  1. If you like the Druid of Neverwinter Nights @Jayd then maybe my Shifter Mod could be of interest for you. More forms, tons of new spells and crazy combo potential. If you think its OP then use the "Ultimate Evolution" to double the fun (and/or pain). As i moved on to other games there wont be any updates in the near future...

    Anyway: Have fun with the Shifter! ;)

  2. Yeah, you might be right @asnjas but we are not Obsidian and we dont have to reach specific sale numbers. As part of a huge modding community we are free to evolve a character - in this case the Shifter - into something we want him to be. :)


    But why should a Bear or even a Dragon form not be a powerful melee combatant? I agree that the Mod pushes the limits very far making the Shifter a powerful fighter and a potent spell caster - thats why we started to tone him down in the last time while also offering several optional files so every player can decide on his own how big his powerlevel will be. There will always be people complaining about something but - hey - you dont have to play the mod. If the reworked Shifter does not suit your style: Pick something else and have fun with it. We on the other hand had tons of fun playing with the Ultimate Evolution (and Deadly Deadfire) as nearly every group fight was a walk on the knifes edge. However: Happy hunting! ;)

  3. After a lot of tweaking we finally released the "Ultimate Evolution" for all those crazy solo players who think that the new Shifter is far too powerful (yeah, he is to some degree). :w00t:


    If you like to suffer +100% damage while only dealing 50% to all enemies this will be your new dream setting (or maybe a neverending nightmare)!  :devil:


    But isnt this a complete overkill you say? Nope it isnt! We have tested the Mod until lategame and nearly all fights (except Megabosses) will be doable and - even better - should be really challenging. So expect to suffer "a bit" until exploring all those crazy combos that only the Shifter can pull of. Combat will be thrilling and will require some good planning but - hey - playing without getting sweat just isnt fun - no? :biggrin:


    If you prefer to slay all opposition by just looking at them: Dont touch this! ;)

  4. Single Class Shifter is my personal fave in this game. Well. To bemore precise: Its big fun playing it but - cough - its even more fun modding it into the exact spot i want the Shifter to be. It has been nearly five months since i started this journey and - well, well - there are still a lot of ideas that are waiting for manifestation. :)

  5. I finally reworked the base damage of all animal forms to make them a little bit more unique:


    - The Bear Claws now deal 15-21 crush/slash damage
    - The Cat Claws now deal 11-17 slash/pierce damage
    - The Boar Tusks now deal 13-19 slash/pierce damage
    - The Stag Claws now deal 15-17 pierce/crush damage
    - The Wolf Claws now deal 11-21 slash/pierce  damage
    - Reduced the Dragon Claw damage from 16-26 to 16-22 crush/pierce


    I also implemented a new feature so the size of all animal forms will scale with Power Level. This means: All "Elder Forms" grow for +10% while the "Dire Forms" grow +20% bigger. This fits well with our theme that the high tier forms not only get more powerful abilities but will now also look more badass.


    Not to forget: The size of the "Forest Lurker" now also increases by +30% while its spellcasting ability will be disabled. Poor Lurker!


    Good hunting! :dancing:

  6. Shifters do not recieve any bonus from weapons or armor as they are using their own unique sets that scale with your character level and will get quite powerful in lategame.


    Monk+Shifter fists do not stack but this combo is still pretty good. Devoted is one of my favourites and thanks to the mod its bonus will now work with animal weapons.


    I do not recommend the turn-based-mode for this mod as so far the abilities - for whatever reason - seem to be broken and i dont know if i will get the time to fix them.


    Good hunting! ;o)

  7. The Shifter Mod has evolved a lot since the last post here and thanks to constant feedback it has become better and better.


    Things we have accomplished so far:


    - Added 22 unique talents for much more utility in combat

    - Added 25 new spells and reworked many vanilla spells

    - Each Animal Form gets four abilities and unique passives

    - Multiple Shifts for each Animal Form that will reset abilities

    - "Spiritshift Shark" with unique passives available at PL 3

    - Added a spellcaster Form called "Natures Prophet" at PL 5

    - Introduced the "Forest Lurker" at PL 7 with bouncing attacks

    - Put in Mant2si´s idea of a really powerful Dragon Form at PL 9

    - Added several optional files to give players maximum flexibility

    - Added a german, polish and russian translation


    Too bad the polish and russian translation are outdated as my community supporters moved on to other games. So if there is anybody who can update these: You are welcome!


    We are also still lacking some kind of showcase videos that puts of some crazy shifting combos. So if there is anybody out there who is willing and able to do that: Would be great!


    The last patches tried to rebalance lots of small things but we are always happy about new ideas for improvement. A spell or abiliity is missing? Just let us know what you want to see!

  8. Mukurome has done a complete run with Ghost Heart/ Shifter but he used the Shifter Mod where spells like Eagle Eye (+20 Accuracy) and talents like Beast Master (+15 vs Beasts) will boost your total Accuracy into the sky. It was even enough to kill some Megabosses. Personally i nearly always push Dex, Per and Int when playing any kind of Shifter but - at the end of the day - its up to you. So if you are not going to play on highest difficulty with something like Deadly Deadfire Hardcore Edition (nearly) anything should work regarding attributes. ;)

  9. The differences between the animal forms are - like you already said - that they get different passive and active abilities to make each one more unqiue.


    The Bear also has better Armor Rating (10+4) while the others "only" get 8+4 Armor Rating.


    The Cat also attacks faster (3.0 second recovery time) while the others have 4.0 seconds.


    I also thought about changing claw damage for each form but so far i left this one untouched.


    If things get too difficult you can always fall back to the optional files for more Armor Rating, getting even the Tier 3 animals with Multiclass or spellcasting also allowed for animal forms.


    P.S. You can always  take a closer look at all active animal abilities once you have transformed even though some of them might be greyed out as you need to reach specific levels.

  10. That sounds pretty good even though Shifter/Unbroken is quite unusual. But if you are having a blast: Great! :yes:


    At the moment i am doing a lot of rebalancing so expect updates on each day! :biggrin:


    @VictorCreed will soon start a complete solo run with the new Shifter and i will try to coment in the live stream.

    Good hunting! ;)
