Re: What sword are you using?
For the specific build I am thinking of where I use these swords in a raid, I have maxed out or almost maxed out will, fate, food, and equipment. So, I have already added up all the little bits that together add up to nice big numbers. One of the few numbers left is 50 icpr on a sword which I can take or not.
But, if with playstyle I can do without that last little bit of 50 icpr in exchange for 170 morale, I will make that trade. So, I can watch how fast the minis are using power, ie. how much damage the melee are taking, how much power the spells I am casting use, and see at what point in the fight I can draw power which I can't do if I am being interrupted, and if I can do that and not be 50 power short, I don't take the 50 icpr. If I am careless and run out without noticing, then well, I suck.
A current end game Lm can easily run with 5000 power before buffs if they choose for a power hungry fellowship. By easily I don't mean it doesn't take time to get the stuff , I mean there are many ways to get that number in ways that suit each player's preference of play.

In light of the upcoming change whereby all LMs get sword and staff at lviv 40 as a skill, I though this discussion was worth resurrecting. Thought on swords?

I normally use:
But always keep:
on hand for orcs or if I'm in a DPS role.

Dropped off a landscape mob in the Heathfells for me (Level 75 version).
DPS is low, but the other stats aren't bad.

I personally use a fairly rubbish sword that I've probably out levelled really but the best I've seen (for stats rather than damage) is definitely this crafted one lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Weapon:Steadfast_Sword_of_Théo dred (sorry dud link)

I'm using http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Item...d_of_the_Brute (it's really Deadly Straight Sword of the Stoic, but they never got around there to changing them back)

I'm using http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Item...ord_of_Insight currently.
I do have the one a couple of folks mentioned (Ithilwegil) but my Will is pretty high already and my tac mit is capped in raids, so I prefer the crafted one for the crit rating and the extra raw morale.Silverlode Elitist
