  1. I'll give the new character a try and let you know, thank you for the inputs
  2. Hello everyone, I'm stuck trying to add a new upgrade for the monk's Swift Strikes. I have read through the following, to no avail : - Modding Basic Concepts - First Mod - Adding new abilities to a class I have created a new ability, Draining Strikes, which is supposed to be a new upgrade path from Swift Strikes. The ability is as follows : The status effects are as follows : I've copied the entire PT_Monk (dc561d91-7bc9-4314-acff-837511566964) entry from ProgressionTables to a new file in my mod folder, and adde
  3. Also, here's an example from global.gamedatabundle, with a script that runs on Game Start (seems to be the Berath Blessing for the mythical adra stone) { "$type": "Game.GameData.NewGameBonusGroupGameData, Assembly-CSharp", "DebugName": "18_Mythical_Discovery", "ID": "83db9af0-fefc-4c63-b3d8-90b7124259e3", "Components": [ { "$type": "Game.GameData.NewGameBonusGroupComponent, Assembly-CSharp", "DisplayString": 61, "DescriptionString": 62, "DisabledAchievementsAndChallengesIDs": [], "WhenToRunScripts": "OnGameStart", "Bonuses": [ { "D
  4. I think a good starting point would simply be the Watcher Abilities. Check how the first one we get is delivered (has to be via a script or at character generation), and walk down from there
  5. OK I just spent waaaayyy too much time trying to change an ability to a Free Action in turn-based. I'm not sure if you know how, so just in case to save you the time : Whether you've got yourself a free action is stored in the Attack definition of the ability. What's a bit tricky is, by default, it's a combination of the attack variation and recovery time You can override it, just like so : { "GameDataObjects": [ { "$type": "Game.GameData.AttackMeleeGameData, Assembly-CSharp", "DebugName": "Smoke_Veil_Self", "ID": "c114f495-e7cb-4be4-b70b-e71c9f9c51af", "Compone
  6. I'm looking the docs all over, for a mod request (make smoke cloud a free action), and I stumbled upon this which might be of interest to you : https://eternity.obsidian.net/game-data-formats/enumerations#overrideattackvalue OverrideAttackValue lets you force the type of attack you're triggering, be it full, primary, or secondary. Just thought I'd drop that.
  7. Hello guys, Remember the old Baldur's Gate days where your monk would gain Armor Class with levels ? Now you can do the very same here in Deadfire. Transcendent Suffering now provides +1 universal Armor Rating at level 1, with a further +1 bonus every 2 Power Levels hereafter. I have not modded the inability for Monks to wear armor, whether you want to play your monk naked à la Baldur's Gate or not is your decision.

  8. Hello guys, I like Monks in POE and POE2. They have OK tankishness, good CC and shine in prolonged combat. While I can understand the balance issue at hand, I dislike Mortification, which prevents me from using an ability all throughout the fight. This mod makes Flagellant's Path, Shared Pain and Launching Kick cost Wounds instead of Mortification. The screenshot shows 3 Wounds, but I've tuned it up to 5 Wounds since.

  9. Meh, that is too bad, thought I had something to help you out here
  10. OK I might be totally off here but, let's give it a shot anyway : Why not make the vanilla abilities you wish to remove invisible ? Just like Monastic Unarmed Training when you multiclass a monk with say a barbarian. The abilities still exist, they just aren't displayed and cannot be picked. It seems there is also a RemoveAbilityID which could do the trick, give your class a passive ability at level 1 which removes whatever you want to go away. See here.
