Yes, thanks! If you have time, think about some class specific passives, like Cipher's

 

 

- Hammering thoughts

- Greater Fovus

- Keen MInd

- Psuchic/ Brutal Backlash

 and so on...

 

Also there are some other abilities sharing one icon: Great Soul / Tough for example.

I'm pretty sure that Great Soul ( + 1 Max. Empower) should have Empower icon

P.S About Two-Handed style. I think, we must reflect both Melee and Ranged weapons on Icon. For now icon is confusing (Large axe) and description too - for example, i was sure it gives bonus only for Melee Twohanders until em... last month :grin:

Like rebalancing godlike passives, making monk turning wheel work with ranged attacks, buff ExaltedFocus and etc? I mean the mod is packaged in bundle so u can install them separately.

Godlike changes don't use the scaling we are opting for. And we also going to buff Exalted Focus in a different way. Although these are easy, and would take like 5 minutes max.

 

Turning wheel change might be handy. In rest I don't see what we could take from there 1:1.

 

Yeah - if you have a good idea for the weapon "styles" I'm all ears. Weapon & Shield Style is ok as it is (just a shield icon) I think.

Nice icons :)

Especially like the "Hold the Line" and "Uncanny Luck".

 

Regarding Weapon Styles:

- 1H - associates with rapier and finesse for me

- 2H - with a two-handed battle-axe. But as Pheno has mentioned, it would be nice to suggest that it works with ranged 2H too. So something like your "Arms Bearer" but with 2H BattleAxe / Bow (or arrow) perhaps?

 

P.S. The current "Snake's Reflex" looks more related to poison appliance)

I know. :) Also the Bull and Bear pictures speak of something else.

 

I think I'll just leave the symbols for Snake's Reflex and so on as they are - since "strongman", "head + brains" and "foot with wings" are the generic symbols for fortitude, will and reflex anyways - and find something else for Body Control and those other abilites which currently use the same icons.

Reaping the Whirlwind is more a joke than an honest approach. ;) Something with a "discipline plus" or "resource plus" icon would be better.

 

I am currently settling on some "generic" base symbols that I want to use for abilities that target reoccurring stats (defenses for example). So that you can guess what the ability is roughly about without reading the description or even the name (best case). Like:

 

- a shield shape for defense buffs (maybe also resistances?)

- that slightly twisted star shape for all Empower effects

- those "stripes" for speed effects - or an hourglass? Depends I guess... erm...

 

I maybe need icons for the generic terms of "resource", "on kill", "on KO", "crit", "graze", "miss", "conversion" and whatnot. A symbol for Power Level. Is there any?

 

What Do you think? Makes sense?

Maybe I shouldn't think too much about it - or I'll never finish. ;)

Yes, i mentioned about Discipline symbol in list, but... i like it)

I think there's no need to dig so far down. You can't pack in the whole ability description into one small icon.

That's right. But once you have a symbol for let's say "crit" it's easier to come up with an icon for stuff like "Improved Critial", "Chopping Wood", "Murderous Intent" and so on. Something to start with. :)

I'm surprised there wasn't a "Redo Soul Whip Cipher Talent". I recently realized Soul Whip has no power level scaling and that made me very sad.

I wouldn't want it to blow out in combination with Sneak Attack on a Mindstalker. That said it would be worth considering converting it from a 20% vanilla damage mod into a 10% raw lash (which would then be doubled by Biting Whip).

Further drafts on passives' icons. Constructive Feedback is highly appreciated. Phenomenum and I are also discussing over PM (and he did some nice work with the backgrounds and the overall "look and feel"), but a few more opinions won't hurt. :)

Putting it into spoiler tags since it becomes rather big now:

 

 

new_ability_icons_v_0_6.png?dl=1

 

 

 

PS: only now realize that the icon for Armored Grace (Armor + hourglass) coincidentially turned out to be the same as that for Refreshing Defense (but with less colors). :lol:

I like the majority of those icons)

Especially the empower related ones. That pseudo-star background really groups them together.

 

Improvement on Tumbling is also noted. And how it is kinda related to Hold the Line, but it's clear that it's different.

And do like also the new Quick Switch.

 

As for criticism, what do you think about adjusting combat focus? Atm it looks a little bit like headshot / suggests a higher accuracy. What if instead of those circles, there were these ones: example. Hmm. Naa.. still headshot.

 

Also some style icons still seem a little of.

- The first thought that came to mind was: you are firing the battle axe the wrong way! :) But it's actually ok.

- Now regarding 1h-style... that hand looks strange.

- And two-weapon style gives an impression that the character has to wield two different weapons.

 

Tbh, dunno what do here. Maybe:

- two-weapon: just have two swords crossed instead of sword-and-pistol

- 1h-style: just have that dagger

?

The feedback I had before when it was two swords (two weapon style): "it should be made clear that it works with melee and ranged weapons". :)

 

I'm not particularly liking two handed and one handed style atm, but I think two weapon style is ok.

 

I chose a skull as an indicator for critical hits. Makes sense or not at all?

 

I agree with Combat Focus. Just can't find a good symbol for "focus" or "concentration".

 

I also need a symbol for "interrupt".

 

For "conversion" (up or down) I'm currently using those arrows you can see when looking at "Critical Defense". I think I want to try a shape with steps or something.

I'm surprised there wasn't a "Redo Soul Whip Cipher Talent". I recently realized Soul Whip has no power level scaling and that made me very sad.

I blame multiclassing for that. Becose Sneak Attack bonus is scaling up to 70% (75% with Prestige passive) and combined with scaled Soul Whip it will be...hm, too much damage.

In fact, most of abilities was nerfed, ONLY becose multiclass sinergies makes them too OP.

 

 

I mean my preferred "redo" is to have it deal lash damage. The more I look at how Cipher is set up compared to the other weapon-based class options the more disappointed I get, and the very existence of Rogue makes changing Cipher dicey.

 

In a perfect world I'd want Cipher to have a skill progression like other martials (many of their abilities are just improved versions of lower tier abilities). But in a perfect world I'd want Soul Whip to count as a shred effect and be a 10% Lash, returning Focus equal to its damage. Biting Whip becomes 20% (maybe halving focus return), Draining whip becomes triple focus return.

Well, 1H-Style is definitely good enough now, in my book :thumbs-up:

2H-Style is also an improvement over the previous version.

 

Weapon Mastery and Specialization: you nailed it)

Brute Force, One Stands Alone, Unflinching: are also great.

 

Improved Critical: the skull is somewhat ok. But that drop reminds me of raw damage icon; and sets a wrong expectation.

Blooded: the raw damage icon here is also misleading. How about a flexing arm (like on Body Control) to denote the damage increase?

Blood Thirst: skull is reserved for criticals no? I understand that there is a different kind of skull, but, hmm. What if it had same icon as Bloodlust but with a flash instead of hourglass?

 

P.S. Looking at that "explosion" on Overbearing Guard. What if it was used for critical hits, and the skull for onKill effects? Or naa?

That "different" Skull is the official Symbol of Berath, God of Death. So I thought it's fitting for on-kill effects. ;)

 

I also tried "bangs" for crits, but the plain skull + gimmicks makes for so much more interesting Icons.

 

Afaik the "raw dmg" symbol is also used for dmg generally in Deadfire - if no type is specified...? That's the only reason I use it. :)

I support Boeroer here - almost all Barb icons looks fine. Need some cosmetic improvements here and there, but generally Boro did a great work. :wub:

 

Someone have any ideas about colors for background in new icons? If not, i'll paint all with acid pink, i swear.
