8 Changes Epic Battles Need

Epic battles seem to be a dividing topic in the LOTRO community as they stand.  Some players love them, some players hate them and other players tried the battles and don’t care for them.  I find myself somewhere in the middle.  Epic battles in groups are enjoyable but I think they need a lot of work to come close to other end-game content.  I decided to...
