Complete Class Trait and Talent Overhaul

Intro

In another thread I mentioned that it is frustrating to play my level 100 classes for two reasons. The first is that I’m not getting anymore class XP, and because there are so many classes to level, it’s hard to justify using a level 100 one when I could be leveling another one. And the second reason is that the level 100 talents are just… meh. But we’re going to change that, using our imagination, because it’s fun to pretend that things are better than they are. I’ll be touching on two things: class traits, and then the talent trees that all classes share.

Some nice, creative, balanced and on-theme traits etc. in there!

If an overhaul was planned or announced, I’d love the opportunity for more community suggestions.

A few dev Q&A streams ago, they mentioned they were looking at old classes’ traits and planning on reworking them in groups. They may have mentioned a few classes specifically, but I only remember Warden was included.

This is really good stuff! Love the necromancer grave master trait

For the +skill talents, do you envision dual-types getting double bonus? Such as Nobend (goblin/rogue) and Fenrir (wargare/beast), I’m sure there’s others, could be interesting

The one that really caught my eye is for the Stryx, if it triggered on the Chaos Storm talent on every single 4 match … :smile:

Really fun ideas. Thanks for sharing

Hey! Ensoul helped me get a lot of troops leveled!
Also

Level 10: Soul Caller: Gain 1 Soul every turn. -> Gain 100% bonus Souls from battle.

Not going to happen, especially at level 10 :rofl:

Remember that bonus Souls from battle doesn’t generate souls itself, you still need a Soul generator. 1 Soul every turn though is really bad when you need thousands to level just one troop.
