talent points

Point Credits

Short Name: 
point-credits

Allows you to spend an unlimited amount of class, generic, stat, category and prodigy points by digging into negative values, as deep as you want to.

This addon presents an unique approach to the "I want more (insert type here) points for my character!" problem. Instead of simply adding +N more points to spend each level, it allows you to use as many points as you wish - you'll simply go into negative values if you don't have any points at the moment, effectively "loaning" them. From whom? For what fee? What's the due date? Who knows! Maybe the Eidolon's feeling like doing some commerce, or maybe the divines are smiling at you! All that matters is that all those points are yours to spend *now*! If you want, you can get those elusive talents up to survive in early game and compensate for them later as you level up, eventually balancing out... or get yourself all these cool talents you really wanted to have and learn than the build of your dream will forever be short of 24 generics, 6 class points, inscription and a prodigy. :>

No actual penalties for loaning the points are implemented or intended to be implemented.
No other limits are pushed, either - you'll only be able to do what you'd be able to if you had a couple of extra thousands of points (which is basically how this addon works internally, by the way).

Design premises

While there's already a lot of addons that grant characters more points, they are often found suffering from some significant flaws - like surplus points dangling when all desired talents have already been developed, or still insufficient amount of points despite all the extra ones, or an uneven point gain curve when one's struggling with point deficit in the early game but has a large surplus of unused points in the late game, or the difficulty to gauge the unbalanceness of the current build at a given moment of time... and so on. With point loaning, however, you can have as many or as few extra points as you wish, and always know how strongly you deviate from the intended game balance curve. I love this particular approach, and it is my hope that it will appeal to many other players, as well. :>

Compatibility

  • This addon is designed to be as thin as possible and compatible with virtually any other addons, including the ones that alter level-up and prodigy dialogs.
  • It should also be possible to add this addon to an existing character without any issues.
  • If any compatibility problems arise, please let me know and I'll try to fix the issue!
  • Known possible bug: If an exception arises somewhere inside official point-handling code, the clean-up wrapper will not get executed correctly. That being said, if that does actually happen, you'll most likely have much worse problems than being stuck with a bunch of extra character points - but still, please let me know and I might get to implement a correct exception handler. :>
