Here's a link to a thread from Turbine's Orion about changes to Cappies and LM's along with the other Isengard content.

Highlights include:

  • New Aurochs Pet for LMs!
  • Leechcraft (wound heal) and Tend the sick (disease heal) get merged
  • Cappies shield brother skill gets split into two new skills (Song brother and Blade Brother)
  • In Defence of Middle Earth now scales with your level

I would imagine the song brother is some form of minstrel type to confer heals or some such.

There's a new post on Turbine's "informational blog" about these class changes, but only about LM changes - some that were missed from the first blog, and some which they are re-considering due to feedback from forum posts...nice to hear. :)

The new information is:

  • New pet may not be Aurochs *shock!* :\
  • There may be a forum poll to decide...personally, I'd like a pet watcher >:)
  • Trait changes
    • Secret of Tar
    • Improvement: Further reduced induction of Sticky Tar from -0.5s to -1.0sAddition: Reduces cooldown of Sticky Tar from 1m 30s to 1m.Removal: Sticky Gourd reduced induction has been moved to MoNF
    • Tactically Adept
    • Addition: This is where I moved the Sticky Gourd reduced induction (-50%)Moved: "-3% Tactical Skill Power Cost" to Knowledge of the Past
    • Improved Signs of Battle
    • Improvement: It's now +25% damage from Signs of Battle.
  • Other Skill changes from Forum Feedback:
    • Ancient Wisdom
    • You sold me. This is now a Passive Skill. I took the bonus from Power and Wisdom and incorporated it into the the Passive Skill, which means the Passive Skill will provide +1 Will / Level. This means you'll get +75 Will at cap (without the need for a trait).
    • Back from the Brink
    • Removed the material component requirement (sorry Farmers).Removed the debuff.
    • Knowledge of Cures
    • There's now an additional 3-set bonus for the Keeper of Animals trait line which reduces the Cooldown of Knowledge of Cures by 5s. \o/ yay, 10s was faaar tooo loooong! :D

Wow, Orion's been busy (and listening! \o/)...here's an extract from his post...

Lore-master Update, second iteration.
Thanks for all the feedback in the various threads, it heavily influenced the following changes.

    Skill Changes:
  • Wisdom of the Council: Reduced cooldown from 10m to 5m.
  • Call to the Valar: Reduced cooldown from 10m to 5m. Increased Power cost.
Trait Changes:

Master of Nature's Fury:
  • Improved Storm-lore
    • Changed from "+25% Storm-lore Damage" to "+25% Lightning Damage".
The Ancient Master:
  • Combined the following two traits into one:
    • Fast Loader
    • Explosive Force
  • NEW Trait: The Study of Frost-lore
    • -5% Tactical Damage (going from -20% to -25%)
    • +50% Induction Time
The Keeper of Animals
  • Additional 4-set Bonus:
    • -60s Inner Flame Cooldown
  • Combined the following two traits into one:
    • Master of Beasts
    • The Wild and Ward
    • Additional Bonus:
    • +5% Damage on Sign of the Wild: Rage
    • -5% Incoming Damage on Sign of the Wild: Protection
  • Note: This replaces the Frost/Fire Mitigation.
  • Combined the following two traits into one:
    • Beast-lore
    • Hardy Companion
  • NEW Trait: Improved Inner Flame <---omg OOC group heal :\
  • Inner Flame now heals all nearby Fellows. No longer transfer threat.
  • NEW Trait: Improved Flanking <---omg tank heal :D
    • When responding to a "Flanked!" event with Sign of Battle: Wizard's Fire, the target of your "Air-lore" skill also receives the Flank-Heal.

As always, the above is subject to change as Beta begins and we start to get more in-depth, in-game feedback.

------------------------------------

A new developer diary has been posted by Turbine, which pretty much confirms the previous information.

Interestingly, the new pet focuses on healing and is even less likely to be the fabled Aurochs.

As Turbine have lifted the Non-disclosure agreement on the beta, here are some screenies of a level 75 LM from the RoI beta :)

Some of the screenies are of the new pet (a spirit) and it's abilities.

Also there are some images of new areas, maps, horses and mobs! :)
