That Fear category looks a lot more useful then the old one. It has a good mix of active and passive abilities too.

Also for Micbran - I wrote an alternate version of Predator that tries to keep the whole stacking/DoT theme but ties in a bit more to hate management and other Cursed themes - lemme know what you think, fairly experimental. Idea is that aside from Fears, Cursed would have Predator for people that want an active experience focusing on burning through hate to get your powerful actives, and then an alternative locked tree that focuses on hoarding hate, so a more passive style of gameplay that would probably tie into Gloom/Rampage.

Right now Raz I'm doing a very slow rewrite of that gimmicky blood tree and making it focus more about stalk marks (I.E. increasing max stalk).

That Predator Capstone looks absolutely terrifying. I'm not against the Cursed Class having terrifying talents like that (they are Cursed), but it is going to make Cursed Rares go from being notably dangerous to atrociously broken if it has too many powerful talents like that.

haha yeah maybe it'd be better as a higher power but shorter duration active rather than NO ESCAPE FOREVER. Or something else entirely, not sure what I want out of this tree just yet.

maybe it might be more concerning that every single one of them has 4 digit movespeed and +200% attack speed forever

Hopefully this iteration strikes a decent balance between the two we've proposed. Give it a look, please.

As an idea, maybe change Lunge will do less then 100% damage, but with a very high increase in damage per tile traveled. That will make players have to back up more then a few tiles to get good bang from their talent - meaning enemies have more turns to do things.

Might be a good idea to start making a big class overview of the talents and categories at this point. We should be getting to the point of evaluating everything in total - both for players, enemy rares, and general balance to other classes.

I've got a google doc, will tidy it up and make a public copy of it when I've got time. Still need to figure out stuff relating to curses and generic trees as well.

To be fair they already pretty much do.

Don't forget to look through the Living Nightmare addon for ideas, as I've got rewrites of pretty much every afflicted category in there.
I'd give the details in a text form, but I lost all the design notes in a drive failure. :x
