Battle formation number one: The ‘Song 2‘.
As can be seen from the picture, in this UTD formation we have the glass cannon ranged DPS classes leading from the front in order to take the aggro alpha-strike, with the tank and melee DPS following behind in order to attack ineffectually from range by throwing muffins and lembas bread.
Somewhere, way out of shot, is the group’s healer who, if he hasn’t been trampled to death by our overenthusiastic mounted charge to get to the next battle, usually arrives just in time to save our sorry selves from the general chaos at hand.
Once again though, our unique brand of special tactics enabled us to win the day, and goodness me The Battle for Aughaire is a fun little instance.
Lotro has a feature that if you are in auto-attack mode but get separated from the mob you pull out a bow and start firing arrows. Any Champion or Guardian who is a bit slow to keep up is sure to be the butt of a few jokes for pretending to be a hunter.
