« on: January 12, 2013, 07:17:39 AM »

Synergies V1.35 Released January 3rd  Major Necromancer Update
[spoiler]General Changes:
added files for 2 new legendary weapons, and a whole new suit of legendary armor, to be announced soon.

Necromancer Changes:
Summon spells no longer have the word SUMMON in their spell name, was too long.
Icons added: Bone wall, Bone needles, Bone spikes, Bone armor
spells with placeholder icons:  Death Dolls, Spore Horde, Phase, Skeleton Horde, death Pact, Summon Fury

[size=150]Skills tweaked:[/size]
Bone Cage
Added a stomping animation to its cast
changed its effects of poison overtime to affixes, making it display correctly.

Bone Needles
changed to poison damage
added 20% armor ignore to damage done

Bone Spikes
Decreased mana cost by 20%
Lowered cooldown

Skeleton Horde
rank 14 summon now works as intended
Increased the damage bonus for skill pnts invested from 2 to 3% per pnt.

Zombie Horde
Now has a scaling movement speed and attack damage buff per skill point invested, no more feeling like you are wasting 2 pnts between ranks.
Increased the damage bonus for skill pnts invested from 2 to 3% per pnt.

Skull Barrage
Increased mana cost by 20%

[size=150]Skills Added[/size]
Bone Wall
Investing skill pnts in bone wall reduces its cooldown
Tier bonus's for bone wall add another wall to its length
Each wall segment can summon a half-skeleton, each tier allows each wall segment to summon an EXTRA half-skeleton...

Death Dolls
Death Dolls IS a horde spell, but does not have the name horde in its name
death dolls is the opposite of Zombies/Skeletons.  They are fast moving low health monsters.
Death dolls start with a inate spider leap, and scale survivability with skill pnts.
Each Tier adds another death doll or 2 to the summon.

Spore Horde
Spores are a tier7 spell that are effected by a large scaling damage bonus.
Each tier adds another 2 spores to the cast.
Spores tend to hide after casting their spell, might save on a bit of processor speed, maybe.

Death Pact
death pact is a small radius (think pestilence) AOE pact.
each pnt increases its snare from base to 80%
each tier adds to the spell. 
at tier1 (5-9) the snare goes increases at a higher rate then 1-4
at tier2 the pact makes enemies recieve more damage (max 20%)
at tier3 the pact has a chance to immobilize (every tick that a enemy is within the pact it has a chance to immobilize for 2 seconds)

Pet Changes
Skeleton with clothing now has its own unique ICON
pet with placeholder Icon: Ghost pet.

Synergies V1.33 Released December 26th   New Ghost pet, fixes
[spoiler]<<WARNING>> Due to graphical problems with the skeleton and Zombie pet I had to change the textures/meshes of these pets.  Due to this, anyone who selected skeleton pet #4 and zombie pets #2 or #6 will LIKELY have to remake their characters, unless you can find a way to change pets.  (rapid respec does not work atm)  If any of those are your pets your best bet is move your gear to the shared stash.  I am very sorry for this, and will work diligently to make sure it never happens again.  Sadly to keep up the polished work of Synergies, I have to fix the original issue.)
