All things are made up of four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Everything that has substance has earth in it; everything that has energy has fire; everything that flows or has feelings has water, and lastly everything that involves sound or communication has air. These are fundamental pagan and indigenous principles, that have deep universal roots in cultures all over the world. The elements can be found in many forms throughout Middle-earth, and in virtual Middle-earth the Rune-keeper calls upon these elements to lend power to his skills.
Yeah I know. It’s a rune-keeper in a lore-master robe. Thank you wardrobe. Looks good on him though, but I should get him or my elf rune-keeper their own Moria class robe. Really. But I admit, I have a hard time finding the inspiration to play a rune-keeper, and so my elf is still standing at the gates of Moria without any progress for at least a year. Truth is, I really enjoy playing my lore-master, and my minstrel, and my burglar, and my champion, and my hunter, and my captain and… well, anything except rune-keeper. What is it between me and my rune-keepers that just doesn’t seem to click? I’ve come to the conclusion that it must be because of their squishy armour. Lore-master robes are just much better quality.
