Nobody likes to be nerfed. That’s a given. Part of the joy in playing these games is watching your character get stronger and stronger. You kill bigger and bigger things until you’re able to solo the gods themselves. But when the nerf-bat hits you, you can’t solo the gods anymore, and you get the opposite of the joy you felt at leveling up.
But sometimes, nerfing is a good thing. In Lotro, I’m playing this Runekeeper. This chick heals great, deals the best damage in the game, can restore her own mana, and has a number of stunning abilities as well. I find this character to be so strong that I’m actually looking forward to the nerf. It’s silly for both hunter DPS and minstrel healing to be secondary to the same class.
The big question I keep wondering is, “Which will they nerf?” The healing or the DPS?
