*Changes in ES 3.00 R6 [#q238d811]

#contents


**Overview [#i6c45a79]
-This version contains a lot of major changes. If you don't like to read all of the long chage log, please read this section at least.

***Character Compatibility [#m6d38b82]
-Old characters are still playable, but you may want to create a new character because;
--Each character is given 12 more skill points. Initial stat points are reduced instead, but you may consider skill points are more important.
--Amazon and Barbarian Skills have been reworked. (2 new skills have been added for Amazon and 5 new skills have been added for Barbarians.) If you can't reallocate the skill points by PlugY, you may want to create a new character.
--Stat Points now works differently. If you can't reallocate the stat points by PlugY, you may want to create a new character.
---Now 1 point in Vitality always grants +2 To Life and 1 point in Energy grants +2 To Mana. Instead, characters automatically gain much more Life and Mana per level.
(This means now spending skill points in Strength, Dexterity or Energy isn't so disadvantageous.)
---Now actual skill points in Strength or Dexterity grants +1 To Max Damage per 4 points.
---Now actual skill points in Energy grants +1% To F/C/L/P Skill Damage and Summon's Melee Damage per 3 points.
---Now actual skill points in Energy grants +1% To Magic/Wind Skill Damage per 4 points.

***Item Compatibility [#y973ca8a]
-All items are basically compatible with R6, but please note;
--All jewels are temporarily converted to tokens.
---You need to untokenize them to use them again.
---Forgings on magic/rare jewels are removed and the materials are refunded at that time.
---You can't apply Skill Tab Forging if the target jewel has a skill bonus already.
(Please don't try, or you may lose the skill bonus on the jewel.)




**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 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% Damage per Level -> +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)
-Fixed the bug that Precision Cleaver has a lower base damage than supposed.
-Fixed the bug that Reziarfg and Reporb are wrongly colored black.
-Fixed the bug that Decipherer Jackpots don't happen.


**System Changes [#n2bc579f]
***Rescaling Skill Levels [#t6d2ca2f]
http://phrozenkeep.planetdiablo.gamespy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48450
-As explained in this thread, the skill level is capped at 100, and if once your main skill hits level 100, it's very difficult to improve your damage any more. So, to make the room for further improvement:
--"+2 skill bonus" on a jewel (ex. Skill Affix + Tab Forging) is prohibited.
--To make up for this, all skills are generally improved so that they do more damage with less skill levels.

-Due to the change of jewel forging, all existing Jewels are temporarily converted into tokens when you update ES to R6.
--Jewel tokens remain even if they are socketed in an item, but don't work until untokenized.
--You can untokenize jewel tokens by cubing.
--Forgings on rare/magic jewels are removed and the materials are refunded when untokenized.
--Forgings on unique jewels aren't removed.
--Mods on unique jewels aren't rerolled, but some mods will be updated.

***Too Many Items Error Fix [#u9df5ce5]
-(Win) Removed the save data size limit (8KB) of D2 to get rid of "Too Many Items" error. The bundled PlugY is customized for this fix, so please don't install any other PlugY.

***Character Stats Changes [#s171a974]
-Life/Mana Increment per Stat/Level
--Changed the stat bonus so that 1 point in Vitality always increases the life by 2 and 1 point in Energy always increased the mana by 2.
(Now investing into Vitality isn't always the best option.)
--Tweaked the Life/Mana per level so that all classes have more Life/Mana with less Vitality/Energy.

**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. 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)

-Socketing following items no longer makes the target ''Mercenary Only'', because +2 Skill Bonus on a jewel is prohibited.
--6 Jewels on normal Weapons and Body Armor
--4 Jewels on normal Helms and Shield
--3 Jewels on normal Charms

-Reduced the stack size of following throwing potions.
--Choking Gas Potion, Exploding Potion: 500 -> 300
--Strangling Gas Potion, Fulminating Potion: 500 -> 100

-Reduced the req Str of Axe (32 -> 27) and Large Axe (35 -> 30).
***Charm Changes [#a8d3fced]
-Magic/Rare Large Charms, Grand Charms, Square Charms and Odd Charms can be tokenized.
(Unique Charms and White Odd Charms can't be tokenized.
-Abolished the negative FRW charm, because now you can remove unwanted FRW by Magic Eraser, and the game becomes buggy if you have too much negative FRW.
-For a technical reason, existing negative MF charms are also deleted. Please make new ones. (Sorry) 

***Jewel Forging Changes [#x7bc8d80]
-Prohibited Skill Tab Forging to jewels that have a skill bonus already.
(Please also see [[Rescaling Skill Levels:http://miyoshino.la.coocan.jp/eswiki/?ChangesInR6#t6d2ca2f]])

-Stat Forging can also be applied to magic/rare jewels.

