I'd say a lot of the cooldown-requiring skills/spells compared to this mod have too much recharge time, or not enough oomph.

Also the shield skills of the warden may need a buff also.
I'd hope at this stage in the beta the Demon Hunter's (unintentional) weaknesses still have a shot at getting fixed officially

I don't think it's weak compared to base classes, but it is compared to mod classes.

Ok, valid point. I hadn't even thought of that as an issue, but I can definitely see how it would be.

I don't think Shadow is quite finished with the skills here yet either, however I will still be looking into it.

I will be modifying atleast 11 skills across the 3 skill trees, and I'll probably create a few more to fatten things up. Any lengthy cooldowns will definitely be looked at, because I prefer active gameplay.
Duplicate abilities will probably change to something slightly different while remaining in theme with the character description.

Reaver:
Looks a bit generic skillwise, but is a pretty solid complement to most classes because of it. I may consider removing 1h weapons completely from reaver and giving additional free 2h speed bonuses.

Warden:
In particular I'm not happy with wardens offensive offerings.
I will probably pair all ward skills with an offensive version (shared skill points), as for the shield skills, I'd rather just axe 'em because they conflict directly with the defender and paladin.
If I do leave shield skills in, I will be trying to avoid using stuns and making something different.. unfortunately functionality wise it may be difficult to make anything exciting.

Demonologist:
A pretty solid skilltree all up, although several skills need adjustment; I don't think the functionality exists to fix them properly.

Specifically:
Bloodrage - I want to make this automatic, mashing the button to refresh it is tedium.
Possession - I'd like to add random demon enchantments to make this a bit more unique.
Blood sacrifice - This would be nice as a toggle, with percent life drain.

That should give you an idea of my current thoughts anyway.

Default New Summons

Thank you for adding these two new summons. I am enjoying them mucho.

For future releases, would it be possible to increase the summons length each time the summon spell skill level is increased?

Thank you.

I can do this, however I will have to balance it somehow.
The elementals are very powerful here, one of the main balance factors for them is their high mana cost and need to be recast.

Raising the mana cost directly will hurt hybrid characters who want to use elemental summons, so I want to avoid that. I don't want to make them weaker either, they're expensive in skill points so should easily be as powerful as a direct cast spell.

Originally, I wanted the elementals to create an AOE when summoned and when destroyed, but couldn't do it at the time. I thought this would mitigate the tedium of re-summoning by making it more fun to use.

Why do you think elementals should get longer life expectancies? Do you find it irritating to re-summon them all the time? Or dislike their unreliability?

Default Elemental Summons

Nope. They are fine as is. The summon time is also fine. It just seemed to make sense to me, is all.

Thank you for your hard work.

Din's Additionals for the Demon War expansion

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.

This mod will not work with the demo of Din's Curse, or without the expansion.

wards: halved particle count while increasing opacity for speed reasons.

The mod is taking the better part of a day to download from mediafire. Locks up, Times out all the time. It's a small file so maybe Steven can host it here. Thanks for the mod.
