About this mod

This mod enables you to play as a Cabal Crusader, which is a skill tree that provides both passive and active skills that are invaluable for a character that wishes to use magic to augment their melee capabilities.

Permissions and credits
This mods was confirmed to work with the (at that time) current base game at January 12, 2021.


What's the purpose of "The Cabal Crusader"?
  • Enable the user to play as a holy warrior with divine magic.
  • Give the user a legit reason to sacrifice health and stamina on a melee character.
  • Enable the user to play an all out melee character without mana, while still casting a few spells.

"The Cabal Crusader" implements a new skill tree with a total of 8 skills (like every other skill tree). The skill tree has a focus on healing the user and his/her allies, resource management and dealing Holy damage. A melee character is typcally very strong against a single enemy and struggles against larger groups. This skill tree addresses that issue by offering less single target power in exchange for a weapon infusion (Impending Doom Imbue) that brings some AoE damage to the table. The skills are as following:

Cure Wounds (Cooldown: 5 seconds, Mana cost: 14)
  • Heals the caster for 7 health, scaling with the caster's Holy damage bonus.
  • The player is partially mobile during the entire spell casting animation.
  • Requires an empty left hand.

Judgement (Passive)
  • Impending Doom Imbueapplies 10 seconds of Impending Doom to target.
  • Sparkapplies 10 seconds of Impending Doom to target, and also applies it to nearby enemies if the effect was already present on the target.

Blessed Determination (Passive)
  • This effect is only active when the player is affected by Blessed, and has no effect otherwise.
  • Restores 100% of mana spent as stamina.
  • Each point of stamina spent gives about 5% Burst of Divinity build-up.

Infuse Doom (Cooldown: 2 seconds, Mana cost: 7)
  • Applies Impending Doom Imbue to the weapon for 60 seconds.
  • Unlike other weapon infusions, this does not consume a boon.

Rebuking Smite (Cooldown: 20 seconds, Mana cost: 7, Stamina cost: 7)
  • A sweeping weapon attack.
  • Deals 1.5x impact damage.
  • Deals 1.5x weapon damage.

Wrathful Smite (Cooldown: 40 seconds, Mana cost: 7, Stamina cost: 8)
  • A leaping attack similar to Predator Leap, but has no AoE damage.
  • Deals 2.0x impact damage.
  • Deals from 2.0x to 5.0x weapon damage depending on the target's missing health.
  • The cooldown resets if the skill kills a target.

Retributive Smite (Cooldown: 40 seconds, Mana cost: 7, Stamina cost: 8)
  • Similar to Counterstrike, but different damage formula.
  • Deals 1.5x weapon damage, with additional 20 bonus Holy damage.
  • Deals 3.0x impact damage.

Channel Divinity (Cooldown: 300 seconds, Mana cost: 20)
This skill can be combined with Rune Magic to make vastly different effects.
  • Shim
    • Adds 50 seconds of Impending Doom to nearby enemies.
  • Dez
  • Egoth
    • Buffs the caster with Healing Surge.
  • Fal
  • No Rune
    • Heal the caster and his/her allies for 30 health, amplified by his/her Holy damage modifier.
    • Revives his/her allies if they are downed.

"The Cabal Crusader" also adds a skill that is not part of the Cabal Crusader skill tree. The skill is:

Prayer (Cooldown: 1 second)
  • The caster is set in a praying pose until he/she moves.
  • Praying for 3 seconds buffs the caster with Blessed. If the caster has learned Blessed Determination, he will also receive Burst of Divinity.
  • Receiving the buffs from Prayer has a 150 seconds internal cooldown, despite the Prayer skill having no cooldown itself.

Some of the skills above cause status effects, and some of these effects are added to the game by this mod. The new effects are:

Impending Doom Imbue (Duration: 60 seconds)
  • A weapon infusion that adds 5 + 25% of weapon damage as Holy damage to the affected weapon.
  • Applies 10 seconds of Impending Doom on a hit.

Impending Doom (Duration: 10 seconds, ticks once every 1 second)
  • A status effect that deals 1 Holy damage per second for 10 seconds to the affected creature.
  • Multiple Impending Doom effects stack up, increasing the duration of the effect by 10 seconds for each stack.
  • Summons a thunderbolt if the remaining damage of the effect exceeds both 40 and the target's maximum health.

Burst of Divinity (Duration: 30 seconds)
  • This effect can be stacked indefinitely. Each effect has individual timers.
  • Reduces the mana cost of the next spell cast by 7 per stack (before reductions).
  • One stack of Burst of Divinity will be consumed for every 7 mana that was not spend due to this status effect. This number is always rounded up.

Surge of Divinity (Duration: 90 seconds)

Healing Surge (Duration: 120 seconds)
  • Doubles the healing from Cure Wounds and makes it able to heal allies.

Is it possible to learn this power?

Not from a jedi, but I suggest seeking out Rufus and Klaus.
