    After much copy-pasting, frustration, and a level of derp I am sure will haunt me for years to come, I have finally finished my first skill mod!​
    Trickster 1.0.2
    (I have no idea what the numbers mean but it makes it look professional, ya?)
    The skills are as follow:​
    (Start from the center, go up, then make a star shape.)​
    (wait... wut?)​
    Ghillie Suit​
    Hidden Camera​
    The Crazies​
    The Mark of Eris​
    Lurker Shout​
    I would tell you what the skills do but that ruins some of the surprises I worked so hard to script (code?) into the skill set.​
    Plus knowing is half the battle and I kinda want everyone to lose. ;)
    [If you find any bugs let me know and I'll get to fixin' 'em as soon as I am not overcome with procrastination]​
    Any suggestions? Tweaks?
    I am all ears!
    Special thanks to:​

    (Who's wind mage mod help me create my own and saved me a lot of frustration!)​

    Looking at your xmls they're much more neat than mine. My xmls are terribly disorganized and whoever tries to understand them will have to make an effort.

    It looks neat because I did each ability and spell one by one, line by line, to make sure they were working properly. Before that, it was a hot mess and I couldn't figure out which spell/ability was causing the others to not work.

    I'm intrigued by this. Whenever I get some time I'll try it out.

    *sees new mod*
    *suddenly sees my name*
    *"what the fuck did I do?" asks myself*
    *starts post*
    *realizes I should be using >'s*
    *but this isn't 4chan and forgets about it*

    But seriously what the hell did I do?

    I'll give it a try and note you my thoughts tomorrow.

    You made me realize passive stat boost can not be added to abilities.

    Pretty fun so far! Question though, is the Ghille suit effect supposed to be non-removable? Also, I'm thinking Snatch and The Crazies may be placed too close together in the skill tree as one is pretty much an upgrade of the other. Finally, I think it gets a little overpowered near the end, espcially The Crazies since it can do such massive damage and none of the skills have mana costs. However, I guess it gets balanced by how long the cooldowns are? Idk. Overall, pretty good! :D

    Ghillie Suit was originally going to be a passive stat increase and nothing else but couldn't get them to work, but I couldn't get that to work so I made it a permanent buff. I am not sure if I am going to balance this skill because I am currently working on a skill set that is far superior and will essentially replace.

    Ah, that would make sense then. I kept trying to click it off for awhile lol. And, let me know when you get your new skill set up and I will be happy to give it a try. :)

    I'll message you once I got all the abilities set up to a playable level. Also, imma actually take this skill for several test runs to make sure it is balanced, I honestly just put in random numbers for trickster :p

    Sounds good. Looking forward to it.

    Note that passive buffs have been fixed, so feel free to correct Ghillie Suit at your lesiure. :)
  15. Fix it sooner, rather than later plz. I just burned to death on a level five monster zoo where I think I would have been fine if not for being vulnerable to fire. I got a monster zoo where three thermo-blobbies all spit fire at me right after I downed a boss, it was ugly.

    I don't think the demand is high enough for me to fix this, this skill set was essentially a prototype and will be replaced soon.


    I am pretty much done with the new skill set and wonder if anyone would like to help me balance it out as I have a very warped sense of balance.

    Sure, hit me up. :D

    So, no plan for a little tweak of the skills? I like the idea, and I think I'll change something in the xml to make it works at the best.
    Maybe starting with the removability of the first skill. Permanent recastable buffs give me a strange feeling.

    When I try to run this mod, the game crashes saying it cannot load Ghillesuit32.png.

    Any help?

    As much as I hate to say it, Zeke, the help is in not using this skill. The author has already replaced it with Disciple of Eris (I think?) which uses the same skill ID number and is intended to entirely replace this skill.
