Discordant ( + Critic, Kudzu, Primitive, Scorpion, Colossus)

Discordant ( + Critic, Kudzu, Primitive, Scorpion, Colossus)

1) Add Discordant as playable psionic subclass. A psionic tank with death radius around them (think of Mindrot, but less sucky). Wins battle through attrition, melts trash mobs just by standing. Can also spam tele-frags if you feel like it.

2) Add Kudzu as playable wilder subclass. Invasive, annoying, and hard to get rid of. Master of crowd controls and area denials. Cover the world with fungus, lichens, moss, and kudzus.

3) Add Scorpion as playable rogue subclass. Stealthy brawler with poison fist. Pull in your enemy and dethrone them with chain of combos.

4) Add Critic as playable afflicted subclass. High-risk, high-reward, critical-centric class that use feedback pool as life. Overpower your enemy with overwhelming amount of Gestures, or die from receiving too much criticism.

5) Add Colossus as playable race. Artificial giant constructed by dwarves to guard their gold, has some non-living characteristics. Starts on Reknor (dwarf start). A durable race with some drawbacks. Also like gold.

- This is a practice addon intended for personal use, but thank you if you decided to check it out anyway.
- Bonus class: Primitive, master of bump-attack *joke class*

How would you recommend

How would you recommend building a Discordant trying to get off the ground in Insane?

There's two build that I use;

There's two build that I use; max out Discord or Schism tree.

Discord's Mindstorm damage is weak until you can get Dean of Discord. In the mean time, you kill stuff by kiting the enemy inside the Mindstorm radius while walking away from them. Remember that Psionic Form gives movespeed boost with at least 80 psi, so you can run away.

Schism deal more damage and has built-in crowd control effects. With Split Personality, you can pretty much spam it every turn. The random teleports means you can never be locked down, then again it's random so you need to be lucky.

Overall, the class has tons of AoE damage, but lack single target damage against boss (other than Distortion tree)

Discordant

I really like the class, but I am wondering if it might be a bit to strong.

I'm not usually a strong player, and i tend to die alot, so I played in normal difficulty as usual.

I played a Yeek Discordant that became a living GOD, at the end i steamrolled everything, my HP and psi didn't change at all, and I think the last time I used a regeneration/healing inscription was lvl 40 or earlier.
Most things died before I could even se them, and the rest died from either a AoE or a few normal hits.

The character is "Voneie the level 50 Yeek Discordant" if you want to look it over

Try higher difficulty!

Hey, thanks for trying out my addon, and congrats on the win.
Most addons are balanced around nightmare / insane difficulty, since any character can *feasibly* win normal.
Discordant revolves around AoE damage, which is strong against trash mobs. But will struggle against high hp bosses, which is more common on higher difficulties. Also, their early game isn't that great.
Other than that, it's a bit stronger than most vanilla classes, but the same can be said for most addons here.
Cheers.

I'll try

I was just so suprised when everything went so well that i assumed that the class was op :)

time to try for my first higher diff win :D
