The folks over at code masters (European lotro forums) have done it again. Screenshots of the new lvl 65 armour sets.

The annuminas set has been remade for lvl 65s, with 25 rad each. Like its lvl 50 version, each piece of armour is a tad underwelming, but the stat-set bonuses quickly add up.

Helegrod class armour has been remade for lvl 65, again with 25 rad each. The Stats are...comparable perhaps, but for certain classes the set bonuses are, well, imo some of the best in the game. (Sry champs. I'm really beginning to join you in thinking turbine just hates you. My sympathies are with you) Burgs see a +3 stealth lvl and a mind-numbing +30% to surprise strike damage from stealth. I'm thinking with some tweaking a burg can hit between 3k and 3.5k....every minute with that skill.

Guards get a challange resist decrease, which at the very least releaves us of having to have the LI legacy on our belts. In addition we see a Cooldown on Challange the Darkness, our "Oh-shoot-It's-my-aggro-and-I-want-it-NOW" skill. Not too shappy though I still think the watcher's set is best for guard. Cooldown on Pledge (our "You-can't-hit-me-nah-nah-nah-na-nahhhhhh-nah" skill)

Anyway I won't spoil it all for you. But it's pretty cool that there is some high-rad gear out there that can be mixed and matched. Alot more building opportunities. And some of those set bonuses are just sick. SM costs are a little concerning, but we will see. Grinding skirmishes and instances for a set reward is better then grinding them for items that you must get a bunch of to make another item slightly better, but will ultimately be replaced in the near future IMO.

I'm actually excited. I'll finally have something to do in the game. Besides harass Eles and Geo
