Much ado about nothing, the Runemaster

The details of the LoTRO Runemaster class have finally been released. I was skeptical when I read interviews where the designers said that the the Runemaster would be more "overtly magical" than the Loremaster. That was worrying, because I feel that the Loremaster already really stretches the lore pretty hard. We are talking a class that can summon beams of light down from the sky to smite their foes, conjure a giant glowing red ent to stomp everything in front of them, or unleash earth tremors that rattle your entire screen. How much more is Turbine planning to push it with the Runemaster? Tactical nuclear strikes from the backs of eagles?

Yeah, well, I think that was a bit of an overreaction. Turbine might be touching the pooch in a slightly inappropriate way, the same way that hugs from that one friend of the family made you feel slightly uncomfortable as a teenager but really never crossed the line. However, they are most certainly not screwing said pooch.
