Warden skills, animations, and icons…


So I read a thread on the minstrel forums (http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?t=292915) and it got me thinking that it might be nice to show some snaps of warden animations and what our skill icons look like.  So hopefully this will work 🙂  I wish I could figure out what the icon section looks the way it does, I’ve tried a few times to clean it up but for some reason the editor wants to scrunch everything together – but I think you get the idea.

The first section here is a series of snap-shots showing the animations of our more important gambits:

If you look you’ll notice that War-cry, conviction, and our leaches all look similar but our main-hand weapon will have a different glow.  War-cry just shows us shouting, a morale leach will have a green glow to it, and the threat leaches have a bluish glow.

And below I’ve included the icons which will appear either on the warden – I will try to get some better icons, but these were readily available.  The first 4 are our Heal over time (HoT) buffs, by default they are 4 ticks spaced 4 seconds apart but can be traited to last for up to 8 pulses.  The tier 2 is ~56 per pulse, Tier 3 is ~86, tier 4 is 99, tier 5 is 111.  These can also be modified by legacies to be higher but those are the rough values.

Tier 3 HoT

Tier 4 HoT

Tier 5 HOT

These next two are our main defensive buffs:

Small Block buff

Small Block buff

Block and Evade Buff

Block and Evade Buff

And our threat transfer skills – dance of war steals threat from the group and applies an evade buff on the warden and conviction steals threat plus applies a group wide HoT (~100 per tick, same number of ticks as self HoT).

Threat Leach and Group HoT

These next 2 are the icons you’ll see on mobs showing the morale leaches – first leaches ~35 morale per mob and the second 70 morale.  These will last for 16 seconds with a leach tick every 4 seconds.
