I gave it a shot. Plenty of room for improvements though.
In the sea without lees standeth the Bird of Hermes. When all his feathers be from him gone, He standeth still here as a stone.
Here is now both white and red, And all so the stone to quicken the dead
The Bird of Hermes is my name, Eating my wings to make me tame.
First things first- that is amazing! Thank you very much for putting time into making a new class! A definite +rep. But if I may ask, would it be possible to include a sap skill? It'll be below if you decide to add it. (sad thing real quick before I do, "You cannot give reputation to the same post twice." Sorry.) Also, feel free to tweak the skill and/or trait, if you do accept it. Thank you for considering Hermes, and thanks again for putting the class down for everyone to see.
Rank 8 Skill
Aoe Ranged skill, 3 targets(traited to 5)
The Free People have discovered the true power of Sauron's servants because of you, and never shall they know greater evil than those of him or his allies.
Drain target of morale and return to you
139-576 Morale per 4s for 16s
Drain target of power and return to you( traited only)
59-348 Power per 3s for 15s
Cooldown 3m 30s. (to avoid it being an excessively powerful skill) ( if traited, 2m even.)
And those if traited parts are all the same trait- found below as well.
No Greater Evil
Rank 9 Trait
Your fallen foes embolden you to greater feats of strengths and courage. The risks shall be great, but the rewards greater!
Cower, Fools! adds 2 targets, drains power from the target and returns it to you, and lowers the cooldown by 1m 30s. The cost of the skill is ,however, higher , taking away a full 316 morale as well.

Reason: Forgot something
Never enjoyed the burg class in em so I'm just using him for sparing now and then to learn the class properly. Hunter was my first class and my burg is less then 6 months old at the cap. Maybe you thought some other burg was me?
Burg is an easy class to play in moors once you learned to use all the skills but I believe it was even easier before I leveled him up.
Warg is ezmode? It might be easier then hunter(unless you are a raid baby hunter or a Rave hugger, hint hint) but I played my warg before U6 also. I hit r9 two days after that update. Pouncing from stealth and end up dead was more common then to actually get some infamy back then. Oh sweet revenge!
Rk's and minis are not OP but godmode and I could never get myself to level up one. I should have been more spesific and say that casters are ezmode. I do have a WL, it's a tactical class(I think) but sure isn't ezmode.
I agree you don't have to be a tactical/caster class to be easy mode. (ref: champ and burg). But don't say playing any creep class is easy mode. If a freep get farmed by wargs it's usually because there are 10+ wargs against 3 freeps. Often most of those wargs usually play on freep. lol.
Maybe thats why I spent so much time on reaver and wl lately :P
Take it easy Reapor. Right now Im having a break from the game for some strange reason but cya when I get my motivation back. Maybe I log in now and then but lets see..
Its nice to have a break, I took one for 3 days a while ago
Btw, yes I`m often in Raids, I often lead them, for me its what LOTRO is all about, grouping , chatting having a giggle, I much prefer being part of a group, soloing is okay for short periods, but its kinda lonely. Plus the current lack of surviveability on Hunter makes it lame to solo (in my opinion). I dont hug Rave, yep I`ve been healed by him and other healers, but I dont ask for it, although I am thankful.
Why not put this in suggestion part of the forum. it would get more attention there and also stop trying to get rid of wargs they are essential to the storyline without them there can be no warg riders and it will not make any sense if they just get rid of wargs. also if you complain enough they will only update to shut everyone up.
