Advanced Classes Mod



Advanced Classes Mod

A Mod by Perry R, AlfWithCake and anti-victor


We're happy to present you Advanced Classes Mod, a gameplay enhancing mod, that features revamped skill and spell systems, new artifacts and artifacts set, 2 dozens
of new and reworked specialities, 6 new subclasses with uniquw abilities and more. The idea of this mod was to create 2 new skill ranks Master and Grandmaster, which are gained right after Expert rank,
as well as a completely new hero class adventurer.

This mod offers:
- New Master and Grandmaster level for every secondary skill;
- New unique effects for every combat spell;
- One new main hero class Adventurer, along with classic Warrior and Mage;
- 3 completely new hybrid subclasses (Battlemage, Hunter and Druid);
- New unique abilities for every class at Master and Grandmaster level;
- Reworked nearly all hero specializations, including creature, spell and skill specialists, new unique specialities, specialities for brand new Adventurer class;
- Reworked Primary and Secondary skill point chance at level up for each class;
- Completely reworked the magic system, now all spells scale with Spell Power and much more;
- Greatly improved usefulness of weaker skills;
- Reworked Commander abilities, they are now much more combat active;
- Most artifacts are improved and are part of a set with interesting bonuses;
- Added 3 new secret class sets;
- New settings for increased difficulty of neutrals and computer players (AI);
- Good compatibility with WoG options;
- Documentation with all changes!

All changes are very thoroughly described in .txt files in "Help and Readme files" folder. Here all changes are preserved to be as simple as possible.
All skills are divided between 3 groups: Adventurer skills, Mage skill and Warrior skills. Each skill gives class points which then will determine class
of the hero. Mastering skills earns you additional 2 class points in respective class. Neutral skills can get Master rank and GM rank from any master/GM class, but mastering them doesn't give any additional points.

Below all skill effects that are separated by "/" sign lists bonuses for all 5 ranks. For example, 4/6/10/12/15% means that basic rank will be 4%,
advanced 6%, expert 10%, master 12% and grandmaster 15%.

Class bonuses and descriptions. You gain master class at 35 class points, grandmaster at 57 class points. You cannot If you get masters at 2 classes simultanneously you will become hybrid class. You can't get master at 3 classes or grandmaster one class and master another class.


Warrior. Fight, destroy, conquer. Power is everything and strength is a must to achieve the state of power. And strength is not in numbers, but in fighting skill and willpower. You will have impossibly strong army, maiming enemies with a single blow while shaking off any hit taken like a scratch.
Master bonus:
- 15% max damage for all troops
Grandmaster:
- 50% damage reduction for all Retaliations,
- Critical Strike I


Mage. Weaken you enemies, bless your allies, blast to pieces anyone you want, everything is possible for a mage. Shock those who think they're brave, block those who think they're fast, curse those who think they're strong, explode those who're fool enough to flock. Alter the battlefield; with immense flexibility of magic you can be creative and it will pay off, or you can be straightforward and implode vitals of everything that moves.
Master:
- 1 extra cast
Grandmaster:
- 1 extra cast per battle round
- Arcane Prophet (you may get one random damaging ability to deal bonus damage. You will get notified which is amplified.)


Adventurer. What does strength mean when there're no people to fight for you? What does magic mean if you can't afford even a simple spell? Does it matter how strong you're if you get stuck in the swamp? For adventurers, simple rules do not apply. Locate resources where other will not, gather soldiers when others are not wise enought to do so, change your rules as you go, bind adventure map to your cause. Smother enemies with your numerous army before they have a chance to call to arms.
Master:
- Plunder Ability (like in H5, removes movement cost of picking up resources, artifacts, capturing mines, attacking CB)
Grandmaster:
- Get Advanced Offense/Armorer/Archery,
- +5% creature growth per Week
We will note here, that adventurer class heroes have their own skill system, meaning that they have secondary skill chances, primary skill gains and starting secondary/primary skills unique to their class and faction. They can't be distinguished by class name, but can easily be distinguished by their speciality their speciality is always associated with adventurer skill. Kyrre, classic logistics specialist, is now an adventurer. Fiona, that used to have cerberi speciality, now is a Scouting specialist and also an adventurer.


