Default picking 3 masteries for hybrids...

I have this working now, (not exactly pretty, but it works lol).... here's a linkto it if anyone's interested. original message preserved below : ) oh and I should mention that I have included my tiny little mod for making deleting characters a much faster process.... don't click delete unless you really want them gone! : ) if you don't want that potential for disaster, just delete "Din's Curse\Assets\\UI\loadCharacte r.mnu" from the archive : )

Hi everyone : )

New here and to Din's curse about 4 days ago, and 2 days in I decided I wanted to be a hybrid instead of wizard only....

I quickly disliked it though as I couldn't stand the thought of only having 2 of 3 classes "specialization" skills the top though, so started trying to mod it to allow 3...

I quickly found the spot in "assets/databases/classes" for the hybrid that says "PlayerChosenSkillTrees" and changed it from 2 to 3... this seems to only make the game require 3 skills to proceed with character generation though...

I next went to "assets/ui/newcharacter.mnu" moved "select hybrid" "specialty1:" "choose" "specialty 2:" and "choose" up right under hybrid instead of spaced to the bottom and then created a "specialty 3:" section with a "choose" button right below using the "specialty 1 and 2" information in the file as a reference : )

however even though I changed all the "2"s to "3"s, a few things still didn't work:

1.) the third skill screen for the hybrid in game was still blank!
2.) when creating the hybrid, instead of saying "Specialty 2:" the label says "HybridTree3:"

so I'm assuming that somewhere there's a spot that tells the game that "HybridTree2 and 1" should be shown as "specialty2 and 1", and that doesn't exist for "HybridTree3"? if so, is that in a file somewhere I can edit?

I AM able to play a hybrid with 2 picked classes and 1 third static one if I change out the third "SkillTreeBlank" in the Hybrid section of the classes file to a real skill tree.... the game then ignores my choice for the third skill tree and gives me that one every time (plus the 2 I pick)

This is ok playing solo, but when I have friends over, and we all want to create a 3 class hybrid, won't the server's setting for 3rd skilltree override their local file?

So if anyone knows of anything I can do to make the third selection actually matter let me know please : )

Thank you all for your time reading this, I realize it was a bit lengthy! : )

Hi, welcome to the forums. I know that hybrids are tough to choose for someone new at the game. But if you have 3 class hybrids, it just wont be fair. I'd like to help you do it, but I dont know any of that stuff.

If however, you would like to do a normal hybrid, I, and most people here can suggest a few ideas for classes. What kind of a class do you want to play- fighter type, Fighter/caster, rogue, Rogue/fighter, priest, archer? Most people here can give you an idea on what will work and what wont. Just feel free to ask.

it wasn't hard actually (made it to level 15 just as quick and easy as I did with my straight up wizard).... it's the KNOWING that I'm missing out on 1/3rd of my stat effectiveness...

Also, I reeeeaallly like the thought of a Rogue-Thief/Wizard-Ice Mage/Conjurer-Necromancer class lol : )

I also want a Wizard-Magician/Wizard-Ice Mage/Conjurer-Sorceror hybrid....

as far as I'm concerned, taking a class that has different stat bonuses than the other skill trees is already enough of a sacrifice as your "gain/stat point" goes down considerably....having a rogue/wizard 2 class hybrid would make it so that points in INT are about 1/3 as meaningful as a pure wizard, my way at least lets me choose one stat or the other and make it 2/3 effectiveness (except in my 2nd hybrid choice which has many of the same perks being an INT based caster tree like the wizards...)

I think having the hardcoded 3rd tree is the best you are going to be able to do because their isn't a stat field to save a 3rd skill tree in your character.

ok, kind of figured it would turn out that way....

you kind of teased me with the file though by having 3 "skilltreeblank" lines and the "playerchosenskills 2" line lol : )

Thanks for the confirmation so I can give up on that for now : ) Now I'm playing around with trying to add +skills and +magic (spell) damage for gear lol.

Anyone else that uses this mod having difficulty with 1.007 and lockpicking? My thief hybrid doesn't seem to unlock things, even when there's a 100% chance of success.

edit: nvm - in my moronicity, I forgot it wasn't a passive skill.
