*Changes in ES 3.00 R6 [#q238d811]


**Beta Files [#f66be5bd]
-These files are beta and may cause problems.
-Please remember ES automatically makes a backup of your characters and stash in "(your D2 folder)\es300r\save\backup". 
-Please don't use any beta versions in multiplayer games.

-This updates the skills.
-Please report the skill balance, especially the new Sacrifice.
(The skill description of Sacrifice hasn't been finished. The shown life loss is the percentage of the current life per 10 frames.) 
-USAGE: Unzip to "(your D2 folder)\es300r\data\global\excel".
-To uninstall beta, please reinstall R5H. 

**Bug Fixes [#eb48c35d]
-Fixed the bug that following recipes crashes ES.
--Raistlin Set Weapon base change (Grim Scythe -> Rune Bow)
--Raistlin Set Weapon base change (Rune Bow -> Rune Staff)
--Any Set Item that can't be converted + Thawing Potion
-Fixed the bug that Multi Stocker returns a Healing Potion when it should return a Mana Potion. 
-Fixed the synergy amount from Shapeshifting Mastery to Werewolf and Elemental Form (3% -> 7%.)
-Fixed the data of RW Medecine in Runetool, which had been accidentaly broken.
-Fixed the bug that Spirit Wolves don't regenerate their life.
-Fixed the wrong synergy description of Charged Claws. (Feral Rage -> Fire Claws)
-Fixed the bug that tokenizing any 3 socket Rune Scepter (including Righteous Avenger) yields a corrupted token.
--The corrupted tokens of Righteous Avenger can be untokenized.
--The corrupted tokens of other 3 sokcet Rune Scepters cannot be untokenized. (Sorry)

**System Changes [#n2bc579f]
-(Win) Removed the save data size limit (8KB) of D2. (Got rid of Too Many Items error.)

**Item Changes [#ode0bcff]
-Removed Carry One Check from Unique Charms.
(This doesn't mean you can carry multiple Unique Charms of a kind. Carry One Check is a protect against a certain cheat, but a Carry One Check counts as a state and can be the cause of '''27 States''' error and '''Too Many Items''' error. So I decided to remove them for the benefit of the generality of players.)
--The Carry One Check on an existing Unique Charm can be erased by cubing. 
--The Carry One Check on a White Odd Charm still exists and can't be erased.
-''Reaver of the Angel of Annihilation'' (Set Soul Destroyer)
--50% CtC Lvl 14 Bone Armor When Struck -> +5 To Bone Armor (because CtC BA overwrites native BA)
-''Yagul's Wrath'' (Unique Druid's Seal)
--2% CtC Lvl 50 Bone Wall When You Kill An Enemy -> Hell's Gate (by a request, to avoid graphic lag)

**Skill Changes [#q3fbf778]
--Added 5/4 weapon damage bonus.
--Elemental Damage%: 70% + 6%/lvl -> 100% + 10%/lvl
--Synergy from Protection Auras: 10% -> 12%
--Synergy from Other Auras: 5% -> 7%
--Increased the damage bonus (80% + 40%/lvl -> 100% + 40%/lvl).
--Increased the AR bonus (50% + 15%/lvl -> 100% + 15%/lvl).
--Negates any physical damage you take while attacking.
--The Life Loss is changed as follows:
---Propotional to your current life instead of the damage you deal.
---Propotional to your attack length. (Attacking fast results less life loss.)
---Increases as the slvl increases.
---@slvl 1: 5% of your current life per 10 frames. (7% with the initial weapon, with which you attack at 14 FPA.)
---@slvl 34: 10% of your current life per 10 frames.
---@slvl 67: 15% of your current life per 10 frames.
---@slvl 100: 20% of your current life per 10 frames.
--Removed the Life Loss synergies.
--Made the attack uninterruptible.
--Increased the AR bonus (50% + 15%/lvl -> 50% + 25%/lvl).
--Added 5/4 weapon damage bonus.
--Added AR bonus (20% + 10%/lvl).
--Damage% To Self: 40% + 12%/lvl -> 42% + 12%/lvl
--Damage% To Party: 30% + 9%/lvl -> 35% + 10%/lvl (3/4 of full damage -> 5/6)
-''Oak Sage''
--Increased the base life and base defense by 50%.
--Increased the life regeneration (3 -> 5).
-''Heart of Wolverine'', ''Spirit of Barbs''
--Increased the life regeneration (3 -> 5).
-''Poison Creeper'', ''Carrion Vine'', ''Solar Creeper''
--Increased the life regeneration (3 -> 5).
--Added an AoE with radius 4 yards. (Now CtC Enchant can affect nearby friendly units.)
--In the town, it only affects the caster like Barbarian's friendly warcries.  
--Doubled the mana cost.
-''Summon Skeleton'', ''Summon Vampire''
--Reduced the footprint of Skeletons and Vampires (2x2 -> 1x1) to reduce the collision.
***Rescaling Defense% Skills [#ec67ad88]
-Some classes/builds can attain a really high defense, while some classes that don't have native Defense% skills can't. To ease this inequality, monsters' AR is generally reduced and Defense% skills are generally nerfed.
-Reduced monsters' Attack Rating by 0-25%. (less reduction in early difficulty.)
-Reduced Defense% bonus from skills by 30%.
--Assuming an average defensive character has 500% defense bonus from skills in end games.
--His total defense is '''base * 600%'''.
--If reduced by 30%, his defense bonus is 350%.
--His total defense is '''base * 450%'''.
--So he loses 25% of his total defense, which can be offset by the -25% AR of monsters.
(Less defensive characters simply benefit from -25% AR of monsters.)

