Went through the map and found every obsidian rock I could (and added a few) and then added an invisible monster near it.

The monster has a 5m attack aura that does offensive %3 current life like deathchill, %3 mana burn and has a 10% chance to confuse, frighten or convert pets.

It cannot be dispelled of course :)

Added +4% run speed reward to Flight of the Messenger quest in act 4 Elysium.

@sauruz I agree, but as I add more quest rewards I will have to be careful to monitor the total resistance value. No worries, just a note to myself.

@nargil66 Oooh! That has possibillities!

EDIT: Is Charon's Oar a spear, club, sword or staff?

Thank you.

If this is all accurate information, the quest journal, you rplaying experience, the quest files...then there are only 6 quest skills in the questskilltree2.dbr. Out of 25.

Mimer's quest grants 10 intelligence which used to take up 3 skill slots, which I consolidated to 1 (MODDERS NOTE: I tested and verified that quest skills ARE affected by +1 to all skills buffs). Then there are 3 skills that are needed for spawning NPCs and summons for 3 different quests.

I removed all the race defense skills form the quest skill tree.

Which frees up 20 slots for other things :)

And I have only used 14 out of 25 in the vanilla quest skill tree as well.

Lots of room now for new quest skills.


I created a MI sword called Ragnarok for Surtr to drop. It has only a level requirement so any class can use it. +2 skills, casts eruption on attack. Sweet :)

I wonder if +3,+5,+7 is too much resistance to give for a quest reward now. Oh well, it is a work in progress. I may edit them as I add new quest rewards.

Better two +2 rewards than one +3.

I moved the proxies there to prevent that from happening

lost souls are undead and ghosts yes...they are like some kind of zombie ghost

I buffed the fungoid brutes a bit, but they are technically much stronger and better armored and have more life than regular fungoids. You are just a brute killer :D

changed the sprites to demon

Added 3,5,7% Energy Leech resistance to the Beggar's Homes quest in Memphis.

Added 3,5,7% fire resist to the Lost Brother quest instead of flat skill point.

Gave the skill point to the staff of khufu quest.

added 3,5,7% cold resist to the giant yeti quest

added 3,5,7% lightning resist to the d'ohist mage quest



Question, as I haven't completed many side quests in act 5.

Is there a quest that grants you a choice of racial defense?

According to the quest skill tree in the x2pack, there is supposed to be a whole bunch of racial defense skills as a reward for the cauldron pieces quest. The quest file simply gives you some xp and a crappy staff though.

The quest skills are specifically named xsq24 which is the cauldron quest, named xsq24 in the quest files.


EDIT:
I updated the "surrounded promethian" quest a little. You now receive one unique item from act 2 for each difficulty.

However, I created a giant duneraider assassin miniboss you have to kill first.

I also expanded the little area to give you more room to run away:


The yellow circle is where she used to stand, the red circle is where she is now waaaaaaaayyy back there.

I think I could replicate the forge quest for the Delphi secret shop. I could just remve the merchant qualities and maybe make a new quest to go get something in act 2 or a new dungeon he gives you a key to.

But it would be a matter of copying the quest that controls the forge quest in act 5, I just have to copy it and change a couple things.

Thank you for this mountainblade, helps me keep track.

I have added +5%, 7% and 10% bleeding resistance to the act 4 Create a Diversion quest where you defeat the Melinoe Blood QUeen. (She stil needs some buffing)

Added +3%, 5% and 7% energy leech resistance to Egypt's Beggars Homes quest and removed the yellow ring reward so you still get an arcane formula and the resistance as well.

Ill keep everyone updated as I go.

Oh and mountainblade, what do you mean by "heal bonus" as opposed to flat HP? Like a permanent health regen bonus?

EDIT: Something I've wanted to do for years....instead of taking the staff to the corrupt power hungry high proest in Memphis, why not have an option to take it to the beggar and give it to him? Vive la revolucion! :D

Then when you talk to Zazamankh again he screams and attacks you ha ha!

Then on game load, the old beggar is now standing where Zazamankh was before! ha ha

And you could still do it by giving it to Zazamankh...say getting a intelligence boost, or if the beggar getting a strength boost or something.

Okay, quest update so far.

Olive branch quest gives +3% elemental resistance in normal, +5% in epic and +7% in legendary.

Skeleton Raider Brothers quest in Megara gives +5% vitality resistance in normal, +7% in epic and +10% in legendary.

Xanthippus staff fetch quest gives +3% poison resistance in normal, +5% in epic and +7% in legendary.

I added tags to teh initial quest dialog in the "reward item text" slot that describes the different values in each difficulty. The final quest journal entry includes a disclaimer describing the rewards for every difficulty since I can't change the journal entry based on difficulty in the quest editor to my knowledge. Just the one global journal entry for all difficulties.

Yep, the Melinoe sword had that text in the level requirement slot, too.

So I did a search and replace for that text and replaced it with "0". If that was the problem, it isn't any more. :)

I think I will start overhauling the existing quest rewards for this today.

This means that existing alpha tester characters quest rewards will go POOF. Oh well. I figure sooner of later, everybody is going to hate me anyway, why not today?  >:D

Maybe, but not the obvious maybe.

Back in the day a long time ago, I downloaded a template mod where someone (can't remember who) updated all the template parameter information flavor text for all the templates. In the art manager, you could select View --> Descriptions and the flavor text the modder implemented would show in a column next to the parameter names.

In a couple, he placed the flavor text in the default value by mistake.

Both these items had flavor text descriptions in the template level requirement value slots.

