1.13d Skills.Txt Synergies?

Post by JayBrainDead » Wed Mar 14, 2018 11:14 pm

I was wondering if it is possible to add or change values of skill synergies. Exemple : Every skill points spent in Chain Lightning adds X% dmg to Lightning

Hi,

I think this is the field u have to change:

for example you can change it to:

(skill('Charged Bolt'.blvl)+skill('Nova'.blvl))*par8+skill('Chain Lightning'.blvl)*9


so that Chain Lightning adds 9% dmg to Lightning each level, instead of using par8 which is set to 8 by default

or even better change it to

(skill('Charged Bolt'.blvl)+skill('Nova'.blvl))*par8+skill('Chain Lightning'.blvl)*par7

and put a 9 into the par7 field ;)

Thanks a lot that makes a lot of sense and I'll take a good look at that, but is par always the exact dmg% increase ?

From what I remember though the vast majority of skills dont add 8% each and I wonder if it is because it has been designed/rebalanced in later patches or maybe they actually do but only the Skill description graphic** has never been updated. Who knows ? That will give me a lot to think about for the next few days because I planned so many changes :)

** Actually this might all be stored in a .tbl file which would make it a lot easier to change if it the case.

Par8 doesn't mean 8%, it's a reference to the column "Par8" which is... parameter

Thx a lot Black_Eternity That now makes a lot more sense to me, I still havent open'd it to take a look but I will soon. That also explains how you can get more synergy bonuses besides dmg (Like defense% and what not).
