How can i add Piercing Information to a new skill?

Post by bigbywolf » Mon Jan 28, 2019 7:03 pm


I'm new to the forum.

I've created a druid skill called Elemental Mastery which adds 50% percent fire damage and 8 fire damage per level to all fire skills. i also wanted to add piercing attack and i think i got it working, but... i am not able to make it available in the display of the skill.
Can someone help me with this issue? what lines to edit in skilldesc.txt? am i missing something?
In descline1 i have 2, desctexta1: Strskill5, desctextb1 StrSkill23, Desccalca1 ln12.
That defines the fire damage per level in a percentage. now i filled the next column called
descline2, with information i think is correct about piercing damage:
descline2: 7
desctexta2: StrSkill5
desctextb2: StrSkill23

Thanks for reading! 8-O

By "piercing", you mean passive_fire_pierce, correct? You're supposed to put the value in desccalcaX. For example:

Code: Select all

descline2 = 7
desctexta2 = StrSkill2
desccalca2 = <put your formula here>
Also, you might want use a different value for desclineX so that the tooltip displays "Enemy Fire Resistance: -X%" instead of just "X percent". Check out the SkillDesc.txt guide for more information.
