Looks like someone should have told Lord of the Rings Online players that they shall not pass…into the game’s test server and uncover some unreleased information. Some sneaky players spent a bit of time on the game’s test server and uncovered new information on the upcoming and still-in-development Brawler class.
With new leaks out there concerning the upcoming Brawler class, YouTuber Louey7 compiled all of the information into a 20-minute video to offer fans an idea of what this melee class might look like at launch. In the video, Louey7 breaks down the class abilities that have been uncovered from the datamined leaks. This includes a look at the hand-to-hand combat strikes with gauntlets, protective buffs for the class, available taunts, and the self-heals available to Brawlers.
Under the Brawler’s Mettle Spenders, many of the attacks seem to deal serious damage to opponents. While moves like Vicious Knee and Gut Punch deal around 2000 – 3000 damage, there is a move called Thunderous Smash that deals damage in the 5000’s. Of course, these numbers may change as the class is polished before the reveal, but it still seems like the Brawler will have no issue putting up a good fight.
The class’s buffs are also interesting to see. Players will have access to a Follow Me buff that will inspire comrades to “charge headlessly into a fray…against their better judgement” and also a Naked Aggression buff that causes you to ignore all technique to barrage your enemy with strong, but basic, strikes. There are also some fun taunts like Come At Me, which will beckon one or more enemies for a vicious beatdown, while the Brash Overture taunt will drive allies into a frenzied rage.
Of course, all of this could change before the Brawler class is made available, which may coincide with the game’s upcoming visual upgrade, but so far, it seems that the Brawler is poised to be everyone’s new favorite in-game tank.