***Base Item Changes [#e115fddb]
-Rebalanced the base damage of elite weapons.

(This is because the weapons with less max damage benefit less from '''Enhanced Max Damage Per Level'''.)

--Increased the base damage of fast/normal weapons and reduced that of slow weapons.
(This is because weapon speed is less important than weapon damage in ES.)

**Skill Changes [#q3fbf778]
***Rescaling Skill Damage Per Level [#cb04da31]
-Generally improved the skill damage especially in high slvls.
(Please also see [[Rescaling Skill Levels:http://miyoshino.la.coocan.jp/eswiki/?ChangesInR6#t6d2ca2f]])
(Please also see [[Rescaled Skill Damage:http://miyoshino.la.coocan.jp/eswiki/?RescaledSkillDamage]])

***Amazon [#hcb00913]
-''Fend''
--Max Attack Number: 7 -> 4
--Animation Rollback: 60% -> 50%
(Now the attack sequence once stops after the 4th swing. The average speed of each swing is slightly faster than before. Please see the difference at the cauclators.)
http://miyoshino.la.coocan.jp/d2asc_1.php <- Old Calculator
http://miyoshino.la.coocan.jp/d2asc_r6.php <- New Calculator 

-''Dodge''
--Required Level: 6 -> 12
--Prerequisites: None -> ''Sway''
--Also includes the fuction of ''Avoid'' and ''Evade''
--D/A/E animation takes only 1 frame with all weapons
--D/A/E chance: (3-50)% -> 20% (Fixed)
--+1% DR per base point
--No defense bonus
--Synergy
---Sway: +1% Chance to D/A/E per level

-''Avoid'' -> ''Sway''
--Required Level: 12 -> 6
--Prerequisites: Dodge -> None
--Defense Bonus: 15 +15 +30 +45 +60 +60
--Synergy
---Dodge: +10% Defense per level (Increases the flat defense bonus of Sway by 10%)
---Petrify: +10% Defense per level (Increases the flat defense bonus of Sway by 10%)

-''Evade'' -> ''Petrify''
--Required Level: 24 -> 6
--Prerequisites: Avoid -> Inner Sight
--An Inner Sight like skill that slows target's Run/Walk speed.
--Doesn't overwrite curses, Inner Sight and Slow Missiles.
--Slower Run/Walk: 33% + 3% per Level
--Radius: 1.33 yard + 0.67 yard per 3 Base Points
--Duration: 4 seconds
--Synergy
---Inner Sight: +0.12 Second per Level
---Slow Missiles: +3% Slower Run/Walk per Level
--Unlike Decrepify, attack speed is not affected (so ranged attackers still fire), but the slow Run/Walk effect is much stronger.
--Suggested Usage: Slow fleeing monsters like Blowpipe Fetish. Slow a dangerous boss pack. Break up a large pack into small groups. (The default radius is narrow, so you can selectively slow monsters.) Keep a monster pack tight so that Lightning Fury effectively works. (For this purpose you need to invest some base point to increase the radius.)

***Rescaling Defense% Skills [#ec67ad88]
-Reduced monsters' Attack Rating by 25% at most. (Less reduction in early difficulty.)
-Reduced Defense% bonus from skills by 30%.
-This is intended to ease the inequality that the classes/builds with no native Defense% skills are significantly disadvantaged, because monsters are balanced against very defensive characters.

--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 will be offset by the -25% AR of monsters.
(Less defensive characters will simply benefit from -25% AR of monsters.)

-''Defiance''
--Defense Bonus: 100% + 25%/lvl -> 100% + 15%/lvl

-''Holy Shield''
--Defense Bonus: 25% + 15%/lvl -> 20% + 10%/lvl

***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

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.
