After running about 30 tier 3 skraids at 95 today, they remind me of the way t2 skraids felt at 85 before Update 9. (i.e. people who didn't wait for a tank to get aggro would die, and those with low tactical mitigation, could get one-shotted).
For example, I noticed my hunter, with 14,500 morale and 30% tactical mitigation could survive a grimm AoE while a 20,000 morale dps champ would die. why? because the dps champ had low tactical mitigation virtues.
It is going to take some time for low lvls and high levels to adjust back to a more normalized LotRO experience.
In fact, if you are struggling, it is likely because you have been too used to an easier gameplay for the last 5 months.
I remember doing t1 solo skirmishes on my hunter at lvl 40 3 years ago and dieing over and over, I see the same types of feelings from you here. But then I learned a few things. 1. train a class appropriate skirmish pet (a lvl 20 trained herbalist isn't going to help much in a lvl 40 skirmish, you need to train the pet as well). 2. learn how to use crowd control skills or debuffs to help ensure your success.
All in all, I'm pleasently surprised that the the traditional LotRO forged for 7 years has now reappeared in Update 13. Just have patience, study your class, and figure out how to achieve success.