Maybe some change in AE engine vomits when it sees "Level requirement for item" instead of a number? I removed the offending text from the items, that's all I can see that's different in these two items right now.

Took time today to add mystery shrines to act 5. I had just put in some from other acts, but I created all the shrines needed for all of act 5.

While I was at it, the loot shrines now have a guaranteed unique drop for that act and difficulty.


As for the mastery +%damage per level, there isn't any fractions so it goes from 11 to 11 to 12 to 12 to 13 to 13. Imagine +60% damage for level 100, I don't think so.

Tagnotfoundskill from a shrine ( i belive it was necromancer ?) inside of that tomb
Fixed, thank you.

-Anouran MI ( bramblewwod bow and Mbuti advocate) cannot be sold
There is no setting in ArtManager that would allow me to set a bow or spear as "cannot be sold" that I am aware of.

I would have to set it to "quest" in the actor variables I think. Which they are not. I have no explanation for this bug.

-Warfare mastery at lv 45 lost physical damage bonus, is this intended ?

I don't understand. Here is the actual physical damage boost for warfare mastery per level, all 100 levels:
0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;5.000000;7.000000;9.000000;11.000000;11.000000;13.000000;14.000000;16.000000;17.000000;18.000000;20.000000;20.000000;22.000000;23.000000;25.000000;26.000000;27.000000;29.000000;30.000000;31.000000;32.000000;34.000000;35.000000;36.000000;38.000000;39.000000;41.000000;41.000000;43.000000;44.000000;46.000000;47.000000;48.000000;50.000000;51.000000;52.000000;53.000000;55.000000;56.000000;57.000000;59.000000;60.000000;61.000000;62.000000;64.000000;65.000000;66.000000;68.000000;69.000000;71.000000;71.000000;73.000000;74.000000;76.000000;77.000000;78.000000;80.000000;81.000000;82.000000;125.000000

level 45 = 11.000000;

Again, I have no explanation for this.

-oh my, i could defeat King Dorus, but he is very very deadly , even with capped lighting resistance, i think the wisps he summons deal alot of dmg, not sure

Well, I guess I could increase the loot ha ha :D

I found the balance to be much better than in previous version - I think due to a lot less stun from enemies. It hasn't been easy, but few things have felt impossible. (Gorgon slayers in acropolis out regen my damage, Glorburg boneraiser ratman hero shotgunned me like crazy with his staff.) not sure if you want the mod to be easy enough to beat without pets but I am enjoying it. The added character levels and post 40 bonuses will likely go a long way to make no pets possible.

Hmph. You sound like one of these people with well thought-out, practical ideas. Oh, and your personal hygiene is probably above reproach.

Well, I don't need you! I have a better idea!

Since the Slayer buff is loosely based off Hunting's Herbalism and meant for poison resist, I simply changed the life regen to the same amount as the poison damage from Rogue's Envenom  Weapon. Also added a poioson resist boost per level as well.

Will the olive branch collecting quest be coming back? Or was that the effort that utterly broke your spirit and left you as an empty shambling husk where once a man stood?

Quests that have rewards that permanently affect your character are always 10x more satisfying and rewarding than exp and gold. Not sure how difficult it is to switch up rewards but I have... thoughts on the matter.

I probably suggested this before but getting random resistance from the proper offering can be really irritating (fire resistance as an earth character!) instead of 5+7+ 5(all) i suggest 2(all)+3(all)+5(all). similar amount and more balanced. If you want to give psn resist to characters i would say add similar amounts to poisoned spring reward or xipphuluis the healer. If you really want to go crazy, give poison resist to poison spring in lieu of HP, and then add small hp rewards (5-10) to lots of different sidequests, to really encourage completionism. As I understand it quest bonuses are just questtree skills getting points added to them, so it would be possible to increase them by these smaller set amounts, correct?
That's just my thought as I sometimes zip by sidequests that arent on the main road if they only offer exp and gold. (skeleton raiders I am looking at you)

Yeah, the random reward is also extremely overcomplicated in the ArtManager and Map and quest file. There are literally FOUR proxies in the map for Arachne.

Simple elemental resist would be SO much less complicated.

Xanthippus could have the poison reward. Especially since Goblinsnatcher is in the same cave.

The Skeleton Raiders and Salt Mine quest in act 5 could offer some small vitality resistance.

The Melinoe Witch quest in act 4 could offer bleed resist.

I liked your toned down version of shield recovery from the previous version, but would suggest sticking in the adrenaline tree like underlord had it. Give that tree more of a reason to live.
Oh okay, never thought of that. I had it in the Battle awareness tree. Okay.

EDIT:
Okay, put Quick Recovery at  tier 3 as a modifier for Adrenaline. I added the cooldown of Resilience to it as well and moved Defensive Reaction back to tier 5.

I removed one of Shield Maiden's passive proc shield skills and just made her nerfed version of Pulverize her only shield proc she gets at level 8.
 
I nerfed her passive base resists a bit.

Also removed the elemental resist from her defense modifier skill and substituted fire & cold, she still has her lightning vulnerability this way.

I was playing around with Shield Sling and it was way OP. So I nerfed it and gave it a cooldown. I forgot I had it set to 1 second for testing. Increased the mana cost.

BlackSerpentSun suggested that Quick Recovery would be better as a passive in the Battle Awareness tree.

I only play full petmancers so it doesn't make a difference to me either way, I just assumed ppl would like a "boss killer" button like in vanilla so I kept it as a toggled buff.

What do you think?
