Hunter-icon.png
The Hunter is a master of field and forest, unmatched with the bow. Hunters use their survival skills to guide their companions and lay traps for their enemies. Hunters are at their strongest when attacking from a distance, but they are able to defend themselves in melee combat, when needed.
Inspired by Legolas, Prince of Mirkwood, a mighty hunter and companion of Aragorn, the Hunter is the master of ranged damage with additional skills in crowd control and support.
With his ability to travel quickly to many locations while taking his entire Fellowship with him (wayfaring), the Hunter has become known as the Middle-earth Taxi Service.
Available to Races: Dwarf, Elf, Hobbit, Man

Role

Nuker - The Hunter is proficient at dealing out damage to single foes at both range and melee. When the Hunter is at range, he can unleash devastating arrow shots that do high damage to single targets. When the solo enemy finally manages to close into melee range, the Hunter is well-equipped to deal the finishing blow with some of their melee skills.
The Hunter has three different trait specialisation sets: the Bowmaster, the Huntsman and the trapper of Foes.

  • Bowmaster: The Bowmaster is a stationary, high-impact build that focuses on bursting down targets before they have they can get into melee. While grouping for DPS, this is usually the wanted Hunter specialisation, as it simply deals the highest damage.
  • Huntsman: The Huntsman is a mid-ranged mobile harasser who excels at sustained damage, while navigating the battlefield. This versatile build allows the Hunter to kite and deal with more than a single enemy.
  • Trapper of Foes: The Trapper Of Foes functions as a utility build that focuses on sustained damage, AoE, and crowd control. In this build, the Hunter can take on multiple mobs at once by trapping many of them, to prevent being overwhelmed.

Focus

In addition to Power, Hunters use another resource, Focus. Some abilities generate Focus (such as Quick Shot-icon.png Quick Shot), while other (usually better) abilities spend Focus. A Hunter can have a maximum of 9 Focus (each 'pip' on the Focus meter represents 3 Focus, also marked by a small crosshairs icon). Abilities will spend Focus in multiples of 3 (1 pip); most spenders consume 3 focus / 1 pip, but a few abilities consume more (see Merciful Shot-icon.png Merciful Shot).

A Hunter must stand still to maintain their Focus. The Focus meter will start to deplete if a Hunter begins moving, and can quickly empty to zero if a Hunter moves too much. Choosing to specialize in the Huntsman (blue) trait tree will entirely remove this penalty.

Range

All Hunters have extra range on ranged weapon special abilities and auto-attacks, able to fire from up to 30m away. Hunters specialized in the Bowmaster (red) traits can fire from even longer distances, up to 40m.

Mounted Combat Skills

These skills can be used only while riding a war-steed, and only while in the regions of East Rohan, Wildermore, and West Rohan. Passive skills which improve the war-steed's defensive capabilities remain effective even in other regions, but serve only to prevent forced dismount due to enemy attacks.
The three different stances (Riddermark, Rohirrim and Red Dawn) influence the effects and damage of the different skills, but all skills are available in each stance.