**Hireling Changes [#p070f62d]
-''Offensive Barbarian''
--Bash: +4-6 to slvl
--Berserk: -> Concentrate
-''Desert Mercenary''
--Defiance, Holy Fire, Prayer, Thorns, Meditation

---slvl @clvl 50: 5-11 -> 17
---slvl @clvl 85: 10-19 -> 27
---Slightly increased the slvl increment after clvl 85.
---slvl @clvl 85: 3 -> 4
---Salvation: -> Concentration
---slvl @clvl 85: 3 -> 7
-''Western Sorcerer''
--Fire Ball: +4 to slvl
--Gracial Spike: +4 to slvl
--Chain Lightning: +4 to slvl, -10% chance
--Bone Spirit: +10 chance (so that all sorcerers have the same chance of sub elemental attack)

**Plans [#m18d46b4]

***Rebalance Heavy Weapons and Light Weapons [#e115fddb]
-1H Melee Weapons (Elite)
|WSM|Old Damage (Avg.)|New Damage (Avg.)|Diff.|h

-2H Melee Weapons (Elite)
|WSM|Old Damage (Avg.)|New Damage (Avg.)|Diff.|h

-Bows (Elite)
|WSM|Old Damage (Avg.)|New Damage (Avg.)|Diff.|h

-Xbows (Elite)
|WSM|Old Damage (Avg.)|New Damage (Avg.)|Diff.|h

-Throwing Weapons (Elite)
|WSM|Old Damage (Avg.)|New Damage (Avg.)|Diff.|h

-REM Precision Cleaver has WSM[5] but the damage is that for WSM[-5].
-REM Reduce the differences of MinDmg/MaxDmg ratios.

***Master Ancient Scroll [#o3d3d435]
-Sold at Gheed.
-An '''Master Ancient Scroll''' (MAS) has a property of '''Scroll Level 0''' at first.
-You can increase the Scroll Level of an MAS by 1, by cubing with an Ancient Scroll (AS) of one higher number than the Scroll Level. The AS is consumed.
(Ex. An MAS of Scroll Level 0 requires AS #1 to be upgraded to Level 1. You can't skip a certain level. If you have no AS #2, you can never upgrade your MAS to Level 2.)
-In Secret Recipes, you can use an MAS as an any AS lower than or equal to its level. An MAS of level 49 can substitute for all AS but AS #50, for example.
-Once your MAS hit level 25, you don't need to carry Ancient Tome #1-25. Once your MAS hit level 50, you don't need to carry Ancient Tome #26-50. This saves the time to put in and take out the Ancient Scrolls when you use Secret Recipes, and discarding Ancient Tomes will prevent the "Too Many Items" error.
-Some Secret Recipes must be changed so that multiple recipes don't require the same materials.
--Secret Recipe 4: Crafted Weapon/Armor (Normal) + 2 P-Gems + DS + FH
--Secret Recipe 5: Crafted Weapon/Armor (Normal) + 2 P-Gems + DS + FH
--Secret Recipe 24: Crafted Weapon/Armor (Exceptional) + 4 P-Gems + 2 DS + 2 FH
--Secret Recipe 25: Crafted Weapon/Armor (Exceptional) + 4 P-Gems + 2 DS + 2 FH
--Secret Recipe 31-36: Gloves/Belt/Boots + 1-2 Elixirs

1. The damage augmentor charm does not have any effect with Dragon Talon in the LCS window. I don't know if it doesn't work, or if it's just not displayed. I hope it works, because Dragon Talon could sure use the help. 
2. Elemental damage from equipment is not displayed with Dragon Talon in the LCS window. It does work with the skill though.
