NordInvasion 1.6.1


NordInvasion 1.6.1

1.6.1 Client Release

Hero Classes:

Juggernaut: the blacksmiths have been hard at work creating stronger armors that push the limits of human endurance. The result is impressive - full suits of heavy hardened steel plates that still allow the users to maintain their mobility. This Hero has been trained not only to use such heavy armors, but also to better use infantry weapons in such an encumbering shell.

Hoplite: it has been made clear that some of the most feared weapons on the battlefield are those with some reach to them. However, sometimes soldiers would prefer the safety of the shield. Our answer are specialized one handed spears partnered with sturdy round shields that allow for superior versatility. The Hoplite has access to specialized spears with high one handed speeds that can be used in two handed mode for a little more speed and power. However, they cannot block in one handed mode, a shield is required.

Repeaterman: increased trade with the east has brought us great new technology. Our repeater crossbows have been fine tuned to have greatly increased accuracy at the cost of taking longer to reload and having a slightly slower shooting speed. Our crossbowmen required specialized training to properly use these powerful new machines of war.

Sentry: for some reason, our archers have always been partial to two handed swords. Some may say it is all in the aesthetic, others say it just feels safe to have a large, sharp piece of metal on your back to ward off nasty assassins. Either way, we have incorporated lessons from our two hand sword specialists to help train these soldiers to use their preferred melee weapons. As an added bonus, lighter, faster swords have been developed that can also be switched into a second mode where soldiers can perform overhead stabs.

I just want to give a small update to my thoughts here. The mod is still GREAT and I highly recommend this mod to anyone who even slightly considers playing. My only problem, even after this less-than-desirable update, is the lack of NA players. So if you'd like to give the mod a go and have not yet I highly suggest you do! If you're new (for NA) and need someone to help you level and/or explain anything I'd be more than happy to help you, which helps this community.

You are more than welcome to contact me through moddb, I check almost hourly, but you can of course contact me via Steam.
