Skill change with item

Post by Specktro » Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:25 pm

Hi guys!

Well, the tittle says everything...

I'd like to know if is it possible to change skill element/graphic/dmg/whatever with specific gear equiped...
I.E:
My Druid has Tornado skill, that is magic or cold dmg (can't remember now)... and I want to equip him with a Fire Totem as shield and now his Tornado is stronger, is fire dmg and the missile is a fire tornado...
Like changing stuff on skill without changing the skill itself...
I mean, I know we have Trang Oul set that gives sorc skill to necro, but in this case it uses oskill to use another skills out of its tree, and my doubt is if this change can be made, like in my exemple, using the same Tornado skill Druids already uses...

My english is not so good but I think I made myself clear... :lol:

I'm not an expert on skills but the only thing I can think of and maybe someone can chime in, is to create a new dummy skill for your totem and add a synergy to tornado for this new skill and make the synergy add what you want. Can anyone say if this is a viable answer?

If this works, I don't think the animation of the skill could be changed in this way.

Well, you can't do what you want. You can however, have the totem give a skill "Fire Tornado" which is what you describe above, and have all of its power determined by the level of Druid's tornado skill. This accomplishes the goal albeit in a less "clean" manner.

Hope that helps.
