Keth and I watched a video this morning that shows a bit of the new housing area and a bunch of the new housing items!  Just a warning: if jerky cameras make you motion sick, you may want to find some screenshots instead  :-\

General Discussion / U18 Combat Changes
« on: April 18, 2016, 11:50:56 AM »
https://www.lotro.com/en/game/articles/combat-changes

Avoidances (BPE):
  • 35% partial avoidance cap
  • 60% partial avoidance mitigation cap (starts at 10%)
  • 13% full avoidance cap

With lower levels of avoidance (e.g. under 7000): 12% full avoidance, 15% partial avoidance, 15% partial avoidance mitigation (pre-U18 stats: 15% full avoidance, 5% partial avoidance, 15% partial avoidance mitigation).

This makes change allows you to use more BPE-based skills and makes combat positioning more important.

Mastery:
  • New mastery cap of +400% damage (pre-U18 of +200% dmg)
  • Change to the way mastery is calculated (nearly linear)


Medium Armour Mitigation:
Medium armour classes require less mitigation rating than heavy armour classes, but more than light armour classes.

General Discussion / Stat Caps at Levl 100
« on: November 08, 2015, 12:59:07 PM »
(from http://lotd.shivtr.com/forum_threads/1841774)

Critical Rating
  • 14800 = 10 % devastating chance
  • 16800 = 25 % critical chance
  • No cap on critical magnitude

Critical Defence
  • 10000 = 50% = all critical hits are like normal attacks, and devastating hits are like critical hits.
  • Above 10000 will still give higher than 50%, but this will only reduce devastating hits which are more rare (In Ettens still affects crits also though).

Mitigations
  • For light armours 12500 = 40 %
  • For medium armours 18750 = 50 % (and no, it's not a typo but very unfair)
  • For heavy armours 16700 = 60 %
  • The same caps are true for Orc-craft and Fell-wrought btw. They are just more difficult to reach since Armour only gives 20% to those opposed to Common which gets 100% from Armour. However direct physical mitigations ratings convert 100% to orc-craft/fell-wrought. To find your orc-craft/fell-wrought mitigation ratings hover over 'Physical' under mitigations!'
 

News for T2 instances!
It was recently discovered here that all mobs in T2 instances (and T3 skirmishes) have a basic mitigation penetration of 6750, which means to actually have capped mitigations you must go 6750 above the normal caps listed above:
  • Light Armour: 12500 + 6750 = 19250 = 40%
  • Medium Armour: 18750 + 6750 = 25500 = 50%
  • Heavy Armour: 16700 + 6750 = 23450 = 60 %

Parry/Block/Evade
The cap is 25 %, but it takes very high rating to get there (please tell me if you reach it [Wink] ) Here are some values for different ratings:
  • 15000 = 20 % (which is still the lvl 95 cap)
  • From this point every 1000 rating only gives around 0.25%.
  • 36000 = 25 % cap

Incoming Healing
  • 15800 = 25 %
   
Finesse
  • 36800 = 50 %
But it's more important to know when your class stops being resisted/pbe'd:
  • 10000 = Tactical classes get no resists in T2 content (tested by spamming SoP: Command on mobs with 'superior' resistance).
  • For physical dps classes I don't know what value gives 0 % p/b/e, but at 10000 my hunter still got evaded in BG T2C. It seems to be different what amount is useful for each class, so best is just to test it and find out when you get below 1-2% p/b/e in T2 instances and probably stick with that finesse.
  • Finesse doesn't seem to affect partial p/b/e. Even with 26k finesse on hunter I still got around 7% partial evades in DoS T2C.
   
   
Resistance
  • 36800 = 50 %

Physical and Tactical Mastery

   
    [li80000 = +200% damage][/li]
    [li]For tactical mastery there is a cap to outgoing healing: 66600 = 70%.[/li]
    [/list]
       
    Morale/Power/ICPR/ICMR/OCPR/OCMR
    No caps [lol]