Battlemage. Those who can't ignore neither might nor magic will eventually learn how to use them both succefully. Decades of fighting made you realize how valuable it is to overwhelm your opponents and ways of doing so. Your magic will surprise, your warcry will make enemies falter.
- Warcry (reduce hp of enemies by 5-10%)
- Pre-Cast (casts 1 random damage ability when the fight starts)
- 1 extra cast


Hunter. Hunt down animals, hunt down enemies, everything is your prey. Long and numerous hunting sessions turned you into a quick and agile killer, merciless. You surrounded your prey, you negated any unusual moves, first strike is all that matters, wounded prey can't retaliate. And your results are surprising.
- First Shot Ability (your archers will act before everyone in first turn)
- Magic Block (prevents enemy spell casting at first turn)
- Plunder Ability
- 10% max Damage


Druid. You've used your wits, you've worked for brighter future, but you can't save them all. No amount of diplomacy can solve that, you were not quite stupid to believe that. Yet you always have searched for a way to protect everything what is precious to you. You were searching for years and found nothing; the answer always lied before you: Nature. It opened it's secrets to you, it taught you how to be as everlasting as it is, as durable, and it taught you magic. March with your immortal army to your dream: eternal peace.
- Natural Healer (resurrect 2 damage stacks after battles, First Aid skill is not required, but will increase the healing at Master and GM ranks)
- Hardened Skin (damage block equal to 5*HeroLevel)
- 1 extra cast

@edit: I can't get the 10 skills option, still 8 displaying (used trainer mod for level up, maybe conflicts?). I have Era 2.84, do we need more recent?

We obviously borrowed some graphics from Sagamosa but the mod itself is different. Sagamosa arts, graphics and ideas are unrivaled.
AC Mod gives you more choices and lets you built your own class, has less bugs and will be supported

Thanks

The mod is designed for 8 skills, but ofc we know you cannot take the candy away from the spoiled children, so there is the option to use 10 skills.
Playing this mod heavily supports a playstyle to pick your class skills, by doing this you make sure to reach the GM rank. Picking less favored skills also makes it more likely to reach hybrid classes. Dont expect to reach GM in every game you play. Just like in vanilla H3 you will not end up with the perfect hero every game.

If you plan to play with 10 skills, please use 9-10 skill option from "Map Rules" or 10 Skill plugin from Igrik and select the corresponding option at map start if you choose this option it will require more class points to reach Master and Grandmaster.

For the ERA version I think any, that supports namend function, should work.

Same same... while in normal H3 it doesnt make to much sense to change the primary skill points for mages, because it would screw them even more, in this mod spell power is acctually very useful because it improves ALL spells.

Edit: Added some screens to the first post

Updated main post, now it looks like a proper announcement. Also, I want to note here that this mod is not a balance mod, but a gameplay mod. Some things may be way too overpowered, some may still be underpowered, even after all buffs (looking at you, Eagle Eye!) and any feedback regarding balance, any suggestions or even typos reports are welcome!

edit2:
@PerryR I cant find the location where you disabled tactics phase. Can you tell me? Edit3: I found it. Now I know HE:R4 can remove tactics control.

A class system brings a nice deep into the heroes development. Especially when, like us, you're always focused on one hero.

 Hello, thank you for this report and sorry for this bug, you can download the fix here, this rar archive will contain 2 scripts, one will fix any future errors, another will fix prayer spell in your game so you can continue playing. Put them in Data/s folder of "Advanced Classes Mod", overwrite file when you're asked to. In game, press F12 to update script and after you enter any battle your Prayer will be fixed, you can delete "Prayer Specialists fix.erm" after this. Should be no problems after this, but let us know if something is wrong or any other spells is broken.

@ portus & xericsin thanks
We can add an options.ini which brings back original tactics if set.

@ VampMarcie
Seems you are using HD mod, if you change game resolution to a native one you can bring back the colors for skills/spells/artifacts or just play around a bit with the 32 bit options in HD luncher.

Also at which difficulty do you play and do you notice any increased strenght of AI? for the worse, for the better?

How did you get these new hero pictures ?
