[MOD] Diablo 3 Classes + Blood Knight: Patch 4.9 Released

Patch 4.9 Available Now

This patch presents a new mastery: The Blood Knight from Diablo Immortal, a two-handed oriented class focused on chaos, vitality and bleeding damage. Also, 11 new items, a set, a cosmetic set and a new legendary gem. Bug fixes and a few balance changes as always.

Important: Make a backup of any Demon Hunter character you have before playing this new version. Some changes were made to DH files in preparation for the GD Berserker mastery, probably breaking all existing characters (DoM and Grimarillion included).

Note: The mod now uses a custom file for animations. If you notice any missing animation/character freezing, please report on this thread.

Patch 4.9 - Update 1

  • Correction to a (big) mistake related to the new set.
  • Now Blood Knight animations work properly with the Ch’thon cosmetic set.
  • More item support for Blood Knight skills.
  • And many other bug fixes.

Thanks to all bug reports.

Awesome man. I need to get the source files of GD back (modded over them), but once thats done, ill give it a go.

Dude Awesome. Your Demon hunter mod was great, I’m sure this will be good too. :slight_smile:

really cool, i enjoy it :wink:

does this mean there will be 9 dogs?

  • When you reactivate the “Zombie Dogs” skill, only one Zombie Dog will respawn. You need to disband all the Zombie Dogs who are still alive to spawn three new ones. If someone knows how to make it respawn all 3 pets at once, let me know.

If I’m understanding this query, you just need to set the summon skill to have the number of spawns you want in the burstspawn field. For example, if you want level 1 to spawn 1, level 6 to spawn 2 and level 10 to spawn 3, you would have your ‘burst’ array looking like this:

That wouuld make levels 1-5 spawn 1 dog, 6 - 9 spawn 2 dogs, and 10+ SHOULD spawn 3.

Each Zombie Dog summon 1 Damned Dog (3 in total). Sorry for not making it clear at description.

At all levels, the burst number is 3. It always spawns 3 dogs at once when you use the skill for the first time. The problem is when you reactivate, it ‘kills’ one dog and spawns another one, instead of killing all of them and spawning 3 new ones at once. :confused:

What is the limit? Is it also set to 3?

FileDescription,Spawns pets at the caster. Pets can have a life timer,

The best things about the best class in d3(imo) put together wonderfully in a better…waaaaaayyyyyy better game…made my day, thankyou n beautiful job. /e brofist :cool:

Аre there new items in the mod to support new masteries?

Looks great. I honestly never thought the modding community for GD would reach these levels so quickly. I certainly hope Crate’s development team are watching these threads with great appreciation for what the community is capable of.

unfortunately, I haven’t learn how to create new items yet :undecided:

Easiest way I have found is to copy an existing item and make modifications.

I like this mastery so far, it’s a pretty good job.

Except for one thing that could be tweaked a bit: The Queen spiders.
I like everything about it but the fact that it’s slow to get into the fight because of two small delays that add up:
-The “throw jar” animation takes a bit of time but it’s cool as it is.

  • And the spiderlings summon animation.
    Only then they start engaging mobs, and ideally both could use overall faster animations or at least the latter.

Don’t know if it’s something doable, but it would suit the fast pace of the game better.

Well, it’s about a spamming skill, these delays are kind of necessary, but you’re right about the spiderlings. I’ll increase their spawn animation speed on next update :wink:

So… stupid question, but…

Do all the summons, inlcuding the temporary ones, scale of pet bonuses? None of them say.

Also, wheeeeree isss myyy gargantuan?!?

It seems to me Zombie Dogs to be overpowered for start of game.

Hi, great Mastery, I’ve player 840 hours of GD and it’s my first pet build ^^

I think it could be useful to state everywhere it is the case “scale with pet bonuses”
