Features

Please report bugs here: https://discord.gg/dJP24PRbeQ "The Crusader" implements a new skill tree with a total of 8 skills (like every other skill tree). The skill tree has a focus on healing the user and his/her allies, resource management and dealing Holy Damage. A melee character is typcally very strong against a single enemy and struggles against larger groups. This skill tree addresses that issue by offering less single target power in exchange for a weapon infusion (Zealous Weapon) that brings some AoE damage to the table. The skills are as following:

Cure Wounds (Mana cost: 14)

  • Heals the caster and all allies of the caster within 15 units for 10 health, scaling with the caster's Holy Damage bonus.
  • The player is partially mobile during the entire spell casting animation.

Rebuking Smite (Cooldown: 20 seconds, Mana cost: 7, Stamina cost: 14)

  • A sweeping weapon attack.
  • Deals 1.7x weapon damage.
  • Deals 1.5x impact damage.
  • Applies Doomed.

Meditate (Passive)

  • The caster is set in a meditating pose until he/she moves.
  • Meditating for 3 seconds buffs the caster with Burst of Divinity or Ancestral Memory depending on faction choice.
  • Receiving the buffs from Meditate has a 100 seconds internal cooldown, despite the Meditate skill having no cooldown itself.

Blessed Determination (Passive)

Judgement (Passive)

Wrathful Smite (Cooldown: 40 seconds, Mana cost: 7, Stamina cost: 10)

  • A leaping attack that deals more damage to wounded enemies, and instantly becomes available for another use if it kills its target.
  • Deals 2.0x impact damage.
  • Deals from 2.0x to 5.0x weapon damage depending on the target's missing health.
  • The cooldown resets if the skill kills a target.

Holy Shock (Cooldown: 30 seconds, Mana cost: 14)

  • A blast that damages opponents and heals allies.
  • Deals 40 Holy Damage and 40 Impact Damage to enemies.
  • Applies 15 seconds of Impending Doom to enemies. Enemies already affected by Impending Doom will spread the effect to nearby enemies.
  • Heals allies for 10 health, scaling with the caster's Holy Damage bonus.

Channel (Cooldown: 300 seconds, Mana cost: 7) This skill can be combined with Boons to make vastly different effects.

Some of the skills above cause status effects, and some of these effects are added to the game by this mod. The new effects are:

Zealous Weapon (Duration: 10 seconds)

  • A weapon infusion that adds 5 + 25% of weapon damage as Holy Damage to the affected weapon.
  • Applies 15 seconds of Impending Doom on a hit.

Bone Shivering Weapon (Duration: 10 seconds)

  • A weapon infusion that adds 5% of weapon damage as both frost and ethereal damage to the affected weapon.
  • Adds 33% Chill buildup.
  • Adds 33% Haunted buildup.
  • Heals for 10% of the damage dealt with the weapon.

Impending Doom (Duration: 15 seconds, ticks once every 1 second)

  • A status effect that deals 1 Holy Damage per second for 15 seconds to the affected creature.
  • Multiple Impending Doom effects stack up, increasing the duration of the effect by 15 seconds for each stack.
  • Summons a thunderbolt if the remaining damage of the effect exceeds both 40 and the target's maximum health.

Burst of Divinity (Duration: 30 seconds)

  • This effect can be stacked indefinitely. Each effect has individual timers.
  • Reduces the mana cost of the next spell cast by 7 per stack (before reductions).
  • One stack of Burst of Divinity will be consumed for every 7 mana that was not spend due to this status effect. This number is always rounded up.

Ancestral Memory (Duration: 30 seconds)

  • This effect can be stacked indefinitely. Each effect has individual timers.
  • Reduces the mana cost of the next spell cast by 7 per stack (before reductions).
  • One stack of Ancestral Memory will be consumed for every 7 mana that was not spend due to this status effect. This number is always rounded up.

Surge of Divinity (Duration: 90 seconds)

Surge of Memories (Duration: 90 seconds)

Healing Surge (Duration: 120 seconds)

Is it possible to learn this power?

Not from a jedi, but you could try speaking to the guy next to the alchemist shop in Monsoon, or the little girl next to the Wild Hunter trainer. You must join a faction to become a Crusader. Your Crusader abilities will vary depending on your faction.
