Enemy Randomization (Standalone)

Description
Enemies will receive permanent, random buffs upon starting combat. These range from standard buffs like Fortified and Hasted, to several custom statuses that improve abilities like leadership or retribution, or add new skills, or give various strengths and weaknesses, like boosting dodge chance but reducing elemental resists. Enemies also receive a chance to drop extra loot, possibly even rares and legendaries.

In addition, an enemy has a 15% chance to become one of several types of champions, which mostly add several skills and major stat bonuses, but gives this character extra good loot. Bosses (e.g., Alexander) that become champions are guaranteed to drop an extra legendary. All of this is to force you to adapt, making the game more challenging without just bloating stats outright, and make combat more rewarding.

This mod is incompatible with any mod that uses the Base.charScript, such as my Bard mod. Use the Dependent version of this mod if you use my bard mod! If you use my Luck Redux mod, you'll have to use my bard mod to get both my luck redux and enemy randomization mods working together.

See Nexus site for a customizable version, which can be used to disable the mod or make various tweaks:

Mod isn't working for DE. Problem is despite multiple subscribe and unsubscribe the mod doens't appear in the documents mod folder, or in the workshop folder within the steam files. It just doesn't download

Does this mod also randomize the spells/skills npcs/enemies recieve, even from installed mods?
Id love to see this mod do that, how epic would it be to have a ton of mods installed (like i do) an never know what random skills/spells an npc/enemy has... If its not a thing, please make it a thing!!!!

I'm going to update the mod for the definitive edition so it is more customizable.

It may require a new game to take effect. Unfortunately I'm not sure if those variables can be updated midgame. Also make sure you have deleted the .pak from your documents folder.

I believe you could also just delete the whole RandomEnemyBuffs event and that would work. Then under the Champions event, you could replace %ChampionChance with your own number, like .25 for a 1 in 4 chance for champions. The champions will still get champion loot. Hope that works for you.

Update: editing enemybuff.script did not stop them from getting random buffs, did I miss a step?

Unpacked the mod, nice notes man makes this really easy to modify.

I wanted to turn off the random buffs but increase the rate of champions, so I set BuffsOn to 0 in EnemyBuff.charScript, but it says that is linked to the loot table. Are champion enemy loot tables increased or does mean they lose the bonus loot as well since the random buffs are off?
