  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 5 weeks ago

    Do you think the merchant was imprisoned not for ransom but because he called the Assassin Lord "Asslord" and pissed the guy off? I like to believe this is the official story. And it makes it easier to side with the Assassin Lord. "Wait...you called a powerful, dangerous criminal 'Asslord' to his face? You deserve what you got."

    Mod updated and should be far more useful.

  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 5 weeks ago

    Asslord is great to side with. Getting access to the font lets you spend some gold to reroll your RNG on items and pick from a list of new results. This results, generally, in a very reliable (for a roguelike) way to upgrade. You also know when it's coming and you can plan around it. But the items you get aren't the best items you can get.

    The merchant is paying for new gear of a guaranteed quality. It also rolls extra egos. Your odds of getting something useful are not so great. Your odds of getting something absolutely spectacular do exist though. 100% crit chance from 1 weapon? Absolutely in the realm of possibilities. Not likely, but still very cool.

    I go with asslord the vast majority of the time, but sometimes merchant can be nice to mix it up. Also, some classes can't side with asslord at all, so it's nice that the merchant still isn't a horrible pick. It's just not as reliable.

    I find it unfortunate the pre-essence versions of this mod are not available anymore :(
    Personally I can't have a fraction of the fun with the overhauled changes

  • Class: Revamped Wyrmic   1 year 6 weeks ago

    But maybe let wyrmic chars be born with a shield and dual wield weapons in addition to the 2h axe they get?

  • Necromancy+   1 year 6 weeks ago

    Why is it commented out and why does the description not mention it?

  • Personalization   1 year 6 weeks ago

    This was fun. I mean, being able to take Possession talents with an adventurer can lead to massively OP characters, but that's just a matter of choice, and I chose to have fun. I do like being able to possess everyone (well, the Godfeaster boss was immune to being possessed for some reason, but none of the others I've encountered resisted.) One thought, if you feel like doing it -- perhaps a menu option to allow a player to set the cap on leveling so they stop at 50 if they want to?

  • Wilder Balance   1 year 6 weeks ago

    All the changes are dank, though turning stone warden stuff into teleports makes them fizzle in some areas it seems.

  • Outlander   1 year 7 weeks ago

    I personally don't feel there is such as limit. A talent seems to be something fancy, but in computer it is just one bit (or two bits) of data.

    Yes learning from oridinary enemies is intentional. It is just easier (high probability) to learn talents from rare enemies.

  • Heartstalker - Psionic Class   1 year 7 weeks ago

    Although I am not sure how to replicate this bug, here is what happened: I am currently playing oozemancer - removing buffs debuffs and sustains all around. One random rare casted effigy in the middle of a fight on me, I did not notice as I had a lot of oozes around. After fight it does not disappear (maybe I managed to remove some buff/debuff/kill its caster, I dont know for sure). Instead it stays permanently and with -50% - 0% resistances acts as extreme damage sponge/run ender. Class is really fun to play though and I hope you manage to repair this one talent.

  • Outlander   1 year 7 weeks ago

    Thanks for the update, I'm running amok with an Outlander now. Never had to worry about it before, but is there a limit on the number of talents a character can have, before ToME decides to halt and catch fire? An observation - the description says talents from rare monsters may be come available, but I'm getting them from very ordinary varmints like ants, snakes, etc, as well. Intended? Finally, what does the character rank DO? Is it just an otherwise insignificant placeholder count to require five points for the prodigy?

    Holy crap, they made siding with the assassin lord actually good 0_0

    I'm glad I found this little spoiler I would have never found this myself

  • Spell Merchants quickfix   1 year 7 weeks ago

    Hello,
    I've noticed that the Lost Merchant quest also needs a fix, so I'll be doing an upload of a quick-fix of it. But when you have time to upload yours with the fix, changing lvl from 6 to 18, let me know and I'll remove mine, ok?