  11. 2 challenges I really dislike : - Wael challenge (or is that Skaen ?) : I mean, seriously, one of the key points of the game (for me, at least) is to see big damage numbers. With this challenge they're just gone, I'm Dark Souls'ing it there, it doesn't feel rewarding - Abydon's challenge : I get the whole repairing hardware thing. I actually loved the iron crisis mod for BG1, which made un-enchanted magic items break. Here however, I need to repair 4 times per dungeon on my tank, the hell is that. The repair rate needs to be reduced very much, or higher tier (superb+) equipment n
  12. I like your reasoning, I dislike your "gods are amoral" bias though Whosoever decides what is moral and what is not ? Whosoever is so self-important they think themselves judge ? The "gods" saw an opportunity for evolution, to become something more, and they took it. Did this opportunity come at a cost ? Possibly. Was that cost worth it ? Possibly. Was it done in service to the greater good ? Possibly (the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few ; in some cultural or political constructs). Is murdering an innocent in cold blood to save millions worth it ? Possibly (see the w
  13. Going to necro an old thread here, for the sake of my fellow Watchers. Anyone wishes to do so, you can possibly swap grimoire spells with the Unity Console mod, available over at the Nexus : https://www.nexusmods.com/pillarsofeternity2/mods/2 The console works just fine on version 4.1.2 (although I haven't tried editing grimoires, I just respec) although some features aren't available anymore since 3.0
  14. Hello everyone, Tired of spending a non-renewable resource on your Swift Strikes ? Thanks to mortimermcmire's quick and efficient guide, I was able to make Swift Strikes, Lightning Strikes and Swift Flurry cost 1 Wound instead of 1 Mortification. I've only tested it for roughly 10 mins (because it's kinda 2AM here and I'm gonna have to work tomorrow at some point ) but it does seem to work just fine, and it doesn't appear to override changes brought by other mods such as Make Swift Flurry Great Again. Mod's over there, enjoy https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi
  15. Well that was concise and efficient. Thanks to you I've finally been able to make Swift Strikes cost Wounds instead of Mortification Anyone interested, the mod's over there : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1675965527 It's 2AM so I'm gonna sign off, but it didn't seem to cause any problem in the 10 mins of testing I gave it.
  16. And Diablo3, and the whole Borderlands saga That is a pretty good idea, however I'm concerned about the difficulty implementing this. There are "hard" caps when it comes to, for instance, buffing a monster's deflection. You go 10 points too high and it just cannot be hit unless you roll a 100.
  17. If this was really January 5th and the backing ended February 25th, there was plenty of time to correct the wording of "Physical Box Copy of Pillars II". You appear to assume that the wording needed correcting at the time. For it to need correcting, someone would have had to point out that there was a misunderstanding. Since party A (the customer) thought they were getting a physical disc and party B (the publisher) thought people knew they weren't getting an actual disc, there was no manifestation of misunderstanding. Everyone went on their merry way thinking all was fine. R
  18. In beta have played them all. But after release, the only class I haven't tried yet is barbarian. The reason being: - Blood Thirst comes too late. - Heart of Fury is available only to single class, and again only in late game. So the question I ask myself is: do I take barb who can save me in the late game encounters like 5-10s of combat via killing stuff faster because of Blood Thirst; or do I take another dps character who is better during first 70% of the game, which is also currently the harder part. Use Mullit-class unlocked mod on nexus Im using that and deadly deadfire
  19. As a preamble, please, let's stick to the topic at hand and not derail this into a balance / buff / nerf thread. There are other, much more appropriate threads just for that. Thank you for your consideration and keeping the thread on its rails. I'll start bros So far, and with the understanding that I only have 180 hours on record, the classes I have not played and why : - barbarian : duh, IDK, I'm just not a huge fan... I think I might give it a try though, possibly with a Rogue, Monk or Cipher multi - ranger : looks boring as f... as hell, just auto-attack a
  20. Might I suggest Blade Turning, so you have something to spend monk resource on while you're standing there, and you do not get hit so much in melee ?
  21. You seem to be taking this personally, when really there is no reason you should. If you like, we can go through your wishlist together and work from there ? With regards to points 2 and 6, that would seem to be included in patch 3.0.0 With regards to point 7, it looks like a lot of people agree with that, one can only hope Obsidian saw that as well. It might even be more effective if you were to suggest examples of abilities you'd like to see ! I don't know, some kind of holy smite light thingy, or condemnation aura that inflicts damage on whoever strikes the
  22. Man that's... erm... deep ? ^^ Would you please expand on that, what did you have in mind ?
  23. He has a point, i tend to never trust "early access" and kickstarter stuff. For exemple, i love FALLOUT and damn i won't pre-order anything before release. Did it twice => Dayz was my first and a big mistake, and i learned IMMEDIATLY from it, then did it for Star Citizen a second time, but FULLY KNOWING i wasn't sure that the product will ever finish, so i pledged the smallest amount to get early access stuff & the game, knowing that the "money is gone". I don't expect anything from supporting a someone/a studio on kickstarter or early access stuff, but on the other hand, the backer
