    Burg Dev Diary is up

    http://www.lotro.com/en/game/article...E2%80%99s-deep

    Not a lot of detail (or much info at all really), but some new skills are mentioned..

    Not a word about FMs.

    It sounds like "Stun Dust" is now a skill in the QK tree (that maybe doesn't require the consumable? or that has a much shorter cool down?).

    Coup de Grâce sounds fun - I like the idea of going back into stealth.

    MM will be more engaging now, because the trick duration has been decreased? Hmm... Being able to get more trick-removal effects is good, I guess. But that's not really an issue for me currently. I used to be a pure MM up to 60 or so, and have been QK with a heavy MM splash since then. I personally didn't think it needed much changing, other than to increase DPS a bit while in MM perhaps.

    "Instead of having a random chance to apply one of four effects, Clever Retort now applies one of the four based on which Trick was consumed" - that should be nice.

    Looking forward to trying it out...

    To be honest, I wasn't happy about trait trees at all before, but now I'm pretty psyched after reading this.

    Coup de Grace sounds pretty awesome, especially if we're fighting multiple opponents. It re-stealth's us and allows us to get another opening strike on the next opponent.

    The only problem with it really would be for people who have swap bags (like me) for stealth speed and all that stuff.


    It sounds like there will be lots of survivability boosts in the trait-lines which are very welcome. And I'm extremely excited that they're buffing up QK burst damage. All in all, I like where this is going.

    I liked the mention of the skill "All in" where we receive a debuff if we don't defeat the enemy. I assume if it comes with a risk it should be a really powerful buff. Since it is in the gambler line it might be an offensive buff with lots of damage or a defensive buff like pledge or defiant challenge.

    As a new player and one that doesn't have a Burglar yet, reading the developers diary has made me want to roll right straight away to be ready for Helm's Deep. I love the idea of being a stealthy menace and I think this might be my ticket to it!

    Great work Turbine and RockX!

    Same! I just might have to dust off my burg and bring her back into play once more. I'm really excited for these changes!

    Woah! I am so excited now. A skill that allows you to drop into stealth after a kill... my prayers have been answered!!