  • Made it to the Master   1 year 7 weeks ago

    Yeah, when starting out, Adventure mode makes the most sense. It's a tough game, and it only gets tougher after the Master. So give yourself some leeway to make mistakes or walk unknowingly into deathtraps (there are some really nasty ones out there if you aren't willing to spoil yourself by reading up on the game.) Hell, lots of people -- me included -- prefer Adventure mode even after knowing the ins and outs of the game. If you don't have unlimited time to spend playing, it can be frustrating starting from scratch every time you die even when you're playing perfectly. There are always going to be situations where you're just whacked up side the head by the RNG.

    Congrats on making it to the Master. Next time, the best course would be to scan for monsters (if you have an item or talent that can do that), try to clear as much of the level as you can before taking on the Master and, when in doubt, teleport away immediately after killing him the first time. You can rest up and, since he's at full health already, you don't have to worry about him taking advantage of your absence to heal up again. Just remember -- he *will* be coming to look for you, so keep an eye out.

  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 8 weeks ago

    Yeah, no idea how better that was due to not having fully explored Forbidden Cults, so fairly new to me.

    Didn't realize how powerful it was until I read the wiki.

    That's my bad, yeah holy crap...I gotta start siding with the AL now and try it out for myself...

  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 8 weeks ago

    The Assassin Lord is a pretty damned good body for clearing most T1s and T2s. Now that the level requirement for the quest has been raised significantly, you won't be using him to wipe most T1s, granted, but, alternatively, he's scaled up and you do have more Possessor talents trained and can therefore make better use of him (including multiple bodies.) I've cleared the entire West with just the AL's body used judiciously and clicking Shadowstep (to weaken or kill the strongest opponent in sight) and Shadow Veil a lot (though also judiciously.) So killing him has a significant advantage, especially if you're playing higher difficulties (which, as a Possessor, you should be) and are likely to be getting great loot from drops anyway.

    Edit: I do feel compelled to note that I'm just talking main sequence dungeons. You're not going to clear the Elven Ruins or the Ruined Dungeon or the like with the AL unless you're getting serious help from add-ons (which I currently am, just on a lark, by using an add-on that allows Possessor talents to be chosen by an Adventurer, which makes for a seriously OP combination. Don't try to take out the Grand Corrupter with just an ordinary AL possession.)

  • Outlander   1 year 8 weeks ago

    Sorry for the late reply. In the latest release (1.0.2) you can choose whether to learn the skill or not.

  • Summoner rework   1 year 8 weeks ago

    I fixed 'Great Caller' to have proper bonus!
    And the Dragon is not intended to be bonded, so I made it not be selectable by 'Strengthened Bond'. Thank you.

  • Summoner rework   1 year 8 weeks ago

    The talent doesn't mention it, so I'd assume no but maybe you just didn't include it in description. Its a valid target for it, but that's probably because its a summon spell. Also a suggestion, you could make changes for the 'Great caller' Mindstar ( https://te4.org/wiki/Great_Caller ) (if you havent yet). It's stats seem like they would be useless when all the summoner changes in this addon are considered. And ofcourse, great addon!

  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 8 weeks ago

    If you know what you are doing with egos the assassin lord is significantly better. You might get something good with the merchant but you will get something great by rerolling. You can make completely broken items with it.

  • Trapped! is one sided.   1 year 8 weeks ago

    I completely and utterly disagree with this.

    The merchant is SO much better then siding with the Assassin Lord it's unreal.

    Killing the Assassin Lord gets you his loot off his body and experience and unlocks the best shop in the game.

    Shops rarely have anything good but he always has some sort of artefact, and if you're lucky (or unlucky early game) he can sell the blood vial giving you an extra life.

    You also get to craft your own randomized Artefacts, some of which rival and even EXCEED the power of per-determined artefact weapons and armor. Sure, it's not a 100% guarantee to get an upgrade, but this being a roguelike means you're not always going to get that specific item anyway.
