does not only apply to minstrels - is the stingy amount of percentage for various effects to hit. For example, the Minstrel class Life Singer trait which gives +10% Chance to Score Critical Heals. A 1 out of 10 chance? Give me a break! What people in every class want is an effect they can RELY ON. 1 out of 10 is so random as to be laughable. There are worse examples, like 5% (1 out of 20) and 1% (ludicrous). Again, STINGY comes to mind. If Turbine would radically change its mindset about such things and give folks RELIABLE effects it would be a great improvement, even if the effect's magnitude were to be diminished. Reliability is key over magnitude of the effect.

    Re: Visual Guide To Minstrels in Rise of Isengard

    Anthems also modify your Coda, giving unique buffs to the the Casting Minstrel based on which Anthem buffs are active at the time Coda is cast.
    So strange, but it seems that after the last change to anthems they modify the coda even after their expiration. You can cast anthems, wait for their expiration, then cast the coda and receive all possible effects. I hope it's WAI.

    The powers that be no longer sticky user created content...I think they try to push that towards the wiki that I don't ever use or think about.

    I guess we'll just have to keep "ghetto-sticking" it for the foreseeable future then.

    The official wiki isn't worth the code it's written in.

    I'm so glad I found this. Much more helpful than the official wiki. Thanks!

    "The way Cinder is traited, her buffs all have a 30 second duration on a 5 second cooldown."

    Can someone please explain to me how this is possible?

    Re: Visual Guide To Minstrels in Rise of Isengard

    1. Trait Glorious Anthem = +5 duration
    2. Trait Smooth Voice = -5 cooldown
    3. 3 yellow traits = -5 cooldown
    4. 4 yellow traits = +5 duration, -5 cooldown
    5. weapon legacy = +10 duration
    6. 5-piece bonus for Dirge-Singer or Glírberion = +5 duration

    I'm running my minstrel at 5 sec cooldown, 35 sec duration.
