The ancient order of the Dragonslayer Knights are well known for their skilled use of the cross spear which is a weapon of the gods imbued with the strength of lightning.They channel this lightning into powerful electric attacks designed to penetrate the armor of the order's ancient enemies.

This mod will add a new religious class to Darkest Dungeon, The Dragonslayer!
The Dragonslayer is an agile class which moves quickly around the battlefield waiting for the perfect moment to strike,
each attack the Dragonslayer makes will both increase his speed and dodge making him the perfect combatant for dealing with large threats, When his trusty cross spear fails the Dragonslayer can channel the power of the gods to summon powerful lightning which can penetrate even the most toughest of armor.
Using this power is tiring however as each time the Dragonslayer uses one of his electric abilities he will lose a small amount of speed and dodge.

The artwork for this class was made by AceroSteel whose other work can be found here: https://www.nexusmods.com/darkestdungeon/users/3564670/?tb=mods&pUp=1
He makes very high quality skins on the Nexus and you should definitely go check them out.

--Why are there 2 Dragonslayer Classes?--
I asked permission to AceroSteel for use of his skin but it turned out there was a communication error and now we have two different Dragonslayer Classes, I had finished this class a few days ago but I wanted to wait to make this mod public until AceroSteel gave me the go ahead.
Caedwyn's Dragonslayer Class is more support focused than mine and I made sure that you will be able to use both at the same time without there being any problem, You can find Caedwyn's Class here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1207974198

I have been working on this class for a couple of weeks now and I hope you all like it!
I look forward to comments on suggestions on how to improve the class and it's balance, I tried to balance this class around the base classes of the game but it's difficult to do that by yourself, please post any suggestions in the special thread for it as it makes lengthy posts much easier to read.

I like this class btw, really nice so far!
I also love the Druid, didn't try the others yet.

Oh that's why, I was seeing -105 dodge for 7 rounds, but it drops to -5 for 6 rounds after, my bad xD

It's the small debuff that should last for 7 rounds, same as the other DPS/DODGE buff/debuff on all the other skills.
The Large debuff should only last for 1 round.

Considering his low damage and necessity for building around the movement his skills require I'd say he's just right where he is, especially considering how damning taking any attacks in CoM has become, but I personally feel that the CoM enemies-crit-all-the-time balance patch was sort of a mistake so take from that what you will.

He was balanced around the base game where most battles last at most 3 rounds, now with Color of Madness out I might have to look at his dodge buff again. putting a duration on it might be a good solution

Just tried this class, so you can just ignore lightning skills and stack dodge endlessly? How is that balanced? His buffs should stack for 3 rouds, not for 1 battle. This is the most broken class i've ever tried.

Question.. is thundering slam supposed to be green?
Living Joker Jul 1 @ 2:13pm 
He's interesting, but considering he needs to dance to do anything aside from using attacks that debuff himself, I'd expect his accuracy or damage to be higher. Shines in long fights though, I'll give him that.
