From Echoes of Angmar

High in the air he tossed the blazing brand. It flared with a sudden white radiance like lightning; and his voice rolled like thunder. 'Naur an edraith ammen! Naur dan i ngaurhoth!' he cried. There was a roar and a crackle, and the tree above him burst into a leaf and bloom of blinding flame. –J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Fellowship of the Ring".

Is this the class for me?

The Lore-master will be the class of choice for players who enjoy using the power of ancient lore to aid their allies and hinder their foes. Steeped in the history of Middle-earth, Lore-masters are able to aid their fellows in recovering from maladies caused by the forces of the Dark Lord. They can also use their knowledge to daze, harm or hinder their enemies, as well as to give of themselves to strengthen another. Their combat style is anchored in the power of knowledge and using it wisely to defeat evil.
