Hunter

This is just a brief introduction to the class. If you are looking for an in-depth reference, I recommend this guide for lotro hunters.

The hunter class, in the context of the Lord of the Rings Online, is an always reliable ranged fighter, who has lethal damaging abilities at range but is often easily vulnerable to a melee or close-ranged combat. The rustic hunter also relies on wilderness and adventuring skills and abilities like traps, hunting and tracking for creatures or monsters in the vast and deep forests of Middle-earth.

Because of their innate special ability to use traps extremely well, Hunters excel at soloing to hunt down a single target, even of higher levels. However, because their main damage causing abilities are easy to interpret, hunters sometimes have trouble dealing with large groups of enemies even of slightly lower levels. Hunters might prefer to carry particular consumables for special long-ranged shots like flame arrows. The hunter has an aiming system called Focus.

The hunter class tends to dominate the landscape and wilderness. Their unyielding bow skill make them completely unmatched when it comes to ranged attacks. Besides these nonpareil capabilities, their survival capabilities are often used to guide their party mates as well as lay traps for the enemies. Shrewd and adventurous by nature, the hunter tends to lure his targets into traps to cruelly kill them, while hunters extensive knowledge of nature also gives skills that help him and his fellows survive in the wild.

The hunters are skilled enough to defend themselves in melee combat but almost invincible from a ranged distance. As a master of the Archery, the natural-loving hunters can use a barrage of their sharp arrows to cause a deadly effect from a distance. The hunter is the class of choice for players who like to play attacking a target at range and will be available to all the Man, Elf, Dwarf, Hobbit races.
