Need help with skilldesc

Post by ocarinas » Sat May 20, 2017 7:08 am

Hello,
My English isn't good so I'll keep things as short as possible. Sorry for inconvenient.
As the title says I need someone to check the skill names if It fits with the skill show in clips, and if possible someone that good with English to think of skill descriptions. Of course, I'll try my best to do it first, just need someone to correct them.
My mod will have 3 sub-classes and 1 general skill tab for each classes. All of the skills, I tried to keep them as simple as possible without too OP or large AOE. I'm not a fan of fast pace and hardcore game. The skills in this mod are heavily inspired by Blackened.
Currently I'm finished all the classes except Barbarian. I already have all of his skill planned though. As for General tab, I'll manage somehow since all of them are your typical beginner skills like Bash, Double Attack, etc.

EDIT: Thanks as always, Alpha :)
EDIT2: Replaced barb vid with the new one.

Oh, Sorry I accidentally set the clip to private. Fixed now.

My English is pretty {filtered}, and I was in rush, sorry about that. Let's me explain again.
I've finished most of the classes except barb, and I also have his skills planned. I need someone to check if the skills name fit the actual skills show in the clip, and if possible, someone that have too much times in their hands will help me think of skill description. I'd appreciate this the most, with my current English level, It's going to take forever.

I think Storm Crow or Stormcrows would be better fitting than Murder of Crow. Would add a "s" to Wing of Horus -> Wings of Horus. About possible skill descriptions I guess they should be similar to vanilla?

Thanks so much! I really appreciate it. I'll make sure to put your name in credits.

About Bird Scouts, It's basically an Attract curse clone what It does is leave a medium light radius on the target area for 4 seconds. If you cast on mobs, It'll function like Attract.

In this mod, all areas in the game will be dark. So skills with white radius (most skills have red, blue, etc colored which still make them harder to see) are quite special.

Unrelated to the thread, Anyone knows if there're more skill functions that can add % damage to the missile? I wanna change the bonus flat damage of Focused Shot skill to % damage instead. As far as I know, only 2 can do this which are Guided Arrow and Strafe. I just tried both a while ago but they have serious flaws that I don't want, like for GA if you don't use its own missile function, the missile will only go as far as to where you clicked...
