About this mod

This mod reverses a number of nerfs from patch 1.1

Permissions and credits
Removed the unnerf to Akola's Apex Ward's Blood Rage ability as it was causing it to provide a +1400% (!!) damage bonus.

As most of you likely remember, patch 1.1 brought along a fair deal of nerfs to both items and class abilities.

In time, I've grown accustomed to some of the changes or learned to work around others—and it is true that the game was too easy on release, and nerfs were the easiest, most immediate countermeasure. It is also true that some of the nerfs were absolutely warranted.

On the other hand, I found (and still find to this date) some of those changes to be either completely unnecessary or downright petty. For example, what difference does it make if Baubles of the Fin provide a 3% bonus to damage instead of 5%? Did anybody ever complain about this item's breaking their game in any way? It was barely worth using at 5% and completely useless at 3%.

Enter "Deadfire Unnerfed", in which I undo most of the changes from patch 1.1. The reason why I didn't undo all of them is stated above (some were warranted, others I've grown accustomed to and feel no need to reverse.)

NOTE : When I started this mod I periodically stopped to test the changes I was making, but once I got the hang of it I just went ahead and did it without testing. Once done, I did a cursory check of a few items at random, caught a few issues, and fixed them. However, the mod is presently not thoroughly tested and there might be imprecisions or mistakes. Should you run into any, don't panic and leave a message instead: I will read it and look into it.

Here's a TL; DR version of what I've done:

  • All Changes to durations and Power Level bonuses were left untouched.
  • Changes to Pen/AR bonuses were mostly left untouched (i.e. most were left untouched with a few exceptions.)
  • Most changes to damage bonuses, damage reduction, hit-to-crit, crit-to-hit, and proc chances were reversed.
  • All changes to recovery and attack speed bonuses were reversed.
  • All abilities that went from "per encounter" to "per rest" were reversed, but abilities that remained in the same category and only changed the number of uses were left untouched.

This is the full list of changes (taken from my in-dev notes, which I didn't bother to embellish or rephrase because frankly that'd be a lot of work for a wall of text most people won't read); any items not mentioned were left untouched. Note that the mod comes in three different files, so if you don't like the changes in one of them you may simply delete it from your override folder.
