In the latest Lord of the Rings Online Developer Diary, Tim “Raskolnikov” Lang talks in depth about the Minstrel class.
"When I started working on updates for the Minstrel, I began by reading through the giant community feedback thread on the forums and recording all of the feedback I found there. Next, I looked through all of the Minstrel’s Skills, Traits, Trait Set Bonuses, and Legacies for any rough edges or anything else that I had found annoying when playing my Minstrel."
Following Lang's statement is an extensive look at the Minstrel class and what can be done to make the class even better. Read the full dev diary over at the Lord of the Rings Online official site.
