Great ideas though i rather they create a new skill tree than expand on the current magic based skill trees which are already pretty hefty themselves. Martial skills, non-magic could use some love, Defender skill tree, Bard, Unarmed Combat etc.

Unfortunately you can pretty much rule out any new skill trees like Defender, Bard, and Unarmed. Larian only wanted to add in two to the game as Kickstarter Stretch goals, and the backers voted for Polymorph and Summoning.

Pity. I would've been interested to see how the bard tree turns out, instead of getting more of the same old meh like polymorph and summoning, which are always my skills of last resort where they are available. But I suppose magic needed an extra couple of schools...


J'aime le fromage.

I like Fire link the most, where you basically make a connection to an enemy (or possibly an ally?), and anyone between you and the linked character takes damage when one of you move (or start their turn in the fire link, perhaps).

I also like the idea of Enhance Weapon, where you increase the range of your melee weapon, though I think that'll end up being a polymorph spell (from what I remember Swen saying).

Possession could be fun, sort of like a weak charm where you lose your own control to control an enemy, though I'm not sure if the game mechanics would make that easy to implement.

Healing Blossom is also neat, though again, don't know if it needs to be channeled. It'd be kinda cool and bizarre if when it exploded after 3 turns, say, it actually dealt damage instead of healing, so you could use it as a staging area while enemies come at you, and by the time they get there, it'll explode and hurt them instead.

I'm not sure if the Linked Spell concept is necessary, though it would open up new options. I'd probably just call it "Channeled." Basically, the idea is that if you get stunned or knocked down while channeling, it'll stop the spell? I guess there's room for allowing damage to break the channeling too.

Yes, thats exactly the idea, i didnt thought about DMG interrupt, but that could be too.

And yes, its a new mechanic that allow the game to be more tactical, since, as you said, linked fire could use on an alli, and then telep him, you also can charm someone with the link, and of course you can make a mess if the linked one use that link on his advantage.

Its just a new concept, that i thought it could be fun.

Corpse manipulation is probably the least helpful and far too situational.
