Qlass Pack

Qlass Pack

Adds several new classes and races:
- Bladebender class: Psionic melee fighter that triple-wields daggers and has "meta" talents that can modify other talents.
- Harbinger class: Wilder melee fighter that channels storms through their attacks. More powerful against groups of foes than against single targets. Their class talents do not use resources.
- The Cooler Anorithil class: Revamp of the Anorithil class that must directly alternate between Solar and Lunar talents instead of managing positive/negative energy.
- Zephyr class: Basically a ranged and exclusively lightning-based version of Arcane Blade. Overpowered, not a serious class, and mostly exists to demonstrate instant projectiles.

- Dreamelf race: Overpowered race that can reposition enemies and shorten talent cooldowns.
- Lich race: Undead race that can convert a portion of all their damage into a damage type of their choice.

This addon also makes a couple other changes to make the Zephyr class work:
- Feather Wind is no longer snapshottable, provides less defense but provides both melee and ranged defense, and its maximum encumbrance is no longer spellpower-dependent.

Other than that, the addon tries not to affect existing classes/races/talents. The new classes won't appear on enemies or Adventurers.

You may freely modify and redistribute this addon and its contents, except where otherwise indicated in the Credits section below.

- Updated for ToME version 1.7.2 (including translation support)
- Changed some talents to mitigate ToME's crit tracking bug ( http://forums.te4.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=51477 ). Talents with non-damaging effects that crit (e.g. Countershock, Solar Shield) now try to preserve previous crit state; other affected talents are detailed individually below.

- Bug fix: Specialty can no longer be used on prodigies

bladebender bug

At high levels (I got Adept prodigy so talent level was about 8) Meditative Focus talent started to call up each turn asking to determine the talent it should work with again and again. The class itself felt okay at lower levels until, after getting that Adept, I achived flat resistance of about 100. That was at about level 30, but probably could get it earlier if not spending so much time and points on experimenting. After that, it was mostly just hooking opponents to me, disarming then mostly bumping even bosses to death. Which reminds another thing: too few active talents to spice up a combat. Just hook-disarm-burst then bump to death. Use speed up for uniques+. Though at lvl 40 it was probably needed only for bosses. Specialties looked interesting, but again, due to low number of critical talents, it soon became appparent that they are only useful for 1-2 talents each... :((

Oh nice, Bladebenders are

Oh nice, Bladebenders are back <3 <3 <3

Boring as hell. All classes

Boring as hell. All classes were already present at forum, and they aren't even reworked particularly good. Zephyr had useful light tree removed, but had not even its variant of weapon mastery done according to 1.6 standard, e.g.

Nice content!

Been a while since there's a good class pack like this, so great job.
Some of the talents are a bit too simplistic, but it's still fun.
I'll be looking forward for more updates!
