View Demon war changelog on page 4 of the thread.

New summons for the ice mage and magician(1.012)
-------------------------------------------
Ice elemental
Uses the cone spell: Arctic shards
Cold resistance reduction aura
As tough as the fire elemental, but has no thorns aura and does not gain power as it fights.

Mana elemental
Artillery summon, fires repeated arcane blasts quickly.
Power aura, providing additional damage for elemental and pure magic abilities.
Mana regeneration aura, small boost to any players in vicinity.
Poor at melee ranges.

Mod Overview
I haven't been playing Din's for as long as I would've liked to, but I found several class combinations and skills rather under par, my aim is to make a mod to rectify the issue.
This is the collective effort of about a weeks dabbling with Din's Curse.
I hope you enjoy my attempt at making Din's a little more fun and diverse.

You can get the mod either from mediafire or from fileserve links on the final pages of the thread.

What's new
This mod is mainly about skill changes and making certain classes more fun to play; there are no new items or changes to drop rates/exp/difficulty.
I have touched on every skill tree, and there are several new skills but I made no attempt to go overboard, I hope most of these changes fit Din's Curse and don't overpower characters.
There are now many powerful hybrids, each class can more or less stand on its own without sacrificing fun.

The readme with changelog is enclosed in the zip file if you're interested, it is also attached to my post.

Installation
Download assetsadd.zip and place it in your din's curse/assets/ directory alongside the other asset zip files. Play!
Although the mod will work with old characters, skills will be misplaced; I recommend you start new characters.
This mod will not work with the demo of Din's Curse.

Mac:
It has come to my attention that the mac version of Din's Curse operates a bit differently; in the event the ordinary installation method fails, try extracting the assetsadd.zip file into the din's curse/assets/ directory rather than just placing it there. The resulting folders should be something like Din's Curse/assets/database and the readme in Din's Curse/assets/ if performed correctly. To uninstall the mod when you have used this method, delete all subfolders of Din's Curse/assets while leaving the three asset00*.zip files intact.

Demon War installation
Download assetsaddexp.zip and place it in your din curse/expansions/demonwar/assets directory alongside the other asset zip files. Play!
The mod should work fully with existing Demon Hunter characters and their respective skill trees.
Also requires Din's Additionals 1.013 to be installed.

Uninstallation
Remove assetsadd.zip from the assets directory.
Characters that you have made or applied skill changes on while the mod has been installed will have their skill points distributed where ever din feels like placing them, it's possible you may lose skill points on certain skills that were vaporized. Characters that you may have logged on by accident should not be affected.

Final Notes
Some of the changes some of you may not agree with, or some may be critically overpowered, some useless; I'm open to suggestions for the future.
Enjoy the finest cooperative hack and slash game since diablo 2 courtesy of Soldak Entertainment.

I don't think skills should be added that are useless for non-hybrids, such as bow skills for the thief and conjurer. If you want to add new bow skills that's great, but please stick to giving them to classes who are actually proficient with bows.
It just doesn't seem fair to the non-hybrid classes to give them skills they can't even use.

I don't think it's a good idea to increase stunning blow. It might sound like a bad skill from the skill description (2% increase? that's nothing! I'd need 50 of them to get up to 4%!) but it's actually +2% base increase, so if you get it to level 20 you have like 41% base chance to stunning blow, and any of the weapons that give +255% chance to stunning blow will knock you over 100% chance to stun. With the skill cranked up like that it's extremely overpowered.

Cool changes though, love the new druid races. I'll give it more of a play and post any other stuff.

Magitek 04-24-2010 12:42 AM

I don't really see any problem with giving classes skills they can't use. The reason I did this was because masteries weren't working with archer skills to begin with, so I decided on a compromise..
Shock bolt is already extremely powerful.. I'm already beginning to wonder if empowered shock bolt was a mistake to begin with. I'm sure someone will let me know if they get to around level 50 or so.
Plague arrow never quite worked how I wanted it to, but I could not keep it in the archer tree, it had to go somewhere.. There was already a powerful synergy with assassin.

As for stunning blow, yeah it's probably not the best idea i've had; I don't have much clue about items, nor their effects later on. I did it so you could use the mini shield bash reliably, I may end up redoing with the freeze effect instead.. just wanted to use stunning blow for something.

I don't think there's a real lot of problem with perma stunning in melee ultimately, the sorceror has no problem perma stunning several targets with thunderbolt... surely a melee class should be allowed this priviledge, considering he has to do it in melee range (unless paladin/trickster/archer maybe?)

Thanks for your input guys.

Awesome Work
 
Nice work Magitek,

I didn't really care that much for Din's until I played your Mod. Keep up the great work.

Magitek 08-04-2010 05:05 AM

Din's Additionals was updated to the 1.04 beta patch.

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?4stdq7xgpm1z8kg

I should mention that the mod is not compatible in multiplayer with players whom do not have Din's Additionals installed. These players will recieve error messages at some point due to the new effects from Din's Additionals. Please inform anyone joining your servers.

Thanks for your support.

Magitek 08-13-2010 06:19 AM

Din's Additionals was updated for the 1.06 patch.
