It is nice that staves are classless for the rare alt that just doesn't like class skills.

For mage/monks the aspect of snake doesn't poison enemies via spells. I believe other aspects work normally. It'd be cool if that worked.

I noticed nothing special on the z status when casting cone of acid. Mobs didn't appear any weaker. Maybe if flies surrounded them as well that'd be cool.

When will mobs get to wield a weapon?

Sure armor and stuff for humanoids too i guess. Lots of gear around.

AHA I remembered my password!.. assuming i didnt make a new forum account under the name Dwarfurious years ago... oh well.

Would it be tooooo crazy if Dwarves ignored movement penalty when wearing heavy MITHRIL armor?

Also since pets have gotten upgrades uh... Mithril Golem when?... With a ranged lightning attack o. o their are some ranged focused pets right?
Would stand out from other golems

Well there are those crossbow golems. Musket Attachments & later musket FLAM grav explosions. Any ol mob can have lightning. But a missile launching mithril golem mechwarrior.... mmmmm delicious.

Remove the restrictions on some class abilities like throat strike, mirror images, etc for multiclass purposes

I’m perfectly happy with the current class cap of PD, I am saying requiring an unarmed weapon to throat strike for example isnt exactly helping if you want to dual class with a rogue because you can’t use the ability with foils or shortswords. Seeing that it isn’t a 90% special ability I don’t see much of an issue it becoming a non weapon specific ability.

I don’t think you should be able to cleave with a staff as a mage if you wish to dual class as them, that seems to go too far.

Put the same restrictions on berserker stance as there is on tanking stance, just be holding a weapon that fighters or priests can use. This gives sword and board a bit more power and gives half trolls a stance to run with!

Priest could use a tiny bit of a bone. Their spell book is mostly just inscription and a few spells they stole from mage.
I think the class is strong mostly from it's ratio, it's fighter that trades block for the best parts of inscription and heals.
here are some spell ideas to fill in the gaps and make them feel more unique.

Divinity:
- circle 1 Bless Water:
green potions grant the ability to poison enemies with your weapons, like a pseudo veno tint on top of whatever you're using. bless water would turn a clear potion into holy water. Consuming a holy water would provide a temporary damage bonus against undead like a temporary silver tint similar to how green potions function. This makes gaining early levels a bit more easier, since casting bless weapon on a blessed mace doesn't return it to a normal mace like hexblades, and also provides a little utility and flavor.

-circle 8 Sacrifice:
deals 90% of the caster's max HP as damage to the caster, bleeds the caster, some large cooldown.
Sacrifice would be a mesh of an AoE heal, turn undead, and a buff.
in a 5x5 area around the caster, undead enemies are turned, any party members get a full heal and a -10% dmg reduction buff for 1 minute.


Piety:
-move improved fortitude to a lower circle. AFAIK it's just a castable GHS. Nice little QoL spell, no need to write/afk GHS scrolls. Not sure if it's a great payoff for 100% priest. maybe circle 6?

-circle 5 aoe heal:
heals the same amount as mani or xen mani to friendly npcs / party members in a 5x5 area around the caster or target or something. This lets parties without a tank survive a bit easier. spamming tab to cycle thru targets to heal people in need is a pain in the ass, sometimes too slow, and kinda eye straining at times.

-circle 8 Benediction:
-10% damage reduction on a target for 60 seconds, can't be cast on self (like death ward). makes for a nice buff for bosses but too much of a pain in the ass to upkeep during a normal hunting party, unless you spam it on your tank which seems like a valid support role. This feels a bit more in the spirit of divinity but you can only have so many riffs on heals.

still left some gaps because I didn't have any other solid ideas. If you hate the idea of benediction/10% dmg reduction but like the idea of sacrifice, maybe give a greater fortification buff(+150 hp) instead? I guess sacrifice and benediction could swap schools as well.
maybe throw protection into piety since divinity spells are easier to design?



spitball idea while typing this out:

let R be the % of hp healed from regen
blood lust stance: deals R*5 damage to the user per second (or whatever timer regen goes off of), +20% dmg bonus (or some big juicy AS bump)
scales to regen so someone can't stack a regen belt on a troll and ignore most of the draw back

maybe vampyric weapons/vampires outpace the draw back if used on a troll with regen gear?? paying hp for more damage is a fun risk/reward mechanic, would be neat to see it explored a tiny bit in euo

Holy might spell similar to mage dex spell but for str instead.

Kind of wish such spells had a bit more bonus than just +100.

Cap those babies at +500 or +1k. Mage/rogues. Fighter/priests or priest anything would swoon over so much str

Make the belt of regeneration recipe give you a scroll instead so you can put regeneration on any belt instead of having a plain one! You currently have to use wands to tint belts of regen even tho you can make the base.
