Class: Evoker

Class: Evoker

This adds a new Evoker class which is both corrupted and cursed (though it shows up under Defilers). They are a magic class that does blight damage and evokes a demon to serve you.

It is possible for you and your demons to help or hurt each other with some spells and skills. Learning how to work with and around your minions will be key.

NOTE: This addon requires that you have the Ashes DLC active.

You sacrifice 10%% of your current health to send out a pulse of demonic energy in radius 10.
All minions in the pulse gain 25%% global action speed for %d turns and the pulse will attempt to daze all foes for %d turns.
You also use your knowledge of the demonic arts to passively obtain unlife, making it so that you only die when your life reaches -%d.

Initial release

Took out Demonic Possession and added Demonic Pulse. Moved Improved Summoning to the 4th talent to be the capstone. Cut total hate pool down to 25. Added a hate cost to Demonic Pulse and to the Summon Demon sustains. Reduced max_life from 110 to 90. Improved class description.

New cursed/diabolical generic tree that replaces cursed/dark-sustenance. Moved Demonic Pulse to Diabolical tree and replaced it with Flame Fury. Made demon kills grant the player 1/4 of the hate for the kill. Changed Duathedlen skills to take out stealth. Added more sacrifice health costs to skills.

Fixed typos. Reduced sustain hate cost on demons and added a hate gain to Demon Portal to address resource starvation on tough single target fights. Changed the range on Demon Portal to scale with talent points. Tweaked the talent icon for Speed Demon.

Fixed some talent descriptions.

Gave Imp and Wretch movement talents. Fixed demon equipment so they don't spawn with antimagic items. Toned down demon chance to get egos on equipment, made level in Improved Summoning increase the chance.

Reduced pre-req for Blighted Summoning to apply to demons. Fixed imp sometimes missing equipment. Fixed ego chances for demon equipment. Increased imp defense. Gave dúathedlen a regen talent. Added out-of-phase to Demon Portal. Set demon speed equal to yours. Took out some preset talent points to let you spend them as you want. Made Evoker life rating equal to the highest mage (alchemist). Balanced imp phase door. Some hate balancing.

This is an overhaul of the class because it didn't feel as good to play and balanced as I wanted it to.
- Increased max hate a little. It's still a small pool, but doesn't feel as punishing.
- Increased the level and stat requirements across the board for the Diabolical and Demon Summons trees. Now new demons and levels in Improved Summoming feel special.
- Took out both shadows trees and Black Magic. Added Darkness, Vim, and Doom Covenant (locked) trees. Locked Fearfire. Took out Torment so that you have to wait to use higher vim cost skill until you have more vim in your pool, or use your life with Bloodcasting.
- Made demon summons immune to fear and tweaked their life, armor, and defense to give them a bit more survivability.
- Changed demon summons to start off tiny and grow as you level which is fun with Nekarcos's Visible Size Categories. Without Nekarcos's addon the dúathedlen and uruivellas will be graphically very large even if their size=tiny.
- Changed the Imp's Improved Summoning skills.
- Toned down Improved Summoning so that demons only get one skill with the 1st point, improve that skill with the 2nd, get a second skill and improve the first skill with the 3rd point, improve them both with the 4th point, and get a third skill and improve the previous two skills with the 5th point.
- Changed the wretch to an uruivellas (minotaur-like demon) and gave it a 2Her to help differentiate it from the dúathedlen (shadow demon).
- Fixed the dúathedlen image.

So, I really like this addon, but I noticed a few odd things:
This class starts with base 25 Hate instead of the usual 100 (a mere 15 when sustaining a demon summon), this means they'll heal much less than other classes thanks to Unnatural Body, (combined with the self damage to activate a few of their talents and it seems a little silly). They also tend to struggle to gain Hate (at least in the early game) since the only way to do so is to kill, and they use Shadows to fight, which costs Hate, so they end up losing more Hate than gained sometimes.
