We've got some new Skill and Support gems for 0.9.7!
- Added a new skill - Lightning Arrow: Fires a charged arrow at the target, causing them to be struck by a bolt of lightning which damages nearby enemies.
- Added a new skill - Summon Skeletons: Summons a group of slow moving skeletal minions. They last 20 seconds before expiring and do not require a corpse when casting.
- Added a new skill - Burning Arrow: Fires an arrow that deals fire damage to its target and has an increased chance of setting it on fire.
- Added nine player aura skills: Anger (Fire Damage), Hatred (Cold Damage), Wrath (Lightning Damage), Discipline (Energy Shield), Grace (Evasion), Determination (Armour), Purity (Elemental Resistances), Haste (Attack Speed and Cast Speed) and Vitality (Life Regeneration).
Lighning arrow: I love it. Works well. My ranger
prefers it over the 3 arrow multi arrow (strafe?) which
IMO is annoying in comparison.
Same for the Burning Arrow. Very nice bonus and perhaps
just the right amount of splash though it would be great
if that effect could be modded via a mod gem perhaps to enlarge that burning radius. Again, prefer use over
the multi arrow by far.
Summon Skeltons: Tried them with my witch who
also summons zombies (up to 3 now). Found skeletons
too annoying to bother with. Far too slow to keep up
to be worth bothering to summon. Skill needs a rework.
While on the subject. zombies are great but they need
to be more distinguishable from other mobs in the game.
Wrath and Hatred Auras: Only ones I've experienced with.
Noted that Wrath and Hatred on two separate players WILL stack, according to char sheet melee DPS report, which is nice.
Noted that Wrath and Wrath do not stack.
Noted the radius of the two mentioned auras is
perhaps a few feet too small. Would consider making the
aura radius somewhat larger.
Tested on level 22ish witch and 18 ranger (arrow lobber).
CliffH raved: maybe if half the mods Werent neckbearded, introverted middle aged men covered in a layer of cheeto dust, they would review the reports before smacking their over protruding forehead on the mute button. FUNNY!
