skirmisher evolutions battle skirmisher

killed 26 boses in melee but still does not allow me to select this evolution - I would really like to try this battle evo...

Battle Skirmisher

Any enemy counts, not just bosses. I've just tested it and it seems to be working fine.

I took a peak at your character vault, and it looks like you managed to take the prodigy, after all. Assuming that didn't require save editing or anything, I guess it is working for you as well?

If not, please let me know, and I could look a little deeper, with a bit more information.


Crystalslinger doesn't seem to be working as intended, there doesn't appear to be a way to summon the golem, and it doesn't appear after changing maps either. Also, the proc for the throwing bombs consumes gems from offhand but doesn't actually throw them, it spams the log with "you need to ready alchemist gems in your quiver" but there's no damage in the log. Otherwise, I really like it!

Re: Crystalslinger

I had some time to test it out and was not able to reproduce the issue. I tested with the addons I know deal with archery stuff, Greenwatch, Banished, and Revamp Skirmisher, but still didn't have any problem with the proc.

My golem appeared as expected when I learned the first talent in Golemancy, so no issue there, either.

I'd say an addon conflict is still the most likely problem, but with the likely suspects eliminated, I couldn't even guess what it might be.

If you can narrow it down to some specific situation or a particular addon, I can try to poke around more.

Gnomes, of all things

Without Greenwatch and Banished, I was able to bomb sling. It looks like it's the Gnomes race addon of all things that's messing with refit golems. It was one of the last I checked, cause I thought it was so unlikely compared to Mannendrake's Escort fork, Revamped Skirm, or Arcanum. Used a cornac and Vexamen's Adjustable Levelup to quickly run through the levels for testing.

Guess that one's my fault.

Looks like I screwed up and gave Werekracken the golemancy.lua I used for testing instead of the final one.

Crystalslinger Issues

You should automatically learn Refit Golem when you take the evolution, along with the Interact with Golem talent. You may need to check your spellbook if they aren't placed on your bar automatically.
Bomb slinging worked as intended in testing, not sure what the issue could be. I can take a look, though. Any other addons running, maybe one that might affect weapon swapping or ranged weapon/ammo?

Edit: I believe I found your toon, out if the active addons I would suspect possibly Greenwatch or Banished may be conflicting, but I'll still take a look when get time.

Thanks for trying out the addon :)

Given that Banished (iirc)

Given that Banished (iirc) uses no overloads, no intrusive hooks and no superloads (apart from adding a weapon mastery), I'd suspect Greenwatch. Test Banished as well, though, making sure never hurts.
