Sapper

Short Name: 
sapper

Description

This addon adds the Sapper as a playable class. As it is a Tinker, it will require Embers of Rage DLC to work.

Sappers use their knowledge of steam weaponry to build construct that will fight your foes and destroy the walls of their lair.
They have an automated onarger, serving as a permanent ally. They can manipulate the terrain by digging tunnels and creating impassable pits.
But they are also trained for short range combat and will not hesitate to stick their pickaxe in their enemies' skulls.

They have 9 class trees, including 4 locked ones :
- Battle Machinery
- Siege Engine (new tree) : build 3 different temporary construct that will attack your foes and protect you
- Onager (new tree) : build a permanent construct that will follow you, hurt and disable your foes, and help you reposition
- Tool Combat (new tree) : join the fray, using your knowledge of tools to deconstruct your foes' equipment as you fight, or hit your construct to temporarily improve them instead.
- Death Tools (new tree) : use the carnage of the battlefield to your own advantage

- Trapping (locked)
- Automation (locked)
- Sapper (locked, new tree) : control the field to improve your odds of survival
- Steampunch Arts (locked, new tree) : find new inventive ways to punch your enemies in the face, or embed a pickaxe in their skulls

They have 6 generic trees :
- Combat Training and Survival
- Physics and Chemistry
- Blacksmith
- Engineering

Raider

Short Name: 
raider

Adds the Raider sub-class, a versatile mid-range fighter who wields a sword in one hand and a steam gun in another. Disperse clouds of gunpowder and detonate them in brutal chain reactions, or lay low your foes with shotgun blasts.

Steam Witch

Short Name: 
steamwitch

Adds the Steam Witch, a Tinker sub-class. The Steam Witch was born into time magic but found the ordered ways of the Wardens boring and struck out to find a path of their own. Travelling through time and space they found an affinity for technology and integrated their time magic with steam mechanisms.

Steam Witches are a ranged attack and spell casting class. Their tl;dr description is ‘magical Psyshot’. Class highlights:

Mystic Combat: Steam Witches fight with a steamgun in one hand and a dagger in other, projecting ranged dagger attacks when attacking with the steamgun. Successful dagger attacks will trigger additional effects based on a selected Touch ability (possible magical attack, magic enhancement, or lifesteal regeneration).
Timegear: Use steam-powered devices that are infused with magical effects.
Hexes: Cast hexes on enemies to render them vulnerable to damage types. Later abilities add damage-over-time and effect vulnerabilities to hexes, plus a special attack based on the hexes a target is afflicted with.
Witchbrews: Customize your character build with one of three Brew sustains that enhance either combat, magic, or steampower.
Future Relics: Activate powerful offensive and defensive abilities that require a turn and a large amount of steam to charge up.
Time Magic: Phase away from enemies, deflect and delay damage, repair your timeline, summon a spider familiar, and create walls out of thin air! Be careful though, as Steam Witches lack the rigorous training of Chronomancers and thus do not benefit from and have less control over Paradox.
Clockwork Menagerie: Command an array of mechanical creatures just short of a winged monkey with cymbals.

      • 1.2.0 Update: Extensive talent tree modifications/additions; new character creation required for talent changes.

Requires Embers of Rage to play.

Tinker Implants in Shops

Short Name: 
tinkershop

This addon will add tinker implants and schematics into infusion and rune stores. Orcs DLC required, of course

Short Name: 
enforcer

Adds the Enforcer. Armed with shield and steamgun, the Enforcer utilizes suppressive fire and crafted grenades of all types to permanently remove foes.

Talent icons are from http://game-icons.net/ , cass icon is from https://opengameart.org/content/painterly-spell-icons-part-1 .

Galvanic Alchemancer

Short Name: 
galvanic

Adds a new subclass for tinkers. Galvanic Alchemancers bridge the gap between the roles of Alchemist and Tinker. Due to the nature of their art, Galvanic Alchemancers learn alchemy and magic that is associated with lightning, though they can study other fields as well.

Unlock Tinker Escorts

Short Name: 
unlock-tinker-escorts

Unlocks Tinkers Escorts in the main campaign by "removing" a single line.
This will not do anything without EoR installed and will not make any difference if you already unlocked tinkers in AoA the regular way.

Inferno Forger

Short Name: 
infernoforger

Adds the Inferno Forger, a tinker class. As steamtech swept over Maj'Eyal, some mages adapted to it. Similar to Psyshots, these so-called Inferno Forgers use steampower to enhance their own powers - in this case, fire magic.

Weapon Schematics for Tinkers at Birth

Short Name: 
weaponschematics

Adds class-appropriate weapon schematics to the birth definition of Tinker classes. Requires Embers of Rage DLC.

Based on a suggestion by Mel.

Brawler Weapon Tinkers on Gloves
