The Riftwatchers, come to places whre "the Rift", the eldritch dimension between worlds, has become thin. They specialize in quick movement to counter foes with uncomprehendable power and size. The watchers were once united as "The Grey Legion", reminiscent of the one they call "Riftwalker". A grey knight acompanied by a wolf. Since the Legionwas a caravan of wandering hunters, they needed to learn to survive in the corrupted wilds. Therefore they specialized in using their surroundings for their advantage.
(Art and Lore based on the Abyswatchers from Dark Souls 3)

This class is a Definitive Shuffler relying on quick movement and accurate positioning.
Almost each ability moves him and has different effects depending on his position.
Watchers are best paired with other agile classes. Grouped with other watcher they benefit from passive bonuses.
As a survival expert he is well equipped for long runs, benefiting from the ability to gather resources and sustaining himself passivly. His stealth mechancis and the swiftstep ability allow him to avoid damage on demand, to compensate for his low defensive stats.
A quick, tactical and adaptable hunter !

Hey does he have an 'official name', like dismas?

I really love the theme and flavor of this class. Since liking the first one of yours I tried, I'm trying them all and gotta say, you really are good at this!

THAT SAID, a team full of riftwatchers who all have chameleon dance and the cat-tail flute camping skill is the absolute single most broken thing I've ever seen in this game, lol. Camp early, flute up for speed, then everbody stealths start of combat when they reliably go first every battle. Point and laugh as monsters just make that DONK sound (pass) on their turn every time until they're dead.

I alredy got permission to do classes fo the bloodborn skins, but at the moment there is not plenty time since im busy with other projects. They will come eventually ;)
And thanks for your encouragement.

Given all the amazing, AMAZING Dark Souls-inspired new classes that grace the workshop, I'm a bit surprised that no one has decided to make any new classes inspired by Bloodborne. We already have heroes that transition between two modes, a similar mechanic could serve as an interesting way to implement the Hunters' Trick Weapons.

My bad i did a patch and the default upload mode was "hidden" i ddnt notice unti now. its back up again

I know this is the wrong place, but I can't seem to find anywhere else to do it. You put a mod up today called like the Voivode or something, and I downloaded to it, then literally an hour later or so, it dissapeared. I'm assuming it was taken down or something. Any update on that, or clarification? I was pretty thrilled with it.

Tried it with and without Herbs of The Wild, as well as trying it with Herbs of The Wild over and under Rift Watcher in the load order, however I did not try placing Herbs of The Wild over Lectern of Time, though it does say to keep that at the top of the load order I believe.
CarnifeX  [author] Aug 19 @ 5:20am 
Icould not imageiine why. did you test to load it without herbs of the wild. Did you try to use one over the other in load order.
I don't know why lectren might bee incopatible no one reported such things yet
Fuedrakia Aug 19 @ 4:34am 
Both Riftwatcher as well as Herbs of The Wild seem to be incompatible with Lectern of Time, it crashes the game every time I attempt to go through the Lectern of Time with these mods installed.

idk if this issue has been noticed but I noticed when I go to the weald to fight the hag without hotW( crashes the weald as well ) with the riftwalker enabled it crashes when going to fight the hag but when I don't have it on it doesn't any , just thought I bring that up
