The video above talks you through some of the finer and earlier points of the overhaul. Shows you real-world use of the skills within Derinkuyu and Darknessfalls, and shows the process of the Troll king encounter as a Lightning mage!
The Embermage Lightning skill page has long been held as the ugly step child of all skill pages. It revolved around 5 individual direct damage attack spells, 1 ground clutter sentry, and a health survival skill for its active cast skills. No other skill page in the game had so many skills within it that had absolutely no synergies between them.
Skills on the Lightning page that did not change with this overhaul:
Tier1 Prismatic Bolts
Tier5 Deaths Bounty
Passive Tier3 lightning Brand
Skills that were replaced with this overhaul:
Tier2 Shocking Burst has been replaced by a new pointblank area of effect Thunderstorm.
Tier6 Shocking bolts has been replaced by a new ranged version of shocking bolts.
Tier7 Shocking Orbs has been replaced by a new sentry version of shocking orbs.
Skills that were slightly altered with this overhaul:
Tier3 Thunder locus allows more casting of the Locus per tier
Tier4 Arc Beam gains charge when hitting enemies
Passive Tier1: Prismatic Rift no longer teleports, but debuffs enemies
Passive Tier2: Wand Chaos no longer teleports or blinds enemies
Other Embermage skills that were altered with this overhaul:
Ice skill page Tier2 Hailstorm no longer debuffs electricity damage!
Lets take a look at the 5 active cast spell changes in order..
A pointblank storm that leaves enemies debuffed to lightning damage!
Tier3 Thunder Locus
Creating multiple thunder locus's, +1 per tier!
Tier4 Arc Beam
Now generates 20% charge on hit, and 40% when it arcs!
Tier6 Shocking bolts
Creating an artillery like missile that delivers the bolts in a 360 degree arc from impact.
Tier7 Shocking orb
Creating an orb that attaches and follows the player. The orb shoots faster as skill level improves.

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like SynergiesMOD. We love games like Torchlight II that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
