With the release of Riders of Rohan, there are many overlapping areas of information between the War-steed and Mounted Combat. The information is split to improve readability. War-steed Endurance is your warsteeds morale. War-steed Power is your warsteeds power. War-steed armour is your warsteeds armour the armour I got will reduce the damage my warsteeds takes for 7.
War-steed Strength contributes to the following if you have of it on a hunter :. War-steed Agility contributes to the following if you have of it on a hunter :. Traits are a War-steed 's main method of advancement. As your steed levels, it polaris belt 3211115 points which can be spent towards traits to increase the abilities of steed and rider, and in some cases earn additional mounted skills.
The five green traits across the top of the traits panel are the stat traits, which increase your War-steed's attributes. These five traits are identical for all three steed types. Below the stat traits are three trait trees, in red, blue, and yellow. These traits are different for each of the three steed types, although a few traits will appear in more than one.
For example, the trait Long Reach is offered to all three types at the top of the red tree, but Tactical Genius is only available to a Medium War-steed. To change steed type, use the drop-down menu at the very top of the Traits panel to select "Light", "Medium", or "Heavy". Down the right side of the panel are multiple Trait Specs.
You can save multiple trait set ups and switch between them on the fly, at no cost. Switching to a different Trait spec will dismount you from a War-steed. To reset your allocated trait points, click the Refund Points button at the bottom right of the panel. This will charge in-game gold to reset all of the points for a single trait spec.From Lotro-Wiki. Trait Points begin to accumulate every other level beginning at level 7, i.

I've been missing having a web-based trait planner! Example of how I think the layout should be:. Join Date Jun Posts Been missing one of these!! Nothing more annoying than adding an extra point into a trait when doing a hybrid build and having to start all over.

Guardian Class Guide (U23)
This is still work in progress and may not be the prettiest, but several classes are implemented and everything seems to be working rather fine. So maybe it will be of use to someone. It can be used for sharing builds online by saving and loading them from urls and in the future will also be able to store them locally. Assuming most of them scale in a linear fashion, my guesses for level 95 are hopefully fairy accurate.
Approximated or unknown values are denoted by [? Some, like skill damage and restores are very variable based on stats, gear and level so I think any future numbers there would still only be somewhat accurate at best. There are a couple minor display oddities between different resolutions and tooltips sometimes behave weird in very small resolutions especially when they cannot fit well. I wanted it to be more polished before release but I have overestimated the amount of free time I have, especially with holidays so close now.
So I unfortunately cannot work as much on it now but will return to it whenever possible. It was tested and working in latest Chrome and Firefox. I may work on other browsers when everything is finished. Join Date Sep Posts Originally Posted by Hothoen. Love it, thanks man!

That is the only quest pack that I don't own, I'm sitting at around tp and it's so I'll wait for another sale. Question, are all 5 trait points available from the quest pack or do you have to buy the expansion??Virtues are a type of trait that characters can gain in LotRO. Virtues grants bonuses to stats and are an important part of improving your character. Each Virtue grants bonuses to 3 different stats. The first stat listed on the tooltip grants the largest bonus, the next grants a somewhat smaller bonus, and the last stat listed on the tooltip grants the smallest bonus.
In order to gain the stat bonuses for a Virtue it must be slotted by double-clicking it or dragging it to the top bar in the Virtue page of the Trait Tree Panel which by default is accessed by the j key. All Virtues also grant a small passive stat bonus either to Maximum Morale or Physical and Tactical Mastery even if they are not slotted.
Note : even when you don't have any rank at all then you still get rank 1 passives. Slotted Virtues are tied to each Trait build specified using the numbered tabs on the right side of the Trait Tree Panel. Therefore players can have unique Virtue builds that accompany their Class Trait builds. Note that Trait builds can be switched at any time while out-of-combat. To determine which Virtues provide the most benefit for each class and role, consult the following pages:.
To increase the stat bonuses provided by Virtues, you must increase their rank. Virtues gain ranks when players acquire Virtue XP as a reward for completing a deedcertain repeatable quests, or Featured Instances. Only one Virtue can be ranked up at a time - the Virtue that is specified as Earning in the Virtue panel. To mark a Virtue as Earning, click it such that the text 'Earning' appears in green below the Virtue name.
The current maximum rank achievable for Virtues is However, the effective maximum rank is based on character level. If a character is not max level, their Virtues will be capped at a rank of the character's level divided by 2 rounded down, up to character levelor the character's level minus 55 for characters above levelup to a maximum of The following table lists the best Virtues to slot for each stat.
