The Command Artifact is too strong, but having better control over your build is fun.

This mod gives you more control over your run while not being imba

Similar mods exists but do not have the configurability or additional QOL this does

What it do?

This mod changes the amount of options that you can choose from the Command Essences that drop with the Command Artifact.

Also provides some QOL options like having the Bazaar and Terminal shops drop the item they are displaying


Improved Command Essence is highly configurable, you can change the amount of options you can choose from for each tier individually
The default values are how I like to play, change these up to fit your playstyle


You can change the option amount for each tier

Rarity/Tier Options
Common (White) 6
Uncommon (Green) 4

Lunar (Blue) 2
Boss (Yellow) 2
