    New Loremaster question

    I'm taking a new loremaster through the intro and hope to play this one up through the quests, (my other loremaster on Imladris was built to be a crafting toon, so I haven't really done much else with her).

    I've never really done much with the loremaster class before, so I'm pretty new at it. I was wondering how does one activate flanked? I noticed on the sign of battle: wizard's fire, that if flanked is activated when using it, that it also provides some morale recovery. Is there a way to activate flanked or is it completely random?

    When your pet attacks opponent it has a change to cause flankin effect. Some pets do that more often than others. Here's a short video how it works http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlyGmLvZhfw

    As Napa-Ahma said, flanking is something that happens randomly when your pet uses an auto-attack on a mob. Different pets have different flanking rates. The legendary pets (Eagle and Bog Lurker) have the highest flanking rates. Out of the non-legendaries, Raven has the highest. At very high levels, I believe we get a pet that flanks on command (haven't gotten that far yet myself).

    Flank rate is linked to attack speed, and so effects that increase attack speed/decrease attack duration of the pet will result in a higher flanking rate. Buff your pet with Sign of the Wild: Rage to increase its flanking rate.

    The flank effect is accompanied by purple arrows flashing briefly around the mob, and a sound effect (sounds a bit like a cell phone ringing to me). Get used to watching or listening for it so that you can take advantage of it. As you noticed, it allows you self-heal with Wizard's Fire. It also adds other effects to other skills, such as increased damage or power return. Starting at level 44, you can even use a certain skill+trait combo to share the healing from Wizard's Fire with a designated target.

    The spirit pet, last pet for now, has an ability to trigger a flanking effect. This pet doesn't attack is mainly a healing pet.

    Newbie LM, just hit 85 the other day, so I am learning how to use it effectively in raids.

    I tend to run with the Bog-Lurker or the Lynx for the surprise attack and steath. The lurker does decent damage and is great at pulling from distance.

    the more often it attacks and the more often it crits the more it seems to flank in my experience. I mostly run the Raven pet, I place sign of wild rage on it and I use the rage stickpin. I get a lot of flank responses that way.
    and there are 3 ways to spend the flank, staff-strike for a quick melee hit that does more damage, staff-sweep that gives u a little power over time, or the wizard's fire heal.
