Brawler

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Class Difficulty: Advanced
Role: Damage/Defence
Available to races: Dwarf, Elf, High Elf, Hobbit, Man, River Hobbit, Stout-axe
Gameplay: Brawlers are aggressive melee fighters who wield a unique resource called Mettle to maximize their damage and fuel their most powerful skills. Although their offensive capabilities truly shine in one-on-one combat, they are not without recourse when faced with multiple enemies. In fellowships, a Brawler's abrasive nature helps them hold the ire of their foes and keep their allies safe.
Lore: Brawlers are formidable fighters whose bold manoeuvres can topple their foes and safeguard their allies.
This class is inspired by Helm Hammerhand, who to the astonishment of many, would take to the battlefield barehanded.
