QuickTome: Remove Stat Requirements

QuickTome: Remove Stat Requirements

This addon is part of the QuickTome addon set.

This addon removes stat requirements from talents and equipment. Generally, stat requirements are annoying but not meaningful, because you can just juggle +stat equipment. Other requirements such as being a certain level or knowing another talent are NOT removed.
There are approaches other than removal (like using your base stats, or disabling/removing the talents/equipment if your stats fall below the requirements) but those are much further from the status quo than just removing the requirements.

Special prodigy requirements are also adjusted to eliminate grinding or equipment swapping:
- Damage dealt/taken requirements are eliminated entirely.
- Roll With It no longer requires being knocked back.
- Spectral Shield no longer requires a block value over 200.
- Cauterize, Spectral Shield, and Temporal Form only require casting one spell.
- Blighted Summoning only requires summoning one creature.
- Massive Blow no longer requires digging.
- Hidden Resources no longer requires being close to death.
- Lucky Day no longer requires +5 luck.

Note: In the interest of safety, this addon generally won't remove stat requirements if they are embedded in a function. Also, it will likely fail to remove stat requirements from items/talents added by other addons if those addons are loaded after this one.

Compatibility

This addon is guaranteed to be compatible with the rest of the QuickTome set. If it isn't, that is a bug and should be reported.

This addon overloads the following files:
/data/talents/techniques/techniques.lua
/data/general/events/cultists.lua (just to remove Crown of Burning Pain's cunning requirement)

It will not be compatible with other addons that touch those files.

This addon uses the ToME:load and Entity:loadList hooks to remove any require.stat fields on talents or entities. It also overwrites some requirements and descriptions for prodigies.
