Are you sure you aren't confusing a bpe with a miss from dust? Any good reaver should be applying Upper Hand before Dust to prevent removal. If you're struggling against a reaver who is doing this, try to use movement to slow the 15s you have this debuff up with longer looping movements and quick direction changes for seperation so both of you get fewer attacks off, then you can pot Dust after 15s, rather than trying to straight dps through the first 15s of dust/upper hand. 20% miss rate can be meaningless, or it can absolutely destroy your dps, depending on the RNG, if you can't remove it, its best to slow the fight down till you can.

I'm sure Kidefence is also referring to no bracing while using morale gearswap jewelry (at least against good reavers), so if you don't have 4-6k of 'free' morale to swap out, I wouldn't worry about no bracing.
When I toy around with my reaver, the thing that strikes me most about the class compared to other classes I'm more used to (besides Guardian) is how SLOW attack animations are. What I've been working on both with warden and warg against classes with relatively slower attack speeds, is movement such that I get multiple attacks off, but my opponent only gets a single one. This is VERY hard (for me) and I'm just scratching the surface of how to do it effectively, plus you have to pay a ton of attention to your opponents animations, rather than simply their position.
As Illy mentions, movement is incredibly important for any class, but the faster your attack speed, the more so. Being able to mouse-turn and stay on a target is something many lotro players never grasp, that you have is good, but this is one aspect of the game that I've NEVER Seen someone truly master, unlike rotations, gearswaps, and class specific strats. E has a few players who are close though (Ekklektik and Whiskeyinmytummy when is isn't drunk come to mind).
