RIP Radiance...from the LOTRO Lorebook dev diary by Orion:
Update 2: Radiance Removal
By: Allan ‘Orion’ Maki
A Good Idea
Radiance was supposed to be a statistic that had both appeal and function for players. We wanted to not only itemize this statistic, but also tie it into skills and deed paths. We wanted to provide players with more character customization and differentiation as they moved into the upper portions of the game. Further, by tying Radiance more intimately into the progression of the character, we wanted to remove strict gear dependencies and provide a more encompassing and meaningful statistic for characters. In essence, the idea of Radiance was a large and inclusive statistic that provided players with something functional and inherently desirable to their character.
The intent was there. The desire was there. We knew what we wanted to do and we knew that it was not a bad idea.

Anyone and everyone can feel free to disagree with any or all of my opinions and observations whenever I rarely post them; it doesn't bother me one bit. Just know that I'll likely never respond to YOUR disagreement or personal attack, because I know better than to argue with idiots, especially upon internet Forums. See what I did there? -- Dinidain
