While this mod originally was just a release of one individual item set (the Spellslinger), I can’t help but occasionally come up with many others from time to time. Rarely, my laziness subsides enough for me to actually mod one of these ideas together. This is one such time.
I’m updating this mod to be a collection of whatever item sets I may come up with between now and the heat death of the universe. This first update adds the ‘Bladefall’ set to the collection, alongside the pre-existing Spellslinger.
Inspired by a comment made by @RektbyProtoss, I threw together a Battlemage-themed Legendary item set focusing on Nullification, Forcewave, and Trozan’s Sky Shard. It doesn’t have unique item art and the skill effects don’t change from their base colorations (for now) but other than that the set is entirely playable and functional. You can pick it up from the Devil’s Crossing Faction Merchant (aka every modder’s testing station) and give it a whirl.
As with most of my mods, I tried to keep things balanced but original, and worked off a few existing set items for stat-scaling. That being said, it’s still not of Crate’s design nor has it been extensively tested in every regard, so I rather doubt it’s balanced straight out of the door.
Inspired by literally nothing at all, Bladefall is a Blademaster set focused on Phantasmal Blades and War Cry…and Lightning Damage.
It’s a 4-piece set with 5 pieces, meaning you can combine any 4 of the 5 Bladefall items to get the full set bonuses. This is important, as 2 of the 4 Bladefall items are 2H weapons, and they each radically change the functionality of the set. One of the weapons adds many projectiles to Phantasmal Blades but also makes them launch from the player in a 360° spread. The other weapon narrows the base Phantasmal Blades spread to 0° and keeps the default number of projectiles the same. They each also give a marginally-different damage multiplier relative to Frenetic Throw.
While not technically intended, there is enough global Pierce->Lightning conversion on the set to possibly enable one to play with Lightning Forcewave in this manner as well. Pictures of the items below - do note that flat damage values are mostly meaningless, as the character used has exorbitantly higher Cunning/Spirit than anyone will ever achieve normally:
Changelog for latest release:
- Added the Bladefall set.
- Fixed an issue where some Spellslinger items lacked a level requirement.
- Fixed an issue in which the Spellslinger pistol had an unusually high attack speed.
