Well, some stuff has been going on recently. Been working a lot on it and getting near the end of the mastery-design part, after wich I'll have to do the playtesting and fine-tuning.

With that said, there will probably no more news regarding the mod until the last 3 masteries have been finished. Mostly because the studies will kick in soon enough, also nobody seems to give a flying falafel about the mastery showcases, so I'll save the time doing these for something else, maybe further working on the mod itself.

In short, I'll see you again eventually. I say take care.
That is not true!I am intersted in the mod and I did follow progress,but without commenting or replying or anything like that.The masteries are pretty original,esspecially Aqua mastery,wich will probably be my first mastery,combined with either Necromancy or Time(though there are still 2 masteries to be revealed),because I always wanted to see how an aquamancer class(however you want to call it)plays in an arpg(quite ironic,since I cant swim).Not sure if it will be my favorite mastery though.I rather Necromancy(I always liked those kind of classes).Anyway,if you want to post some updates go ahead.If you want to save time and finish the masteries,again,go ahead.I follow progress regularly(though I check on the forums daily).
About the masteries,will Barbarism be similar to Chaos or one will be tanky while the other one will be more berserk?

Thats isnt 100% truth, most of time people check the work in progress in quiet, prefering waiting when the mod hits on testing phase.
I think many players underestimate their own influence on the modding process. Trust me, a modder can get alot of fuel from simple comments or any kind of feedback. Talking from experience.
WNG, just keep going. I told you what I think about the rest.

Even if I play Immortal Throne version, I follow your progress, probably can't try it, and it will be like that for some time, but observing it and sharing my point of view about every mastery. Its normal part to be demotivated during working for months on some project, but excluding others to participate in your masterpiece is only making a barier between you, your work and everyone who is following your progress.  :)

No one cared about my mod for literally years.

sauruz found it at about 3 or 4 years into development I think. So your biggest fans probably haven't even picked up the game yet. :)

So many people that chimed in on the forums that had ideas I used have been gone for 5 or 6 years. I miss them. It was good to see mountainblade again, though :D

The guy that did Paths mod? He was my "student" in game modding this game because all the truly smart people had moved on like Munderbunny and ASYLUM101.

Good times.

Keep at it WNG, we can have it good or we can have it fast. Not both :D

Besides, what will you do once you are done? Make it last, it's good times.

Sorry for being fed up earlier. An update regarding the mod is long overdue. Also, many thanks @treborx555! I have a playtester trying it right now (though as a melee character) and she's liking it a lot. ^^

So since last time, I've been working on the Time mastery. It is nearly done, I only need to finish its pet skill before posting its preview on this board.

Recently, I've been mostly working on including new items and affixes. In total, there is 117 prefix files and 125 suffix files. Also, every mastery will have a unique suffix that drops on jewelry, that includes a bonus fitting the mastery and bonus point(s) to a random skill in the mastery. That makes 20 affixes per mastery, and this for all 3 difficulties, and for all 10 masteries. In total, it's another 600 more suffix files.

Also, I am working on adding loads of new items. I want to make all damage types viable on all types of weapons and on all stages of the game, more leveling items, obnoxious items, in short, I want a huge variety of items. Take a look at this.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Those items are currently available, but I intend to add a lot more. Anyways, I'll post back when Time mastery is finished.

Thats alot of new stuff added. New items looks nice, keep up bro! I'd never have the patience to make 600 skill affixes...
