Playstyle
Magic schools in Divinity: Original Sin 2 have been designed to facilitate user creativity of playstyles and builds; this Hydrosophist Overhaul is no exception. With the improvements made to all Hydrosophist skills, along with the introduction of over 15 brand-new skills, this overhaul bolsters the creativity of Sourcerers. Although magic schools are essentially an open book, I have identified 4-key playstyles I think you’ll all enjoy:
  • Atlantean
    A battlemage able to utilise the currents to control the battlefield.
  • Tidecaller
    Gifted with the ability to manipulate water, tidecallers can simultaneously heal allies and damage enemies.
  • Icevein
    An ice mage able to deal devastating damage and keep enemies frozen still.
  • Frostsworn
    A frost paladin, specialising in Magic Armour and Freezing effects.
Build cards found in the image gallery at the top of this mod page give some high-level pointers into how to utilise these playstyles effectively. My personal favourite is the Tidecaller, an enchanter playstyle which boasts surprising damage.

Skills
There are many skills in this class overhaul, so I have made an online document containing all of the skill descriptions. Please click the link below to access it.


You may have noticed some skills from Divinity: Original Sin EE making a return with some additional effects, such as Conjure Ice Elemental and Ice Wall. I thought it was about time to bring back some old favourites to provide new and interesting build paths.

Additionally, as a comprehensive overhaul, this mod also reworks a lot of the basegame Hydrosophist spells, and I have compiled these changes into a doc:


New Hydrosophist Weapons
Tridents are new spear-based weapons (meaning they can be used with skills such as Whirlwind) which deal Water-damage and scale with Intelligence - perfect to make a splash! Tridents also grant access to a new skill - Trident Slide.



Weapon types include: Tridents, 1H Water Swords, and 2H Water Swords.The new weapons can be purchased from Evelynn, the new Hydro vendor.


Evelynn, the Winter's Heart is an expert in hydro magic, and she is able to sell the party skillbooks. Evelynn also sells crafted skillbooks at levels 5 and 13. She can be found throughout the game in various locations:
  • Fort Joy:
    • Next to the tent east of the Fort's initial entrance, on the way to Beast (shipwreck).
    • Next to the lifespring in Armadia's Sanctuary.
  • Reaper's Coast:
    • Aboard the Lady Vengeance. She is at the helm of the ship.
    • Near the Eastern entrance to Driftwood, she is below a wooden platform, looking out toward the sea.
  • Nameless Isle: On the landing shore as you arrive.
  • Arx: In the city, next to a bench by the Western Bridge.

Basegame Hydrosophist vendors also stock the new non-crafted skills and weaponry, and the new vendors can be toggled on/off whenever you like using the Odinomicon mod settings menu from OdinCore.

Does this mod add a duplicate Hail Strike under Hydrosophist and Sourcery called '| Hail Strike |'?

Any chance for healing ritual to return to a healing spell for enemies as well? It was a solid skill for a cleric build and compliments well the necromancer overhaul with the extra decay skills. Cheers for all the work!

Does this work with the pet power gift bag like the rest of your overhauls? @Odinblade

when it says the ice elemental "at summoning 10" what does that mean

The Kraken skill is useless, the damage is horrific for how much it costs

when something says deals damage to enemies it should only affect enemies not allies
